  • "Long history on your file for this property regarding our Feb stay."

    Lack of hot water was sorted by Stu during his courtesy visit, thank you. As there was so much attention needed to this property especially the soiled mattresses I feel the owner should be prepared to compensate us.

  • "After finally finding the property,up a long dark bumpy farm track, very hard to find as no house signs ,and lots of other properties being so difficult to find as there was no lights We were very impressed when entering the semi detached old farm house , very quaint and oldy worldy , log burner but nice feature Steel spiral staircase quaint to go up to bedroom."

    beautiful views down to the sea approx mile to walk mind ..... We were determined to have a lovely new year here as my wife just recovering from breast cancer, we soon got the heating working and we're lovely and cosey , however it ended there as there was no hot water and no one we could get hold of to fix , we had to boil kettles of water to wash up etc No bath no shower for three days Dispite ringing Sykes on numerous occasions to find out why ........ No help very poor service , a call from the owners would be nice to explain ??? There was five adults non of us could get HOT WATER , so annoying spoilt what could of been a lovely much needed break . We never complain and like to give credit where due , but sorry the hot water episode spoilt it for all of us

  • "A sign at the gate or near the grass to indicate where the house is would really help & more light leading to the house on the grass or near the gate or generally near the house to light up where it is otherwise it is very difficult to find in the dark."

    I took a torch with me as indicated on the instructions for arriving but this wasn’t enough.

  • "Lovely property with stunning sea views in an exceptional rural location."

    Other reviews have mentioned slow internet and poor water pressure which is definitely true but did not in any way spoil our holiday. However,the cleanliness was not of a high standard and it felt like the house had only been surface cleaned especially after dropping something and looking under the sofas! The fridge and freezer were a little bit problematic but the clothes pulley was great for airing and drying clothing. Overall,a great house which need some TLC but sadly we would not return again next year.

  • "This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the cottage which has wonderful sea views and is in a lovely location and we very happy to rebook, sadly the cleanliness standard as fallen, the cobwebs were numerous in all rooms, the windows needed a clean and there appeared to be mouse dropping beside the tv unit with the mouse responsible paying us a visit on our last evening there."

    We would love to revisit if these problems were sorted out and would also recommend improved water pressure, Wi-Fi and smart tv.

  • "The property lacks a dishwasher sadly which in a house for 6 people, I feel , is a must."

    This meant that lots of the plates , glasses , cups and particularly oven trays were not very clean. The oven itself was very greasy inside which meant that it smoked and smelt. I did leave a note about this. There is nowhere to dry washing ( no line outside or airer to drape clothes onto) . There is a small pulley clothes airer in the kitchen suitable for light use but meant that everything had a kitchen smell. The other main issue is that if taps are being used downstairs , or washing machine is on , or toilets are flushed, you cannot use the bathroom facilities upstairs, not even to wash your hands as no water runs ! Again , in a house for six people, this is not acceptable. The position of the house and the views are amazing and more than made up for the issues mentioned. We had a wonderful time , thank you. We felt the property was good for a family of four but not 6 adults sharing the facilities.

  • "Hi I am awaiting a call back after speaking to an agent in your office last week about misrepresentation of the details."

    Cleanliness dreadful. Views amazing. Conversion also fabulous.

    Thank you for your feedback, we have been unable to find any details regarding the property being incorrectly described, the property is not detached and website photos do show this, it is unfortunate that you have thought this was a detached property. Property Owner

  • "We stayed for 4 nights and did enjoy our stay but think the property could be updated, to make stays more enjoyable."

    For example no towels provided (most places do this), no dishwasher, TV very old and remotes not working (batteries need checking), fridge and freezer need replacing (ruined a lot of food we brought) … for the price we paid, I’d expect more!

  • "We've had a really great holiday at Apple Orchard House!"

    Our second visit and two weeks this time. The all round views from the house are just superb, the property is spacious and well laid out and its so good to be able to walk down to the beach with the family and then walk for as far as you want. Also the overall position in Northumberland is excellent for getting to all the castles and other attractions in the county

The property

Alnmouth 2.5 miles.

Overlooking the stunning scenery of the hamlet of High Buston, near Alnmouth, Apple Orchard Cottage boasts seaside views and countryside walks, making it the ideal property for a family looking to explore Northumberland.

Be welcomed by the beautiful exterior of this property, one where a backdrop of scenic landscapes create a sense of wonder as you park off-road and unpack with ease, noticing the picturesque cottage style gardens and mature trees framing the property, a place where you will be able to picnic in the sunshine in the warmer months.

Separated by a brick wall with an open archway, the kitchen/diner and sitting room both boast traditional wooden ceilings with roof beams and wooden flooring adding a sense of history to this space, and the open nature of the kitchen/diner adds a homely feel that will entice any budding chef to cook up a storm which can be enjoyed in the dining area.

Settle down in the sitting room beside the welcoming glow of a woodburning stove as you enjoy a coffee amongst the homely décor and reflect upon your most recent adventure, and from here large windows allow in seas of light and fantastic views of the local scenery.

On the ground floor you will discover a bathroom where you can enjoy a warming soak amongst the bubbles before settling down for the night in one of the three bedrooms, a ground-floor double with storage, a ground-floor twin perfect for children and for the third bedroom, ascend the quirky spiral staircase to find a double bedroom with tall ceilings punctuated by wooden beams and a handy en-suite.

Alnmouth is a fantastic seaside town, and you will be delighted to find that, through a selection of countryside walks, the local beach is only a short walk from the property.

From here, you can begin the coastal path which follows the rugged coastline to Beadnell, a 13 mile walk through a selection of breath-taking scenery.

The town itself offers a selection of heart-warming pubs and restaurants for you to enjoy, as well as England’s Oldest 9 Hole Links Golf Course!

More beautiful locations can be explored alongside the River Aln and the local estuary, a haven for water birds, and you can travel a little further to find the historic countryside town of Alnwick, where the impressive local castle is just waiting to be explored.

Make a family holiday to remember with a stay at Apple Orchard House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £75.
