  • "This is the perfect holiday cottage for a stay on the Northumberland Coast."

    We really cant recommend it enough. Location is perfect with beautiful views and and a short walk to one of the many enormous unspoilt beaches. The cottage has everything (and I do mean everything) you could possibly need, is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We still have lots to explore so we will be back!

  • "We have recently had a brilliant holiday at Island View Cottage."

    The situation of the cottage is perfect as it is an easy 15 min walk to the lovely beach and the coastal path. The cottage was very clean and very well equipped. Beds very comfortable. The welcome pack left was huge with a large selection of treats as well as some essentials. The sitting room and one of the bedrooms has a view over the fields toward the sea and Coquet Island. We had every home comfort while staying here. The only thing to note is that the boiler for the heating is quite noisy, but the owner did show us how to switch it off overnight if we chose to. Other than that this cottage is perfect for a restful holiday and in a good location to visit lots of local attractions and the gorgeous beaches Northumbria is known for.

  • "This is an extremely well-equipped, comfortable cottage with lovely views over the sea/Coquet Island/countryside, situated in a quiet cul de sac."

    You can walk to the beach/dunes in about 10 mins, down the lane. Amble is about 5 mins by car - or an easy cycle ride also possible on the flat, quiet coastal road. Hauxley Nature Reserve, with several hides, is 5 minutes by car "down the road". The largest ever "Welcome Pack" was indeed very welcome, thank you! Pleased to say that the minor issue we had with the central heating was resolved immediately by the very attentive owner, who had not been aware of the problem till then.

  • "The Bungalow was clean, with nice views from the back windows."

    Parking - this was tight, so be prepared. The main double bed room - it could really do with a larger bed. The bathroom - the shower in the bath was weak in pressure, and difficult to set, and the sink drain was almost blocked solid. The hall way toilet - the sink had the same problem as in the bathroom. The kitchen - it was well supplied with most of what was required, however the sinks hot water supply was nothing more than a slow trickle and took ages to feed hot water through, after a few days it diminished to a dribbled. However the worst problem was the noise that the boiler made, especially during the night, having been in the building trade I can tell you it was bad, so again be prepared. The surrounding area was lovely.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to read that you experienced issues during your stay. The property owner would have happily assisted you if you had made him aware at the time of your stay. The issues have since been addressed. Thank you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

    Beautiful view, perfect location with plenty to see & do locally. Exceptional kitchen (we had a successful baking day when the weather was wet!) Many finishing touches that weren’t expected but a nice surprise (welcome treats went down very well!)

    Welcome tray and extra touches inside the cottage were lovely but owners in next door property did not reflect this welcome when our paths crossed.

    The welcome tray on arrival was a beautiful touch with a great selection to please everyone. Having the lovely owners next door was also great as if you needed anything they were very happy to help. We would most definitely recommend this Cottage and we hope to return in the future.

  • "Lovely bungalow."

    Everything provided and more. Nice welcome pack. More than enough towels ,even had beach towels if needed. Beds very comfortable and house was very clean.location was a great base. Parking was fine but only for one car. Shower was electric but had no pressure .bit like standing under a watering can. We had baths instead and there was lots of hot water. Only other negative would be the noise of the boiler. Every night it woke me up. Think its storage heaters at the house so it went on all night every night.

  • "Really the impressing thing was the accommodation and area rather than the booking process though that was straightforward."

    If anything, the bungalow is undersold. The place was immaculate, the welcome pack enjoyable and substantial, the area fabulous and the owners welcoming and helpful.
