  • "We loved our stay at Garden House, The owner was very helpful with a query I had before we arrived."

    I feel sure that had we needed help whilst there we would have had the same help but they were very discreet and left us to our own devices. The house was very comfortable & spacious. Constant hot water, good reception wi-fi & excellent kitchen facilities. Approx 20 min walk into Alnmouth.

  • "The property was clean and spacious."

    .beds comfortable...in an excellent location...although attached to the owners property still felt very private . Unfortunately our stay was spoiled by the fact that overnight road closure and repairs resurfacing the road and merges started on the Monday night directly outside the property resulted in 4 nights of restricted sleep..lights alarms from vehicles moving back and forward Jack hammers the lot. although not the owners fault they certainly would have been aware this was happening..had we been told would have cancelled and booked something else..this really impacted on me and my partner's enjoyment. The price we paid was not a small amount and for us all the holiday was completely ruined. Will not be returning I personally feel it was dishonest not to inform us as the owners would certainly have had advanced notice

    Only thing missing is a downstairs toilet.

  • "We had a wonderful week at this cottage."

    It's absolutely huge and we found it very well equipped. It's set well back from the road along a long drive so there were no issues getting in and out off the main road and there was a pavement to get over onto a nice path to Alnmouth. We spotted a hedgehog, rabbits and even a deer during our stay! Really well placed for beaches at Alnmouth and Warkworth and we enjoyed visiting NT Wallington and Howick Gardens. Would definitely return, thank you for a lovely stay

  • "We were immediately impressed by the spaciousness of the "cottage" and, over the week, by its location."

    Being on the X18/20 bus route is a boon. All the equipment was in good working order - with instructions available if needed. Even Henry was well looked after. The only minor niggle was that one or two of the storage spaces were a little dusty. Although we haven't re-read the property description, it exceded our expections. Thanks fo making it avaiable and sorry we ran out of time to comment in the visitors book.

  • "Lovely holiday home, lots of space for a big family!"

    We were amazed about how big it was and pictures just don’t do it justice. Ideal for our dog too with an enclosed garden and a boot room to sleep. Ideal location with a bus stop right outside the property that takes you into Alnmouth or surrounding areas. Just up the street to the left is a play area and another down by the beach which was also perfect for the younger children. Overall we wish we had stayed long!!

  • "The property is in a beautiful setting with a lovely garden and drive up where you can park with ease."

    The entrance takes you into a huge living room through to a large dining room onto a big farmhouse style kitchen with table and chairs. There's a boot room off the kitchen with lots of space for all dog and walking related gear. The upstairs has 3 beautiful bedrooms that are very spacious and a bathroom big enough to dance round. The house is a good size for a family with children and grandparents...we loved it.

  • "A fantastic property with plenty of space for all the adults and children ."

    An incredibly comfortable place to stay with fabulous 'squashy' sofas and lovely beds. Liked the feeling of space from the high ceilings and the tasteful decoration. The enclosed garden was a fabulous place for the grandchildren to play and have fun safely. A brilliant base for all amenities and yet quiet and peaceful too. Won't hesitate to return, in fact have already booked up and will recommend to our friends.

    All the space inside, the garden, and the location of the house all added to make a lovely relaxing holiday. We had everything we needed.
