  • "We had such a lovely week, a real home from home."

    Beautiful, scenic, peaceful location, teaming with wildlife wherever you pointed your eyes or ears. Everything you could want is supplied from an amenities point of view, only missing a pizza cutter. Great views from the windows and terrace, walks on your doorstep, super days out nearby and great pubs very close for food and drink. I can't eulogize enough about the cottage or location.

  • "A stunning setting with the fabulous sea views and the wonderful cattle in the farmyard."

    The host coudn't be more helpful and welcoming. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. In spite of the cold weather this April we were warm and cosy. The location was brilliant for walks in all directions. Would recomend this lovely place.

  • "Such a great location and the enclosed garden a real bonus when Collie Jim needed a moment to let off steam between all the lovely walks."

    This is just a great place to stay whatever the weather though was lucky with good visibility all week. One comment - boot rack good but a tray underneath or next to would be an idea ( I forgot to take old newspapers!)

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the Northumberland coast."

    The Terrace and the garden make a lovely addition to the cottage, perfect for children and dogs. The owner was welcoming and friendly. It is easy to see why almost all the comments in the Visitor Book where from repeat visitors.

    Very clean, very well equipped and really comfortable. We enjoyed seeing the cows in the farmyard and local fields. Lots of lovely walks nearby and the gardens at the nearby Howick Hall were so lovely in the autumn sunshine. Many thanks to Marjorie and Tom, we loved our stay.
