  • "Nice quiet location 2 minutes from beach."

    No issues with parking outside the property. Property was very clean, well presented and pleasantly decorated. There was a welcome pack and small toiletries pack which is a lovely touch. Great kitchen and shower was great. The main bedroom is massive with plenty of storage. Tv’s in all the bedrooms as well as lounge and kitchen. Bathroom layout a little awkward with vanity sink and radiator near door. We didn’t find the bed and sofa comfy but that’s down to personal preference. Only seating for 4 in lounge (although extra chair in single bedroom off the lounge could be moved). We would have liked a larger sofa ! We didn’t use the outside sofa due to the weather but this will be great in the summer. The property heating controls were easy to use heated up the rooms quickly. Overall we would recommend this property and we enjoyed our stay

  • "The property was extremely clean and well maintained, the welcome pack was a nice touch."

    I found the bed rather too hard for my comfort but I'm sure it would be perfect for someone else. It is a pity that the reclining chairs and sofa don't and that the bathroom mirror is above the toilet not the basin. The shower is excellent and the kitchen well equipped.

    Would have been useful to know in advance that there was a freezer in the property.

  • "This property was amazing."

    Maintain to a very high standard. Would go to this property again. Near to the bus stop didn't use the car very often. If you are thinking of going to Northumberland why not stay at the Lobsters Pot Retreat you will enjoy. Thank you Sykes Cottages once again for proving you are the best. Philip and Pauline

  • "The house was beautifully furnished and very comfortable."

    There were just a couple of minor things that would make it even better. Move the mirror over the toilet? and re-position over the sink. A washer/drier would be helpful there’s no facility inside or outside to dry clothes. A little night light on the landing would be good.

  • "Great place to stay."

    The only things we could find any fault with were the bathroom mirror which should be over the basin and the square toilet seat did not fit our oval bums.

  • "We had a lovely week in the house."

    It’s well furnished, clean and well thought out. We were worried about parking but we could always park within 50 yards of the house. Short walk to a shop, and the beach front. TVs in the bedrooms were useful, as was the little touches like the gift basket. Lovely base for a beautiful part of the country.

  • "We were really impressed with the standard of the furnishings, fittings, decor, etc."

    , of the house. The kitchen was well-equipped. The house was spotlessly clean and the welcome basket was much appreciated. The location is great - about 5 minutes walk from the beach (or less than that, perhaps). Newbiggin is a nice seaside village which has everything we needed for a short visit. It's also a great location for exploring that bit of the Northumberland coast. The beach is lovely and the bay provides safe swimming (and some other watersports) for those who are into that.

  • "The house was modern and clean with a lovely welcome pack."

    Beds were very comfortable but think pillows need changing. Bathroom walk in shower was great the only let down in there was the missing mirror over sink why over toilet cistern? Husband found it hard to shave and I also really missed it. Kitchen a dream lounge also lovely and comfortable just wires missing for recliner chairs which would of been handy to put up feet after a days outing. Overall had a lovely comfortable stay and if in the area again would definitely stay here. Also parking was never a problem.

  • "Spot on with very clean presentation."

    Couple of minor suggestions. Beautifull furniture. Shame recliners didnt work. Small tables for placing your cuppa on instead of the floor. Town itself has an amazing promenade which we walked a lot. Then the dissapointment of the town. Pubs not serving food. Pubs closed. Had Indian, fabulous. Two visits. Okay Italian. Went twice. No atmosphere. Only couple in on one visit.

  • "This was a really lovely holiday home, very comfortable very clean we enjoyed our stay."

    Only drawbacks ….. nearly all the internal doors squeaked very loudly and annoyingly, a can of WD40 would have sorted this. Surely the cleaner must have been aware of this problem. And the other problem was that there was nowhere to hang wet towels after showering. There was only two of us so we hung them over the shower panel, not ideal. The mirror over the toilet was very strange when there was ample room over the sink.

    Many thanks Nicola and Chris for a wonderful stay in the delightful Lobster Pot Retreat. The lovely welcoming pack was a kind gesture. It is a beautiful property with very attractive decor and soft furnishings, comfy beds, an excellent shower, and friendly neighbours either side. With only a two minute walk to the front, it is a great location. We had some great nature sightings at Church point including a glimpse of a Minke Whale and many wader birds. We really enjoyed the food at The Endeavour cafe, and our favourite meal was at Due Fratelli ( Italian) which was superb. Hope to return soon. Chris and Meryl from Derby
