  • "Sandy toes is a lovely place to stay, we love it and the area it’s in, just a short walk from the front, what a fantastic view."

    The cottage has everything you need just take clothes and food and you are sorted. People on the street are friendly, and so are the locals in Newbiggin. We can not wait to go back.

    Welcome back! Thank you for yet another wonderful review. We trust you had a great break Reviews are extremely controversial, but if a customer returns several and more times then we take that as the biggest compliment, and recommendation. Thank you! See you again soon. Property Owner

    The house was comfortable, clean, tidy and had everything we needed for our week stay. No problem parking right outside the house, big plus. Newbiggin is a very dog and people friendly town. Hope to return to Sandy Toes for another great holiday in the future.

    Close to the very nice beach. Maybe could use blackout curtains in bedroom as light outside shines in the room. Had a good time.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased you had a good holiday. The deep set window design is not an easy one to completely block the street light- for future guests the window has a vertical blind. Double lined heavy curtains with a thermal layer to keep the cold out. Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Sandy Toes with our dog."

    Comfortable and clean cottage with everything you need, in a quiet location and only a short walk to the dog friendly area of the beach. I was a bit worried about the on-road parking as it’s unrestricted and being so close to the beach I thought people might park there on days out, but that wasn’t the case at all and we were there during school holidays. We were able to park directly outside the cottage no problem.

    We are really pleased you had such an enjoyable stay. We are very lucky with the parking outside the cottage, even in the summer as it is so close to the beach, it is still a lovely quiet residential road. Property Owner

    Perfect location for the promenade, beach and access to shops & cafes etc. Very clean and well maintained. The sofas aren't all that comfortable but that would be our only comment. Otherwise, it was really super!

  • "The property came up to expectations as described."

    Other than the fact I wouldn't describe it as a cottage! Perhaps because we live in one! Sandy Toes is a very comfortable, cosy and well equipped property, providing every thing we needed for a lovely holiday week. One of its greatest attractions is it's proximity to the beach with lovely walks along the sea front where there are several options for a coffee, snack, drink and the best ice-cream! Would definitely come again. Thank you Sykes!

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are so pleased you had a comfortable stay, and found everything you needed. Our location is perfect for the beach, and local amenities all within walking distance. We would love to welcome you back again. Our property was originally built to house workers in the surrounding mining villages, these rows of terraced houses were known as miners cottages, thats why we call it a cottage, which is very specific to this area, and unlike the typical ‘chocolate box ‘ cottage people often envisage. We like to maintain it as a simple and cosy dwelling. Property Owner
