  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and well equipped.

  • "A delightful cottage, well maintained, clean and enjoyable stay."

  • "The kitchen is very good and the local Co-Op well stocked."

    Portly customers might struggle to sit round the table. We knew there wasn’t a washing machine and came prepared, but unlike most Youth Hotels there’s no drying room. Stronger light bulbs on the landing and a re-located ‘doggy gate’ would improve safety (we 4 were between 59 & 86). Different coloured towels would be better. More supportive mattresses would have helped us ancient mortals. The viability of the property may change once the proposed yellow line parking is implemented as there isn’t enough paid parking half a mile away in Seahouses; we gather that zealous traffic wardens penalise pavement parking outside the cottage and only very small vehicles can be parked directly in front, although with significant skill we managed to park a Mini Cooper in the rear yard through the garage (which is off-bounds)

  • "This is a lovely well equipped warm cottage which has clearly been looked after."

    It is in a good location. I really have no complaints at all .. the owner was very helpful and easy to contact about a minor query.

  • "Had a wonderful stay in this very dog friendly cottage with our 2 small dogs."

    Bed was comfy and facilities were spot on. Lovely and warm, plenty of hot water. Back yard handy for first and last doggy tiddles. Nice pleasant walk for beach or shop, harbour and pub etc. Dog friendly pubs, plenty of take-aways. Had Indian from Spices, wasn’t very spicy, the other one is fantastic. Best chippy is Lewis’s. Ideal place to visit Holy Island, Bamburgh and Beadnell close by and other places further away. Hostess Louise keeps in touch, very friendly. Would definitely return.

  • "This cottage has the potential to be great, and is absolutely in a brilliant location."

    A few things: 1. The shower head is completely disgusting and needs sorting out immediately. The owner cannot claim ignorance of this as it is mentioned in the review book in the cottage. 2. Multiple blown light bulbs...a pet hate of mine...but really simple to check for. 3. You really need a washing machine... Otherwise, the communications from the owner were great, and we had a nice time. Sort the shower out...a new head costs about £5 from Lidl!

    We were moved to another property, a bigger property and had a lovely week. Both cottages were absolutely lovely, real homes away from home. We would stay in either again in a heartbeat.

  • "The information, customer service and communication from booking until after our stay was exceptional."

    Hastings dairy was fantastic - so clean throughout and amazing facilities. The owners had thought of everything and the accommodation was well-equipped with lots of extra comforts. One of the nicest holiday rentals we have had the pleasure of staying in. Fabulous location too - a bus stop only a few metres away and a short walk into seahouses. We hope to return very soon - thank you!

    ). Very well furnished and comfortable. The owner has thought of everything! The heating wouldn't work one eve & Louise came straight away and got it working.
