  • "We have today returned from our very first trip to Northumberland, where we stayed in the Farne Lookout."

    We honestly couldn’t be happier, we have enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked for next new year. We arrived late so it was dark on arrival and the directions take you to the rear of the property, unfortunately the keysafe is at the front of the property so we had to find our way around the other side in the dark, but once we got the keys and got inside, we were immediately impressed. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and very much appreciated after our long drive. The kitchen is very well equipped, the only thing missing that we would’ve used is pint glasses, but this wasn’t a major issue. The living area is very homely, lots of seating to enable everyone to appreciate the spectacular views and lovely decor with the stone wall feature. The balcony overlooking the harbour was a wonderful place to sit with a cup of tea in the mornings, listening to the waves and watching the world go by. The master bedroom also with spectacular views, was very comfortable and plenty of storage space. The quirky “Captain” and “first mate” seats were a lovely touch. The bed was incredibly comfortable! The en-suite was spacious and clean. We did have an issue with a loose spotlight fitting but reported this and a couple of other issues straight away. The floor with the other bedrooms on also had lovely views out to sea from one bedroom and the landing area, the other two bedrooms overlooked the below ground yard which unfortunately was littered with pigeon faeces and quite smelly if the windows were opened, along with the smelly things making noise through the night, however, this is no fault of the owner, there’s not much that can be done about the pesky pigeons! There is netting erected but they seem to have managed to get beneath it, and the neighbours have taken no action so their side is very dirty. The bathroom on this floor is spacious and clean, however with glass block wall provides little privacy, so a teenage girl sharing the bathroom with her male brothers didn’t feel very comfortable using it, so opted to use our en-suite instead. The lower ground floor where the games room & utility room are was very cold. The pictures showed a plug in radiator, however this wasn’t there when we arrived so we had to make sure the doors were closed in the evenings to prevent the cold spreading throughout the house. However, we did totally underestimate the oil heating, and had to turn the thermostats down on the upper floors as it got incredibly hot before we did this. The utility room was very well equipped and as a family with 4 children - was very well used throughout our stay! The games room was a massive hit with the teenagers, although we did have to report a few issues with the snooker table (loose pockets, stains and broken cues). The cues weren’t an issue as they took their own. The firework display on NYE was spectacular. We have visited Disneyworld Florida and all of us said the seahouses display blinded Florida! It was absolutely amazing. All in all, we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already booked again for new year 24/25. We look forward to visiting again.

  • "We enjoyed a 4 night stay in Farne Lookout in October."

    (We are 4 women in our 60s). The beds were very comfortable and the towels and linen were of good quality. The kitchen was well equipped and the views were fantastic. The spiral staircases took a bit of getting used to and wouldn’t be suitable for young children or less mobile guests. The local area was great for long walks, pubs and local shops. However, we were disappointed in the lack of information in the cottage. Not even a guest book to read other visitors’ recommendations. Also, the levels of litter and weeds in the outdoor space by the second floor entrance were a bit at odds with the description and the photos. The bin store needs maintenance and the pigeons on the property nextdoor are causing noise and dirt nuisance. Overall this is a nice place to spend a few days in an attractive part of the world.

  • "This property is in the perfect position to spend some time at seahouses."

    The bedding and beds were all spot on but one of the twin rooms is extremely small and claustrophobic ..I am pleased we only stayed for 2 nights. On the face of it , it looks clean however move down to the bottom staircase and there is alot dust, spiders and cobwebs so has clearly been missed for cleaning for a along time. As others have said it is quite dated and could do with a bit of a refurb. There was also confusion with the stripping of beds as nothing mentioned in the welcome pack at the property but a email was received on our second day of the stay informing us to they were to be stripped . Sadly I did not have access to this email until I returned home so I can only apologise for some of the beds not being stripped. All in all we had a lovely stay and the views and position are just perfect. Many thanks

  • "We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house and location."

    We soon got used to the spiral staircase. There were a couple of things broken when we arrived and we notified the relevant people. There was only one damaged pool queue though and that was the only thing that caused a bit of a problem.

  • "The apartment is really good, with lots of thoughtful extras such as indoor and beach toys for the children."

    It works well for eight guests, with enough dining chairs and seating in the lounge area. A fridge/freezer and a built-in under-counter fridge were welcome for the extra space needed with a large family. We love the location, so close to the small harbour beach and the shops. Would be worth mentioning in the description about the wooden stair gates that are available, although there’s no barrier to the staircase next to the play area on the middle landing. We took an opening stair gate with us. Also, would have been helpful to know about the upstairs bedroom being open plan to the stairs. The wheelie bins need to be dragged up a few steps to the road for them to be emptied. This might be difficult for some guests, as would the spiral staircases between the floors.

  • "Please sharpen some knives!"

    The information regarding rubbish could be improved- eg where to find bottle banks,opening days of waste centre. We were physically unable to haul overfill bin up steps. Otherwise it was delightful! Ps : Is there any possibility of forwarding a pillow left in main bedroom?

  • "Fantastic location, amazing views."

    Loved watching all the harbour activities from the balcony. Some great restaurants and cafe within very short walking distance. Walked to Beadnell and Bamburgh along the beautiful beaches. The property is lovely, and was spotlessly clean, however, there were a few small maintenance issues which I did report back at the start of our stay relating to the kettle, cold water tap, small fridge and TV in the top floor bedroom. Also, when I used the hairdryer in the top floor bedroom it kept stopping and starting. Nothing major, just some small issues which can easily be sorted and hopefully have been for the next holiday makers.

  • "We had a lovely midweek stay, the quality of the sheets and towels were good and the house was well stocked with nice furnishings."

    The only thing we missed was an ice cube tray in the freezer! (A second container/bin in the kitchen for paper/plastic recycling would have been helpful but not essential as you could take them out to the recycle bin in the bin shed) We would certainly stay again. Being out of season we could park both cars outside the door you enter by but suspect in high season you would have to park one car outside the garage/playroom on the lower street. There were a few areas of paintwork that could do with a retouch - particularly in the family bathroom around the window but everywhere was clean.
