  • "We thought Salee Cottage was lovely."

    Very clean and comfortable.Perfectly situated in the town, and on a nice quiet street. The only drawback we found was the shower-head, which needs replaced.

    Dear Guest Thank you very much for your kind comments. We hope that you enjoyed your holiday at Salee Cottage. We would also like to thank you for informing us about the shower head; we will replace it as suggested. Best wishes Stephen and Por Property Owner

  • "Lovely holiday home."

    Nicely decorated, well equipped with everything required. Near to beach and shops, which was great. Nearby facilities good, pubs nearby and Maritime Centre with cafe on beach very nice. Newbiggin on sea a quietish little town with great character and some lovely craft shops. Within reasonable driving distance for a day out is National Trust and Alnwick Castle, Farne Islands boat trip (fantastic) and other fabulous beaches. Would definitely recommend.

  • "A lovely place to stay, the cottage was beautifully decorated and very comfortable."

    We had some difficulty accessing the key but this was sorted out by a quick call to the owner. There were some issues with the heating and the instructions were unhelpful but we coped. We would definitely recommend Salee Cottage as a base for visiting Northumberland. The Inkspot Craft ale bar was excellent and the Artisan tea room is a must visit.

    Dear Guests Thank you very much for your kind comments and feedback. We are pleased to hear that you had a lovely time visiting Northhumberland and our cottage felt comfortable to you. We will try our best to sort out the issues with the heating and instructions to ensure that the next guests can enjoy their stay at our cottage. Kind regards Stephen and Por Property Owner

    It is in a really good position close to all amenities. 5min walk to the promenade and a good pub at the end of the street.

    Newbiggin-by-the-sea is a lovely town. We enjoyed the beach and the bakery in the town. We enjoyed the private outdoor space at the back of the cottage. There is a good (mostly) off-road cycle route nearby and some lovely walks. The swimming pool at nearby Ashington is an excellent facility.

  • "Very homely, comfortable and very clean."

    Very well equipped with everything needed-free WiFi great reception Parking outside front door great for people like ourselves who find it difficult to carry things these days! Neighbours very nice. Area very good but know Northumberland well - lots to see and do. Recommend the fish at the shop/cafe at Life Boat Museum in village also the Rotary Parkway at Wansbeck Business Pk, very pleasant staff and great steak, reasonably priced. Guests not putting bin out - black bin full, we emptied green bin - they are each put out alternative weeks Monday evening - should have Council bin calendar pinned up as days could change bank hols.

  • "Short walk to the town and beach which was good."

    Easy access to lots of areas to visit. The only downside for us was the sharp corners at the end of the bed, the bed frame being too big for the room, inches from the wall which meant you had to walk sideways to get past the bottom of the bed.

    We're in the middle of moving, I can't tell you the relief I felt on opening the door to find such a lovely cared for environment. The double room had the comfiest bed with good quality duvet and linens. I slept soundly every single night , so well in fact that I'm going to seek a similar mattress for my new home.

  • "I was not happy with the main bedroom."

    The bed was too long for the space with a wooden end .This meant that I had to slide carefully along the wall to avoid banging my knees to get to the other side of the room window, dresser, wardrobe etc. There was only one bedside table and lamp on the far side of the bed. We used the laundry box as a table for glasses, book etc. The kitchen was very good but unfortunately the cooker switch also switches off both fridges as I discovered after 24 hours! This is surely not safe?

    Had everything we needed. Near to the beach and shops. Had a bit of trouble finding the cottage as one side of the road was Queen street and the other was New Queen Street, but once we knew how to negotiate the one way system was fine. Very quiet area. Only draw back is having to park in the street and hoping there is a space.
