  • "We had a lovely week at Twitchers Rest, the accommodation was lovely and clean, we had a box of chocolates and wine left by the owner what we thought was a lovely touch."

    The house was very convenient for going out and about. We wouldn't hesitate to go again. We have used Sykes cottages before and not been disappointed. Thank you. Xx Patricia and David

    Clean and tidy accommodation with everything provided. If you dont want crowds or the hustle and bustle of a seaside town I would definitely recommend it.

  • "Lovely terrace, as described."

    Good communication. Blackout or dark curtains in the back bedroom would have been beneficial, as hard to sleep/stay asleep with light coloured blinds only.

  • "Superb , well equipped cottage with amazing sea views."

    There is a wonderful beach just across the road. Whilst there is only on street parking there is never a problem parking . Hartlepool is well supplied with a full range of supermarkets and shops, all within very easy reach. The National Naval museum is well worth a visit. We also made good use of the local railway station , visiting Newcastle and Darlington. There is ample car parking at the station and also nearby, both at very reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend Twitchers Rest !

  • "Hartlepool is not a place we had listed as one of our holiday options but having been so we could be neared our granddaughter at Durham University we were very surprised at how nice the place is with so many attractions to see and visit."

    The cottage clearly had a lot of recent updating and decorating and being right next to the sea and the amazing beaches was a big plus. The only caveat is that the staircase is steep with narrow steps so be warned

  • "Loved it, loved it, loved it."

    Very helpful owner, very thoughtfully laid out holiday cottage with high quality fixtures and fittings. A calm and comfortable retreat from the world with the luxury of direct access to miles of sand, the drama of the seas, stunning sunset and even, for us , a resting seal. Can't wait to come back. Thank you so much.

  • "The cottage is cozy and has everything you need."

    Right on the front there are fantastic views of the sea and a lovely sandy beach. Only downside is the area which is a bit run down but that's my fault for not doing my homework. We had a lovely time visiting the places nearby. Such as Saltburn and Seaham plus day out in Durham.

  • "The cottage is clean and well appointed."

    It includes a dishwasher, microwave, cooker and good broadband. The house has a clean fresh appearance. It is situated across the street from the North Sea, which can be viewed from both front-facing windows. On-street parking is free and most times available in front of the property. Convenience Shops are nearby on Hartlepool Headland, and there is a well-known Fish and Chips takeaway near St Hildas Church. Larger shops and Restaurants are available in the Hartlepool Marina area. For birdwatchers, it is ideal.

    Very well placed for walks along the seafront up to Heugh Battery and exploring the surrounding area. The welcoming gift of wine and chocolates were much appreciated. The kitchen was very well equipped and after a day out walking it was nice to return and light the log burner in the evening.

About the location


Durham 18.1 miles; Saltburn-by-the-Sea 30 miles; Whitby 50.1 miles.

The coastal town of Hartlepool lies north of the Tees estuary, with the North York Moors to the south and the majestic cathedral town of Durham, a short drive to the North West. There has been huge investment in regeneration projects and Hartlepool now offers an award-winning marina, with associated trendy restaurants and bars overlooking stunning yachts and sea going cruisers. In the heart of the town there is a multiplex cinema, a health and fitness centre with swimming pool and Middleton Grange shopping centre, which is the third largest in the region, with a traditional market hall. Other attractions include the HMS Tricomalee - Nelson's last fighting frigate and the Heugh Battery Museum. Seaton Carew beach and its associated demanding golf course lies two miles down the coast and a short drive brings you to Saltholme RSPB Reserve, where seals and wading birds are regularly spotted. The more adventurous will be attracted to the impressive Teesside White Water Centre, whilst others may prefer a quiet walk along the Tees riverside walk. Beamish open air museum is within easy reach, near Durham city and well worth a day trip. Hartlepool provides a good base for those wishing to sample a novel corner of Britain, combining the beauty of the coastal waters with the rich industrial heritage of former times.
