Reviews

We wanted to visit the north east coast from Berwick down to Amble. This accommodation was perfect being central to all the coast areas we intended to visit. Perfect for the causeway to Holy Island and good road links to all the main places.

Past Customer,

This first floor apartment was in pristine condition, importantly being situated about half a mile from the A1 it was ideally placed for exploring Northumbria. The bed was very comfortable and furnishing likewise. Perhaps most impressive was the range of kitchen equipment, and it was nice eating breakfast looking out at the nearby sheep. Whilst we didn't use it one even has a small private garden.Very good pubs for eating are situated 4 miles away in Lowick Overall we cannot recommend the apartment highly enough

Past Customer,

We stayed here last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, so we booked again. We were surprised to see that the apartment had been refurbished very tastefully and it looked great! We were very kindly received with a home-made cake, tea, coffee etc. Just like last year, we had a lovely few days. Thank you very much!

Past Customer,

Fantastic from start to finish. A truly beautiful apartment, comfortable, clean and delight to spend time in. Extremely well furnished with absolutely everything you might need thought about. Amazing hosts. Extremely dog friendly. Excellent

Past Customer,

For me this was the best appointed and most comfortable apartment I have stayed in. The situation was perfect for what I wanted to do in the area. Highly recommended.

Past Customer,

Everything about this apartment was excellent. The location, the facilities and the standard of the studio apartment are all extremely high. The wifi could have been more consistent, but this is a minor issue in the context of our stay which was very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
