Reviews

We had a great time in a great cottage and we will return. The place is well equipped and very comfortable Excellent service easy booking well recommended

mr a c,

The house offered so much more than might be expected. We particularly appreciated all the toys available (for both indoors and outdoors), including an X box with a good selection of games. The location is perfect, with it only being a very short walk to the beach. The beach itself is beautiful: clean, clear water, golden sands/sand dunes and rock pools revealed at low tide-what could be better? The quality of the equipment on offer was all excellent. We appreciated the American style fridge freezer with ice dispenser and we also liked the induction hob. All round, an excellent place for a family holiday!

Mr M P,

An excellent property with all the amenities you could wish for

Mrs S C,

I am very pleased to book through Stay Northumbria and would recommend. This property is extremely convenient for the beach and just right for our family holiday.

Mr Martin S,

We had a fantastic stay in this gorgeous house. It is very quietly located with plenty of play space for children and rest space for adults both inside and out. The beach is within spitting distance, and we saw pheasants, curlews, and oyster catchers walk past the kitchen window while eating our breakfast. The house itself if beautifully equipped with everything you need and more. Our children 7,5, and 3 loved it, and especially all the toys which were so kindly left for their enjoyment. Thank you for a marvellous and restful stay.
