Welcoming break away

5 of 5
We enjoyed a three night break away in this lovely cottage. Dog friendly, with plenty of walks on the beach and into Warkworth. Good choice of dog friendly pubs in Warkworth and Alnmouth for meals out if wanted. Andrea has provided everything you would need to self cater and the wecome pack was very much appreciated. Thank you, we will be back.

Great apartment. Good base for visiting the area.

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in the well equipped ,roomy apartment. It was perfect for a long weekend with easy access into town and a good base for visiting the coast and beyond. We had an excellent day at Cragside and another visiting Holy Island and Berwick. There was so much to see we will definitely return. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and the owners had thought of all the little things that we had probably forgotten to take. Many thanks for a super weekend
