It was exactly as advertised. Modernised to a high spec. Very comfortable.

5 of 5
Excellent location. Used it as a base to explore the north east coast. Parking not a problem. Perfect for the 2 of us as we were only staying 2 nights. Any longer and perhaps more wardrobe space could be offered in the second bedroom? Great contact with the owner, very friendly and nothing was a problem. Would certainly recommend this apartment.

Wonderful cottage and lovely garden

5 of 5
. Overall we were delighted with the cottage and its position was very convenient for touring the area. We also appreciated having very reliable wifi and the weather was superb.We did have one concern, which was the safety issue in the shower room. The tiles were very slippery when wet and also it would be helpful to have some hooks and rails for towels
