It was a home from home. Being able to look out at the sea every day was a therapy in itself as we used to live by the sea and now no longer do. The house also gave us access to the beautiful Northumberland coast and the many places to look for birds that it provides.

We had a great time and the cottage was perfect. It’s a very high standard and felt homely. The owners have included some lovely touches. One minor comment is that the stools in the dining area are too high for the table area, it’s the only issue we wanted to feed back, but we did feel like we were teetering above our meal. It didn’t detract from a lovely stay though! Thoroughly recommended and am hoping to return next year.
