Loved the solitude. The cottage was fantastic. Clean, tidy ,comfortable with everything we needed. Bed was so comfy we slept in with no sounds at night to disturb us. Great place for exploring . Some fantastic castles and views. Rachael and her parents were very friendly and helpful.

Former miner's terraced house, near the sea and the town. Clean and comfortable.

4 of 5
There is another row of houses between the house and the sea, so no views but it is still a good place to stay, close to the seafront and the town. The house is clean, comfortable and well equipped. Well situated to explore the Northumbria coastline. Elaine is friendly and helpful.
