Pretty holiday cottage in a perfect location.

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming cottage. It was clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped with everything, plus more, that we could want. Bayside cottage is a few minutes walk from the most beautiful beach and only a couple of miles from Bamburgh. We would definitely recommend this property, and hope to return again soon.

Lovely house with a fantastic sea view.

5 of 5
We had a fantasy couple of weeks in this lovely house. It is set within a quiet village within walking distance of a pub, a couple of cafe’s and a shop. Large sandy beach only a 5 minute walk. The owners were very helpful and were at the end of the phone if we had any queries. Would highly recommend.
