Beautiful cottage, stunning beach location

4 of 5
Our group of 7 adults plus 2 dogs stayed for 5 nights in April. The cottage is beautifully refurbished, lovely decor. The view is directly onto the beach over a neatly designed front garden. The location is quiet and unspoilt, with a pub/restaurant around 15 metres away, which specialises in seafood, very tasty. We had some great beach walks with the dogs to Crastor (good pub), between Bamburgh & Seahouses, on Embleton Sands ( a very pleasant surprise to find the quirky Ship Inn at Low Newton-by-the-Sea) and at Alnmouth, which is a pretty foodie harbour spot. When it rained we headed for the fascinating Barter Books in Alnwick. The cottage is quite well equipped for self-catering and Sunil is a very responsive host. The log-burning stove is very toasty for the evenings. There are restrictions on the number of electrical appliances/showers that can be in use at any one time to avoid overload, so care must be taken to monitor this, but full instructions are given. Wifi signal is good. It was a very enjoyable holiday.
