A wonderful family weekend away

4 of 5
We had a wonderful family stay here. The house is amazing, we especially loved the conservatory. The games room was well used and lots of fun. We had a fantastic evening in the BBQ hut. The beautiful Beadnell Bay is only minutes away. A perfect base for exploring the Northumberland coast or just to relax and get away from it all.

Monas Cottage

5 of 5
Stayed for a month, from mid Feb to mid Mar 17. Cottage is as described in advertisement , really lovely and very well appointed. Location is in quiet village, but within easy travelling distance of many local attractions, either by car or public transport. Berwick is within walking distance, as is the beach. Jacqui, the owner, is very pleasant and helpful, and is only a phone call away if needed. Would highly recommend the cottage, looking forward to going back sometime.
