The owner Sam met us on arrival and to show us around the property. She was extremely friendly and helpful and very kindly left us a delicious cake and bottle of wine which was much appreciated. The property is very clean, comfortable and well equipped with stunning views of the coast. It is in a fantastic location with many interesting places to visit. We can recommend the Billy Shiels' Farne Island boat tour from Seahouses, it was amazing to get so close to see the seals. A wonderful weekend in a great property and we look forward to visiting again as there is still so much to see.

The weather was unkind to us at the beginning of the week but the two log burners made up for that, then the back end of the week was very sunny so was cosy sat in the conservatory, a very comfortable well equipped cottage and would recommend this cottage to anyone.

The owners have refurbished it to a high standard and it is homely, comfortable and very well maintained. Excellent location for the east coast and further afield and a great pub literally over the road. Communication with the owners prior to arrival was excellent, clear and very welcoming. We have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.
