Stunning property, clean and homely

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property as a surprise break for my husband's 50th Birthday. The communication with the owner was excellent throughout the booking process and she was extremely helpful, suggesting places to eat and to visit as we were new to the area. Nothing was too much trouble.

The property itself was beautiful, well maintained, spotlessly clean and huge. Our stay was extremely comfortable and everything we could have asked for was provided. The garden was a lovely, peaceful haven and we really felt like we had 'got away from it all' for three days, which was exactly what we wished for.

Highly recommended stay, we will be booking again in the near future.

We booked the Lodge for a family Xmas away from all the Hussel and bussel and it did not disappoint. Lovely kitchen area which was great to sit around the large table just chatting without the distraction of the TV. 10 minute walk to the Beach which was great for the dog. Would highly recommend this well appointed Lodge for those wishing to chill out in this beautiful part of the country will definitely be back in the summer.

What can I say! The lodge is fabulous. Clean, tidy, white crisp bed linen and exceptional comfort. My friend and I are on our last night of four. We really don't want to leave. My little dog Darcy has also had a fantastic time running along the beach. Although the weather has been awful we have walked and we had a visit to the market and watched the Remembrance Day Parade in Amble. I would recommend the Lodge to anyone and everyone. Fantastic stay.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

The digs were as all the other reviews stated, a real home from home. Our 2 year old twins were spoiled for choice with the amount of games and equipment on offer. The local beach is absolutely gorgeous and the closest town Amble was great, three nice restaurants. Whilst the house is in the middle of a housing estate, the location was fab for accessing Walkworth, Alnwick, Alnmouth, etc. You definitely need a car to get around. Would absolutely recommend as the house was so well equipped and was spotlessly clean. A brilliant holiday was had by all three generations!

family with dog Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay at the lodge. It was all we hoped for and more.

It is on the edge of a housing estate which is odd but not a problem.

It is just like a home from home.

Could not get the tv to work all week but that was a bonus to me.

It dose look as if the price has gone up a lot for the same time next year though.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed our "home from home". We have just replaced the TV with one that is easier to switch on, or off, if you prefer! The prices on this website are not accurate, but are an average price per week in high season and return guests get a 10% discount. Hope to welcome you back sometime, Sharon.

This is not a holiday rental, this is a home that Sharon and her husband chose to let people share for a while.

From the delighted shrieks from our children as they discovers one delight after an another.

The countless thoughtful touches that are bursting from every wonderful nook and crannie.

We all relaxed instantly, something we do not always do.

The kitchen is a delight, we rarely left it

All the local information was excellent, from places to visit and restaurant reviews.

The property was in the perfect location for all that Northumberland has to offer

It was spotless and well equipped.

What made made this holiday above others was the wonderful communication from Sharon, especially as I was convinced we were coming the week before!!!

Do not hesitate, book this property, we will be back for sure.

Many thanks Bryony, Bryn, Rhys and Tegan Evans

We have a high chair, step, Mamas and Papas travel cot, stair gates at top and bottom of stairs;large selection of plastic plates, cups, bowls and cutlery. More to your children's delight we have lots of toys, games, books, dressing up clothes, garden games and even their own wooden pirate themed playhouse in the garden. Beds made on arrival including good quality bedlinen, plenty of pillows and duvets and all towels included in price as are all light and heating costs and unlimited WiFi use. Dogs This is perfect dog-walking country. The beach alone stretches for enough miles to wear out the most energetic pooch and has great views of Coquet Island and the lighthouse for the humans. We are happy to accept well-behaved dogs but do confine them to the kitchen/utility area of the house.
