“Welcoming”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My children and I had the most amazing week staying at Sandy Knowes, we fell in love with the cottage straight away as it was so homely, the beach was lovely, the lady who owns the cottage couldn't have been more accommodating with her call to provide the security number, she answered all my questions,suggesting places to go...I'd never been to Northumberland before...it was the perfect home from home...definitely recommended.

We are so pleased you and your children enjoyed your time at Sandy Knowes and that it was love at first sight for you! It is great to hear you had everything you needed to feel at home and found a bit of a tour guide in the owner to boot! We will be sure to pass your comments along to the owner and hope your return for another break soon.

“Lovely retreat a little hidden gem”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a little gem of a cottage this is. The beach is just across the road and the only people you share it with are those that live in the small village of Low Hauxley as cottage is situated at the end of the road. As for the cottage it is fully equipped with everything you need, a real home from home and the owner left us a welcome pack that included a bottle of wine, very welcome. The surrounding area has lots to see and do all,within close proximity and I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.

“Cosy and close to the beach”
Reviewed 5 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

In February we had a lovely week in this cosy comfortable cottage. Everything that we needed was provided and we appreciated the complimentary wine and biscuits. It was nice to have reliable internet and Sky television for the cold winter nights when we didn't want to go out. The shower worked perfectly and we had no need to use the log burner as we were warm enough with the central heating. The beach is directly across the road and we had some nice daily walks. Unfortunately for us the cottage is booked until October and so we will not be able to return this year as hoped. The hostess is friendly and very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

“Winter Break to get away”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

Stayed here 9th Jan 2016 for a week. Have been to Northumberland for many years now and this location was just perfect to go out the front door for walks on the beach. Can easily travel South, North or inland to the west from here to find Northumberland’s hidden gems. Once we had the fire lit the cottage was very cosy, and was a very peaceful relaxing location. The owner was very helpful with information and would definitely recommend. We note that the cottage is now fully booked until October so are disappointed we cannot book a revisit in September this year.

Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us, we are so pleased that you had a lovely holiday at Sandy Knowes. The location, so close to the beach sounds pretty perfect to us too, especially when travel further afield is so convenient too! Please do keep checking availability for your holiday in September because things can always change, we'd love you to have the opportunity to come back!

An excellent location for a cottage with many locations to visit and a sandy beach right on the doorstep. The sea could be watched from upstairs with seals and many bird species seen passing by. Great sunrises.
