We stayed in this fabulous cottage in November and had a brilliant week. It’s a stone’s throw from a great beach where you can walk for miles. The cottage is cosy and extremely well equipped and is a perfect base to explore the gorgeous coastline. Would definitely recommend and we’ll definitely be going again next year.
This is a lovely cottage really close to a great beach. It is so close that if you set off from the front door of the cottage at the time you started reading this review, you would be at the beach by now.
The communication by the owner was spot on before we turned up, with her letting me know of some of the places to visit in Amble.
I rate the beaches in Northumberland as some of the best in the UK, especially if you have a dog as you can find miles of mostly untouched beaches great for exercising dogs and even humans. The cottage is really nice with nice touches such as WiFi, a log burner and a digital radio. Yes there is no outside garden to sit in in the evening, but then again if you have a beach literally a stones throw away then that is not a problem.
Amble is a pleasant 30 minute walk away along the dunes and beach, and it has all you need including a lot of really top notch places to eat such as The Fat Mermaid and Jaspers. Plus there's places like Alnmouth, Anwick and Warksworth near by which are all wroth a visit.
The cottage is also on the Northumberland coastal path so you can follow this either way out of the front door to get to more stunning beaches and scenery.
All in all a great cottage in a lovely part of the world.
Just what we both needed. Cottage very cosy warm and had everything we needed. Location was great almost on the beach. Our dog loved it just as much as we did. Spectacular views friendly locals and loads of fresh air and piece and quiet. We would definitely gore visit again .
This is a lovely cottage with all the amenities of home, it is well equipped with comfy beds and a great log burning fire. The location is superb just across a minor road from the most beautiful sandy beach, perfect to watch the sunrise in the morning!
Durridge Bay is stunning a lovely coastline to enjoy from the doorstep of the cottage.
The owner is lovely easy to communicate with helpful and provides a nice ,welcome pack'. I would recommend this cottage and intend to return.
We spent Dec 30th-Jan 7th at Sandy Knowes. What a fab week! New year & a birthday celebrated in the cosy cottage. Truly a home from home but with glorious surroundings!
Beautiful sunrises, great having the beach to ourselves first thing in the morning. Missing the place now. Hope to visit again later this year.
Great communication from the homeowner & a wonderful welcome hamper was there on arrival. Loved it all!
