Great cottage with stunning sea views. Great access to a fabulous coast with stunning beaches. Whilst Cresswell is a quiet sleepy village you have great access to a great coast. In easy walking distance is the excellent Drift Cafe with great coffees, snacks and cakes. Had a great week and when back in Northumberland again we will certainly be checking the availability of Anchor Cottage. The owners also keep in touch to make sure all good, so great customer service thank you.
Excellent location. Helpful owners. Property furnished to a very high standard, spacious and with great views. We were there in the snow and once we mastered the central heating (slightly frustrating that it resets automatically at several points in the day) it was very cosy - enhanced by the log burners.
Northumberland is a beautiful area for rest and relaxation, with stunning beaches and beautiful countryside. Anchor Cottage is well placed to take advantage of this, sitting right next to the start of the Northumbrian Coastal Path. The cottage has been perfectly restored (as documented by the picture library in the guest book!). The quality of finish is excellent and all the rooms furnished to a high standard. It was great to open the blinds and see the sea from the bedroom each morning. We thoroughly enjoyed the wood burning stove, being November, although the weather was unseasonably sunny which allowed us to walk every day! All the facilities functioned very well which made for a easy and very comfortable stay. The very popular Drift Café was a 5 minute walk up the road, though a car was required to reach any other 'watering holes'. A lovely place to stay for some rest and recuperation.
We had a lovely long weekend at Anchor Cottage. We stocked up in Morpeth on the way through as there is not a great deal of shopping nearby and headed off. The cottage is great for just mooching down on the beach, which is just under the kitchen window, or if you want to travel to some of the the local attractions then most can be reached in less than an hour. We went to Bamburgh, Seahouses and Alnwick but there are lots of other things to do not far away. We enjoyed just relaxing in the big kitchen with a coffee and sitting out the back in the evening watching the sea and chatting to some of the neighbours. The house itself is perfect with a lovely cottage feel but very modern equipment, you can relax in a nice warm bath at the end of a chilly day or sit out in the sunshine. The wood-burning stoves are lovely to relax with a book when the weather isn't great, too. Would absolutely recommend and would stay again if in that neck of the woods again.
This cottage is everything you hope it will be. It was a spontaneus booking for us and we wasnt dissappointed. Everything is thought of. The beach is wonderful and clean The bench on the bank top is great for morning coffee Afternoon aperitifs and evening hot chocolates.
