“Lovely base to explore a beautiful region”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

It was easy to book and pay for the property, and the owner provided straightforward instructions on key pick up. The house was easy to find and well located in the village for the amazing beach, which is about five minutes walk away. Clear instructions provided about how everything in the house worked and lots of info about local attractions. Wi-if provided that worked well throughout the property, which was useful as mobile signal in Beadnell is very patchy so it was good to be able to make wi-if calls home. The house has all the amenities you'd expect and is well equipped with good quality kitchen utensils and crockery, and lots of soap (dishwasher tablets, hand soap etc.) but it is worth noting that other basics (salt, tin foil, tissues etc.) are not provided so you will need to bring these from home. There is small garden to the rear, which gets the sun in the morning but sadly not for the rest of the day when it is on the front of the house. However, other people on the block seemed to sit out on the front, and I think that if travelling with children this would work well, as there is a large field in front of the property and a small children's playground at the bottom of another field across the street, which can be seen from the front of the house. The estate that the house is on seems to be largely made up of holiday homes, and as I visited out of season it was very peaceful, especially at night. The bed in the master was very comfy and there was plenty of hot water. The house was spotlessly clean upon arrival and felt very homely. It is about a 15 minute walk to the well stocked village shop and amazing local chippy (you must go!); a little longer to the pub, cafe and restaurant in the centre of the village.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 6 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Nice little cottage with plenty of room, equipped with everything a group might need and a less than 10 minute walk from the beach. We were well looked after throughout - a bottle of wine and biscuits were waiting for us on arrival and minor technical issues were dealt with swiftly. Lots of little touches made this a home from home.

“Perfect family seaside cottage!”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My husband and I and our two children (2 year old and 7 month old) enjoyed a lovely weeks stay in this cottage. It is very clean and modern and only a short walk to the gorgeous Beadnell sands. It was very well equipped and ideal for children with a great range of toys books and DVDS available as well as practical items including a travel cot, highchair and pushchair. Susie was incredibly helpful before our stay and we are looking forward to returning soon!!

“Excellent house and location”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just returned from a relaxing long weekend in Cowry Cottage. This house is excellent and has everything we needed for our break. We are looking forward to returning in the summer. The beautiful beach is just a few minutes walk and we enjoyed a bit of rock pooling too.

A very well maintained cottage,clean and spacious. We had a great week and the weather was good. The beach is amazing and you can walk for miles. Lovely pubs in the surrounding area that take dogs.
Thank you we will book again.
