Beautiful grade II listed cottage, sympatheticly modernised. Lovely cottage style garden, very private and well stocked with garden furniture. Owners very kind and helpful. Explained the cottage well, offered any assistance we might need and left the cottage well stocked. Although owners live in next door cottage they were not intrusive but we knewRead more we could get them if required. Lots to see and do, both country and seaside on doorstep. Plenty of good eating restaurants and pubs (Beehive was great, good beer garden and dogs allowed which suited us). We would certainly return should we be in area. Hide

We have loved staying in this cosy cottage again. Its a great base for visiting family and relaxing too. And we even had two days of gorgeous sunshine, so we got to see Tynemouth and Whitley Bay beaches at their best. Thank you, and hope to be back soon.
