This was our second stay at Sandy Knowes this year and it was every bit as lovely as we remembered. It's location, which is in an area of outstanding beauty, is great with the beach directly across the road. We enjoyed our daily walks and Druridge Bay is close by and is also beautiful. The house is lovely, homely and cosy and the log burner was going when we arrived which made a warm and cheerful welcome. The lady owner is very helpful and we would definitely recommend Sandy Knowes for a relaxing or active holiday and we are very happy to be returning again next year.

“EXCELLENT”

We had a lovely week in Sandy Knowes Cottage. It was a fully equipped cottage , very comfortable beds, lovely views of the sea and a cosy lounge especially with log burner going. We loved just walking across the road to the beach. Our young grandson loved helping us collect driftwood for the log burner and looking in the rock pools when tide was out. We have never known our daughter and son in law's springer spaniel to be so exhausted due to so many walks on the beach.
The welcome pack and toy basket was very much appreciated. The owner was very helpful on places to go with a little toddler. The only negative was there was no outside drying facilities which we would have liked due to having to do washing for a toddler.
All in all we had a fantastic week, although the weather wasn't always on our side, we loved the location of this lovely cottage and would definitely recommend. We made so many wonderful family memories.

We are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your family holiday at Sandy Knowes, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. The beach being just across the road sounds just fabulous for all the family, and putting your feet up in front of the log burner sounds like a great end to a busy day! We will be sure to pass your comments along to the owner and hope you return to make some more memories soon!

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.

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”

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.
