Excellent location, an extremely comfortable cottage with warm and friendly owners. Nothing is too much trouble and the communications we experienced prior to taking up the rental were first class.
We have stayed there three years now and will be travelling back there next year.
The cottage is welcoming, clean and beautifully decorated.
Wonderful location with easy access to the beach (100m away).
Shops and restaurants on the doorstep.
Lovely welcome pack and message, and very friendly and helpful owner.
i feel very fortunate to have found the listing for The Mules. the location was excellent, easy to get around to see the sights in and around Northumberland such as Durham, Alnick Castle, The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, etc.
the cottage itself was wonderful. a two-story townhouse with private, off-street parking and entrances front and rear. Steph provided a thoughtful welcome basket and it was nicely appointed with a fitting nautical theme. clean and inviting and all we could ask for. good pizza across the street and two very bakeries down the street. just steps away from a wide, curving seaside promenade where you can see the Couples sculpture out in the water. Newbiggin-by-the-Sea is a nice little town. not touristy, but a fine tourist base, and Steph was a great hostess. recommend.
We had a great stay at the Mules with our three children. The house is very beautiful, comfortable and very clean and tidy. The kitchen is well equipped and we were surprised to find so many books, toys and movies. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, she left us some nice things too. The beach is very close to the house and we have made nice walks along the beach and we have taken beautiful pictures. It is very photogenic with those rocks in the water. In short, we enjoyed it very much.
Kids could go to the beach within couple of hundred yards without crossing a road,
We used the Italian restaurant across the road which was very child friendly and good food.
