“Great Apartment, Great Views”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We absolutely loved the apartment. If you're visiting Northumberland, then this is a great place to stay. It's comfortable and well equipped, furnishings are of a high standard and the views across the bay are beautiful. We didn't really make any use of the Jetty cottage because views are so good from the apartment and would have had to turn on heating given it was March. However, it would be a great hideaway if you wanted a quiet space away from the main apartment. There is no shortage of crockery, kitchen appliances or larder items and cleaning fluids, so very little need to bring much with you. Tracy great to deal with, recommended.

“Idyllic and relaxing break”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The flat is on the first floor of a four floor block of eight apartments overlooking the estuary and is very well equipped and well decorated. We loved using the big jacuzzi bath and the slow cooker. The bedrooms were comfortable and the open plan kitchen / living area is a good size for 6. The jetty cottage is a very short walk down to the water edge and was a lovely place to sit in the evening playing cards and having a glass of wine. The area is quiet so bring supplies. The nearest pubs are a 3.5 mile walk to Bamburgh which we covered in a little over an hour each way and it was stunning. There is a coastal path if the tide is high - otherwise you can stroll the whole way on the beach and the views to Bamburgh Castle were terrfific. A good base to explore this part of the coast and not far for a drive into the National Park to see the Cheviot Hills. Easily located off the A1 with lots of detailed instructions for everything.

So glad you loved our apartment as we do too. Yes you are correct the coastal walk along to Bamburgh is stunning…. easy to see why the property is in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. There are very few properties around Bamburgh with seaviews over to Lindisfarne so we feel very privileged. The quickest way to Bamburgh is following the road which is 2 miles, where there are 8 places to eat, including 3 pubs. Our favourite is the Mizen Head in Bamburgh, which is voted one of best villages in Britain. kindest regards Tracy

“Heavenly New Year”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This apartment is really cosy, comfortable, well-equipped and well-appointed. Suited us all. On arrival spotted a little egret and a lapwing on the rocks. The kids had fun with the football table in the games room, we all loved the jetty cottage which was a little haven and there was wi-fi for the techie son-in-law. New Year picnic on the shore at Lindisfarne, watched the night sky from the dunes at Bamburgh , had a lunch in the Treehouse Restaurant at Alnwick Castle. Such a lovely rental place in such a lovely area.

“Lovely comfortable apartment”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed at No 3 Swan Bay for a long weekend over New Year and couldn't fault the place. The flat was cosy, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The owner had provided some thoughtful touches for us including some chocolate Santas on arrival which the kids loved.
The views are amazing from the flat and we made good use of the jetty cottage and games room. It is perfectly situated just down the coast from Bamburgh and there is lots to do in local area.

“Excellent apartment with fine views of Budle Bay”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were very impressed with the apartment, it lived up to our expectations and more! Very well equipped, comfortable with lovely sea views and close to many Northumbrian attractions.
Associated with this apartment is access to a jetty cottage which we found was lovely to relax in and watch the wildlife on the estuary just outside the windows.
