“Home from home”
Reviewed 5 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 27 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.

“A perfect beach retreat for the whole family”

We stayed in Cowry Cottage between 27th Sep - 4 Oct '14 having been recommended highly by a friend. This scenario is always worrying, because if you dont enjoy the property, surroundings etc then your likely to resent the duff tip-off your were given.

I needn't have worried, right from the off I found the owner Susie to possess exceptional customer service skills and her communication throughout the booking and holiday was exemplary.

As busy working parents with 2 children (2yrs and 6mnths), we both decided that a trip abroad may be a stretch to far but wanted a break away from the house that we are all too familiar with now! The local area is beautiful, with a selection of 2 parks on you doorstep along with excellent fish and chips in Seahouses and fantastic beaches in Bamburgh (and all along the north east coast for that matter).

Plenty of activities (Train rides, pottery/arts, walks) to occupy little girls everyday within 40 mins drive or so, and even though it was on our doorstep, we still didn't have time to visit the beach in Beadnall.

The WiFi was excellent and was used to stream NetFlix and football matches through our iPad. Other facilities were also fantastic, with BBQ, comfy Sofas and all manner of games, books and DVDs already provided for guests!

The best compliment I can give to this house was like it was staying in a home away from home. Immaculate presentation and great layout mean't we have already booked up a return visit in 2015.
