We had a very enjoyable stay and the apartment is in an ideal location to explore the beautiful coastline and surrounding countryside. I would be happy to stay here again.
Mr Belton

Lovely cosy apartment that is well equipped with everything easily at hand. Lovely area to visit with good coastal walks even in February!
Mr Armstrong

Perfect but ......
Quiet, tranquil romantic setting. Apartment adequately equipped if not a little dated and tired in places. Located wonderfully for coastal walks and perfect in every way apart from the most horrendous mattress I have ever had the misfortune to encounter so if you like your sleep avoid this place like the plague.

It was a very good base to tour the area, with very quiet surroundings, walks and wildlife. I felt very safe being the only resident because of the secure front door and then a locking door to the apartment. The central heating was excellent and cosy (had a couple of hail and snow showers a few evenings). Everything was spotless and property had really good size rooms. There was lots of hot water even without the heating. It was lovely to lie in bed and see all the stars and the moon (there was no light pollution), and did not close any curtains with it being on it's own. Would certainly go back again if in the area.
Mrs Bradbury

Peaceful and tranquil. Had wonderful views of the garden from the bay window and the ambience of the house. A warm apartment convenient for touring. Coldingham Bay was stunning.
