Fantastic Cottage Seconds From Beautiful Beach
We stayed here over Christmas 2016 and loved it. It is literally less than 30 seconds to the beach over the virtually traffic-free road. We were lucky that we had sunshine every day so woke up every morning to fantastic sunrises over the beach and sea. Internally there's everything you could want - a lovey welcome pack, big comfortable furniture and a big solid-fuel fire - great during the cold evenings. With wi-fi and Sky TV, walks on the beach, swimming in the sea (not recommended in December without a wet-suit unless you're acclimatised for cold-water swimming), and plenty of great restaurants (Fat Mermaid, Fish Shack, Sea and Salt to name three) along the road in Amble this is perfect for a week of rest and relaxation. Highly recommended!

Back again
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.

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.

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 was the perfect home from home...definitely recommended.

A cosy cottage in a perfect location for beach or country walks. There was lots of wildlife and it was good for birdwatching, there is a nature reserve close by. The log burner was lovely. It is excellent for bringing your dog. There are plenty of places to explore within a thirty mile radius, and lots of dog friendly areas. Would definitely recommend if you like a quiet spot.
