Just got back from a lovely stay at Sandy Knowes cottage. The cottage has everything we needed. It's just across from the beach which our dog loved. We couldn't of picked a better week to stay here. The weather has been fabulous. It is a great location for travelling around Northumberland. On the Sunday we went into Amble and visited the market on the harbour and the little craft shops. We visited Warkworth and fed the ducks. We had a lovely walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle. We drove through Eshott were we saw a red squirrel and a buzzard. If you go on the beach at low tide and walk to the right you might see some Herons. We was lucky enough to see 3 in the rocks, as well as some small birds. We stopped on the harbour one day to have pizza and sat outside watching the birds. At one point there was 8 Cormorant on the beach opposite the old boathouse restaurant. We also visitied Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre and had a lovely walk around the lake finding wildlife. You can't take your dog there though. There is a large field at the turning into the road every morning and late afternoon we saw 2 Herons in the field. On the whole we had a briiliant 5 days here. If you are wanting somewhere to stay in this area i don't think you will find anywhere better.

By the sea location.
A good base to explore all Northumberland. A lovely quiet get away from it all cottage. All you need for a home from home. So, so close to the beach, lovely views over to Coquet Island. We walked along the beach from dawn until night. For a keen wildlife observer, the birds were varied and interesting. Visit the nearby nature reserve and don?t forget the cafe! Cinty the owner, although on holiday herself, was available to answer any questions and was very helpful. We would love to visit again.

It's been said before... A Hidden Gem! We can't recommend this lovely cottage in the most beautiful setting enough! Stepping out of the front door to walk a few yards to the gorgeous white sandy beach was a delight each day. It was our puppy's first experience of the seaside and he couldn't get enough of it!! Nor could we! The locals were so friendly and accommodating and because it was virtually residents only using the narrow lane, it was blissfully quiet. The cottage was cosy but spacious, with the downstairs living room having easy to clean wooden flooring (essential with dogs!) and the bedrooms and modern bathroom were lovely. We would have loved to experience the warmth of the wood burner in the fireplace but it was a little too hot when we visited! The owner, Cinty, could have not been more helpful and we loved the welcome bottle of wine!! Not sure we want to tell too many people about Sandy Knowes, but then that would be selfish!

Perfect cottage
We have just returned from a perfect week in Northumberland in this lovely cottage. The location is amazing just across the road from a lovely beach where you can walk for miles. The facilities in the cottage could not have been better there is everything you could possibly need provided in the cottage and the owner is extremely helpful. Beds are very comfortable and the whole cottage is very clean , certainly the place to stay for a truly relaxing break , we will be returning.

Fabulous cottage
We stayed in this fabulous cottage in November and had a brilliant week. It?s a stone?s throw from a great beach where you can walk for miles. The cottage is cosy and extremely well equipped and is a perfect base to explore the gorgeous coastline. Would definitely recommend and we?ll definitely be going again next year.
