We stayed over the Christmas holidays, 5 of us aged from 89 to 21 and 2 dogs. The house is very dog friendly, great enclosed garden. It was very peaceful and easy to get to the beach which was fantastic for walking the dogs.
The house had been decorated for Christmas which was lovely touch. It was perfect for our needs, nice and warm, on a quiet (very!) estate.
The only problem we encountered was the lack of utensils in the kitchen and as it was Christmas and we were going to be cooking a lot, this meant we had to go out and buy things. We had to buy a chopping board and oven gloves, and there was no scales or measuring jug. Hope it doesn't sound petty but it was a long way to the shop at alnwick!
But all in all, I would recommend this house for it's great location, size and comfort.
