The cottage was lovely, the garden was enclosed, but not secure enough for the dog or for children.
The cottage is right next to the beach and on a windy day it certainly sits in the path of the wind up the road. However, that said, we had a lovely stay, we enjoyed the cottage - it was peaceful, and relaxng for us. Northumbria is a wonderful part of the country and somewhere we would go again, but probably not this cottage.
Beware one of the kitchen chairs - someone has thoughtfully sawn off some of one of the legs - leaving it very unstable! The owner may have changed it since we were there though.
The cottage was clean and warm with the fire - just what was needed on a cold autumn day.
