This is a lovely little cottage, situated in a wonderful area.
May 2015
The cottage was much much bigger than looks from outside and had a lovely big outside space. We felt very comfortable and warm. Definitely recommend.
Mr Morton
January 2015
The cottage was very well equipped, all we could ask for. The information was supplied via a booklet and it was excellent for a base, loved it. Thank you.

A superb cottage. Comfortable, well-equipped and in quiet location but handy for the local pub, the coast and the town of Alnwick.
Mr Dickinson

An ideal location for touring around Northumberland. Plenty of good places to eat locally, the local pub The Coach was especially good for Sunday lunch.
Mrs Skinner
August 2014
Puffin cottage was lovely set in the very pretty village of Lesbury. The beaches in the area were fantastic with great pubs in Almouth. A very dog friendly holiday.
Mrs Woodings
May 2014
We liked the friendliness of the local people. Its in close proximity to most key tourist attractions in the area. A private cottage with the local pub just down the road serving excellent food!
Mr Hickman
June 2014
An absolutely lovely cottage, it was everything we could have wished for. Best described as 'small but perfectly formed'! The local pub so close was a bonus and the new landlord made it a second 'home from home'. An added bonus was the close proximity of the bus stop and train station, it meant we could leave the car behind for the day to visit Durham and Alnwick etc.
Miss Walker

The cottage is situated in a pretty village where the locals could not have been more welcoming, which made our stay a very pleasant one and we will be returning soon. There were many good walks from the cottage, including into Alnmouth, which took approx 40 minutes as a gentle stroll, rewarded by an excellent Sunday lunch at The Sun Inn, accompanied by our dog, who was also made to feel welcome wherever we visited. We would highly recommend visiting this cottage.
January 2014
Had a great time very relaxing and cottage excellent
Mr Webster
February 2014
Stunning coastline, cleanest, best equipped cottage we have stayed in! Well worth the effort of going to Hope and Anchor pub in Alnmouth - good food at sensible prices!
Mr Price
December 2013
Northumberland is a fantastic area and Puffin Cottage was in the perfect location to explore the region. Best thing was the pub/restaurant up the road (Coach House). The cottage was really good.
Mr Lockey
November 2013
The cottage was superb in every way. It was located close to a number of beaches and Druridge Bay Country Park, all of which were thoroughly enjoyed by our dog
Mr Barnard
September 2013
The cottage was just perfect for the two of us. Not far to walk to the beach at Alnmouth, a great pub around the corner, and tastefully decorated and maintained.
Mrs Scott
August 2013
The cottage, the location and the local people all combined to make a lovely chill-out break.
Miss Cole
September 2013
Very pleasant, and a property with a high standard. Close to A1, railway station and some pleasant walks nearby along the River Aln. Sainsbury's at Alnwick convenient. A great area to visit, and a great cottage to return to.
Mr Bevan
August 2013
The cottage was ideal for 2 people and because it is on one level, it's ideal for people who have difficulty climbing stairs, as we sometimes do. Lesbury is a beautiful village and a great location for exploring the Northumberland coast from Berwick to Blyth.
Ms Charlton
April 2013
It was a fabulous place, a lot of care thoughtfulness seems to have gone into making it comfortable providing everything needed - well above the general standard. Best self-catering cottage I've ever stayed in.
Mrs Crittall
February 2013
It was especially good to come back on a cold evening and light the woodburner which was very efficient. The cottage was comfy and homely and very well furnished. Loved the dogs picture in the sitting room. Dishwasher an unexpected bonus. We really enjoyed our week, such stunning places even in the cold. Thank you all!

Mr Robinson
December 2012
Puffin Cottage was probably the best cottage of its kind that we have ever stayed in. Cosy, comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The cottaged is in a quiet villiage but is within easy reach of local attractions in this lovely part of the country. Highly recommended.
Mrs Kenny
October 2012
The cottage was immaculate and in a perfect location, close to local amenities but set back far enough from the main road to be quiet. An ideal base for exploring the beautiful Northumberland coast and inland areas.
Mr Sharples

The location is close to the beach, within walking distance and close to local amenities. The cottage was very clean, comfort and cosy.

Mr Wagg

Lovely property in a very good location, not far from all the coastal sights eg. Holy Island. The 'Coach Inn' pub serves good food.
Mrs Cole-Wilkin
July 2011
It was excellent having a lock up garage for our bikes so we could explore a fantastic area. Perfectly located for Northumberland's coastline, and inland such as Alnwick Castle - brilliant!
May 2011
Puffin Cottage was very clean and very quiet, it was the perfect location for visiting Northumberland.

September 2012
Everything was all you could want all your needs were there,the cottage was so clean & cosy. Handy little shop & pub a few yards away.We enjoyed our stay very much.Some nice walks,& friendly local.
December 2012
One of the nicest cottages we've stayed in.Cosy, comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Loved the log burner, especially as the weather was cold and snowy during our stay. The cottage is located in a quiet little villiage and is a few hundred yards from a nice village pub and is within a short distance of the wonderfull Northumberland coast.
March 2013
This was our second visit inside 3 months and it didnt disappoint.Only one minor complaint was that the oven had not been cleaned inside and smelt of burnt fat.We will return.Thank you.

Beautiful cottage.the pictures of the garden do not show the large grounds of the cottage.very nice holiday cottage.
October 2011
We know this area of Northumberland well and specifically wanted to stay in Lesbury as we like The Coach Inn so much! We booked directly with the owners rather than the managing agent, having found a copy of their leaflet during an internet search. The cottage was everything we'd hoped for & more. We believe it has only been let since April this year and had obviously been completely renovated before that. The whole place is decorated to a really good standard. The kitchen is well equipped with quality white goods and equipment. Nice bathroom with a big bath (towels are provided) Fairly spacious living room / diner with a wood burning stove. Kindling and a basket of logs are provided and you can purchase more logs from the garden store using an honesty box to pay. The bedroom is small, but the bed is very comfotable. The wardrobe is more than adequate for two people with loads of hangers and there is further storeage in the hall cupboard. Outside there is plenty of private space including a lawned area. There is a large patio table and chairs and in the garage there is a barbecue, lounger chairs and even a free standing hammock! The property accepts 1 well behaved dog as long as it is not left alone in the cottage. Ours loved the wood burning stove! You should, however, note that whilst the garden is private it is not secure as the garden and driveway are as one. The only other slight negative, and we do mean slight, is the tight turning from the main drive to the parking at the back of the cottage. We have a Mondeo Estate and it did take a bit of manoeuvring to get in and out. Overall, we thought the cottage was excellent and very good value. If we visit the area again we will certainly look to book this cottage
Mr Pollard
October 2015
A spotlessly clean, comfortable cottage in a delightful village setting. We could not fault the place at all, probably the best cottage we have stayed in.
Mrs Broomfield
October 2015
This is a beautifully maintained cottage with everything made available for a peaceful and stress-free holiday. The wood burning stove was wonderful and it was a special treat for us. The house was immaculately cleaned and ready for us to relax and enjoy the lovely local area.
Mr Fearon

The cottage was superb in every way and finished to a very high spec'.
Mr Nunn
July 2016
We had an excellent week all-round. The cottage was immaculate and well equipped. Situated in a very private and peaceful location in a quiet, well-kept village. An ideal location for exploring the beautiful Northumberland Coast and inland attractions.
Ms Richardson

A great location and a lovely cottage which was very well equipped and even better than expected. It was more spacious and cosy than the photos indicate. It was just perfect.
