Sandy Knowles is a gem on the Northumbria coast. The cottage sits about 50 yards from the beach which is sandy and easily accessible. The cottage itself was well equipped and very comfortable. Sandy Knowles will not disappoint and we would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to our friends and family.

An ideal location for a relaxing holiday, especially for the dog. There was plenty of room and the beach was literally a stones throw away. We would definitely stay here again.

I spoke to the owner a couple of days before our holiday and found her really helpful and friendly this set the precedent for a wonderful holiday. Sandy Knowes did not disappoint; lovely well equipped cottage in a beautiful location: what more can you ask for from a holiday? I wouldn't hesitate to revisit and would encourage anyone to do so.

We loved Sandy Knowes and its location, right near the beach which meant we could go walking without getting in the car first.

The cottage was in a wonderful location with easy access to the beach, which was fabulous - long stretches of golden sand. The owner was very helpful with suggestions of things to do where to eat. Would highly recommend will be booking again.

This cottage was excellent; cosy, very comfortable and hard to leave. The location being literally on the beach was perfect and the cycle path was a big plus. Our whole family enjoyed the break and we even spotted some seals on the beach one day.

The location was fantastic, amazing beach on your doorstep. The cottage was very well equipped, I always take kitchen items that every other cottage we've stayed at didn't have, I didn't need them in this cottage as it had everything you could need and all kitchen equipment was very good quality. The sofas and bed were very comfortable another first in a rented cottage for us. Overall we had a very comfortable relaxing holiday.

Fantastic location on the beach. Great character cottage; snug, warm and clean with wi-fi , Sky TV and dog friendly. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for great accommodation as close as you can get to miles and miles of the most perfect beaches. Amble is nearby which was perfect for eating out if cooking isn't your thing. In short, we loved it!!

Great location. We loved having the beach right on our doorstep and plenty of amenities nearby in Amble. We really enjoyed walking along the coastal path to Druridge Visitor Centre and Amble. The cottage was also conveniently located for visits to Alnwick, Seahouses, Farne Islands, Craster and Alnmouth. We'll certainly be back! Lastly, the bottle of wine and biscuits were a lovely welcome on our arrival.

The cottage is in a great position, in a hidden gem of a location, on the breath-taking Druridge Bay, with comfort within and the beach just outside.

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!

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.

What a little gem of a cottage this is. The beach is just across the road and the only people you share it with are those that live in the small village of Low Hauxley as cottage is situated at the end of the road. As for the cottage it is fully equipped with everything you need, a real home from home and the owner left us a welcome pack that included a bottle of wine, very welcome. The surrounding area has lots to see and do all,within close proximity and I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.

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.

In February we had a lovely week in this cosy comfortable cottage. Everything that we needed was provided and we appreciated the complimentary wine and biscuits. It was nice to have reliable internet and Sky television for the cold winter nights when we didn't want to go out. The shower worked perfectly and we had no need to use the log burner as we were warm enough with the central heating. The beach is directly across the road and we had some nice daily walks. Unfortunately for us the cottage is booked until October and so we will not be able to return this year as hoped. The hostess is friendly and very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

An excellent location for a cottage with many locations to visit and a sandy beach right on the doorstep. The sea could be watched from upstairs with seals and many bird species seen passing by. Great sunrises.

Stayed here with my partner and our six year daughter. Beautiful cottage with stunning views and the beach for your garden. The owners are very thoughtful with a very nice surprise of a welcome pack of milk,tea,coffee,biscuits and wine. Lots to do in the surrounding areas and some nice restaurants in Amble about a mile and a half away. Would definitely recommend Sandy Knowles to anybody.

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.
