About the Owner

My name is Emma, I am the owner of The Arches and the running of this wonderful holiday cottage is something I have always wanted to do and thoroughly enjoy. I will ensure that your stay with us is memorable and nothing will be too much trouble. I myself like to stay in beautiful accommodation so think I have good idea what people like. I also have two children in primary school so know the issues involved in holidaying with "little ones".

Great Cottage, Great People, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cottage. Modern finish, but still homely. Good facilities. Our 17 month son had a great time playing in the fully enclosed garden and playing with the slide and Wendy House provided. He also had fun playing with the toys that were in the cupboard.

The owners were very welcoming and even though their buildings run around the same courtyard as the cottage the courtyard is big and the configuration of the buildings mean that you don’t feel encroached upon.

Location also excellent – 10/15 minutes to the beaches of the beautiful north Northumberland coast, a similar distance inland to the Cheviot Hills. 35 mins south to Alnwick Castle and Gardens.

We would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Lovely welcome and cottage in super location.

Fresh homemade scones on arrival made it extra special.

Everything was clean, new and well maintained.

Location was ideal for hills, countryside, coast and many local attractions.

Great!
