About Susie Helsby

I'm a mum of two children who runs the cottage as a family home, it's warm and friendly and I'll try to accommodate people's requirements as best as I can. Being a mum I know what it's like to go on holiday with children so I've tried to include as many of the basic children's equipment as I can - cot, high chair, stair gates, bed guards etc etc. I can even provide a buggy if required!! Just ask and I'll see what I can do!

Susie Helsby purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Susie Helsby chose Northumberland Coast

I'm passionate about the North East and think everyone should come and visit such a magnificent part of the country. I bought the house to provide a nice, clean and affordable place for people to stay and explore this beautiful area, I just hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mj Gilbert - June 2013.

"The property was very clean, tidy and well-equipped and we enjoyed the layout, with the large downstairs area and nice sized bedrooms. Items like handwash, shampoo, laundry tablets and dishwasher tablets were already there which is always a nice surprise. The children really enjoyed having the playing field just outside the front door; we also enjoyed this feature! The property really was just a 5 minute walk from either a rocky beach with fossils and rock pools (and many hermit crabs) or a very large, lovely sandy beach, ideal for sandcastle building. It was very useful to have fishing nets, spades and buckets there as it meant we didn't need to bring them: they were used quite a lot. The cottage was also pretty close to many places when we went out for the day."





B Martin - May 2013.

"Very impressed with the property. Great to find a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival. The wifi was great and worked perfectly."

Lovely cottage, great setting

  • 5 of 5

Really well-done cottage, minutes from one of the beaches & only a short walk from the local shop & two pubs. Would stay again, without hesitation.

Fantastic return visit to a lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here and can't wait to come back! Great house with lots of little touches to make you feel welcome! Very well presented and perfect for a week away, walking and taking in the beautiful beaches. Susie was so helpful and friendly and would thoroughly recommend!

Lovely stay in every way

  • 5 of 5

Cowry Cottage is a lovely modern house which is really well furnished and fitted out as a holiday home. Everything was spotlessly clean. There are lots of thoughtful touches by the owner including toys and games for children (and adults). You can relax and be comfortable whatever the weather. It's a quiet location in a new housing estate but only 5 minutes from Beadnell beach and a 15 minute walk around the sea front to the excellent Craster Arms which serves good beer and fine food. Great café in the village too. Do use the Stagecoach "X" bus services that link to the other coastal villages. Great view from the top of the double decker buses!

Happy Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and had a great week at Cowry Cottage which is bright, modern, spacious and clean. Susie has really thought of everything you would need to make it a home from home and our children really appreciated the buckets and spades provided. The weather was typically British and we only

made it to the fab Beadnell Beach once but we visited Cragside, Dunstanburgh, Lindisfarne, Bamburgh and Seahouses. This is a wonderful part of the country with so much to do and see. Highly recommended.

Very enjoyable long weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We found Cowry Cottage a great place to stay for a long weekend. The cottage had everything we could need - it was clean, spacious, well located and excellent value for money. The village itself is quiet but a stones throw from lots of places and things to do. It has a beautiful beach a great shop that supplies almost everything you could need, a fantastic chip shop and a couple of places to eat in an evening. We couldn't really ask anymore.

This part of the Northumberland coastline is very unspoilt with beautiful beaches, the people are friendly and we will definitely return in the future.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Cowry Cottage has everything you'd want in your ideal holiday accommodation. Great location minutes from the beach, fully equipped kitchen, comfy sofas, light and airy rooms and heating that you can set as you wish. We had a great week here and would recommend this as a ideal holiday location what ever time of the year you're thinking of coming.
