Welcoming relaxing and doggie friendly

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sue for a lovely clean cottage. It was very comfortable and quiet. A fantastic location 2 mins walk from the glorious sandy beach. The weather was very kind to us and we had a number of beautiful walks up an down the coast. Our favourite being Craster via Dunstanborough castle to the Ship inn at low Newton. We also made our annual trip to over to holy island a very peaceful and relaxing day. The Northumberland coast is a very special place for us. We will definitely return.

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We booked a three night short stay at the last minute. Whilst the cottage doesn't look much from outside, it's nicely done out inside and was lovely and clean and comfortable. The first time we went across the road to the beach (2 minute walk) we couldn't believe our eyes - absolutely fantastic beach with hardly anyone on it, and wonderful views. The cottage was very peaceful and we felt that our dog was very welcome there. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and thoroughly enjoyed our walks along the coastal path and beach. We would definitely stay at Annstead Farm again.
