About Ian Simmons

We are both retired and live in Derbyshire.

Ian Simmons purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Ian Simmons chose Warkworth

Having lived in the North East of England when we were first married we have continued holidaying in the area since we moved away.

With more time available to us we found Lyme Cottage which we think of as an idyllic coastal retreat.

What makes this cottage unique

We really enjoy the unspoilt natural beauty of the Northumberland Heritage coastline.

I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our

stay at your lovely property Lyme Cottage. It has been finished to a

very high standard and I am sure that you will continue to be fully

booked both with new and return customers. We will definately be back

sometime either later on this year or sometime next year and I will have

no hesitation in recommending your property to both friends and

colleagues alike.

February Half term break in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful cottage in a fabulous location. We loved the direct beach access and walked everywhere during our four night stay. The temptations of the sand dunes to run up and down, and the promise of lunch at Bertram's or afternoon tea in Alnmouth, were even enough to get the children (age 9 & 11) excited.

Returning to a warm, cosy and homely cottage with excellent facilities made this a fabulous break for us all away from city life. Our kids described it as "amazing" and gave it 11 out of 10.

They even marketed Lyme Cottage with all the local shop keepers advising "we are staying in a luxury/ deluxe cottage with our own beach access".

We booked late and communication with owner was very efficient, and clear instruction provided. We will certainly look to return.

Thank you Ian & Pauline

A wonderful cottage in a beautiful part of the country.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lyme cottage for 4 nights and didn't want to leave. Prior to our stay, communication with the owner was prompt and they were extremely flexible in accommodating some changes in dates we needed. The property itself is lovely and the owners have certainly thought through all the things that you need to have a comfortable and relaxing stay. The location is also brilliant, not only because of its promiximty to all the wonderful sights in Northumberland but also due to it's direct access to the beach and great costal walks.

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a long weekend at Lyme Cottage and we had an amazing time. The cottage is perfectly located for beach walks having its own private access. The cottage itself is luxurious, spacious, light, and maintained and equipped to an extremely high standard. Warkworth and Alnmouth are an easy walk away and the beach is stunning, especially in the glorious sunshine we were lucky enough to see. The owners are extremely helpful and all information provided by them was helpful and clear.

We had a great time and will definitely return!!!

We have just returned from a short stay at Lyme cottage and had an amazing time! The cottage was immaculate, warm, cosy and well equipped. The location is stunning and views of the sea were amazing we loved sitting out in the garden enjoying the view and wildlife... even had a deer walk past one evening! The access down to the beach is an easy walk and well worth it, beautiful beach with direct access to coastal path which we walked along to Alnmouth and also to Warkworth-great tea room Bertram's. To much to do in such a short space time highlight for us was sugar sands beach accessible by car through Low Stead farm with honesty box to have access to park at the beach. Well worth it on a sunny day stunning beach! Had great communication with owners from the start with great info pack would definitely recommend! Thank you for letting us share your much loved and well cared for cottage.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning area

  • 5 of 5

This is an immaculate cottage, with everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday by the sea. The cottage is warm, extremely clean, well equipped and bright and sunny.Furnishings and equipment are of a very high quality. The lovely garden overlooking the sea is a real bonus. The cottage is in a beautiful area of Northumberland and is very well positioned for visiting, shopping and walking. Alnwick and the wonderful Treehouse restaurant are within easy access. The owner gave clear instructions to gain access to the property and the welcome guide in the house was really helpful. We are looking forward to returning to Lyme Cottage next year and I would recommend the property to everyone.
