We had a lovely family holiday. The cottage had everything needed for a relaxing stay. Warm, cosy, well equipped with lots of space. Recommended.

We had a great week in Sycamore Cottage. The house is lovely and very comfortable and well equipped. The coast is only a few miles away, and Newcastle is easily accessible on the Metro (only a few minutes drive away). There are lots of lovely walks straight out of the front door and on local beaches, our dog had a great time!

A beautifully furnished property with plenty of space - perfect for a family get together. The location gives easy access to Newcastle and east to the wonderful Northumbrian coastline with it's castles and amazing beaches. There is a great network of footpaths from the property - perfect for dog walks and a village playground close by.
