5/5 Excellent

So, where to start. The cleanest property we have ever rented, everything pristine from teaspoon to bedding. Brilliantly equipped, well laid out and comfortable too. We chose partly for the seaview, which we even better than we had hoped. Lovely walk along the prom to the village centre. We even saw the Bottle-nosed Dolphins on a couple of occasions. Can't wait to return.

5/5 Excellent

Great base to explore Northumberland
We loved our stay in Newbiggin. The host was very responsive to our requests and provided good local knowledge of places to eat and visit. Property has been modernised recently and is in great condition.
