History of the area is brought back to life at the nearby Woodhorn Museum and Country Park.

Stunning location right next to the sea, the cottage was cozy and warm with everything you could need for a relaxing stay provided.

Mr G,

Our only regret is that we couldn't book the property next year straight away. What a superb place!

Mr L,

This home was wonderful. It was much more spacious than it appears on the website and the views are amazing. We enjoyed the home and it was very well equipped. The sunroom was big and really useful for the dogs. We will book again and recommend to family and friends.

miss M,

Quiet relaxing holiday, in a friendly location. Property views are amazing.

Previous Customer,

We have booked with you several times before and the process has been smooth each time. We found Skears Cottage to be a lovely home from home, with plenty of room and very well equipped. We enjoyed having the lovely sandy beach literally on the doorstep, and even though the weather was not kind to us, we had a great week and found plenty to do.

Miss Helen T,

Most incredible property. Perfect location and gorgeous kitchen with all you need to make any kind of meal. Would highly recommend. I would stay there again in a flash. The conservatory is especially amazing in all weathers.

Dr C,

Very comfortable, great location, huge beach a stones throw away.

Ms C,

Upon arrival at the property found to be lovely clean and welcoming with tea & coffee facilities along with cake. The views are amazing, from the bedroom window watching the sunrise from your bed and spotting the dolphins sitting on the bench outside. Having the clear glass courtyard fence is a lovely touch you can sit in the courtyard with the dogs safely and still get the seaview. It's a place we would love to return.

Mr B,

Very comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped cottage right next to the beach. Sea views from the bedrooms and large conservatory. Our two dogs loved the space. The cottage had a secure patio area which meant we could leave the backdoor open when we were home. The small garden area is across a driveway used for additional homes in the cul-de-sac and was not secure, which was a shame because although we always accompanied the dogs across into the garden we couldn't site and relax and watch the fabulous sea views because we were always having to keep an eye on them. A little gate would have provided enough of a demarcation to stop them wandering onto the drive. But this did not in any way detract from this fabulous property and the great time we had.

Mrs Kate W,

so close to the beach. very dog friendly. very comfortable to relax in

Ms Alison C,

Fabulous house. Stunning location.

Mrs Jane R,

We took the train from Morpeth to Edinburgh for a look around the Christmas markets. Morpeth is a lovely town to have a stroll through. Beamish was great day out, we went on a Sunday when everything was open and had lovely day. It was so nice to come ‘home’ every night to this beautiful house. I will not forget sitting in bed every morning looking at the beautiful view from the bedroom window. Priceless!
