"Disappointing.....to say the least"
Brigand Cottage was not exactly as described in the first review shown on Trip Advisor. The writer of that review could do well writing Fairy Stories. The location was perfect. Perched on a low cliff … More

"happy hols with my german shepherd"
Had a wonderful time at Brigand Cottage in Creswell....the owners Don and Ruth ensured we had everything for an enjoyable six nights stay and were very friendly and hospitable offering advice on walks and making sure we were well looked after at their cottage. The cottage is 50 yards from the 8 miles sandy beach and I thoroughly enjoyed my daily walks with Jax my german shepherd. It was so pleasant to watch the sea waves from our patio and extended brig which is part of the cottage and the people in the village, especially the ice cream shop at the end of the road (Creswell Ices), were extremely helpful and friendly. We went on trips to local castles at Walksworth, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne and spent a few hours at Druridge country park just 3 miles away. Seahouses for a lovely dinner at the jolly fisherman and fish and chips from Amble from the harbour fisheries and a pub meal at the heritage inn in walksworth are high recommends from me. All are dog friendly. I shall definitely make another trip up as it was wonderful and I have many special memories. Ms Amrit Kaur - August 2014.

"comfortable cottage and very near sandy beach"
Comfortable cottage and easy to relax in. Everything there that you could need, with many extras especially in the bathroom. The cottage has a coal fire which heats radiators should it become cold at night. The bed were very comfortable. The terrace during the day was lovely, just to sit out and relax. Dogs are welcome and our two enjoyed the terrace and the beautiful sandy beach which is just minutes away. Fantastic!
Donald is a very gracious, friendly host and had given us a lovely welcoming pack. He even went out of his way to bring us some ice cubes! I would easily recommend this cottage
