“Lovely, comfortable cottage in an amazing location.”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2016

Sandsedge is a super cottage, well furnished and equipped (though lacking a dishwasher), with comfortable beds and great views over Druridge Pools NWT reserve. It's a five minute walk to the dunes and the beach is fantastic (even in the middle of winter!). Brilliant for anyone even slightly interested in birds and a great place for families. The only small drawbacks are the lack of free wifi and the fact that the picture windows point the wrong way - over the courtyard rather than out to the country. Thoroughly recommended.

“Cosy and welcoming , in idyllic situation”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2016

Sandsedge Cottage is well-appointed, cosy and comfortable, in a very peaceful setting. It is only a short walk to the dunes and beautiful Druridge Bay. There is a bird sanctuary nearby and it is wonderful to see and hear different species flying over to it. The local farm shop , about a mile away,sells excellent produce , home grown and home made, and has a popular restaurant and tea room. It is an excellent base from which to explore Northumberland.

Thank you very much for responding to your recent stay (one of four visits) to Sandsedge Cottage Karen. Always a pleasure to have you stay and enjoy the peaceful surroundings as you describe. Since your last visit, the cottage has had a complete refurbish. Regards Andrew (Owner)

“Great Cottage, Great Location”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2016

We have taken lots of self-catering holidays with our dogs and this is without doubt the best cottage we've ever rented. Very comfortable, with all the amenities to make it a real home from home. Druridge bay is seven miles of golden sand with hardly anyone on it, and just a couple of minutes walk from the cottage. We loved the holiday and so did the dogs. We'll be back.

Thank you for taking the time to add a review of your recent stay at Sandsedge Cottage. It is always good to hear an opinion from a guest, echoing our obviously biased thoughts about the cottage and location. You would be very welcome to visit anytime and it would be a pleasure to welcome you back. Regards Andrew (Owner)
