“Tafay House”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2019

Although it sleeps 10 comfortably there are not enough bathrooms for 10 and the countertop dishwasher is quite inadequate. Otherwise well equipped and great location for the beach.

Owner's reply: I am pleased you all had a great time in Northumberland and I do hope you will come and visit us again very soon. I am sorry to hear you were upset bout the number of bathrooms and the dishwasher, However the bathrooms are clearly listed in the description (we even have a photographs) Also the dishwasher is clearly stated as a 4 place setting appliance, I am not sure there is anything else we could have done to make you more aware.

“Tahfay house great location”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2018

We loved the house and the location, with so many bedrooms and us having a large family it gave us all a chance to holiday together. The house was well equipped and the owner had provided toys for the children to play with which was very thoughtful. We would consider booking the house again for another large family holiday.

“Tahfay House”

Reviewed 11 May 2017

A group of six adults for a weekend chilling and golfing. The house was spotless and has loads of room with all the comforts you need to make it a home from home. Positioned in a great location just up from the beach in a quiet street just 5 minutes walk from the town centre with plenty parking on the street. The house has good sized bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. The living room is of a good size and was more than comfortable for six adults to chill and get comfy in. Kitchen has all the essentials you need with a large dining table and plenty of room if your going to be doing any cooking and eating in. While there I have to add we played 2 really good golf courses at the Longhirst resort which were in top condition for the time of year. There is an Italian restaurant in the town called Due Fratelli where we ate, which was excellent and great value for money. I would recommend a visit to Tahfay house if your looking for a short break. We certainly will return again.

Owner's reply: I am so pleased you all had a great time at Tahfay House and enjoyed the golfing in Northumberland. We thank you for your kind review and are very grateful for leaving the house clean and tidy. We would be delighted to welcome you again.
