    “The property has electric heating rather than electric storage heating as Sykes listed.”

    We found this preferable. The booklet for the heating was irrelevant as notices in the property stated that we were not to adjust the heating. A simple notice to say, just switch the radiators on individually at the power switch would have been helpful. The toilet seat was loose and regularly slid forward until we fathomed out how to secure it. The power switch for the shower is at the opposite end of the bathroom from the shower itself and was not obvious. There is no shelving or cupboard ...

    We found this preferable. The booklet for the heating was irrelevant as notices in the property stated that we were not to adjust the heating. A simple notice to say, just switch the radiators on individually at the power switch would have been helpful. The toilet seat was loose and regularly slid forward until we fathomed out how to secure it. The power switch for the shower is at the opposite end of the bathroom from the shower itself and was not obvious. There is no shelving or cupboard in the bathroom for storing toiletries. The edges of the shower base were very dirty. The bathroom sink plug constantly popped up so the water drained. There was no non stick fish slice to use with the non stick frying pan. We found the seating in the lounge uncomfortable. It would be nice to have a bedside mat to step onto, rather than the cold hard floor. Other than these niggles, we did like the property and location and very much enjoyed our visit. We would consider returning in the future.

About the location

EMBLETON

Craster 3 miles; Beadnell 4 miles; Alnwick 7 miles.

The pretty village of Embleton is ideally placed for exploring one of the most attractive stretches of Northumberland's Heritage Coastline. A beautiful grassy path runs from the village to neighbouring Craster, alongside the sea and past Dunstanburgh Castle - the largest ruined castle in Northumberland. Embleton itself has a village pub and a local hotel, and there is an excellent range of amenities in nearby Alnwick. The gardens at nearby Howick Hall are open during the summer and are noted for their beauty, whilst Alnwick Castle and Garden are a 'must-see' when visiting the area. For the keen golfer, Dunstanburgh Links Course is about 1 mile away - just one of several excellent courses in the vicinity.

Note: Starter pack of fuel for woodburning stove provided. We ask that you leave the same amount for the next guest
