    We were very surprised on arrival as the pictures online did not do the cottage any justice. We were 4 adults, 3 kids and 2 dogs. The cottage was roomy & comfy. A lovely welcome package was waiting for us with fabulous biccies, tea, milk & tasty wine!! Maybe it was the time of the year but we were extremely pleased that there were 2 parking spaces (garage & land nxt to it) as the on street parking was packed! The cupboards were full of cleaning and household goods which was great if we'd forgotten anything. Just a few really minor things to mention like not enough drinking glasses (lots of wine glasses!) and the heating guide was not clear or easy. (The night's were extremely warm and sweaty and the days were a little cool!) A good idea would be to offer or fit a stairgate to stop the doggies from going upstairs but that's just our opinion! Even though the kitchen table was a fabulous size we found it a little oversized and struggled to work around it when the 4 adults were in the kitchen together. We would have preferred a smaller seating area enabling more room to manoeuvre!!! An added bonus was being 5 minutes walk from the sea. On a whole it was a really lovely experience & would definately recommend! We all enjoyed a lovely New Year break at Littlecroft Cottage - thank you !!

    The cottage was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Cooking was a pleasure with the large oven and the fridge and freezer were large enough to store all our food. The beds were comfortable and the amount of bathrooms, showers etc suited our group well. The entrance hallway was excellent for drying the dog off after our daily walks. The lounge was well equipped with games and jigsaw and there were toys for younger people. We would definitely visit again.

    The garden was overgrown and neglected, there was a damp smell when entering the property and the downstairs bedroom smelt and felt damp. The bathrooms upstairs were good, bedrooms ok and location excellent. Overall, it was ok for a weekend but badly designed downstairs and in great need of updating. We didn’t feel it was good value for money.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; The garden is serviced every 2 weeks and it may have been ready for cutting last weekend. I have just replaced all furniture in the downstairs bedroom and there was a small damp patch that was caused by a down spout blockage, this has been attended to. There is no damp. I have also put new curtains in some of the bedrooms and as the photos show the property is in good condition.

    Great cottage in a beautiful area, the house was a great size for 8 of us and the welcome pack was really good. The owner was very nice and helped us with our supermarket delivery when we were delayed on our arrival due to train problems. The mattresses were very comfortable and we all slept well. A few little things needed fixing and it would have been perfect. There is a hole in the bath in the bedroom which means you can only have shallow baths, the cooker needs to have the timer set before it will work but there is no note of this, the carpets still had some dog hairs on from the previous occupants, the door to the main bathroom is very stiff and does not fit the door frame and the information pack needs updating. I would say you need a car when visiting littlecroft, the train station is 25 minutes walk away and the bus service is only every hour and very expensive. We enjoyed our stay and found the house very comfortable the things I have mentioned above are only very small and the house it's self is very well equipped and nicely furnished. The garden was also a bonus although not very big it was big enough for us and was very private.

    great holiday, 1 minor problem. was resolved very quickly, I would make 1 recommendation that as we had an elderly infirm person who used the downstairs facilities, that a full size washbasin be installed in the downstairs bedroom.

    We had a good family holiday at Littlecroft. We enjoyed the unusual house, which is large enough to accommodate us easily even though at one point we were seven adults, a two-year-old and a baby. Parking for a third car when visitors came was slightly more difficult as the house is on the main road through Alnmouth, but the location was a great advantage when we wanted to eat out, buy in fish and chips, go to church, visit the lovely gift shop, or collect a few items of shopping from the surprisingly well-stocked Post office. Quite close is Alnwick for any other needs, including the famous Barter Books. We had lovely walks along the beach and round the town: there is a children's playground less than ten minutes' walk from the house which is a pleasure for adults too, with its view of the boats by the river. We enjoyed a trip to Warkworth Castle and town: a good destination if you are tired of long drives. The garden is difficult for unsupervised children as it is not enclosed and has steep concrete steps, but it's great for sitting out on the lawn and reading! Altogether we had a very happy time in a delightful friendly place which is a good base for exploring the many pleasures of the Northumberland coast.

    The neighbours are very unfriendly regarding the parking.. they made it clear we should not be there!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry this has happened. We have a garage and a space next to the garage so I will speak to the neighbours regarding this matter. We have new neighbours so this could be an issue but we all have to work together. Obviously if the lane is blocked other than unloading it could be an issue but we have had no problems for years. There is parking also in front of the property.

    Littlecroft is an ideal house for family groups. It is spacious and comfortable. It’s in a great position to walk to the beach and to visit surrounding areas. It is well equipped and we weren’t short of anything. The owners left a very generous welcome pack. A couple of minor issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently with a text or e mail. As mentioned by previous clients the front curtains were very thin and with the sun shining in ( a bonus) it was very light early morning. With 2 children and a baby it was good to have the extra games/ books and beach toys.
