Guest Reviews

We holiday in Northumberland annually and are constantly on the lookout for new places to stay. Coastal Retreats has delivered consistently and would be our first port of call.

"We first holidayed with you as a young couple for my 30th birthday and now almost 10 years (and 3 young boys later) as I approach my 40th we have come back to you time and time again and our boys love your company just as much as we do - everything is so well thought through and catered for. We love it!"

"This was the second holiday with Coastal/Country Retreats, and on both occasions, the accommodation has been excellent and the company very efficient to deal with. Our COVID enquiries were also met with friendly courtesy and helpfulness."

"I have been impressed with Coastal Retreats. Despite difficult times in the Covid pandemic, it was easy to get in touch by email with a very quick response to any queries."

"We love Northumberland and in particular this cottage. It is so special, being on the coastal path and on the edge of Craster."
