Reviews

The property was beautifully presented and well furnished. It was just like the photos! We chose to have all our meals apart from lunch at the property, and it had everything we needed in terms of kitchen equipment. We loved the extra equipment we could borrow from the games room cupboard. The kids used the body boards for sledging down the sand dunes! The highlight of their trip! We also used the windbreak which was very handy as we don't own one. The table tennis table is brilliant and the main reason why I chose this property! Lots of spare balls and bats.

Past Customer,

So close to Bamburgh. Hadn't realised how perfect Glororum was in terms of accessing everything we wanted to see. Handy for travelling north to Holy Island, Ross Sands, Paxton House, Sunnyhills Farm Shop in Belford and Chainbridge Honey Farm (loved the double decker bus cafe and the vintage antique shop there), and equally handy for heading south to The Alnwick Garden, Seahouses, Beadnell, Embleton, Dunstanburgh Castle, and of course Bamburgh is on the doorstep.

Past Customer,

The see-saw and table tennis were big hits with our toddlers and seven year olds. So much so, we almost had to drag them out of the garden! The Coach House was lovely to come back to at the end of the day - a peaceful little idyll.

Past Customer,

We holidayed with another company in Northumberland last year to save some money and regretted it. We spent all holiday saying, we should have gone with Coastal Retreats. This holiday has been so different in so many ways and we will definitely be sticking to Coastal Retreats in the future.

Past Customer,

Have come home with my head full of design ideas. Must get hold of that cow wallpaper in the kitchen. We all loved it.

Past Customer,
