“The house was of a very high standard, everything had been thought about. It was on a one way street off the main Rd and 2 streets from the front and beach. A 10 min walk to shops and within an hr to bamburgh, alnwick and less to amble, seahouses.”

“Puffin Cottage was the perfect house and location from which to relax, and to explore the history and beauty of Northumberland. The house located in a quiet spot close to the sea. It is superbly furnished in quality items, and most comfortable. The beds are possibly the best we've experienced anywhere, including home! We appreciated the basket of fruit, nibbles, cake, and flowers. Parking outside the house was perfect.We highly recommend Puffin Cottage and rate it 5*.Keith and Jacquie.”

“Fabulous! Puffin House was a perfect homefromhome, with everything we could possibly need. Beautifully decorated but the charming owner, who could not have been more helpful. Just turn the corner at the end of the street and youre on the beach. Perfect!”
