Rather unusual cottage, inasmuch that the accommodation is "upside down". The first floor open plan living area is light and spacious, with comfortable seating, a large screen smart TV and an area in the bay window for dining, which has a pleasant view towards the golf course and beach. The adjoining kitchen area is well equipped, although the cooker and microwave took a couple of days and lots of knob turning and button pressing to understand. The instruction manual merely confused us. Downstairs are the two en suite bedrooms, the front room having a double bed and built in storage ,but a limited amount of free space. The rear bedroom is larger, with a double and a single bed BUT no window! Not only does this mean the room is very dark on even the brightest days, but, more importantly, it has no means of ventilation, other than leaving a side door open, onto a narrow alley. Not something one wants to do at night. This meant the room got stuffy at night and wouldn't be acceptable to us during warm weather. Although the beds in this room were very comfortable, the wooden frames project beyond the mattresses at the foot of the beds and the pointed corners caused bruised legs on more than one occasion. The on street parking wasn't too much of a problem, although this might change in the high season. The area is well worth visiting for its beautiful beaches and wealth of historical sites.

My friend and I stayed in Jackson's Cottage for a week. The cottage is VERY well equipped and was spotlessly clean. The layout of the cottage means that you have a wonderful view of the sea from the Bay window upstairs. The parking wasn't a problem as you could park in the bus stop parking bay to unload and then find a place to park the car. We found no problem parking in the street each evening. The pub shown as next door to the cottage is closed and looks as if it has been for a while. We found the cottage quiet throughout our stay. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a great place to stay, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously and hope to return another time. The location is great, so many lovely places to visit nearby, incredible beaches and the people are very friendly. On our first Sunday (we arrived Saturday evening) we were looking for Sunday lunch and found a pub Dunstan Hotel where we had an amazing roast lunch (huge portions) for £12.95!!!! We were so full we couldn't manage a pudding! Fish and Chips is a must as the fish is so fresh, lots of place to find this. All in all we had a wonderful stay at this delightful cottage.

We stayed for a week at Jacksons Cottage and couldn't fault it. We stayed at the cottage with my son and his family and had two cars. We didn't find parking a problem we always found a parking space. The cottage has a lovely view of the golf course and sea through the upstairs lounge window, it was a lovely place to sit with a brew and watch the world go by. The kitchen is fitted with everything you need including a washer/dryer which my daughter in law made good use of. The beach is a couple of minutes walk away as is the Red Lion pub which serves lovely food and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We are looking to book again for the new year.

Cottage description stated - in centre of Alynmouth. Should have read in centre of main street in Alynmouth. Bus stop really close - very frequent service from early morning to late evening so engine running etc. Also 3 parking spaces right in front of cottage, again constant coming and going but practically impossible to use for the cottage renters unless very lucky. SO NOISY. Rear bedroom has very little natural light, opaque glass door to rear alley, so no fresh air, ditto for front bedroom as this window opened onto the pavement/street. People stood waiting for buses, talking, on mobiles etc and smoking so smoke would drift upstairs into lounge if windows open there. Operating the electric hob was a nightmare due to safety lock and no brochure to give instructions on how to clear this. Clean, good beds etc. Owner was very helpful when we arrived to find that the key did not appear to be available from the pub. Fortunately she advised where we could locate one. We are a mature couple and had just spent a lovely week in a Sykes cottage in the Yorkshire Dales so we found our experience at Jackson's very disappointing to say the least. We would not want to return to this property. I agree with another persons comments on the lack of access to many of the coastal towns ,many have signs saying - no vehicles past this point. Not helpful if person has mobility problem. There is a lovely fish restaurant in Amble.

A delightful cottage, spotlessly clean with everything we needed, the cottage was very comfortable and cosy, amazing view and a fab shower. Located in a lovely little village, with local shops and pubs, and neighbouring places within easy reach. I would highly recommend this cottage, and would certainly book it again if I was to return to the area. A most enjoyable stay.

We fell in love with the cottage and the area in general. The owner was kind enough to provide us with towels because we were travelling by train and packing minimally. The cottage is clean, inviting and warm with great views from the bay window. It is located on a friendly yet peaceful street. I so enjoyed waking up to the sound of birdsong and spending time people - watching from the bay window. A stone's throw from sandy beach and spectacular views. Also cottage is 50yards from a bus stop, which was so handy for us. Would recommend any of the local eateries, but we particularly enjoyed great food from Bistro 23, who were kind enough to let us have 'takeaway' food even though they don't usually serve it. A great holiday.

We stayed in this cottage for a week in July, it was comfortably furnished with all mod cons. Two en suite bathrooms was an added bonus, good views to the sea and the golf course, we would stay there again.

What a nice place to stay, very clean, warm and cosy.The kitchen is well equipped, with everything we used working well..The bedrooms are a good size and the shower is brilliant. The locals are very welcoming. We have tried almost all the eateries and they were all good. The best by far is the Italian- they even do a happy hour early in the evening.Overall, a lovely holiday experience, Thank you Mrs Jackson and Sykes Cottages.
