Stayed at this cottage for my wedding at Backworth Hall. I hadn't even realised they existed despite growing up nearby. A definite hidden gem and absolutely perfect for what I needed. The location is fabulous (3 miles from the coast and just a short ride...More
Lovely cottage would stay there again
With the location perfectly placed in a small village with a butchers, supermarkets, local shops and a nearby Toby Carvery, the experience at Dukes Cottages is second to none. Upon arrival you will immediately notice how gorgeous the cottage is and will be given a warm welcome from the owners. Inside, the cottage is dressed from head to foot in any essential that you may need. WiFi is provided per house and is usually at a base of 4MB/s which is great for a countryside place. There is a gorgeous modern electric cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer; those intending to stay for a fortnight or more will have no issues what so ever. About a 2 minutes walk from the cottage is a local convenience store which is stocked with everything you will need for your first night if needs be. If shopping is more your thing, Cramlington's huge shopping centre is just a short drive away and offers something for all of the family so there is no excuse not to explore. For a great fishing and crabbing spot, Blyth Quay is excellent and very popular, with it only being a 15-20 minute drive away. Also on the same road is The Commissioners Quay Inn where you can get some splendid food. All in all, Dukes Cottages is incredibly placed and is a superb location for a comfortable, cozy and happy holiday. Nothing can be faulted!
Fantastic cottage with all you could need
Perfect little cottage close to the sea and the countryside. Very cozy stone cottage full of character but with all the amenities of a modern home. Close to the beach in Whitley Bay 5 min from the Metro into Newcastle (20min) and 30 min from the wild Northumbrian hills. What more could you want? -1 star because the pub over the road is no longer open so a short drive if you want to eat out.
Great accomodation, great location. Close to metro and has local amenities within the village of Backworth.
After having had multiple holidays where me and my family have stayed here, I have to say this must be my favourite place to go on holiday. It's absolutely beautiful and it's always kept wonderfully. The lady and gentleman that run the cottages are always very happy and pleasant and they always go out of their way to help. I hope to go again soon!
