“We had a lovely time at Northolme.  The accommodation was perfect for us, with plenty of room for 6 adults and a baby, we were not on top of each other.We ate at the Italian restaurant which was very nice and the staff (one waitress in particular) were very friendly and accommodating.  We went into the pub, but didn't eat there, but again the staff were very friendly.  We also used the pool and gym which were both very good.The facilities in the house were very good and it was lovely and clean.We had a lovely time and would definitely book again.Thank you.”

“Hi. Another fabulous stay for us in your lovely, homely and well presented house. We noticed you had put hooks in the bathrooms...brilliant.We love it here and can suggest only two things. A shaving point would be really helpful and also the TV in the main lounge could do with being angled so that viewers on both sofas can see it easily.”

“We had a lovely time at Northolme, thank you.”

“Excellent location to visit other areas of interest and location to beach. Even though it rained constantly the duration of our holiday we really enjoyed it. The property was like home from home everything you needed was there, very comfortable and warm. Swimming facilities were nice, downside being the water was cold but that's to everyone's taste. A play area for the children especially in the summer would be nice as would a convenience shop on site but these are just added bonuses. Overall though it's a nice village and the house was fantastic and we would definitely go again.”

“This is our third visit to The Bay, with regard to the accommodation in respect of cleanliness, decor & standard of furnishing Northolme was by far the best we had stayed in and would not hesitate in booking Northolme again when we next visit The Bay”

- Sheila Oct 15

“Had a great week, really nice house - very clean and tidy! Well equipped with everyday items (iron, ironing board, wash powder etc.) and the owners were extremely pleasant to deal with and fast at responding - all worth the money! Only issue was parking - had to park on the grass which was all muddy when it rained.  (Northolme now has its own dedicated parking space at the front of the property. Jan 16).”

- Tara Sep 15

“It wasn't clear if there was allocated parking and can imagine it being difficult to find a space to park at busy times of year. Apart from this we had a lovely stay.  (Northolme now has a dedicated parking space at the front of the property. Jan 16).”

“Lovely house. Had a lovely weekend. Will return. Thank you.”

“We couldn’t fault anything at Northolme -  it had everything we needed and was very clean and spacious.  We had a great stay.We felt there could be more parking at The Bay as we were a group of 3 couples and 2 kids (3 cars). No problem as Northolme is near to the reception car park but we possibly would have struggled if we were located further away.We felt the site lacked a shop.These however were minor quibbles and we are likely to return.  (Owners comment:  Northolme now has a dedicated parking space at the front of the property.

“Comments - Northolme is a beautiful cottage decorated & maintained to a much higher standard than the Hoseasons rentals with lots of extras, the only problem we had was the mattress, at home we have an expensive firm mattress due to back problems, so we could feel all the springs and it was too soft, fortunately as we have had this problem before we always bring a firm topper with us and a well padded protector to put under the fitted sheet.  Could use a hook on bathroom doors for dressing gowns but apart from this small point everything else was faultless and we are hoping to book again later in the year.  (Owners comment:  All mattresses were replaced in November 2015).”
