“Fantastic accomodation - a real home from home”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My husband and I spent a lovely restful week at the Mules at the beginning of July and despite the rather mixed weather had a fantastic holiday.
The owner, Karen, advised us that we could probably have the property earlier than the time stated for arrival, so we rang her once we had arrived and she came straight over. She gave us a guided tour of the property and told us of some good places locally to eat. She followed this up a little later via a text with phone numbers to call to reserve tables.
Not that you would really need to dine out if you didn't want to as the kitchen is so well equiped and there is a Co-op very handy just down the road.
The property has lovely modern furniture and has a very contemporary feel to it. It has a lovely big dining table, a feature often lacking in holiday lets we have found, and comfy sofas in the lounge/diner.
All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished, although we only used the one. The bathroom, and indeed the whole property, is extremely clean and has a shower over the bath.
Newbiggin was slightly disappointing but if the weather had been better the Mules is in the ideal location for spending some time on the beach. We used it as a base to explore the rest of Northumberland visiting Berwick, Lindisfarne, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Seahouses, Amble, Hexham, Morpeth and Newcastle.

“As good as it gets.”

It delivers everything you could wish for. Yards from the sea. Comfort you would expect from a 5 star hotel. All delivered by Karen the cheerful helpful owner who wants to make your experience as good as it gets .We will return.
