However, the house exceeded even these high expectations.
It is absolutely beautiful, and you could not ask for a better location to enjoy stunning views, great walking, what feels like your very own beach, and easy driving to many of the delights Northumbria has to offer.
Elegantly decorated and with grand Edwardian proportions, the house somehow also manages to feel luxuriously large and cosy and welcoming at the same time.
The kitchen is extensively equipped and just asks to be cooked in as a family. We welcomed the logs for a fire in the sitting room (it was November) and, throughout the stay, never needed anything that hadn't already been considered and made available.
Sue was a real help in booking the property. We had all the details we needed and my security deposit was promptly returned.
This is quite a big house - so if you aren't comfortable walking about a bit or managing a lot of stairs it might not be for you. But for anyone happy with that, Ferrysyde is pretty much perfect....
Just accept that your own kitchen might look a bit small afterwards and you'll be planning your return even as you are driving away on your last day!
