A personal portfolio of holiday properties owned and managed by us – the Sykes family – our exclusive collection has been carefully curated and refined over the last 15 years. 

Our properties have been handpicked based on several standout factors, such as stunning locations, amazing views, and beautiful, quirky buildings. We’ve called upon decades of experience to restore, modernise and furnish each property with integrity and sympathetic materials. Every property embraces an appreciation of the landscape, history and community that surrounds it.

What our guests say

Simply Stunning!

The house is stunning and the views amazing! Perfectly placed in the village of Craster, a five minute walk to all amenities and the local pub which serves a delicious Sunday lunch.

The beds are very comfortable and everything you need to make your stay pleasant is provided plus a lovely welcome hamper. The customer service is excellent, we can't wait to stay again and quite frankly we were sad to leave.

Mrs Horne

Staying at Middlerigg exceeded all expectations in every way. Newly refurbished and luxuriously fitted out, the property is an extremely high end home from home. Our holiday consisted of dining and lazing around on the patio with it's wonderful views of Craster Harbour and Dunstanburgh Castle to trips to Alnwick Castle, Seahouses for a boat trip to the Farne Islands and the beautiful Bamburgh and its lovely castle. Highly recommend the Jolly Fisherman next door and also The Joiners Arms at Newton by the Sea. Also not forgetting the delicious Craster kippers! We've already booked again for next year!!

Mrs Van de Velde

We hired Tan Llan for my wife's 30th for 12 guests. Everyone absolutely loved the house and the grounds are stunning. Highly recommend and would definitely hire again in the future.

Dream home in an idyllic location

The most comfortable, well equipped property we have ever stayed in in over 40 years of self catering holidays.

Mrs Bergman


Terrific location, outstanding views, super comfortable, extremely well equipped house. Beds, power showers and kitchen equipment all top notch. Layout worked well for three generations. Sitting areas front and rear were welcome.
