Testimonials

  • My husband & I have just spent 4 nights in a Sandhaven Beach Chalet. It was delightful. The accommodation was exceptionally clean & comfortable. Everything we needed such as bed linen, cooking & dining requirements, plenty of hot water & excellent shower were provided. Within seconds of walking out of front door we were on the beach promenade & the sand dunes. Very quiet & restful at night & excellent car parking facilities.We cannot fault the chalet and the reception staff & would highly recommend the chalets as a self catering accommodation in South Shields.
