Sandra and Richard are the perfect hosts and their attention to detail is outstanding. e.g. scented candles and chocolate treats, We stayed in the Swallows Rest room which is beautifully furnished, with a separate stunning bathroom, including a spa bath. Breakfast was wonderful and the fridge, drinks and treats made for a really special break. Plus good WiFi was a... More

What else can I possibly say that hasn't already been said? We spent two nights in the haven, the name is very, very appropriate. After spending a month travelling Australia, my partner greeted me from the airport and whisked me straight to the birdsong cottage. After living in shabby hostels and a 24 hour flight, this place was like a... More

Totally unable to fault this beautiful B&B; Richard & Sandra were lovely and friendly. The room was faultless with I think the most comftorable bed I have ever stayed in! The hot tub on the balcony was amazing. Juice and water plus a coffe machine which was a ovely touch. Also toiletries and hair straightners in the room- absolutley lovely... More

What an amazing stay my husband and I had on Saturday night in this little gem of a place. From the moment we were welcomed so warmly by Richard and Sandra to when we left we felt like we were cocooned in our own little world. We stayed in the Haven room and even though I had read the reviews... More

Just returned home from our stay at Birdsong Cottage, we stayed for one night in the Swallows Rest room. We had a lovely warm welcome from Richard & Sandra. The room itself was immaculate & had lots of lovely extras we wasn't expecting (mini fridge, snacks, variety of tourist information) The bathroom was stunning with lovely features like twinkling star...

My wife and I have just got back home after a wonderful 5 night stay in Northumberland at Birdsong Cottage, which certainly lived up to all the 5 star reviews already posted on Trip Advisor. On arrival we were greeted by Richard and Sandra, who made us feel like we were visiting friends rather than staying with people we had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and every detail had been thought through in this beautifully situated B+B. We would quite happily recommend it to everybody we know. You must simply book the room with the hot tub on the outside balcony.

We stayed in the Haven room at Birdsong Cottage on a Saturday night as a relaxing getaway. Upon arrival we were met by Richard and Sandra who were extremely friendly and welcoming, seeing us to our room and showing us where things were and how they worked. The room itself was spotlessly clean, with some brilliant unexpected extras like chocolates... More

We came to the Birdsong Cottage B and B for two nights for our first break away as a newly engaged couple. We saw the boutique B and B on the Internet and were promised a beautiful location where you can hear the birds chirp as soon as you arrive, luxury room and jacuzzi bath tub. When we arrived as...
