Such a comfort to stay at a place that exactly fits the description on looking for somewhere to stay. Greeted by the hosts who guided us through the accommodation to our spotless room which had a welcoming table of coffee machine, tea, shortbread, Pringles and a fridge with milk & bottled water. The bed was v.comfortable and the bathroom spacious with a variety of shampoos and body washes in case you had forgotten to pack them! There was a tick-list to complete for breakfast that included bacon stotties that to eat were absolutely delicious - my wife also enjoyed the kiwi fruit/blueberry combination. Two peaceful nights were spent at the B&B and could not have wished for a more pleasant stay, which we would not hesitate to book again & would throughly recommend (already have), to anyone. Thanks for the time stayed.

Wow! We’ve just returned from a romantic, tranquil evening and I feel the most relaxed I’ve felt in ages. That is thanks to Birdsong Cottage! Everything was absolutely perfect! The hosts, the room (we booked the Haven), the views and the breakfast. All the little special touches really made it a night to remember and we will definitely be back. If you love the thought of relaxing in a hot tub, gazing up at the stars, glass in hand, absolute peace then look no further! And for Dark Sky enthusiasts this is a perfect location! Thank you so much Sandra and Richard you made us feel so welcome!

What a find! Booked a two night stay here for the two of us. Very warm and friendly welcome from our hosts. Birdsong cottage is tucked away in a quiet road a short distance from Alnwick. Handy to get to local towns and sights. Room was spotless and bed comfortable and all you could wish for including a fridge, wine glasses, a top notch coffee machine. So comfortable and spacious. Lovely to talk gardening with Richard and gain some new tips for when we go home. Breakfast delivered to the door on a tray makes it even more special and we were truly spoilt !

Upon arriving at the birdsong, we were greeted at the car by one of the owners, Richard. He was very warm, welcoming and friendly. He escorted us into the b n b, which had a very homely atmosphere! Our room was clean, cosy and comfortable. The amenities were exceptional with a fridge, hairdryer and coffee and tea making facilities in the room. We had a very peaceful nights sleep. The following morning we had our breakfast brought to us in our room which was a lovely personal touch! Overall, I would highly recommend this establishment. Excellent service!!

We stayed at Birdsong Cottage last night as we were going to a wedding reception at nearby Charlton Hall. On arrival we were given a lovely welcome by Richard. We stayed in The Haven room which is beautiful and has a balcony with a hot tub. The room was lovely and warm and the bed was very comfortable. The en suite wet room is lovely with a great shower. There were so many little touches that made all the difference, such as bottles of water in the fridge and complimentary sweets. There is a coffee machine with lots of different types of coffees, and a kettle with every type of tea bag you could want. Breakfast was amazing! Brought to the room piping hot and so tasty! It really was like being at home, we'll definitely be back! Thank you Richard & Sandra!
