“A Wonderful Cottage”

We have just returned from a week at Croft Cottage and had a wonderful time. My first time to Northumberland and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to spend the week. Croft Cottage is perfect; clean, well equipped, warm, and very welcoming and in a great location as a base to explore the area. It was much bigger than I expected after looking at the photo’s. It had everything you could need, in fact we only ate out once at a local restaurant, as after a long day out exploring the area, the cottage was too nice to leave to go back out again. A fully fitted well equipped kitchen to cook, a great area for dining and then the loving lounge area relaxing in front of the wood burner. The master bedroom was large and roomy, with a lovely comfortable king size bed, which was a struggle to get out of each morning! I would highly recommend Croft Cottage and also their new property which is currently being finished – Newton Retreat, as we had chance to have a sneak preview and its going to be gorgeous. Thanks for the owner for making our staff a very enjoyable one. We’ll be back!

we stayed at this amazing barn from the 22/6/13 for two weeks, having never been to northumberland before, we did not know what to expect, but we had the most wonderful surprise of one being a glorious place, but also the base of our holiday, croft cottage was amazing!!! from the moment we stepped into the barn we could not get over how big it was! it was beautiful ,tastefully furnished and decorated with lots of lovely touches, like the toiletries and the sheets had a beautiful scent and a comfortable bed and lots of towels which was a great surprise, as we bought our own with us! the surrounding countryside was peaceful and quiet, the owners jeremy and elaine were warm, funny and approachable. this property is a gem and i really did not want to place a review of this piece of heaven, but i knew i must as it was a great find, and anyone who stays here will love it! it is situated perfectly for all places that you need to visit, and there is a lot! we were very sad to leave both the cottage and northumberland but we will definately be back! thank you so much x

We received a nice warm welcome from the owners Elanie & Jermey. They explained how to work everything in the cottage, which was really helpful. They also offered local knowledge of the area.
Great location and so peaceful.
It is a warm clean cottage and very spacious, nice open plan living area.This cottage had everything we needed. We loved the log burner and the cooker. We could not fault Croft Cottage.
Thank you again to Elanie & Jermey

“Outstanding Accomodation”
Reviewed March 29, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Well - where do we start! From the moment we arrived at the cottage in a secluded little spot just near Embleton, we knew our week ahead would be pleasurable. We were greeted by Jeremy (one of the owners) who welcomed us to the cottage and showed us around ensuring we knew how everything worked and that are needs were catered for.

The Cottage itself was even better than it looked in the pictures - light, spacious and in a lovely spot. Everything we needed for the week was there. There is ample space both in and outside the property with a real wood burning stove for those chilly winter evenings.

The location suited us down to the ground as it was ideally placed for exploring the Northumbria coastline and all the local attractions. Both Jeremy and Elaine offered some useful tips on the best places to go and visit, which made our stay all the more enjoyable.

The cottage would suit both individuals, couples and families (in our case two adults and a 13 week old baby). The cottage was immaculate, the owners friendly and welcoming and the location perfect. We will be back next year!

“Outstanding Cottage”
Reviewed March 20, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We stayed in Croft Cottage for a week with our 2 year old daughter. The location is perfect - a detached cottage with a couple of other houses down a little lane made us feel well into the countryside yet we were only a few miles from the town of Alnwick and all the amenities we needed.

The cottage is beautifully presented and the owners very welcoming. Our daughter loved the field and the swing at the bottom, and we appreciated being able to walk from the door if we wanted to. The furniture and decor is modern and clean; the kitchen had everything we wanted and the TV, DVD player and stereo system with a link for an ipod are all modern. The beds are comfy and the furniture well chosen. The extra cloakroom and small utility with washer/drier all came in handy. The rooms were all very warm - none of the cold bathrooms or small rooms that you get in some cottages. The owners provided us with a lovely highchair. As there is no access to the loft room, we appreciated having no stairs to worry about for our toddler as the bedrooms and living area are all on one level.

The coast is only a short drive away with lovely walks and pubs and the A1 is minutes in the other direction to enable you to speed off to places further afield.

All in all one of the best cottages we have stayed in in a while. First Class.

“Mini-Honeymoon Hideaway!”

Elaine and Jeremy couldn't have gone to more trouble to help my new husband plan for our arrival for a 3 day mini-honeymoon after our wedding. We entered to smell fresh red roses, burning fire and to my joy some champagne chilling in the fridge. The cottage was stunning - gorgeous beams in open plan living. We were shown how to use the wood fire - the absolute centre piece for the lounge and spent a fabulous few days walking on the beaches at Bamburgh and Embleton and curling up in front of the fire at night. Nothing seemed too much trouble and we were even offered a lift to the local pub! We are already planning to come back to the area as it is enchanting. Highly recommend this cottage to anyone!
