“Lovely location”

Lovely little cottage in an ideal location for a quiet break or drives out.

My wife and I stayed for a week with a friend in July. It has a small entrance hall, a lounge/diner/kitchen and a utility cupboard downstairs and two bedrooms and a bathroom up. There's a wood burner as well (although we didn't use it as it was the height of summer!). The garden is small (and on a slope) - but fine for the three of us and fenced well enough to keep my dog in.

Reading back, that all sounds a bit underwhelming. It's not meant to. It's a reasonably priced very comfortable cottage - but the location is where it comes into its own.

It's lovely. There's a 15 minute walk over some fields to get to the nearest pub, there's no noise at night (even the local sheep and chickens are sleeping) and the views are superb.

It's also very central for many of Northumberland's tourist destinations - the National Trust property and Cragside (dog friendly) is a must and only 10 minutes drive away.

We'd visit again (as would the dog!).

Arrived on Friday night and the cottage was freezing. Flicked one switch and it was instant warmth!! This gave us the chance to get the fire started. Beautifully kept and very up to date. There was wine and chocolates for us which was a big plus to start our weekend. Bedrooms very comfortable and quilts nice and thick for this cold time of year. Bathroom very nice but shower only spraying out from a couple of holes. Nothing that lime scale remover won't solve but a great excuse for a relaxing bath. Games and DVDs supplied. Lovely walks with the dogs. Easy to clean at the end of our stay (leave as you find Moto) but could do with a new Hoover to lighten the load!! Lol
