“Our home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This was our third stay at Riverside Cottage and it feels like your own home rather than a holiday cottage.

Its location is ideal, I love enjoying my morning coffee down by the river under the magical bridges. It is well located for walkers and situated in the ideal spot for touring beautiful Northumberland with its history, castles and beaches.

Over the bridge is the Running Fox that supplies the delicious welcome goodie pack full of their breads, pies and cake of the day. We left the week before the Northumberland Arms re-opened so looking forward to visiting there during our next stay at the cottage.

The cottage is tastefully decorated and immaculately clean, the kitchen is properly equipped and the shower is strong and the water is piping hot.

I definitely recommend everyone to book a relaxing stay at Riverside Cottage.

Darren's directions to the property are brilliant - including actual photographs of the junctions so that you know exactly what to look for.

We really enjoyed staying here, it is an ideal location for exploring the area, the house itself is charming and has a great kitchen full of all you need if you want to self cater, the heating worked brilliantly so we were lovely and toasty. We would definatly stay again

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Lovely cottage, well equipped and in a lovely position for the A1 making it easy to get out and about. Lots of lovely places to visit some with free parking, a rarity nowadays, beautiful beaches, good eating places, and a pleasure to drive around on the many somewhat empty roads, and if like us you did not want to drive every day there was an excellent bus service right on your doorstep. The cottage benefited from the Running Fox bakery across the road but we were thankful we only had a week otherwise we would have been a stone heavier than when we arrived, an amazing shop. All in all a lovely cottage in a lovely village surrounded by lovely countryside.

“Best cottage ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Kids booked this cottage as a Christmas present and their research certainly paid off. Everything was perfect from the location to the cottage itself. The thought that had gone into it by the owners was obvious including the lovely welcome hamper and an excellent guide handbook. Just off the A1 and minutes away by car to fantastic beaches. Our poodle loved it too with lovely walks just outside. Will definitely be returning.
