This was just what I wanted as a solo traveller looking to do my own thing and prepared to cover considerable miles to see as much as I could in the time available to me. Everything about the place is A* as far as I am concerned and I would have no problem staying again or recommending others to. The location is quiet and makes for long days touring the area (everything you could want to see is near to hand), eating out lunchtime or early evening at one of the vast selection of village inns you will come across as you wander round Northumberland - and then heading back to the cottage for a bit of peace and tranquility before a easonably early night in prepration for the next days foray. I have not slept so soundly for a long time, Nick and Gail are wonderful hosts and the excellent Breakfast sets you up for big days out. Loved it.
