“Good sized comfortable cottage in peaceful location”

A comfortable cottage in a rural location, plenty of room for our kids aged 14 and 7. They enjoyed the swooping swallows and ponies. The owners were very helpful and provided wine and eggs on arrival, as well as a good fire! They also had suggestions for things to do and places to eat - we had a nice meal in the Fisherman's Arms in Birgham, not the cheapest but good food and a warm welcome. We catered for ourselves mostly; the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, crockery etc. The washing machine worked (no dryer though); we didn't try the dishwasher. Bathroom was fine, bedrooms & living room/diner were spacious, our daughter enjoyed being up in the attic room. Stairs would be a little steep for pre-schoolers though.
A good base for some tourist attractions e.g Holy Island, the Farne Islands, Bamburgh, are about 30 mins away, and of course Scotland is literally across the river - Coldstream was only a few minutes drive. Perhaps a little far from Alnwick, Amble etc unless you're happy with driving each day (we did go to Alnwick Castle & Gardens and it was worth it but quite a long drive). Walks from the cottage are pleasant. There were plenty of sites we didn't have time for e.g. the Light railway at Heatherslack, Flodden Field, Berwick, walks in the Cheviots.

Liked best: Peaceful location, good sized property with log fire
Liked least: Central heating currently dependent on log fire, sometimes a bit cold in some but not all other rooms, but I understand this is to be changed shortly

This cottage was first class , in an area of great beauty . The hosts were top notch , friendly and informative of their area . A car is a must , but then the area is best explored that way . Lots of history , and a stones throw from Scotland . Thoroughly enjoyed our week here .
