This is a great cottage with brilliant facilities to suit all the family - on site indoor swimming pool, gym, tennis courts, trampoline, play ground, pool table, table tennis etc etc, plenty to keep the kids entertained! Set beside a lake in a beautiful part of Northumberland - quiet village location with lots of local walks. The cottage is about a 25 minute drive from Alnwick and a further 10 minutes to the beach. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage to friends and we’ll no doubt be back ourselves. The owner responded promptly to queries and couldn’t have been more helpful, booking was very straight forward.
We can’t fault our stay! Everything was perfect; the cottage, leisure facilities, location and even the welcome basket was a lovely touch.
We will be rebooking soon!
Stayed hear for Two nights to celebrate a friends birthday, had a fantastic time, cottage was very clean, comfortable beds, lovely living area, the whole place is really nice, we loved to pool and jacuzzi, and went for a walk down the lake, would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet relaxing few days away,
I have just returned from spending two nights at Cozy Retreats Honeymug Cottage at Powburn.
The cottage was booked for 6 ppl and we went there for a girly suprise weekend for my lovely friend's 50th Birthday.
When we arrived and opened the front door we seen two twin rooms a bathroom and a double bedroom with en suite,all of which were decorated to the highest quality.All of us had smiles on our faces and i knew instantly i had booked the right place for us.
We proceeded upstairs to the living room where we all thought it had the WOW Factor,it was very spacious with two comfy setees two comfy chairs a log fire, television, dvd player and cd player and plenty of books and games.The kitchen was well equiped with a fridge and freezer dishwasher oven, hob,microwave and every kind of cutlery you can think of.
There was a welcome basket on the big table in the kitchen which was every much appreciated and added that extra touch.
We all went to the lovely heated swimming pool, jaccuzzi,sauna and steam room where it was relaxing,invigorating and we had great fun, again all of the highest quality.
We also spent time at the lake and had a great time.
The little added touches at Honeymug Cottage made this a fantastic place to stay.
I would love to come back and stay here again.
Thankyou Mr and Mrs Rook for a fantastic stay.
Kind Regards Mrs C White
It was dark when we arrived so had A bit of A struggle finding the entrance to Honeymug, but once we found it we had a lovely warm welcome. A lovely basket of essentials with homemade marmalade and musili. We'd shopped before we arrived but could have managed fine for breakfast the next day with what was provided.
We tried to make the most of the facilities on sight and really enjoyed using the pool, gym and games room.
Great for families or a catch up with friends. We only wish we'd had more time to get involved in the outdoor activities. We'd love to come back in the summer for longer. Plenty on sight and surrounding areas to keep you busy for up to a full week.
We arrived late and in the dark, but the house is so inviting and comfortable, we settled in immediately.
The facilities are brilliant, our children (12, 13 and 16) all loved the swimming, trampoline and games room.
There are walks directly from the house, so, we didn’t use the car much at all. It’s a very relaxing place to stay.
The house was lovely and clean, beds comfortable and the fire made for a lovely atmosphere.
I would definitely recommend and would come back ourselves.
We really enjoyed our stay at Honeymug. The toiletries were lovely, the beds comfy and the log burner in the evenings very cosy. The girls enjoyed the pool and the facilities on site were a bonus. We felt relaxed and refreshed at the end of it.
