“Gem”
Reviewed March 26, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This is a home from home, warm and cozy, lovely welcome pack on arrival was well received. Water is piping hot and plenty of it if you fancy a soak in a decent sized bath. Everything is here you could possibly want, the beds are super comfy( I would quite like to take one home) or perhaps we could just move in!
Ideal location for coast and Berwick. Take a trip to the Farne Islands while you're here.

“A real treat”

This is a great place, to take a break, relax, sight see, chill out, go motoring, walking, cycling or golfing. It is accessible to all of Northumberland delights, and just off the A1, well equipped with all home comforts, (actually, even better), with use of a log fire, with a lovely modern kitchen with all the essential appliances.
Spacious bathroom and bedrooms were delightfully decorated. Both owners were fantastic, so friendly and helpful on our first visit to this part of Northumberland.
Nearby we enjoyed visits to Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick, Holy Island, Coldstream, Berwick on Tweed, and sampled great food, all reasonably priced, in many pubs and restaurants and cafes close by, suggested by the owners. A real retreat in the countryside, yet near to Northumberland historic sites, beaches and market towns. Even when the weather really not too kind we enjoyed time inside, reading, relaxing in the comforts of this lovely place.

“YES. WE WILL BE BACK ! 10/10”

Sometimes when you leave a review you KNOW that it may give you a problem when you want to go back to that property, as your review may just be the one that makes a 'searcher' book the week you are after....well,I hope it does as the owners and property ARE a delight, and we would move our week away just to make sure this property is free...yes, seriously. !

Everything about the property booked was excellent. From the porch ( for muddy shoes) to the front room with open fire, to the big kitchen...it was exactly as we had hoped for. We cannot think of anything that needed doing, replacing or changing about our 'home' for the week. It was of the highest maintenance, very very clean, warm, and a delight to use as a base for the week. Enough cutlery, pots, pans, plates, WINE GLASSES, beer glasses ( you know...the important stuff !!) and bedding...board games..books to read, maps of the area....a welcome basket AND small milk in the fridge......two showers and toilets, with everything in good working order...it really was just like being at home. Will we go back....OH YES !!!
The owners were superb in all communication, and helped make our new baby's first ever holiday ....EASY !

“Lovely cottage in a lovely area”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If I had one wish it would be that we could have moved this cottage just a couple of miles nearer the coast. Despite looking at maps before we booked, we misjudged it and it is about 5 miles inland.

That said, it's only about 15/20mins to Bamburgh and Holy Island, so still a nice base point. A lot of the attractions feel a bit far away - Alnwick, Dunstanburgh etc - but I think that given how Northumberland is, where ever you stay there will be something that feels like it's a bit of a drive :)

That's probably the only thing I could even remotely class as a downside to this cottage, and that is clutching at straws.

It was lovely and clean. The Aga heating meant it was cosy and warm (which you would hope you wouldn't need in August, but we did!). The rooms were great sizes, and our youngest (10) loved having the loft room to himself.

Plenty of crockery and cutlery in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, and the little shelf of tipples was a lovely touch, even though we didn't have any (A great range of spirits, and a little honesty box to put a bit of cash in if you have any - fab idea!).

I was on standby for a few work related things while we were staying there, so the WiFi/Broadband was a welcome addition. Ever so slightly slower than at home, but perfect for being able to check email and book tickets for castles!

It's a terraced property, and we did hear the odd noise (dog barking etc) from one side, but never enough to be a disturbance.

Would definitely recommend this cottage if you're heading up that way.
