Well equipped relaxing accommodation
Family break to Alnwick . Property at the top of a fairly steep hill. On street parking not necessarily at the door but we had 2 cars and always managed to get parked, House has a very homely feel and lives up to its name of being Cosy . Decor in keeping with the property. Kitchen is well equipped and although compact it has the feel of a family kitchen and opens onto the small patio area . Instruction manuals for all appliances kept in folder in kitchen.
Rooms on middle floor spacious. I would advise travellers that access to upper rooms not suitable for elderly adults or people with mobility issues.
There were board games and Dvds available in the living room.
Great visits to the Castle, Gardens,and Bamburgh beach. Found the Black Swan great for food and service.
Cosy Nook is one of the very few holiday rentals which has been left with its original character in furnishing and arrangements. The furniture is attractive, comfortable and of an appropriate character for the age of the house, and the kitchen is lavishly provided with equipment, even down to high quality champagne flutes and different glasses for red and white wine. The rooms are of very generous size, and the main bedroom is tastefully furnished and decorated in matching styles.
The only thing missing in the kitchen is bizarrely that there are no casseroles for the microwave.
The house is about ten minutes maximum from the centre of the lovely little town of Alnwick.
We will certainly return.
An amazingly well fitted house, with high quality furniture and (above all) kept in character. The furniture, wallpaper, and everything else were tasteful and appropriate to the period of the house.
Cosy Nook was a very comfortable and homely property. We felt at home in the house. The location was ideal with an easy five to ten minute walk to the town. Hope it won't be too long before we get back again - we didn't want to go home as we enjoyed our time so much.
Unfriendly and unwelcoming
The house is quite spacious and quirky but the place lacks care. Good things were the location and the bedding was clean and one of the showers was quite decent, but apart from that: No information to welcome us or tell us where to put rubbish or work facilities. The heating system is EXTREMELY noisy and needs attention. Tried to contact the owner on the phone numbers but she never returned the calls. Badly needs repair and better utensils and the couple at the top of the road where we pulled up to offload have us a mouthful for parking outside their house ( the only space available on a very narrow street) will not be staying again.
