Lovely cottage in a lovely area
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.

We were astounded at how good the property was and the extremely friendly welcome. It was our first time of exploring Northumberland and we were amazed at how much there was to see within a 20-30 mile radius. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone wishing to holiday in the area.

This is a brilliant property to stay in and convenient for all the places we visited. There are so many things to see and do in Northumbria; we will definitely have to visit the area again. Even on the one really wet day we had there were options and the wood burner in the lounge meant a cosy warm evening afterwards.

Beautiful cottage which was extremely comfortable with everything we needed. The location was ideal, giving access to beautiful coast and countryside. We received a lovely welcome from the owners.
