A little piece of magic
Spent a long weekend here, on turning into the cottages it felt positively magical. Plenty of parking space, lovely clean, welcoming house, fenced in garden so safe for dogs and children. Lovely welcoming pack, appreciated after a 4 hour drive. The owners are friendly and lovely people. You have to take glass rubbish away with you as no bin facilities for glass but this is not their fault. The allanton Inn is not dog friendly

Spotless cottage. Everything you need plus extra. Spacious. Dog friendly. Perfect base for exploring Northumberland and Scottish Borders. WiFi/ internet connection hit and miss. But was so nice to take a break from technology. Although my 12 year old didn't think so lol. She had to talk to us. Great family holiday. Will definitely recommend.

Poor cleaning standards with mice included.
Booked to stay for one week. Found mouse droppings under the kitchen sink on our arrival so placed a trap as my wife does not like mice. Caught our first mouse Saturday evening ! Sunday evening a second mouse ran across the living room floor, so we left. Returned on Monday to collect our possessions and discuss the situation with the owner. The owner told me that she thought it was reasonable to have mice in a country cottage and that I should have told her at the time of booking that my wife was afraid of mice and she would have declined my booking. Her husband told me they use electronic devices to repel mice in their own home but not the holiday cottages. Holiday ruined!

We wanted to 'get away from it all' and this cottage was great. It is set in woodland, but with good access to all the major visitor areas. This has been a very relaxed and enjoyable holiday.

Warm welcome and beautiful setting made for a wonderful stay
Exceptional Value for Money. Whilst not the swankiest of pads, the cottage is scrupiously clean and very well equipped, set in beautiful grounds with lots of wildlife. There is also space for two cars for each of the cottages, which is great if you are meeting up with friends or family. We got the warmest of welcomes from our host, Liz, who even left us a chocolate cake - despite this being only a three night booking. We had our jack russell dog with us, so it was also really handy to have a fenced-in patio area so I didn't have to worry about him reducing the abundance of wildlife. Liz sent us great directions and was on-hand to answer any questions we might have. Our first time to Coldingham Bay, which is only a short drive away - recommended by Liz; one very much appreciated as it was amazing with rockpools, a lovely sandy beach, free parking and fab walks. Would highly recommend a stay at this property.
