Not fit for paying guests
This cottage needs cleaning. A deep clean. The place was filthy, thick dust and cobwebs everywhere. Dog hairs in furniture and cushions. Lack of the most basic maintenance. Freezer iced up. Light bulbs needing replacing. A leak in one of the rooms. Generally in a scruffy and uncared for condition. Mainly it was really dirty and not fit for paying guests. Disgusting!

The location of this little cottage is spot on. It allowed us to explore wonderful Northumberland, which is simply stunning. The people are friendly and welcoming and we can't wait to go back.
Mr Storey

The cottage is wonderfully located, with peace and quiet and all the facilities that one would need. The cottage is dog friendly, with a nice garden for the dog to play in.

Lovely location
Lovely little cottage in an ideal location for a quiet break or drives out. My wife and I stayed for a week with a friend in July. It has a small entrance hall, a lounge/diner/kitchen and a utility cupboard downstairs and two bedrooms and a bathroom up. There's a wood burner as well (although we didn't use it as it was the height of summer!). The garden is small (and on a slope) - but fine for the three of us and fenced well enough to keep my dog in. Reading back, that all sounds a bit underwhelming. It's not meant to. It's a reasonably priced very comfortable cottage - but the location is where it comes into its own. It's lovely. There's a 15 minute walk over some fields to get to the nearest pub, there's no noise at night (even the local sheep and chickens are sleeping) and the views are superb. It's also very central for many of Northumberland's tourist destinations - the National Trust property and Cragside (dog friendly) is a must and only 10 minutes drive away. We'd visit again (as would the dog!).

Beautiful location, fabulous views and a very comfortable cottage - really super!
