Bloomfield Cottage at Powburn provides delightful, homely accommodation. In a quiet location (our concerns about the nearby pub were totally unfounded)in a small village. As it is close to the Coast and Cheviots, it is ideal for walkers and cyclists. Our only (minor) criticism was lack of coat stand or coat hooks - fortunately, we had beautiful weather all week, but anybody needing to hang up their waterproofs would struggle ! Also, a washing machine would be of far more use than the dishwasher. Otherwise, it is very well furnished and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We would highly recommend Bloomfield Cottage to anybody wanting a pleasant and charming base from which to explore the area.
