Greycroft Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Greycroft is a detached family house in the village of Christon Bank. The accommodation offers four bedrooms sleeping up to ten, two bathrooms, a kitchen with dining area and two sitting rooms. Outside is off road parking for three cars, and a rear lawned garden with furniture. Greycroft makes a very convenient and welcoming base for enjoying Alnwick, the Heritage Coastline, Scottish Borders and more.

Eight miles north of Northumberland's picturesque market town of Alnwick, likes the charming village of Christon Bank. Not only are Alnwick's beautiful castle and gardens close at hand, but visitors to the area are also only a mere two miles from the lovely bays at Embleton and Low Newton by the sea. These wonderful bays lay on a strip of unspoiled sandy beaches and are only a brief drive from the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, and the other nature-rich Farne Islands. Set in the rolling hills, this lovely little village has a traditional, real ale pub, which also serves food, but for more variety of cuisine, the neighbouring villages also host a number of excellent restaurants. The Scottish Borders are within easy reach, as is the lively cosmopolitan city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

The house was so comfortable and very well equipped. Very easy to relax in. Also well situated - close to many interesting places and some lovely beaches.

A lovely, peaceful location with excellent access to all the major sites, and the accommodation was just what we required for our family gathering.

We had a brilliant weekend at the cottage. I do not think the picture on Sykes cottages website do the house justice. There was plenty room for 9 people, and plenty of activities available. A great Christmas break, we will be back!

A lovely house situated in a very quiet location near to the coast. It was very well equipped with good quality fittings and appliances. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space, and the bedrooms were of a good size and were large enough for the beds placed in them. It was handy for local beaches, towns and attractions.

Lovely large period property, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Beds were comfortable and the whole place is decorated to a good and tasteful standard. Perfect base for a weeks holiday in Northumberland.
Miss Shepard

Lovely big house, very comfortable, superb location. We loved sitting in the garden and having the space to spread out in the two living rooms. We enjoyed the lovely big dining area in the kitchen. The beds were comfortable. The house was immaculately clean. It was a very peaceful house. We enjoyed watching the comings and goings of the sheep in the field behind the garden.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week even though the weather was awful. This house is superbly furnished to a high degree. Very well stocked kitchen with every possible utensil. Similarly well stocked with games, books and tourist information literature. House is well placed for visiting many places of interest especially the lovely beach at Embleton. All in all, a brilliant week.
