This cottage ticked all our boxes: Cosy and comfortable, with log burner Nearby pubs Easy to get to Northumberland sites and attractions The cottage was well equipped, although we could have done with some kindling to get the stove going on the first night but easily got hold of some from the local shop the next day. The kitchen had enough space and equipment to cook a roast! The bed was comfy (perhaps a little too comfy!). I think the only downside was the bathroom, which was mighty cold! The underfloor heating was not apparent and stuck on the back of the cottage it didn't get any heat from the stove / heaters. It did soon warm up from the convector heater, just a bit of an initial cold shock in the mornings. We visited a huge number of sites within 30-45 mins of this location: Cragside, Alnwick Gardens, Craster and Dunstanburgh Castle, Bamburgh and did a local walk ending at one of the pubs. This was ideal for what we wanted. Thank you.

It's a lovely, light, very comfy and cosy cottage with a well equipped kitchen. There was so much to see and do in the area, a lovely sunset walk down the lane and entertaining chickens next door. We had a great time, thank you.

A fantastic cottage in a great location. The property is close enough to the main roads to make it a perfect base to explore the area and yet still be rural enough to be a peaceful place to relax in the evening. The property itself is very comfortable and well appointed with ample roadside parking. I would have no hesitation about recommending this property to anyone and may well return at some point in the future.

We loved it and would recommend it without hesitation. The layout of the cottage was very well planned and every inch of space made use of, it was lovely to be able to cook, chat and watch TV together. It was also lovely to see so many local prints on the walls, it made it all feel very relevant to our stay.

We liked the closeness to all the tourist attractions, Alnwick Gardens is only 10 miles away and Cragside even closer. Good bus service to Newcastle. Very friendly and helpful owners, especially when we had such adverse weather conditions.

The cottage was lovely and welcoming. The owners had left us some lovely welcoming gifts which made our first nights stay all the more special. They were very thoughtful and much appreciated.

The location of the cottage was peaceful and at the same time ideal for accessing local pubs and shops with good food and local walks as well as attractions all close by. The open plan living-dining area is well designed and furnished. The main bed room is beautifully furnished and has a comfortable king sized bed. The hosts were there on arrival and gave us a warm welcome with a bottle of wine, flowers and biscuits as well as a tour of the house. We have had a fantastic holiday overall.

Lovely cottage and great location for the coast, countryside, Hadrians' Wall, Alnwick and Cragside. The only drawback was we could not use the open fire for the first 5 days of our winter break. Apart from that it is a nicely furnished, clean and very comfortable accommodation.

Had a really lovely week in this beautiful cottage, really friendly, helpful owners but not at all intrusive. It is in a really convenient location to get anywhere in the area, we enjoyed time in Seahouses, Almouth, Craster and even a day in Berwick upon Tweed. Even though the weather was cold (well you can't really expect anything else in January!) we managed to do lots of walking and and if the weather did get bad there was plenty of shopping to be done in alnwick - spent far to much money in Barter Books. On the whole a lovely holiday, in naturally glorious surroundings. Would have thought the cottage was a little small for a family with more than one child, but it suited us well.

We had a really good stay - despite the weather! It was interesting to see flood water running past the back door. Thank goodness it never made it into the cottage. For a couple this cottage was ideal. Comfortable, clean, well appointed, close to just about everything of interest, especially Cragside and alnwick castle and with very helpful and friendly owners. One slight negative was the small shower over the bath - not much room for a strapping Scotsman! Would recommend this to any couple.

Owners seemed friendly, but messy in parts and broken items. Garden unuseable couldn't see the BBQ. Ok if you dont mind cooking in the living room with no ventilation. Location good for visiting sight so Northumberland however.
