No 5 Murton White House Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The property is a spacious, terraced barn conversion in a lovely rural hamlet, just threemiles from the fascinating border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. The large fitted kitchen with patio doors opens on to a small paved area, allowing for al fresco dining. This great cottage is well placed between Newcastle and Edinburgh, allowing visitors to enjoy all the sights that northern England and southern Scotland have to offer, whilst the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed provides many varied activities and a wide range of local amenities.

Area
As England's most northerly town, Berwick-upon-Tweed changed hands 14 times during the war between England and Scotland over the border territories. This coastal town is now a much more peaceful setting, though retains much of its old-world charm. With narrow streets enclosed within great Elizabethan walls, the town offers excellent amenities including shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs. Walking routes take visitors round the incredible Tudor walls and provide spectacular views over the coast and river estuary. The town's Maltings Arts Centre provides an extensive programme of cultural events whilst nearby, fishing, golfing and riding facilities are all plentiful. For not-so-sunny days, the leisure centre in the town offers a pool with both a wave machine and various rides. Berwick is also well connected to Newcastle and Edinburgh by the train.

Region
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.

Amenities
Electric storage heaters with underfloor heating in all bathrooms. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV, DVD player, CD player, radio, WiFi. All fuel & power inc. in rent. Bed linen & towels inc. in rent. Cot & highchair available (if requested at booking). Off road parking for 2 cars. Enclosed garden with furniture.

Me and my family had a lovely week and we would recommend this property to our friends and family.

An excellent barn conversion in the countryside, near Berwick upon Tweed. Comfortable, well furnished, and great for a group of friends or family to explore the area.

The accommodation was excellent for our needs, especially having 2 dogs. It was a great space for 4 adults and it felt like home; we all found it very comfortable. We had an excellent time especially being able to sit in the garden when it was sunny. It is so peaceful and quiet where it is situated so you could relax and unwind - excellent!

The location of the property was ideal for the places we wanted to visit, none of them being too far to drive to.

The accommodation was excellent. It was roomy, comfortable and very nicely decorated. The location was so peaceful yet near to the A1 for easy access to the Northumbrian coast. There was lots to see in the area such as Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick Castle and Holy Island. The Farne Islands were my highlight of the week. It was a beautiful coastline and even though it was cold it did not stop us enjoying our week.

The overall aspect was beyond expectations. Proximity to all major tourist attractions was so easy. Really enjoyed everything about the holiday.

We had a great holiday in a great location. This is the 2nd time we've holidayed in the area and both have been in Sykes cottages and they have been tremendous holidays. The cottage is so handy for everything, even Edinburgh, where we went by train from Berwick. There's so much do do for all the family. 'The Plough' pub towards Duddo is excellent too. After 2 holidays, we still have loads to see and do - we'll be back!

The cottage was done to such a high standard, there was not one thing that you could say you didn't have, it was amazing.

Lovely setting in the country side but close enough to Berwick to be very easily accessible. Bright rooms, comfortable beds and clean bathrooms finished to a high standard. Good sized and well equiped rooms. Kitchen and diner were brilliant for our sized group.

Excellent holiday all round. Great location, private cottage but within easy reach of supermarkets, shops and attractions. Ideal base for exploring the Northumbrian coast. Enclosed rear garden ideal for young children. Would recommend the beach between Bamburgh and Seahouses, although there are lots of other little beaches hidden away.

A beautifully converted steading in a great location to explore the area! A great kitchen space that the whole family used, even our tele addict daughter barely used the lounge, preferring to stay in the social kitchen area. Our dog also loved the enclosed garden and long walks down the lanes.

Lovely cottage, plenty of room for all of us to spread out. Comfortable lounge and a great family kitchen. Very good location for touring Northumberland and Edinburgh. Plenty of supermarkets nearby, lots of places to visit and great walking.

A barn conversion to a high standard, and generally very comfortable and well appointed, in a potentially excellent location in the countryside a mile or so off the A1 on the edge of Berwick. If you want to be away from it all, this is it: neither our Orange nor our Virgin phones had a signal (though our son's French phone did, via O2 apparently!). A reviewer reported the wi-fi as temperamental in 2013. It still has not been sorted out. Like a previous reviewer, our 70 year old found getting in and out of the bath & shower awkward. The beds were comfortable, but the slats on one of the twin beds creaked and squeaked at the slightest movement. There had clearly been attempts to solve the problem with paper wadding, but to no avail. The good deep mattress proved to be perfectly comfortable on the floor! The approach road and drive are Tarmac, but separated by a rather proud concrete strip. Our son's hire car, a VW Golf grounded on this every time, and it needed passengers out of the car and some careful manoeuvering to solve the problem. The grooves and paint marks on the strip showed that others had suffered. Despite these issues we had a good holiday, but it could have been better.

We had a lovely week in a beautiful cottage.. There was a few faults i.e. curtain pole hanging loose and door to patio not shutting probably but otherwise ok. Shame about the weather though. Would go again and stay in the same cottage.

Our trip did not get off to the best start as when we arrived after a 4 hour journey there was a sign for 'Tweed Cottage', however, we had booked no 5 Murton White House. The letting agent confirmed they did not have a property named Tweed Cottage but all was eventually sorted. The cottage itself is lovely, however, it quickly became clear that despite arriving well after 3pm the cottage hadn't been cleaned properly and it could only be described as a bit 'grubby'. There are a few bits and bobs about the place that could also do with minor repairs. The location of the cottage was great for visiting local attractions. We took the time to get rid of the leaflets advertising events from 2008 - 2011 that were left in the cottage so hopefully the next visitors will have a better idea of what's happening in the here and now! I'd recommend this cottage for the location and also recommend a visit at the beginning of the summer before the season really starts.

A fabulously well equipped country steading in a picture perfect setting, would recommend this holiday home to anyone looking for an escape from the world.

We stayed at No 5 on the 13th May 2013 for 3 nights; a last minute booking. The property is really lovely, bright and spacious and really close to Berwick and all the ameneties. The only thing letting this property down is the standard of cleanliess; we arrived just after 3pm on the first day and it was evident that the place hadn't been cleaned properly. There was masses of dust under the sofa in the sitting room and upstairs in the double bedroom large cobwebs were hanging from the beams. Its a shame because with a bit of elbow grease and attention to detail this property would be really beautiful. I would highly recommend the property due to its peaceful location but am sorry to say it wasn;t up to my standard of cleanliness.

This is a five bed cottage (6th bed is a roll out), developed from an old barn. Very large kitchen, well equipped with a good dining space that opens out onto the patio. Spacious lounge that also opens onto the garden space. Th two main bedrooms are a good size. The beds had nice firm mattresses. Clean, albeit there are a few cobwebs that the regular cleaners have missed! The bathroom is fine for any active person. However the nature of the shower over a high bath side, proved tricky for my 70+ in laws to negotiate. The f&f are perhaps a bit well used but ok. We found the wifi very temperamental. Overall we enjoyd our stay and would visit the cottage again. Having stayed at many other places in Northumberland, the difference between a cottage where the owners are on site ( they notice and deal with the small things) as opposed to this cottage where it appears the owners are not on site - you can see and feel the difference.

This barn conversion provides a spacious cottage in a good location with easy access to Berwick and the Borders. The interior provides good family accomodation with almost all of the mod cons anybody could need. The property was let down by a lack of attention to basic details such as cleanliness and maintenance. When we arrived we found that the fridge had not been properly cleaned. There were food particles in the bottom of the salad crispers and the oven was so dirty that oven door window was almost opaque. The curtain rail in the living room was in danger of collapsing making it vitually impossible to draw the curtains. According to the visitors book it seems that this was a long standing problem. It therefore became necessary to undertake some DIY adjustments in order to prevent the whole assembly crashing down. The living room had a small flat panel TV but no Freeview or Sky. There was also a DVD player and a separate CD player. All of these items had remotes but none of them worked. I suspect that all of the batteries were flat and had not been checked or replaced. The pictures of No 5 look great but what you don't see is that the two french doors look directly on the side elevation of a large warehouse which is perhaps only 50 yards away. In an area noted for it's panoramic landscapes the vista from the kitchen and the sitting room is the side of a warehouse. Although several aspects of No 5 Murton White House were very disappointing particularly given it's 4 star rating a significant dose of TLC could improve the customer's feel good factor enormously.
