My husband and I and our Springer Spaniel stayed at Cuthbert's Cottage for four nights. The cottage is quite charming and nicely appointed and equipped. Other than breakfast we did not cater for ourselves, choosing instead to eat out, but the kitchen appears to have everything you would need if you did want to cook. The cottage has character (converted from a school) but also nice modern furnishings. It is very light and bright. The shower room is small, but perfectly formed. The bedroom is spacious - quite steep stairs though, so don't overdo the vino! (although we managed perfectly well). The sitting room is comfortable and no doubt cosy in the winter as there is a wood burner. The owner is friendly and helpful and there if you want him (he lives next door). Whilst we were there he was making some slight alterations outside to improve the garden space - he seems keen to make things good for his visitors.
We enjoyed touring around the area - visited Berwick, Alnwick, Kelso, Wooler, Morpeth, Seahouses, Alnmouth and of course Holy Island as we were brilliantly situated for that - then we were happy to return to the cottage to relax either in the sitting room or outside on the patio. We tried the nearby Lindisfarne Inn and would recommend it, and there is also a garage with a very well stocked shop if you need it. The website did warn that the cottage is near the road and that there would be some noise, but we found there was surprisingly little noise, even with all the windows open. The most noise we experienced, which did not bother us at all, was probably the shutters being opened on the garage in the morning, but as we slept with our window wide open, this was hardly surprising.
We had a lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend this cottage.
