The Scottish Borders are within easy reach, as is the lively cosmopolitan city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

This is a very nice house for a family holiday. The accommodation is very good with plenty of room and entertainment for children, including an excellent games room with table football, pool table and interactive video games. The location is superb as it is perfectly sited for a host of holiday and tourist attractions, whatever the weather.

The house was perfect for a 4 generation family holiday. In a perfect setting, in the countryside but very close to the beautiful Embleton Bay. Highlights included sitting on the deck watching the owls hunt at dusk and watching the rabbits play in the field.

The cottage was amazing. As an added, very welcome bonus, the main bedroom had a nursery attached which was perfect for our toddler. The gardens were amazing and this was the best cottage we have stayed at.

A great base to explore the Northumberland area. Millennium Cottage is spacious and well equipped with particular attention to detail to ensure a very successful holiday home. The accommodation suits all ages but is particularly suitable for children with its large garden, playroom and additional lounge. The information pack is comprehensive and up-to-date. The owner is easily contacted and particularly helpful.

Mrs Lawes

Excellent property and does what it says on the tin! Very well equipped and the welcome hamper a nice little extra touch. We stayed early November to visit family in Berwick so didn't make full use of the garden which looked lovely and excellent for young children to run around in safely. We stayed as a couple of just two ( we like space in and around us) and found the cottage to be all that we could ask for. Will definitely stay again next time we are visiting up north.
Mr Gregson

Just loved everything about the house, we spent a family holiday there and it provided everything we wanted. In a good location for visiting the surrounding area, the beaches, castles and lovely countryside. It was fun to make our own entertainment in the evening and the games provided made it very competitive. The house had lots of space, would well recommend it and would stay there again.

We are a group of 7 ladies who enjoy walking. The cottage was perfect for our requirements. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent and the decked area in the garden with table and chairs provided an ideal place to relax with a drink after a day's walk.
Mr Chappell

A nice space for a family gathering and the cottage location meant not too much travelling to get to our favourite places. The children enjoyed the trampoline, garden space and pool table. The owner called to check everything was ok and they left linen for our second week. We hope to return to the property next year.
Mrs Elliott

Excellent location for coast and inland, a beautiful area with many attractions to visit. A spacious, well priced cottage. The teenage grandsons appreciated good WiFi connection, outside space and games room. Enjoyed sitting on the decking area in evening sunshine and made use of BBQ. The generous welcome pack was a thoughtful bonus. A choice of supermarkets nearby and the village shop was adequate for basics. The Cottage was very well equipped and clean.

Just returned from a fabulous week at Millenium cottage, the description doesn't do it justice. One of the upstairs double rooms has a nursery room attached which was perfect. All the rooms are very spacious and airy. We loved the outdoor space,, it was so much more than we expected. Loved watching the rabbits in the field at the back. Brilliant location, Tranquill where you are but only a few miles to fantastic beaches, attractions and shops.
August 2014
Enjoyed a wonderful holiday this well equipped and spotless cottage with a mixed party. The accommodations flexibility for use by couples and singles was ideal. A car is definitely required to get to the coast unless committed walkers! I hope to visit again in 2015
July 2013
The hosts were very welcoming and a lovely welcome hamper with goodies. The hoe was spacious and nicely decorated throughout. Inside was suitable for person in wheelchair to get around- however steps up to property. downstair bathroom with shower (not level access)wonderful patio doors on to the decking area at the back of the house overlooking out onto the fields and garden. Lovely kitchen / dining area. Upstairs rooms spacious and again well presented. Downside was the mattresses in the rooms apart from main bedroom were not of good quality. The gardens and games area were a big bonus. Local pub food not great. Good location for exploring surrounding area and nice to come back to a warm house. Had a great time and would go back again.

We really enjoyed our holiday at Millennium cottage. The home was spacious, great for a big family, with a good games room and piano room for the children and a nice decking area to sit out on during the summer evenings.
