Loved Gardner's Cottage. Went with husband and Luna the dog. Small enclosed patio with bbq was a great place to sit in the evenings. Little patch of woodland over fence for Luna to run. Nice and roomy cottage which is well equipped. Steps up to front door. There are now two bathrooms. Bit of a drive for shops (Tesco near Berwick). Nice pub with food in village. Owners friendly and helpful. It is on the site of their art studio, which had an open weekend while we were there, so there were people walking around, but only until 4pm. Had to stand in garden for phone reception. Beautiful garden, and situation. Well recommended and would go again.

An excellent very comfortable cottage with all the facilities needed for a quiet get away from it all holiday,great walks and for an evening out for great food you must visit the nearby allanton inn.Our hosts were helpful without being intrusive. It may be off the beaten track but our sat nav found it no problem . All in all a very relaxing time which is what we wanted ,already thinking of going back
Value for money

Potentially this is a good cottage. It's in a tranquil location but handy for touring the local area. It is a warm little cottage when the heaters are on but the hot water system needs reworking because it is lacking.The kitchen is quite well equipped but there aren't many mugs but the cupboards are far too high off the floor. The bed was comfy despite being 2 joined together. Loved the ensuite. Would go there again.

Gardeners Cottage is surrounded by country lanes but civilisation if you want it is not far away.The cottage itself is in need of a makeover as its starting to look a bit tired around the edges and if this were done the cost would go up,as prices are reasonable now.
The owners who lived in the ground s didnt bother you and just gave you the key on arrival .I feel a bit more effort could have been made with the presentation of the place as I said Id have a word with the cleaner who has nt cleaned in the corners for a few weeks!
On the whole if you want somewhere to lay your head for the week near to Holy island its cheap and cheerfull.
