the property was very spacious and well equipped. The furnishings were in good order and the kitchen was great.
However, we had trouble with the underfloor heating in 2 of the bathrooms - it didn't work and it being winter the bathrooms were very cold. There wasn't enough locker/drawer room either, we had to keep our clothes in our suitcase the whole time we were there.
There was also a problem with the smell of damp in the master bedroom bathroom and in the wardrobe - we couldn't hang our clothes in there as they took the smell of damp.

A fabulously situated cottage allowing peace and relaxation with views over the countryside but only a few minutes drive from shops and attractions.
A lovely area to explore with things to do for all ages.
The accommodation had lots of room and was very comfortable. Would of been nice to have a second shower and an outside washing line but all in all very well equipped and decorated.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definately be returning to Northumberland in the future

The cottage was clean and well provided for regarding pots and pans. It provided flexible living accommodation and was very handy for the main road network to enable you to travel to different locations.
Beautiful Berwick cottage

This converted farm building has been renovated to a high standard. The furnishings were beautiful. We could have moved into the house. A car is needed to get to the local shops or pub and Berwick Upon Tweed is within a 15 minute drive. We were very impressed and would like to return one day.
good.. but could be better

property was difficult to find, lounge was upstairs no problem but! to have a cup of tea meant a 15 stair climb and was risky with hot tea when elderly.Bathroom could do with tiling being finished as this can be the first entry point for furry visitors from out side .,surrounded on three
sides by industrial units,storage heaters were very
erratic..so house was cold on arrival and didn,t seem to maintain a constant temp... arrived late afternoon to find not even a tablet of soap or a toilet roll,..and no local shops at the price not
acceptable..all could so easily be corrected..location was ideal to tour berwick alnwick coast etc
Lovely apartment in beautiful location
