The cottage was of a very high standard, comfortable, warm and well equipped. There was a welcome hamper awaiting us, which was a lovely surprise! The cottage was well situated and close to Bamburgh's lovely beach, and other attactions along the Northumbrian coast.

The cottage was very easy to find from the travel details and booking was very easy.
The house was very comfortable with everything you needed in the very well stocked kitchen. The lounge was very comfortable and the adition of a telescope in the bedroom was excellent.
It is set in a very quiet area with a great view over-looking Bamburgh Castle. The garden was filled with bird feeders and many an hour was spent watching the Greater Spotted Woodpeckers feeding.
Everything was excellent and would be a wonderful base for anyone who liked to watch birds in a wonderful garden.

The cottage was very conveniently situated to the main route through Northumberland and yet was just off the beaten track and so peaceful.
There were fantastic views over open countryside to Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands.
The cottage was very clean and comfortable and well equipped with everything you could possibly need including bathrobes and binoculars!
The front garden was as good as a bird sanctuary with numerous birds visiting the bird feeders. The back garden had a lovely view up to the woodland and had a barbecue provdided.
We will be trying to book for 2010 as we just did not have time to visit all the places in Northumberland in just one week - there is so much choice - excellent beaches, amazing castles, etc.
I cannot think of anything to say against the cottage in Belford - it was fabulous.
