We stayed at the house in Belford for November half term with our 2 children and had a fantastic time. The house was so warm and welcoming - we couldn't resist lighting the fire in the 'snug' every night for some quiet tv-free time.
There is everything you need in the house and with 3 pubs, a Co-op and a fish and chip shop all within a minutes walk, there wasn't any need to go to a big supermarket.
Ali, the owner, was really friendly and nothing was too much bother. The location of the house is superb, with Bamburgh only 10 minutes drive away, plus Lindisfarne, Alnick castle and others such as Chillingham all within half an hour. We didn't have time to go (so much to do and see!) but you could easily go to Edinburgh for the day.
The house is very clean and lovely and colourful - a nice change from the usual magnolia minimalist rental houses you can get. The bath is amazing with lots of hot water - light a few candles and it doesn't get much better!
We'll definitely be back to this house to do some more exploring.
“characterful and comfortable - a really excellent place to stay.”

This cottage is spacious and cosy. All the rooms have a lot of character which makes them really attractive to be in. The kitchen was well supplied with cooking utensils and the courtyard garden was really attractive to sit in. Being in the centre of the village was really convenient and not at all noisy.
We will definitely go here again if we are on holiday in this area.
Alison was friendly and very easy to contact at all times.
