We had a really good stay - despite the weather! It was interesting to see flood water running past the back door. Thank goodness it never made it into the cottage. For a couple this cottage was ideal. Comfortable, clean, well appointed, close to just about everything of interest, especially Cragside and alnwick castle and with very helpful and friendly owners. One slight negative was the small shower over the bath - not much room for a strapping Scotsman! Would recommend this to any couple.

Owners seemed friendly, but messy in parts and broken items. Garden unuseable couldn't see the BBQ. Ok if you dont mind cooking in the living room with no ventilation.
Location good for visiting sight so Northumberland however.

Had a really lovely week in this beautiful cottage, really friendly, helpful owners but not at all intrusive. It is in a really convenient location to get anywhere in the area, we enjoyed time in Seahouses, Almouth, Craster and even a day in Berwick upon Tweed.
Even though the weather was cold (well you can't really expect anything else in January!) we managed to do lots of walking and and if the weather did get bad there was plenty of shopping to be done in alnwick - spent far to much money in Barter Books.
On the whole a lovely holiday, in naturally glorious surroundings. Would have thought the cottage was a little small for a family with more than one child, but it suited us well.

Lovely cottage and great location for the coast, countryside, Hadrians' Wall, Alnwick and Cragside. The only drawback was we could not use the open fire for the first 5 days of our winter break. Apart from that it is a nicely furnished, clean and very comfortable accommodation.
