About Debbie Thompson

Paul and I live in Leeds with our golden retriever, and have a busy life with work, family and running a holiday cottage. We visit as regularly as possible as the cottage has a lovely homely feel with a delightful garden which we enjoy pottering and relaxing in. We're happy to discuss any questions you may have if you are considering a break on 07947 789217 or 0113 4732789.

Debbie Thompson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Debbie Thompson chose Glanton

We had a couple of holidays in Northumberland several years ago and decided we would love to be able to own a cottage. We felt so lucky when this property came on the market and knew it was just what we were looking for, despite the pouring rain when we viewed it. It's perfectly placed to visit all the lovely gardens,castles,coast and villages Northumberland has to offer, and yet is situated in the beautiful countryside in a small peaceful hamlet so it's the perfect place for a break away from everyday life.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a spacious 1 bedroom cottage which is tucked away, offering a real sense of peace and tranquility and has a lovely very private south facing garden which is a real sun trap in summer. Winter breaks allow for cosy nights in front of the fire after walks in the countryside or on the wonderful beaches.

Amazing hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the 2017 Christmas period for 9 Nights in this delightful 1 bed cottage with our Bichon Rufus, when we arrived we were very happy to see that Paul and Debbie had gone to the effort of putting up a lovely real Christmas tree which made the whole place feel festive , they had also pre prepared the wood burner so all that was required was a match to get it started which was very welcome as it was about 2 degrees when we arrived.

Our hosts had also left a luxury welcome pack which contained, bottle of beer, red wine, butter, cheese, tea, coffee, museli, Christmas biscuits, milk, (think that's it) Oh some Quality street ;-)

The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and very spacious for a 1 bed with tons of storage, the kingsize bed was very comfortable with views over the garden, there was lots of additional bedding, quilts and pillows so will please everybody.

Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need for a comfortable stay and a first for us was that we cooked every night and had everything we needed (maybe an extra tea towel)

Bathroom and shower worked perfectly for our needs

Lounge was well kitted out with a 3 seater sofa and an armchair , wood burner as stated with a good stock of logs and a huge telly with hdmi connections so i could connect my firestick through it , good wifi with a fairly strong signal which won't leave you wanting .

The location of this place is great as it's central so you can easily reach the coast or the national parks , we did the Seahouses to Bamburgh beach walk and back on Christmas eve and it was amazing , also visited holy island (recommend) , Berwick, Cragside at Rothbury (amazing walking in the grounds), Alnwick, (great selection of shops and supermarkets )

All in all this was our first time in Northumberland and has quickly become our favourite place in England so far and the stay at Paul and Debbie's gaff added to the quality of our holiday so thanks guys and we'll see you in the near future.

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is lovely and Debbie is a great host- making sure there’s plenty of wood for the fire, answering questions promptly and providing a lovely welcome pack! We really liked Glanton- it’s a small village about 15-20 mins from Alnwick and under 40 mins to Bamburgh and Seahouses etc. Great location that’s nice and peaceful.
