Absolutely First Class

Absolutely Spot On !

Myself, my partner & 11 year old son spent 4 lovely nights at Puddleduck. The location was perfect and the cottage was just fabulous, a true home from home, Janet & Neil have literally thought of everything. Upon arrival there was a lovely welcome basket of wine, juice & cookies with a pint of milk in the fridge - the kitchen was well stocked with anything you could possibly need. There are 2 great Italian restaurants within 5 min walk, to the bottom of the street, 1 left and 1 right. Alnwick Castle & Gardens well worth a visit as is Holy Island, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Alnmouth....the list is endless.

Would we recommend Puddleduck........definitely!

Would we return to Puddleduck.......most certainly!

Thank you Janet & Neil, we had an amazing break xx

Pretty, well-appointed cottage in great location.

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed cottage with everything needed for a lovely stay in this beautiful area. We didn't expect to need to use the wood burner in June but a cold and wet day was much improved by snuggling in front of the fire.

Adorable cottage in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Puddleduck cottage is an ideal base for exploring Northumberland with it being located in close proximity to the coast and countryside. Cosy and comfortable, it truly is a home from home. Upon arrival you are greeted with a lovely welcome pack and with the cottage being equipped with everything you could possibly need (kitchen equipment, bedding, towels and household appliances) you can literally just turn up. The owners (Neil and Janet) are a pleasure to deal with, very efficient and friendly. We would definitely recommend Puddleduck cottage and will be back very soon!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at PuddleDuck Cottage . It is very comfortable and welcoming and very centrally situated for the town.

Car parking was easy a couple of minutes up the road . We were able to enjoy the Alnwick Food Market and stocked up on several items including a spacial Xmas Pudding.

We visited a lot of lovely sights in Northumberland including Alnmouth ,Amble, Craster and many more . We also enjoyed delightful weather .

If we re visit Alnwick we will stay in your lovely cottage.
