About Mrs Ros Reay

My husband has lived at Elwick all of his life & when we got married in 1970 we set up home here. We have three daughters, all married now, but the oldest one, her husband & their two boys now run the farm. They moved into our house but we still live on the farm. We have been involved with holiday cottages for thirty years now & thoroughly enjoy meeting visitors who have now become friends & new ones who we hope will. As we live 'on the spot' we are available to answer questions or sort any problems that anyone may have.

Mrs Ros Reay purchased this cottage in 1949

Why Mrs Ros Reay chose Northumberland

Our cottages were all used as farm workers homes & have gradually been changed over the years as they have been vacated. We live in a beautiful peaceful part of the world & consider ourselves very lucky. When we return from a holiday we always say 'well, our coastline is beautiful here too'. The population here is small & the roads not nearly as busy as further south, so getting around is not a problem.

What makes this cottage unique

We are very convenient for the A1, the coast, the hills & the Scottish Borders. In half an hour one can be some distance away.The train can have you into Edinburgh from Berwick-upon-Tweed in 40 mins.

Newcastle is an hour's drive away & has many museums, multiplex cinemas, shops & restaurants.

Lovely setting, great Northumberland base

  • 4 of 5

Elwick farm was a great base for exploring all that Northumberland has to offer. The setting is beautiful, with only a short walk across the fields to the nearest bracket and lambs at the end of the garden. The cottage itself was lovely with everything that we needed for our stay. The owner was very welcoming - we particularly enjoyed the delicious lemon cake in arrival.
