Beautiful, well equipped Cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated and well appointed cottage in the middle of a picturesque village. The cottage is tastefully decorated with a new kitchen and wet room with underfloor heating. The living room is huge and boasts a warming log burner set in an inglenook fireplace.

In terms of location all of the main attractions in Northumberland are a stones throw away but the village is set away from the hustle and bustle. 5 mins to Alnwick and Craster and a little further to Low Newton. Even Seahouses and Bamburgh are less than a 20 min drive.

The cottage is a great find and didn't fail to impress.

Owner's Response: Thank you Matthew for your lovely review.When renovating the cottage we wanted to retain some of the traditional features, but also wanted guests to benefit from modern day comforts such as underfloor heating, so pleased to hear you found it cosy. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and managed to see some of the best that the county has to offer. Thanks again for taking the time to write your review- it's really appreciated. Tony and Angela

Fabulous cottage. Cosy and very comfortable. Everything you needed was there including extras of flowers and wine! Ideal base for exploring Northumberland. A really big 'thank you" to Tony and Angela for being so friendly and welcoming. We shall certainly plan a return visit.

Excellent cottage, beautifully equipped and designed.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is ideal for a couple and extremely comfortable. The owners have refurbished it to a high standard and it is homely, comfortable and very well maintained. Excellent location for the east coast and further afield and a great pub literally over the road. Communication with the owners prior to arrival was excellent, clear and very welcoming. We have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.

Super cottage

  • 4 of 5

Nice cottage, spotless, comfy bed, very warm and cosy in autumn/winter, kitchen very well equipped; very quiet; owner provided wine, milk and even flowers (as this was my birthday break-away); ideal for two I would say (there is only a small dining table with two chairs in the kitchen, though we just moved them to the living room); well located to all the attractions to the north and the south.

What a cracking cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a real gem! Excellent communication with Tony and Angela before and during our stay. The cottage has been furnished and equipped to an extremely high standard and was very clean and comfortable indeed. The carton of milk in the fridge and bottle of wine with glasses left ready by the fire were a lovely touch and much appreciated. All the bedding and towels etc were of a very high quality. There is a large fridge/freezer, washing machine, toaster and all the equipment you would need to make a slap up meal, including a cafetiere for that very important cup of coffee!

We had a busy 3 days and visited Alnmouth, Boulmer, Craster, Beadnell, Newton by the Sea, Seahouses, Dunstanburgh Castle, Bamburgh Castle, Lindisfarne Castle, Holy Island and Warkworth Castle (which was our favourite!) There are so many places to visit that we ran out of time for Alnwick so will definitely come back again.

Unfortunately our experience with the pub across the road was not so good as that of others. We arrived on a Tuesday and took a walk over to check the menu late afternoon (the pub is closed all day Monday which we knew about) but when we went back at 7pm for dinner there was a sign stating that no food was being served Tuesday or Wednesday which meant going back to the cottage to try to rustle up a quick dinner. So on Thursday which was our last night we tried again and food was being served. The welcome was nothing special and the food very disappointing and certainly not the large portions mentioned in other reviews so we would probably not revist the pub another time which is a shame given its excellent location. However we would definitely recommend Dirty Bottles Smokehouse in Alnwick - what a find! Excellent varied menu, excellent food, huge portions, good choice of ales, very good value for money and a very warm welcome. At the end of our meal the staff stopped to chat and recommended places for us to visit. We cannot wait to return!

We would not hesitate to come back to this delightful cottage. We have already recommended it to all our friends. Thankyou Tony and Angela for letting us stay in your wonderful home.
