Previous visitors' comments about Marmion Cottage:
Well converted cottage, thoughtfully furnished and very comfortable. Good walking and lots to do on the East coast.
Mrs Hembury, Alresford, August 2012
The location was very good - a quiet village with excellent local shops. We loved the proximity to beautiful beaches, the river, nearby hills and pleasant towns. Wonderful scenery and pleasantly uncongested roads.
Mr Bullock, Bridgwater, July 2012
This was a pretty, characterful cottage in a good location for exploring the Northumberland coast and the borders. I appreciated the privacy and the tranquillity - being on the outskirts of a village it was also handy for shops & pubs.
Mrs Mooney, Leeds, June 2012
There is lots of space in the cottage and nicely located between the Scottish and Northumberland Heritage Coast. Norham is a pleasant village and has its own castle. The fires had been made up for us but the cottage was so cosy we didn't light them. The owner left us to it but was available if we needed.
