    • “Amazing cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Just returned from a fabulous week at Millenium cottage, the description doesn't do it justice. One of the upstairs double rooms has a nursery room attached which was perfect. All the rooms are very spacious and airy. We loved the outdoor space,, it was so much more than we expected. Loved watching the rabbits in the field at the back. Brilliant location, Tranquill where you are but only a few miles to fantastic beaches, attractions and shops.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The hosts were very welcoming and a lovely welcome hamper with goodies. The hoe was spacious and nicely decorated throughout. Inside was suitable for person in wheelchair to get around- however steps up to property. downstair bathroom with shower (not level access)wonderful patio doors on to the decking area at the back of the house overlooking out onto the fields and garden. Lovely kitchen / dining area. Upstairs rooms spacious and again well presented. Downside was the mattresses in the rooms apart from main bedroom were not of good quality. The gardens and games area were a big bonus. Local pub food not great. Good location for exploring surrounding area and nice to come back to a warm house. Had a great time and would go back again.”

    Mr Dower, Boston, February 2015

    • “Excellent property and does what it says on the tin! Very well equipped and the welcome hamper a nice little extra touch. We stayed early November to visit family in Berwick so didn't make full use of the garden which looked lovely and excellent for young children to run around in safely. We stayed as a couple of just two ( we like space in and around us) and found the cottage to be all that we could ask for. Will definitely stay again next time we are visiting up north.”

    Mrs Lawes, Baston, November 2014

    • “Excellent location for exploring Northumberland. The property was fantastic and in a nice quite area but close enough to plenty of amenities. Overall made for a great holiday.”

    Mr Gregson, Boat Of Garten, October 2014

    • “We are a group of 7 ladies who enjoy walking. The cottage was perfect for our requirements. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent and the decked area in the garden with table and chairs provided an ideal place to relax with a drink after a day's walk.”
