Previous visitors' comments about Shepherds Nook:
This cottage is a must to visit. Nothing seems to have been too much
trouble to make our visit pleasant. A lovely welcome gift, even a
telephone call to ask if we had arrived safely. Essentials such as
tea, coffee, milk, torches and even doggie bags were
included. The cleanliness of the property was very good. Being close
to the A1 (no road noise), enabled easy access to the lovely coastline
and inland to Coldstream, Wooler and many more places. I would
recommend this property.
Mrs Graham, Barnsley, March 2013
The owners of this cottage have clearly gone to great lengths to ensure that guests have a comfortable stay and feel welcomed. When we arrived there was milk in the fridge, tea and coffee and other essentials such as dishwasher tablets were provided. As a lovely surprise the owners had also left a thoughtful gift to greet us on our arrival. The location of the cottage is superb for exploring the beautiful coastline and picturesque nearby Alnwick. The overall cleanliness and quality of the cottage was superb and we cannot wait to come back.
