    • “Only a few hundred yards from the a1 but quiet. The cottage was comfortable and well kept and ideal for us to spend a quiet time after days out. Everything was in good order and much information on local area. It was nice to relax on the comfortable sofa or chair aqnd you could sit out in the garden in the "sunshine" (yes we did).”

    • “Well kept, clean cottage with all home comforts. We found the cottage to be ideally placed for us with easy access to coastal bus services on the A1.”

    • “Our sunny week in Apple Tree Cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had stayed in this cottage a few years before. We noticed that the cottage had different owners (as the guest book did not go back beyond 18 months, so our previous review was not in the book). The cottage was comfortable, but not so welcoming as previously (I believe on arrival we had a welcome bowl of fruit, milk and bread previously). The garden was overgrown, whereas before it had been well looked after, and when we contacted the owners about a small issue (recycling food) they seemed annoyed that we had called. Despite this, we had a lovely stay and I would recommend this cottage as a good base for exploring the Northumberland coast.”

    • “The cottage was attractive and situated for easy access to Lindisfarne and other attractions in the area. It was well appointed with everything provided to give us a comfortable holiday.”

    • “peace & quiet”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The property was found on an efficient and easy to use website. On arrival we found the cottage tucked away in a quiet villge yet just off the A1. This gave a quiet stay but within reach of lots of local places to visit. The cottage is old but well updated and modernised with lots of equipment and also helpful literature about local amenities. Nearby Berwick-on-Tweed is an interesting town where you can easily spend a whole day in museums in shops and in walking and seeing the riverside scenery. Holy Island is atmospheric but you need to time your visit carefully beause of the tides. The coast is easy to drive along and the scenery with its castles every now and again is often spectacular. The only difficult aspect of the cottage was car parking - not much space and if it rains a quick run to the car is needed. Otherwise the peace and quiet was welcome.”

    • “Location of cottage is very good for seeing many of the coastal sights in Northumberland.”

    Mrs Tyrrell, Bury St. Edmunds, September 2014

    • “The cottage is an ideal base to explore the area being so close to the A1 not that you could hear the traffic. We had a long weekend at the cottage and visited Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island and Berwick upon Tweed. Having barely scratched the the surface we will be back for week next time. We instantly felt at home in the the cottage and particularly enjoyed the garden.”

About the location


Holy Island 5 miles; Berwick upon Tweed 9 miles.

A pretty little village, just 3 miles from the coast and ideally situated for those wanting to explore the whole of Northumberland. Within easy reach of the A1, Fenwick has good access to all of the area's attractions - wonderful beaches, historic castles, not to mention Holy Island just 5 miles away. Those who enjoy the great outdoors will be delighted with the cycle route that runs through Fenwick and there are many local spots which are renowned for birdwatching. Walkers will enjoy St. Cuthbert’s way, which passes through the village, and of course the many outstanding coastal walks nearby. A superb touring base.
