    "It was very handy for accessing coastal walks and also the Cheviots. It was just off the A1 but very quiet with outstanding views to Bamburgh and the coast. Sunrises, great skies and rich birdsong - an artist's dream! The cottage was very comfortable, warm, well appointed and overall excellent. There was a lot of care given by the owners so that their customers enjoy their holiday.
