  • "Perfect - just perfect!"

    Fabulous cottage in a great location to explore Northumberland. It’s not often that you get a holiday cottage of this calibre. The owners have genuinely thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as they possibly can. The cottage is warm, very cosy with everything you could possibly need for your stay. We enjoyed two weeks there and can’t wait to go back. The owner (Holly) is very welcoming and goes out of her way to ensure that her guests are happy. We looked at the visitors book while we were there and there are so many repeat guests which proves what a great property this is. Thank you Holly, we had a fabulous time!

    Wow, thank you for your very kind comments, really great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us. It was a pleasure to meet you ALL and would love to see you again. Thank you for leaving the cottage clean and tidy, you could not tell there had been a dog staying, amazing. Take care Holly Property Owner

    The only problem we had with the heating was quickly sorted out for us. The cottage is in a beautiful setting but close to Alnwick for amenities. We would recommend to anyone.

    Lovely to meet you both and thank you for sharing your experience. Take care Holly Property Owner

  • "Huge apologies for the lateness of the feedback, we spent a really enjoyable few days in this lovely cottage at the end of April."

    This is the most perfect, comfortable and homely cottage we have stayed in. Holly's personal touches added immensely to its charm. The location was perfect for us, being off the beaten track, quiet and peaceful, surrounded by farmland, yet within a few minutes drive to Alnwick.Holly is a really welcoming and helpful host, yet not at all intrusive. She provided a lovely welcoming hamper, which we thoroughly enjoyed !

    Thank you for your kind comments, it’s lovely to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. Property Owner

  • "Mossyford cottage was the best self-contained accommodation I've stayed in, the appliances all worked, the house was nicely furnished and felt like a proper home."

    Having a full-sized freezer and fridge was excellent - and not so common in holiday lets, I've found. It is a gem, and Holly is a delight. I hope to return. Special shout out for the local produce welcome hamper, this really is the way holiday homes should be operated.

    Thank you Catherine, lovely to meet you and hope to see you again. Holly Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with everything we could possibly need."

    The extras such as the excellent welcome hamper and washing pods, tea and coffee were a nice surprise. We also appreciated the decoration especially the home crafts. There were instructions for everything except the heating and although we managed to sort this, instructions would have been helpful. Great location for visiting Alnwick, the coast and inland. We would definitely stay again and recommend.

    Thank you for kind comments and I shall take on board the comment about heating. Instructions will be placed in book asap. Thank you Holly Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a beautiful and secluded area with spectacular views across the countryside."

    It is detached from the owner's property next door, giving total privacy, whilst allowing the shared use of the extensive gardens and summer house. The cottage is extremely well appointed, with DVDs, books to read, games, and catering for all culinary needs if you want to cook for yourself. The property is tastefully and beautifully decorated, giving a very modern but homely feel. When we stayed, it was scrupulously clean, which is reassuring in these times. We could not recommend it more.

  • "A gorgeous cottage in an idyllic location, excepting the owners home there's no other property in view."

    Spotless, warm and just fantastic, it is totally equiped with everything you could need. The owner is lovely and can't do enough. A very quiet lane to walk the dog in safety. There are not enough superlatives to describe this cottage and the owner. We very highly recommend the cottage.

    Hats off to the owner for the warm welcome and wonderful hamper. We would certainly recommend this cottage as a wonderful base for exploring the Northumberland coast and places further inland.

About the location


  • Alnmouth 4 miles
  • Bamburgh 15 miles
  • Rothbury 10 miles

The attractive and historic market town of Alnwick is dominated by Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland. The Castle Gardens, opened in 2002, are home to Europe's largest cascading water feature, a fabulous (and enormous) treehouse, a delightful rose garden and a beautiful, walled ornamental garden, which will delight novice and experienced gardeners alike. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films! The town's narrow streets have seen little change since the days when the London to Edinburgh stage coach passed through and the Market Place, with its stone cross, is still the central feature and the ideal venue for the weekly Saturday market. Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
