    we stayed at cuthberts cottage situated in a layby just at the side of the a1 as expected it was a little noisy from passing traffic but the cottage is well situated for all the tourist places to visit in area having a bus stop outside the door was very handy and buses were on a regular basis one way went to berrick upon tweed and the other way to Newcastle upon tyne which takes 2 hours one bus and over 3 the other going to all villages and places of interest in between full day out without the car was more like a holiday to me as I don't normally use public transport we walked to holy island from cottage around 10 miles there and back although most people drive there and pay to park in town at around £6 for the day tides change daily so advanced planning is a must the cottage has everything you need to cook and make home solid fuel / wood stove is included although you can buy fuel next door at garage its a little pricey bringing your own would be a cheaper option there is pub at other side serving meals from breakfast to evening meals which was handy at times especially after walking all day clean bedding and and mezzanine floor to get upstairs via spiral staircase that I found to be novel idea microwave and electric oven and hob was adequate fridge was on when we arrived with storage heaters ticking over day and night plenty sockets to plug your appliances I would come again on the parking situation alone having bought new car I needed to know it was safe and having your own drive at side of house gated off was very good to know when we arrived all in all I would recommend this place for price and location alone
