    This was a perfect location to visit the local sites. Quiet village setting, which was perfect for us and our little dog. The cottage was lovely, clean and well equipped. We would certainly return or recommend this property.

    The electric heaters worked better than expected and we didn't need them on long to keep the cottage warm, we went early March and the weather was cold and windy. Its ideally situates to visit places of interest. Had a lovely time, would highly recommend

  • "Lovely cottage in the middle of Belford."

    Everything that you need for a comfortable stay for a family of 4 plus a dog. Lovely beds, the shower was good and it was lovely having a real fire. Wifi was good too. Parking is easy - directly in front of the house. The back yard/garden is not fully enclosed and it has shared access with next door, so it’s a bit tricky if you have a dog. We just made sure that someone stayed outside to keep an eye on our dog whenever she went out there. The village is lovely with a few really nice pubs (that are all dog and children friendly) and a co op. There are two cafes but they don’t allow dogs inside so we didn’t try them. The pubs weren’t serving food and the local chippy was closed for the majority of our stay. But the co op kept us well stocked. A good central spot to see the local sites. Would recommend.

    So pleased Sarah that you and your family enjoyed staying at our cottage. Hope you all got out and about to explore the surrounding area. Thank you for your positive feedback. Hope you consider returning in the future. Julie and Rikki. Property Owner

  • "Mill Cottage in Belford is a great location for both the coast and the Cheviot hills."

    It was generally very pleasant, well-equipped and very clean. The shower was one of the best we've experienced in a holiday cottage! Our only complaint is the lack of space in the kitchen area - no cupboard space to store provisions, very limited clear work surface to prepare meals and a tiny table with 4 chairs crammed round it. We were glad there were only 2 of us and took 2 of the chairs upstairs out of the way!

  • "Lovely homely cottage in a nice little village."

    .plenty of historic places to visit within a short distance. Would definitely recommend it for a family of four or smaller.

  • "The only thing that brought my score down to a 9 was that since I’ve had a hip replacement I need to have a high chair to sit comfortably on."

    The Chesterfield settees, which were in great condition, are a bit low for me.

  • "The standards of cleanliness were very good, which given the current situation (Sept 2020) was very important."

    Some black mould in the shower which it would have been nice not to have seen; not enough to cause any concern but it had been referred to in the visitors book by a previous guest two weeks earlier. A fairly basic cottage by way of equipment and facilities but as described so no complaint. Comfortable bed. Decent television and good Wi-Fi. Situated in a good position for access to the surrounding area. Very little outside area at the rear and given the way the rear has been enclosed by the neighbours, not very attractive. Decent sized and stocked Co-op supermarket minutes walk away very handy.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay Philip. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention for us to deal with. Hope you return in the future. Julie and Rikki. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful quaint village, with lots to do in the area."

    Only criticism is the squeaky bed! Looks great and is actually quite comfy, until you dare to move- then you’ll be woken by the horrendously creaky metal frame.

    Hope you enjoyed your holiday Nicola. Thank you for bringing the creaky bed situation to our attention. It has since been replaced by a lovely sturdy wooden bed. Feedback from recent customers has been very positive. Hope you still consider returning. Julie and Rikki Property Owner
