  • "The outside area was dirty and we were unable to use table and chairs."

    The hot tub that wasn’t working last year was still there covered in cobwebs reducing space to sit out. The small double bed in en-suite room - the mattress was lumpy and very uncomfortable.

  • "Lovely large property."

    No negative issues. Lots of easy parking and enough garden for our cocker spaniel. Belford village is very friendly and having a Co-op was most convenient. We enjoyed visits along the coast- a beautiful area.

  • "This cottage is a little gem within a lovely village with a Coop, pubs, cafe play parks and farm shop."

    The cottage itself is well equipped and roomy, the showers are powerful and the loft outside terrace area is sunny with great views of the country side. It was perfect for us to drive to Bamburgh beach every day which is 15 minutes down the road. We hope to return.

  • "Lovely stay thank you."

    Newly decorated, spacious house with everything we needed, better in reality than on-line pictures. Spotlessly clean, fresh flowers and milk in the fridge, oh and thank you for the chocolate biscuits! Would recommend and stay again. Great location too.

  • "The Berwick in Belford is perfectly situated to explore the area as it’s literally just off the A1 and yet Belford itself is such a lovely quiet village."

    The property was wonderful with no complaints- but I couldn’t get WiFi on the 3rd floor - which was a little inconvenient if I’m honest. It’s a lovely and warm spacious house. So welcoming to find milk, tea & coffee and biscuits for us on arrival. There was hand wash in all the bathrooms and in the kitchen & utility; enough dishwasher tablets for our needs and a generous supply of toilet paper. The towels were lovely & thick. I never used the washing machine but I’m sure the washing would have dried well in the warm kitchen had I needed to do so. The oven is lovely & big which was great as I did have to cook most nights. Unfortunately the Chip Shop, The Hotel and both pubs were unable to cook meals the week we were there - just an unlucky coincidence for various reasons- but The Co Op is a decent size & very well stocked - thank goodness. We did eat at the Lindisfarne Inn one evening for a Birthday celebration and that was very pleasant and a short drive away, located on the A1. We recycled our bottles in the centre near the fire station as they were not included on a list in a kitchen cupboard advising what was accepted in the Recycling collections. Parking was convenient to the side/rear of the 6 townhouses although we weren’t sure if there was specific parking for each property. There is a footpath from this private parking area along the back of the 6 townhouses to gain entry to the back of the property. It was a little slippery because of the wet leaves at times and the steps down the garden to the back door might be tricky for some. I needed to use a torch each evening on return. You can drive on a narrow slip road right in front of the 6 townhouses, which we did on arrival, to unload our stuff at the front door. It was very convenient and saved lugging our stuff down the back lane in the dark; the only niggle was that a car was parked on the road blocking the slip exit and we had to reverse back off it. Just a bit annoying after a 7 hour trip. All in all a lovely holiday and we wouldn’t hesitate to return here. Thank you - the owner was also lovely when we chatted about key entry before arrival.

  • "It was listed as having a hot tub When we arrived this was said to be out of order."

    This was one of the reasons we booked this property. We complain whilst we were there and are still awaiting hearing from you.

  • "Lovely accommodation in a great location for exploring in the area."

    Slight niggle was the poor wifi in the bedrooms with only 1 bar but I am sure this could be improved with a booster. Also found the tv difficult to work as we would have expected access to netflix and amazon prime. Instructions or manual may have helped. We had a lovely stay in this clean spacious and well appointed property. Thank you.

    Great balcony to eat and have drinks. Nice little village with 2 nice pubs.

  • "It's a good base."

    When looking for accomodation i skipped past the property a few times because of the frontage, but it's a large property that extends back. Clean and plenty of room to spread the family out. Great for bird lovers as well. You will need transport to get to the places you want, typically 15 mins to seaside destinations locally. Nice place that works well.

  • "Northumberland has everything - unspoilt coast, historical monuments, wonderful countryside."

    One of the best places to stay in UK. Then there's the birds, the sunsets and the food. Belford itself is a great central location.

  • "Very comfortable accomodation and exactly as described."

    Previous comments showed disappointment that the hot tub was not in use, but this is clearly in the description and was not an issue for us. Despite having poor weather, the property was superb, solid wood floors throughout meant we were not too concerned about leaving 'wet' patches on the floor.

  • "The whole experience was lovely, the property looked better than in the photos and the hosts had thought of everything."

    Just felt like a home away from home. We would have booked it again in a heart beat had they not been getting rid of the hot tub, really hope they reconsider that. That was literally the only disappointment we had. The area is lovely, co op is well stocked. The chippy up the road was amazing with proper beef dripping batter and the black swan pub in the square was lovely and welcoming. Plenty of places to walk your dog too and most places are dog friendly. The potted lobster restaurant in near by Bamburgh does a lovely meal if you’re looking for something a bit better than pub grub. Will definitely come back to the area just a shame it couldn’t be this cottage as a hot tub is a must for us as it makes it that bit more special.

  • "A great house in a great part of the world!"

    The house has a quality feel about it and the beds were extremely comfortable. Particularly liked the top bedroom with the terrace. Hot tub was also a nice addition! Will definitely look to come back at some point.

  • "We stayed at this property in February this year & unfortunately can see a deterioration in the level of house cleaning in preparation for our arrival this time."

    Also some maintenance needs attention regarding windows & ensuring there is a supply of lightbulbs would be helpful as there were 5 bulbs out in the lounge area.

  • "The house was lovely, clean and well equipped."

    We had two 16 year old girls with us who even though the WiFi didn't reach up to the bedrooms were more than happy in the hot tub while the adults were up on the decked balcony enjoying the views in the sunshine. Belford itself is ideally central, just off the A1, handy for all towns from Beadnell up to Berwick, perfect location as a base to explore the stunning Norhumbrian coastline.

  • "We arrived in the midst of a massive thunder and lightening storm the rain was torrential."

    Once we located the cottage the first impression was OMG its grim however once inside nothing could have been further from the truth. More than adequate size wise, clean, well equipped, comfortable and neat. A great village as a base for local attractions and a stonking county to visit. Sad to see the decline of the town best represented by the local Blue Bell Hotel which was dreadful. Such a shame such a bonny town has been left practically soulless through the closure of stores although the Co-op was great. Lovely people, great part of the country and very good cottage.
