  • "The cottage was great no faults at all except one thing - the cleaner said he kills spiders."

    This really upset me. Its cruel and unnecessary. You just need a cup and a piece of paper to put them outside. He was horrible

  • "I would say the house was ideally situated for travelling to most of the major sites in east Northumberland it was small but had everything we needed for our stay water pressure was very low for the shower and a few of the taps didnt turn off properly."

    comfort wise the seating in the lounge area was well worn so had little support for old bones. television was less than expected possibly due to a recent transmitter failure, but not much to complain about. plenty of cooking and eating facilities. the site was very good for walking the dog of an evening up to the fields to see the horses and the riding centre staff were very friendly as was the owner of the complex. overall we had a good week visiting sites and beaches which is all we needed really

  • "Perfect location for exploring the area."

    The cottage is compact but this was as expected and had everything we needed (except from a washing machine which was listed. There may have been one available but as we didn’t need one we didn’t ask.) We are a family of 4 and had enough room. The children were happy that the wifi and TV worked well! Cragside and Wallington NT properties are well worth a visit and is the glorious Northumberland coastline. We don’t usually return to the same place but have already considered it for next year!

  • "Amazing unforgettable stay."

    It was a quiet farm location and still less than 10 min to all necessary shops. The bathroom has been renovated - it is brand new and sparkling clean. Please ignore the bathroom pic as it needs to be updated. Would definitely recommend and revisit.

  • "Good value accommodation ."

    Plenty of room for 2 people and a golden retriever. It exceeded my expectations as I was expecting to hear my next door neighbours as some people complained of thin walls but it was very quiet. It would be a bit tight for a family of four!! We had a good holiday and would use again. Regards Tina and Andrew and Barley the golden retriever

  • "Heron cottage is a lovely cottage."

    It was in a very quiet spot in which our kiddies could cycle around within the gardens but close to Morpeth & the things we wanted to do. It was clean, felt like being at home and exceptional value.

  • "The accommodation was clean, modern and well equipped."

    The bedroom was lovely and spacious, however, the living space was smaller than we expected. For three adults, it was a little cramped. The surroundings are lovely and it was a very easy drive into Morpeth and beyond.

  • "A great location for exploring Northumberland."

    The owners of the cottage were very welcoming and friendly. The cottage was very clean. It was very well equipped with all the usual kitchen utensils, cupboard and wardrobe space, even a hairdryer and a welcoming bottle of wine. Beds were comfortable and car parking was right outside of the cottage. All in all we had a great holiday - nothing to fault. WELL DONE TO THE OWNERS.

  • "This cottage is MUCH smaller than it appears on the website."

    There is no way that it could comfortably accommodate four people, as claimed in the listing. There were only two of us and we still tripped over each other. The only door to the living area gave you a nasty clout if you happened to be in the tiny kitchen, making tea or even worse, kneeling to get something from the fridge. (You open the fridge door and the living room door simultaneously at your peril!) This cottage would be wholly unsuitable for the frail or elderly as the only loo is downstairs and the bedroom is upstairs, so if you needed to use the bathroom during the night, it would be tricky. The Sykes description states "a lovely fitted kitchen with many modern appliances". There was a small fridge, no freezer, no dishwasher, no washing machine and an electric cooker that had clearly seen better days. It was peaceful only if you didn't mind barking dogs and people walking backwards and forwards outside. I accept that I booked this cottage in haste and did not examine the description as I normally do, but I do feel it is misrepresented and certainly doesn't deserve the three ticks Sykes have given it. As for "cosy" - claustrophobic would be more accurate. Sorry but I did not enjoy staying here. I have used Sykes cottages several times and this is the first time I have been disappointed.

  • "The photographs of the cottage did not do it full justice, Heron cottage being far nicer than we expected."

    The kitchen area was extremely well-equipped and tea towels were provided, yet we had an email from Sykes saying that we had to bring our own. Also, there was a hairdryer, which wasn't mentioned, and this would have saved bringing our own. We received a very warm welcome from Jane, the owner. The gardens around the site, which is nicely secluded, were very attractive and the location is excellent for exploring many places of interest, most of which are only about 20 minutes drive away. It was unseasonably cold weather during our stay, but the cottage was well heated and cosy. Complementary use of secure wi-fi was also appreciated.
