  • "The house was lovely inside and very clean on arrival."

    The garden is extremely safe and secure with a solid wall perimeter, perfect for dogs or small children. We particularly enjoyed the kitchen and outdoor seating areas, which were perfect for our family to spend time together at breakfast and in the evenings. Lindisfarne and Bamburgh are relatively close to the property, so we found this to be a great location from which to explore Northumberland. There were several lovely beaches close by, but Cocklawburn was our favourite and only a 5 minute car journey away.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Foundry House."

    The property had everything we needed and more. It is spacious accommodation for eight people and has been very thoughtfully laid out and equipped. The ground floor bedroom and shower room mean that those less mobile can access everything they need. The hot tub was well used amd great for relaxing. The kitchen is very well equipped and has plenty of room to cook and eat together. We used both lounges. My only regret is that I didn’t have time to read many of the large number of excellent books on the shelves. We would love to return in future and I have recommended it to a number of people already.

  • "This was a perfect house for us, in a fantastic location in Berwick."

    The house was brilliantly kitted out, very clean, luxurious and comfortable. The garden was a sun trap and we used the hot tub everyday. Wonderful walks each morning to Spittal Beach with the dog and day trips to Edinburgh (by train) and Lindisfarne made this a perfect spot. Plenty of good places to eat in Berwick, friendly people and overall a relaxing holiday in great place! We will be back ❤️

  • "Such a lovely find."

    The interior is just lovely. We had our son and his partner stay with us and as there are two living rooms, we all had our own space. The 2nd floor is a suite of its own with chairs, TV and en-suite with a sauna! The good thing was there were 3 TV's with netflix and Prime. Other luxury cottages could learn a thing or two from the owners of this property as everything was considered. With a enclosed garden for the dogs to roam freely too, and a stair gate to keep the dogs separated. The house is located in Berwick, central to alot of places. We went to Edinburgh, Lindisfarne, Bamburgh Castle,Newcastle and Jedburgh and spent our mornings walking the dogs on Cocklawburn beach which was beautiful. We would love to return one day. Would highly recommend.

  • "Wow the perfect week in such a lovely home!"

    The house is furnished to a high level , the owners clearly have an eye for detail they really have made it a home from home. There are plenty of instructions left by the owners covering all aspects of your stay. It’s located in a lovely quiet street and a great nights sleep in comfortable beds! The hot tub was a favourite feature that we used every night. There is an Asda in walking distance as well as the lovely Spittal Beach and Promenade. Our little fur baby also enjoyed his stay with an enclosed garden for him to explore. Thank you for a lovely week the weather was gorgeous too so great week all round. Do not miss this idyllic staycation we highly recommend!

  • "We couldn’t watch the rugby ?"

    ! :(

    I'm so sorry about that. The house has 3 smart TVs with the usual apps offering loads of channels and access to our netflix and amazon prime, however we appreciate there is no live streaming from the STV hub. Matches on BBC can can watched on the iplayer. Matches on STV do require connection of a alternative device for live streaming and there are HDMI cables attached to each TV for this purpose. Our apologies again that you missed out. Property Owner

  • "The property was excellent."

    Extremely well presented in a picturesque location close to the beach. The house was well equipped, with a fully stocked kitchen, logs for the fires, bed linen and towels all provided. As it was New Year, it was also furnished with Xmas trees and lights in the home and garden. The house was a mixture with old wooden beams, but modern features like an integrated sauna. My only negative, would be the Hot Tub. It was set on an economy setting of 37°. This is not hot enough in the cold and windy winter weather. This meant unfortunately, we could not use it for more than a few minutes, before it was too cold.

    I am so sorry about the hot tub. I agree that 37 degrees is too cold for this time of year! The temperature is consistently set to 39 degrees over the winter months and should have been at that temperature. I will discuss the issue with our maintenance person to ensure that this does not happen again. If I had been contacted I could have rectified the situation immediately. I apologise again.

  • "Had a fantastic week at Foundry house."

    We were a group of 8, travelled with a 7 month and 2 year old, The house was very spacious with 2 reception rooms. The kitchen was well equipped and plenty of seating for dining both inside and outside. The beach Spital was walkable from the house and the town area. Plenty of takeaways and nice eateries. We enjoyed Foxtons wine bar for a meal and drinks. We took bikes and managed a couple of rides along the cliffs to cocklawburn beach and beyond. I would recommend this accomadation for larger families or a few couples holidaying together. The hot tub in the garden was a fantastic treat after busy days.
