  • "This little cottage is for a couple wouldn’t suit children."

    It’s dog friendly with lovely walks near by. The beaches although amazing are a car ride away. The owners are dog happy and have their own and live on site. They maintain the Bothy very well but the cottage does not have a dishwasher. It does however have a log burner and an ample supply of free range eggs from the owner who has her own chickens. Overall if your willing to travel to do your sight seeing daily (and food shop) it is a delightful quiet haven away from it all with beautiful scenery.

The Bothy was warm (wood burning Stove) and the the welcome cake was much appreciated. It was a pleasant stay and we will be back again. Just to mention the black bull pub has nice food when we tried it.

    Beautiful view from the bay window. Very relaxing! Bed was comfortable & the log burner was a lovely feature.

Overall, a lovely place to stay if relaxation and getting away from it all is required.

    Greeted with cake and fresh eggs, we made ourselves at home right away and got into some heavy-duty relaxation. We spent every morning walking our dogs on along sections of the coast, then went to one of many beautiful tourist attractions (castles, gardens, islands and towns) before going back to The Bothy to just read with a cup of tea in front of the big window to take in the view. On occasion we went out to the Cheviots at night to look at the stars. Everything was just perfect.

  • "The Bothy is a lovely, comfortable converted barn that manages to be both cosy and spacious."

    It is situated in a gorgeous part of the country, and has glorious views from the outside seating area (including at night: the starlight on a cloudless night is breath-taking). It is very well-equipped with everything a visitor needs for a relaxing base for a holiday in Northumberland - the owners have really thought of everything (including the provision of welcoming cake, and fresh eggs). Tall people (I am 6ft 2) will need to get used to the low beams in the bathroom - the trick is to open the door fully - but this is quickly learnt, and posed no problems for me. 10 minutes from Berwick-upon-Tweed and the Ford & Etal Estate, half-an-hour from Alnwick, Lindisfarne, Seahouses, the Flodden Field battle site, Cragside House ... and countless other historic and natural attractions. I thoroughly enjoyed my fortnight at The Bothy, and shall certainly use this as a base for my next holiday in Northumberland.

    The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make the property attractive. The setting is restful whilst also being convenient for visits to such places as Holy Island, Berwick, Bamburgh etc. If you are looking for somewhere to wind down and relax the Bothy is ideal. 5 star.

  • "A welcome break in a wonderful cottage in the most perfect, peaceful setting."

    We found 'the bothy' well-equipped, beautifully furnished and were taken with the finishing touches such as the fresh flowers and the cake and tea upon arrival. The fresh eggs made a cracking breakfast with our 'stottie' from the Lowick local store. We loved our tech free evenings sat in front of the windows overlooking the fields of gold awaiting the visit from the robin and the troop of chickens ably led by 'billiy' (our name) the black cockerel. We would definitely recommend 'the bothy' not only as a peaceful getaway but also as the perfect location to explore the stunning coastline and countryside of this part of Northumberland.

    The Bothy is a lovely compact property overlooking fields. You felt there was nothing else around but the owner's property was to the side, but did not distract from you feeling very secluded. Loved watching the cockerel and hens walking about the grounds and the own flying around at certain times in the fields.

Once we'd got over the "separation anxiety" of not having internet access we enjoyed the freedom of not being bothered by it. The lack of a decent mobile signal is perhaps more of a handicap and although this is probably beyond the owners' control perhaps it should be pointed out to potential occupants. The property is well described and very well equipped and the "welcome cake" on arrival was an unexpected but very well received surprise!
