  • "A really lovely cottage in a superb location."

    Very comfortable beds and living room furniture and beautiful outside area. Excellent situation for days out up and down the coast. Clean, plentiful hot water, efficient heating and generous supply of fuel for the stove. If there are any small niggles it would be that the hob is not good to use and the lighting in the living room could be better.

  • "The cottage was homely, very comfortable and was a really enjoyable start to our holiday."

    All very thoroughly thought out to ensure that all the things you needed were in place. This was the first time we had been as a family on holiday, we all loved the cottage and having the wood burner added to cosy nights in. My daughter has already reccomended the cottage to her collegues at school. Mrs B Harrison

  • "Large accommodation with plenty of comfortable lounge seating, while the kitchen had all that was needed with dishwasher and washing machine; those and the fridge+freezer are all fitted/concealed."

    Bedrooms are large and beds comfortable. Internet and entertainment with TV and DVD player all working well. Overall layout of the cottage is very good.

  • "A lovely cottage which met all our expectations."

    The owners Dorothy & Brian Jackson were absolutely charming and helpful. We in fact stayed 2 weeks in Dorothy's Cottage as the owner arranged for the family who had booked for our second week to have Brian's Cottage instead, thus saving our having to exit with all our luggage by 10am and return at 4.30pm - a very thoughtful solution. A super week.

  • "Everything provided that we needed for a great holiday."

    Cottage was spotlessly clean. Location was perfect for us - about a 3 mile walk (or cycle!) into alnmouth along farm tracks and cycle paths which made for great evening strolls. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to all age groups.

  • "We had a really good time."

    A good and cosy place for us 3 friends to recharge our batteries and catch up on each others lives. Fulfilling a 25yr dream for me, visiting Bamburgh Castle. All other places within easy reach by car. Worth the drive and worth a re-visit.

  • "Cottages were spacious and well equipped, the setting is superb, with farm land all around and a distant view of the sea."

    Ideally situated for exploring the Northumberland coastline.

  • "We had a very enjoyable week at the cottage."

    It was extremely comfortable and we felt at home from the very first evening. The owner's daughter Katherine was there to meet us and was very helpful explaining things and answering our questions. She was very welcoming. The cottage was spacious and well-equipped for our needs. The cottage is in an ideal location for walking on the Northumberland coastal path, visiting Holy Island, Alnwick and Bamburgh castles and National Trust properties. The holiday was made even better by the good weather we experienced. Although there was a cold wind on the coast it was fine all week and we had lots of sunny days. We would certainly return to the cottage for another holiday.

  • "Excellent location for visiting the area, perfect if you have a large party and can book all 3 cottages."

    We found it to be comfortable and clean but the carpets may not be to your liking, especially if you prefer hard floors. For example, if you have allergies or just don’t like the idea of carpets from a cleanliness point of view. All in all, a well equipped cottage in a great location.

    A family with two young children. Lovely surroundings and near to Alnmouth and Alnwick. The children loved playing in the garden. Plenty of space. Highly recommend.

  • "A very enjoyable stay."

    The cottage was warm and comfortable. Tastefully decorated to match the property and fully equipped. We stayed for 4 nights over Christmas and with the log burner, and Christmas tree provided, felt very much at home. We needed to ask a couple of questions and Dorothy and Brain sorted these out very quickly, including coming straight up to show us how to work the electric Cooker! We would certainly book to stay at this cottage again regardless of the time of year - though perhaps we'll opt for the summer next time so we can appreciate the wonderful setting and countryside.
