  • "A beautifully presented dog friendly cottage in a great location in Warkworth."

    The cottage has everything you could want for a very pleasant stay. The village is very attractive with a pleasant walk by the river. For longer walks be prepared for wet ground and mud in the winter months.

    Thanks for the lovely feedback. We are delighted that you had an enjoyable stay in the cottage and in Warkworth and hope to see you again sometime soon. Hopefully it won't be as wet! All the best, Alison and Stewart. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage, fully furnished with all our holiday needs, even extra towels provided for muddy dog paws!"

    From the front door, you are able to enjoy very pleasant walks along the river and around the village. Warkworth has some really nice pubs and cafe's, all good food and friendly staff. The local beaches are amazing and well worth a visit and we can recommend the Craster kippers. All in all, a really great holiday.

    Thanks for the great feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in the cottage and the village. We hope to see you again sometime soon. Best wishes, Alison and Stewart. Property Owner

    Nice touch from the owners with the voucher for the local chocolate shop - thank you . The cottage is in a great position overlooking the river and with a private garden that would be lovely in warmer weather . Great communication from the owner . We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

  • "We loved our stay, and got everything we expected."

    It was one of the best equipped cottages we have been in, never been able to do a baked cheesecake before, although regular washing up would be required still if you filled the house due a limit on place settings. Used dishwasher for the Christmas dinners It didn't affect the stay in any way but the photos on the website are out of date, with the furniture (you could expect that) and the bathroom (totally) being changed. Having said that don't let this put you off - we loved it's position for dog walking and the local pubs, and the house itself was lovely. It's walkable to the beach, but going in the car means longer on the super beaches there. Highlight? Seeing a seal with a huge fish in the river close to the cottage

    Thank you for your feedback - we have just replaced the crockery and cutlery and put some extra settings. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and had everything you needed. We have made a number of improvements to the cottage including renovating the bathroom and replacing carpets and furniture. We will, however, have to get the photos redone for the website. We hope to see you again sometime soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely , well stocked, dog friendly cottage, overlooking the river in Warkworth."

    The log burner was particularly welcoming on chilly nights . Literally within spitting distance is the Masons Arms which does great food and is very welcoming for both yourselves and doggy friends. The only thing which maybe an issue for some people is the garden is opposite the cottage across a small not busy lane. It was fine for us but for people who are used to just opening the door to the garden and letting the dog out it maybe worth knowing. We loved our stay in this cottage and hope to return in the near future. Communication with the owner was excellent and nice touches like the voucher for the local chocolate shop left for us made us feel very welcome. Thank you

    The property was very clean and well-maintained with good appliances and equipment in the kitchen. The milk in the fridge, the card and voucher for a local shop, and the use of a membership to a local Leisure Centre were all very welcome and thoughtful. We would definitely book this property again.

  • "Lovely house and lovely place."

    Everything they’re needed for a really enjoyable stay. The only thing missing was a shower mat as it was extremely slippery so that my husband couldn’t use it. If we would have been staying longer I would have bought one. But a minor problem in a week. The personal greeting card and chocolate voucher was a lovely touch. Big thanks to you and the owners. I would recommend it.

    Thanks for your feedback Gillian. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your week and sorry that you had problems with the shower and the lack of a mat. We have now bought one following your feedback which was very helpful. We hope to see you again sometime soon. Property Owner

  • "It was fine, except we had some confusion over the door keys."

    There are two, and two locks, only one of which works, but inside there is a message asking us to double lock the door when leaving. Perhaps this is an old notice, but the top lock, in which the key does not fit, is the newer and better lock.

    Thanks for your feedback and hope that you enjoyed your stay. Apologies, both locks should have been working but the upper lock can be a bit temperamental . We have fixed it and will keep an eye on it. Property Owner

The property

Located in a quiet part of Warkworth in Northumberland, Riverside Cottage is a delightful, semi-detached stone cottage which is perfect for a family holiday.

The accommodation offers everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay with a welcoming sitting room complete with a gorgeous woodburning stove, somewhere you can imagine guests gathering to spend time together.

Step into the good-sized kitchen/diner and you will find a fully fitted kitchen equipped with everything needed to produce hearty fayre for the whole family and when it's time for dinner, there is an inviting dining table just waiting for guests to pull up a chair and indulge in leisurely meals together.

If you can see the sun shining out of the beautiful picture windows, then make your way to opposite the property, where there is a fantastic hidden garden complete with lawns and views over the river, where you can take a seat and soak up the views and the sunshine.

When it’s time for bed, there are three well-presented bedrooms; a king-size, a double and a single; all are equally charming and provide a calming place to recharge your batteries.

In the morning after a quick dip in the shower, you’ll be refreshed and raring to go and with so much to see and do there isn’t a minute to waste.
