  • "Lovely cottage, the back garden is wonderful for the dogs."

    Well furnished and supplied - one of the best places we have stayed in. Great for costal walks. Would very much recommend.

  • "Excellent cottage in quiet, relaxing location."

    Cottage is exactly as shown in photos. Finished to a high standard, spacious and very well equipped. Huge garden with beautiful views. Perfect for visiting lovely towns of Warkworth and Amble with several beautiful beaches nearby. Would fully recommend. Only slight disappoint was total lack of TV signal. Whilst watching TV was not a high priority, it is nice to know it works when you would like it to.

  • "Absolutely wonderful cottage, could not recommend highly enough."

    We did not want to leave and neither did our dogs who couldn’t believe the size of the garden. Stunning views of surrounding countryside. Well equipped kitchen. Good size bedrooms, with comfortable beds. Can not wait to return.

  • "The house was brilliant and well equipped, however only thing that let it down was the poor television signals and terrible Wi-Fi , some nights we couldn’t watch anything ."

    New aerial and better Wi-Fi required

    Hi I’m really sorry to hear you had this problem. I don’t know what went wrong? Did you contact the cottage company? We live some distance from the cottage but will try to get up there this week to see what the problem was. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Property Owner

  • "A very pleasant stay in a comfortable well equipped cottage."

    Lovely long garden for the dogs in a quiet, scenic location

  • "Brilliant property, lovely area, great layout."

    Spacious, well-equipped, great for dogs. Picky points- thoughtful wine on arrival- but no toilet roll, which seems odd. Seemed clean, but on moving coffee tables etc to clean it on leaving, it was very dusty; furniture hadn’t been moved to clean properly for a good while. We didn’t use bbq- but cleaned it anyway, as it hadn’t been cleaned after the last user. All a pity, really; I imagine the owners expect better from whoever cleans the place. Still, a great place to visit.

    Dear Mr Lawrence Thank you for your feedback, it is really important to me. The property is fully managed by Sykes and I will ensure your issues are brought to their attention. You should have had loo roll. You should also have been left a pack with tea coffe etc and a pack with a few dishwasher tablets. I am dismayed that the cleaning was not up to scratch. This is something I have drawn to their attention previously. . Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at the mustard pot."

    We had our two dogs and it was amazing to have the HUGE garden and lots of space downstairs for their beds. The kitchen was so well stocked with appliances and anything you might need. It’s a great location for Alnmouth and Warkworth. Would have loved to have stayed longer and explored local walks because it’s beautiful. Thanks for having us!

  • "A spacious, comfortable, homely cottage."

    Quiet & relaxing. Well appointed kitchen. Very comfortable beds. Good variety of games, books etc had the weather been poor. Well positioned for easy access around the county. Lots of useful information for places to visit & local amenities. Happy to recommend and to return....

  • "The property is finished to a high standard and feels spacious on entering the hall/kitchen area."

    The view from the lounge is a relaxing way to start the day. The patio and lawned area provides ample space to relax outside and the seating area at the end of the garden was an ideal book reading area. Parking so close to the property was also a bonus.

The property

Located on an idyllic farm steading in Acklington, a few miles from Warkworth, Northumberland, The Mustard Pot is a charming barn conversion which is the ideal holiday destination for a family or small gathering of family and friends.

The welcoming living space sets the tone for the rest of the property with ample seating arranged in front of a delightful woodburning stove and French doors leading outside, helping to bring the outside in and letting lots of light flood in.

You can imagine spending many happy hours here chilling out and catching up on each other’s holiday news.

When it’s time to start cooking for your holiday party, you will be impressed by the spacious kitchen which is fully fitted with everything the designated chef needs.

The attractive breakfast island is the perfect spot for guests to pull up a stool, pour themselves a drink and keep the chef company, and when it’s time to serve up, you can eat informally at the breakfast island or step into the dining area which has a rustic dining table and chairs all ready to welcome guests for long, leisurely meals together.

Outside, there are extensive gardens to the rear which offer beautiful views over open countryside and with an enclosed section, give children (and pets!) the opportunity to run around safely while the grown-ups can pull up a chair on the patio and relax, enjoying time alfresco.

When it’s time for bed, guests can choose from three well-appointed bedrooms, two super-king-sizes and a single.

All are bright and airy and come with TVs, so you needn’t miss out on your favourite telly and is the perfect chance to chill out away from the hustle and bustle of the main house.

With country walks aplenty on the doorstep and just a few miles away, is the pretty village of Warkworth which is known for being home of the dramatic ruins of a 12th century castle.

Its link to the past continues with the village’s selection of antique shops and galleries and it also has a beach and a golf course.

Attractions in the area worth visiting include Hadrian’s Wall, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Farne Islands and Alnwick Gardens.

Other beaches nearby worth packing a bucket and spade for include Alnmouth, Cresswell, Embleton and Newton Haven.

Whatever time of year, a holiday at The Mustard Pot offers a rural retreat to treasure forever.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
