  • "This is our second stay at The Pepperpot."

    The cottage is well equipped for everything you’ll need and is well located to explore the surrounding area. There really is so much to see and do during the day and relax back at the cottage in the evening, watching the sunset. Whilst I wouldn’t hesitate to return for a third time, we did notice that the wine fridge was still broken from last year and things like the sofas and some of the bedroom furniture is looking a bit tired now. When we arrived we also felt the level of cleaning was not as good as the previous year; the windows weren’t too clean and had marks on most likely left by a previous four legged occupant

  • "Stayed at many holiday cottages, this one was right up there."

    All needed for great stay and refreshing attention to detail and a high spec in general .Great views at rear and location for all the local sights. Hope to return one day soon. One negative though i am afraid and a bad one at that with agents. There was a broken light switch in master bedroom. It was dangerous and could have potentially have given us a shock when using it . I received voicemail on first day of stay (Saturday 30th March) from Sykes saying they had been made aware of it by housekeeping prior to us arriving and would be sorted out next week. I rang Sykes straight back and said id had this voicemail but was URGENT, explaining why, and needed attending too immediately. No one come to fix over the weekend or indeed the next week as stated in voicemail either. It was same ( broken) when we left following Friday. For this lapse level of service and also being a H&S issue id rate them as an agent 0/10

  • "We had a delightful stay in Pepperpot cottage."

    The accommodation is very comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need. Views from sitting room and master bedroom are stunning. The dogs loved the enclosed garden and we were fortunate enough to have some decent weather to be able to sit outside. Cottage is well situated for coastal walks or visiting other places of interest.

    Baking trays and non stick frying pans need replacing. We are definitely rebooking for next year as our daughter is chronically unwell and the quiet and lovely location helped her have a relaxing break

    Well I must say WOW, it is a absolutely beautiful place to stay and give it 5 stars in all areas. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need and the owners have thought of everything. The lovely spacious bedrooms and bathrooms allow all the family their own areas. The living room is beautiful with the fantastic view of the very large garden and fields. Our dog was in heaven with the garden. We will definitely stay again and 100% recommend it to anyone else. Thank you so much for an incredible stay.

  • "Beautiful cottage with enclosed garden and fabulous views."

    This is a house with stairs which wasn’t clear from the listing, we incorrectly(our error) thought from the photographs there was a downstairs bedroom. View from the master bedroom was amazing. Kitchen fully equipped for self- catering. Excellent butchers in Amble and cafe- Bertram’s in Warkworth.

  • "Probably the most well equipped and comfortable cottage we have stayed in."

    Situated on a farm complex with a number of other holiday cottages and residential properties. There was everything we could have needed and it was so peaceful and relaxing. Fabulous views from the rear of the cottage. Great space for dogs as the garden is fully enclosed, although if you have a very big dog or one that can jump quite high, they would possibly be able to jump over the fence. The cottage was clean and very comfortable, especially the beds. It’s an ideal base for sightseeing and returning back to a lovely cottage in the evening with a real fire for any chilly nights. Would recommend the Masons Arms pub in Warkworth for superb meals, especially the steak and ale pie but beware, the portions of pie are not for the faint hearted!! They are also very dog friendly. The Cook and Barker at Newton on the Moor is also another great dog friendly pub. Cragside and Rothbury are well worth visiting and a visit to Rothbury family butchers for their cragside cracker sausages are a must! Can recommend Turnbull’s butchers if you want to eat at the cottage. Great meat and various pies etc. A visit to Holy Island is definitely worth it if the tide times work for you. We had the best crab sandwiches ever there and there’s a fabulous little art gallery with the artist, John Tierney in residence. We bought another of his pictures and it was great to have another chat with him. The cottage is just up the road from Morwick ice cream dairy and we can certainly recommend this! We also recommend a visit to Amble, Warkworth, Morpeth and of course, Alnwick. So much to see and do and what better way to do this than having a lovely cottage to stay in. We could have happily stayed for longer and will no doubt be booking the cottage again.

  • "The Pepper Pot is an amazing place to stay and we all felt instantly at home."

    There is so much space in the property and the garden and views are fabulous. A problem with the travel cot provided was quickly remedied, for which we were very grateful. The only slight suggestion I would have is regarding the baking trays for the oven. Most of them were too large to fit onto the shelves and it would be helpful if some suitably sized trays could be provided. That aside, we could not have had a better stay and we would highly recommend this gorgeous property, which is perfectly located for exploring all the beauty that Northumberland has to offer !

    We contacted the local office re toilet rolls and oven - and it was sorted that day - we did it discover the dirty frying pans until Wednesday evening - so had to get the scourers out before could use…not happy .. we also reported the other issues so the office were aware and they did apologise We were disappointed and our expectations were not met, albeit the list appears to be little things it all adds up when you want a stress free relaxing holiday.

The property

Warkworth 3.1 miles.

Resting on a farm estate just a few miles away from the delightful village of Warkworth in Northumberland, The Pepper Pot is an impressive barn conversion which is the ideal destination for a family holiday.

Boasting simply superb views over open countryside, The Pepper Pot offers a calm and restful sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and yet is close to a wonderful range of activities and amenities.

The bright and airy sitting room has delightful wood flooring, a comfy seating area, an attractive woodburning stove and floor-to-ceiling windows and a patio door letting in loads of light and offering captivating rural views, which all add up to create a really pleasant place to sit back, relax and enjoy spending time.

The spacious kitchen is sleek and stylish and is fully fitted with everything needed to whip up delicious food.

Pull up a stool at the breakfast island, pour yourself a drink and keep the designated chef company.

Adjoining the kitchen, is an elegant dining area with a rustic dining table and chairs all set up ready to host long, sociable meals together.

Outside, there are extensive gardens to the rear which are just perfect for children (and any pets!) to run around safely while the adults can relax on the patio area and enjoy spending time alfresco.

After all that fresh air, it’s time for bed so make your way to any of three wonderfully appointed super-king-size bedrooms, where you can sink into sumptuous beds and look forward to a relaxing sleep.

Waking up in the morning and you get to soak up the sights and sounds of the countryside, so after a refreshing shower and morning coffee on the patio, you’re ready to get out and start exploring.

As well as miles and miles of stunning countryside to walk and hike through, the charming coastal village of Warkworth is close by, which is known for being home to 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.

Enjoying an idyllic rural setting, The Pepper Pot promises guests a relaxing and memorable holiday stay.

The fence height is around 1 metre, with chicken wire or wooden uprights on the fence so dogs cannot get through.

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