  • "Pleasant holiday home which was a good base for us to explore the local area."

    Lovely touch with a welcome gift and enjoyed the hot tub, (although some basic instructions would have been helpful). Would have been useful to have a few more hooks or a smaller airer inside for drying towels, and felt the instruction folder could have had a lot more information in it regarding local area/amenities, as well as WiFi password. Unfortunately we had no access to WiFi for the duration of the stay which with 2 teenagers was an inconvenience & while not the end of the world this did impact on trying to make plans for our time there. We arrived on a Sunday and contacted Skyes first thing Monday. They did not reply until Thursday afternoon and offered no apology for the delay and sent just a standard response which was not specific to Daisys retreat, suggesting that we check the router and/or ask at main reception which we had already done prior to contacting them. So while I would stay again at Daisys retreat, I would not book through Skyes cottages again for their very poor customer service.

  • "Very disappointed."

    Filthy veranda and badly stained deck chair with another chair broken. A Jacuzzi with a scum line and grimy so we didn't use it. Two stains on the settee. Rusty radiators which left brown marks on the towels. A kitchen sink that leaked into the cupboard below which soaked our belongings in there. The shower leaked onto the bathroom floor too. I can send pictures if you want them. I appreciate there is nothing the owner can do about the pine needles that were in the jacuzzi, in our food, in our feet etc etc but with a two year old with us it was not ideal at all, we spent most of the holiday sweeping and hoovering.

    Thank you for your feedback. It is a shame that you didn't contact myself or Sykes during your stay, as I would have been keen to assist rectifying the issues you have now reported. I will ensure that your comments are passed to my cleaning team so that they are aware of your feedback. Property Owner

The property

Longframlington 3.8 miles.

Nestled amidst Northumberland’s rolling countryside on Percy Wood Country Park in Swardale near Longframlington is Daisy’s Retreat.

This welcoming, single-storey holiday home benefits from a fabulous location with access to on-site facilities including a golf course and tennis court and is within driving distance to both the coast and the breath-taking Northumberland National Park.

It also boasts a wonderful interior completed by three bedrooms, an enclosed deck and enclosed patio with furniture and hot tub; the perfect choice for families or friends looking to explore all Northumberland has to offer with two of their beloved canine companions.

Utilise the off-road parking before stepping inside where you can unwind after a day full of exploration on the plush corner sofa.

Later head into the fully-equipped kitchen area where you can help cook up tasty meals that the whole group can savour at the table or alfresco on the patio furniture outside; wherever you dine, be sure to raise a toast to your well-earned getaway!

After dinner, indulge in a soothing soak in the hot tub, which is the perfect place to watch as the stars appear overhead; when the sky darkens, head back inside to wash off the day before sloping off to sleep in either a double or two twin bedrooms.

If you can tear yourself away from this site, head the Bari Bar, which can be accessed via foot, where you can purchase the necessities or dine out, or head to the nearby village of Longframlington where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials at the local store or treat your loved ones to a delicious meal at The Granby Inn.

Further amenities also lie in Felton, including the Northumberland Arms, a charming pub offering traditional fare.

On sunny days make your way to the coast to while away the day upon the golden shores of Warkworth Beach which boasts fabulous views over the North Sea, or head to Amble for an unforgettable boat trip on the open water with the chance to see puffins, seals and even whales!

Northumberland National Park with its wealth of walking and hiking routes and impressive history is also easily accessible by car; a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.

Make memories at Daisy’s Retreat!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

The village of Longframlington sits at the heart of rural Northumberland, between the Cheviots and the coast and provides great access to a range of great walking opportunities.

Just 10 minutes’ drive to the west is the National Trust’s Cragside House and Gardens, whilst the Heritage Coast is just a 15-minute drive to the east, offering miles of clean sandy beaches. The historic town of Alnwick, with its impressive Castle and Garden, lies just 11 miles to the north and is well worth a visit. With the spectacular National Park also within easy reach, this superb base is ideal for exploring Northumberland or taking a relaxing break!
