  • "Gorgeous Property, and stunning bathroom."

    Small living room, but didn't need it as spent most time adventuring the local area. When at the property the bath or bed are the places to be.

    Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. James Property Owner

  • "Excellent location, lovely cottage wish there was an en suite and more comfortable sofa."

    We are planning some changes to the living area as soon as we are able and we do plan to change the sofa. It is a beautiful location, so peaceful, yet with quick and easy access to the best of Northumberland. Thank you so much for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Re Farne Cottage."

    Elford Let’s get the cons out of the way first. There’s maybe a couple of things that need attention eg. the shower thermostat was difficult for us turn on and we were unable to adjust the temperature…and it was hot. But Farne Cottage is a lovely, clean, cosy and quirky cottage. It has a well fitted kitchen with a microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. The bathroom is modern with a mega size bath and under floor heating. The beds are comfy too and the linen and towels were spotless. There were a few creaking doors but that just adds to the character of the cottage. It is quite rural but well situated for exploring beautiful Northumbria. In short, we really loved it, had a fabulous stay and wouldn’t hesitate to return and recommend it. Thank you J.& B.

    Thank you for your kind review. The shower is wonderful but they have adjusted the water pressure in the area which has, in turn, made the thermostat difficult to turn. But please, if you have any issues like these, contact NCCC who manage the cottage and they will be more than happy to help. Thank you for staying with us. James Property Owner

  • "Gorgeous little cottage, perfectly situated for exploring the coast and countryside."

    Big double bed very good, not so the seating downstairs, which we found very uncomfortable. Nice enclosed grassy area for dog was great, as were the views across the fields. Will definitely be back.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so limited with the space downstairs but are planning to make changes at the end of the season. Once again, thank you for staying with us. Barbara Property Owner

  • "Great size bathroom with a powerful shower & a heated towel rail."

    2 of the ceiling bulbs could do with replacing so brightness is the same as the others. Currently, it's rather dark/gloomy over the bath side of the room. Good size bedrooms & the adults room has a tv & dvd player. Thoughtful provisions throughout for those with small children, although that didn't apply to us. Perhaps if the 2nd bedroom wasn't wholly designed for young children, it would be beneficial to other ages/adults? Kitchen is galley shaped but well equipped. The lounge was probably the least comfortable room for us as due to space available. Obviously this is a cottage (hence cosy) but the permanent bench seating makes furnishings inflexible I guess. The 2-seater sofa wasn't particularly comfortable for a cosy evening in & if 2 people are wanting to watch tv together, it wouldn't be possible to also sit around the fire. Nice open views but not really possible to sit outside comfortably. There's a stone bench outside this cottage but one has to park somewhere, especially considering other cottage guests so your own vehicle is in the way of this bench. This equally blocks some light/view coming into the lounge area but no other option I guess. Worth noting that the home owners at the end of the terrace prefer the gate to be kept closed. This could prove tricky for elderly/less strong persons as it drags over the concrete so you have to physically lift it up. The main negative for us was the cleanliness - hairs (I assume dog) on the fresh duvet when we first arrived; not thoroughly vacuumed or washed hard floors (I wiped some water off the bathroom floor after a shower & the cloth was black so I kept washing!). So I think some heavy-duty vacuuming is needed on change-over, especially to remove all the dog hairs from previous guests (we did not bring a dog).Then thorough washing, especially the bathroom. Plenty of spiders & cob-webs so the cleaning team need to look up & use the suitable device on the vacuum. When we first opened the door, I counted 5 spiders around where we would hang our coats. I don't wish to put on my hat/coat, worrying there's possibly a spider got in them. Similarly, a lot of dust on surfaces in the adults room so not much thorough dusting it seems.

    Handy to have the drying green space for the dog and child.

  • "Farne Cottage is very comfortable, we enjoyed our stay."

    Just two things: The kitchen tap was very wobbly, we used it gingerly. The details said that there would be a some wood for the wood burner, there was none, a shame as it was cold and would have been nice. I reported both these points to the agent.

    Sorry to hear your issues, we will of course try and address theses issues as soon as we can. Hope you still managed a good break with us as it's such a beautiful part of the country! Property Owner

    Another wonderful holiday, gorgeous weather in the beautiful part of the world. We enjoyed visiting all the places we've been to previously - and not a lot has changed.

  • "We had a very relaxing time."

    The cottage is lovely with everything we needed and so quiet as we had no neighbours. Loved the view over the fields. It was our first visit to Northumberland so it was good to get to know this part of the country and we clearly have to do a lot more. The cottage is a great base for some of the best attractions in the area and beyond.
