  • "Had a lovely time away from any fireworks."

  • "My stay at Floodden Cottage was my first solo break since loosing my wife two years ago, so when setting off I had some trepidation."

    However, I couldn’t have chosen better. The cottage is situated on the Northumberland/Scottish border making it a perfect base to explore the local historic sites and some of our nation’s most beautiful countryside. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and well equipped for self catering (including a dishwasher). On arrival I was welcomed with a bottle of wine a some yummy treats for both myself and my two dogs. The coach house complex is surrounded by free range chickens, sheep and rolling field making is quiet and peaceful. There are two local pubs one about 250 metres down the road, the second (The Black Bull) around 4 km away in the quaint village of Etal; both of which are dog friendly and serve reasonably priced food. My only criticism is that it was virtually impossible to regulate the water temperature of the shower; notwithstanding, I would definitely recommend this cottage and would not hesitate staying here again. It was exceptional value for money. However, next time I’ll make sure I take my telescope to make the most of the dark sky overhead.

  • "Delivered exactly what it promised."

    Welcome pack very much appreciated. Spotlessly clean. Nicely furnished and remarkably no extra charge for our dog. Made a few suggestions for minor additions which were appreciated by the owner. Would definitely recommend. Great location , beautiful area, lots of walks and a short stroll to the local pub. THANK YOU.

  • "The studio cottage we rented for a week was absolutely ideal for what we wanted."

    Very well equipped for self catering purposes and a very high spec.throughout. Location was peaceful and tranquil but with amenities nearby. The owners were very helpful if we needed anything. We would definately return to the cottage and have already recommended to friends and family.

  • "Excellent location for exploring the area."

    Good for dogs. Generous welcome gifts including lovely freshly-laid eggs. The property is easily accessible and well-equipped but the seating is not ideal for disabled or older people - seats are low with low back supports. Longer central heating time would be welcome during cool weather as the proerty did not fully warm up although a small room heater is provided. Online advert needs amending as it states there is a bath. (Shower is fine.)

  • "Nice cottage apart from lack of heating."

    Only had radiators which came on after we were up so freezing in morning and not on during day.

  • "24/4-29/4/23- Flodden cottage was a smashing little studio cottage."

    Facilities available were spot on and you can pull your car right up to the door to load and unload, parking in the ample car parking spaces just outside the courtyard. We had use of two Paddocks to walk the dogs for last and first wees .. they had sheep and chickens in but no problem as dogs were kept on leads. It was a perfect spot for seeing some of the border villages/castles/gardens and most places very dog friendly. We used our own bedding as we always do but everything was beautifully clean anyway. Comfy bed, big shower (took a bit of twiddling to get the temp right) a short walk to the pub, food was beautiful and vey dog friendly ( book though as they get busy) . All in all a fab week in a beautiful studio with lovely views all around, close to walks, short 10 min ride to Scotland. (Coldstream) . The only thing we bought extra was toilet roll as there was only half a roll , just an oversight I think. We would definitely recommend and be happy to return to explore more of the borders. Thank you!
