    “The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, with a nice welcome pack provided.”

    This was greatly appreciated as we arrived quite late on the Friday evening. We did interact with the owners who proved their worth by responding very quickly to a tiny query that we had. The beds were very comfy and there was plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space. Hairdryers supplied if needed too. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen, though we only cooked a couple of times despite best intentions - the pub beckoned! ...

    This was greatly appreciated as we arrived quite late on the Friday evening. We did interact with the owners who proved their worth by responding very quickly to a tiny query that we had. The beds were very comfy and there was plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space. Hairdryers supplied if needed too. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen, though we only cooked a couple of times despite best intentions - the pub beckoned! We would definitely recommend this cottage for a relaxing holiday. The village of Longframlington has everything that you need - it has 2 pubs, although we definitely favoured The Village for both food and the friendliness of the staff and locals. It is also dog friendly which helped as we had 2 pooches with us. The reviews all suggest that the Granby is better for food, but we found it very average (though we did only get a takeaway), and the pub itself was soulless. Not somewhere I'd feel comfortable going for a couple of beers after a long day's walking. The Running Fox bakery has an amazing selection of artisan bread, cakes and snacks which we found hard to resist. it also offers takeaway coffees/teas if that's what you're looking for. We used Carr's, the corner shop and everyone there was very friendly and there was a good selection of items to buy (though we only picked up a few things that we'd forgotten). We didn't go to the butchers, but there was always a queue outside which is testament to its popularity. Being on the edge of the Cheviot Hills the variety of walks and vistas was incredible and we were exhausted every night from exploring the area. We visited Alnwick to go to Barter Books which is really worth the trip. We also went to the beach at Drurudge bay twice. Once we walked south from the country park and then the next time we walked North to Amble and back along the cliff path. The beach is 7 miles long and absolutely stunning. We did a walk from Rothbury up to the Cheviots - that's a nice place to visit too. We did a circular walk along Hadrian's Wall from Steel Rigg - that was challenging because of all of the steps, but absolutely stunning. We did a walk into the Cheviots from Alwinton which was stunning - really rugged and remote, we loved it.
