  • "Nice property in a lovely village."

    Great base for exploring the area. We enjoyed the hot tub after a long day exploring. Very good communication with the owners.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Cottage."

    It was a lovely home from home and spotlessly clean with everything we needed. The location was great too, a perfect base to explore Northumberland.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Even the main double bed was comfortable and this is said from someone with back issues and can easily pick up back discomfort from most mattresses! The host clearly cares for the property and its guests. Hopefully we will be back - next time with better weather which would be harsh of us to expect the host to guarantee this!!

  • "Great modern cottage in a fab location for touring the Northumberland National Park, Alnwick Castle 15 mins away, North East Coast and only half an hour from Newcastle."

    The cottage is set in the small village of Longframlington which has a couple of pubs, local shop, butcher and bakery so everything you need within walking distance. The cottage itself is modern, clean and well equipped with the added bonus of a lovely hot tub, it had been decorated for Christmas on our arrival which made it feel cosy and festive. Good WiFi and TV set up for evening entertainment, all in all a great stay, would definitely visit again and would recommend.

  • "The property was very comfortable and had everything we needed."

    . Unfortunately we didn't use the hot tub much and was really looking forward to that...as there was always lots of flys, floating round in it... apart from that everything was fine

  • "Perfect. Exceeded our expectations."

    High quality furnishings, spotlessly clean. Home from home. Everything you need. The hot tub is amazing. Can't recommend highly enough. Thank you Kevin & Claire.

  • "The house is well situated in a very friendly village and the owners are very nice people."

    We visited The Village Inn several times and it is very good. On our last day of our stay we had lunch in The Granby and it was the best meal of our holiday, both for quality and for value, yes, 11 out of 10 for everything. and highly recommended.

  • "Wardrobes were inadequate."

    Downstairs smelt of dogs. Very good route centre for visiting this lovely part of Britain. Excellent restaurants.

  • "Problems with the boiler from day one."

    no hot water and numerous engineer visits interrupted the holiday. These problems persisted through the whole holiday, when we left the property the boiler had shut down. What was more disappointing is i raised a complaint with Sykes after we returned from holiday and have not heard back from you at all to even acknowledge this let alone deal with the specific points raised. This clearly demonstrates your lack of focus on customer outcomes and which is why i am unlikely to use Sykes again

  • "Chestnut cottage has everything you need for your stay including some of the items that previous reviews suggested such as egg cups and scissors."

    All the contact with the owners was very easy. The locals are all very friendly and welcoming - do go into Carrs the Grocers it is bigger than it looks and stocks lots of different products including local beers and cheeses. Good sausages from the butchers too. Village Inn does good food - big portions and you can take your dog in too. We also joined in the quiz night on Monday night which we enjoyed - you get sausage and chips as part of the quiz entry. Running Fox is a must whether you go to the one in Longframlington or others in Felton or Shilbottle. The latter is in the Farriers Arms and made an ideal breakfast stop on the way to Alnmouth. Coast line is all beautiful - we enjoyed the typical English beach activities as well as bird watching and kayaking. Still lots more to explore. Rothbury is also a pretty town with some good walks around it through forest and moor. Longframlington makes an ideal location for coast and inland walks with everything you need a few minutes walk away.

  • "Lovely cottage but a few things could be better."

    Would be nice to have eggcups, washing up liquid and a new pair of scissors. The toilet seat came off upstairs for no reason and the upstairs toilet is really hard to flush. You have to be out the hot tub by 10pm which would put me off going in the summer as clearly there is an issue with the neighbours and noise in the garden.

    The cottage was spotlessly clean , the beds where very comfortable , the kitchen was lovely with all the utensils you need to cook a meal not that you will with 2 good pubs down the road . The hot tub was just what we needed after a day of walking with the dogs . All in all a very pleasant stay would definitely recommend

  • "We had a lovely holiday at Chestnut Cottage."

    On arrival everywhere was spotlessly clean and we had everything we needed including a welcome basket and a bottle of prosecco chilling in the fridge which was a nice touch. The hot tub was amazing, the beds were comfortable and the owners got straight back to us if we had any queries. Our only feedback is that it would have been nice to have a table and chairs outside and access to a bbq but otherwise it was perfect. The village of Longframlington is a lovely little village with pubs, bakery, butchers and corner shop all within walking distance. We ate at both local pubs and would definitely recommend. The bakery was gorgeous, a must visit. Alnwick is about a 20 minute drive away and we visited many other towns, villages and beaches during the week and although some places were closed due to Covid we still had a good time.

  • "We had a fantastic 5 days at Chestnut cottage (myself, my wife, our 2 boys (8 and 9) and our French bulldog) between Christmas and New year."

    The property was a real home from home for us. Lovely comfy couches to chill on after long days out, modern kitchen with everything you could need, 3 decent sized bedrooms with very comfy beds, and secure garden for Dougie to mooch around to his hearts content. The hot tub was a real luxury, and a huge hit with the boys at the end of every day (we've had to fend off several requests for us to get a hot tub at home on the back of it). The viallge itself, although small has plenty of amenities (shop, pub, restaurant, newsagent, cafe, butchers, even a play park). We had some lovely meals in the Village Inn, which was very welcoming to our boys and dog and made chips like I remember my Nan making! We also got picnic from the Running Fox to take out with us (They had amazing pies and the best sausage rolls). We were well located for many days out all within a short drive, Seahouses, Alnwick, Bamburgh, Holy Island, Newcastle. We even ventured in to Edinburgh one day. The view of Bamburgh castle from the beach with the sun setting over it was stunning. Owners were also very helpful, and suggested good places for us to visits that we wouldn't have known about (Duridge Bay Country Park). Overall our stay at Chestnut cottage was a real treat in a beautiful area of the country. We will definitely be looking for a return visit.
