  • "A charming and comfortable cottage with all required for a stay away from home."

    Well appointed with new equipment and facilities. Immaculately clean which is a credit to the owners/managers. The cottage is well situated for visiting the many attractions in beautiful Northumberland being sited on a main route. My dog and I had a lovely time.

    There was even wine chocolates and coffee waiting for us, everything was to the highest standard right down to the towels. We had such a fab time we have booked again for next year, can't wait to go back. It was central lots of little places, we would highly recommend this lovely cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage, very well presented and equipped."

    Extremely clean and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the week here. The cottage is on a cross road of 2 main roads and despite triple glazing u can still hear traffic noise although after full days put it didn't interrupt our sleep. Its an ideal location for exploring the surrounding area.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm not sure why you needed to know about the septic tank before you arrived, as I am not sure how that would have had any impact on your holiday. It's easy enough to find the property on the internet and to see that it sits next to the A697. I shall take into account your comment about the need for extra furniture, but it's a balance between space and facilities in a small property. Kind regards, Ian Property Owner

    Despite that it was a very comfortable cottage

    Hi, thanks for your feedback. The problem with any small cottage is that one is always making a compromise between providing space and providing facilities. The last time I totted it up over 80% of our guests have dogs with them (a few have brought cats, and we've even had a parrot and an African pygmy hedgehog staying), and that means that we have made the decision to err on the side of space rather than stuff so that owners and their pets can co-exist. The chest of drawers was taking up space, as was the blanket box we used to have, so we decided to give more space rather than less. We don't have the property re-photographed every time we make a change. I'm not sure how these two issues have caused a 25% loss in feedback score, but I guess it's the problem with Sykes using a scoring system within their feedback module - one persons 7 out of 10 will be another persons 5 out of 10. I must continue to remind myself that there's absolutely no objectivity in the system, nor any ability to compare one person's score with someone else's score. Kind regards, Ian Property Owner

    The cottage is ideally situated between Alnwick and Rothbury, great for visiting Cragside. Enclosed garden with four foot fence, great for our small dog. Only one (very small) consideration for improvement: every other cottage that we have stayed at provided a pint of milk on arrival. Not a massive gripe (the wine was very much appreciated) but we specifically didn't bring a bottle of milk as it's always been provided before.

  • "A lovely well-appointed property situated perfectly for exploring the area."

    It made a change to stay at a pets-welcome property that wasn't scruffy or tired. The attention to detail is lovely. We knew it was on a main junction from both the description and the map, so don't understand why anyone would say the proximity to the road was unexpected. Also, the windows are triple-glazed. Parking was a little higgeldy piggeldy when others were coming in or out at the same time, but the designated parking bay is clear and secure, plus the gate provided extra safety for the dog with the road. Our only disappointment was the shower/bath. There are no grab rails for safety, the bath is very deep for stepping in and out of, and running a bath is a challenge as the shower screen and door are in the way. We had to prop the door open and then couldn't reach the taps without stepping into the bath. Also, no grab rails on the bath either so a struggle to get up. But we had a lovely, quiet stay, and would recommend to others with pets. (We took a cat and a dog.)

    What a fantastic , beautiful, well equipped cottage. High end finishes throughout. A massive comfy bed with lovely linen and big fluffy towels. When we arrived the power was off due to a storm. The owners could not do enough for us from offering to pay for a meal at a local pub and move us to another house. The neighbours were so lovely and came round offering help and candles! Fortunately the power came back on quickly and we didn’t have to move. The cottage was spotlessly clean and no hint of any dog smells. The garden was really secure for the dogs. Ideally situated for lots of local beaches, Alnwick very close and if you have a National Trust card Cragside house is only 3 miles from the house. Lots of local dog walks nearby. The road was no issue at all and we slept soundly every night and it’s so dark you can see all the stars. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise too!.

The cottage was as advertised, and very well kept, and clean. The welcome pack was above and beyond what we have normally received. There was milk, sugar, coffee, chocolates, and wine.

  • "Absolutely fantastic little cottage in a great location!"

    Don't let the size put you off from booking - this place has been so well planned and thought out it has everything you need! It was perfect for us and our 4 dogs. The kitchen has all you need for cooking decent meals and plenty of room to prepare - we had a full cooked roast with ease! The sitting area is cosy and the log burner is a lovely treat after long days out walking and exploring. Upstairs the master bed is huge and extremely comfy within a lovely room and great bathroom too. Triple glazing throughout which helped with being next to the road, however we hardly noticed any traffic anyway. A gravel fenced garden was perfect for the dogs to mooch about in and allocated parking for two cars was convenient too. The owners went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel welcome and ensure we had a good stay. The welcome pack and ready supply of fuel for the fire was outstanding. Recommendations of local attractions and places to walk the dogs were given and we tried them all! We would 100% recommend Rose Cottage and will certainly be booking again! Thank you so much for making our holiday one to remember!

  • "The owner was extremely helpful and phoned a few days before to check that we were still looking forward to going to Northumberland."

    He emailed details of events in the area to us and made sure that we had his contact details In case we needed him for anything. He said it would be no trouble if we did contact him but as it happened we had no need to. Rose Cottage was the cleanest cottage that we have ever rented. Many thanks to Ian the owner.

  • "Rose Cottage was a fabulous and extremely cosy cottage for a stay exploring Northumberland."

    The location is perfect for exploring the moors, coast and local towns. The cottage was beautifully furnished, very comfortable and felt quite extravagant. The fire was perfect for the winter evenings, although we did have to turn off the heating in order to have the fire on, as the little cottage became like a sauna! There were excellent facilities provided in the kitchen, with a wonderful welcome pack of chocolates, milk, wine, fresh eggs from the owners chickens and some lovely coffee. We took our two dogs with us, and the little enclosed garden was perfect for them to snoof about in. The owners popped by the day we arrived to, very kindly, bring us some more firewood and coal, and recommended lots of dog friendly places to visit, and showed us how to use the heating. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. If I had to say something slightly negative, it would be the busy A road adjacent to the cottage was rather noisy in the mornings and the lorries rushing past woke us up - but it was nice to be up early and get out and do things! I would definitely return to Rose, and have already recommended the cottage to family and friends! Thank you for a lovely stay.

    The garden area was great for the dogs to chill out as well. Whilst the proximity to the busy road is a slight drawback it is also makes it very easy to access the local facilities. Would definitely book again
