  • "Lovely property, clean and comfortable."

    Thoughtful touches included a full log basket, cake, milk in the fridge and very snuggly bathrobes. The location is good, close to A1 but not too close. The Berwick coast is spectacular.

    Owner popped by to see if we were happy. Nice base to visit surrounding area and far enough away to be secluded. Would recommed.

  • "Wonderful place - quiet, well equiped, plenty of room."

    Can get chilly so light the fire sooner rather than later to warm the place up! Surrounding area has it all, coast, beaches, history in bucketsfull, good food and drink. If asked for an improvement, we'd suggest a mirror on the hedge going out because it's quite a blind pull-out onto what is a bus route. We'd happily go back anytime!

  • "A lovely little cottage, very quiet, in pleasant farming countryside."

    We greatly enjoyed walking on the quiet roads and byways. If we had to mention a downside at all, it would be the very subdued lighting which made reading in the evenings very difficult for those with less than perfect eyesight.

  • "Our holiday cottage was fabulous, it had everything we needed."

    I think you should update your photos on the website, your current ones really don’t do it justice. The extra touches were lovely on arrival, fresh roses, lovely cake, milk in the fridge and tea, coffee and sugar.

    Generous amount of coal and logs, tea, coffee, cake, milk and flowers were appreciated. A good base to tour the areas of Northumberland and the Borders. Our dog liked it so much we had trouble getting her into the car when it was time to come home!

  • "We've spent an enjoyable, relaxing week in The Lodge before returning to work."

    The cottage is a delight is ideal for a couple (and one small dog). The cake, tea, coffee, and milk on arrival was very welcome and the kitchen is equipped with everything we needed for the week. The area is very quiet and has many walks to explore, including the estate and farm which are beautifully maintained. There is lots to explore within a 30 minute drive in all directions. The local pub at Paxton was closed for most of our stay but we look forward to visiting it at some point because we want to go back again!

  • "It was an utter delight and we will certainly be returning."

    Linda the owner was so kind, extremely obliging and very helpful. She made us feel very welcome and said if there was anything we needed to let her know. Everything we could possibly need was there in the cottage. It was just like being at home as we wanted for nothing, the only difference was we have never felt more at peace than we did there. It was totally calming as it was so quiet, yet within a bus ride from town 5 mile away. There were nice quiet walks especially through Broadmeadows Estate which is kept immaculate and is set with beautiful daffodils and blossom trees and the roads near the lodge were so quiet. I was out for around 2 hours one day and only saw 4 cars. Other times we just lounged in the garden where we had sun 6 days out of 7 in March, I don't know if the owner had planned that for us but it wouldn't have surprised us. We would highly recommend The Lodge to anyone and everyone. We enjoyed it so much more as we were able to take our little dog with us and she had the freedom of the garden to roll around in, we were all very happy and cant wait to go back again.

    The extra luxuries the owner left in the cottage were much appreciated. Enough tea bags/coffee and sugar to last a few days., to name a few. The two dressing gowns left were a nice touch, which we have never experienced before and the cake left was divine! The only thing we would mention, is the mattress was a little uncomfortable, but we still slept ok. We never usually return to the same cottage twice. But would definitely return to The Lodge.

  • "From the moment we entered this lovely property, there was a sense of peace and tranquility The Lodge, perhaps 150 years old, though we never asked, was so comfortable and such a lovely base for one week in sunny July 2018."

    The bed gave us solid sleeps, and the living room large and comfortable. After several rental cottages we were so happy to find a straight forward and easy to use television, and in the kitchen, a microwave and cooker we did not need a degree in nuclear physics to work. Happy to find a washing machine, tumble dryer and an iron and board. There was also a good sized freezer, on top of the fridge Shower was straight forward, with a powerful water pressure. The garden, was private and mostly laid to lawn, and we were happy when Linda arrived with padded garden chairs. There is a country lane next to the property, but so little used it did not bother us, and as a matter of fact, a deer jumped out into the road one morning as we were setting off, just about 100 yards from the Lodge. Also,there is a fenced drive, leading toward the big house maybe half a mile away, and apart from the sheep in the fields, we regularly saw hares running about. Everything we wanted was there in the property, and even instructions for recycling were understandable. Our excursions included Mellerstain House with a variety of installations dotted throughout the grounds, the wonderful Alnwick Castle gardens, especially the Poison Garden, which has been on our to do list for many years, and the actual town of Berwick on Tweed, where we spent much of our days either on the Elizabethan Ramparts or looking at the wonderfully signed Lowry trail ( L.S.Lowry holidayed in the town for many years ) but I must mention the free parking in the town ( just take along a parking disc ) and a special mention goes to Berwick Boat Trips from the quayside ( free parking there, too ). Depending upon the tides, their trips go either out to sea, or up the river Tweed, and ours, out into the estuary, provided lots of lovely seals, popping their heads out of the water to see what was going on. Magical..... To summarise, we had a lovely week at the Lodge, the property and the friendliness of Linda were exemplary. Thank you so much.
