"Just what we needed for our short break with our two Golden Retriever’s."
A warm and cosy west-facing property, where we enjoyed watching the sunset on the veranda.
Outside, plenty of space to park the car, a lovely green area in front, which was ideal first thing in the morning and last thing at night to allow the dogs to do their business. If you wanted a slightly longer walk, the adjacent field had a path around its perimeter, which has been cut. It was well drained and relatively dry considerably it was the end of October. There was also a lovely tarmac walk down the lane towards the valley if your preferred something firmer.
Indoors - top spec. Loved it! We didn’t get chance to do too much cooking, but there appeared plenty of utensils for the two of us. Thank you for the complimentary bottle of wine, which was enjoyed by hubby - the only wine-drinker in the party.
There was enough space to put our dog’s baskets and their toys.
Have given 4 stars for comfort, as the sofa was rather low to the ground with very soft cushions, so not as comfortable as you’d expect. Welcome additions were the two high-back chairs, which I preferred to use.
Wi-if was weak and kept dropping out, so had to use my own data to keep in touch with messages I had to pick up relating to an important event I was attending during our stay.
Overall, we were extremely pleased with this accommodation and will definitely visit again and will recommend to our friends and family.
Plenty of attention to detail and located on a lovely village with a dog-walking field, great corner shop, butchers, hairdressers and excellent dog-friendly, welcoming pubs with an excellent menu.
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beamish."
Clean, bright, warm chalet with gorgeous views and sunsets. Central for exploring Northumberland. Local shop is brilliant too. (There are now a couple of high backed chairs for those who do not like soft sofa).
"We had a very enjoyable holiday."
Longframlington is central to the area we wanted to explore - half an hour from the coast, about an hour from Lindisfarne, and with National Trust and English Heritage properties not far away. We could be on Warkworth dunes every morning with our dog by 7.00an (getting up at 5.00, which we enjoyed). We walked on Simonside, at Holystone Forest, on Lindisfarne, visited Belsay Hall, Cragside and Wallington, spent a hot afternoon at Longframlington Gardens, and another at Brinkburn Priory, and enjoyed lunches at the Anglers Arms. The cottage was clean - very important in these pandemic days - and had what we needed, though we were out most of the time. The kitchen was minimally equipped and I had to use a bit of ingenuity to cook, but we managed. The sofa is very uncomfortable - even our lurcher, a sofa enthusiast, would not go on it - but we had not gone on holiday to spend time sitting down.
"I asked for a fragrance free chalet as I have chemical sensitivities, the toilet paper was fragranced, in the cupboard under tge dink were bold washing pods and flash lemon wipes also fairy liquid all of which give off a scent, luckily I took my own, which were unscented and I also took all my own bed linen and towels etc, it was a lovely place apart from the scents which caused me some problems."
"What a lovely place this was to stay in."
It was tranquil, peaceful and beautiful surroundings. My only critique was the sofa, it was very uncomfortable and very low to get up from as myself and my husband have hip problems.
"Excellent accommodation, only minor gripe being the uncomfortable sofa."
Other than that we were very pleased.
"First time I have used Sykes."
I took my two dogs on a mini break to Northumberland and chose Breamish cottage at Long Framlington. I was more than pleased with the choice. Superbly situated modern cottage, very well furnished and extremely clean and tidy. Could not fault in any way. Woould highly reccomend and will certainly look to enjoy a holiday there in the future.
"The lodges were in a very quite location and plenty of space outside."
There is a grass area in front of the 1 bed lodges, ideal for walking your dog beofre setting off for the day.
"Our only criticism regarding the facilities is that there was no broom in the cupboard and we had to use the hoover if we wanted to sweep the floor."
"The bed was a little uncomfortable and there was a strange noise during ..."
The bed was a little uncomfortable and there was a strange noise during nighttime which sounded like it was coming from the heating
"We had a very enjoyable 3 days at Breamish."
The welcoming bottle of wine set the scene for our stay. The cottage is in an ideal location for visiting Rothbury/Cragside and the Northumberland coast and the surrounding countryside is very gentle but calming.
"The chalet was perfect, spotlessly clean and had a very well equipped kitchen area."
Central heating was really effective and almost instant. From the front there are gorgeous views across the valley, and on the horizon we would watch some amazing sunsets - very quiet location- friendly folk around - short walk to small village and short drive to Alnwick, Seahouses etc
"The log cabin was wonderful, far exceeding any of the photos shown."
Ideal for our dogs with plenty of grass/ field to enjoy a good walk and play about.
Immaculately clean with all facilities required.
A very peaceful location with a small village a short walk up the lane. Great area for exploring Northumberland will definitely return.
"The pictures don’t do these properties justice , just having the large garden area in front makes a lot of difference with our well behaved dogs , very pleased overall and could definitely recommend these to dog owners."
"Good property in a great location."
The setting and space around the property were great. We will definitely visit again.
"A great lodge in a good location."
"The lodge was very nice views out of the lodge were good but, the settee was so uncomfortable totally worn out, we will not return and also you can enter at 3-00 pm not 5-pm as stated the owner seemed as though he did not want to speak ."
"Well equipped chalet with everything needed for a great holiday stay, (views included), in a lovely area with lots of places to visit and great local facilities."
Recommend a visit to the village inn, (the food is lovely), but it's a bit more than a 10min walk as stated on the Sykes listing!
"We appreciated the bottle of wine and tea and coffee."
The setting would be great for dark sky watching if we had had clear skies .I would have liked a hook in the bathroom and perhaps some more information on local eating establishments but overall we really enjoyed our stay .
"A very quiet area."
While the cottage was adequate there were some limitations....lack of seating in the small lounge. Only one two seater very uncomfortable sofa. The bed required some additional linen such as a fitted mattress cover. No designated braai area and although a large bit of grass in front of the cottages was unsure if we could braai there. Did not see anyone from the main house which was assumed was where the owners lived. Oherwise adequate but three nights was sufficient. Rothbury is 15 minutes away and a very pretty little town.
"The holiday home was good in general it had lovely views and plenty of space inside for easy holiday living, but unfortunately the sofa was much too low and lumpy for comfort and the only other seating was wooden table chairs."
A new sofa would have made the holiday so much more comfortable and enjoyable.
"Utterly beautiful holiday home."
So well equipped. The photos don't do it justice. Highly recommend to all. Lovely couple who own the cottage, great for contact. Gorgeous views and lovely rooms. Will definitely be coming back.

"Superb property in stunning location
Superb property in stunning location
Great for dogs as lots of outside space and a field to exercise them in
Everything that we needed in the property was supplied
Will definitely return
"This is a newly built cabin, we were quite possibly the first guests to use it."
it is well equipped and quite comfortable, but a few "homely " touches would be nice, for example some hooks in the bathroom to hang your robe. Similar in the kitchen area to hang tea towels and oven gloves. we did fine the lighting to be strong and harsh, so a couple of stand alone lamps to allow more subtle lighting
