Reviewed by Julie5.0★Nov 2023 "A beautiful little cottage warm and cosy and on the outskirts of Bamburgh, we really enjoyed our stay here , plenty of room for the 2 of us , kitchen was great for utensils, make sure you bring teabags , sugar etc as there was only salt and pepper in the cupboard." Reviewed by Elaine4.7★Nov 2023 "After being let down by another holiday cottage firm at last minute (literally cancelled stay the day before we were due to arrive), we used Sykes cottages to book Castle View." Nicky from Sykes was really helpful getting in touch with the owner to see if they would accommodate us at such short notice. Payment and confirmation were really well handled as was the information sent via email. The cottage itself was really cosy, loved the log burner. Kitchen was really well equipped and decorating throughout was nice. It's just over a mile to walk into Bamburgh and it's down a lane with no pavement so care needs to be taken when walking in. We tended to take the car down to Bamburgh then explore from there. All in all a great week away. Reviewed by Karen4.1★Sep 2023 "Had a lovely holiday, very peaceful, lovely views and the cottage had everything we needed and the shower was hot." Only downside was that we think the people before us had a dog and the property hadn't been properly hoovered/swept so had to hoover on arrival but don't let this put you off as we would book again. Reviewed by Heather4.4★Aug 2023 "Fabulous location." This quiet, clean and well placed holiday home offers everything you could need for an enjoyable stay. So nice to find a property with a comfortable and large bed! Smart TV was a nice surprise too. As mentioned in a previous review our only disappointment with the property was the hot water temperature. A hot shower would have been nice! Reviewed by Dawn4.4★May 2023 "This cottage is in a beautiful location." It’s has a welcoming modern interior with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Previous reviews reported a musty smell in the hall and the water for the shower not being hot enough - we would agree with this feedback but it didn’t interfere greatly with our stay. Thank you for your feedback. I have had a new shower bar fitted in the cottage and disappointed to hear the temperature was not hot enough. I will get the plumber back to check it out. Im pleased you enjoyed your stay at Glororum and hope to see you back in Northumberland soon. Property Owner Reviewed by Jeremy3.8★Apr 2023 "It was roomier than expected." Lots of utensils but struggled with the cooker for one meal until we worked out the fan oven was the most trustworthy option. The location was fantastic with wonderful views of the castle. Reviewed by John Andrew3.8★Apr 2023 "TV reception very bad understand safety rules but shower luke warm" Thank you for your for your feedback. I will look into them and I hope to see you back at Glororum sometime soon. Property Owner Reviewed by Garry4.4★Mar 2023 "There was a damp smell in the cottage entrance." We have used your company for years and this was the first time the cottage wasn’t ready we arrived- twin beds were not zipped together. No loo roll, no bin bags, no lightbulbs in 2nd bedroom. The light at the exterior f cottage entrance was out for the whole week. Great kitchen, great parking and fantastic location on a positive note. I am sorry to hear the cottage was not up to my standard when you arrived. If you had contacted the office we would have come up straight away and got all the things sorted for you. I hope you enjoyed the fizz and chocolates and we see you again at Glororum in the future Property Owner Reviewed by Andrea3.8★Dec 2022 "Beautiful cottage, amazing views and had everything we needed" Jul 2021 "Castle View is in a good location just a few minutes from Bamburgh village and beach."
