  • "Beautiful chalet with all the amenities."

    Super comfy king size bed, huge wardrobe spaces, fully fitted kitchen, awesome shower! Ultra dog safe garden with a bonus of a secure field too. The area is fabulous and there's easy access to the coast. Would definitely recommend a stay here and I think we'll be back too!

    . I’ve already booked another week in April. This place is so peaceful, quiet and helps someone like me have a stress free well needed break with my children. I love this place and so glad that I found it. The beds are so comfortable and having the washing machine in there makes a hell of a difference! Fantastic place. See you again soon

  • "Everything would have been five star but for lack of matching plates/glasses at the property."

    We had friends over for a meal and found it annoying because of this. It did not spoil our holiday enjoyment however and we would return but would suggest that this matter could be easily remedied.

  • "This is our second visit to Holme Cottages."

    The enclosed garden area and the field next door were perfect for our Springer. Lots of space to run around and socialise with dogs staying in the other properties. The dog friendly beaches in the area are wonderful. Wansbeck is spacious and we loved being able to relax outside with the stunning view. The village has good amenities and everyone was so friendly.

  • "The facilities were basic, we had stayed at the same lodge last Sept and made excuses for some of the facilities but not twice."

    There was only one loo roll for two persons for a week, there were no pot lids for the pots, the cutlery was poor and very basic. There was no coffee percolator. The plates were bare minimum. Little things maybe but not expected in a Sykes approved cottage. The next door people had the same complaints. The lodge was clean, the comfort was great and the little South facing garden ideal for a dog or barbecue or sitting out with a glass of wine enjoying the weather. Time for the owners to step up!

    we where lucky enough to have five days of sunny weather which gave full appreciation. The property was well equiped and cleaned to good standard. the patio garden area is fully enclosed providing a safe environment for our two dogs. we had access to large field next to property to walk dogs which was very much appreciated. I would fully reccomend this property to anyone who appreciates the beauty of the countryside and the natural environment.

  • "A much needed break from the situation with Covid and we were lucky with the weather."

    We know the area well but did not venture too far due to the enormous amount of people at all our favourite locations - never seen it like that before over many years - cars parked on verges etc partly blocking roads - folk camping in tents, caravans and mobile homes at Druridge Bay - we did not stay long. Not surprised that Covid cases are on the increase in the area. However our holiday was great and will certainly be back.

  • "This was our second stay at the property and we enjoyed it very much."

    Great rural location and quiet,when you live in a city it's nice to have that stillness. The property was immaculately clean on arrival, kitchen utensils were provided. There was a bottle of wine on arrival. Everything worked as it should pretty much,except TV you had to manually switch on/off. My mother found the the settees being too low off the ground which caused discomfort. I'd suggest for a singular armchair to be provides with a high back and supporting arms. It would help people with mobility issues. It was a fantastic stay and pleasant experience.

  • "The Lodge was clean & tidy."

    Bright & welcoming and the enclosed garden was a bonus. Agree with other reviews the settees were not the comfiest which did spoil our relaxing evenings to be honest. The views were spectacular and was lovely waking up to the many birds fluttering. Overall a clean bright lodge and would recommend.

    Brilliant washing machine, dishwasher they even provided a bottle of wine, tea, coffee and sugar, hand wash. Only slight niggle was the squeaky cutlery draw!!!! But that’s easily fixed. It just drives you mad after a few days.

  • "The cottage was excellent in every way and we couldn't have asked for more."

    The location was excellent - very quiet with wonderful views and within easy reach of all the places we wanted to visit. We had excellent neighbours who also had dogs with them. Our only slight quibbles would normally have been handled by speaking to the owner &/or filling in a log book before we left but their absence were two of the quibbles. We didn't really have any urgent need to speak to the owner but did try to call a couple of times and just reached voicemail on each of them. It would have been nice to have been able to thank them in person & to leave feedback for the next occupants.

    Would it be at all possible to mention this point to the owners of cottages. Having said that , the owner of this property was most helpful and obliging and the village where it was located was delightful Would it be possible to include information as to the suitability for older visitors in your cottage details ?

  • "This is the third time we have stayed in lodge style accommodation and have to say this stay was the best of the three."

    I am guessing the lodge is fairly new which likely gives it an advantage but everything was great, the size, the facilities in the lodge, the location, the views, etc. all were great and if we were exploring this part of Northumberland again we would definitely stay there. Only one minor gripe was that the lodge has a security alarm fitted which is great when you leave the property whilst exploring but at night the PIR in the bedrooms trigger at the slightest movement which lights up the bedrooms for a few seconds. Not a lot that they can do about this other than put the alarms on the bedroom windows rather than having PIR in the bedrooms. If you want exact locations for the lodge as it is not on the main road here are the SatNav co-ordinates 55°17'40.0"N 1°48'10.3"W or 55.294431, -1.802860. Per the hosts' directions, better to drive into Longframlington village and turn left onto Rothbury Road and then turn left into Villa Lane (off Rothbury Road) especially if coming from a southerly direction.

    Beautiful surroundings great views its a very peaceful place. The lodge has its own very well kept enclosed garden great for a dog to run around in. Wonderful large bathroom with a separate bath and large shower the only thing to let it down was the ill fitting toilet seat that moved when you sat on it quite scary when your not expecting it. Loved the open plan living dinning and kitchen area. I would suggest new sofas though as they are very low and felt like i was sitting on the floor not very comfortable at all. Fantastic place in a fantastic area very central to all places, we would defiantly book again.

    Greeted with a bottle of wine, pity that there was only one tea cloth for the week, half a toilet roll, no salt and pepper, the windows in need of a clean. Plenty of towels in the bathroom but rock hard from drying outdoors. A heavy duvet made even hotter as they were covered in flannelette covers. The television had the habit of turning itself on, disconcerting when you returned from an outing to find it on. Having said all that we had a wonderful holiday in Northumberland one we will never forget.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in the cottage."

    It's a new cottage with a good finish. Gorgeous views. The private enclosed garden was perfect for being able to let the dogs run around. It is very close to some sheep though, so take care if your dogs like ours, would love a chase with them! The only reason why I marked it down is that the curtains are so thin, we were awake at the crack of dawn each day! So if you are susceptible to being waken by the sun, take an eye mask.
