  • "A relaxing week at this lodge in a peaceful country setting."

    The lodge was warm and the beds were very comfortable. Our dog loved the enclosed garden and met new friends on his walk down the lane. The lodge was very clean and we had everything we needed. We hope to come back here in the future.

    The shower screen doors need a little TLC as they were difficult to open and close and came off the runners a few times. But apart from those minor issues a great lodge and first class holiday. The private field next to the lodge was a bonus to walk the dog, she loved it. Thank you to the owners and Sykes.

    Lodge had everything needed - good enclosed garden area, parking for the car etc. We love Longframlington - such a friendly little village with a lovely play park, a welcoming village inn who do great food and a butcher and little shop to keep you going until you can get to Morpeth for bigger shops. This was our 2nd visit and we weren’t disappointed.

    The accommodation was as advertised and very nice. The site / farm was a very nice setting, with lovely views and was very quiet and rural. It was also close enough to the local village to walk to the local stores and pub if needed. Also well positioned to reach many of the local places of interest; such as Hadrian's wall, Holy island and Bamburgh Castle etc.

    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!

    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 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.

  • "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.

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.

    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.

    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.
