  • "I've had a lovely few days in this comforatble, and beautifully decorated cottage."

    I can highly recommend it. It is more spacious than it appears from the outside and great that there's off-road parking. The cottage is well equipped and I've been very cosy and warm here in pre-Christmas isolation. You are just a short walk from the Northumberland Arms for an evening meal or from the delightful Running Fox Cafe in Felton for breakfast or afternoon tea. The owner lives nearby and is very welcoming and helpful. All in all, a great place to settle in for a holiday in this amazing part of the country.

    Thank you for your great review. We hope you have a happy Christmas with your family and a safe journey home. Property Owner

  • "This little cottage has been beautifully refurbished to provide a comfortable place to stay for a base to tour the surrounding areas of Northumberland."

    Vivienne the owner checked on our arrival that we had everything we needed and when the weather got colder checked that we were warm enough, the cottage had a lovely heating system so no problems there. A comfy king size bed ensured we had a good sleep in this quiet area. It is in walking distance of the Northumberland Arms for a meal if you fancy eating out, and also near the river Coquet for a pleasant walk.

    Thank you for your lovely review. We hope you got home before Storm Arwen arrived. Property Owner

  • "What a fantastic find!"

    This cottage is beautifully furnished, clean and welcoming. The wine, tea bags, biscuits were all welcome coupled with the cosy feel of the cottage made it extra special. The lovely bedrooms with nice new bedding were lovely, even our dog loved it. Great location in the village coupled with a lovely pub just made our holiday extra special, we will definitely be booking again. A big thank you to Vivian and Stephen for being a lovely hosts.
