  • "As you can see, our feedback is varied."

    So, I will explain. As we wrote in the visitors book, we had a wonderful week. However there were a few issues. Cleanliness, we felt that was quite basic, no real attention to detail. Comfort, Good, although we did agree with the comment in the visitors book, that the main bedroom should be the one with the single beds in as the boiler is noisy. Facilities & Maintenance, Only 2 saucepan lids, & one of those the knob fell off, the towel hook by the sink in the bathroom fell off as did a hook behind the door!! We always carry a screw driver, so my husband fitted them all back on. Very poor water pressure in shower. Other than that, there is enough in the kitchen for anyone to produce a meal!!! Other than our observations, we did have a really good time & would return, the cottage is in the most amazing area, you could spend every day out walking from the property & leave the car parked up!!!

    We are glad that you had a wonderful week in Northumberland, but we're sorry to hear that your husband didn't feel well, owing to his allergy to pet hairs. It is very unfortunate that we had stayed in our cottage that week before you, and had our dog with us, as is pointed out on the Sykes website. She is not allowed upstairs, nor on any of the furniture. As the Cottage is in a remote part of Northumberland (part of its great attraction) the water supply is from a spring, and sometimes the result is that the pressure in the shower is not as high as might be expected in a more built-up area. Thank you for your other observations on our Cottage, and we are very glad to note that you “did have a really good time and would return, the Cottage is in the most amazing area you could spend every day out walking from the property, and leave the car parked up”. These are the things that make us feel that our cottage is special, and make a lot of our guests return again and again. Property Owner

    So many interesting places to visit within a short drive, too. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the accommodation very well-equipped. The log burner in the lounge and lovely outside areas make it an ideal place to stay whatever the weather. We had an amazing week!

    Peaceful with wonderful views across the fields and lots of birds, cattle, hares and grouse to watch. Located within easy distance of the holy island of Lindisfarne, Bamburgh Castle etc. Good local restaurants and pubs a few miles away. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here to relax and recharge.

  • "A good sized cottage in a peaceful location with stunning views, wild life and farm animals."

    Everything you could need for comfortable stay provided. A couple minor points, boiler in bedroom a bit noisy, only 2 logs for the wood burner provided, I'm sure just an oversight on this occasion. Ideal base to visit many attractions including Craigside National Trust property, Bamburgh, Holy island, Alnwick, where there is also easy access to 4 charging points for electric cars near McDonald's. Would recommend.

    Hello Peter, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry about the lack of logs and kindling. We have just had a change in cleaning arrangements, and I think I must have forgotten to mention where we kept the wood to our new cleaner. We stayed after you, and noticed a few things that weren't the same as usual, and I'm sure that we can work through it. Thank you for understanding. Judy and Andy Brookfield Property Owner

    A very well equiped and comfortable property. It might be rather off the beaten track for some people and not very near the shops but if you enjoy watching the wildlife you will love seeing the different species of birds that come into the garden to the feeders. We saw hares running around in the field opposite and a young leveret visited the garden on a couple of occasions. Beautiful scenery surrounds the area with the Cheviot Hills in the distance. If you enjoy the quiet life you couldn't ask for more. The coast is fairly near and easy to get to.
