  • "Very lovely cottage we loved it was perfect for our four dogs."

    The owners are a very lovely .

  • "The Forge is beautifully converted and comfy but very noisy."

    If you are inside with all the windows closed it's fine but with last weeks weather outside and with windows open it is very noisy due to the traffic. It is ideally located for exploring Northumbria. We didn't bring our dogs but we're glad we didn't. The garden as such is far too small for 4 dogs..However our main gripe was the lack of any information pack on eg local dog walks, buses the fish and chip van coming on Friday things to see in the area where the pub is ( we didn't go in that direction for 4 days) and better info on the appliances to name a few. Yes there is the Internet but written information packs are worth their weight in gold especially local dog walks as the garden is so small. Also due to the hot weather a fan would have been useful. We were also amazed that the owners didn't get in touch at all. The welcome gifts were lovely but as we don't drink coffee or wine the information pack would have been of more use!!!! The fish and chips from the Flying Friar were excellent though. Having said that we had a great holiday saw loads and landed on Inner Farne which was amazing.

  • "The Forge is a perfect base within close proximity to many of the tourist attractions and lovely beaches Northumberland has to offer."

    The cottage is clean , well equipped and tastefully decorated throughout. After busy days we spent our evenings relaxing in the comfort of the cottage enjoying the welcome treats left by the owner. Thankyou !!

  • "Lovely very clean and comfortable cottage."

    Bed very comfortable, shower very good. Lovely interesting village, One thing missing was would have loved information / maps /leaflets on local walks. Oven hob was difficult to fathom out but got there in the end. Would have loved satellite TV but very few cottages provide this so was not expected.

  • "Great location to stay."

    Very clean and not at all cluttered (as some places can be) Lovely welcome gift which was a lovely touch We don’t do much cooking as after all it’s a break but good to know that on Thursdays a pizza van parked outside pm and Fridays a fish and chip van. We didn’t have pizza but the fish and chips were delicious. Would definitely stay again ( May even try owners other holiday let “Rose Cottage”)

  • "Little that be done about it, but the property is far from private."

    .Coaches parked on the front at 7.45, locals stopping for the paper/food shop opposite, dog walkers and a fish and chip van mean you kept the curtains drawn. Some sort of shed at the rear for storing cleaning equipment would be our thought and at least some basic instructions on operating electrical equipment and a pamphlet on local recommendations for the nearest/best pub restaurant, petrol station, chemists etc etc. We spent time understanding the oven/hob and the owners helped by telephone when we gave up (an induction hob that we had never used before) That all said it was a pleasure to stay here and a base in Longhorsley meant you covered the county comfortably. A pleasant, well equipped and convenient cottage.

  • "Very well equipped, ideal central location, off road parking a bonus."

    Out door space for dogs, although not used by us, we own an escape artist of a dog, ideal for most dogs. Would definitely visit The Forge again. Welcome gift was lovely and much appreciated.

    Cery clean, good enclosed patio area, no problem with wifi The small village of longhorsley is friendly, there is pub and shop across the road from the Forge. Only one niggle the connectivity of tv on some channels dropped. Despite this Would highly definitely recommend and book again

  • "Lovely property and well designed with layout and fully fitted out with all the essentials making your stay very comfortable."

    Location was perfect for beaches and town visits and in particular for Burgham Horse Trials... a favourite visit for us. Slightly disappointed it was situated on a very busy main junction with lots traffic noise which was intrusive when sitting in the garden.

  • "Great location, good to have our 4 dogs welcomed, clean and attractive property."

    Various 'take out vans' park close by every week, with the fish and chips on a friday super good! Small convenience shop and sandwich outlet across the road is a distinct bonus. We stayed for 6 wks due to a house move and the owner, Ian, was particularly friendly and accommodating throughout. Would definitely recommend this lovely property for a 'great location' holiday.

About the location

FELTON

Alnwick 10 miles.

The delightful village of Felton is set in rural Northumberland, between Morpeth to the south and Alnwick to the north. The village has a shop, coffee shop, pub and restaurant, and is just 10 miles from Alnwick, with its Castle and now famous Garden, which features Europe's largest cascading water feature, an enormous tree house, a rose garden and an ornamental walled garden. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the "Harry Potter" films! Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
