    Every amenity and comfort. Owner was very generous and provided us with an array of delights as a warm welcome. Our greyhounds settled here beautifully and enjoyed the enclosed lawned garden and local walks. Cragside and Wallington were beautiful places to visit and only a stones throw away. Handy village store and friendly local pub. I have already recommended the cottage to friends and look forward to a return visit. Many thanks Lizzy

    Lizzy was very helpful and we found a terrific welcome pack on arrival with milk in the fridge, a delicious homemade cake, croissants & jam, truffles, crisps, Prosecco & even treats for the dogs. Thank you Lizzy they were very much appreciated. The fish & chips from the mobile chippy 4 - 7pm on a Friday are not to be missed. They park just opposite the village shop. It is very roomy accommodation with comfortable beds in both bedrooms. Highly recommend a visit to the mining museum at Ashington & of course if you have dogs they will love the beach at Druridge Bay!

  • "The weather was not kind to us but despite this we had a wonderful stay, Lizzy had planned well and torches were available for the blackout due to the storm."

    The welcome pack was the best we have ever seen, delicious chocolates and homemade cake! The boys (Henry and Harvey our dogs) enjoyed their treats to and loved being able to have dog friendly gardens to the front and rear of the property. The area was lovely, a little muddy for local walks but we meandered around the village. The village shop has some essentials but check the opening times, the local pub has delicious food and very friendly staff and we enjoyed hearing about 'The Legend'. The fish van on the Friday was a bonus, meaning we didn't have to cook, though the facilities at the cottage were brilliant. Morpeth has a lovely park to wonder around in with a dog friendly café, closed on a Monday and Tuesday during the winter but they let you use their toilet facilities despite not being open. It was a short stay for us at West Farm but we didn't want to leave. Would love to come back to enjoy the garden and wildlife a little more in the spring and summer. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Thank you so much for your comments; we’re so pleased that you and the boys enjoyed your stay, despite some pretty exciting weather! It was lovely to meet you, and we very much hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    The facilities in the Cottage are first rate and the decor, furnishings, pictures and books are exceptional. The icing on the cake is the owners, Lizzie and Sam, who could not be more helpful and hospitable and go out of their way to welcome guests and make their stay memorable. We have every intention of booking a return visit to this wonderful location in the future.
