    “Very well appointed and a great base”

    Our first time in Northumberland and this was a great place to base ourselves for Hadrian's Wall to Lindisfarne and the coast. It was cosy and very well appointed, with lots of extras to make it feel like home, such as the tea and cake on arrival, the rows of books and DVDs and of course the fire. We needed it even in August. The other thing to recommend this cottage is the village itself.

    Our first time in Northumberland and this was a great place to base ourselves for Hadrian's Wall to Lindisfarne and the coast. It was cosy and very well appointed, with lots of extras to make it feel like home, such as the tea and cake on arrival, the rows of books and DVDs and of course the fire. We needed it even in August. The other thing to recommend this cottage is the village itself. You have everything you need from the paper shops, very well stocked grocer, the butcher, the pub and the pub restaurant. We loved doing the shopping in the morning and having a chat with the very friendly staff. Definitely recommended. Be aware there's no wifi and iffy phone reception, but you can get reception at the pub across the road if you need it.
