  • "Ideal location to explore Northumbria."

    Comfortable cottage in pretty village. Good contact with owner. Cottage was not as clean as we would have liked. Previous visitors had forgotten bread and cake in the bread bin which was all mouldy! Cobwebs in the kitchen over the clock had been mentioned by a previous visitor in May, and were still there on our arrival. Kitchen worktops were dirty and needed cleaning. Carpets needed a good hoover all through the cottage. Dead insects were seen on some window sills and areas near skirting boards needed a good clean, particularly in the lounge. We cleaned the areas we used, like in the kitchen, but not others. Bathroom was clean, with a good selection of towels and shower was efficient. Everywhere was well equipped - kitchen and lounge. Bed in main bedroom was huge - however in our opinion, needed a new mattress. We were left a welcome basket of scones, home made jam, biscuits and milk, plus coffee bags, hot chocolate sachets and tea, which was gratefully received. Local shops met all our needs, although the corner shop was eye-wateringly expensive. Fabulous cakes and snacks in another, with a small cafe attached. The Quiche Lorraine slices were gorgeous. To conclude, we had an amazing week visiting places all around the county, and were comfortable in the cottage.

  • "Cob webs in kitchen over clock and above sliding door."

    Although the double bed is huge and inviting is also uncomfortable. Also the tin opener did not work we had to buy a new one from the corner shop at great expense (£1.99) . The settees are uncomfortable as well. On the whole we had great time and will be back to Northumberland again somewhere!!!

  • "We loved our stay ."

    We were so grateful for the wonderful welcome pack. Very thoughtful. The cottage is homely and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you would want and need.(except a colander) ha ha. Great bed. I have to say the light on the landing blasting in my eyes was uncomfortable as it blinds you for a second , but don't know what the answer would be for seeing the raised landing in the dark . Northumberland is beautiful and so much to do and see. Never get fed up and the cottage is perfect for getting around. Best wishes Pam.

  • "We had a lovely week in this cottage, despite storm Babet raging havoc all around ."

    When we arrived it was just starting to get dark and the lights were on in the kitchen, which made a really welcoming sight, there was milk, bread, cake, wine and a basket with tea, coffee, biscuits and sweets - wow I have stayed in lots of cottages, but never had such a generous welcome gesture. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped, warm, very comfortable throughout, including a huge comfy bed. It is right in the middle of the village with easy access to the lovely places that Northumberland has to offer. Parking on the road directly outside the cottage was never an issue. A really good bus link to nearby Morpeth or on to Newcastle is right on the doorstep. Pam, the owner provided so much useful information - I needed to see a GP and had all the details necessary to make this happen. This cottage was a real ‘home from home’ and with so much more to see in this lovely area, I hope we will be back again in the future. Many thanks Pam for your hospitality.

    How lovely, thank you! I know your holiday wasn't quite how you planned but I'm glad the cottage kept you cosy and the village GP staff helped you heal enough to enjoy bus rides in the floods and gales! And you saw enough of our lovely county to want to return - you will be very welcome! Property Owner

    We loved the welcome goodies, especially the cheese bread. Thank you Pam. It was in a good area for getting around Northumberland. We were lucky the weather was kind to us, even sat on the beach in Alnmouth . I would have scored higher but found the beds a bit uncomfortable for us. We were sad to leave.

    Thanks for the mostly great comments Mary! I'm glad to know about the beds, though I know this is a subjective thing and I have had guests say that they are 'too comfortable' ie too soft. If you can suggest improvement please text me, as I really want to know.

Drove to kielder water, Wallington Hall and Bamburgh Castle too. Longframlington has 2 pubs and a lovely bakery and tearoom along with a handy corner shop so the cottage is in a brilliant location.

    However, it needed a bit of TLC, such as making sure the washing machine was in good working order (it wasn't) and that the key to the back door worked (it didn't). In their defense, the owners were very responsive to the small problems that cropped up and also went to the trouble of mailing on bits and pieces that we'd left in a dresser drawer. Overall a wonderful stay.

    At this property parking was on a very busy road outside the house. This meant that at times it was impossible to park as there was a shop and hairdressers next door and inconsiderate people parked there. Also it was used for parking for someone who worked in the pub across the road junction. This person would park all day. The parking was dangerous because of the large number of cars, lorries and buses that passed. If we had known that parking was on a busy main road we would not have booked this particular property. The information on the website was misleading by omitting this piece of information.
