  • "Thank you Pam for a lovely cottage."

    My husband and I had a wonderful and rested stay. The cottage facilities were excellent. Having good local shops was a real plus point. I even went to the hairdressers, just three doors away. Everyone in the village including the local bus drivers were very friendly. Sarah and Barry Wilkinson.

    I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay - and obviously settled in to the village well - so much fun exploring on holiday isn't it! Thank you for being lovely guests! Property Owner

  • "A lovely cosy cottage, with everything you need for a restful week away."

    The log burner was wonderful to be able to put your feet up in front of in the evening, after a day exploring the area. The Welcome pack was much appreciated and Pam, the host, really cares that you have a good time. There is plenty to do. We did a lovely walk into Rothbury via the Anglers Arms and caught the bus back, also went to Amble by bus to have a fish platter at the Boat House. 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. Although no allocated parking, we had no problems with parking outside the cottage during our stay and the bus stops in front of the church, which is next door.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, Sonia, which I very much appreciate. I do indeed wish for visitors to enjoy being at the cottage and exploring Northumberland as much as I do, and I'm sure your detailed comments will help! Property Owner

    Well equipped for a comfortable stay . Hosts were wonderful and provided all home comforts . Would be helpful to be more specific in the directions for arrival (Just need to add the house is a couple of doors away from the village shop or next to the church) as we had to drive up and down a few times to see it .

  • "The house smelt damp and musty."

    The crockery smelt musty because the kitchen cupboards smelt musty. This was even though the housekeeper/cleaner had left all the windows open. There was a washing machine (and pegs!) but no washing line or clothes airer to put wet washing on. We found silverfish crawling on the bedroom walls. It was a bit cluttered with too much furniture. The location was okay and the bed was comfy though.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you had a few issues whilst away if you had brought any problems to our attention the owner would have been round straight away to rectify these issues.There is a retractable washing line outside, sorry you missed it, I have also purchased a clothes airer based on your comment.There is background heating in the cottage so it is warm and dry and the mustiness was due to a drain issue which has been sorted.We are pleased you found the bed comfy and enjoyed the location Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely, comfortable and homey with a well equipped kitchen and a beautiful master bedroom."

    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.

    The welcome pack was a bonus we weren’t expecting and had everything we needed for our first few hours before finding the local shop, which is worthy of mention as it stocks most things and is only a few doors from the cottage. Longframlington is a great explore the local area.

  • "On the website it does not mention parking for cars."

    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.

    Good for the coast, national parks, castles and Scotland. The cottage is spacious, has everything you could possibly need and the big wood burner is great on these colder autumn nights. Staff at The Village Inn at the bottom of the road are very welcoming and the food is superb. We would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to visit the area, and commend the cleaning crew for their attention to detail during the Covid pandemic.
