    “Lovely place with wonderful hosts”

    My husband, my 3 children inc a baby and I stayed here for a few days and loved it. The house was well located near the amenities in Berwick and the sights of Bamburgh and Lindisfarne. The house was clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. It was cold when we arrived and took some time to figure out the heating but once we did it was cosy. The log fire was nice to have too. ...

    My husband, my 3 children inc a baby and I stayed here for a few days and loved it. The house was well located near the amenities in Berwick and the sights of Bamburgh and Lindisfarne. The house was clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. It was cold when we arrived and took some time to figure out the heating but once we did it was cosy. The log fire was nice to have too. We arranged for a grocery delivery to be ready for when we arrived and found that the host had very generously unpacked them and put the chilled and frozen items away. The bedrooms were comfortable and we enjoyed good nights sleep. A travel cot was made up with bedding for our baby. The bathroom was spacious with enough towels and toiletries. However we felt the shower pressure was quite weak and overall could have done with a more thorough scrub, especially the bathroom on the second floor. We didn't use the bedroom on the second floor but it was a nice space for the kids to place hide and seek in and views were lovely from up there (sunset photo below). The views were lovely from all windows, you can even see the sea from the back bedroom window. The kitchen was clean and well equipped for our needs. On the second morning we did notice some slug trails between the kitchen table and window; we cleaned it up and that night scattered some salt under the window that night and didn't see any more. It was very convenient to have use of a dishwasher and washing machine including detergents. Highly recommend the cottage.
