  • "We had a wonderful stay at Vicarage Cottage and would definitely return in the future."

    Thank you!

    That is brilliant news Emma. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Vicarage Cottage. It was good to meet you! Property Owner

  • "Fantastic cottage, spacious, fresh, clean and comfortable."

    Even though it allows dogs there was no evidence of dogs being in the property. Perfect location for touring the area being just off the A1 and the coast road. Fiona the cottage owner, baked us a lovely cake which was left on arrival along with milk and fresh flowers. There is also a downstairs toilet that we didn't notice in the listing. Has to be one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.

    It was lovely to meet you. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Vicarage Cottage. Property Owner

    It’s location is fabulous, near a lovely friendly pub, with great food. Nearby is Bamburgh Castle, which is amazing, as well as other tourist attractions, Lindisfarne, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Cragside and the Farne Islands. We’ve had the most incredible holiday and would highly recommend it.

    Quiet surroundings, lots of birdlife and excellent for our first holiday with our 10 week old grandchild. The Apple Inn serves excellent food and drink just a pity that it was difficult to get a table due to Covid restrictions.

  • "What a great place to stay."

    The cottage is immaculate and beautifully situated in a quiet location. Very comfortable and spacious with everything needed for the perfect stay. It was ideally placed for access to Bamburgh (stunning), Anwick, Berwick on Tweed to list but a few. Try Cocklawburn beach for beautiful scenery, lovely coastline and a bit of fossiling! Make sure you stock up on food etc as there is only a small local shop with limited choice, but handy when you run out of the essentials. We had a lovely meal at the local pub, The Apple Inn, which is also dog friendly, so an added bonus for us. We would highly recommend this property.

  • "Cottage was comfortable, roomy, well appointed and spotlessly clean."

    The attention to detail was first class. Would certainly return to this cottage. Well enclosed outdoor space, no worries about the dog getting out. Very easy to get to from the A1 and good base for traveling around.

  • "Vicarage Cottage was welcoming and spacious - we felt as though it had been thoroughly cleaned prior to our stay."

    Welcome tea, milk and cake was provided, and changes of towels and bedding for our two week stay. Communication with the owner regarding arrival instructions etc was clear and helpful. The cottage is well located for visiting the local area and there are many beaches, castles and other attractions within an easy drive. The neighbouring property has donkeys living behind that we enjoyed feeding the odd carrot! The location was extremely peaceful. If you enjoy visiting historical places it's worth joining English Heritage as there are loads of their venues in the area. There is a pub/restaurant a moments walk across the road and an even nicer one only a few minutes drive away at Warenford.

  • "Fiona the host was really helpful and reassuring given the uncertain times."

    The cottage was spotless and we noticed a lot of attention to detail. Fresh flowers and pot plants show care and brings the place alive for guests. Very comfy beds. The whole place was well insulated so I expect a winter visit would be just as enjoyable. Excellent location for accessing coast. Top marks!

    The homemade cake and milk in the fridge when we arrived were much appreciated. The location is very convenient for trips to Holy Island, Berwick, Bamburgh, Seahouses and Alnwick. The only small grumble (nothing to do with the property itself) was that the local footpaths in and around Lucker are very over grown which meant the only option for early and late dog walks was along the road.
