  • “After what has been an unusual year, it was good to get away and return to Briar Cottage.”

    From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome by Foster and Debra and by the cows, sheep, hens and dog (Briar Cottage Mascot). The moment you enter Briar Cottage, you are met by a warm homely feel and instantly relax into the start of a holiday. On the table there were freshly laid eggs from the hens, a crusty loaf in the bread bin and some milk for a cup of tea. ...

    From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome by Foster and Debra and by the cows, sheep, hens and dog (Briar Cottage Mascot). The moment you enter Briar Cottage, you are met by a warm homely feel and instantly relax into the start of a holiday. On the table there were freshly laid eggs from the hens, a crusty loaf in the bread bin and some milk for a cup of tea. As this was our second visit to Briar Cottage, we knew where everything was and were soon unpacked with our feet up. The cottage is very well equipped with a lovely stove, fabulous shower and really comfy bed. The throw over the bed was so nice that we purchased one like it for our home, effectively taking a piece of Briar Cottage with us. The cottage is so quiet that as the week wore on, we started to wake up later and later in the day. There were several visits to Rothbury for eating out and we'd recommend doing some of the walks shown in the book, that you will find in the cottage. We visited several of the places that we were unable to get to last year and were not disappointed. We'd recommend Roslyn Chapel (Da Vinci Code), it is well worth the trip. Please note that under the current restrictions, it pays to ring ahead and ask if you need to book in advance. We visited the Alnwick Gardens on a hot sunny day (pre-book) and alot of the cafe's were open although socially distanced queuing was the order of the day. The gardens are spectacular and the water features amazing. The roar of the water is fabulous and is an ideal location for photographs. We loved it. Every day we would return late to find Briar Cottage cosy and warm and ready for snuggling down in the evening. There are DVD's in the drawer under the TV if there is nothing worth watching on terrestrial. If you are looking for a quiet romantic get away for two people, Briar Cottage is the place for you. We would recommend Briar Cottage to anyone looking for a break away, and will probably find ourselves back there next year.
