  • "An ideal base for exploring this area."

    Norham is a beautiful, peaceful village, with a variety of walking opportunities - perfect for dog owners. The cottage is clean and heating works efficiently. The living room and conservatory are both impressive and spacious, with one window framing Norham castle. Both bedrooms are smaller but adequate. The twin room is an internal room with no window. Various levels make the garden interesting, and so long as the side gate is bolted, it's totally enclosed for children or dogs. At night the castle is lit up and looks amazing from the upper garden. . We found inside and outdoors to be well equipped, although a floodlight for the garden would be useful on darker evenings. Overall, we enjoyed our visit and found plenty to do in this lovely region.

    The cottage is spacious, clean and very comfortable. Norham is a lovely little village with two great pubs. It is a great base for exploring Northumberland and also the Scottish Borders.

  • "A really comfortable and spacious cottage."

    We stayed in the depths of winter in a very cold and frosty spell and the house remained beautifully warm at all times. We much enjoyed reading the suggestions book, it seems that some residents like to moan about just about everything! It must be a little disheartening when you have such a great property. I hope we improved the cottage by our stay and repaired a few of the little coat hooks in the hallway.

  • "Lovely spacious cottage with everything we needed."

    We fed the birds which were abundant in the lovely enclosed garden which was enjoyed by both us and the dog The history of Norham village is amazing. Such a lovely quiet village which has seen such violence over the years. We did the garden trail which introduced us to more areas in the village and lots of lovely people. The church was amazing. We recommend this cottage and village as a good base for visiting Northumberland

    Large sunroom/dining room looking out over large garden with views of Norham castle. Ideal for a relaxing break or perfectly situated to go off and explore Scotland and Northumberland. Local pub the Masons Arms offered good food, drink and hospitality.

    Well appointed and quirky set in the heart of beautiful Norham with lovely walks on your doorstep and an excellent village pub/hotel (food excellent). The garden is lovely with several decks and a large lawn. All in all a perfect wee find! This was our second visit and we will probably return in the future due to its great position for exploring the Northumberland coast and national park and the Scottish coast.

    Everything that we needed within the cottage and a fabulous enclosed garden for the dogs. The cottage is twice as big as the image that appears on the booking site. We know the area well and Norham is an ideal base for exploring Northumberland the borders and up into Scoltland. Brilliant butchers, bakers and great food at The Masons

  • "Lovely cottage in the small beautiful village of Norham."

    We arrived late Friday afternoon for our week stay in May and found the cottage bright and clean with much more space than appears in the photos. The kitchen had all the necessary items and work surface to prepare a packed lunch, make a simple meal and the essential cuppa. We enjoyed our breakfast sitting in the conservatory watching the birds in the back garden, which also gets the morning sun, so is a bright room to be in. On an evening, after walking all day we relaxed in the living room which has a cracking view through the side window of Norham castle, which sits on the hill.The shower was adequate and the bed was comfortable. Great cottage for a couple and their dog.

    The conservatory is so peaceful and relaxing and a delight on a couple of days when the sun was shining through the conservatory windows. A secure garden for Lola the Cocker Spaniel to explore. Plenty of hot water too. A gem of a find in the peaceful village of Norham.

    The house had everything you needed and more.The garden was a joy and having two springers who love to explore this was just ideal. This cottage is really like home from home and had a lovely atmosphere, where you really could relax.We know the surrounding area very well and have visited almost yearly for thirty odd years but Norham is a really great place as you have coastline and countryside within a ten minute drive. So would recommend this little gem of a holiday home, and would add that the owners should be very proud of what they offer their guests.

Well serviced with a Pub, Butchers, Bakers and a village shop. Walk from the cottage across the road and you are one minute from the banks of the River Tweed. 10 minute drive to Berwick upon Tweed and then head South to the best of Northumberland's villages and beaches or head North to Scotland, Eyemouth and St Abbs. Fantastic holiday, will be booking again for next year

  • "This was our second visit to this cottage and we have booked to go again next year - it is always spotlessly clean on arrival."

    We love it as it has a completely enclosed garden which makes life very easy with the dog and the village of Norham is great, lovely pub, shop, butchers and bakers and locals very friendly. The conservatory was perfect in the weather this time and the cottage is well furnished. Our only negative point would be that we (and other guests) have made suggestions around simple additions to the kitchen equipment which would be low cost but would make a big difference and these haven’t been acted upon. We also really appreciate the provision of a BBQ, something which has been withdrawn at this cottage. This wouldn’t stop us using this cottage but it would be beneficial to not have to take own BBQ, cafetière and large pan! Though we purchased a pan and left it there this time…..

The village is kept clean and tidy, village green mowed twice while we were there - all in all a GEM of a place. The cottage was all we could have expected and more. Comfy beds, clean on arrival. No problems at all and the garden was dog friendly - totally safe and soooo large Pippa had a great time playing on their massive lawn.
