  • "A delightful cottage with a very well equipped kitchen."

    We liked the garden, please let the “rewilding” continue. The twin bedroom is perhaps best thought of as a children’s room; lanky teenagers might find it not for them. The owners were very helpful and friendly. A good base for trips to Hadrian’s Wall, the coast, Cragside, Hexham and Alnwick. Morpeth good for tourist information and eating, we had a delicious meal at Emily’s/PTMY.

    Many thanks and apologies for the very late response to your feedback from your stay with us last October! But just to say how much we appreciated it and we hope very much that you would consider a stay with us again in the future. Thanks again and kind regards Natascha Z Property Owner
