    Very comfortable, clean and spacious. Sunny garden with chairs and outdoor tableware. Nice quiet village which was close for the beach and the Cheviot Hills. Plenty to do and see locally, with places to eat and shop. We had a wonderful week and hope to go back very soon.

    We definitely will return here next time we are in Northumberland. Owner, Russell, was exceptionally helpful and very nice to deal with. Ramblers Cottage is in a good position for sightseeing with beautiful beaches worth seeing. Beadall Bay & Alnmouth to name a couple.

  • "Unfortunately there was an overpowering smell from the oil boiler."

    It permeated the whole home. I did let the owner know and he has responded. Also the Internet network didn't connect, there was no hair dryer (which I assumed would be there as they always are in other holiday homes). Overall the standard was lower than I am used to and I take UK holidays twice yearly staying in often cheaper but much higher standard houses/cottages.

    Thank you for your feedback, I'm sorry you feel the standard at Ramblers Cottage is lower than you are used to. We have since reviewed the property after your departure and can confirm that the internet is working without issue and the hairdryer is still at the property, I'm sorry you weren't able to locate this during your stay; had we known of any issues, we would have happily looked into these for you. The smell of oil you reported may have been due to the central heating being turned up higher than usual but again, this has been checked and is working as it should. Thank you again for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Property Owner
