  • "Only thing we noticed was the upstairs sink was slow to drain."

    Second time we have stayed at Middlemoor, this time with a toddler and the only thing that would have allayed her mother’s fears would have been a baby gate at the top of the stairs. She was never out of sight so we had no concerns as grandparents. We were very happy with the accommodation and garden. A* rating

  • "Our 40th visit to the area but first time at Middlemoor cottage."

    The location is fabulous and property very nice albeit with a few negatives. The good, garden, location, peacefulness and most of the facilities,plenty of books,games and a big TV. The not so good, comfort of beds and living room furniture (though we appreciate this is a personal taste), only 3 logs in starter pack of wood and no firelighters. We would have liked to have a couple of trays, toilet brushes, a pen and a nicer welcome pack. The wi-fi is hit and miss. All in all whilst the good outweighs the negatives I don't think it's for us but don't let that put you off.

    Thank you for your feedback, it's always useful for us to have comments from our guests. We appreciate the positives that you mentioned and will give consideration to your suggestions for improvement for future guests. Jane and Alan Property Owner

  • "Middlemoor Cottage is a great little cottage for a short break."

    Easy to find, extremely clean, well-appointed with everything you need. Great shower! The information provided about the surrounding areas was particularly good. Beautiful Alnwick, Craster and Dunstanburgh Castle are close by. Lindisfarne and Bamburgh only half an hour away. We really wanted to try the nearby Horseshoe Pub in Rennington for dinner but it was completely booked up! That’s a recommendation in itself. Only downsides are that nothing is walkable from the cottage - you have to drive or cycle to get anywhere. Plus, while the sofa is comfy, the armchairs are not!

The property

Alnwick 5.1 miles.

Resting in peaceful surroundings, Middlemoor Cottage is close to Alnwick in Northumberland, and offers elegantly presented accommodation which is the ideal destination for a family holiday.

With delightful, extensive front gardens giving the cottage a beautifully rustic feel, the property is the perfect rural retreat.

On entering the cottage, the sitting room welcomes guests in to kick off their shoes, take a seat in front of the attractive woodburning stove and look forward to spending time just chilling out.

When hunger strikes, the charming fully fitted kitchen is waiting for the designated chef to come in and whip up a culinary storm, so that when it’s time to eat, the country-style dining table is ready to host long, enjoyable meals.

If the sun is shining, then time spent in the gardens is time well spent with plenty of room for the children and any pets to run around in and pleasant patio areas with furniture just waiting for the grown-ups to sit down, relax and take in the gorgeous rural views.

At bedtime, the two bedrooms, a double and a twin, are both equally stylish and offer a calming sanctuary to lay your weary heads after a tiring day of exploring.

After a morning coffee on the patio and a quick shower, you’ll be raring to go and ready to explore again.

As well as loads of scenic country walks on the doorstep, the picturesque town of Alnwick is a short distance away which is dominated by its stunning castle and gardens, boasting Europe’s largest cascading water feature.

The castle’s other claim to fame is that it was the setting for Hogwarts School as featured in the Harry Potter films.

The town also has a good selection of shops and amenities as well as miles of beaches to explore.

Nearby coastal towns worth visiting include Alnmouth, Seahouses, Warkworth and Beadnell with trips to Farne Islands popular where you can look out for unusual birds and even seals.

Other attractions include Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland Country Zoo and Bailiffgate Museum and Gallery.

A memorable holiday in beautiful surroundings awaits with a stay at Middlemoor Cottage.

About the location

ALNWICK

Alnmouth 4 miles; Bamburgh 15 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.

The attractive and historic market town of Alnwick is dominated by Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland. The Castle Gardens, opened in 2002, are home to Europe's largest cascading water feature, a fabulous (and enormous) treehouse, a delightful rose garden and a beautiful, walled ornamental garden, which will delight novice and experienced gardeners alike. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films! The town's narrow streets have seen little change since the days when the London to Edinburgh stage coach passed through and the Market Place, with its stone cross, is still the central feature and the ideal venue for the weekly Saturday market. Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
