  • "On the whole it was a lovely property but with one or two niggles ."

    Toilet seat needs fixing . Water runs away even with plug in in the washbasin in bathroom . Could always hear the tv from below above ours along with the smell of tobacco smoke coming up

  • "Rivershield was better than we anticipated, great location and very comfortable."

    It was really well equipped, there was nothing we wanted for at all. There were only two of us staying which was great, if we had brought our teenagers with us I think we may have been a little cramped particularly when it came to dining in. However there were some great pubs very close and they are dog friendly and serve excellent meals.

  • "Unfortunately the apartment stay was spoilt by the strong smell of stale cigarette smoke which I can only assume was coming up from the apartment below."

    The clothes smelt of it when I got home which reflects how strong the smell was. The mattress was also very thin and my partner found the bed difficult to sleep on. These two things spoilt a lovely apartment

  • "A well situated property for exploring Northumbria, spacious, very clean and well maintained."

    It overlooks the pub beer garden which caused us some concern but despite our stay coinciding with a very warm dry bank Holiday, once inside the flat, there was no noise and the beer garden seemed to empty by 9p.m. The flat is well equipped with all the domestic appliances you need and comfortable furnishings. The only criticism I have is that, although there is plenty of information provided, it is not necessarily consistent. There seemed to be 3 different versions of what to do when leaving. If we were to visit Northumberland again, Rivershield Cottage would be top of our list to book.

  • "We have stayed here a few times now, the apartment is spotless, well-equipped and ideally situated."

    The owners can't do enough for you. Looking forward to going back as soon as we can

  • "We were very pleased with the flat which was the best equipped self catering property that we have stayed in."

    Just a couple of thing to point out. We think it should be made clearer that the property doesn't have a designated parking place and the bed could have a firmer mattress. We woke up with aches and pains in the morning which we didn't have at the other places we stayed at on our trip. However that could be due to our advancing years! We really enjoyed our stay and Warkworth is as beautiful as we remember it.

  • "Fantastic apartment."

    Very clean and well maintained. Lovely base to explore the area. We spent 2 weeks here and it was a home from home. The apartment is fully kitted out for a short stay or longer stay like ours. The owners were friendly and helpful. If we want to stay in Warkworth, we'd definitely stay here again.

The property

Resting in a secluded part of Warkworth in Northumberland, Rivershield is an immaculately presented first-floor apartment, ideal for couples on holiday or a small family.

Guests are invited in straight away to a delightful sitting room complete with a stylish, contemporary electric fire inlaid into a feature wood panelled wall, a tasteful reminder of the coastal location and somewhere you can imagine gathering to enjoy spending time together.

When it’s time for the designated chef to don their apron, they will be pleased with the well-equipped kitchen which has everything needed to be able to whip up delicious meals for the holiday party.

An attractive breakfast island awaits guests to pour themselves a drink and keep the chef company and when it’s time to serve up, you can spend time indulging in all that good food.

After a tiring day of exploring the delights of Northumberland and enjoying eating and drinking, you’ll be ready for bed so take your pick from either a king-size or a twin; both are elegantly presented and come complete with a TV, so you can watch your favourite programme from the comfort of your own bed!

In the morning, after a quick dip in the shower or a relaxing soak in the bath, you’re ready to get out and about exploring.

The pretty village of Warkworth is on the doorstep with more country walks in the local area than you can shake a stick at.

Warkworth is known for being home of the dramatic ruins of a 12th century castle.

Its link to the past continues with the village’s selection of antique shops and galleries and it also has a beach and a golf course.

Attractions in the area worth visiting include Hadrian’s Wall, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Farne Islands and Alnwick Gardens.

Other beaches nearby worth packing a bucket and spade for include Alnmouth, Cresswell, Embleton and Newton Haven.
