  • "Lovely cottage."

    Only problem was the Wi-Fi — which meant we couldn’t watch films — but we read instead (and Alnwick has some great bookshops). Particularly enjoyed the garden.

    Huge apologies regarding the brake down on the router. This was quickly replaced by the provider as soon as we were made aware of the problem. We have managed to updated our Broadband as soon as Fibre arrived into the village which has made a huge difference. We are so happy that you all enjoyed the cottage. It’s is a beautiful 200 year old building which is very quirky but bags of fun. We absolutely love the cottage & enjoy nothing more than watching the wildlife pass us by along the river Aln is truly a real treat. Property Owner

  • "If looking for peace and quiet in a characterful property set in a picturesque village yet within half an hour of the coast and many places of interest then this cottage would be for you."

    The beds are very comfortable and the towels fresh, white and fluffy. All linen is impeccably laundered and the property clean and tidy throughout. The rustic nature of the kitchen and sitting room make it homely. It is quaint, quirky and charming. There are some lovely local walks and a lot of history both in the village and the locality as well as the whole county of Northumberland.
