The cottage was in a beautiful location and there was plenty of room for 6 adults and 3 dogs. Overall, it was a wonderful weekend but could have been perfect with small attention to detail as stated above

Very nice location, plenty of walks, ideal for pets. Wonderful pub called the Tankerville Arms. Excellent food in nearby Eglingham. Cottage had lots of space for our family, 6 adults and 2 children.

We had a fabulous time staying at Riverside Cottage. It is exactly the type of place we look for for our annual whole family and dogs come too holiday. It was clean, very comfortable and homely with lots of nice touches like a toy cupboard for younger children, cosy throws on the sofas and games and films for the grown ups - perfect!

Lovely cottage overall love the huge kitchen/ dinning area nice walks around fields and woods children loved the outside play house a bit isolated as you had to drive everywhere even to pub but it was a very nice pub

Reviewed by Ashraf, 23rd August 2019

Wonderful location; beautiful and a perfect base for exploring the county (on the edge of the national park and close to the coast). The cottage was a good size and contained most modern facilities. The wifi was unstable, however. The cottage does require some refurbishment/modernising as some parts of it are in disrepair. Once this is completed, iRead moret will become an outstanding location for large tour groups. Northumberland is an incredible holiday destination. Hide
