Thoroughly enjoyed our week it was 5 star all around from the cleanliness to the lovely comfy bed, jacuzzi bath and cosy lounge. The wifi signal was brilliant and we made full use of the smart TV. It is an ideal location for visiting Northumberland both costal and inland. Hosts were very friendly and we loved our welcome gifts!

Cottage very comfortable and clean. Plenty big enough for 4 adults especially as it has two ensuites. If you like a dark bedroom take an eye mask. Felt that everything was safe and owner, who was lovely, had done everything to make sure guests could relax about Covid.

The reason I wouldnt recommend this property is because it faces North so there is no sunshine on the patio at all. There is no outlook either it overlooks the back of the owners house. It shows gardens but they all belong to the owner. The hot tub is very near to the owners conservatory, I didnt use it for that reason. Also the bedrooms are onto aRead more main road. So couldnt leave the windows open at night. Hide
