Wonderful quiet cottage beautifully furnished, with all the bits and pieces you need for a family holiday.

Beautiful cottage but please be advised that the hot tub and garden shown in the pictures belong to the owners! You are given permission to use their hot tub but have to walk round their house to get to it.

The Carriage House is a nicely presented, clean, light, comfortable and well-equipped cottage adjacent to the owners house. Its location made it a great base to explore the area. We particularly enjoyed Cragside House (NT) and Durham Cathedral.

Perfect cottage for a family. Very comfy and cosy with everything you could want for a holiday. Ideal location for visiting the beach and lots of other tourist attractions.

Reviewed by Susan L, 8th July 2017

The cottage was in a good location to visit many different areas of Northumberland. The owner was friendly and helpful and offered advice on places to visit which would be easy for an elderly member of our party. She also gave us a full explanation of all the facilities in the cottage. The cottage was light, clean and spacious and en suite bathroomRead mores for both bedrooms was a bonus. The beautiful flowers lasted all week and the wine was a nice touch. Hide

A lovely spacious cottage with all the facilities you could need for a break away. Spotless, everything you could possibly need. Absolutely amazing week. Visited Alnwick, Dunstanburgh and Warkworth castles. Corbridge, Housestead and Chesters for Hadrian's Wall. We went to Amble twice and highly recommend the fish shack. Highly recommend the WiddrinRead moregton Inn. We also went to Holy Island. We will be returning to the area as just couldn't fit everything in. Dawns local tourist knowledge was first class. Thank-you Dawn and Joe. Hide
