The location of The Fat Badger was very good for exploring Northumberland. Airy and modern feel to the property. The access & manoeuvring was quite difficult with limited turning head for a large vehicle by the accommodation.

Property is very modern and location is not bad, handy for A1 and Bamburgh. No immediate dog walking areas as all land nearby is private. We stayed with 6 adults probably better suited to 4 or 2 adults and two kids .
