Also the welcome pack that Lowry left for us was very thoughtful & contained some great items, such a lovely touch thanks again.

Arrived to find the cottage beautifully decorated which made it feel homely straight off. Such a fanstastic place. Checked out the beaches (awesome) and the local town of Bamburgh. Great butchers there. Would definitely stY again and recommend to friends/family

Very comfortable bed & lovely furnishings. We felt at home immediately. Brilliant location to explore the beautiful Northumbrian coast and Edinburgh area. So much to see. So many castles and fabulous scenery! Many restaurants, pubs and coffe shops in the vicinity although we only ate out in Berwick twice. We had very nice lunch at Foxtons wine bar and a lovely evening meals at the Queens Head Hotel, where we got a very warm welcome. We also had a much needed hearty lunch at the Jolly Fisherman at Craster after a fabulous 10 km walk. Would love to come back in the spring and would definitely stay at Schoolmasters House again.
