The owner went out her way to call to see if everything was ok. Well located to visit the beautiful Northumberland coast.

Made us feel very welcome and also made us feel that we could treat the cottage as our home for the duration of the stay. The cottage itself is clean and the beds are really comfy. The living room has loads of seating. (One thing to note there is no DVD player). The boot room / utility at the end of the house is great when you're coming in with mucky kids and a mucky dog. The woods are a lovely surprise and the walk through them is lovely. We didn't have the greatest weather but it didn't stop us enjoying them. On the last night we thought we'd roast marshmallows outside. A quick note to Tony and Dorothy as voila. Wood. Matches and fire lighters ready in a jiffy. Kelso swimming baths is handy for the really bad days and they have inflatable sessions that the kids really enjoyed. Holy island worth a trip as well. (Tide times in the cottage) Overall. I cant recommend this place enough.
