The house was of such a high standard and felt very comfortable for myself, my husband, two young children and my parents. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathrooms were similar to those you would find in a top quality hotel. We were welcomed by a lovely tray of goodies which were gratefully received! We were in Newcastle for a family wedding and if we were to visit the area again would definitely rebook to stay!

The cottage has everything you need and the owner kindly left basics such as tea bags, sugar, washing up liquid etc and even a bottle of wine and cookies. We love Northumberland and this was a great base to explore it from.
