The house is very beautifully decorated and is lovely, quiet and spacious. The garden area was particularly liked by our dog, he had plenty of room to run about it and we didn’t need to worry about him running off (everything is enclosed in with a wall/fence/gates). Which is probably a bonus for those with kids. You can tell a lot of time, precision and energy has been put into renovating the house, it was so beautiful and we couldn’t fault anything.
The house is located in the country, very quiet and secluded. Meaning the time spend in the hot tub was very peaceful! The house is around 40 minutes- 1 hour away from the coast and towns such as: Bamburgh, Seahouses, Beadnell and more. Which isn’t a worry because you can spend all day in them areas and not really think about the drive home. It’s a 15- 20 minute drive to Alnwick centre where there is a; Morrison’s superstore, Aldi, petrol station, Alnwick castle and lots and lots more. There is a near by petrol station and store from the house in Powburn (about 5 minute drive) which is good also for the odd item.
Everything we needed from the house we received including: comfy beds, dog supplies, speedy WiFi, log burner, towels, iron, a fan for the hot nights and more. So the only things we needed to pack was clothes and toiletries!
We honestly couldn’t not have found a better place to stay and cannot wait to visit again! Would highly recommend to anyone. Even if you’re a couple looking for a romantic stay, dog owners, families with small children or even if your looking to go alone for a bit of tranquillity.
P.s We found a fish & chip van that moves from town to town on Fridays- we believe it stops between Powburn, Whittingham and Glanton. But honestly, it’s the best fish and chips we’ve had in a long time!
We very much enjoyed our stay at this property. Gerald was very welcoming and the property was both immaculately clean and well-equipped. All the rooms were airy and pleasant. It was a perfect base for many of the region's sites from Bamburgh and Seahouses to Hadrian's Wall and Alnwick Castle. We especially enjoyed the bird feeders hanging by the lounge windows which were constantly in demand from the local songbirds - including some lovely blue tit chicks! We hope to go back soon.
