We arrived on Friday 23rd December and stayed until Tuesday 3rd January 2017. The cottage is very well equipped, very cosy and comfortable. The Welcome pack from the Running Fox was a delightful surprise as was the Christmas tree and lights. Very thoughtful indeed. The local area is excellent for dog walking, both within Felton and also a short drive away to the beaches at Amble, Alnmouth, Beadnell and Bamburgh. The quality of catering from the Running Fox and the Northumberland Arms is superb. The Northumberland Arms is also dog-friendly and we were able to take our pets with us every time that we dined out there. We fell in love with the local area and look forward to returning sometime this year.

It has everything you need for a relaxing stay and Alison, the manager, is very welcoming and helpful. Every room is lovely, the cottage was really well heated and there was everything you would need in the spacious kitchen. It was spotlessly clean and everything was provided for a great stay. It is a fantastic location, with Alnwick, beautiful beaches and interesting places to visit, all within easy reach. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and would definitely go back.
