We wanted to explore Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, as we'd never visited the area before and this cottage was ideally located. We did lots, including; Bamburgh Castle, Lindisfarne and Berwick-upon-Tweed on the East Coast, walking in Kielder Park, visited Jedburgh and other local towns/villages and even a trip to Edinburgh. The cottage was beautifully presented throughout and a cosy place to go back to at the end of the day. Our family of four included 2 teenage lads, plus our dog (Buddy) and we had a great break!
