Short Hop To Lindisfarne
Ideally placed to tour round this beautiful part of the country. Only a short hop to Holy Island to see Lindisfarne Priory and Castle. Easy parking very friendly welcoming owner in nearby pub. Quiet well kept and very clean and tidy.
Dark, noisy and under equipped
The house seemed lovely at first, very clean and parking available. Unfortunately, as soon as it started to get dark, the downstairs area was dark and dingy, with only one small light for the whole area. A standing lamp had been provided but this was wobbly and had clearly come apart previously and you could not change the angle of the light so not an acceptable solution. This made cooking in the evening very difficult as you couldn’t see properly. The kitchen had only one wooden bread board and no other chopping boards and only three small pans and a frying pan. Not easy to cook in at all. The bed was comfortable upstairs but unfortunately, every step taken on the floor sounded as if a herd of elephants was about to fall through the floor boards. The shower also had only two temperatures, freezing and scalding and wouldn’t not retain a constant temperature. On top of all this, the house was between the pub and beer garden meaning that pub customers and staff were regularly walking past on the gravel throughout the day and into the evening. The pub bins were also located outside the house, adding further noise and people to the mix.
We do this type of holiday quite regularly, staying in similar types of accommodations with similar price ranges and have not found these issues anywhere before. Disappointed as this should have been a very lovely stay in a wonderful location.
Perfect little cottage, close to all town amenities
Lovely cottage, perfect location. The property owner has the Black Swan pub next door and it does lovely food and has really friendly staff.
The bus stops are two minutes away and the buses run frequently, really good service.
Black Swan Cottage
Great one bed cottage. Good base to get out and see all the nearby beautiful beaches and castles. We found the Black Swan pub friendly and great entertainment. Food was excellent.
