Another wonderful stay at Puddle Duck can't recommend this cottage enough!
This was our second visit to spend Christmas in Alnwick. Just like our last stay it was very much home from home having everything you need for a comfortable stay. The welcome basket and Christmas gift was much appreciated, thank you! It was lovely to light the log burner and candles following a Christmas Eve walk along the coast. Alnwick looked magical with its Christmas lights and festive shops. Would highly recommend this area and there is no better place to stay than Puddle Duck Cottage.
It was lovely to welcome you back to Puddle Duck Cottage and thank you so much for your kind review we really appreciate it. We look forward to you returning again in the future and wish you both a very Happy 2019. Best Wishes Janet & Neil

Cosy but spacious
This is a great cottage. Really thoughtful owners; welcome pack, very clean, good quality crockery, cutlery and bedding makes all the difference. Also very close to the town centre. Parking not a problem for us, not sure how it would be in peak season.
Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you again in the future. Kindest Regards Janet & Neil
Cosy but spacious cottage in perfect location
A perfect holiday cottage in the centre of Alnwick. Close to all the best pubs and restaurants and within a few hundred yards of the castle and gardens.
The spacious sitting/dining room is warm and comfortable and like the bedrooms and bathroom is pleasantly furnished. All-in-all probably the best cottage we've stayed in. Fresh flowers on arrival and a welcome basket of wine and essentials were a very nice gesture as well.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, we really appreciate you taking the time to review Puddleuck Cottage. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future. Kindest Regards, Janet and Neil
Beautiful holiday cottage
We had a fabulous weekend at 'Puddleduck Cottage' to celebrate my birthday. It was spotlessly clean, cosy and comfortable with absolutely everything we could have needed to enjoy our time there. There was a lovely goody basket and even a birthday card for me, what a kind thought. We will definitely book again to see even more of this lovely part of Northumberland.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We hope you had a lovely Birthday at Puddleduck cottage, and would love to welcome you back in the future. Kindest Regards Janet & Neil
