Absolutely First Class
Absolutely Spot On !
Myself, my partner & 11 year old son spent 4 lovely nights at Puddleduck. The location was perfect and the cottage was just fabulous, a true home from home, Janet & Neil have literally thought of everything. Upon arrival there was a lovely welcome basket of wine, juice & cookies with a pint of milk in the fridge - the kitchen was well stocked with anything you could possibly need. There are 2 great Italian restaurants within 5 min walk, to the bottom of the street, 1 left and 1 right. Alnwick Castle & Gardens well worth a visit as is Holy Island, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Alnmouth....the list is endless.
Would we recommend Puddleduck........definitely!
Would we return to Puddleduck.......most certainly!
Thank you Janet & Neil, we had an amazing break xx
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so pleased you had such a wonderful time exploring Northumberland. We love all the places you visited along with the Italian restaurants. We would love to welcome you back to Puddleduck in the future.

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
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 cottage in a great location - well equipped and comfortable.
Relaxing with great places close by to explore- we love walking and the scenery was stunning
Thank you for your lovely review. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and had a lovely time exploring Northumberland. Kindest Regards Neil and Janet
Lovely comfortable property, good location, well equipped. There is so much to do and see in the Alnwick area that we didn't have time for. Would definitely go back.
Beautiful cottage, great location - Puddleduck sets the standard!
We stayed 3 nights at Puddleduck Cottage and wished it would have been more! The property was spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated and felt like a real 'home from home'. Everything you could need for a short break was there including a welcome basket of wine, juice & chocolates and a pint of milk in the fridge, a delightful touch. The kitchen was well equipped, the towels fluffy and water piping hot, the bed linen fresh and the beds super comfortable. Most importantly for my 8 year old boy... the wi-fi was great too! Sadly the weather was too good to make use of the wood burner which looked as if it would have made the cottage a really cosy place to be in Winter. The cottage is perfectly placed being less than a 10 minute walk to Alnwick's centre, restaurants, shops and bars, the fabulous Barter Books and Alnwick Castle. Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle and the beautiful beaches of Northumberland are all within a 30 minute scenic drive. Cottage owner Janet provided great responsive communication and clear instructions to get us there and access the property. There's no parking outside the property but it's ok to load and unload and there's free parking at the rear, Janet also provided a parking disc allowing parking in the town centre and for the castle. We had a great time in Northumberland and to return each day from some pretty exhausting activities including coasteering, wild swimming and meeting Dumbledore and Harry Potter at the castle with hundreds of besotted kids, we found Puddleduck Cottage the perfect place to chill out and relax. We will be back!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Puddleduck cottage and for your lovely comments. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back in the future. Kindest regards Janet & Neil
