Warm and cosy.
The cottage was very warm and the bed was extremely large and comfortable. Nice hot power shower. Nice views and gorgeous countryside walks. Very happy with everything. Thank you for the flowers and eggs. ( The best free-range eggs we have ever had)!
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review. I will let Jane know you enjoyed the eggs. She is very proud of her hens who are organic free range :) We hope to welcome you back if you are visiting Northumberland again. Best wishes, Laura
This was a peaceful location, a comfortable and clean cottage. Lots of things to do in the area. We had a lovely holiday.
