Lovely comfy cottage
Fab little property with lots of secure outside space !
Thank you for leaving a review. I'm glad you found the cottage comfortable. We have lots of space for bikes in Skylark's garage and can easily recommend local bike routes.
Warm welcome, cosy cottage with added joy of being on a working farm.
What a wonderful time we had at Skylark Cottage. From the moment we arrived Laura, Jane and Anna were incredibly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Our young children loved meeting the donkeys and collecting the eggs and playing in the play area next door. They didn't want to leave.. and nor did we!! The cottage is a great base for exploring Northumberland and Scotland. We packed loads in in 3 days...but the cottage is so lovely that we can imagine it would be a great place to relax and do absolutely nothing as well! The cottage was clean and spacious with everything we needed and lovely soft pillows and duvets. Would love to return one day soon...and hopefully for a longer break. Thanks Laura and family for making our break so special.
We're so pleased you had a relaxing holiday and managed to explore lots of beautiful North Northumberland. It was a pleasure introducing the children to the donkeys and ponies. They were excellent egg collectors:)
We would be delighted if you chose to return in the future. It's lovely to welcome families and see them enjoy the farm.
Best wishes, Laura and the Smales Family
A quiet retreat
3 generations of us had a lovely week in the cottage. There was everything we needed in the cottage and the donkeys, pony and chicken were much admired by my granddaughter who also enjoyed telling stories to the little dog next door who was equally captivated. She also made great use of the play area. Laura was very helpful before we went over providing some different bedding, which in the end we didn't need because the duvets weren't synthetic. The beds were fantastic with very comfortable mattresses, top quality cotton bedlinen and down duvets and the towels plentiful and thick. Although the farm buildings are opposite the situation is very quiet with almost no vehicles using the road and a lovely view of the rolling countryside from the back garden. There is easy access to Berwick and all the local places to visit so it's a great place to stay.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review. It is greatly appreciated. I am so pleased you found the beds comfortable. We think it's really important for a holiday!
We hope you might return some time. It's always lovely to welcome families back.

An amazing piece of North East paradise
Beautifully fully equipped cottage in a great location. Ample size for our family of 6, clean, tidy with a great welcome from Laura, who was a pleasure and couldn't do enough. A perfect piece of paradise away from hectic life. Breath taking surroundings, the children loved feeding the horse and donkeys, then hopping over the wall to the play area. Close enough to amenities but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet. We thoroughly loved our stay and will definitly be returning! Thanks Laura
Lovely relaxing break in pleasant surroundings.j
Pleasant stay in cosy cottage away from fireworks, which was the main reason for our stay. Warm welcome on arrival, well equipped cottage.
Excellent walks nearby. Would recommend it.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. It is wonderful to hear you enjoyed your short break. It is indeed very peaceful at Thornton. I enjoyed a walk yesterday and spotted 8 deer sleeping in the Wood. It was a lovely sight. If you enjoy walking we have OS maps in Skylark. There are also great walks along the Coastal Path, the River Tweed or even around Berwick Walls. A good choice for different abilities and interests. A list of which can be found in the cottage.
We very much hope to welcome you back in the future.
