"Lovely cottage let down by the kitchen. The bedrooms, living room and dining room were all lovely with some nice quirky features. However, it seemed as if the owners hadn't got round to updating the kitchen yet. We stayed over Christmas and although the weather was quite mild the kitchen was freezing - even with both ovens going. There is a radiator but it's round a corner by the back door and had no effect on the kitchen at all. For a property marketed to sleep 8-10 people the stock of kitchenware and utensils was inadequate: not enough wine glasses for 6 people; no highballs etc, just a few mismatched tumblers. No oven gloves!(had to buy our own) Only 2 tea towels provided for a 4 night stay (had to buy extra). Plenty of knives, forks and spoons but not a lot else. Tin opener useless (had to buy our own). The cleanliness of the kitchen was also not great (the rest of the property was fine) - cutlery, plates and pans had obviously just been taken out of the dishwasher and put away without being checked and most were dirty. Such a shame that a lovely property was let down by poor basic standards and hopefully it was just down to the owners being new to holiday letting. One final thing - it needs to be highlighted in the cottage description that there is a steep set of stairs between the kitchen and the dining room (just so people are prepared to have to carry their Christmas dinner from one floor to the next). We would happily stay again (despite the kitchen gripes) as the location is great - nice local pubs, walks and a well stocked co-op round the corner."

"Belford is a lovely friendly village. The Black Swan Hotel was especially welcoming. We had all the amenities of the village but were close enough to the beach and countryside too. The house was spacious and quirky and the beds we're comfortable. The layout was difficult with a flight of stairs between the kitchen and dining room and some twin rooms rather than double beds would be better for families. Our teenage girls did not appreciate sharing a bed and the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. The back yard was not well cared for and there was no pleasant outdoor space. The worst aspect of the cottage was the noise of the plumbing. From the downstairs bedroom there was constant loud noise of flushing toilets and gushing water, including through the night. The first time we went to use the oven we found leftover pizza on the grill pan . The oven was not clean overall and complicated to use. We would love to return to Belford but unfortunately not in this cottage."

"Great converted barn 20 minutes from Alnwick. Generally clean and tidy, comfy bed.The property is very rural, whilst everything is about a 20 minute drive away, it does mean a very quiet, restful location.Attention to detail is the biggest drawback of this cottage: dead flies on windowsills and only two tea bags. On the plus side, very clean linen, towels and a bottle of red wine on arrival.TV is a little on the small side for the space, but we were there to explore the area anyway, so not a problem for us. This property should not have been advertised with WiFi. We struggled to get any connection as it shares a BT Hub with an adjoining property and constantly kept dropping. Given the rural location we also struggled to get any 3/4G. So prepare to be off grid.Overall, a lovely little property, clean to an acceptable level and well positioned to explore a broad area. Particularly good if you want some time away with no internet access."

"Very pretty cottage. The only real fault we had were the beds. First night we slept on double bed downstairs. We both rolled into the middle all night. I think mattress well ready to be replaced. For the rest of the holiday, we slept in single beds upstairs. They reminded me of the hard beds I had as a child, still not comfortable, but at least better than downstairs. Would have been nice to have more luxurious bedding. Also, I could not find any cupboard or shelf space in kitchen to put items that I had brought with me! I saw someone in guest book had suggested fencing in a piece of garden for doggies to be off lead. That was a good suggestion. I have only marked location lower as, although the cottage was very central in Northumberland, we struggled to find anywhere to eat in the evenings in village. Nevertheless, we had a great holiday and would go again if the beds were replaced."

"Very helpful staff, and great cottages in a lovely quiet location. The downsides of a country location were that it took a little longer to travel the country roads to other Northumbrian attractions around the coast. Of the cottage itself - a few spiders had taken up residence in two of the shower units despite the otherwise immaculate facilities. Although the adverts describe the swimming pool and games room, the hours of use were a little restrictive in that they were not available after 7pm. We understood the Health and Safety restrictions on using the pool, but it would have been nice to be able to use the games room and/or snooker table in the evening. We would most definitely use the cottages from this owner again - but might chose to stay at their other site at Seahouses"
