"Potentially a nice holiday cottage spoiled by lack of attention to detail.We didn't get off to the best of starts as the first thing to greet us on entering the cottage was a strong smell of fish. So rummaging through the kitchen for a tin of air freshener, there was none, we came upon the welcome pack. Bread, butter, milk and a bottle of white wine, there was no tea or coffee so what were you thinking, toast and a glass of milk perhaps? There was no salt or pepper either, no cooking oil, and the dishwasher had warning lights on for no salt or rinse aid. A trip to the local shop was first priority. Luckily the shop was still open, closes at 5pm and just a short walk into the village. We got back to the cottage and while my wife was unpacking I set to with the air freshener and then attacked the heating. Although there is a thermostat at the bottom of the stairs I realised that all of the radiators had been turned off, consequently the house was a little cool in the evening, except for the bathroom which was hot enough to be a sauna. The radiator valves were stubbornly stuck and took a lot of work to open, some didn't make it and stayed stuck. While on the subject of heating you should know there is no access to the boiler which is right next to the bedroom and switches on and off constantly, not helpful if you are a light sleeper, so you have to try and get a balance between keeping the house warm in the cooler evenings but not so much that the boiler keeps you awake. On the subject of sleeping I noticed complaints about traffic noise from previous guests, we arrived Friday evening and to be honest I thought they were exaggerating, however come Monday morning the traffic noise started, early morning as people head off to work, light sleepers beware.The cottage is dog friendly, as is most of Northumberland, and as a dog lover and the owner of a lovely black Labrador I think this is a great idea, although we couldn't bring ours with us as we normally live in Spain. There are however a few downsides to being pet friendly, the neighbours letting their dogs out each morning to pee on the plant pots and table legs in the courtyard, putting some washing in the excellent washer/dryer provided and having the first lot come out covered in short hairs, and then suffering flea bites on our legs after the first evening. Unfortunately I am allergic to bites and my ankle was swollen and covered in an itchy rash, trip to Boots in Amble to top up on Piriton and then an hour spent hoovering the living room and in particular the sofas sorted the problem and no further bites. On the subject of dogs I presume the stains on carpets and sofas were from previous pets.Despite all this we really enjoyed our week in Warkworth, it's a lovely area I just hope this particular holiday cottage gets a bit more care before future guests arrive."

"Close location to shops although only supermarket is a Coop 'express'. No outside seating area to the house. Parking is difficult although the issue of parking was mentioned in the booking. Arrived late Fri night and over weekend found the hot water to sink not working, shower head poor, shower leaked on floor, battery dead in smoke alarm. Phoned agent Monday morning and all fixed by Monday evening. Wednesday night lost lights in toilet then all lights. Electrician explained main switch on distribution board u/s and will need new board. We managed to get lights back then had issues with TV on Thursday just as England were playing. Issues marred holiday as we were working with agent and did not make for relaxing holiday. Home is very nice and would recommend if not for issues we had. They have a dishwasher for a party of possibly 3 people. We were a party of 2 and did not use it. May have made more sense to have a washing m/c but then this is just choice. Area is nice but almost opposite pub therefore lots of noise late into night, okay if this does not bother you. Area great for lots of walking and historic building, which we did a lot of both. Recommend a day at Cragside, brilliant grounds and house - National Trust."

"Beautiful, spacious family home. Perfect as a base for us to re visit all our favourite Northumberland sights and fabulous beaches. There is a fabulous beach just a short drive away, where we walked the dogs almost ever day. The Kitchen is so well equipped, if you felt like cooking a gourmet dinner you would find every utensil you needed. Even a Coffee maker to program for your morning Coffee! our two Border Terriers were secure in the back Garden, which has a large table and chairs for Alfreso dining. We were there in an extremely hot week, but the house was lovely and cool, and the big comfy beds very welcoming. The two living rooms were a bonus, as our teenagers could watch what they wanted on the evenings we just wanted to relax. We sat in the Garden, chilled Prosecco in hand, watching the sheep, Horses, and the stars as it got dark. A very relaxing holiday was had by all."

"Very clean and comfortable apartment with a very well stocked kitchen. The furniture was comfy and well laid out and the kitchen had more crockery and utensils than larger places we've stayed at, including a full sized fridge freezer and easy to use oven. The location is perfect for dogs, a minute from the beautiful beach and promenade and the apartment has a lovely enclosed courtyard. There's not much in Spittal itself but there is a great little shop, a couple of pubs and cafe and amusements on the promenade. It's the perfect base for exploring the Northumberland coast and Scottish Borders. Berwick is about a 20/30 minute walk depending on speed. Jean is a fantastic host and left a lovely welcome basket of biscuits, honey, jam, wine and milk. We had an amazing 2 weeks and will definitely return. I would highly recommend Aidens and couldn't fault anything."

"The cottage is beautiful But the noise from traffic outside is terrible it is on a main road and very noisy, The real problem is parking. I parked my car round the ally to unpack my car a man who drives a learner driver car came knocking on my window and shouting I'm I a resident in a very aggressive manner. Then followed me to the cottage shouting at me to move my car. I left the car there until my husband came back as I was frightened to move it on my own. At 8.30 the next day I had someone banging on the cottage door and shouting at me to move my car!! I moved it to the open car park at the front. They are doing drain works in Warkworth village limiting car space to half the amount even resident carpark full!! This needs sorting out before someone gets hurt. The residents are really aggressive!!!"
