Beautiful property very clean and welcoming

Mrs Kelly G,

A really cosy and pleasant place to stay. All amenities were of a high standard and we had all we needed to cook Christmas dinner successfully. The proximity of the Co-op was a novelty to us and proved to be very useful as it was open late. The town is delightful and the beaches are fabulous. We had a lovely walk in the Cheviots on Christmas Eve and had an enjoyable visit to Berwick and walked the walls. Also we found St Abbs just over the border a wonderful little spot with delightful beaches. Howick Hall near Alnwick is a great day out but was not open when we stayed, we have visited it on another occasion. Would recommend the cottage unreservedly.

Mr Phil P,
