    “Had a great stay at Cosy Nook and would probably stay again.”

    Just a few things that could improve things would be a thorough clean/dust as evidence of long term cobwebs throughout the house and artificial flowers in the bedroom absolutely covered in dust! Rugs in the hallway were annoying as they ruckled up all the time, trip hazard! We also found a number of mouse droppings particularly on the stairs to the first floor, I realise any house can have mice but for these to be still on the carpet on arrival is not a good first ...

    Just a few things that could improve things would be a thorough clean/dust as evidence of long term cobwebs throughout the house and artificial flowers in the bedroom absolutely covered in dust! Rugs in the hallway were annoying as they ruckled up all the time, trip hazard! We also found a number of mouse droppings particularly on the stairs to the first floor, I realise any house can have mice but for these to be still on the carpet on arrival is not a good first impression! Fridge not switched on for our arrival only noticed the following day, when a bag of ice cubes left by previous tenants melted in the ice box and left a big pool of water on the floor! Garden overgrown a little and would have sat outside on the garden chairs had they not been dirty and covered with green algae, I wouldn’t expect to have to clean these ourselves. The addition of a hairdryer would of been useful. All that said the house was lovely and had a particularly nice kitchen and nice period features, not the creepy teddies in the bedroom’s and so many artificial flowers. Whilst we knew the property didn’t have WIFI When we booked, it was very inconvenient as nowadays everything is booked online! Ps as we had a lovely warm week we did water the Pansies in the garden!

About the location

ALNWICK

Alnmouth 4 miles; Bamburgh 15 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.

The attractive and historic market town of Alnwick is dominated by Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland. The Castle Gardens, opened in 2002, are home to Europe's largest cascading water feature, a fabulous (and enormous) treehouse, a delightful rose garden and a beautiful, walled ornamental garden, which will delight novice and experienced gardeners alike. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films! The town's narrow streets have seen little change since the days when the London to Edinburgh stage coach passed through and the Market Place, with its stone cross, is still the central feature and the ideal venue for the weekly Saturday market. Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
