    “We had had an amazing week in Tartaria, the hosts Yvonne & Ray go above and beyond with the facilities and welcome pack, everything you need is there.”

    We loved the power shower plenty of hot water and the mattress was comfortable however the cream leather sofa in the living room was very low and was uncomfortable after a time so had to switch to the brown sofa. That being said it would not deter us from returning to Tartaria in the future. Northumberland is a wonderful area with lots of places to visit, Tynemouth, Warkworth, Cragside, Bamburgh and Holy Island are a must whilst you stay.

That being said it would not deter us from returning to Tartaria in the future. Northumberland is a wonderful area with lots of places to visit, Tynemouth, Warkworth, Cragside, Bamburgh and Holy Island are a must whilst you stay. Morpeth lovely for a dull day and La Rosso Italian restaurant does a lunch time special menu the food was so good then you can go into the park up to Morpeth Castle or the riverside walk. We also had a wonderful week weather wise so were able to sit in the lovely garden in the evening with a glass of wine.

    Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Tartaria and Northumberland. Regarding the sofas - our guests have different preferences, some prefer a low/soft seat or a high/firm seat, hence two versions. We try our best to accommodate all our guests' needs and welcome your comments. With best wishes, Ray and Yvonne. Property Owner

About the location

WIDDRINGTON

Morpeth 8.4 miles; Amble 6 miles;

Widdrington is a village located around eight miles north east of Morpeth, an ideal place for exploring the county of Northumberland in an area wonderful for walkers, cyclists and bird-watchers. The local parish church is Grade I listed and dates to the Norman era, commanded by elevated ruins of the 18th century Widdrington Castle. The country park at Druridge Bay is less than two miles away and the bustling little seaport of Amble, situated at the mouth of the River Coquet, can also be reached easily. Historically a centre for boatbuilding, Amble offers a marina, a harbour, sandy beaches and coastal walks to the bird sanctuary at Hauxley. Large fishing boats moor along the harbour wall and land a variety of fish, prawns, crabs and lobsters - the daily catch can be bought at a fish shop in the harbour. A mile south of Amble is Coquet Island, an RSPB reserve with a large population of terns, puffins and eider ducks, which boat trips can be arranged around. The pretty coastal villages of Alnmouth and Craster, as well as numerous superb beaches, are only a short drive away, whilst the National Trust’s Wallington Hall and Cragside are also within easy reach. Be sure to visit picturesque Warkworth and its castle, plus the charming town of Alnwick with its castle and award-winning gardens too.
