    “Owl cottage .”

    .... WOW !!!! The pictures on the website DO NOT do Owl Cottage proper justice, at all. It is actually much bigger than we expected and is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. Everything about the cottage is outstanding and every single detail is finished to the highest standard. We could not have wished for a better base, for our short break. Morpeth and the surrounding is just a treasure trove of interesting things to see and do.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. It's always lovely to hear how much our guests have enjoyed their stay in Owl Cottage. We agree, Morpeth is a gem of a place with so much in and around it to discover! We hope you will come back and explore more in future. Property Owner
