    “This was our second stay at Bridge End cottage and was as enjoyable as the first!”

    Nice and warm inside despite the weather this last time! Plenty of space for a 2 bed cottage and room for the kids to kick a ball about in the back garden. Washing machine a bonus (also the keyboard!). Thropton well placed for walks on the moors, by the river, Simonside, Cragside, Alnwick, etc. Property clean, comfortable and spacious. Thanks!
