"If looking for peace and quiet in a characterful property set in a picturesque village yet within half an hour of the coast and many places of interest then this cottage would be for you. The beds are very comfortable and the towels fresh, white and fluffy. All linen is impeccably laundered and the property clean and tidy throughout. The rustic nature of the kitchen and sitting room make it homely. It is quaint, quirky and charming. There are some lovely local walks and a lot of history both in the village and the locality as well as the whole county of Northumberland."
