“Lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a lovely little cottage and the owners were very friendly and helpful. What really makes it great is the location. Northumberland offers so many interesting days out and this cottage is within easy driving distance of most. A car really is essential as the village is quite small so bigger shops require a drive, also the cottage sits on a busy road with no path which we were not very comfortable walking on so we tended to drive to the village even though its only a 15 minute walk. However the village is only a minutes drive and has a small shop for essentials. It also has two nice pubs which both serve good food, we particularly liked the food at the Granby. The cottage is pet friendly as are many of the attractions in Northumberland so we found we could often take our dog with us. I would definitely recommend this cottage and Northumberland as an area.

A truly fabulous place to stay.Everything is as described, Chris and Sue couldn't be more friendly and helpful if they tried! Woodburning stove is lovely. Its our first time in 'studio' accommodation and we'll do it again... so very easy to keep tidy! Longframlington is a beautiful little village, the people are very friendly, plus, holiday destinations are all within a half hour's drive, except for Lindisfarne which is well worth a visit or two.
All in all a thoroughly wonderful holiday was had by my hubby and I.

Liked best: oh dear..... the view from the kitchen window, especially the sunsets
Liked least: No direct access to the garden as there is no 'back' door

“A perfect relaxing stay”
Reviewed February 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a really lovely time here. The studio was really clean and cosy. There was a great view from the kitchen window, the kitchen was full of everything we needed. We loved using the wood burning stove on an evening and the owners made sure we had enough wood to use. The location was a great base for visiting different spots in the area and the village had a good shop and pub. I would definitely recommend this as a relaxing break away.

A charming studio apartment with all modern facilities but which retains its' original character. Conveniently situated for local walks as well as visits to places of interest within the National Park. The property is situated just outside the village of Longframlington which contains a well stocked shop, and dining facilities. Also conveniently close to Alnwick, a lovely market town packed with larger shops and restaurants.
The property owners, Chris and Sue, are most welcoming and do everything to ensure that your stay is pleasant and relaxing. And the views from the kitchen window are stunning!
