The cottage is very spacious and really is off the beaten track. We were a party of 10 (6 adults, 4children and 3 dogs) we had plenty of room. The nearest shop as in the description is a good 10 minute drive away and is further to the nearest pub. The equipment is dated but it did not spoil our holiday.

The cottage was lovely and in a beautiful spot. We think the temperature in the left hand bathroom was set wrong as the water was cold every morning. Some of the plates pans and roasting trays had to be washed before we could use them and the shelves in the kitchen were not very clean apart from those minor things we had a wonderful family holiday Read moreenjoying the wildlife and the walks along the river and visiting the beautiful Northumberland countryside and many attractions.

Five of us had a wonderful holiday in Riverside cottage and there was plenty of space for double that number. It was peaceful, quiet and comfortable and we have come away feeling happy and relaxed.

We really enjoyed our stay, it was a perfect location for us 8 and 4 dogs, Lovely garden. I would say you need a car as its a few minutes drive from the nearest shop or pub. Heating was really good in one side of the house, not so good in the other, radiators didn't come on. It was perfect for us but is remote.
