Excellent property, well equipped and comfortable. Deceptively spacious, large kitchen/ diner and good size bedrooms. Loved the map wallpaper - we were able to plan our days over breakfast. Lovely little village but only a shop and a cafe so need to drive to get to nearest pub

The Bothy is a great base for exploring the surrounding Northumberland countryside. Longhoughton is fairly quiet. Theres a nice walk on the beach road to exercise your dog.
