April Cottage is cosy, comfortable and very well appointed. Richard and Pam were excellent hosts. The surrounding area is fantastic for attractions and dog walking beaches which was our main requirement.

April Cottage is a small but perfectly formed cottage. April Cottage was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. A great location, near attractions, and with magnificent views. The nearby White Swan served a delicious meal, with friendly service - dogs allowed in bar area. Enjoyed the gardens at Alnwick Castle, particularly the water features and the Poison Garden.

I don’t normally write reviews but we truly did have one of our best family holidays at April Cottage this year! As soon as we arrived at the cottage we felt at home and the views along the coast and across to Holy Island were magical. The cottage is beautifully furnished and so well equipped and we really appreciated the ‘Welcome Pack’ full of local goodies. Whilst cosy, there was plenty of space for three adults and two children and the beds were so comfy I am planning to ask Pam and Richard what make they are! ?? – the fireplace is gorgeous and we could imagine how cosy it would be with the fire blazing, but we had no need to light it on this occasion – we will look forward to doing that when we go back in October! We needn’t have worried about amusing the kids either, as we had plenty to visit on our door step. We visited both Bamburgh and Alnwick Castle. The beaches at Bamburgh are just fabulous and of course, the dog had a brilliant time. We also had a trip to Holy Island and enjoyed freshly caught fish at the Crown and Anchor. When the weather wasn’t so kind on one of the days, we were all in the Games Room, which was great fun with the table football and the pool table. We would highly recommend this perfectly placed cottage and we look forward to our return trip in October, where a trip to Chillingham Castle is on the card (supposed to be very spooky). Thank you Pam and Richard ??
