Last minute decision to take my mum away for a few days. Found April cottage and so glad I did. It was very important that the location would be good for my dog, a leggy labradoodle. The garden was perfect for her to explore as was totally enclosed and I don't have to worry about her wandering off. My family have always loved the coast around Bamburgh and only a couple of minutes in the car to get there for lots of walks.... even in the snow as we got caught in 'the beast from the east'. Shelter was found one day at the Bamburgh castle inn in seahouses. Lovely welcoming pub and great food. The cottage was perfect for what we needed and had everything that we could have thought about needing. Both upstairs bedrooms are en suite and decorated in a style that compliments to cottage completely. We kept finding new features that brought a smile to our faces. Often when you go self catering you find a put together set of kitchen items however I think this kitchen was better equipped than mine! Overall a wonderful short break. Thank you.

April Cottage was perfect in every way. The cottage was warm and cosy, very well equipped, has stunning views and was in a good location for beaches, walks and local towns. The owners were really welcoming and helpful and told us where the nearest local shops were, local pubs and eating places etc. We had wanted to visit Alnwick Castle and Bamburgh Castle but unfortunately all of the main attractions had closed for the winter season the week before our stay. Our half term seemed to be much later than everyone else but this gives us a good excuse to return. The weather was very kind to us so we enjoyed flying kites on Bamburgh beach and walking through the village. We loved our boat trip with Billy Shiels around the Farne Islands where we saw new born seal pups, highly recommend this but you need to wrap up if going out during the winter months. Alnwick is a lovely town and Barter Books is a must, for the cafe as well as the books. Sit in the old waiting room where there is a roaring fire whilst enjoying a cream tea or something equally yummy from the menu. The walk through the town, past the castle and along the river is lovely, starting at the Tourist Information office and finishing at Barter Books. On the way home we drove through some of the National Park stopping at Rothbury and Otterburn and several stops along Hadrian Wall. The scenery is stunning. There is so much more that we would like to see and do so a return for us is a must.

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.
