The Cottages in Northumberland website provides good photos and description which attracted me to make the booking. I wasn't disappointed when we arrived as it was better than expected. This cottage is spotlessly clean everywhere and well decorated. It is better equipped than average for cooking, eating and laundering. The TV is a good size and the sofas comfortable. The bed linen and towels are of good quality as is the furniture in the cottage. We want to return to Simonside View in the near future and certainly recommend it to everyone. I found the online chat very helpful in making a selection as the young lady put forward three good options which met my requirements. The booking details were emailed expediently and were clear with additional helpful information about the area. This is the best cottage we have ever stayed at. The location is close to local facilities and there are superb views from the cottage with lots of footpaths to explore locally. Linda the owner kindly came to sort out a self inflicted heating problem and was very helpful.

Fantastic property with the most wonderful views. The cottage was exceptionally well equipped with extras in the kitchen which were really helpful for a short break.

A well equipped holiday home in a beautiful setting looking across to the Simonside Hills. It's on the doorstep of the National Trust property Cragside where we spent a fantastic day. We were also within very easy reach of the coast at Amble, a 15 minutes drive from Alnwick, and an hour or so to Hadrian's Wall at Housesteads. There's a lot to see and do in this beautiful area, the only trouble being trying to fit it all in.
