Excellent location, 10 min stroll from Alnwick and all it has to offer but easily accessible from the A1 too. Accommodation clean and spacious and lots of the little things provided which can be overlooked elsewhere. Whilst there was some building work going on, the builders were very courteous and we didn't hear them at work at all. Very friendly, helpful staff at the reservation office. First class service. Nothing too much trouble. Thank you.

On arrival, we were impressed by the beauty of the building. We were met by the owner who was very kind and friendly and who wanted to show us the property. Considering that we were the first guests to stay in this stunning house, she was amazingly chilled and told us to make it our own. Down stairs there was a very large open plan lounge, kitchen, and dining area with everything you could possibly need to live there never mind staying for a few days. To us it was like a beautiful show house. Everything was top quality, and luxurious from the carpets to the furniture and the kitchen units. There was also a very large TV with DVD player and a lot of films that we could watch. There was an outside raised decked area with a table, four chairs and sun umbrella, which meant we were able to enjoy the outside space. However if we wanted to take advantage of the outside without leaving the lounge, we could open the large bi-fold doors and bring the outside inside. Upstairs there were two large bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin, both beautifully decorated and very well appointed. Each room was en-suite with fabulous showers and wonderfully decorated. They also each had there own televisions. The owners also left us an amazing welcome pack, which included, tea, coffee, milk, cheese board, biscuits, bread, both white and brown,fruit, bottled water, and chocolate. They really had thought of everything to make our stay exceptional. We will definitely be back, we loved it. Thank you so much Julie and Mick. If you are thinking of booking this fabulous house, I would say don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed, not only is it an elegant property, but also, it is very central for discovering the beauty and majesty of Northumberland.
