"The facilities in the 5* cottage were fabulous!…"
The facilities in the 5* cottage were fabulous. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated, each having its own television and sky box – everything you needed to hand.
In the main open plan living area we relaxed watching television in front of the wood burning stove looking out through the patio doors onto a beautifully landscaped private garden. The kitchen and dining areas were very well equipped – there was even a welcome hamper including a bottle of our favourite wine waiting upon our arrival. There was ample for the children too, lots of games, books, toys, consoles, etc.
Our children settled into the outdoor farm life straight away. Allison showed them how to feed the pigs and sheep. They were even allowed to collect fresh eggs from the chicken coup which was very exciting!
An added bonus was the huge outdoor trampoline as our children are all budding gymnasts.
Nothing was a bother for owners Allison and Ian and what delightful children they have – they showed our children the play area and soon began making dig outs and hide and seek dens together.
Allison and Ian mentioned a few of the local areas of interest. On one of the days, we took a lovely stroll along the beach into Bamburgh where the castle is stunning. We also visited some of the hidden beaches along that part of the coast.
We can’t wait to go back in the spring/summer months when Allison and Ian said the children would be able to bottle feed the lambs too!Read moreLess
