The cottage was really lovely. It was much larger than we expected, expanding as we walked through the front door! It was very clean, extremely well equipped with everything one could need, and there was even a bottle of wine and some basic groceries like milk to greet us. All three generations enjoyed the space, could get away from each other if needing a rest, and the children were delighted with the dolls' house and rocking horse and games as well as playing outside, even in the rain, eating a few blackberries , and loved the little bridge too. We were able to sit outside on the decking and enjoy the wonderful views .
A fuse went late on Saturday evening which meant no central lighting upstairs, but plenty of table lamps provided light and we were able to contact the owners who arrived next day to fix it so all was well.
We loved walking in Kielder forest and even the stunning beach at Embleton in the pouring rain where we had a great party for 30 family members! We also enjoyed a good dinner at the friendly Redesdale Arms our first night, and the local shop in Otterburn was pretty well stocked.
We are keen to return and explore some of the many interesting and beautiful places nearby, like Hadrian's Wall, which we didn't have time to visit on this occasion.
Thank you very much for a most comfortable stay. Highly recommended!
