Dear Tim & Gemma,

'We have enjoyed a very relaxing weekend in this superbly presented cottage. The standard of the cottage is excellent with some beautiful furnishings to match.

Would recommend the Newcastle Hotel in Rothbury for Sunday lunch and also a pint or two at The Star Inn just up the road'.
'The holiday was very enjoyable, facilities excellent, cottage immaculate on arrival. The information pack provided was extremely useful and we enjoyed meals at Italia and The Cook & Barker Inn.

'This is one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in - apart from the wonderful location (we spent hours watching the sun and cloud on Simonside or Cheviot) and abundant bird life, the comfort and facilities of the cottage itself made for a wonderful stay. The beds are fantastic (two of us have bad backs but the mattresses here caused us no problems at all!). Everything is so nicely presented and designed to make one feel at home. The little details such as wooden hangers in the wardrobe, all show an attention to "doing things right". From the moment we entered and found your welcome card and bottle of wine we have enjoyed our stay. Thank you!'

'Dear Tim and Gemma
We very much enjoyed our stay at Burnfoot this last Autumn half term. Beautiful location and very cosy, well appointed accommodation. We were able to completely relax and enjoy the stunning countryside of Northumberland. The wood burner was a very welcome comfort on those dark and chilly evenings! We felt very welcome and were delighted with our cottage, the perfect place to escape.
