Becky – Sept 2023

Last minute booking and what a find. Beautiful cottage, homely in an idyllic location. Stunning, relaxing home from home. Would definitely return!


Absolutely beautiful cottage in tranquil place.
MerryView was spotless and made us feel like home. A perfect place to get away from a busy city life.

Lovely holiday cottage, spotlessly clean, so peaceful and quiet except for the sounds of bird song.
We did walk to the pub!
Thank you both for a super welcome pack, hopefully we will return next year with the family.

Jan & David April 2023

We have enjoyed a lovely week in Tawny Nook Cottage! A great welcome hamper upon our arrival and a super comfortable cottage, best beds we have ever slept in! We enjoyed visiting Cragside House & Gardens, Alnwick Castle and evening walks along golden sandy beaches at Alnmouth and Hauxley. So peaceful and quiet we didn't want to leave.

David & Jane – September 2022

We cannot wait to return to Merryview.
A lovely cottage with everything you need and more, great views of deer from the lounge window. Cragside House is on the doorstep and we enjoyed some great walks around the estate. Amble Harbour - for its Sunday Market and enjoyed some great fresh seafood at The Old Boat House.
Thank you so much and we will be back!

Duffin Family from Leicestershire

"We have enjoyed our first visit to Northumberland. The cottage is fantastic, and in such a peaceful location. Nice to have no street lights or noisy neighbours.
We have visited Dunstanbourgh Castle via the coastal path from Craster. Alnwick Gardens, Holy Island, Druridge Bay ( wonderful beach) Farne Islands - although the Puffins had gone but lots of Seals. Rothbury is nice and we had a drive through part of the National Park. We recommend this cottage to our family and friends."

Halliwell Family from Lancashire
