Family from Bingley, United Kingdom Aug 2016

Lovely cottage with everything needed for comfortable stay. Peaceful village location with great access to all places of interest. Welcome basket from' The Running Fox 'was a welcome bonus after a long journey. A lovely relaxing week spending quality time with family in homely relaxing surroundings, would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.

Family from Stockport, United Kingdom Jul 2016

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at Riverside Cottage. It was cosy, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The welcome pack was outstanding, we've never encountered a more scrumptious one! The accessibility of the cottage to the coast and the tourist hotspots was excellent. We were delighted to be able to bring our two dogs along. The walk into the woods and alongside the river was lovely and made up for the lack of garden space. We weren't altogether happy with allocated parking spot on the bend alongside the crash barrier outside the cottage, so simply parked in the Northumberland Arms car park or across the bridge outside the Running Fox. Take note, lack of a mobile phone signal in the village is an issue. The wifi was good however and the home phone was a useful means for family to keep in touch with us. Would definitely recommend and would book again ourselves.

Couple from Rotherham, United Kingdom Jun 2016

This was a lovely property in a quiet location, the rooms were nicely furnished and everything worked as it should.
The welcome basket was a nice touch.
Local facilities were good for the size of the village.
Parking could be an issue at busy weekends

A comfortable homely cottage well situated in a pleasant and convenient position in the village.

Couple from Coventry, United Kingdom Jun 2015

"Best cottage ever" Kids booked this cottage as a Christmas present and their research certainly paid off. Everything was perfect from the location to the cottage itself. The thought that had gone into it by the owners was obvious including the lovely welcome hamper and an excellent guide handbook. Just off the A1 and minutes away by car to fantastic beaches. Our poodle loved it too with lovely walks just outside. Will definitely be returning.

"A marvellous base from which to explore the south of Northumberland" Riverside Cottage offers quality accommodation, perfect for a couple. All the amenities are there and especially helpful are the many laminated guidance notes for the electrical appliances, heating, TV etc. The location sits midway between coast and hill country, a mere 10 minute drive from the fine town of Alnwick. Directly outside the cottage is a most scenic bridge and stretch of the river Coquette. The most amazing artisan bakery and cafe is opposite.

"A little gem" Lovely cottage, well equipped and in a lovely position for the A1 making it easy to get out and about. Lots of lovely places to visit some with free parking, a rarity nowadays, beautiful beaches, good eating places, and a pleasure to drive around on the many somewhat empty roads, and if like us you did not want to drive every day there was an excellent bus service right on your doorstep. The cottage benefited from the Running Fox bakery across the road but we were thankful we only had a week otherwise we would have been a stone heavier than when we arrived, an amazing shop. All in all a lovely cottage in a lovely village surrounded by lovely countryside.
