Lovely cottage, very well equipped and in good location close to A1. Other positives include: detailed instructions and cottage folder (extremely comprehensive); standard of cottage furniture and fittings, inc original features; general location - pretty river walks and The Running Fox cafe/deli opposite. The only slight downside is that whilst it's close to the river it's not right beside it as we'd gained the impression it would be and the compact courtyard is overlooked by neighbours. Overall very enjoyable and a cottage we would happily return to.
PS. The fitting on bath tap is not working meaning it's not possible to change water flow from shower to bath (meant to leave a note so you could fix for next occupants).
This was our second stay in Riverside Cottage and we enjoyed it as much as our first. The area is great particularly with a pub and the brilliant Running Fox cafe close by. We would highly recommend Riverside Cottage as a base to explore Northumberland.
We had a wonderful week in Northumberland in March.
The cottage is close to lots of major attractions - too many for a week.
the coast is beautiful and so is the countryside.
the cottage was perfect. A lovely welcome pack of goodies from the bakery over the road was there for us on our arrival.
The Northumberland arms close by manages to combine being a proper pub servingseveral excellently kept beers with providing serious fine dining.
I would recommend this cottage whole heartedly.
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.
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.
