Stayed Monday 07 October 2013 with Couple
We had a great stay. the building and surrounding areas were just lovely. Our apartment was extremely clean & very well equipped. One small drawback was we had no phone service. Apparently it only worked if you were with Vodaphone.
Stayed Friday 09 August 2013 with Family
We fell in love with the area and will certainly be going back.
A fantastic apartment I could happily live in. Spacious, comfortable, well equipment. Great views. Within walking distance of Thropton & Rothbury.
Great location and spectacular views with a big garden for the children to safely run around in and explore. The interior fittings are of a very high quality, although crockery and glassware (probably through breakages over time) insufficient for the six people this appartment accomodates. Wifi a recent addition and really useful for boosting mobile telephone reception which is otherwise poor due the rural location. Only major problem is not enough hot water at bath/shower times - despite pre-warning the owner before this last visit (as this had been a problem on both previous visits) we ran out of water in the mornings and evenings. Despite this perennial problem, this is our third visit which is a testament to how wonderful a time we have when visiting Westcliffe House.
Second time we have stayed here and found the apartment very good, meeting the needs of our family. It remains well equipped and spacious with a tremendous view across the cocquet valley. The Visitor book had several requests for wifi broadband which the owner installed while we were there!!! We enjoyed using it and if visitors want to "escape" simply turn it off. Could do with a coat of paint to bring it back to the excellent appearance when we first visited in 2009. Overall very good and woiudl recommend the apartment and location to anyone who wants a beatiful country break , nice shops in town (must try the butchers!) and access to the Borders and Northumbrian Coast
Beautiful scenery, very nice property, fully equiped and very near the town centre. Would definitely recommend to friends and would like to return one day myself!
