Winter Break
Stayed at Linnet Cottage for 10 days in November. The cottage is warm and cosy and has everything needed. Alhough the cottage is situated on a farm the roads leading to it are good and not far from the main access road between Coldstream and Berwick-upon-Tweed and to the A1. Laura made us super welcome and there we're nice touches in the cottage like fresh flowers, dog towel/bowl and proper Ordnance Survey maps of the area. Laura responded to all our queries over the 10 days. Fresh eggs can be bought from the farm and arrangements made for them to be left on the doorstep. Although most fields appeared quite bare at this time of year we were lucky to see plenty of wildlife around the area including deer, a weasel and many birds of prey. We would definitely stay again in the future. Di and Tim and Kodi

Fabulous relaxing stay
We stayed at Linnet cottage for a couple of days and had the most restful time. The cottage is in a lovely rural location which offers peace and quiet for your stay and has everything you need for a relaxing break. Laura provided us with a wealth of local knowledge of places to eat and visit, and there is a really useful information book in the cottage. The view over the fields from the lounge/ diner and bedroom is wonderful, as is the sunset. We visited Lindisfarne, Etal, Wooler and Berwick, all within easy driving distance. We had a lovely relaxinv stay and would love to visit again and definitely recommend the property for anyone wishing to have a quiet restful break away from our busy lives.

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Ideal for peace and quiet.
This delightful cottage is set within a working farm but this caused no problems or disturbances at all. Everything you need is provided for you, just bring food and clothes. Sit in the garden and have a drink, see if you can hear any traffic noise.... I couldn't! It's within a short drive of Berwick and Spittal beach is ideal to exercise your dog and it's free parking here!
