We stayed here for 4 days. The accommodation and amenetied were as described. The place was clean with Welcome bottle of red wine, eggs and home made cookies - pleasant touch.
The sheets, towels were clean and cottage which is set in very quiet surroundings allowed us to travel & walk along the coastal paths.
Excellent uninterrupted wifi, which an intrepid traveller will like
We will return to Northumberland next year and hopefully stay in this beautiful cottage.
Thank you Victoria for excellent information, maps and books of local interest.
Lovely cottage in country location. Very comfortable with every need thought of.
Ideal location for visiting places of interest in the region. Very quiet for relaxing and getting away if you need it. Highly recommended.
This if the first property I have rented in the UK and I hope all future cottages are to this standard. The owner was really helpful and made our stay a total pleasure with the inclusion of some thoughtful additions. The cottage was very clean and in a peaceful location. The owner has provided plenty of maps and books relating to the local area. Simply put despite the poor weather we had a great week.
Very well equipped cottage in an ideal location to explore the region.
Close enough to all the places we wanted to go so no long car trips to the beaches and sites we wanted to visit.
The cottage itself is clean , tidy and well maintained as well as being comfortable and homely . We would recommend the two eateries in Lucker , down the road from the cottage ( Apple Inn / Apple Core ) . We would definitely return knowing that we had everything we could want as a base to do more exploring of Northumberland
We booked Shearling Cottage as we hadn't been to the area before and from the map it seemed an ideal location to explore the Northumberland coast - we particularly like birdwatching and castles and other historic sites.
The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped - we had fine weather so didn't need the wood burning stove but it would be cosy in cold weather. The views across the fields in both directions are beautiful and we enjoyed watching hares in the fields as well as farmland birds.
The location just 1 mile from the A1 and 6 miles from Seahouses meant that we didn't have to drive far to get to interesting places on the coast and inland. We enjoyed boat trips to the Farne Islands and to Coquet Island, we walked stretches of the coast path and had amazing fish and chips in Seahouses. We also visited Cragside NT, Holy Island and several castles. However we didn't didn't have time in a week to see everything so we'll definitely return to stay at Shearling Cottage again sometime.
Shearling Cottage is one of the best holiday rentals we have ever taken in the UK. The cottage is very comfortable, has a well equipped kitchen and a generous living room with an open fire. It's close to the spectacular Northumberland coast with beautiful beaches and historic sites such as Lindisfarne, Dunstanburgh and Warkworth to explore. Alnwick Castle and the gorgeous Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders are also easily accessible. The cottage is close to the A1 trunk road for easy access, but far enough away that it's quiet and peaceful. There are supermarkets, pubs and other essential services close by at Belford and Seahouses.
Booking was really easy and the owners responded quickly to our initial enquiry. We had a warm welcome with fresh farm eggs, a bottle of wine and some very moreish flapjacks provided. The owners also responded quickly to any questions we had during our stay at Shearling Cottage.
A really great find and would love to return in the future.
