“Self-catering gold - you'll want to change the locks and move in!”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Can't praise Honeysuckle Cottage at Longridge Farm highly enough. 3 generations of our family had an idyllic week there in July. The downstairs master bedroom with huge, brand-new, disabled-access ensuite was perfect for my parents in law, while the two spacious upstairs bedrooms gave the other two generations all the space and privacy we needed. The cottage itself is pristine, with high-quality bedding, towels and period furniture and a really spacious kitchen. We arrived on a blustery evening to find the fire already lit and the table set for tea, with scones and home-made cake. None of this happens by accident - host Robert clocks up nearly 20,000 steps a day on his Fitbit keeping all his holiday rentals in this condition. He lives in the Manor House just 200 meters away, and so is always on hand if you need him, yet never intrusive. He was especially kind in inviting our daughter to help give his pet llamas their tea - one of the highlights of the week for her.

Having never been to the Borders area, we had no idea just how beautiful it is, with a castle, neolithic stone circle, quaint village or stunning garden almost everywhere you turn. We were particularly captivated by Alnwick Castle and gardens, Bamburg Castle set above a mile of white strand, Lindisfarne monastery and of course the stone circle at Duddo, which is reached by walking through a field of chest-high rapeseed - all delightfully Wicker Man! We had a pub lunch every day at a different pub chosen at random, each one as good as the last. We even managed a day in Edinburgh, which is within easy reach. Every evening we returned to the cottage to find the fire lit for us and watched the sun go down behind the Cheviots over the huge wheatfield at the back. This really is a special place - private yet within a stone's throw of everything you'd want to see or do in the area; a character property yet with all the comforts necessary to make it as comfortable in winter as it was for us in summer. We'll be back!

“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed 15 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

What an amazing 6 week stay - Robert couldn't do enough for us, especially the ever replenished logs/coal for the fire!!
The cottage itself is so full of charming character yet fully equipped with every modern amenity you could wish for.
One of our party is in a wheelchair and the cottage catered for their needs perfectly.
Would highly recommend :)

“Heaven - so quiet and peaceful blissfully relaxing”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Cottage in wonderful setting with views over open countryside - perfect away from it all setting. This was our 4th visit and Robert keeps the standard very high. Cottage is kept immaculately clean and well presented. It even smells clean when you walk in. Wonderful log fires with coal and logs provided - not as in some places where they expect you to cart your own (when you are on holiday?)! The welcome tray of home baked cakes is delicious and a nice personal touch. This cottage has a bedroom with ensuite spacious wet room - perfect for those of us who are less mobile and a shower stool is provided. Tons of things to do in the area, spoilt for choice, can never fit everything in that we want to do.

“Fantastic holiday venue.”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We arrived at this superb cottage set in a quiet location near to Berwick to a roaring log fire, scones and chocolate cake, courtesy of Robert.The decor is really tastefully done with a hint of luxury. The views out to the Cheviot hills are beautiful. Everything we could possibly need was provided and the beds were so comfortable. Robert has spent a lot of time and money on these properties and they are a credit to him. It was nice that he came down to have a chat occasionally and check if we needed anything. We hope to return again soon and would certainly recommend this accommodation which is perfectly located to visit Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. We recommend The Salmon at East Ord, the Cross at Paxton and the Plough at Allardean for great meals. What a great holiday.

“Excellent accommodation which lived up to its glowing reviews”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at this cottage with my wife's elderly parents. It was one of the very best of the many we have rented in the past several decades, and Robert's hospitality (and the delicious scones and wood fire that greeted us) nudged it into top spot. The location was excellent with splendid views and easy access by road to the Northumberland coast and Scottish Borders. The cottage itself was beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“Peace and tranquility - perfect!”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My husband and I, our 9 month old and my mum stayed at Westlongridge farm for the 5th time (first time in Honeysuckle) and love it even more each time we visit! Robert is the perfect host and has created the perfect balance between the highest quality, luxury standard of accommodation, while allowing guests to feel completely relaxed and at ease.

The log fire is a highlight as are the comfy beds, not something you often find with holiday rentals!

The cottage provides the perfect base for visiting some of the most beautiful parts of Northumberland, but two 'musts' are Holy Island and Bamburgh!

We have been 5 times and will continue to visit for many a year to come.

Would highly recommend a visit.
