“Quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed 1 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Cottage was perfect for 2, well equipped and comfortable and v clean, off road parking was useful. Beautiful views from the living room and bedroom and so quiet. Laura was very helpful with suggestions for places to visit and we really appreciated the fresh eggs. The area is perfect for cycling as the lanes are so quiet and we recommend the ride to Etal and Ford - we probably saw 6-10 cars for the whole day. Shopping facilities are close by in Berwick along with lovely beaches. We had a v relaxing 2 days and hope to return soon.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Fantastic feedback is always wonderful to hear. A lot of guests remark there is much more to see and do than they realise when booking! We are so lucky to live in such a peaceful place with gorgeous beaches and historical sites but no crowds.

We very much hope to welcome you back. I have left the postcards in the cottage so other guests can find inspiration for local places to visit.

Kind regards
Laura

“Relaxing week at linnet cottage”
Reviewed 3 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Thank you Laura for such a great cottage we found it so relaxing just what we both needed. John and myself found such interesting places to visit during our week seeing wildlife in the fields whilst having breakfast and evening meal was a great bonus. The cottage itself warm and welcoming and the added touches of flowers eggs milk was very much appreciated. Thank you hope to return again next year.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed your holiday and the cottage was just as you wanted. Thank you for telling me of the good places you found for meals out - The Castle Hotel in Berwick and The Black Bull in Lowick. The Cross inn at Paxton is another good place to try when you return!

“Peaceful and idealy situated”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

the flowers, milk & fresh eggs were a lovely welcome treat. Spotless throughout and very comfortable bed. On the minus side the tv was way too high up the wall to view and the sofa/chair were basic. The area was so peaceful & relaxing and convenient for Berwick-upon-Tweed and the Holy Islands. Just one word of advice - beware of the toilet seat - ill fitting and beware of the drop down lid!!!!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“Absolutely brilliant.”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A super cottage, very well presented with all the mod cons. Kitchen equipment, towels and bed linen of the highest quality. The king size bed is a dream. Quiet, remote, rural. Sheep and lambs in the field next door visible from your pillow !!
Handy for Berwick on Tweed with its town walls and Lowry Trail.
Would you stay there again YES.
