We wanted to explore Northumberland a little more, having been coming to stay with friends in Newcastle for decades. We certainly found a wonderful location in Fenton Hill cottages-the peace and tranquility they offer was delightful. We stayed in 2 bedroom Bramble and our friends came to stay with us for a change! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable with beds already made-up for our arrival (a blessing as we were quite late arriving after a long drive) and towels and toiletries were provided-also a nice touch. The kitchen was very well appointed with a walk-in pantry that had extra storage and equipment as well. Another lovely touch is the birdfeeders outside the living room windows, we were regularly visited by woodpeckers and many other birds. Fenton Hill is an excellent location to travel to many of Northumberland's beautiful places inland and on the coast. Hugh and Margaret are lovely, genial hosts, and youngsters are bound to love the pet pigs, goats and Bumble the donkey who share the farm too. I would definitely recommend the cottages to anyone wanting fresh air along with beautiful views and peace and quiet.
