This is our "go to" place when we visit family and friends on our trips to the UK from Germany. We have been coming here for many years and have never been disappointed. A lovely cottage - one of 12 - which have been renovated from a farm in the Northumbrian countryside. Close to Newcastle, beaches, countryside and shopping it has many activities and attractions to offer. The cottage itself is cozy (warm in winter) with everything you need. 2 nice double bedded rooms which can be converted to twins if you need. The fire place in the living room was the old "forge", hence the name! In winter the owners decorate with a Christmas tree and leave a small gift - nice touch! Wifi works great, the staff are friendly, you can feed the nearby horses, what's not to love!
