“lovely peaceful cottage in the country”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Laura the owner gave us clear, concise directions to the cottage and was very helpful on arrival. She explained everything we needed to know and even gave us hints and tips about the local area. The cottage was well presented and clean with everything we needed and it even had a fast WiFi connection so we could research about what was around the area. The farm is an organic farm and there is an abundance of wildlife all around. The views from the cottage were fantastic and we enjoyed watching the Hares, house martins and Sika deer in the field behind the cottage. We loved the peace and quiet of the cottage and with Berwick upon Tweed only 3 ish miles away with 3 of the main supermarkets your never far from 'civilisation. Top marks for the cottage and Laura the owner

Thank you so much for your feedback. It is fantastic to hear you had a great holiday. I am going to leave the list of the RSPB sighted birds in the cottage. That way future guests can see if they can also spot the 51 surveyed species! Very much hope to see you all again in the future.

“Fabulous cottage”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed from Sunday 4th to Tuesday 6th May with our two springer spaniels and loved it! Cottage was a very high standard, with fresh eggs, flowers and milk for our arrival. The farm, animals and surrounding areas were just lovely. We went to Cheswick beach on the Monday with the dogs and they had a ball !!! We also walked up to the Plough Inn for some dinner at night and the food was fab. Overall, could not fault it. We are looking forward to coming back again soon.

We stayed from Friday to Sunday at linnet cottage and had a fantastic time. We were greeted by Laura the owner who was lovely and friendly and showed us round the cottage. We were provided with milk, eggs, tea , coffee. The cottage was immaculate and had the most fantastic outlook over the fields. Ten minute drive into Berwick where on Friday evening we went to the maltings to see a band, Saturday we spent in Berwick town and decided to spend the evening In the cottage with an M& S meal for two. I would definitely go back to linnet cottage, clean, well appointed, fab views, tranquil and great value for money! If your wanting to chill out and recharge this is the place to go. Thank you to Laura for making us feel so welcome.
