“Cosy cottage perfect for 2 with dog.”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Cottage is well equipped, clean with all mod cons. Best bed we have had on holiday for ages!! The situation of the cottage is quite remote, but a short drive takes you to some amazing beaches great for walking the dog. Some interesting places to visit Holy Island, Berwick and Farne Islands well worth a boat trip to see the birds nesting and seals.

Thank you for your lovely comments, glad to hear you slept well (very important on holiday)! Linnet Cottage is situated on a farm 5 miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed and our nearest pub is 5 minutes by car or 15 minutes on foot. I am pleased you had some great weather for the beach and the Farne Islands. Makes all the difference when you can see Lindisfarne Castle in sunshine! Thank you for staying with us and I hope to see you again soon.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments, they are much appreciated. It's lovely to hear you enjoyed the restaurants we recommended, The Plough Inn and Audela in Berwick. Cheswick beach is awsome, and it's even better you got a fantastic weekend to walk along it. Hope to see you all again soon.

“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.
