We holiday with our dogs in the UK 2 or 3 times a year, staying in self catering properties and I can honestly say, this is one of the best I've stayed in. The apartment is bright, airy and spacious and from the delicious welcome gift to thoughtful touches such as the Christmas tree and dog towels, the owner has thought of everything.

There is excellent walking straight from the door and Rothbury has all the amenities you could need. Cragside (NT property) is on the outskirts of the village and always worth a visit and you are close to lovely towns such as Alnwick and Morpeth. For a refreshing walk along the beach, the coast is only 30 minutes away.

All-in-all, an absolute gem of a property in a beautiful village - what more could you ask for?!!

“Gorgeous property”
Reviewed 24 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We are staying at this immaculate spacious property right now. It is extremely spacious and has absolutely everything that could be possibly needed. A lovely hamper is provided. It is tucked away behind a church and close to the river in this lovely village. I am sure we will be back again soon!

“An Excellent Place in a Charming Village”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were in River Neuk for a week in mid-May. The flat is light and spacious and very well appointed with comfortable, tasteful furniture. It has pretty much all that anyone would need. The welcome basket with bread, tea, etc. was a nice touch. It has all that the specs promised and more, even a little library of left-behind books. It is tucked away on a pedestrian way, so bringing baggage to the flat means walking from wherever you managed to find a parking space (our initial one was in front of the church, about 100 yards away). We had not been to Rothbury before and it took a little while to discover the flat’s entry was round the rear, not on the apparent street Google Maps (or the booking site's picture) showed.

We had a very pleasant stay, but there were three minor niggles: the first was that the previous tenants had managed to pull off the shower curtain, so showers were impossible. Even a temporary shampoo spray would have been helpful. Also the combi boiler needed required fine tuning of the tap to produce hot (as opposed to warm) water for the bath; the third was the time lock on the front door, which disabled itself at least a quarter of an hour before the promised 10am, which meant that we couldn’t lock the flat when we left.

Rothbury is a lovely place with much to do see and do and some very good pubs and restaurants (particularly the Newcastle and the Indian over The Railway pub). We were so impressed with Cragside that we went round the house twice! We have already thought about returning to Northumberland and to River Neuk next year.

“Lovely cottage in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 17 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We originally booked to stay in Riverside Cottage in West Thirston, however due to an issue with that cottage we were offered a stay at River Neuk instead. This was all handled very well by Darren, we recieved a refund for the difference in price and did not impact on our holiday at all. River Neuk is a lovely little cottage, there were only two of us staying there but there is plenty of space for up to 4 people. The cottage is incredibly well equipped in every area and there is plenty to do inside - WiFi, television, DVD player, Nintendo Wii, games, books etc. We also received a lovely welcome basket of items from the local shop and bakery which was a great touch. Rothbury itself is a lovely town, and River Neuk is positioned less than a minutes walk from the riverside - there are plenty of picnic benches along the river which is perfect for when the weather is good. River Neuk is also a great base to explore Northumberland, we visited Hadrian's wall, Lindisfarne, Seahouses, Bamburgh, Edinburgh, Alnwick, Alnmouth and more! All of these are within driving distance. Also in the cottage is a fantastic guide put together by the owners which covers everything from the cottage facilities to local areas to visit to local restaurants - very helpful for those who have not visited the area before like us! All in all a fantastic stay - thanks to Northumberland Holidays, hopefully we will return soon!

“Perfect base for expoloring Northumberland”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Beautiful cottage, really well equipped and in a lovely setting. Only downside is the courtyard to sit in isn't private, it is just a small yard that is private. Luckily the river is 2 seconds away so easy to exercise the dogs and picnic benches there to enjoy the sunshine. Would still stay there again, it was everything we needed.
