Yet another wonderful stay- think it's the 4th? A lovely place to stay and Cathy goes out of her way to be helpful. Weather mixed but good – from shorts and T shirts on the Pennine Way to waterproofs on the Rothbury Terraces. Walked miles. Had a nice meal at The Granby at Longframlington. Fabulous as always here- will return. Two weeks isn't long enough.

We have had a lovely comfortable stay. The weather has not been kind- but we have enjoyed our visit to this lovely part of the countryside. We especially enjoyed walking walking the dogs on the fantastic beaches. We also thoroughly enjoyed Wallington and Lindisfarne. We really appreciated the food at The Three Wheat Heads in nearby Thropton. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Margaret & Brian

Our first visit to Northumberland; we've had a lovely week, warm weather mixed with cool breezes, warm sunny periods with horizontal drizzle! Typical British summer. But it has been lovely as The Croft is an excellent home from home – very comfortable, so well equipped and so easy to relax in. Lovely views. First time round these parts – try these 3 'not to be missed' places to visit: Alnwick – the Castle and Barter Books – amazing; Cragside, National Trust- just up the road – ditto and Bamburgh- castle, coast and scenery. Thanks Cathy – much appreciated.

Our 2nd visit to the lovely 'Croft'. The weather could have been kinder to us this year but we still had a lovely time and enjoyed the countryside so much. The cottage was, as always, so welcoming and thank you Cathy  for the goodies and your welcome on our arrival. A very special place.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in your lovely house. Wonderful location and beautiful views from all  rooms. Such a shame none of us can play the piano but we had fun pretending!

Barry, Sara & Steph
+ dog

Where to start? We have loved every single moment of our short stay in this truly Victorian house in such a beautiful position; sun flooded rooms (and sleet blustering up the valley!) all with such character – ( the window seat and shutters!!) ; the log burner (with thermostat!) ;the grand piano (wow what a treat!!). Great walks for the dog too – river, dale and forests! It has been IDYLLIC. Thanks too for the warm welcome and the basket of goodies. We hope to be back.

14 - 21 Feb 2015

Alison, Neil & Cora May

Fantastic cottage in a lovely location, ideal for exploring Northumberland. You made our stay very comfortable, the little welcome treats when we arrived are a lovely touch and the cottage is very well equipped. The log burner kept us lovely and cosy during the night. Hope to visit again, thanks for a lovely week.

Kevin and Lynne
+ dogs

We really enjoyed our stay at The Croft: beautiful place, lovely surroundings, couldn't ask for more. The cottage is great and the local bakers a delight. The walks right on the doorstep are fantastic for us with dogs – no need to travel. Been to the area before and love the coastline – fantastic beaches. Keilder Water is worth a visit, great walks. Thanks for a fantastic week.

Tom, Debora  Franca and Dylan

Our first trip to Northumberland and our first family holiday with our 6 month old son. We've enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Croft and have felt very at home here. A perfect setting to spend a cosy and relaxing Christmas Day too. Thanks for the decorations and tree. Enjoyed day trips to Hadrian's  Wall, Alnwick Tree house, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Walkworth and Alnmouth. We hope to come back – we had no idea how many spectacular things are scattered around Northumberland – plenty left to see and do – a week certainly was not long enough.
