Cottage Review:  

My husband, my 3 children inc a baby and I stayed here for a few days and loved it. The house was well located near the amenities in Berwick and the sights of Bamburgh and Lindisfarne. The house was clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. It was cold when we arrived and took some time to figure out the heating but once we did it was cosy. The log fire was nice to have too.

We arranged for a grocery delivery to be ready for when we arrived and found that the host had very generously unpacked them and put the chilled and frozen items away.

The bedrooms were comfortable and we enjoyed good nights sleep. A travel cot was made up with bedding for our baby. The bathroom was spacious with enough towels and toiletries. However we felt the shower pressure was quite weak and overall could have done with a more thorough scrub, especially the bathroom on the second floor. We didn't use the bedroom on the second floor but it was a nice space for the kids to place hide and seek in and views were lovely from up there (sunset photo below). The views were lovely from all windows, you can even see the sea from the back bedroom window. The kitchen was clean and well equipped for our needs. On the second morning we did notice some slug trails between the kitchen table and window; we cleaned it up and that night scattered some salt under the window that night and didn't see any more. It was very convenient to have use of a dishwasher and washing machine including detergents.

Highly recommend the cottage.

Barmoor retreat is a beautiful house, hard work and thought has gone into making this house a perfect holiday home, Dave and Sue are very nice, Dave checked in on us to make sure we were okay, Sue emailed my husband to make sure we were safe after she heard someone had an accident in Lowick. The house is warm and has a friendly feel. It is clean and comfortable, I would recommend This house to anyone who wants a lovely holiday in Northumberland.

My wife, grandfather, kids and I had the pleasure of staying at the Barmoor Retreat for a weeks break in Northumberland. We found house online and was swift and easy to book. Very reasonable price for a house of this standard. Spottless throughout, comfortable, homely, warm and very peaceful. Loved sitting round table at night after dinner feeling warmth from the aga and the wood burner in the living room was very relaxing. Had the best night's sleep I have had in ages in lovely double room on first floor and kids disappeared to top floor bedroom with ensuite shower and toilet which gave us all peace. Northumberland is stunning and we made most of each day looking forward to coming back to this house. You can hear a pin drop at night and the stars on a clear night were breathtaking. Sue and Dave are perfect hosts and have no doubt we will visit again in future. Thanks for a lovely holiday home for the week as we absolutely loved it.

This is a home from home, warm and cozy, lovely welcome pack on arrival was well received. Water is piping hot and plenty of it if you fancy a soak in a decent sized bath. Everything is here you could possibly want, the beds are super comfy( I would quite like to take one home) or perhaps we could just move in!

Ideal location for coast and Berwick. Take a trip to the Farne Islands while you're here.

This is a great place, to take a break, relax, sight see, chill out, go motoring, walking, cycling or golfing. It is accessible to all of Northumberland delights, and just off the A1, well equipped with all home comforts, (actually, even better), with use of a log fire, with a lovely modern kitchen with all the essential appliances.

Spacious bathroom and bedrooms were delightfully decorated. Both owners were fantastic, so friendly and helpful on our first visit to this part of Northumberland.

Nearby we enjoyed visits to Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick, Hol

Sometimes when you leave a review you KNOW that it may give you a problem when you want to go back to that property, as your review may just be the one that makes a 'searcher' book the week you are after....well,I hope it does as the owners and property ARE a delight, and we would move our week away just to make sure this property is free...yes, seriously. !

Everything about the property booked was excellent. From the porch ( for muddy shoes) to the front room with open fire, to the big kitchen...it was exactly as we had hoped for. We cannot think of anyt

If I had one wish it would be that we could have moved this cottage just a couple of miles nearer the coast. Despite looking at maps before we booked, we misjudged it and it is about 5 miles inland.

That said, it's only about 15/20mins to Bamburgh and Holy Island, so still a nice base point. A lot of the attractions feel a bit far away - Alnwick, Dunstanburgh etc - but I think that given how Northumberland is, where ever you stay there will be something that feels like it's a bit of a drive :)

That's probably the only thing I could even remotely class as a
