“Dog and people friendly”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

A spacious cottage with its own contained back garden. We were greeted by Bernard (our land-lord) who seemed genuinely pleased to see us. We found wine and biscuits for us, and a packet of the latter for our little dog. There are two bedrooms. One contains a double bed and the snore-room has a single bed.
There was enough kitchen equipment for those staying in the cottage and a vacuum cleaner for use when necessary. The cottage was clean, as were the towels and bedding provided. There is plenty of places to go locally and Bernard is a mine of information. His recommended eating places proved accurate. A very reasonably priced week. I booked via Sykes Cottages.

“Filthy Cottage”
Reviewed 9 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Booked through Sykes Cottages. Black mould in fridge, bedrooms, en suite, kitchen walls. Stayed one night out of seven, obviously not been cleaned since the last review, and the cobwebs are still there. Sykes quote 'The finest hand picked cottages' err not this one.

“Disappointing accommodation”

Standard of accommodation not as expected. Bedroom was dirty with huge cobwebs and stains on the carpets. In fact we had cobwebs everywhere. Hospitality was good, but even the utensils were dirty. My dog has better towels too.

“Very happy customers!!!!”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Just returned from a great week's holidaying at Shunting Cottage. It was perfect for us and our dogs. It was comfortable, warm, clean,well equipped and had secure little patio area to allow the dogs out. It's location was great for exploring Northumberland. The area has so much to offer with castles and beaches, beautiful villages and some top rate restaurants. The owners were very helpful but not intrusive in anyway despite living in the adjacent property. They even offered to dog sit! We had a welcome gift of chocolates for us and treats for the dogs which were very gratefully received. Couldn't have asked for better. Very happy customers!!!!
