What a lovely little cottage for us and our two dogs to explore beautiful Northumberland. Everything was there that we needed and we felt very much at home. Reviewers on Sykes Cottages who we booked with have mentioned there's no washing machine but we knew that when booking as it wasn't listed in the amenities so this really isn't an issue for us. Majority of the cottages we've stayed in haven't had washing machines. The WiFi was excellent and fast and good mobile coverage too. The double bed was really comfy and the cottage was warm and cosy, too warm in fact we had to turn the heaters down! Basics to make a drink where provided for when we arrived and the heating was on which was a nice touch as it was a cold February. The owners provided throws in the living room to get cosy on the couch which I really appreciate as it's what I do at home. We didn't try lighting the open fire as didn't really need it but I'm sure it's lovely when it's on and there was a starter pack provided. Good size very well maintained garden for the dogs to run up of a morning and last thing at night. Garden furniture also provided on a patio area, would be lovely in the summer. Dark skies at night is something really special and the skies were stunning. Cottage is situated to local supermarket in Belford which is a co-op. It could easily be walked to if you fancied not driving. There's also a chippy and some pubs in the village although we ate out in Berwick and Alnwick. We really would love to come again to this well presented cottage. Also got an email from owner explaining the WiFi password and how to access property from the back which was good to know.
