The cottage was lovely and clean.. Very cosy and and was perfect for 2 children, 2 adults and 2 dogs. The only let down is the bathroom, where the bath is very flexible when standing in it and we tried to run a bath from the bath taps and there was no hot water running through it. There is also a bit of bare wood showing on. The left hand side of the bathroom sink. Which just made it feel slightly half finished. However, having said this, the cottage is perfectly located in longframlington and has all the essentials that you would need. I would definitely recommend to other people.

The cottage was quite close to the road and Longframlington is not that scenic a village.. Kitchen in the cottage lacked worktops to use to prepare food and was installed more for looks than function (v limited space to store food as well ) Cottage was clean, warm and comfortable) A blind on the window at the top of the stairs would be good. The hot water supply gave us no problems (contrary to previous reports ).

Really great cottage accomodation, listed accurately and I was able to live chat With Sykes Cottages to ask about the hot water issue that had been raised by previous people staying, which meant we understood how to manage ensuring we had hot water.. We did have the flush on the toilet break so water was running, in the bowl, for over 24hours. They had a plumber come and Maria our contact was great to speak to but it was the next morning after I had texted the out of hours number. My expectation was to receive an acknowledgement that the message, and problem, had been recorded. No compensation has been coming as I was told it would be by Maria. The location is great, really enjoyed the opportunity to walk from the village, the corner shop is well stocked and the butchers very good.

We did have a problem in that the kitchen had no hot water.. We rang the numbers supplied and they talked us through it, seemed to be ok for 24 hours but then went cold again. If we put the heating on, we seemed to have hot water in the kitchen but it wasn't cold enough to warrant having the heating on so we ended up boiling the kettle or filling the bowl with hot water using the shower. I noticed there were other comments about this in the guest book going back to July and assume the problem has still not been resolved. That aside, the cottage was lovely. Had everything we needed, was cosy and comfortable. Clean and tidy with a lovely master bedroom. Plus it was ideally based for all the village amenities. Would definitely recommend and use again.

Beautiful cottage in a great location for exploring the area.. Spotless on arrival and appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine! The decor is lovely and very cosy with a fantastic bedroom upstairs. Nice to have plenty of outside space at the back. Just a couple of negatives, however. The heating/hot water needs sorting (could be a problem if staying in winter) and the bath is very flimsy - feels like you are going to fall through it when using the shower (I'm not overweight!) and there is no fan in the bathroom. Another small, basic thing - could do with some more kitchen equipment - trays for oven and more than two wine glasses would be good. That said, would recommend this cottage and would return.

Absolutely fantastic.. The cottage was beautiful and already looking for somewhere in the Suffolk area in October through Sykes. Will definitely use Sykes again after this cracking experience - thank you!

Lovely cottage very well located centrally for touring around Northumberland and beyond Best nights sleep I've had away from home as extremely quiet at night and comfortable bed Easy access to local towns 15 minutes to Rothbury and Cragside both are highly recommended places to visit 30 minutes to Alnwick and Amble An hour drive to Berwick Up Tweed and Holy Island The only downside is the the back garden , it would only take a weekend to tidy it up so there is somewhere to sit having a drink in the evening .. I know this won't bother everybody but to me its a large downfall Other than that we had a lovely stay

Beautifully renovated cottage very conveniently located and ideal for dog owners as the surrounding area is so dog-friendly (apart from The Granby Inn in the village! ) The village even has a designated dog walking field which is less than 5 minutes walk from the cottage. We have already booked again for next year!

The cottage could do with a dish washer.. A the rear garden was a sun trap and had the facilities to sit outside unfortunately the state of the garden was a disappointment as it had not been looked after everything else was spot on

Great location for exploring Northumberland.. The cottage was well equipped and great for dogs! A handy box of essentials for dogs was a great touch.
