Stunning location.. Family who owned the lodges were amazing and so friendly. We will definitely be back.
Quite simply the BEST holiday cottage I've ever stayed at.. Warm. Comfortable. The whole place was kitted out to a really high standard. The owners were warm and welcoming. Couldn't be happier with our experience.
Wonderful holiday property 10/10 in every way.. On arrival what struck me first were the far reaching views across the Northumberland countryside and on entrance I knew I'd chosen a fab holiday property. The lodge itself was warm and comfortable and presented to a high standard. Mrs Proctor has been in the hospitality trade for many years oozing warmth and a bubbly welcome. We do not hesitate to recommend this holiday property and can't wait to return.
Holiday was very enjoyable with plenty to see and do in the area we chose.. Accommodation was very good.
This was the perfect place to explore Northumbria.. Our hosts Mr and Mrs Proctor did everything to make us comfortable,
I highly recommend the cottage and the hosts
The owners were friendly and helpful.. Stair gates were most welcome with a 2 year old. Excellent location for touring the whole of Northumberland, especially the coast. Loads of nice places to eat at reasonable prices. Beaches were clean and parking cheap.
A lovely clean, well equipped cottage in an ideal location to tour the major sites of Northumberland.. Would recommend without hesitation.
We had a wonderful stay at Lime Tree Lodge.. The lodge was really well set up for our party of 2 adults and 3 children. It is in a lovely rural setting and well located for the attractions of Northumberland. Dianne and Arthur are perfect hosts. The welcome pack, including home made bread, wine and Easter eggs was a lovely surprise. We stayed during lambing season and Arthur took time out of his hectic schedule to show the children how to feed the orphan lambs - it was the highlight of our trip.
An excellent base for a family holiday in Northumberland.. Easy reach of the coast and beaches, plus inland to National Trust and places like the beautiful Alnwick Gardens and castle.
We had a warm welcome on arrival with a few tasty treats to get us going and help was available throughout our stay.
Accommodation is ideal with three great sized bedrooms and three bathrooms. Safe and secure play area in sight of the property and of course there’s the farm to explore along the footpaths. We were lucky to be there as lambing was taking place.
At nights you are surrounded by quiet - refreshing to hear only the sounds of nature and not of traffic.
All in all most highly recommended.
We have just spent a most wonderful week here, the accommodation is Just lovely 3 very good sized bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The living area is very spacious and comfortable and the kitchen has everything you would need. It has free WiFi and good phone reception. There is central heating which is very good as we did use it one night. It is set in the grounds of Swarland Old Hall and as there are only 2 it is quiet. The welcome pack us very nice 2 fresh loaves of bread, tea, milk, a lovely cake and bottle of wine which was very much appreciated. The area is beautiful and there is a lot to see. It is a working farm so there are animal's about but that never bothered us and the family that own and run this are very lovely people and just want you to enjoy your time there which we did
A lovely cottage in a wonderful location.. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. We would like to return if we visit the area again.
Location was perfect, weather was perfect, Lime Tree Lodge was perfect
Wonderful if you want a quiet break in the country..
We had a lovely relaxing time in this clean ,comfortable lodge .. A brilliant location for exploring or just chilling out .
Thank you .
On arrival we called at the owners home opposite and was warmly welcomed by the owner Mrs Proctor. The lodge was immaculate and beautifully furnished. There was a welcoming bottle of wine, biscuits, milk and bread. The grounds surrounding the lodge were also well kept and there was a play area for younger children with swings and slides. The views from the lodge were spectacular looking over the surrounding farmland, you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere. However there is easy access to the main A1 which will take you to many of the attractions in the area. Amongst the best holiday homes I've stayed in in the last 20 years.
Lime Tree Lodge was a delightful, clean, warm and comfortable two-storey cottage with 3 spacious bedrooms - an ideal base for our family holiday. The owner was lovely and very friendly, and we had absolutely no complaints at all - we would strongly recommend it.
We found the property to be relaxing and in a fantastic location. The holiday was also good, lots to do, we actually needed longer than a week to fit everything in. Will definately return.
