We loved the country setting (yet only a few minutes from the A1), the large bedrooms, the fully equipped spacious kitchen with large dining table, the large bathroom with walk in shower and bath, breakfast on the roof terrace (a real sun trap), relaxing in the hot tub, and the enclosed garden (for our dog). Belford is a friendly little town with all the local amenities within easy walking distance of the cottage, yet only a short drive from the lovely beach at Bamburgh and the big town amenities of Alnwick. We were pleasantly surprised at how many dog-friendly pubs and shops there were in the area generally - so it was great to all get out together of an evening. Despite the Berwick being a pet-friendly cottage, and our border terrier Bobbi loved it, there was absolutely no sign of any previous tenants being of the 4-legged variety, as the owner Colin keeps it equipped and maintained to a high standard. Thoroughly enjoyed our week there.
