Holiday home
The Old Farmhouse is a detached cottage on a working farm in a rural position between the villages of Lowick and Ford in Northumberland. With two double bedrooms (one with an ensuite), one twin and a single bedroom plus a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep seven people. The rest of the accommodation is made up of a fitted kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with an open fire. Outside the cottage is a large garden with outdoor furniture and a BBQ as well as off road parking for three cars. With its neighbouring cottage, The Old Farmhouse can sleep up to eleven people making it perfect for a family group looking to explore this beautiful area.

The attractive village of Lowick is well placed for an enjoyable holiday in Northumberland.

There were a few things in the kitchen we would have appreciated but were not there.. ie:- serving dishes, Medium sized dish for cooking a fruit crumble/cottage pie in, A toast rack, A tray, Meat platter would have been nice but not essential. Washing-up bowl, (we bought one and left it there ) And a rail or hooks in the kitchen for the towel and tea towels etc. Otherwise we found it very well equipped.

It was a fabulous house in a beautiful area and the owner gave us a very warm welcome.. It's the little touches that make for a perfect holiday and I can't thank the owner enough, and Stanley, for making it memorable.

The Old Farmhouse met all our expectations.. It is in a lovely location with beautiful views across to the Cheviots. The accommodation is spacious and very well equipped. It provides brilliant facilities for every age group. Our 20 month grandaughter slept very well here and she loved running around in the safe private garden. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and staying at The Old Farmhouse as well as the sun shining were definitely the two major factors to our holidays success!

This is the most comfortable house ever. Northumberland is not known for it's weather and to come home to the Farmhouse after a day out is so nice. The view at the front of the house is just so beautiful. The owner is such a friendly lady who could not do enough to make you comfortable.

The Old Farmhouse was stylish, smart and spacious yet had a cosy feel. The attention to detail in the house was brilliant, with lots of lovely finishing touches. It was really child-friendly and the owners were very friendly too.

The Old Farmhouse was super and beautifully equipped. As we had our grandchildren with us, the front and back gardens were completely safe. On a quiet road and overlooking a beautiful aspect, stunning views. Close to Alnwick, Holy Island and Bamburgh. Really nice, super place. Good parking. One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.

This was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in - nothing was lacking and it was exceptionally clean. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

The Old Farmhouse was amazing; tastefully decorated and everything you could want or need was there, any other random requests were granted by the attentive hosts. It was a true home from home experience, in a stunning part of the country. There was ample room for everyone, 3 generations of my family all happy and comfortable. With 2 large reception rooms there was no getting under each others feet and no 'dancing' outside the bathroom as there are 3 toilets. The bedding was luxurious and all the appliances are good quality. This is an ideal base for visiting the many attractions that Northumberland has to offer. There are lots of leaflets and guide books in the house to give you ideas, the owners have a wealth of local knowledge to share too. There are well looked after gardens front and back, with patio furniture and a BBQ if the weather is nice too. Thank you to the owners for helping to make my 50th birthday celebrations as memorable as they were.

The owners were very friendly and welcoming, they greeted us on arrival and were on hand if we needed anything during our stay. The house, decoration and furnishings are a credit to the owners who have put a lot of thought, time and no doubt money, into making the property a beautiful and welcoming space.

Lovely quiet location in beautiful landscape. Plenty to do in the area and a lovely house to relax in at the end of the day.

We can only say good things about our stay. Our hosts were excellent and very friendly and helpful. The children especially loved Stanley the cheeky black Labrador. The farmhouse was an excellent size and finished to a very high standard. We wanted for nothing during our stay. Our 3 year old Jack still keeps asking "when can we go back to holiday home?"
August 2012
A beautifully thought out and well presented cottage in a country setting on a working farm. It had everything you would need for a more than comfortable stay; in addition was the very warm welcome and friendliness of the owners. Lots of interesting places to visit from small villages to larger castles and gardens. The beaches are stunning and not crowded. People in general were very friendly. The owners of the farm are always happy to help out and tell you of good places to eat and visit.

We were given a warm welcome and advised to ask for anything we needed, be it things or information. Our hosts then respected our privacy. They were friendly and helpful and very pleasant in their manner. The house was terrific - we had everything we needed. I would love to go back.

This was a fantastic holiday. The Old Farmhouse was beautiful in a beautiful location. The landlord and landlady were charming and interested in giving us a wonderful time. We loved the swallows who shared the farm with us and we loved the trips around the farm with the farmer. The accommodation was impeccable in every respect. The Northumbrian coast and countryside were glorious. This was a fabulous holiday - we'd love to go back.

The Farmhouse had everything needed. It was like home from home. The owners were on hand and visited most days to make sure that we had everything we needed. It was a perfect base for Northumberland. We even managed a day in Scotland.
