Tranwell Cottage is a great place to stay. The accommodation is very good, clean and comfortable, it is close enough to the lovely town of Morpeth which a 10 to 15 minute walk to the town centre. The cottage is very peaceful and very relaxing. Our hosts looked after everything we needed, even down to a welcome for our dog. Well Done. As a base for discovering the local area and amenities, it really is superb. You are 30 minutes from Newcastle, if it's shopping your after or there is the Quayside, with it's bars, theatres, and the Sage which is just across the river Tyne. The area is awash with historical sites, Whitley Bay and the sea front. A little further up the A1 is Lindisfarne Castle, which is spectacular. All these areas/sites are definitely worth a visit. As I said before Tranwell Cottage is a great place to stay, the accommodation is that good and meets the highest standards, it caters for all your needs and wants.
So wether you decide to explore North, South or West , Tranwell Cottage is a great base to start from. I will be back to this location, it meets all my needs. Thank You. Mal and Pam.
