Peaceful Hideaway

The cottage is in a tranquil location on a farm just outside of the village, making it very quiet and relaxing. There is everything provided for a relaxing break.Walks are available from the cottage door and views are excellent.

A first class rental

We found Lumbylaw Cottage on the internet and we lucky to find it! It's an excellent place to stay. The cottage is very well equipped and maintained. There is plenty of entertainment - walking round the farm includes a good walk along an old railway; there are more and better quality books than we've found elsewhere; the views from every window ae good; we have the entertainment of watching a wide range of garden birds on the feeder outside the kitchen window while eating breakfast. The private garden is pretty. The cattle are handsome, with beautiful bulls in several of the fields, and there is a general feeling of all being well with nature. The owners are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We rent several houses every year and this is equal with the best of them. We can't wait to come back.

Quiet location, views, animals and birds. Fully equipped property, clean and well maintained.Friendly owners on site . Access to all farm fields available . Footpaths to old church and castle ruins and beyond to countryside. We will use this property as a base when we visit Northumberland again.

Family time

Excellent location, warm, comfortable, well equipped cottage. Friendly, welcoming owners. Our grandchildren enjoyed walking through the fields to the ruined castle and the 11th century church. Easy access to fabulous beaches.

Fun from beginning to end!

I can't speak highly enough of how good Garden Cottage was and how well we were looked after by Mrs Lee, we'd not mentioned that we both suffer from an allergy to highly pollenated flowers so we explained why we'd placed the beautiful vase of flowers that had adorned the cottage, outside the door. When we got back the next day Mrs Lee had transplanted the Lilies that had been by the door further up the garden, Nothing was too much trouble. The cottage, which was both spotlessly clean and wonderfully comfortable, is in a truly ideal setting overlooking miles of rolling countryside, one side of the cottage overlooks this along with fields of cattle and sheep while the other overlooks the most beautiful garden with feeders filled with birds. It is just so tranquil with the drive being half a mile from the road.The surrounding area has lovely national trust properties that are amazing with loads of beautiful walks.Would we go again? Given half the chance we'd be back tomorrow!
