“Peaceful and quiet”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Excellent little cottage with a friendly welcome when we arrived. The cottage was immaculate and had everything you needed. It is in a quiet and peaceful area but not too far from Berwick, Bamburgh or Holy Island for days out.

Thank you for leaving a review. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your holiday. We have the Holy Island crossing times in Linnet, ready for guests to plan day trips. The Farne Islands are another wonderful day out and fish & chips at Seahouses is not to be missed!
I very much hope to welcome you back again to Linnet Cottage. Thank you very much for staying with us.
Best wishes

“Lovely retreat ”

Myself my husband and our 3 month old baby stayed here on the bank holiday weekend.
What a lovely little cottage. Has everything u need, plus more for baby when requested. Unfortunately the weather was shocking but still didn't stop us from getting out. Enjoyed berwick market and lunch at the plough and loved walking around farm with my son. My only downside is on our second night there was an awful lot of noise coming from our neighbours which stopped me from sleeping. I must add though that the bed is to die for and my 1st night I was asleep in seconds. Thanks for a lovely stay and for the amazing eggs!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad to hear you had a great holiday. Alnwick Gardens and Castle are only 45 minutes from Linnet. A great day out which suits all Northumbrian weather conditions! I am sorry to hear your second night sleep was interrupted. I fully realise with a little baby how precious a good nights sleep is. I will look into preventing the situation from occurring again.
I hope we can welcome you back to Linnet Cottage again.
Best wishes,
Laura Smales

“Lovely cottage in a lovely spot,peaceful and cosy yet near amenities”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I was very cosy and comfortable at Linnet Cottage. A peaceful haven at the end of my days walking St Cuthberts Way. Really comfy bed and the eggs and flowers were very welcoming. A lovely quiet spot but convenient for Berwick. Well equipped with lovely fittings and furnishings. Happy memories.

“A beautiful oasis”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This cottage is all one could wish for. A blend of the new and the old.
Cottage design features retained as they should be - high skirting boards and lovely old doors. Laura is absolutely charming and was extremely welcoming.
The rooms are decorated tastefully and the quality of the fixtures and fittings was superb.
Loved the fabulous shower, the quality cutlery and the excellent "feel" of the place.
The bed was like sleeping on a cloud.
Couldn't hear a sound in the evening. This is out of the way (as we like it) but only 10 minutes in the car to civilisation! Would recommend most highly.

“Anne & William - 6-8th Feb 2015”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have just returned from a weekend away at the lovely Linnet Cottage. We cannot speak highly enough of the accommodation and the lovely Laura who gave us such a lovely welcome.
The cottage is perfcet for 2 and I just loved the decor in the bedroom and the bed itself was so comfortable it was amazing.
Well equipped, very very clean, superb views and a great place to get away from it all.Laura even left eggs, milk and fresh flowers on the table for us. Such a lovely touch. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to friends and family.
If you are down this area anytime please give Linnet Cottage a try.
