We opened the door of Drakestone Cottage to our first customers on 14th April 2017, six months ago! This was to a family of three and their dog for the Easter weekend. Since then we have taken 50 bookings and welcomed many guests from all over England and Scotland to our VisitEngland graded 4* cottage in the Northumberland National Park.
Our guests have ranged from friends or couples looking to ‘get away’, to families or couples looking for a central base to explore all that Northumberland has to offer. Many visit the heritage coast and its castles, Kielder forest and Hadrian’s Wall Country. We regularly sleep 2 or 3 guests but can accommodate up to 4 in two bedrooms. We welcome 1 or 2 well behaved dogs too.
We have had some great feedback from customers who have stayed with us and many have said they would stay with us again in the future. Some guests have already booked their repeat visit and this weekend’s guests stayed with us earlier in the year!
We are in the final stages of purchasing a property in Hadrian’s Wall Country so keep an eye on our web and Facebook pages for further information.
