Just returned home from a wonderful stay at Drakestone Cottage. By far the best self catering trip I’ve had in the UK… the cottage has been renovated and is presented to such a high standard. It’s homely and perfectly appointed. It had everything we needed… and more. We have come home converted twitchers after watching all the lovely birds in garden! Karen provided a cot, high chair and fire guard for our 15 month old and we found the cottage very child friendly overall which meant we could relax. The welcome treats were lovely… Karen your hens lay amazing eggs! Harbottle is quiet and pretty and is a great base. The highlights of our trip were:
* Cragside – just down the road – amazing
* Bamburgh beach and castle – the views!!
* Alnwick Castle – we didn’t get to see the gardens as the weather wasn’t great but we will be back!
* Alnmouth and Warkworth were chocolate box pretty
Overall a great little holiday… shame about the weather but with so much to do and see it wasn’t a problem…
We will be back!
