Norham is well located for exploring Northumberland. We were only a couple so the cottage was spacious and well equipped. The were stacks of cutlery and crockery so we didnt need to use the dishwasher much. Very cosy.

Welcome pack so good, cottage in centre of lovely village with lots of good walks around. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of room in the cupboards for our groceries, the towels/bed linen was first class and the beds comfortable. There was a good clean well maintained garden with garden furniture for our use. Excellent.
