A wonderful, homely cottage with amazing views across to the Northumberland coast. The welcome basket of essentials was a thoughtful touch and much appreciated. The cottage was immaculate and incredibly comfortable, we slept really well all week. Derek and Trish were lovely hosts and we would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family.
Everything you need, great cottage with lovely people and views with the sea in the distance. All the equipment you need for self catering. Did a lot of driving but loads to see including Cragside which is close by. Also Alnwick castle and gardens, get a joint ticket for both its cheaper. The places to drive and see are Bamburgh castle and Seahouses for great fish and chips. Then its Hadrians wall took us 2 days but well worth the effort
This was our second stay in Tawny Nook. It feels like coming home. Everything is just perfect. There is lots to do in the surrounding area whatever the weather. Can't wait to go back!
This is our third visit to this idyllic location. The cottage is very well equipped, and meticulously maintained by the owners. However it is the location that is the star here - the peace and quiet is amazing, and being so far from any light pollution gives amazing star gazing opportunities. You could spend a week here just enjoying the wildlife - the owners actively encourage nesting birds for instance. That said however, you can be in the national park in under half an hour. Alnwick and Morpeth are even nearer, along with Rothbury. This year we ventured further afield to both Berwick and Beamish - both take about an hour to travel to. We won't consider anywhere else for our fortnight's holiday next year - it's like a 'home from home' due to the comfort and the welcome.

Just had a easter break. Not the best weather but as the location and cottage was perfect we could not off asked for more. Great location and everything near enough. Children enjoyed castles and beach. Owners lovely and helpful if needed. Will definitely go back.
