Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very friendly Farm environment with a great welcome. Lovely views and really convenient for Alnwick, the A1 and other routes for exploring further afield. April 2012.
  2. Lovely quiet relaxing location, but near enough to Alnwick for amenities. Oct 2011.
  3. Dipper cottage is a lovely little property on a working farm near Alnwick - our 15 month old son loved being able to watch horses from the cottage window! The location is great for anyone wanting to visit Alnwick and most of the interesting sites of Northumberland coast are a short drive away. The chocolate cake the owner’s left in the kitchen was a lovely touch! May 2011.
  4. Perfect for us, ideal for coast or country, family very welcoming but not intrusive - there if you needed them. Cottage was great, lovely for the three dogs and the chocolate cake on arrival was superb. May 2011.
  5. Lovely cottage and the owners couldn’t do enough during our stay and the chocolate cake was delicious. April 2011.
  6. We did actually stay at one of the other cottages on the farm - Cheviot Cottage, which was just gorgeous. The views were stunning, the garden was large and perfect for our large dog. She especially loved seeing the horses in the paddock every morning! The owners are so helpful and really friendly. The chocolate cake really was delicious! The location is great for exploring the North East. I will definitely be returning! March 2011.
  7. Property was close to main house and adjoined cottage occupied by family member, family always available for help or advice - but I’m a completely unobtrusive way. Loved coal fire. Oct 2010.
