Property Description

"...a fine, rural location where wildlife and natural woodland are waiting to be discovered"

These eleven charming holiday cottages (MQP, MQQ, MQR, MQS, MQT, MRJ, MRK, MTA, MVK, MVL and MVM) are set in a beautiful small development of traditional farmhouse and barn conversions close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the Northumbrian Heritage Coastline. Set in some 10 acres of peaceful and tranquil surroundings, the grounds are a mix of natural woodland with wildlife in abundance, courtyards, lawns and a traditional theme of Northumbrian Heritage throughout.
Guyzance dates back to 1242 and is a small hamlet located south east of Alnwick on the River Coquet amidst picturesque open countryside, yet close to all the main visitor attractions in the county. Warkworth is only 3 miles away with its hillside castle, charming small shops, pubs and river walks, while Amble, 5 miles, is a very friendly fishing port with a bustling working harbour and a new marina. Boat trips can be taken to the nearby RSPB reserve at Coquet Island. Alnwick with its mighty medieval fortress of Alnwick Castle - one of the finest in Europe and stage set for Harry Potter and Braveheart - is set in stunning landscape.
The cottages offer fittings of a very good standard and the décor is tasteful throughout each one. Each cottage is different yet each has its own sitting-out area with a barbecue to relax in after a day exploring the beautiful unspoilt coastline and areas surrounding this skilfully designed and tasteful setting. Newcastle city centre with its fine galleries, Centre of Life, Sage Centre, theatres and regenerated quayside area is only 30 miles away. The Metro Centre is only 30 miles distant. Shops and pubs 3 miles.

Beamed living/dining room with tiled floor and farmhouse-style kitchen area. Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Shower room with toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely property- exceeded expectations! Warm, comfortable and stylish. Lots to see and do both coastal and inland. Excellent road network making everywhere accessible - we made 80 mile round trips easily and tiresly .Superp reclamation place at Ford - with friendly owners and great tearoom. Horseriding at kimmerston- friendly and swimming at Alnwick good value. Oct 2012.
  2. The property was in a lovely location surrounded by countryside. Very peaceful. Warkworth nearest town had pubs and restaurant. Alnwick close by for supermarket. Tree House restaurant at Alnwick superb. Also, Coach Inn at Lesbury. May 2012.
  3. Cottage is set in a lovely rural location, very peaceful and quiet. Need a car as the nearest shop is at least 3 miles away so make sure if you arrive in the evening you bring supplies. Cottage is well stocked although did lack a potato masher, but we bought one and left it behind for next time, also no egg cups so make sure you bring some if you like a boiled egg for breakfast cottage is modern, clean and comfortable would stay there again without hesitation. Feb 2012.
  4. Ideally located in what appears to be a remote cosy setting, but is actually on 5 minutes from the A1. This is a great base to see Northumbria. We never tend to visit the same place/area twice but I’d happily recommend it to friends and family as they have properties to cater for all group sizes. They even cater for pets but the properties are well cleaned so no sign or smell of previous visitors. Sept 2011.
  5. The property was lovely. The location was quiet and peaceful. It was situated near to all the places we wanted to visit. We would recommend it to our friends. April 2011.
  6. The location was excellent if you like being away from it all. The nearest shops are about 4 miles away but historical sighs such as castles are all all in traveling distance. The cottage had everything that was needed away from home. Feb 2011.
  7. Sunny aspect, light and airy. Large open room with comfortable furniture. Warm and cosy especially being able to pop the little electric woodburner on if it was chilly. Great having the choice of a long lazy bath big enough for two or an efficient power shower. Oct 2010.
  8. The cottage is situated on the edge of a wooded area very tranquil. Oct 2010.
  9. The cottage had a bright airy feeling in the cottage which was warm and comfortable and suited our needs admirably. Easy to get around from to explore the coastline of Northumberland. Aug 2010.
  10. Lovely light and airy open plan lounge and kitchen, good sized bedroom and a bathroom and a separate shower room - one each! The decor was lovely. Really loved the wall of windows. June 2010.
  11. Loved the spacious accommodation. Contempory, bed was most comfortable. The whole area was just what we wanted, quiet too. May 2010.
  12. Spacious, clean, quiet, and warm. May 2010.
  13. Bright and airy. Spotlessly clean. Had everything you needed to have a week away from home. Fully equipped with lots of little extras, like tea towels, dishcloths, cleaning products etc. April 2010.
  14. A very spacious cottage for two. April 2010.
  15. A very spacious cosy cottage at a prime location for visiting Northumberland. April 2010.
  16. The cottage was light, airy, beautifully fitted out with good quality kitchen equiptment, not damp and, unusually for a conversion style of property, was furnished in a modern style. It felt as if I was the first person to rent it, which was nice. The complex was quiet and out of the way, which I like. March 2010.
  17. Immaculate spacious and light. Friendly manager. March 2010.
  18. Ivy Cottage was well equipped and very nicely decorated. Feb 2010.
  19. Lovely accommodation a pleasure to stay there for the week. Dec 2009.
  20. Excellent accommodation for two and dog. Adequately furnished if somewhat minimalist. Pleasant surroundings. Sept 2009.
