Past Customer,

This property is the best we have stopped in in this country everything and I mean everything has been thought of for a wonderful stay including the best welcome pack we have ever seen the host was very friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to return after a day out to the cosy feel of the cottage with beautiful fixtures and fittings

Mr stephen b,

We have just returned from Monkey Puzzle Retreat in Belford. We have never been to a holiday let like it. It was more like a home than a holiday let. There was everything you could imagine in the kitchen and the welcome pack was amazing. Charlie the owner met us with the keys and told us the best places to go and eat. Everything was of a very high standard and the attention to detail fantastic. We can highly recommend this cottage. Perfect place to stay for a relaxed and chilled holiday. A real home from home
