Our children (4 adults plus partners plus 1 dog and our 18 month old grandson joined us for the first weekend, not all in begs of corse, but I was able to provide a chilli supper for 14 with ease. Great to have 3 bathrooms, high chair and travel cot. Our cocker spaniel Alfie has had a great time too. The house is spotless, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We visited Bamburgh, Craster, High Newton, lots of lovely walks on the beaches. Weather was kind to us with only a few spots of rain. Our 1st time in Northumberland and we loved it.
