    "We have been to Northumberland many times with our dogs but this is our first stay at the Cartshed. We found the cottage comfortable, cosy and perfect for the dogs. We've been lucky with the weather and have enjoyed beach walks everyday - here to Bamburgh with lunch on the courtyard at the Copper Kettle, Beadnell to Newton by the Sea with lunch at the Ship Inn, busy every lunchtime! Embleton to Craster, Boulmer to Alnmouth, Holy Island and a drizzly afternoon at Seahouses with the most amazing rainbow over the Farne Islands followed by a few drinks and tea at the dog friendly Bamburgh Castle Inn, PERFECT! The dogs have loved it! "
