    "Another wonderful stay (Our 5th) at the Cartshed! The Beagles had a great time too! Weather very windy on Sunday so didn't make it to the beach. Lunch at the Potted Lobster - Delicious and well worth a visit. Ate Saturday night at St Aidans Bistro - Very Good! We will be back in the Spring! Sad to leave.."

    McGechaen Family - Nov 2017

    "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! "

    Diane, Rion, Ella and Joannie - Nov 2017

    Gibson Family - Oct 2017

    "Another amazing stay, can't wait to come back again. Great walks with the dog Budle Bay to Bamburgh. We loved Alnwick. The Lord Crew in Bamburgh has amazing food. The Castle Inn in Seahouses also amazing and so very welcoming. As before arrived at the Cartshed and felt so at home and welcome. Thank you. "

    The Picks - Sep 2017

    "Another enjoyable stay at the Cartshed. We relax as soon as we arrive. Warkworth was worth a visit for a cake shop and the walk back was great, once we found the correct car park! A thoroughly enjoyable week."

    Mike and Pip - Sep 2017

    "Our first stay at the Old Cartshed, what a lovely well equipped place, absolutely everything thought of. A very peaceful location and a short walk to Seahouses. Looking forward to a return visit and exploring more! "

    The Stewart Family - Aug 2017

    "This was our forth stay at the Old Cartshed and as soon as we open the door we feel relaxed and ready to enjoy our holiday. Since last year the cottage has been improved by new bedroom wallpaper, outside table and chairs and new round table in the lounge. We enjoyed lovely days out visiting Alnwick, Morpeth and Berwick. Hope to be back next year! "

    Stuart, Emma, Jack, Charlie and Frostie (Westie) - Aug 2017

    "Wonderful cottage, wonderful location. Real home from home. We love Northumberland, and after 16 visits in 15 years we never tire of it! We will be back next year. Brilliant walks for the dogs. We finally managed to tire out our working Cocker Spaniel! The Old Cartshed is amazing. It was our third time here and we still find it to be amongst the best accommodation we have found for humans and doggies alike. Just perfect. Visited all our favouite places. Thanks again for a fantastic week "

    Sally & Mike + Maise & Dill, the dogs - Jul 2017

    "After 4 visits now to Northumberland and the Cartshed we never fail to leave without a smile on our faces and a spring in our steps. The cottage is still in an immaculate condition even after all this time. Like the new touches especially the wallpaper in the Master Bedroom. Hope to be back soon. "

    Diane & Dave Harper & Bentley (the dog), Sutton Coldfie - Jul 2017

    "Thank you once again for a lovely stay in your beautiful barn. We stayed six months ago & enjoyed it so much we returned with our parents & of course the dog! Beautiful area & so dog friendly which our choc lab Monty really enjoys - always a warm welcome & lots of water bowls everywhere you visit. Many dog friendly bars serving lovely food, local gins and ales. Thank you once again."

    The Squires & Monty - Jul 2017

    "The second time we have stayed at the Cartshed very good first class place to use as a base for the very good coastline. The cottage is everything you would need for a comfortable stay."

    Graham, Jackie, Sweep & Mij - Jun 2017

    "Very comfortable cottage and beds. All modern conveniences. Friendly owner next door. Lovely area; Cragside excellentday out but would alos hohjly suggest a visit & landing on the Tarne Islands. Make sure you book with Serinity, the evening trip was fantastic. The skipper kindly looked after our dog while we landed on the Inner Farne."

    The French's & Wents (&Hector) - Jun 2017

    "We recently enjoyed staying in your beautiful cottage and exploring the area. We walked a lot of the coastal path fro Cresswell to Berwick & loved the beaches and scenery. A highlight was visiting the Farne Islands & landing on Inner Farne where we saw an amazing number of birds - the Terns pecked our heads, so caps essential, as protecting their eggs, and we saw nesting Puffins, Seal & so many other birds. Absolutely amazing."

    The Allisons and Lagerbergs - Jun 2017

    "Lovely cottage, great for dogs. Area lovely easy walking to beach, shops and eating places. Wished we could have stayed longer. "
