I am grateful for the time here, came to avoid the cold at home & the weather is good, accommodation is perfect for me and the warmth of friendship of Pat & Geoff so much more that others have time for. …………. It’s hard to leave after so much I have experienced … Richard

What a lovely visit ………. Pat & Geoff are the perfect hosts- nothing is too much bother & their knowledge of the area is second to none. They seem to have thought of everything & that really contributed to making this a perfect visit … Carol

We have stayed in a lot of self-catering cottages. This has been the best. A real ‘home from home’. The perfect base to explore the beautiful area. We will certainly come back, Many Thanks to Pat & Geoff…  John

Thankyou so much for letting us stay at Clamshell Cottage – it is a beautiful cottage with everything that you could need or want. Wished we could stay longer but that is not to be this time.

We were thrilled with Clam Shell cottage- it was a ‘home from home’. Pat & Geoff were perfect hosts & we were amazed at all the facilities provided – especially the children’s facilities. We will definitely be back. This was the perfect place for a break after my recent operation – so relaxing. A great base to see the sights of Northumberland. The best holiday cottage I’ve been to J
