Patrick and Anne-Louise, stayed February 2020: Thimble Cottage is a delight; the perfect hideaway for two people. Set in the most glorious countryside, just over four miles from Alnwick, with its castle, and its gardens (created by the Countess of Northumberland), it feels both remote and yet accessible. Owner Philly has gone to extraordinary lengths to make it feel like a home from home, with a good eye for detail. From the splendid faux wood panelling in the sitting room, to the exotic Whistler-esque peacock wallpaper in the bedroom and the Farrow & Ball paintwork throughout, it is a class act. The bed is extremely comfortable with good lighting by which to read, the bathroom shower works a treat, and the kitchen is equipped with pretty much everything you could possibly need. Five stars from me and my wife. Oh, and did we mention the superabundance of powerful fortifications dotted along the Northumbrian coastline. As Arnie Schwarzenegger might have said: “We’ll be back!”
Lisa and Ian, West Yorkshire stayed 2nd January 2020: Lovely stay, very peaceful and relaxing. Highly recommend a visit to the Treehouse Restaurant at Alnwick Gardens and the shop at Newton By the Sea.
