Inside a large open-plan kitchen and lounge area gives access to a private garden ideal for an al-fresco breakfast or an evening aperitif. Lowick lies within a few miles of the dramatic Northumberland Coast and is an ideal spot from which to explore this richly historic region. The village is often referred to as the gateway to the Cheviots a large expanse of beautiful rolling hills stretching across the EnglishScottish border. Horse riders cyclists and ramblers will love the numerous footpaths and bridleways which run through the picturesque scenery. Nearby Berwick-upon-Tweed is the most northerly town in England and offers a bustling shopping experience as well as many historic attractions. Also nearby is the picturesque town of Alnwick with its cobbled walkways and world famous castle. Other ‘must-sees’ are the picture postcard village of Bamburgh which is almost dwarfed by its own hilltop castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne which is accessed by a tidal causeway. From the coastal village of Seahouses bird lovers can take a boat trip in season to the Farne Islands to see the famous puffin colonies.

    Comfort and Equipment






    Value for money



    out of 10

    We really enjoyed our break here but were disappointed that there was no welcome pack and no basic essentials such as salt and pepper. Whilst understanding that Covid secure guidelines have altered many things, there is not consistency among holiday cottage owners. A friend of mine also booked a holiday in another area of England and arrived to a wonderful welcome pack, cushions on the sofas, games and books. There were none of these things at our cottage. I fail to see the logic in taking away cushions but then leaving the cushioned upholstery on sofas and arm chairs. Also, we know that the virus is very short lived on paper and card, so why take away the books and games?

    Had a lovely family weekend 6adults 2 dogs and a baby all well catered for safe and happy. Plenty of room for everyone with quiet spaces if you needed them. Everyone had a great time thanks

    Lovely cottage, floors upstairs are very noisy to walk over - especially for the bedroom on the ground floor! Enjoyed our stay during Storm Ciara!

    Excellent cottage booked last minute for a weekend. Very spacious, beautiful furnishings and lovely and warm once the underfloor heating kicked in.



    out of 10

    Great venue and decent value for money. Clean ( a few cobwebs in difficult to reach places ). Nice local shop and pub (which does food and breakfast) but miles away from a larger store. Due to the nature of the main open plan living/kitchen room size, it took ages to get warm. Logs supplied only lasted the best part of 1 night. UNderfloor eating never got that warm at all. It would work out expensive to keep the fire going most evenings. Saying all the above, this is a venue I would strongly recommend and wish to book again.

    We enjoyed our stay at this cottage, despite the rain! The quality of the fixtures and fittings is high although, as some of the other reviews have indicated, there are elements which would benefit from some attention. In particular the en-suite in the main bedroom - the shower needs a deep clean and the paint is flaking off part of the ceiling and one of the spotlights is loose. The Welcome Pack was good and always gets the holiday off to a good start, albeit we could not get ours until the Sunday as the local shop was closed (but a note put through our door to explain why, which was fine). We would not visit again but only because one of the 2 pubs was not dog friendly and the other, whilst the food was lovely, was very quiet and lacked a bit of atmosphere.

    Nice location within easy traveling to Holy island and all coastal areas... great pub over the road... white swan... good food and beer.., and dog friendly... very civilised..

    Very nice comfortable cottage. Well equipped. Had some trouble with the hob and WiFi (wrong login in the book) but other wise no problems. There is no phone signal in the village for mobiles. The location is great for lots of sightseeing with lots to do and see with plenty of literature in the cottage. Would make a return visit to this cottage.

    A great cottage well equipped and within reach of some amazing locations.

    A smashing cottage in a nice part of the country.



    out of 10

    On the whole, the cottage was very nice but there were several issues that lowered our opinion: The grill pan in the oven had not been cleaned and there were tea stains down the washing machine. The grass in the garden was very long - clearly hadn't been cut for some time which made it an unpleasant place to sit out in. The recycling and rubbish bins were completely full on arrival - these should have been taken to the tip or recycling centre. The upstairs floor creaks a lot and very loudly.
