Reviewed 19 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a great week at Wagtail Cottage. The location is excellent - only being a ten minutes drive from Berrick town centre. Lots of fantastic walks and stunning countryside to see. We particualarly enjoyed the nearby honey farm and Paxton House.

The house itself was spacious and very comfortable with fantastic facilities. The garden was great and completely closed in which stopped the kids from adventuring onto the farm on their own! We also made use of the kids play area on site which was a great way to tire them out before bed!

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a fantastic base to explore Northumbria. We would love to go back again!

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review, it is wonderful to hear you all enjoyed your holiday. Our little call duck hatched six ducklings this morning so we might have lots of ducks next time you visit! All the very best, Laura (Thornton Farm Cottages)

About the neighbourhood
Thornton Farm is set in peaceful North Northumberland countryside. We have 51 species of birdlife and guests are able to walk around the farm enjoying the fresh air and open views.

North Northumberland is often described as Devon 50 years ago! The roads are quiet, you can relax without the crowds and catch the view to the Cheviots stretching to Berwickshire.

Norham Village is 10 minutes by car and offers local shops, such as the most amazing bakers and a good pub. Berwick has a selection of good restaurants, a swimming pool, play parks and interesting shops.

Skylark Cottage is a short drive from the Coastal Path walk. The cottage makes a great base for walkers exploring the Scottish Borders, the Cheviots and Lindisfarne.
Getting around
Whereas a car is highly recommended around North Northumberland, we realise this is not always the desirable option.

Berwick Railway Station is 6 miles from Thornton. A taxi is easily found here and the price is usually £10 to Thornton.

Perrymans and Glen Valley Tours run a twice daily bus service to Berwick and Wooler from our local bus stop, Shoresdean.
