“Perfect base to explore Northumberland, the cottage was cosy and perfectly equipped for a few days quiet getaway. Charles & Dee were great hosts with loads of local knowledge and recommendations and were very accommodating. Love that the farm is powered by renewables and the underfloor heating was a welcome addition in February! We used Gunnerton as a base to easily explore Hadrian's Wall, Bamburgh and the North Lakes.”

Priory Cottage is a quirky, stylish and comfortable cottage with a wood burning stove and a private entrance. This luxurious five star-rated property provides the perfect place to escape to and enjoy the peace and quiet. Situated on the banks of the River Coquet, this semi-detached property is part of the historic Brinkburn Estate and was originally of the groom's accommodation and hayloft.
“The cottage is a delight from start to finish. The situation is unique alongside the river and with the abbey nearby, with walks straight from the front door of the cottage. We loved star gazing on a couple of nights and bird watching/listening just along the path. It is finished to a high spec, lovely and warm with underfloor heating and a very comfy lounge where you can kick back and relax very easily. It is very spacious. There is everything you could need in the kitchen and all really good quality and the goodies hamper was delicious. When we needed a lock sorting out someone was round really quickly. And when we needed assistance when my husband became unwell Mark was down straight away and we had support from Carol and the cleaning team as well and also from The English Heritage staff member at The Abbey. I cannot recommend this property and Mark and his team too highly”
