‘Just returned from another relaxing week stay in this beautiful cottage. Sarah (owner) 1, makes you feel so welcome. Beautiful scenery, so peaceful and very little traffic. Central to many locations in the area I never want to leave when I stay at this well equipped, comfortable cottage. Can't wait to go back’

‘My family and I stayed for four nights at Townfoot Cottage and loved every minute of it! The cottage is very well equipped and very cosy, with a lovely wood burner to take away the evening chill, very comfortable beds too. Sarah was very welcoming and helpful. The pub in the village is great, and the landlord very welcoming - as was everyone else in the village! Hoping to visit again soon’

‘The cottage has everything and the owner is extremely helpful. The week we stayed was classic British summer weather - sunshine and showers - but we still had a great time. Cottage has central heating and a wood-burning stove if the weather is cold. Small garden and a barbecue if the weather is good. Elsdon is very small (but quiet and pretty) so you need to drive if you want to buy anything or eat out. Nearest pubs/cafes/shop is in Otterburn which is about 10 minutes' drive away. Great location for exploring Northumberland and Durham - maximum 1.5 hours drive to most tourist destinations or walking areas. Local walks too if you want to have a lazy day.’

‘Townfoot Cottage provides a wonderful escape from the city. The living space is cosy and welcoming, but also has a bright and uncluttered feel. Everything you might need is to hand but there is also room to settle in. We were traveling with an infant and we appreciated that there is ample space for extra items such as a travel cot, car seat and pushchair. The beds upstairs had lovely plush duvets and provided a delightful night’s sleep. During our stay we took advantage of the location and explored Elsdon's Motte and Bailey and St Cuthbert’s Church. Later we took a scenic walk to Darden Lough. We also enjoyed just staying in the cottage, relishing the peace and quiet. The cottage owner lives next door and is readily available but we noticed that they walk to and from the main house using an alternate gate, so as not to disturb us. These sorts of thoughtful gestures helped make our stay perfect.’

‘Never been to Northumberland before - lovely lovely place. Cottage was lovely and the owners very pleasant, it was ideally suited to our need for somewhere central to the area but also peaceful but not miles from amenities. Avid National Trust members so was fantastic, visitors with us from Australia so we were able to show them the UK at its best, although the weather could have been kinder.’

‘Having stayed at Townfoot Cottage on several occasions, our opinion is still the same - an excellent property very comfotable and the owner is always on hand if needed and very helpful. As already indicated we feel you should make it clear in your future catalogues that entry to property is from 4pm on day of arrival not 3pm - this did not howe ver detract from our enjoyment of the week’

‘We stayed at Townfoot Cottage for a week last fall and were very favourably impressed. The cottage is well-equipped for any weather: There’s an effective central heating and hot water system and a marvellous wood-burning stove in the sitting room that we used in the cooler evenings. There are also board games, Freeview TV, DVD player with a selection of DVDs, and a small library of novels. We were blessed with a warm sunny week and got in some lovely hill walks in the area. There’s a little-known local walk up to Darden Lough that’s well worth the effort with panoramic views from the lake at the top of the hill. All in all we had a fantastic stay at the cottage. It was perfect for us and we will be back again.’

‘Newly baked scones, homemade jam and tea things are laid ready on the table to welcome guests. The cottage is very well appointed and the decor is excellent but not overstated. There is a good shop in Otterburn, only 2 miles away, where you can get newspapers and all basic food requirements. About 10 miles away there is an excellent Farm Shop at Wallington Hall. Elsdon is a good centre from which to visit the whole of Northumberland and the border towns in Scotland, but for those more active visitors there are good walks nearby. Newcastle with all its amenities is only a 30 minute drive away. This is a really lovely place to stay; if I must find something not quite perfect it is the lack of a walk-in shower, but that's just my personal preference.’
