“We’ll be booking again, thank you so much. Please say a big thank you to Allison for looking after us so well.”
“Big thank you to Allison and family for making our first trip to Northumberland very memorable. From the moment we arrived here at Budle Falls, we felt right at home. The farm was filled with jam packed fun and adventure for the kids, collecting eggs was the highlight of our daughter’s morning. From visits to Holy Island, to beautiful beaches like Ross Sands and Bamburgh – there was something truly amazing around every corner. An absolute must if you have kids is a trip to the Heatherslaw Railway at Ford and Etal. We were sad to leave but couldn’t have asked for a better stay, a great trip before going back to school.. And this is to say nothing of our visit to Holy Island, the Farne islands, Dunstanburgh, Low Newton, Alnwick Castle, Barter Books, Berwick, not to mention every ice cream vendor on the East Coast. All this is a week thanks to the never ending fine suggestions of Allison’s entire family! Thank you all for a very memorable trip and memories we will keep forever. P.S. – Moby will also miss his morning romp with Allison’s dogs Bobby and Hamish!”
“Like so many others, our highlight has been feeding the lambs. We love the pigs too but they are not quite so cuddly!. We only wish we had longer. Thank you Allison and the team for all the finishing touches and hospitality.”
“Had a fantastic week at Budle Falls. Allison had laid on lots of special touches to make us feel at home. The kids loved playing with the toys. The farm is fantastic and the kids loved exploring, and feeding the animals. So much to do here that it was hard to encourage the kids away! We did manage trips to Seahouses soft play/ crazy golf. Very windswept trip to beach. Barter Books is well worth a trip. The Ocean Club is fantastic. Alnwick Castle was good – we learnt to fly broomsticks and dressed as princes and knights – well worth a trip. Billy Shiels 90 minute boat trip around Farne Islands to see grey seals is great. We have had a superb week. Wellies a must. Hopefully see you next year!”
The cottage was everything and more than we expected – beautifully furnished, fresh flowers, nice bottle of wine, every cooking utensil you ever needed, great outdoor areas with toys, books and games to keep our child happy and occupied.
“Another fun-filled, adventure packed week at Budle Falls! Once again we loved feeding and cuddling the lambs and especially naming “Minty”! Thanks to Allison and her family for looking after us so well, for all the gifts, especially the chocolate lambs. Fabulous campfire singing and marshmallows – yum! What a wonderful holiday – looking forward to our next visit!” Susan and family, April 2015
We really enjoyed playing Pooh sticks over the bridge at the cottage and exploring the grounds and paths-and seeing deer close up!
“What a fantastic week in the loveliest, most stylish cottage we have ever stayed in! A big huge thank you to Allison and her family for such a warm welcome. The farm and grounds are amazing and our son has absolutely loved feeding the animals and collecting eggs each morning. Leaving the last word to our son, age 5 – “when can we come back”.” Iain and family, June 2014
“Fab toys for both girls and we were made to feel very welcome. Think we will have to get more dressing up clothes at home! Feeding the lambs was lovely and all the outside space is great. The wood burner got used quite a bit – very toasty :-)”
“We have really enjoyed staying in your lovely cottage which has been very comfortable and has met all our needs. We really loved the beach at Ross because it is so unspoilt and the sand is lovely, plus the beach is quiet. We also liked the beaches at Newton by the Sea and Bamburgh. Alnwick Gardens is fantastic for the kiddies – take along their swimming costumes and towels! Bamburgh Castle is very beautiful and has an interesting aviation museum there as well. If you can find out when the lifeboat at Seahouses has a practice launch (usually early evening) and watch it while you have some fish and chips! The fish and chips at The Bunker are lovely. The Swallow Fish Shop is a good place to buy some fresh fish to cook. The veg in Seahouses sells good quality produce. Trotters bakery is also good for tasty bread and cakes. Carters butchers in Bamburgh sell lovely bangers!”
