Fresh eggs were a delight and fun to collect. It was fun herding the hens and there was lots of fantastic play equipment. We loved Budle Peep.
Our first time on the farm, but definitely not our last. We love this part of the workd and thoroughly enjoyed our few days; walking on the beaches, exploring the farm” and sipping tea and coffee (…and beer and wine!?!) Thank you for making us feel so welcome – it means a lot. Thanks for the extras too – and our son loved it here! Highlights? Low Newton to Dunstanburgh on the Beach, Craster to Howick and of course, Bamburgh – stunning (oh, and the Shoreline Café in Craster – nice cake!)
“We had a truly amazing week at Budle Falls – a welcome break from London and certainly worth the 8 hour drive!!! Thank you so much to Allison for being so warm and welcoming and giving our city kids a real taste of country life! The highlight certainly had to be bottle feeding the orphaned lambs and waking up to discover the gorgeous new born lambs. This may be what makes Budle Falls unique. My son had a fantastic time playing war games with Allison’s son and our daughter bonded with Allison’s daughter while bouncing (!) and looking after lambs. Thank you too to Allison’s children for the lovely welcome and for sharing everything. We would love to cop me back here one day and will certainly recommend it to friends! THANK YOU!!!!”
“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!”
“This is our third visit to Budle Bay Croft, having stayed in Budle Falls on two occasions previously. Budle Haugh does not disappoint, yet another amazing, relaxing location. This was our “UK” honeymoon as we have just gotten married abroad and Allison’s personal touches made us feel so welcome. Our only problem now is next year – Budle Falls or Haugh??!”
Best equipped cottage I have ever stayed in.
“We had the most fabulous time! The cottage is great – a real home-from-home with extras! Our children loved playing with Allison’s daughter and meeting the animals. Feeding the lambs was a highlight. I enjoyed the spectacle of hubby shearing a sheep and I know he enjoyed it too – not so sure about the sheep though! Thank you for a wonderful stay!”

“We have had a fabulous stay in your beautiful cottage! Too short if anything 🙁 We have managed to explore lots of the sights such as the coastal walk from Budle to Bamburgh. The boat trip to the glorious Farne Islands and the walk from Craster to Bamburgh Castle. Heading off today via Alnwick Castle. Happy days. Thanks for the lovely complimentary gifts and delicious eggs.”
Feeding the lambs was lovely and all the outside space is great.
