“What a beautiful cottage with great attention to detail. It had everything we needed and we felt really at home immediately. Great location, quiet and truly relaxing. After brisk winter walks with the dogs it was wonderful sitting in front of the log burner in the evenings – very snug and cosy! Allison is a prefect host and goes “the extra mile” to make your stay perfect. Thank you Allison for your help and kindness. We hope to come again next year.”
Loved feeding the animals and collecting fresh eggs each morning. 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 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!”
9 out of 10-would have been a 10 if weather better!! Cottage was perfect! We had a fantastic time at Budle Falls, it is a beautiful place. The cottage had everything to make our holiday relaxing and enjoyable. We loved exploring the beautiful grounds and paths around the cottage and our little boy loved the chickens and sheep!
“Our second visit and it was just as fantastic as we remembered first time! We were greeted by the ever so friendly and polite owner’s 10 year old son ho showed us around to see what had changed since our last visit and introduced our children to his sister and other children, which meant we could enjoy a beer in sunshine in the garden while the children played – a perfect start! A perfect sunny day at Seahosues, picnic on the beach, visit to Bamburgh Castle, “daddy” successfully survived the triathlon despite the chilly sea, and of course we loved walking around the farm and seeing “Annabel” the sheep again! Thank you for another wonderful weekend, in the words of Arnie, “we’ll be back!””
“First of all we would like to thank Allison’s daughter (7) for showing us around the grounds and showing us her amazing bike riding skills – what a delight she is. Feeding the pigs was a great adventure as was collecting the eggs and stroking the sheep. Pooh sticks was great fun for us – not so sure about the ducks! We’ve had a great stay in your gorgeous cottage; your hospitality and welcome was wonderful and much appreciated. W will return – it’s been a joy.”
“A wonderful cottage – the more you look, the more you find. We’ve had a fabulous time here, both “home” and throughout Northumberland. The children loved the toys and all the outside space. Halloween party invite was a thoughtful touch by Allison, my appreciated by the little ones! We walked to Bamburgh a couple of times, catching the bus back; day at Alnwick Castle and it’s gardens; saw plenty of seals at the Farne Islands and had a fantastic day at Cragside an Amazing National Trust house and estate. Many a memory has been had…”
“We have all had a wonderful week at Budle Falls and will remember it fondly for a very long time. Allison and her family have been very welcoming, kind and helpful. Their warm-heartedness made our lovely holiday even better and we are truly grateful to them. Budle Falls is a delightful cottage and proved a perfect home-from-home for us while we explored this beautiful corner of Northumberland. We loved exploring the farm and helping out with the animals. Our son had a wonderful time playing with Allison’s and the other guest’s children. There were many highlights for us but above all we loved the animals and spending time on the farm with Allison and family and learning all about them. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.” Richard and family, June 2015.
“We had an absolutely fantastic time in Budle Falls. It is our fist time in Northumberland and we loved it so much we have booked to come back in the summer! The farm and cottage is fantastic for kids, dogs and adults alike.” Julie and family, October 2014
“The four of us; me, hubby and two children Sam aged 8 and Sophie aged 4, have just returned from a short break at Budle Falls. The facilities and attention paid to the children staying in this property are second to none. The secured gardens, play facilities, lamb, hen, pig and pony feeding all provided such a lovely opportunity and experience for them both and they loved it. We were aware that Budle Falls was surrounded by a vast amount of land but hadn’t appreciated or expected for that matter the effort and time that was to be afforded to us by Allison and her family. This is a huge selling point for this property and takes you by surprise when you get there. We have stayed in a number of Coastal Retreat properties over the years and have always loved the experience, however, this property is definitely the jewel in the crown where young children are concerned. If you had a 6 star duckling rating then this property should get it. The sooner they complete the second cottage the better.”
