“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!”
“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.”
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!)
“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!””
We really enjoyed playing Pooh sticks over the bridge at the cottage and exploring the grounds and paths-and seeing deer close up!
“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 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 were immediately impressed by this wonderful cottage and it’s lovely surroundings. The little details such as the age appropriate toys for our son; the tour of the grounds and introduction to the animals are what made this holiday a cut above anywhere else we’ve stayed. Our lad particularly loved feeding the ducks and pigs. Our favourite places were Alnwick Gardens (don’t forget a change of clothes for the kids!); Barter Books – my personal favourite – I could have stayed all day; Low Newton beach – enjoyed a nice drink in The Ship Inn after; Our son loved riding the train at Ford and Etal. All in all a fantastic holiday and we shall definitely return one day! Thank you.”
Thank you Allison and family for making us so welcome on your wonderful farm and holiday cottage. Budle Falls is delightful, attention to detail is superb and thoughtful extras are much appreciated. We are so pleased we chose to come here for our honeymoon, it’s been everything we could have wished for. So relaxing around the cottage and farm together with the beauty of the gorgeous coastline on the doorstep – this combination will have us returning again (and again!). We will be sad to leave – as will our puppy who has made quite good friends with all the animals – the pet lambs have got quite used to her!
Highlights – casual walk to Bamburgh; Ross Sands (WOW!); relaxing and BBQing in Budle Falls’ garden; watching the ducks paddle in the waterfall (so funny!); Allison’s son’s tour of the farm; fresh eggs (yum!). Lowlights – NONE! See you soon and thanks again 🙂
This cottage is great, and we have appreciated its serenity away from stressed revising teenage daughters.
