“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!””

“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!”

“Great cottage in a wonderful location. Thank you Allison for al the extra touches which made it really special. Our daughter loved all the toys, especially the kitchen and ice cream parlour in the wendy house (not forgetting the tractor!).”

“We have had the most amazing 14 days here. The weather was unbelievable, but we would have loved it even in bad weather. Thank you so much Allison for making our holiday the best ever – thanks especially for my husband’s birthday tea and for sharing his party! My daughter would like to say thank you to Allison’s daughter for being her “big sister” and teaching her bouncing tricks on the trampoline. Some places we enjoyed (bearing in mind we were looking for attractions suitable for a lively 4 year old) included Alnwick Gardens – fantastic lunch in the Treehouse restaurant and then lots of fun in the gardens,; Barter Books – amazing bookshop and café in the old railway station (a model train runs around above your head);  Sunnyhills Farm Shop – nice child friendly café with tractors and climbing frame,a nd great takeaway food in the shop; Heatherslaw light railway; fish and chips in Seahouses – pinnacles was delicious; Ocean Leisure Club is greta for swimming and has nice café afterwards; but of course, given the amazing weather we harm we spent most of our time on the beach. We tried a few but our favourite was Bamburgh in front of the castle.”

“A fantastic warm welcome from Allison and a great holiday with friends for our girls to play with. Gorgeous cottage with lots of attention to detail. We’ve loved our time visiting Lindisfarne, Bamburgh beach, Craster, Dunstanburgh Castle and the Farnes. Having never been before and only living a couple of hours away, we’ve decided we’ll definitely be back. Thank you Allison and family for making us feel so at home”

“Budle Haugh is just perfect. Idyllic setting and beautiful grounds and walks to explore and the bonus of the animals to hand (fresh eggs!). The cottage ticks every box. Its home form home and has everything you could ever need with the added extra of a host who has considered everything that you may have forgotten!! As a couple with a busy toddler it has been heaven – an enclosed garden, complete with a collection of toys, and a quiet and tranquil setting – perfect!  Thank you Allison for your attention throughout.” Steve and family – June 2013.
”A fantastic, idyllic spot to explore Northumberland!  Budle Haugh has been fabulous: friendly, cosy and Allison and family are great hosts.  Thank you for the warm welcome, toys, films and friends to play with! We are sure we’ll be back…”

“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.”
