We found that The Shieling was a great place to stay. We have recently returned from a one week visit to Northumberland with some friends and found that this holiday cottage was well suited to visits to places in both north and south of the county. The place was well appointed and had everything we needed. Plenty of local information is available in the cottage. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage as a centre for your holiday.

Many thanks for your kind comments. It was lovely to meet you all and hear you had enjoyed your (as you phrased it) ABC holiday-
"Another Beautiful Castle in Northumberland." Also nice to hear that you appreciated the peacefulness around the cottage..
Incidentally, I did not find out which bird it was you were not able to name. Regards, Carole Ann.

“Wonderfully roomy accommodation, light and airey.”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Shieling was extremely comfortable, very well equipped with everything you needed for a very enjoyable stay. Instructions were available for all the appliances which was very helpful. The view from the window looked towards Warkworth and on to the sea and Coquet Island. On a couple of occasions we saw a steam train chugging its way north while we were sitting in the conservatory, far enough away we couldn't hear it, but it was a wonderful sight.
There is so much to see and do and Carole Ann made some very helpful suggestions and several books and leaflets were in the chalet to be studied to 'make plans'. Week went by far too quickly. The dawn chorus was really worth a listen!
