“Great venue BUT NO Wi-Fi!”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

This venue ticks neatly all the boxes.Beautifully kitted out to a very high standard. Very comfortable beds so slept very well. However, and it is a big however there is no Wi-Fi. I found that out when i arrived and tried to access my iTunes and Apps only to find there was no signal. Videophone has no 3G or 4G so very much out of contact. Suddenly you realise how much internet access forms an essential part of your life such as accessing train times and tickets, BBC weather apps to check on weather, the Cloud where i stored my research and plans, and of course FaceBook! Many of the visitors attractions advised that you check their websites for up-to-date information but that was not accessable I did mention this to the owner and he advised me that the local library did have free access, but that was very inconvenient. In this day and age with our increasing dependence on the internet not having a wi-fi was a real let down. As i m an older person and have slight mobility problems i did find getting in and out of the bath a struggle and there was no grab rail to hold onto so felt rather unsafe and unstable. Simple things i know but would make a real difference.

“Excellent cottage, with all you could need”

A lovely cottage, with everything you could need and more. Right near the High Street and with safe parking. Lawrence, the owner, was very welcoming and provided cake! Cottage had plenty of space and everything had been thought of to make our stay comfortable. Only negative in my mind was the shower - otherwise everything was perfect.

“perfect cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed for 3 nights during half term, and couldn't have asked for a better holiday cottage. The photos online do not do it justice...lovely rooms, high ceilings, beautifully and comfortably furnished, spotlessly clean, with everything you might need. Lawrence was a friendly host, answering questions, making helpful suggestions, and leaving us cake - perfect!
The location is brilliant, tucked away in a private mews, so quiet and peaceful, yet only 3 minutes walk into the centre of Alnwick, with a supermarket 5 minutes walk, and only 10 minutes to the castle (15 minutes walking with small children!!). Would highly recommend this to anyone - perfect for families, but equally lovely for couples as once the kids were in bed it was just the most lovely place to relax. We plan to go back again, as only touched the surface of all the great things to do in the area.

“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Mews Cottage was absolutely perfect, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and had everything you could want for a very relaxing holiday. We were greeted by Lawrence who made us feel very welcome and showed us around, also gave us a few good points on places to visit and eat, would recommend Lilburns! The cottage is set in a quiet off-road location and yet only 2 minutes from the centre of Alnwick with plenty of interesting shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. There is a Morrison's store just up the road for your daily essentials plus 3 other supermarkets within easy reach. The splendour of Alnwick castle is 5 mins away and well worth a visit. very relaxing holiday, we are already planning our next visit
