"Keeper's Cottage is stunningly situated with marvelous views, the cottage itself is delightful and fabulously equipped. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated with many lovely ornaments, my personal favourite was the "Mouseman" dining table and chairs. The area is great, with Alnwick being close for supermarkets. A wonderful stay but too short! Thank you." - Feb 2012
