We had a very comfortable stay in 3 Dukes Cottages over Christmas week. It was decorated beautifully for Christmas which we really appreciated. It was also located conveniently close to Newcastle to visit relatives and to the beach (Seaton Sluice and Whitley Bay) to walk the dog.

The cottage is beautiful. It has a tranquil, traditional feel to it and is in a great location, close to the coast and Northumberland yet twenty mins from Newcastle city centre. The cottage itself is very spacious with a lovely garden. We were provided with plenty fresh towels, hand wash, toilet rolls etc. Everything you could possibly need us cateRead morered for. E.g. the kitchen was well stocked with equipment, crockery, condiments even all the ingredients to make a cake! This is super helpful as you don't need to bring essentials like kitchen roll, foil, tea bags with you. The owners were on hand should we have needed them. All of this added to a stress free holiday. Thank you. Hide

: A warm cosy cottage, well sited for the key local sites of Beamish, Bamburgh Castle and Cragside, all of which are well worth a visit, as well as Hadrian's wall, in particular Housteads, Chesters and Vindolanda. The cottage is close to Newcastle making it easy to access the city by Metro from Northumberland Park. The beds were comfortable and theRead more provision of a shower room in addition to the bathroom was useful with a number of adults sharing the property. The Kitchen is well equipped, with the majority of the items I would expect to find (although a T cosy would have been useful).

Good first impression, happy with the cleanliness and very happy with the facilities. I would definitely consider another break here and recommend 3 Dukes Cottage to others.

We have stayed many times in Dukes Cottages, both 3 & 4, and we feel that they cannot be bettered. Both cottages are immaculately furnished, they are exceptionally clean, and they are a true home from home. The cottages want for nothing in terms of utensils, and home comforts. Caroline and Gordon are the most generous and helpful people that you woRead moreuld ever wish to meet, a truly lovely couple. These properties (3 and 4) cannot be recommended more highly, as they are truly outstanding. Hide
