A further 2 miles up the coastline is the traditional fishing port of Seahouses where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, depart regularly from its harbour. Here there are several charming tea rooms, quaint pubs and shops and many other amenities available including horse riding, fishing and golf on the links. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its dramatic castle, the location used for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden with The Grand Cascade, a striking waterfall feature, and a restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!

    Carol – 1 Aug 2018
    "Fantastic cottage, well equipped with lots of additions see weren’t expecting (lots of kids games, kitchen equipment, bbq-thanks to a previous guest, books, cool boxes, ice packs, outdoor games etc etc)Only very minor issue, hot water wasn’t hot but as the weather was good it didn’t cause us too much problems but if showering/bathing in downstairs bathroom when weather cold then it may not have been warm enough. Thanks for a fantastic holiday"

    "Plenty to do and cottage was very well equipped"
    Beverley – 8 Jul 2018
    "Beautiful, spacious family home. Perfect as a base for us to re visit all our favourite Northumberland sights and fabulous beaches. There is a fabulous beach just a short drive away, where we walked the dogs almost ever day. The Kitchen is so well equipped, if you felt like cooking a gourmet dinner you would find every utensil you needed. Even a Coffee maker to program for your morning Coffee! our two Border Terriers were secure in the back Garden, which has a large table and chairs for Alfreso dining. We were there in an extremely hot week, but the house was lovely and cool, and the big comfy beds very welcoming. The two living rooms were a bonus, as our teenagers could watch what they wanted on the evenings we just wanted to relax. We sat in the Garden, chilled Prosecco in hand, watching the sheep, Horses, and the stars as it got dark. A very relaxing holiday was had by all."

    "Lovely cottage, spacious, clean, warm. Would recommend."
    Sarah – 7 Apr 2018
    "Lovely stay, everything you could possibly need."
    PALMER – 17 Feb 2018
    "The cottage is lovely all you need, it has a lovely central location to all the areas attractions. Only grumble is the heating controls is set very low at 11oc most of the time. After a day out in the cold you want to come back to a warm house not wait for it to warm up. I understand it’s a large house and must cost a lot to heat but this should not be the renters problem Overall it’s a lovely house and base for a holiday."
    Charlotte – 17 Feb 2018
    "Great location and lovely house. Very peaceful area. House was very clean, lots of space for families and doggies. Everything you need for a lovely relaxing break! Will definitely be staying here again and would recommend."
    Kim – 10 Feb 2018
    "Grey Croft is in a great location for a family holiday, we were staying in the area for a family wedding at Ellingham Hall. On arrival it had a homely feel it was warm and cosy. The kitchen is well equipt for all your cooking needs, the only minus was no electric kettle. All the bedrooms were clean and the two large bedrooms on the front were a great size for a family. The two bathrooms are also a good size and were adequate for our needs. We were happy with Grey Croft and would definitely stay there again in the future."
