“Perfectly situated, comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 5 weeks ago for a stay in October 2018

We very much enjoyed our short break and found everything we needed in the cottage, including toys and games for our children which was an unexpected treat.

“Great locations, well equipped, but small and chilly”
Reviewed 8 November 2018 for a stay in November 2018

We enjoyed our stay, the house has a fantastic location and is very cute. However, the house took a long while (more than 24 hours) to warm up from the 15 degrees maintained temperature and with only one bathroom, 6 people was a bit of a challenge. It was good for a short break.

Thank you for the feedback sorry you felt the cold though as the boiler is ordinarily very good, relatively new and regularly serviced, that together with the gas fire and many radiators are normally very effective

“like home from home”
Reviewed 4 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

"Shy Bairns on the Corner" is conveniently located about 5 minutes by foot from the centre of the town and attractions such as Alnwick Gardens; Alnwick Castle is at the other end of the street! The town itself is convenient for the many attractions of Northumberland: the wonderful beaches, stunning castles, wild moors and the beautiful Cheviot Hills. The house is bright and airy, well laid out, clean and very comfortable, and well-equipped. And if there is some issue, the owners act immediately to sort it out, and in a friendly manner. We hope to be back!
