    Absolutely loved our stay at Faws House. Stunning property with high quality furnishings and perfect accommodation for our family. We could have stayed happily forever!

    I have plenty of experience of staying in self catering houses over the years and have given good reviews to most. Faws House stands out as being the best I’ve ever booked. As my dogs come on holiday with me I always search for houses with enclosed gardens and most usually that still means that they have some escape potential. This garden was completely secure and being able to walk across the small road directly into the Woods was perfect. The house was clean, beautifully presented and I would love to buy it and move in tomorrow.

    One small niggle is that there should be a mat in the shower cubicle to prevent slipping and falling. This is especially important for older visitors.

    Maybe an unusual reason for renting this cottage, but our daughter got married in Rothbury while we were staying here. This was an ideal base for our family, well equipped and with plenty of space to entertain visitors.

    A wonderfully luxurious and spacious cottage we thoroughly recommend. The big garden was brilliant for the kids. Our only complaint was the unreliable Wi-Fi!

    Faws House more than lived up to our expectations. The furnishings were good quality and it really felt home from home. Thanks to the sunny weather we were able to enjoy the large garden with plenty of mature trees, tree ropes for the kids, a big pond (safely covered over) and plenty of bird feeders attracting many garden birds. We were visited by other wildlife too, including two peacocks! Nice woodland walks from the house, and plenty of tourist attractions to suit all ages (including a wonderful coastline) close to hand.

    Faws house is a beautiful house, we have returned again and again, even though it's in a remote setting it's also fantastic for getting everywhere, ideal for visiting cragside and Alnwick but also easy to get further The house is always immaculate and makes me want to stay longer than just a week
