    We had a lovely 2 week holiday at The Old Pumphouse. Everything you could possibly need in the cottage is supplied and has been thought of. The owners are extremely helpful suggesting local places to visit and eat. The location is good, not too far from the coast for walks by the sea and plenty of walking directly from the door up into the Simonside Hills. Although pubs are a little far to walk at night there are some lovely local pubs to visit within walking distance during the day.

    Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Everything was spotless inside and the beds so very comfortable. The cottage is very well-equipped – the owners had pretty much thought of everything, including a welcoming bottle of wine. A great base to explore Northumberland. Loved that the Pump House is at the end of the lane so no through traffic; the only sounds the chirping of birds and occasional moo of a cow. Idyllic!

    A lovely quiet cottage, well stocked with all kinds of kitchen supplies. The owners were very friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. Walks from the door were an added bonus.

    This was our second holiday at The Old Pumphouse - the first week last year was so good, we stayed for 2 weeks this year and were certainly not disappointed with our decision. It is extremely difficult to fault this lovely cottage that nestles in an idyllic setting at the end of a country lane. From the warm welcome from the owners Fran and Alan on arrival, to the outstanding cleanliness of the cottage; from all the little "extras" provided in the kitchen and elsewhere, to the lovely garden; from the wonderfully comfortable bed, to the immaculate bathroom, everything about this cottage echoes welcome and quality. Despite the weather being cold during part of our stay (there was snow on the grass for two mornings - typically British late April), the cottage is beautifully cosy and the log stove helps the cosy atmosphere further, though the central heating is very efficient. The small town of Rothbury is about 40 minutes' walk along the picturesque River Coquet - we tended to extend our walk to the 17th Century Thrum Mill, around 1 mile further downstream, that has featured on Restoration Man and is well worth a look, before returning to Rothbury. The town itself had just about everything we needed and this meant a welcome break from the car, which was only necessary to travel further afield. There are some excellent pubs and coffee shops in Rothbury - Tomlinson's cafe in particular is worth a mention for wonderful coffee and cakes. For evening meals, The Three Wheatheads serves excellent dinners at reasonable prices and is around a 45 minute walk from the cottage, through the fields, in Thropton. Overall it is just about impossible to fault this cottage and its location - unless, of course, you like busy streets and nightclubs - in which case, the silence, broken only by the trickling stream right alongside the cottage and the sheep in the field nearby might be unbearable! A wonderful two weeks - we will be back!
