Linnet Cottage is a one bedroom self catering farm cottage with private parking and a garden solely for the guests' use. Ideal for guests wanting a peaceful short break and a comfortable base from which to explore Berwick-upon-Tweed and Northumberland.

Come and have some quality time on our family-run organic farm. The super king sized bed is perfect for a long-lie in the morning, watching deer graze in the field. Enjoy our fresh organic eggs for breakfast. There is always milk in the fridge, fresh flowers on the dining table and lots of information to help you decide where to venture that day. After a gentle start to the day enjoy a power shower with loads of hot water from our Biomass system. Linnet has local organic soap which smells absolutely divine.

For the those who like to head out for a long walk, our beaches are absolutely fantastic and only a 15 minute drive from Thornton. You could head for Alnwick Gardens or Lindisfarne. All wonderful days away and a slice of what Northumberland has to offer. If you want to stay close to home we offer walks around the farm so you too can share our 51 species of birdlife as noted by the RSPB. But sometimes it's just nice to curl up on the sofa and watch a DVD, browse the Sunday papers or have a leisurely glass of wine in the garden. With a south-facing garden looking out to fields you will have a lovely setting for a barbeque.

Our local pub is 1 mile away with good food, an open fire and real ales. Our local butcher, baker and newsagent are in Norham which is a 5 minute drive.

Pets are more than welcome and there is no extra charge. For couples with an infant, we have a travel cot and highchair. There would be no supplement for an infant or child aged under 3.

Lovely cottage on working farm. We stayed during a heatwave & was lovely & warm. Location lovely Only downside is that it describes cottage as semi but is actually only a quarter so lounge is very bi… More

Thank you very much for your feedback. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Thornton. I will attach an access statement to Linnet Cottage's listing so that people can see the size prior to booking. It is a petite cosy cottage but is spread over two levels. The dimensions of the ground floor sitting-room come kitchen diner are 12 square meters. I hope we can welcome you back soon.

Thank you for your lovely comments, glad to hear you slept well (very important on holiday)! Linnet Cottage is situated on a farm 5 miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed and our nearest pub is 5 minutes by car or 15 minutes on foot. I am pleased you had some great weather for the beach and the Farne Islands. Makes all the difference when you can see Lindisfarne Castle in sunshine! Thank you for staying with us and I hope to see you again soon.
