"Homely, comfy, and peaceful, a charming retreat."
Easy to find. Ample parking. Quiet, when the trains aren't running, but you do get used to them. Perfect for anyone who loves railways at all. The cottage is very well equipped, with everything we needed, and more. It was warm, comfy sofa and chairs, bed first class, lovely clean linen. Cottage is rustic, bot we thought that was part of it's charm. Well situated for Holly Island, Lindisfarne, and Farne Islands. Lots of great walking and castles close by.

"Good value but .........."
We must begin by saying that we had a wonderful break away in a cottage that was very good value, had every cooking utensil you could ever need and some, had a lovely quirky appealing style and which … More
Thank you very much for the constructive criticism which I always appreciate. As a result of your comments I am working on more detailed instructions for getting the best out of the central heating and hot water supply, and considering changing the departure time to 10.30 for family groups as I agree it can be hard for a family to vacate earlier. My apologies for the absence of kindling, which should have been there.

"perfect weekend base"
Perfect for us as a weekend base. We knew the area well as we had lived in Whickham until 3 years ago.The house was warm and welcoming and supplied with all we might need. The bed in the front bedroom was very comfortable. Lovely big kitchen and sitting room. Not sure about a longer stay as the trains first thing Monday morning were very close and the noise intrusive.We were aware of how close the railway was as we had googled the area and came prepared with ear plugs, but overnight we didn't hear any. It was the perfect situation for us as we were attending a wedding at Doxford, so not too far to travel after the evening do.

"Pleasant stay within a comfortable setting"
We stayed at this cottage for a week. Despite the railway line being 200 yards from the house the stay itself was ok.The railway was audible during periods within the day and night.The accommodation w… More
Thanks for the feedback and we'll continue to aim to make sure that the house is prepared to a very high standard. I feel though that Station Cottage is already accurately described both in the online description and in the many very positive reviews people have left - as well as in the very good value that guests benefit from.
