Our award winning cottages offer excellent value for money. 2007 Self-catering Silver Award for Excellence, 2002 Self-catering of the Year, 1999 Self- Catering of the Year Runner-Up and Green Tourism Silver Award.
a) Cosy Cottage
b) Open fires
c) Enclosed garden with patio. Play area.
d) The possibility of a chef on request and bespoke cakes for those special occasions.
e) Special discounts for two people (based on 2 people sharing one bed - if extra bed required there is a £15.00 charge).
The Cottage is securely tucked away on our family farm but mercifully out of earshot, offering a perfect holiday retreat! You can sit outside on the patio, relax and enjoy the rolling countryside all the way to the Cheviot Hills or rustle up a meal on the outdoor B.B.Q - the choice is yours.
Children can safely view the livestock - cattle, sheep, llamas, hens and horses! Little boys will dream of driving massive tractors and machinery and becoming farmers. But why limit the dream to little boys! Little girls can be equally fascinated. They can all safely cycle near the cottages- wind in their hair, sun on their faces and enjoy the freedom . What more could you ask for?

Northern England region
The cottage is ideally situated for enjoying the Northumberland coast, Holy and Farne Islands, Cheviot Hills and the Scottish Borders, with the advantage of being just one hour's drive from both Edinburgh and Newcastle.
Berwick is situated in the Borders of Scotland and England and is famous for its unique Elizabethan walls and the splendid views of the town from 'Megs Mount' and 'Brass Bastion'.
Within easy reach are the Cheviots, which offer exceptional hill walking, the Farne Islands where seals and large numbers of seabirds are resident plus some excellent SCUBA diving. Lindisfarne of course is famous for its part in early Christianity in England (Check safe crossing times here.). The Tweed valley offers some of the best fishing in the UK and bird watching in the unspoiled countryside is a pleasure.
There are a large number of country houses nearby, which are open to the public including Paxton House and Manderston. Floors Castle at Kelso, and Alnwick Castle (the location for the 'Harry Potter' movie) both make interesting day-trips. Children will enjoy Heatherslaw Mill with its narrow gauge railway or feeding the animals at Conundrum Farm Trail.
The cottage enjoys panoramic views of the Cheviot Hills, and acres of beautiful countryside. It is open all year and even out of season is the ideal winter and early season retreat with its open fire and cosy soft furnishings. Adults and children alike will be fascinated by the pet llamas - Rowan and Mika. The friendly working collies are ever welcoming and George the rooster will sound your early morning call.
The cottage is 2½ miles from the nearest local Post Office and shops at East Ord. Berwick-upon-Tweed is only 4½ miles away and has a good selection of supermarkets, shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a sports centre with swimming pool and arts centre. The long, sandy, Northumbrian beaches, such as Cocklawburn and Bamburgh, are only a few miles away.

When we arrived we had a very warm welcome with a real open coal lit fire, kettle boiling and cakes and scones waiting on the table. How lovely. When we opened the fridge to get the milk found some delicious jam and fresh cream. The cottage was perfect for us and very special. The cottage furnishings were lovely and of a very high standard. We couldn't believe how lucky we were. Nice convenient parking and pleasant surroundings. Peaceful back garden with amazing countryside views and garden furniture to relax. The farm animals were a pleasure to see especially the chickens. We had a great holiday and would love to go back again to explore the area more. We looked at the garden house before we left and this was amazing too. Seeing the quality of furnishings in this made us appreciate what we'd had even more. We had the the same quality on a smaller scale. We would recommend booking this cottage and are sure you won't be disappointed.

"Comfortable, well equipped, beautifully furnished, warm welcome :)"
Primrose Cottage, situated on West Longridge Farm, is beautifully appointed and very well maintained. It is clear that Robert Whitten, the owner, takes pride in his cottages. We were greeted by a roaring fire, homemade cakes, a cream tea and a warm welcome by Robert.
We were extremely comfortable in the cottage and even though Robert showed us how to light a fire, given that we were so inept, he kindly came in daily to light it for us.
The views from the garden were spectacular and we enjoyed a couple of barbeques during our week. To the front, we enjoyed seeing the chickens roaming around. Robert kindly allowed us to feed the four Llamas on the farm.
The cottage was well located for the Northumberland Coast, including Bamburgh for the castle and beach, Seahouses for access to the Farne Islands, the Holy Island of Lindesfarne, The Cheviot Hills, Edinburgh and the local town of Berwick. We had a wonderful dinner at "The Cross", Paxton, which we would recommend. There were supermarkets nearby for stocking up, which we did, even though we had organised a Tesco home delivery for when we arrived.
Finally, we were lucky enough to be treated to a display of Robert's homemade cakes, which had been painstakingly decorated. It was hard to believe that he had done these by hand, so intricate were the designs.
Primrose Cottage comes highly recommended. Book it. You won't be disappointed.

"Beautiful location, excellent accomodation and friendly welcome."
What a welcome. When we arrived the coal fire was lit and afternoon tea had been provided - much needed after a 4 and a half hour journey! The accomodation is excellent and very clean. Robert (the owner) has put a lot of thought into the furnishings making it feel like a real treat to stay there. We were made to feel very welcome. My 2 lads enjoyed the small play area at the front of the property, the friendly chickens and the walks with their dad around the farm to see the tractors and the Llamas. My 5 year old described the holiday as awesome.
