We had a lovely long weekend at Poppy's. Clean, modern, well equipped and homely. Also VERY child friendly (2 families with young children). This accommodation really suited us and we found there… More

Thank you for your lovely review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the local attractions. We do strive to have everything perfect for our guests arrival and apologise about the lawn, we do have have a gardener and will find out why it had not been cut for your arrival. Black out blinds is on our list of improvements to make this year and we hope you will look to stay at the Poppy's again.

My wife and I stayed at 'Poppy's' recently, it is like a home from home, with cleanliness and practicality as standard, we loved the area and the proximity to Morpeth, Alnwick and the spectacular Northumberland coastline. We will definitely be returning!!! An example to others!!
