"Isolated Cottage - nice kitchen, minimal furnishings, one room damp"
9 Miles from pretty market town of Morpeth, 3 miles from nearest shop (Belsay). Cottage is not stand alone built into a working farm with sheep in adjacent fields and the farmers house opposite. We were invited to play with a delightful litter of puppies at the farm house :-)
Spacious kitchen, one bathroom with immersion heater for hot water driven from a timer. The timer did fail one morning leaving us with cold showers.
Spacious room but minimally furnished - living room has freeview and DVD player.
One bedroom felt damp, with a wardrobe that left clothes feeling damp and windows fixed shut.
We needed an isolated place as a base for day trips - the cottage was adequate though a little overpriced in comparison to other properties.
Had a good time :-)
