Carole Ann's home was a home from home for me and my family. The location was quiet and peaceful, ideal after a day of coastal walking and sight seeing. Every where we visited was just a short drive away. Carole Ann provided an abundance of information of places to visit so no need for our research before we arrived in Northumberland! I would definitely recommend to anyone I know visiting the area.

Owner's reply: So pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed your week in the Shieling. I hope you all returned home rested and refreshed. I would be very pleased to welcome you back anytime. Thank you Rachel.

We were delighted with the cottage, plenty of space for parking and views to the sea beyond. A special thanks to Carole Anne who had added nice touches - a welcome tea tray, sweets and flowers plus many thoughtful pieces of information for her visitors and the property was spotlessly clean. A short drive away is Warkworth which is quite a special place, well kept and situated within easy reach of many of the attractive small towns and attractions in Northumberland - we visited as many as we could in the week! Hope to come back again. Sarah

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review S. I would love to have you back to stay. You are very welcome anytime. Carole Ann.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review Pamela. It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed staying in the Shieling and visiting the beautiful Northumbrian country, sea side. There is something magic about sitting in the sun lounge watching the birds skim and swoop as dusk falls. Especially with a glass of something nice! Much appreciated your leaving the Cottage so clean and tidy. Welcome back anytime, Carole Ann.
