We have just come back from 6 nights in this delightful cottage and would highly recommend. It has everything you will need and more! It is spotlessly clean and full of character. We loved the courtyard garden which was completely enclosed and safe for our dog. The utility room off the courtyard is very well equipped and also has a toilet & sink. The welcome back included a jar of delicious Northumbrian honey and some treats for our dog! Whittingham is a lovely village itself - we found an enjoyable short walk round the village that started up the lane at the end of the terrace. We loved Rothbury and Alnwick which are close by, and the Ingram valley which you can turn into just after Powburn is absolutely beautiful and perfect for walking. Lindisfarne and Bamburgh are just a short drive away and were both stunning. Great location to stay in as you are close to both the National Park and the coast. We would love to come back to this cottage as there is just so much more to see and do!

Lovely cottage and a good week. Enjoyed coastal walks and a lovely sunny day for walking in hills. Thrunton Woods was an experience (we got a bit lost and met ponies who tried to eat the map!)

The village of whittlingham is a haven in the middle of the most beautiful national park - the cottage has everything to make it a home from home - the peacefulness here is unique and with the amenities of Alnwick a few miles away it's ideal to completely relax and switch off - the fast broadband , log burner and well equipped kitchen leaves one wanting to get out and about in the day and then cooking up and enjoying the cosines of the cottage in the evening -
The proximity of the coast and being in the middle of the national park makes this a rare paradise - many thanks to Mundles !
J & J - Brighton - East Sussex -
We arrived at Mundles after a long drive north and were delighted to find such a cosy, clean and comfortable cottage, in the peaceful solitude of Whittingham. We really appreciated that the fire had been laid ready for lighting, and we found the kitchen well equipped with all we needed to prepare food with ease. It felt very home from home, all furnishings tastefully chosen to create a very warm and relaxing atmosphere. The beautiful secluded courtyard at the back of the cottage is a real treat for breakfast or evening supper. (We recommend oysters from Lindisfarne oyster company!) We would definitely recommend this cottage and look forward very much to returning.
