Affectionately called ‘Craggy’, it’s one of a small number of holiday cottages in the village of Powburn, near Morpeth, that’s so large you could actually live in it – permanently! No expense has been spared on the decor, fixtures and fittings – I think the TV is even bigger than the one we have at home, it’s got TWO en-suites, a massive lounge and even (satellite) internet!
Morpeth’s Food and Wine Festival
We’ve stayed at quite a few places in our travels over the years – from camp-sites in the UK to top-notch Hotels and Resorts around the world, but this place has already set a benchmark that’s going to be hard to beat in the future. How’s this for an example of ‘thinking of everything’? The mobile signal here is pretty poor, but a few networks are better than others, so they’ve helpfully provided a mobile phone for our use. Add to that: a fully equipped hi-fi system with an iPOD dock, full central heating AND a wood-burner, microwave, washing machine, a double sized hob and oven, a dishwasher – and washing-up gloves too!
Oh, and a Spa AND an indoor swimming pool!
..and a welcome basket that would have kept us going for a day-or-so!
Tonight, our needs are more straightforward – we’re eating in and putting the kitchen through its paces!
Tomorrow, we’re out and about exploring Rothbury and then Cragside.
