History lovers, peace seekers and observers of nature will mellow further in this glorious spot overlooking the Cheviot hills. On arrival enjoy cake and tea with the evening sun – in the sun room, or in the garden on warm days. Indulge yourself with one of Ginia's wonderful big breakfasts, stride through iron age forts and the remains of Saxon palaces or visit long white beaches; return to Welsh slate floors, wood-burners, a delicious dinner, feather and down on deep comfy mattresses and fluffy towels; the twin beds have cheerful patchwork quilts made by Ginia. She and Peter are amiable hosts and the super garden is filled with roses in summer.

"Laundry Cottage and its hosts were for us a perfect place to stay in the tranquil beautiful spring countryside of Northumberland. Wonderful evening meal and views made all the better by our hosts welcome and care. Very comfortable twin room with plenty of space and everything you needed, lovely bathroom too."

"We had an excellent stay with great hosts Ginia and Peter in their delightful cottage.With one of us needing special dietary requirements they couldn't have been more helpful and kind in preparing separate special food for the evening meal and it was all delicious. We enjoyed sitting in the guest rom overlooking the garden in its lovely setting. The room was also lovely and comfortable and we had a lovely breakfast the following morning. We would recommend Laundry Cottage highly"

"We were made very welcome by Ginia and Peter who really put themselves out to sort out our needs. The bedroom was very comfortable and every where was spotlessly clean. The shower room was separate but perfect for our needs. Breakfast with free range eggs from their own chickens and home made bread was delicious. I would go again!"

"This cottage is in an idyllic quiet country location and provides comfortable accommodation in a relaxed atmosphere. The hosts were extremely welcoming and kindly provided an evening meal on arrival despite short notice booking. Highly recommended for travellers wanting to stay in rural bliss although eating and other facilities are available within 4-5 miles."

"This was our second visit to Laundry Cottage and we wished we could have stayed longer. Ginia and Peter are charming and entertaining hosts and Ginia is a wonderful cook. We love the atmosphere (very relaxed and welcoming) and the setting - glorious walking and access to beautiful and remote Northumberland. Highly recommended and we shall definitely return again."

"Lovely place. We only stayed a night on our way up to Scotland, but Peter and Ginia were great hosts and we had a lovely meal with them. Our tire had gotten a flat and they were very helpful sorting us out at a local garage. The conservatory view is particularly lovely. They have very well behaved, lovely dogs. Our room did not have an ensuite, but that did not bother us in the least. Would definitely recommend. "
