My husband and I, along with our Beagle Ruby, stayed at St Coombs Farmhouse for just over a week. My sister and her partner also stayed for a few nights to meet up and enjoy a relaxing few days on this wonderful 'island'. The farmhouse was quite outstanding. It was very comfortable due to it's large rooms which were warm and cozily furnished, with a large farmhouse kitchen with an Aga and a sitting room with lovely open fire to burn logs.We found everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking meals and the beds were large comfortable and clean. I did notice that the main bedroom duvet cover was starting to wear and the seam had come apart in one corner. Not problematic but just an observation.
We loved sitting in the conservatory as again, the furnishings were very comfortable. We were delighted to be rewarded with a Hawfinch in the garden late one afternoon which was very pleasing as part of the purpose for coming was to do a spot of birding. We also had a Snow Bunting close by along with all the usual autumn visitors one would expect at this time of year.
I'd also like to say a special thanks to Stay Northumbria staff who not only added a last minute request for an additional night's stay at the accommodation without any fuss but also managed very quickly to get the Aga reset remotely when a power cut shut it down. The impact of being without the heat was soon felt but the other cooker, the underfloor heating and the fire came into their own.
We've been to Lindisfarne many times over the last forty odd years but this was the best accommodation we've had. Will definitely stay again next time we come. I would have no reservations of booking through Stay Northumbria.
