Skylark Cottage

Skylark Cottage is a three bedroom self catering farm cottage in Northumberland welcoming guests since 2009.  As the cottage is situated 7 miles outside Berwick-upon-Tweed, Skylark is the ideal self catering cottage for exploring Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.

Firstly, Skylark Cottage is a fantastic holiday cottage for families, a group of friends or couples wishing a bit of extra space. Being all on ground floor level the cottage comfortably sleeps six guests and is ideal for guests of all ages.  Secondly, we welcome pets at Thornton Farm Cottages with up to three dogs allowed per booking.  The garden is safe and enclosed making it a great outdoor space for all the family.  You might have the donkeys or perhaps our Herdwick sheep as neighbours during your stay. Certainly, Skylark is the perfect place for getting away from it all.

The rental includes bedlinen, towels, heating, electricity and WiFi.  Being a self catering cottage we also provide oven gloves, a dishcloth, bath mats, 2 baskets of logs, kindling and basic cleaning stuffs.  Please see below details of every room:
