"We have enjoyed a much-needed break and the apartment has provided a sanctuary for us. It has been superb, warm and cosy with good facilitis also peace and quiet and beautiful surroundings. Ideally situated for exploring Northumberland and we have enjoyed many stunning locations - beaches, castles and country houses and a lovely log burner to spend the evening with! Thank you for providing that and we would love to return."
Our expectations were exceeded - very well appointed apartment - very comfy beds and cosy home. An astonishing home with sublime views and grounds to explore. The dog was in seventh heaven and we would certainly recommend Meldon Park.
Lovely, welcoming and comfortable apartment. Lots of room to relax in which is really what we wanted. We have found so many places to visit- old and new. Thank you for allowing us to sta, hope to come again.
"Wow, what a treat!" We found your holiday home simply wonderful, we enjoyed all the space and lovely walks in the grounds. The children loved seeing the dogs and horses. Beautiful location we enjoyed exploring Northumberland and hope to return. Thank you to the Cookson Family and to Graham and Linda for being so helpful and friendly and giving us tips on where to explore and visit in the ares. We didnt want to leave!!
"Thank you for a lovely week celebrating my 50th with our family! The house was very well equipped, cosy and comfortable. Everything made for a truly wonderful stay."
Lovely Feedback October 2019
We have had a lovely week, with the cold bright weather showing off the autumnal glory of the park and surrounding areas. It has made an ideal base to see the region - would love to come again in spring as a contrast. Inside has been warm and cosy. We have had everything we have needed for a relaxing holiday and felt very welcome at Meldon Park. Thanks you Emily and James - Loved the Eggs!!
We have visited this area on a number of occasions. We were very impressed with the accomodation and of course greatly appreciated the basket of goodies left for us on our arrival. We have enjoyed exceptional weather. Despite the long legged journey from Cornwall we would like to return. Meldon Park has much to offer with excellent position, beautiful grounds and the feeling of being able to get away from the usual hurly burly
Thank you Emily and family for being very welcoming. All of the animals were a hit with our children and the views and surrounding area are delightful. Positioned perfectly for all we had planned.
"This place is fabulous and provided everything we needed. Although weather was less than springlike we still managed to enjoy Bamburgh and Cresswell beaches a day trip to Edinburgh and the Kelpies, Cragside, Alnwick, Wallington, Seaton Delaval and Morpeth.
The heating and woodburner kept us toasty in the evenings, which the dogs loved. Best welcome pack we have ever had!! Stunning views from the garden, so glad we have found this place for future visits. Looking forward to coming back again next year."
April 2019 "Thank you so much to Emily for our wonderful stay. The apartment has been gorgeous to stay in. We very much appreciated our welcome basket and your friendliness. Everyone has made our holiday an absolute pleasure. The surrounding land and further out have been a delightful place to spend time in and we are all leaving refreshed and recharged. We will miss your dogs too!"
"What a perfect place to explore Northumberland! Thank you to Emily and James for providing such a welcome and the maps! Both were much appreciated. Meldon provides a very rare combination. We felt utterly welcomed into a busy environment (house, office, stables, dogs, horses, family etc) and yet enjoyed our stay in perfect peace. Very clever to strike such a balance! As regular users of holiday accomodation we kept trying to think of things we missed - we could not manage a single one! Many thanks indeed. "
"Our first visit to the area and we have loved it - especially Druridge Bay - the dogs favourite place and the wide open far reaching views. We have enjoyed coming back to the tranquility of Meldon Park after a day exploring. As others have said Emily and James have been welcoming light-touch hosts and everyone we have met have been really friendly and helpful which has made a big difference. We have been really comfortable and relaxed here, found the apartment well equipped and enjoyed the privilege to stroll around the beautiful park-land. Aug 2018

"We have enjoyed a very relaxing week here at Meldon. The apartment has everything you need, very homely and cosy, we loved the very welcoming, warm log burner when we arrived and the basket of goodies in the kitchen. We loved walking Lulu around the grounds and were lucky to be here at snowdrop time. Meldon Park is simply stunning and we feel very lucky to be able to stay somewhere so special. Thank you for sharing what is your family home - we will definitely return!!"

One of the nicest apartments/places we have ever stayed in. Views are absolutely breaktaking, made even more so by the snow!! Emily and James are extremely friendly hosts without taking over which was very thoughtful and inobtrusive. Maisy (our dog) was made to feel very welcome too. Lovely walks around the estate. The apartment is very well kitted out, everything you needed and lovely and warm. Easy access to main roads and towns making it easy to get around and visit nearby places of interest. We visited Morpeth, Alnmouth, Creswell, Warkworth and took the train to York for a day.Thank you for the welcome basket.

A wonderful delightful location, very comfortable and very well located for all the attractions of Northumberland.
The hosts are very attentive without being intrusive and the accomodation is very comfortable and clean. I would highly recommend this holiday house in the most splendid country house and grounds with wonderful views the surrounding countryside.
Thank you for a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing time.
Lovely comments from our guest from Switzerland:
"What a place!! Spent very relaxing (blue-skied) days at Meldon Park. Everything was well organised and easy going. Thanks a lot. I'll be back"
"Perfect retreat, spacious, homely and with everything you need. So nice to have free reign to walk around the estate. Lots of lovely space. All in all we had a wonderfully relaxed time where everything was thought about. Thank you for all your hard work and care you put into everything, making our stay (and others too) very enjoyable." Nov 2017.So sorry we didn't get the chance to say goodbye this morning and to thank you for a wonderful stay in your apartment this past week although we did bump into James this morning while walking the dogs. I also wanted to leave our Thanks on paper but couldn't find a pen anywhere (although I found one in my bag on the way home - oops). We had such a wonderful stay at Meldon Park and would love to visit again sometime. You really have thought of everything particularly in the kitchen that was refreshing in a holiday let. The bed was so comfy - we didn't want to get up in the mornings and it was only the dogs that forced us to get up!! The grounds are beautiful and such a treat to enjoy them for a week.
Once again please accept our sincere thanks and hope to see you again sometime. Nov 2017

“Spending some time at Meldon Park is a special experience. The setting is beautiful and the accommodations are quiet and very comfortable, perfect as a refuge from urban noise and tension. Emily was a welcoming, kind, and helpful host. We wish we could have stayed longer!” May 2017
