Property Spotlight: Honeymug

One of our most popular and luxurious properties, but what is that makes people keep coming back to Honeymug for more?

Since going live on our site in Autumn 2014, Honeymug has proved to be a massively popular holiday destination for all sorts of different groups - from groups of friends looking for a weekend catch up, to couples and young families who appreciate the luxurious and spacious feel, to larger family groups that need a large property like Honeymug as their base of operations for a week-long assault on Northumberland!

Traditionally stone-built, with its exposed beams as well as the log burner and the delightful welcome hamper are all features that make Honeymug a wonderful cottage in its own right (and very quirky with its upside-down arrangement!)…but throw in a large swimming pool, state of the art gym, sauna, steam room, spa, games room, tennis court, mini golf, croquet lawn and a private lake…wow, that is one heck of a package right there!

What about the owners?

Purely a business decision or did they see the same attraction that has our guests coming back time after time…

“We fell in love with Honeymug as soon as we stepped foot in the cottage. We'd seen a few others in the process of looking for a holiday home, but the atmosphere of calm relaxation touched us straight away, the cottage enveloping us like an old friend. It's felt like that ever since and it's been wonderful to read the comments of our guests who feel the same way as well as have some wonderful family times there.”

What do the guests say?

To date, Honeymug has collected 17 reviews on Trip Advisor and all 17 of them are 5 stars out of 5! There's no better recommendation of a holiday cottage than from the people who've stayed there. Time and again people talk about the relaxing atmosphere, the excellent facilities and wanting to come back! But don't just take our word for it, you can take a look at the reviews just here...

Our view...

For us, Honeymug simply has the perfect mix...not only is it a wonderful cottage in a beautifully tranquil location, but combine those things with first class facilities to help either unwind or get active and throw in the Northumberland National Park which is right on your'll struggle to find a better package than that! An added bonus, of course, is that all the delights of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are within easy reach too - Holy Island, The Farne Islands as well as a plethora of amazing beaches in locations such as Bamburghm, Beadnell, Embleton and Warkworth.

All in will LOVE Honeymug!
