A well equipped modern lodge that provides a great base to explore the rest of Northumberland. by Kerry Braid

We stayed Monday - Friday and the lodge was perfect for what we needed. Modern & well equipped and the addition of the hot tub was great! A little disappointing there wasnt more on the actual site, but Alnwick is only a few minutes in the car and was a lovely town for shops, places to eat and of course the castle. Wed definitely stay again and Id recommend it to others.

We booked this stay back in March view the view to exploring the beautiful Northumberland coastline. This place did not disappoint. The fridge freezer enabled us to cook in the lodge most of the week. It was a great base to travel to all places easily. You do need to plan before returning to site if you need essentials like beer and wine or even bread and milk as there is no shop near the site. It didnt cause a problem for us because Alnwick has Aldi and Sainsburys and many other food shops. Failing that head on down to the Bari Bar! Absolutely fantastic food trucks which turn up on Fridays and Saturdays, staff are brilliant. Its not the most attractive bar but very friendly and welcoming. live music on Saturdays if thats your thing. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners of our lodge before we left at 10am. Very lovely couple, it was an honour to spend a week in there home. We would definitely stay there again.

Sunflower Retreat has all you require to have an enjoyable break. it is on a good plot on the site with an fenced hot tube. hot been the operative word as it was never less than 40 degree C. It has a large American fridge/freezer, microwave and full size gas oven if you wish to cook. The site is quiet with very few onsite facilities ie bar and cafe all though you can walk through the golf course to their bar so its best to bring some supplies with you milk bread etc The accommodation provides a temperamental blue tooth speaker system which when paired to a phone is very good.The large TV provides all the normal channels and as a bonus Netflix . The only negative I would say was that there was evidence of dogs within the main living room, hairs and a wet dog smell

Throughly enjoyed my stay here and this lodge in particular, it was a home from home. Everything you needed it had It. Such a warm cosy vibe to it and beds were very comfortable too. I stay in a lot of logges/log cabins every month and can say this has been the best to date simply for its home from home feeling and cleanliness is second to none which I was very impressed giving I had ocd. Overall fantastic stay and accommodation I will definitely be returning! Oh and the tv in the childrens bedroom was a fabulous touch I could enjoy a wine in peace, great!

Lovely pet friendly lodge in a great location , ideal for trips out to warkworth , amble etc. Beds really comfortable and plenty of kitchen space. The only issues we had was the wifi did not work all weekend, bit of a problem as my daughter could not connect her laptop to revise for exams the next week. Also we could not get the heating right to make sure the lodge stayed warm, it was on a timer that we could not get right in particular for mornings when it was very cold. Other than that we would definitely stay again.

We booked on the Friday at 2pm the lodge was all ready and available for 3pm. All arrival instructions very clear no problems at all The accommodation is better than the photographs we were very pleasantly surprised. The bed was very clean and comfortable along with everything in the accomodation. The hot tub looked really big we didn't have time to use it maybe next time. We would definitely return as the location was quiet but accessible to everything.

We have just got back from our weekend stay at Sunflower retreat. When we arrived we were amazed at how tidy and well presented this caravan was. There was plenty of space for myself, my wife, our two year old son and the dog. The caravan had everything you could possibly need, nice American fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer / dryer (which was ideal with a toddler) hob and built in oven and grill. Both the TV's had built in fire TV so you were able to log in to your fave apps like netflix, prime and Disney. There were also lovely touches like super soft throws by the sofas and the cute ornaments dotted throughout. The beds were so comfortable snd both showers were nice and powerful as well as been lovely and hot. The bathroom in the main bedroom was a bonus so I didn't disturb my son once he was in bed. The perfect finish to this was the hottub which we all loved using. It was well managed and very clean. My son was able to come and go easily as it was right outside as well as the dog having the freedom of relaxing on the balcony. I could go on and on, but I will leave this review by saying it was perfect in every way and we will definitely be booking again. Hemera were brilliant, friendly and very helpful in getting this booked
