Cleo & Mark - B & B Armstrong Wing

We have had an amazing week at Cragend. A very comfortable holiday cottage with great views of the surrounding countryside. Super places to visit locally, with a beach never that far away. Cragside is right next door. Eco - credentials abound here with a wood burning stove. With WIFI and TV all the family were happy here. Brilliant!
