NORTHWOOD quality apartment - great value

 The property is in a lovely area, the apartment is well maintained, clean, quite and safe, we felt very much at home, it is well equipped for a short or long stay, it is close to the town of Warkworth, which we also found a lovely town, clean and friendly with all amenities, the surrounding countryside was beautiful and interesting, plenty of places to go and see, we certainly hope to return.
