Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. plenty of space, everything you could need. It felt like you were moving into someone else’s home for a week. The kitchen was well equipped, games for the children and plenty of books. It was great for all 12 of us to be able to sit around one table for meals. March 2012.
  2. Great place to stay with a family. Lovely house, very well furnished, very well provided. The kids had a great time, lots of things for them to do and places for them to go. We will go again. March 2012.
  3. A fantastic house which is very welcoming and perfect for family get togethers. Oct 2011.
  4. A cosy and well equipped cottage, a warm welcome, beautiful scenery, a great holiday. Sept 2011.
  5. The property had everything we needed, plus extras. A lovely welcome pack and a good supply of luxury toiletries. The location was quiet with nice walks from the door, but also had the convenience of being near main roads with easy routes to shops and popular visitor locations such as Beamish. (We found the child locks on the cupboards frustrating, but appreciate some families may need them). Sept 2011.
  6. Myself and 10 others stayed in this Cottage and all thought it was Perfect . If you are after a quiet get away, this is perfect. Nice walks nearby, and 2 local pubs in the same street. Local shop bit further, but only a mile or so. Cottage had everything you could need and more, from everything in the Beautiful Kitchen, to the games and room and BBQ in the Big garden. We will definatley stay here again. May 2011.
  7. Fantastic property, like a tardis, rooms everywhere!!! May 2011.
  8. Very pleasant, well equipped cottage. Feb 2011.
  9. The owners went that extra bit further in welcoming us to their holiday home, sending a friendly informative letter before departure listing all the things to be found at the house to save us packing extra, and a table full of welcoming gifts e.g. fruit basket, fresh bread, eggs from own chickens! Nov 2010.
  10. We enjoyed the space, the facilities were 1st class and everything was on hand that we could possibly require. The welcome pack was amazing, particularly the fruit basket and eggs. Oct 2010.
  11. Had everything we needed and more - very well equipped and spotlessly clean. July 2010.
  12. The property was extremely clean, beautifully presented and very well equipped. The welcome pack was amazing, fresh fruit, cakes, milk, eggs, bread, jams, biscuits, chocolates and each child received a selection box. Communication with the owner was excellent. Dec 2009.
  13. This is the third time we have visited Arrow Cottage and each time we have received a warm welcome, fantastic welcome pack and clean comfortable accommodation. We can’t wait to come again. Dec 2009.
  14. A wonderful cottage witth many added extras that were greatly appreciated. Oct 2009.
  15. The owners were very approachable and always very helpful. The children all loved the games room and there were lots of toys and games for all age groups. The kitchen was very well equipped. I would be very happy to book Arrow cottage again. It has everything you need for a family holiday and extremely helpful owners. Aug 2009.
  16. We found everything about Arrow cottage excellent. We really felt at home and the owners were very helpful. Jan 2009.
  17. A beautiful cottage that we all agreed we would love to live in. Nothing was too much trouble - there were Easter eggs on arrival for each of the kids as we were there over Easter weekend. There was an impressive selection of fruit and veg, and eggs from the owner’s hens. I have never seen so many games, DVDs, CDs and books. There would have been plenty to do without ever leaving the cottage. April 2009.
  18. Arrow Cottage is a wonderful property to stay in, the owners are lovely and a credit to the industry. Could not have been better. Aug 2008.
  19. Wonderfully well equipped. Every home comfort provided, including a great welcome pack of essentials and luxuries. Highly recommended. March 2008.
  20. We have been on quite a few long weekend holidays away but this accommodation is the best so far.The personal touches from the owner i.e. Welcome pack, correspondence and telephone conversations have been second to none, so we thank you for that. Sept 2008.
