Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This cottage is cosy and welcoming. It is perfect for a couple or small family (like ourselves). It is located on a sheep farm in teh North Pennines. The local wildlife is fabulous. We quite often just sat with the window open listening to the birds and watching the Lapwings swooping in the field to the rear of us. You are welcome to explore the land that the farm is sited on and there is a map of local paths in the cottage for you to view. It’s a good base to explore the valleys and moors of the North Pennines. The local pub (just under 2 miles away) serves honest homemade food - we struck it lucky, it was ’pie week’ the week we stayed! The local town of Alston has all the shops that you could wish for and has a real community feel. In the other direction you have Haltwhistle, a great place to begin to explore Hadrian’s Wall. If you are into the outdoors and exploring the natural world, want somewhere to feel removed from the trials and tribulations of every day life, and wish to step out of your cottage and gaze over beautiful views then this is the place for you. I could not recommend it highly enough! April 2012.
  2. Idyllic surroundings, breathtaking scenery, cottage just the right size for our needs and very clean and comfortable all round, very impressed! Oct 2010.
  3. Homely and comfortable, limited head height in upstairs bedroom. Oct 2010.
  4. Well positioned, well decorated and clean. Sept 2010.
  5. Clean and bright but cosy and homely. Beds very comfortable! Aug 2010.
  6. Cosy, tastefully decorated. All essential features present. July 2010.
