We were delighted with the cottage and there was plenty of room for the 12 of us. We loved staying at Chimney Gill and hope to return soon.
Mrs Oades

Everything was excellent. The house and furnishings were comfortable, coordinated and spotless and the welcome was exceptional. The central heating was so good we didn't bother with the fire. welcome pack was very generous and everything else one could need was available. The wifi was as good as I am used to in London despite the house being relatively isolated. Staying at lambing time was perfect and every was very helpful in telling us how the farm worked.

We stayed here for a birthday and Mother's Day. The layout of the ground floor (a big L shape) is perfect for social family life. Nice sized bedrooms with massive beds, with 2/3 rooms have good views. Kitchen is well equipped and real fire very welcome. The owner/farmer let us in to see the young lambs and was friendly throughout. No complaints and an excellent stay.

An absolutely beautifully looked after cottage with wonderfully spacious rooms and surrounded by fabulous walks.
Miss Durham

The accommodation was blissfully quiet and in an ideal location for travelling to places in The Lakes, Northumberland or even the Borders of Scotland. The owners were particularly thoughtful, helpful and friendly.
