We love the location of this property as it gives a great base for exploring the local area. The property itself must one of the best we have had the pleasure to stay in. It is maintained to a very high standard and very spacious. We are reluctant to tell too many people about the place in fear of not being able to book a place ourselves in the future.
Mr Chadwick

The cottage was lovely; clean, comfortable and spacious with everything you require thought about and provided. A real gem. The cottage provides a wonderful place to just relax in, it is also ideally situated for visits to Hexham, Durham and many more places of historic or natural beauty. We will definitely be visiting again and will recommend to friends and family.
