My husband, daughter and I stayed in Bracken End cottage, we were blown away by the cottage, it is clean, spacious and furnished to a high standard. The bedrooms are cosy and come with good quality bedding and furnishings! Wifi in the barn. The chickens are funny when they knock at the door to see if anyone will feed them. Slaley hall was a big bonus and we are so glad we took our swimming costumes! We are already trying to book up next year again!
My family and I stayed in the Lodge for a week I don't normally like going to the countryside but I really enjoyed staying there. My grandma even enjoyed it and she doesn't normally like going away. We stayed from the 22nd to the 29th, all the people staying in the other cottages were really nice, spoke to atleast one person from each cottage. Slaley hall spa was very fun and really enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Ruffside cottages and I would stay again, if my mum would let us go again :) x
These cottages are exceptional! Design, decor, quality, comfort in beautiful countryside, didn't want to leave, we stayed in The Furlong, two ensuite bedrooms plus toilet downstairs, huge sitting/dining area with kitchen at far end which consisted of every appliance required. Whilst we didn't need the facility there is a large building packed with children's games and toys , an outdoor play area adjacent too. The village of Blanchland is a delight with hundreds of years of history, all in all an extremely pleasant place to stay!
Just got back from a weeks stay here and I have to say the accomodation is fantastic. We stayed on a Wowcher deal and would have paid more if we had too and it was well worth the money. Stayed in Pipistrelle a one bedroomed cottage, it had everything you needed, A very large comfy bed, fantastic power shower and bath, fantastic equiped kitchen, with washer, dishwasher,fridge with small freezer,cooker and microwave combined. The lounge area had a two seater leather sofa and large TV with freeview. Outside was a small walled patio with table and chairs and the cottage overlooked fields and childrens playing area, but the children didn't spoil our stay. There is free WiFi in the games room but this can get noisy when the children are playing in there. If you like quite, peaceful places to stay this would suit you down to the ground, but we found it abit remote. The nearest pub is 2-3 miles away on a very winding road so you would need a car unless you are walkers then you would enjoy the walk. Apart from the games room and play area there is not much else for the children to do but if you had bikes the scenary is wonderful. All in all we had a lovely stay and would return for a long weekend.…
