“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is an excellent place for a holiday. Corbridge and Hexham are historic locations and you can easily explore Hadrians Wall, Vindalanda is particularly recommended.
Also the Beamish museum is only half an hours drive away
The accomodation was as described and just what we wanted

“Beautiful cottage- peaceful location- highly recommended”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My mum and I had a lovely week staying at the cottage. The weather was chilly, but we were cosy at the cottage and it was lovely to come home after exploring each day. Having a car was helpful for us, but in warmer weather it is close enough to nearby villages and towns that you could manage with a bike. Thanks Susie for a lovely stay. The cottage is well set- up for self-catering.

“Lovely cottage, beautiful surroundings.”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a lovely stay in Dilston Cottage this spring. It was a perfect place to stay for a few days - though having a car on hand to explore the surrounding countryside is handy here (and you can park your car on the secluded parking lot). The nicely decorated cottage comes with a small private garden and is conveniently located - both close to Newcastle and close to the beautiful ruins of Hadrian's wall, which we explored during the 6 days we stayed here.
Corbridge is a charming little village with some small shops and restaurants, nearby Hexham has more facilities (larger supermarket). We cooked our own meals though, as the kitchen was well equipped and it was such a cosy place to ‘come home to’ after a day of exploring. The beds were superb and the peaceful, quiet surroundings guaranteed a good night’s sleep. Susie and her husband were friendly and welcoming when you need them – placing some fresh eggs from their own hens on your kitchen table when you arrive for example - but completely respect your privacy otherwise, which is great. To summarize all this in two words: highly recommended!

Dilston Cottage was easy to find with the directions provided by the owner.
We were greeted with a warm friendly welcome on arrival then left to relax and enjoy the well equipped cottage and the local surroundings. The host Susie was helpful with tips on local dining options and other general items of interest.
Corbridge is the local village only 5 minutes away which we loved whilst Hexham is a further 15 minutes with a Tesco extra store for all your needs.
Newcaslte airport only 30 minutes away with the A68 and A69 providind great access.

“Fab cottage, idyllic surroundings and views”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at Dilston Cottage as a temporary home for 3 weeks, awaiting our move into our new build property. The cottage was ideal, very clean and well equipped with tasteful furnishings and great broadband, so I was able to work in lovely surroundings! A ten minute walk from Corbridge and all that goes on there - great pubs, shops, views and walks.
Susie and Edmund great hosts - very friendly, approachable and accommodating to any request we threw at them! Will definitely want to stay again.
