“Fantastic week - highly recommended”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a fantastic week in this exceptional barn conversion which was fitted to the highest standards by the helpful and caring owners. Nothing was too much trouble, and when the smallest of our three dogs managed to squeeze through the wire fence into the sheep field they came at once to add additional fencing so that we would not have to keep her on a lead. The dogs loved watching the sheep - it was like having their own 3D TV! The beautiful weather meant that we could sit out for breakast as well as in the evening, taking advantage of the parasol with lights. Lovely showers and everything was provided, even down to luxury body lotion. We look forward to a return visit. Many thanks to Ang and Geoff.

“Perfect cottage for a family holiday”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

We were made very welcome during our stay in the cottage. The kitchen had everything we needed and the cottage is beautiful. The garden is safe for young children as it is completely enclosed and even the oil tank, shed and washing line are tucked away behind a locked gate. We'd thoroughly recommend staying here as we had a very relaxing holiday.

“Return visit, already booked next years!”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our second visit, equally as nice as last year, if not better as it really felt like home, with ultimate luxury! Everything you might need is provided, and the rooms and furnishings are superb. Lovely garden with patio area, backing onto open fields. Everywhere is so clean, and nothing is too much trouble for the owner Ang, who is keen to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. 3 folders of information leaflets of places to go are provided, one for walking, and the other two with a range of places to visit. Another folder is provided with information about the cottage, and manuals etc if needed for the electrical goods. Off road parking with gated private parking area to the side. All in all, cannot fault the cottage, and highly recommend it. Have already booked for next year!

“What a Gem”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a Gem this cottage and its hosts deserves top marks. I am not sure who enjoyed it the most us, or the dog? This dog friendly cottage has everything for a luxurious stay, even an outside shower for the dog.
The level of furnishings and the utensils are of the highest quality and the whole place is spotless, spacious and convenient for all the great sights of the North East.
Ang is a pleasure to talk to and is very keen to make sure you enjoy your stay , so nothing appears to be a trouble to her.
We are already looking at dates for next year.
