Enjoyed a lovely, relaxing week in this pretty cottage. It was well equipped with everything needed for the week, including some starter fuel for the fire It had snowed before arrival and the cottage and surroundings looked very picturesque. The master bedroom is a great size, with a wonderful four poster bed, which was very comfortable. The night storage heaters were effective in keeping the cottage warm and in the evenings we lit the open fire, which was great fun and gently infused everything with the wonderful smell of wood smoke. A short walk (a mile) from the cottage there is the Hemmel Cafe and the Allenheads Inn - both very welcoming, with fires roaring and worth more than one visit. Take a torch if heading out after dusk, particularly as you'll be walking mostly in the road. A drive in the other direction takes you to Allenheads, which has shops, cafes and a few pubs. We enjoyed a couple of great meals in the Golden Lion. Everyone we came across was friendly. It's a happy place, it did me the world of good and I'll be back :)

“Lovely cosy cottage in which to get away from modern life.”

Stayed at Englewood cottage in June 2015. Had a really lovely relaxing week. The cottage is clean and cosy with an nice décor. On arrival we found the cottage to be clean and well kept and has everything you need. However you are expected to take your own be linen, towels and tea towels which did not worry us but may put some people off. Cottage is pet friendly and our small terrier loved the area and especially looking at all the rabbits in the field directly opposite the cottage. The rear garden is across a shared lane at the back and would be nice on a warm day, however the weather was not kind during our stay and we did not have the chance to use it. The garden runs down to the River Allen. Fishing permits to fly fish the river at various stretches including the area behind the cottage and through the village, can be purchased at the post office in Allendale village, £10 per day or £40 for the week. The river is a great wild fishing venue for small brown trout and a good place to hone your fly fishing skills (Something the owners might want to advertise a bit more).
The location is ideal to explore Northumberland and Durham.
Bathroom only had a shower attachment on the bath and the electric heating system meant after a single bath the tank had to be boosted if someone else wanted a second bath.
Only real point to be aware of is the total lack of mobile phone coverage ( for O2 anyway).
So if you are looking to totally get away from modern life this is the place to be.

“Another Fantastic Stay”

This was our second visit to Englewood Cottage and the fact that we have returned for another fantastic week of relaxation speaks for its self. Once again everything that we could possibly have wanted was catered for in the cottage, sometimes its good to escape from the day to day pressures and we have found our bit of heaven here in Allenheads at Englewood Cottage. Its very obvious from the moment you walk through the door that the owners take a great personal pride in ensuring the cottage has a very welcoming feel about it, for us it was like our little home away from home will most definitely be returning for our next spell of R & R. We arrived at Newcastle Airport on this trip and drive was around an hour in all and the location is very easy to find. thanks again ViV and Mac for the chance to recharge our batteries in preparation for Xmas.
