“Excellent location”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well designed and maitained cottage. Close to the A1 . We had our border terrier with us . Thoughtful additions such as poo bags , spare lead and food bowls showed how welcome we were made. Excellent welcome package. Weather was never good enough to use the patio unfortunatly.

“Best holiday cottage”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage was immaculate and well thought out. A lot of time has been given to making our stay as comfortable as possible. Central heating in June was very much needed, as the weather has not been great. Excellent welcome package. Dog friendly. An ideal location for exploring Northumbria.

“A fantastic cottage in West Thirston, Northumberland”
Reviewed 24 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stop procrastinating and just book this wonderful cottage - you will not be disappointed! From the welcome basket of goodies to a blissfully comfortable bed - everything had been considered and provided. The village is in a central location - close enough to the A1 to make pretty much everything accessible but quiet enough to feel tranquil. The setting is just beautiful alongside the river and there is a small store, art and craft gallery, great pub and artisan bakery within a 1 minute walk. Northumberland is jam packed with stunning scenery and friendly, well kept towns and villages - what a county! Hope to be back up there soon and would have no hesitation in staying at this cottage again. Thank you for a memorable and much needed holiday.
