“Warm, clean, cosy and Kate, the owner, was very helpful!”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed for three nights on a bright and not too cold January weekend. The cottage is lovely. I could've quite happily stayed there the entire weekend, cooking and enjoying the fireplace with a good book. The area is truly wonderful, with some cracking views and pubs serving great local dishes and meats.

The beds are comfy and neither couple felt hard done by with the room allocation as both were nice and spacious. I just wish I could've stayed a little longer to properly explore!

After a long 5 hour drive from Bristol, over hills, through valleys and winding roads in thick fog, it was lovely to be greeted by Kate (the owner) who had just lit the fire for us, and had left some freshly baked cheese scones.
The Hemmel, is beautifully decorated and very comfortable, and our dachshund loved being able to run from room to room without having to conquer stairs. Stunning local scenery and plenty of places to visit. We enjoyed chilly walks in the fog, and cosy evenings by the fire.
The only downside, having to leave to head back to the hustle and bustle of life.
I would definitely recommend the Hemmel and plan to visit again one day.

“Brilliant accommodation, fantastic hosts.”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Having stayed in a lot of self-catering accommodations all over the UK, the Hemmel is right up there! Kate has thought of everything! The beds were very comfortable, kitchen had all the amenities you'd need, loved the big shower and above all, it was very clean. Kate made us feel very welcome and her hot stone massage is to die for! Would definitely recommend the Hemmel!

The Hemmel is a home from home with amazing views. Modern, clean, fully equipped, fabulous location for us for a wedding, biking around Kielder, lovely local walks and family so it ticked all our boxes and much more. Kate the owner was amazing and even checked in on our four legged family member while we were at the wedding!!! Simply wonderful and would highly recommend - we will be back.

“Beautifully clean and well equipped, spacious cottage.”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed for a week in the Hemmel in mid May and although the weather was a bit on the cool side the cottage was a welcome retreat to return to each day. It was warm, spacious and very well equipped. Everything was spotlessly clean. Lovely comfy bed. The cheese scones on arrival were lovely (although my husband didn't realise this and nearly put jam on them )!

Would definitely recommend this beautiful cottage for couples or a family as the huge enclosed garden would be great for children to play in.

Would stay again without any hesitation should we visit Northumberland again.
