    It is a really lovely house in a delightful secret garden and we had a wonderful family holiday despite the fact that it was the wettest week of August. We had a bad journey getting there because roads were flooded and we were turned back twice by police and Highways Agency patrols. Bad luck. The members of the family who came from the west on the A68 were luckier. The countryside around is stunning. The drawback is that it takes an hour's driving to reach anywhere for the children: Alnwick Castle, Beamish Open Air Museum, Vindalanda Roman Museum, Hexham Abbey and Cragside National Trust. The coast is a little further again. And you had to be highly organised with the catering - menus and shopping ahead. Sainsbury's delivered our on line order on Sunday which was great.The owner was very welcoming and if you love a secluded country holiday surrounded by scenic splendour this is a perfect place.

    We had a lovely week in this beautiful old building that’s full of character and comfort! Shops and restaurants etc are a drive away but located on a good main road. Would recommend this to larger family’s and groups looking for space and beautiful quiet location.

    We all enjoyed our holiday in Northumberland. Our host was very friendly, the house was spotlessly clean and tidy, lots of kitchen equipment and an excellent location in Kielder Forest - ideal for walks and would have been ideal for star-gazing had the cloud ever cleared! I ticked 9/10 for local amenities because this depends on what you want. It is in a very rural area but there are restaurants and a small local shop only a short drive away. We had to travel further for a large supermarket and for fuel. But if you are prepared for this it is fine and would not be the peaceful rural location it is if there were too many amenities nearby. A very large house with character (the photos don't show how big the rooms are) making it excellent for large groups, but it is a little 'tired'.

    Was a fantastic cottage to get away to for all 10 of us and dog. Garden enclosed which was great and he met the owners dogs which he loved. Was ideal just to get away with family for a much needed break. Lovely welcome pack and lovely rooms. Thank you. Plenty of walking routes nearby which we didn't do this time as just needed to chill

    Three generations of our family [aged 1-64] went to Byrness for New Year and had a fantastic time. It has a lovely, slightly faded elegence. The kitchen is the best I have ever had in self-catering - a huge gas & electric range, 2 sinks, 2 fridges and a full sized freezer, lots of cupboard place and, wonder of wonders, really sharp knives. Of course the kitchen needs to be good as you will do a lot of cooking ..........there is nowhere close enough to walk to for a meal! There's a wonderful kitchen table that seats eight easily and in the dining room a huge table that fits 12-14 [and there's enough cutlery and crockery for that number. The sitting room is large with three big old sofas and a huge TV/DVD/Freenet. There are stereos in both rooms. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms. Because of water pressure issues there is a knack to how to use the showers and you can't use all three at the same time [or if the washing machine is running]. Also is you are having a shower it takes ages for the cisterns to refill for a flush. The same is true for the heating system as it seemed at first that the house was always too hot. However, with the help of Kate the owner we got it sorted. The other thing was that, because of the thickness of the walls the wi-fi was very unreliable. These are all problems of old buildings, heating systems and water pressure - there isn't anything actually wrong with any of the things [but it is wise to know about it in advance] There's lots of parking, a nice garden with beautiful views across Redesdale, easy access to great scenery and you are within 100 metres of the Pennine Way. Also you can walk up the hillside behind the house into lovely woodland. The owners live in the adjoining property, They are friendly and helpful but never intrusive. This property isn't for everyone. If you want up to the minute luxury with jacuzzi, steam room, streamed Netflix this isn't for you. However if you want a place with bags of space a character and a great kitchen this is the place for you

    Fantastic! A lovely reunion of 10 friends was supported by this cosy home, that used to be a hotel. All of the rooms were clean and well decorated and the dining room was great to have a meal together and play party games. With our puppy able to join in the fun too (and towels left out for him to dry off when he came in) we were delighted with it. Tesco delivered all the food needed which is a great idea as not many large supermarkets nearby and saved us the effort of bringing it all with us! Thanks Kate and Peter and we look forward to seeing you again.. x
