A lovely find indeed! The photos do not do this property justice. Every room was nicely decorated and well thought out. The kitchen had all you could want and more. Slept very well and relaxed just as well in the living room. Would highly recommend.

The cottage was exactly as described and we could not fault the accommodation. There was a welcome pack awaiting us when we arrived which was really appreciated.There were plenty of nearby walks to exercise our dog and definitely dog friendly. We enjoyed ourselves so much we intend to return for another couple of weeks in 2014 as we have family nearby and it enables us to take a break and also fit in the family visits. There are many places to visit and these are well known to us.
Brilliant retreat away from the hussle

Very clean and tidy cottage that was comfortable and well equipped. It is probably as far from civilisation as you can manage in England. Pitch black nights and wonderful walks. It is also a great location to explore the wonderful North East.
