We were very happy with the cottage. Very friendly owners and good communication, which is allways a good start. The location is not only very well suited for walks, but also quite central for visits to Durham, Hadrian's Wall, Hexham and the superb area of the moors. Even with the rather extreme wet weather, we had a very good week.Recommended cottage without any hesitation!

After travelling up from Southampton, Hampshire, we arrived at 10.15pm on a wet November evening, weariness faded upon opening the door to Englewood, as reality was better than Sykes description. The kitchen is well equipped and a dinner party would be easy as there is plenty of cutlery crockery and serving dishes.
The next morning we woke to the beautiful view from both back and front bedrooms, and the garden is delightful with a bubbling stream on the other side of the garden. Misty our dog loved it, would have loved to have a swim even more, but not suitable for that as stream flows over rocks.
The open fire in the lounge made evenings so warm and cosy and the furniture is very comfortable and easily seats 6. Lots of literature gave us ideas for places to visit.
The bed was the best we'd ever staying in, I have chronic back problems and dread new beds, I had perfect nights sleep from day one thank you.
We loved the paintings by the owner around the cottage, wanted to sneak a couple home with us!

my Parner and I stayed at Englewooed Cottage in November 2010, from the moment we arrived we felt at home, every little detail had been catered for, from the well equipt Kitchen to the fully stacked bookshelves. The weather was bitterly cold outside but the cottage had excellent heating and a lovely wood burning fireplace which made ethe evenings so much more cosier, would definately stay here again and recommend to everyone.

We spent three wonderful weeks in Englewood Cottage. Very well equipped and well-kept house. Clean, friendly, quiet place with many possibilities for short and long trips. We had seen many places in this beautiful countryside: Hadrians Wall, castles, High and Low Forces, Lake District, Stone Circles, Galloway Mountains, St. Mary Lighthouse, Edinburgh, Gretna Green, steam engine in alston. The cottage is a lovely accommodation. We and our kids love this place!

Second time of visiting; this time with my friend and her dog.I visited last May with my husband.
We all had a lovely break and would definitely return.
Only the extremely cold and wet weather affected our planned visits, but a cosy retreat awaited us.
