“The best ever” We've stayed in many self-catering places over the past 35 years and this was the lovliest by a long shot! Built in 1763, quaint, walls as thick as a fortress, roses up the walls, low doors, squeaky stairs, the works. There were wonderful rambling walks from the front door and Richard the owner was a delight to deal with. The only downside was that we couldn't stay and make it our permanent home!
We spent 2 days here. Lovely, warm and cosy cottage. Suited us and our two boys (5y and 8y). All needs catered for. Friendly owners who were around but respected our privacy. Surroundings stunning. Lots to do in local area! Would recommend as we have stayed in cottages all over the Uk. …
We stayed in this amazing cottage during the latest snow storm; the beast from the East. The village of Eals is only a few houses down a lane so if you're looking for remote and a getting away from it all setting; this is the place for you. We got snowed in for 5 days which of course wasn't ideal but the owner was very kind and made sure we were ok. We had plenty of firewood for the wood burner in the living room and the underfloor heating in the kitchen was amazing.
There are plenty of books, games and dvds to keep you occupied if you have to stay indoors but ideally you want to explore the valley with the river 10 minutes walk away and lots of Hadrian's wall sights close by. …
We booked to stay for my friends hen do, there was 8 of us and as soon as we walked in we were so happy with the property. Christine and Paul who own the cottage are very helpful and welcoming. Christine knew that it was a hen do and provided chocolates and a bottle of bubbles to help our celebrations.
We had a great night and those that stayed really enjoyed it. because of the occasion, Christine also allowed us a slightly later check out which I think was appreciated by those who stayed overnight. …
