Interaction with guest

We will welcome you on arrival and are just next door if you need us. As we live locally we can recommend walks, places to eat and things to do. Next door are pet pigs, sheep, ducks and hens. We also have hens behind the cottage so you may be able to buy fresh eggs from us depending on the season. We can be as unobtrusive or as helpful as you wish.

Very Good

“Lovely eco and family friendly cottage in beautiful location”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2017

This cosy cottage is located on the door step of great walks, quiet and fantastic for night time watching of the stars. Close to amenities in Garrigill (pub, post office, private pool!) and Alston and next door to the lovely owners. Excursions from here were to Ashgill Force (walk direct from house), as well as towards Hexham/Hadrian's Wall and towards Penrith and the foothills to the Pennines there. The view on a clear day from Hartside Summit is something else! We could easily have stayed another week. Many thanks for having us.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review. We would love to welcome you back again.

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2013

The house was in a nice location with very nice views. It was very comfortable and cosy, it had everything you needed. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The house was very clean and three bathrooms was a bonus with the two of us and our four children. We really enjoyed our stay and the weather was brilliant. We would certainly recommend the house.

“It's like being spoon fed relaxation!”

Where do I start! Well firstly I CANNOT fault a single thing about this holiday. The owner Judith is an absolute delight, and I miss her home made cookies! The cottage itself could not be any more perfect. It has everything you would expect in your own home and MORE! In fact it's better than home and I'd jump at the chance to buy this place if I could. The views are breathtaking, as are the walks from the cottage itself. I liked to go for a wander to the local pub, have a drink, a meal, few games of pool. The lady owner there was lovely and friendly too, just like chatting to some dear friends. I'd strongly recommend St. Johns Pool (not sure I got the name right), as you can hire it for SOLE use!!! Yep, SOLE use! Myself and my partner did so for a couple of hours and it was lovely. I'm 32 and just loved the tranquility of the place, and the little villages a short drive away. I baked cakes whilst I was here, and embellished in some arts & crafts. On our last day we were literally snowed in and couldn't get my car up the steep road that exits from the cottage as we kept rolling back on the ice. Judith and her husband had a powerful range rover and very kindly drove off to buy some suitable rope to tow us out..... I'm amazed at their kindness and generosity! Judith even offered to let us stay an extra night or 2 for free if we couldn't get out.... I SO wished the rope had snapped! We were even told of how to book the cottage through a cheaper option! VERY VERY happy!!!!! Judith, I'll definately be back (although not with my ex!!!)

“A (better!) home from home!”

Reviewed 14 May 2013

We stayed in the cottage for a long weekend and we were bowled over by how clean, fresh and modern it is. The warm welcome from the owner even included homemade biscuits and fresh eggs from the hens in the garden! The kitchen was well equipt and the open plan living and several bathrooms were ideal for us as a young family. We had a wonderful trip to High Force waterfall and we were perfectly positioned to watch the village fireworks display from the patio. Bonus! The roaring fire in the lounge was very welcome during our November stay, but we will definitely be back over the summer to experience the picturesque setting in the sunshine! Highly recommended! Can't fault it.

“Excellent Accommodation with amazing views”

Reviewed 5 May 2013

The accommodation is first class, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. On arrival there were home made cookies, tea and coffee and free range eggs which were much appreciated. The owners are very friendly and approachable if you have any concerns. Our dog was fascinated with the chickens in the garden and practically lived by the patio doors for the first day. We will definitely return to this cottage, and couldn't have found a better place to stay.

“First class accommodation in a great area.”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2013

We have now stayed here twice and have already booked for 2014. Spotless and high quality accommodation in a wonderful location with very friendly but unobtrusive hosts.
