Location description from manager

The England region

The nearby town of Allendale is famous for a New Year celebration where lighted tar barrels are carried on the heads of revellers called guisers. This tradition dates back to 1858. It appears to have originated from the lighting of a silver band that were carolling at New Year. They were unable to use candles to light their music due to the strong winds, so someone suggested a tar barrel be used. Having to move from place to place, it would have been easiest to carry the barrels upon the guisers heads, rather than rolling them. There have been claims that it is a pagan festival, however, these claims are unfounded.

Hexham

Carrshield is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is situated in the Pennines approximately between Penrith and Hexham. It is a small village with an old school building situated in the centre of the village. The school was built in 1851 but is no longer a working school and is now three houses.

Carrshield is surrounded by beautiful fell ground and is littered with old disused mines. Remnants of the old stone works where the lead was mined are still able to be seen next to the river. There are no shops in Carrshield.

“Not so hot tub!”

Reviewed 3 May 2017

We had a lovely time here in a well stocked and clean cottage with amazing views. plenty of room for the 8 of us. The grill hut is brilliant and a great idea. We loved the rotating grill!! However big search points for us were a games room, open fire and hot tub. Although well stocked the games room could do with a little updating... a game of pool or darts wasn't really possible with the kit on offer - although the kids enjoyed it. The kindling supplied for the fire was damp and we couldn't get a fire/hot tub lit until day 2 after our trip out. It then become clear that although we had it 'luke warm' there was no chance of the hot tub heating up with the amount of wood supplied. A phone call on Saturday afternoon to 'Billy' the log man got us a delivery for Sunday afternoon - which was sadly too late but hopefully the next party got the benefit of our wood and a 'hot' tub!!! Just some points for improvement as if this was explained in advance we would have happily bought wood from Billy for arrival or brought our own!! Hope the cleaners enjoyed our jigsaws!!

Thank you for your review, and we are glad that you had a lovely time in the cottage. Apologies about the logs for the hot tub, this is something we will be looking into for future guests. Kind regards

We were fortunate enough to stay at Barney Crag during the recent snowfall and had a wonderful time. For a group of eight of us and two dogs there was ample space for all, with massive cupboards in the bedrooms and kitchen and three bathrooms! The property is situated near Carrshield (a row of houses with a post box and phone booth). The nearest larger settlements are Alston and Allendale. The former is a wonder setting, with cobbled streets and small unique shops, pubs and eateries. There is a petrol station there with a larger supermarket selling all your needs. Allendale is further north, and the perfect stop off en route to Hadrians Wall or Newcastle. It has the feel of a classic market town with Cooperative, cafes and chemist sitting in a beautiful square. Before leaving we had read reviews suggesting that reaching the property down the country road would be a challenge and may require a 4x4. However, even with snow and ice we managed to navigate two saloon cars and a SUV without much problem - although some attention is needed when driving over the potholes. There are a few bridleways leading from the property however these are advised to be taken with care and for dogs to be kept on the lead at all times as fields contain sheep. The house is well equipped with all the utensils and appliances needed to make it a home from home. The kitchen is equipped with oven and fridge etc. There is a boot room with adjacent toilet/walk in shower and laundry room. At the centre of the property is a dining room with sofa bed and television. This leads through to a spacious lounge with sky TV (no subscription), music player and dvd player. The lounge also leads to a games room with table football, board games, darts board, Xbox and pool table - suitable to entertain all ages. Upstairs contains a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (bath & shower head), a second bedroom with double bed, a bathroom with a wonderful bath and a family room with a double bed and two singles which can be divided into two rooms. There is no mobile phone signal but working WIFI and a payphone if you require to make a call. The garden is large, with fences around the entire property to keep in dogs and children. There is a hot tub powered by wood burner and a cosy grill room/outhouse. Despite being a large property and the wintery conditions outside it was never cold, the heating was adjustable and the multi burner in the lounge held its heat all night. Despite all the baths there was always plenty of hot water for us all. Overall this is a wonderful property, which could not be recommended more for anyone wishing to take a break away with family and friends.

Thank you for your review Ewan! We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Barney Crag and we hope to have you and your family to come and stay with us again soon!

Stayed here over the Halloween weekend with a group of friends for a 21st birthday. The cottage was fab, perfect for a group of 10 people and very spacious and functional. The location itself was also stunning with 360 views of the scenery, it is quite far out to the nearest town and you have to take a car to get there but we did not need to. The bbq house was excellent for the cold weather, and although we initially gave up on the hot tub after about 6 hours of maintaining the fire it was perfect and we even got it to heat up on the Sunday despite leaving it to burn out on the Saturday night. I would definitely recommend anyone to come here for a break away and have a walk around, the stars on the first night were unbelievable!

Thank you for your review. We're glad that you had a lovely stay and everyone enjoyed themselves!
