Great location, great hosts, perfect in everyway. Arrived to a warm welcome; followed by a guided tour of cottage, and even had an afternoon tea of sandwiches, cream scones and wine awaiting us after the long journey. Even our dog was allowed to join us. The cottage has everything you could possibly need. Such a tranquil retreat, I would highly recommend this to anybody who is looking for a bit of a break. Would definitely visit again.

"The ideal place to be comfortable away from it all"
Remote and peaceful, located above the small village of Rochester and well placed for seeing this beautiful part of Northumberland. Kielder Water is not far away. The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need. An ideal place in which to relax far away from the madding crown. The owners gave us a warm welcome, and made us feel very much at home. The only problem was that Northumberland Cottages did not send an email with travel directions and details about email access, but the owners came to rescue on the day of our arrival.
