Lovely quiet cottage in beautiful location. Cottage very small but comfortable with very steep stairs to the bedroom. Owner very helpful. Good location for visiting the area. Second time using your cottages and would book with you again.

The host was very friendly and welcoming. We found the cottage just what we hoped for. It was very comfortable and cosy. Decorated to a very high standard through out and very clean. And it was in a beautiful location. Very clean, well equipped and everything finished to a very high standard.

The cottage was beautifully clean, well stocked and good linen and towels. We stayed at Quarry Cottage for two nights to visit Belsay Horse Trials. We ate at the Manor House Inn and the Punch Bowl and can highly recommend both.

A great cottage, we were worried as North east weather was unpredictable but cottage was cosy and the roaring fire was homely. We have had a lovely weekend -made better by the beautiful surroundings! We will be back.

A gorgeous little cottage. We love the location with nature right on the doorstep. Everything we needed was here. The owner is friendly and gave us some good local tips. In a long list of places to visit, we can't recommend enough a boat trip to The Farne Islands - so many puffins!

Reviewed by Andrew And Jen

Great for a cycling weekend. Excellent bike store- we even managed some hills on the bikes. Really comfortable cottage. The owner is an excellent host and we can also recommend The manor House Inn food and the Knitsley farm shop.

I can't tell you how pleased we were with this cottage. It has been a fantastic base for our short Easter stay. Finding the nearby Tesco on the outskirts of Consett was really helpful - got wine supplies and the Italian in Shotley Bridge was great on the first night.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
