Space, furnishings and equipment all first class and all facilities well maintained. Although only a 20 minute walk from the village (and excellent pub!) the cottage felt very secluded. Fantastic 'dark sky' star gazing, lots of interesting country roads to drive around locally. Hexham, the nearest town, is really nice with interesting historical sites and all the facilities - including swimming pool - that you might need. The drive to Hexham, on a winding road, takes about 30 minutes. Speaking of driving, park and ride for Durham. Car parking in the city is a nightmare! Beamish definitely worth a visit although its expensive so make a day of it.

Very clean with every possible consideration given to guests, very clean bedding and wonderfully thick towels. TV and DVD player, music if required. Extremely well stocked kitchen with full range of crockery, cutlery and utensils. Two showers and lovely appointed bathrooms and bedrooms. Lovely cosy lounge. Beautiful peaceful surroundings. You offer a first class service with attention to detail.
