Gate Lodge

rodandjane2, Suffolk, United Kingdom
All of the superlatives have already been used. We can but add our endorsement of these. Trysha and Graham are excellent hosts. Even the Nuthatches perform to order. If you fill the bird feeder with peanuts the Nuthatches arrive and once they have eaten their fill they hide the peanuts in between the paving slabs and proceed to cover their bounty with moss. Attention to detail is the order of the day at Cheviot Cottages.

Luxury cottage in quiet location

julieharrand, Selby, United Kingdom
If you are looking for a luxury cottage then look no further. We were welcomed by Graham who showed us to Dovecote cottage. There was a homemade loaf of bread and starter pack of every day needs including milk, honey, coffee and tea bags, dish cloth, scourer, cleaning equipment and dishwasher/washer tablets. All of the crockery, kitchen equipment and appliances are top quality. The information lounge on site is a great idea. We stored our bikes securely onsite too although there are bikes for hire. We didn't need the log burner but imagine it would be lovely during colder spells. The jacuzzi bath in Dovecote is a lovely addition especially after a long walk or bike ride in the Breamish valley . We tried several of the recommended eateries that were in the information lounge booklet. To be honest most of the pubs serve fabulous food with locally sourced ingredients. They are also dog friendly in the bar areas if you need this. We also had home made pizza cooked by Trysha and delivered by Graham which was a nice touch. We had an issue with the smoke alarm but as Graham had explained if we had any problems do not hesitate to ask. He sorted this out after a couple of visits and was very apologetic. We visited Alnwick castle and gardens which is only 20 minutes away by car. The whole if the Northumberland coast is just beautiful and we will definitely be returning to see more. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Such a peaceful location.

Perfect dog friendly holiday

sarah s,
We have just returned from a week in Barley Mill cottage and are pleased to say it was the perfect holiday location for us and our dog. It was one of the best equipped cottages we have stayed in, Graham and Trysha have obviously put a huge amount of thought and care into the cottages and it definitely shows. They were great hosts, very approachable and we especially enjoyed the pizzas! The setting is stunning and it is lovely having walks straight from the door so we don't need to use the car every day. The cottage was ideally placed for exploring on our first trip to Northumberland and the information provided on dog-friendly places to visit really helped, there really is such a huge choice that there is no need to leave the dog behind at all. We are already planning a return visit next year, thank you to Graham and Trysha for a wonderful stay.

Talking about dogs

LilyandDudley, Cheshire, United Kingdom
We have just returned from a heavenly week in our favourite holiday home from home, Stables Cottage. Perfectly located for exploring our adored Northumberland, especially charging around the amazing beaches, rock pooling, swimming and chasing a tennis ball. After an exhausting day the cottages are perfect to relax in front of the log fire and if we're lucky get a taste of one of Trysha’s famous pizzas. The garden is ideal for a little more play at the end of the day (us Springers have endless energy you know). Wonderfully equipped and beautifully decorated we would recommend these cottages to anyone, especially for those who enjoy their holiday with their owners. Trysha and Graham are perfect hosts and (note to mums) we will definitely be returning for our 9th visit next year!

Dovecott cottage. Peaceful week

pamgretton, Seaton Carew, United Kingdom
Beautiful cottage fitted out to a very high standard the jacuzzi bath was wonderful after a long trek or a bike ride. Graham and Trysha were very welcoming and helpful. We had a lovely slow cooked meal ready for us when we wanted to eat on arrival, and sampled the lamb tagine freezer meal as well both were delicious and saved thinking about what to prepare in the evening .Pizza night was also not to be missed. Perfect location to explore the surrounding area. Great walks and plenty of quiet lanes to cycle along with a sustrans cycle trail and mountain bike trail right on the door step. We were lucky In the main with the weather and the cottage lent itself to rest and relaxation. Not far from Cragside House, Alnwick and the Northumberland coast as well. definitely deserves its 5 stars and a return visit.
