Book now before it is too late

We stayed in Gate Lodge for the second time the first two weeks in July 2018 and as usual everything was perfection. It was interesting to us to see that every time we come there are new things added to the cottage, this time a wonderful garden hot tub which was a balm after a busy day of walking. A bathroom scale has also been thoughtfully added, although I carefully stayed away from it. This is a self-catering cottage that feels like a five-star hotel, a wonderful combination, as Graham and Trysha are always around, and there is also a system for contacting them either by house telephone or by leaving a note in the visitors' center. Your hosts will respond immediately. I also need to say that we have been all over Northumberland and this is easily the most beautiful part of the area-hauntingly beautiful. The cottages book up fast so give it a try. Worth every penny.

Barley Mill 5 star dog friendly accommodation.

We had a fantastic week at Barley Mill. The accommodation was so comfortable and absolutely spotless. Although we had our dog with us we were slightly worried as the house was pet friendly it might be a little scruffy ,but you would never know any animals had been in the property.The bedrooms were very airy and the bed in the master bedroom was so comfy.The welcome from Graham and Trysha was lovely, they were both very approachable and friendly. We were able to store our bikes securely and the surrounding area was great for mountain biking,walking and body boarding at Bamburgh beach. The fresh homemade pizzas were amazing as was the complimentary home baking that arrived with them.Next time as we will return we will definitely get one of Trysha’s cakes!

Another amazing visit

All I can say is amazing, amazing, amazing! Our second visit to Cheviot Holiday Cottages this time to the Gate House. Absolute luxury We had such a lovely time. Trysha’s welcome casserole was delicious, the hot tub such a treat and the surrounding area stunning. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

An enjoyable stay in a lovely part of the world.

We stayed in the Stables Cottage and had a wonderful time. Graham and Trysha have thought of everything to make it a comfortable place to stay. They have other more luxurious cottages and we hope to try them as we would love to return to that area. We were so lucky with the weather and sat outside to eat most evenings. We travelled around a lot too as there are so many great places to visit. The Farne Islands being one of our favourites. The beaches in Northumberland are deserted and beautiful. Graham and Trysha do a pizza night and we had a wonderful meal cooked in their pizza oven by Trysha and brought to us by Graham on a huge wooden board with fresh parmesan and basil. A lovely end to one of the many perfect days we spent in Northumberland.

First class holiday at The Retreat

aebreck, North East England
Having stayed at Cheviot Holiday Cottages 4 years ago for our anniversary we had no hesitation in choosing it to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary this year. We had originally wished to book The Gate, as that was where we had stayed previously, but it was already booked so we opted for The Retreat instead as Graham had shown us around it 4 years ago and we had been very impressed. On arrival everything was just as we remembered it and, after being shown how to use all the pool functions, we settled in to the comfortable surroundings and enjoyed the hot soup and warm bread waiting for us. The Retreat is well-laid out and has everything you could possibly need for a few luxurious days in the gorgeous countryside. We enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen on a couple of nights and made use of the bread maker to make another loaf of delicious bread with the free bread mix that had been left for us to use, (I was so proud of my beautiful loaf!). On the Tuesday night we had pre-ordered Trysha's pizzas and triple cooked chips and these were delivered by Graham piping hot to our door on an enormous platter. Hubby and I agree that the pizzas and chips were absolutely gorgeous, you could taste that they were home-made with fresh ingredients and we ate every last crumb - delicious!! The lounge, on the upstairs mezzanine level, was very comfortable with a beautiful view of the garden and hill beyond. Hubby and I nodded off on more than on occassion while relaxing on the comfortable settee with a cup of tea. The bedroom was also large and airy with plenty of storage space and the bed was huge and so comfortable that hubby was reluctant to get out of bed in the morning and he is not normally one for lie-ins! The pool was delightful and was used every day to relax or cool down (although it was a toasty 34 degrees). We enjoyed trying out the various functions so we could relax in the jacuzzi corners, swim against the current for some exercise or get splashed by the fountain sprays. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio on most days with a cup of tea or glass of wine and taking in the great views of the garden and surrounding countryside. Listening to the birds twittering in the trees and watching little bunny rabbits nibbling on the grass was really idyllic and so peaceful - you could actually feel the stress leaving your body! My favourite thing about The Retreat was the House Martins which had built a nest right outside the bathroom window. As part of the nest was against the window we had a fantastic view of the inside of the nest from the bathroom - it was like having our very own Springwatch webcam from the comfort of the bath! I checked on the little chicks (I think there were about 4 or 5) several times a day and always found it endearing when the Mum or Dad House Martin would arrive at the nest with some food and the little chicks would all open their bright yellow beaks and start squeaking! By the time we left The Retreat the chicks had opened their eyes but still had little stubby feathers so weren't ready to fledge yet - I do hope they all fledge successfully in the coming weeks. Away from the cottage we visited Alnwick, hiked to Linhope Spout and used the provided bicycles for a lovely cycle along the river - we really were fortunate to have the most beautiful weather! The Ingram Cafe - just a stone's throw from the cottage is also worth a visit as they serve delicious home made food and a selection of hot and cold drinks which we enjoyed after our hot hike! All in all another amazing and relaxing stay at Cheviot Cottages, it went over far too fast and the only solution is that we will have to return. Thank you Graham and Trysha for a wonderful holiday.
