I can't write highly enough about The Coach House. It had every detail we could have wanted...and we stress tested them all! We cooked, did laundry, used the sound system, watched DVDs, had baths and showers. Everything works! All the details are lovely; drying rack, good pots and pans, coffee grinder. If we needed something Graham was on it. The cottages are in a great location with many walks on the doorstep. The river is round the corner, as is a cafe, a sweet church and a postbox! The icing in the cake is their guest welcome area with so much info on things to do, copies of hikes near and far, a large library of DVDs to borrow. A week was not enough with so many places to visit and walks to try.

Super stay

We have just spent a lovely week in Honeysuckle Cottage, our second visit to Cheviot Holiday Cottages. The cottage was extremely comfortable and homely. We have loved our stay and, as we are keen birders and photographers, we were delighted to see the wealth of bird life in the Ingram Valley. Willow warblers, Chiff Chaffs, Dippers, Yellowhammers, were some of the treats the valley had in store! We will most definitely return.

The Retreat - didn't want to leave!!

We stayed 4 nights at The Retreat, it's a gorgeous cottage with a high spec finish throughout. Walking through the door to the hot soup and bread was just a perfect beginning to the week and after a long drive, so appreciated. We also took advantage of the chicken and lemon casserole which was absolutely lovely. Everything has been thought out so carefully and all the finishing touches add to the luxury feeling. The swim spa is amazing and so relaxing at the end of the day. The bed in the Retreat is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and it was a struggle to get out every morning, we've talked about it so much I've had to email Graham and Trysha for the details of the mattress so we can try to recreate the luxury experience!!

Instant relaxation

We stayed here for 4 nights in January and loved it so much, we returned in March. Cheviot cottages are beautifully maintained properties in a stunning landscape, you feel instantly relaxed and in a little 'bubble' of tranquility while you are there. Graham and Trysha have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and stress-free and really are the perfect hosts, thank you. We arrived to a warm fire, piped music, the smell of fresh bread combined with the pre-ordered lamb baltic simmering away in the slow-cooker. The walks from the front door and a little further afield offer tremendous views of the Cheviots and out towards the Northumberland Coast when you get high enough! Aching limbs can be soothed in the hot-tub on return, with a glass of bubbly and a little star-gazing. Alnwick and Wooler are the closest towns if you do want to leave for the day. We also tried Trysha's home-made pizzas which were delicious. We don't normally return to holiday cottages but I am dreaming of a third visit already.

Perfect little sanctuary

My partner booked Dovecote for our 4 night stay. The cottage was beautiful; extremely comfy bed and a fantastic hydrotherapy bath. Everything was immaculate and we were delighted to arrive to a roaring log fire and warm, fresh bread in the kitchen. The location is stunning and very peaceful. We look forward to returning soon.
