A wonderful relaxing week at The Gate Lodge

aebreck, North East England
Having enjoyed our stay at the The Retreat so much last year we couldn't wait to book up again for this year. The Retreat was already booked so we opted to return to The Gate Lodge where we had stayed 5 years ago, before the hot tub was installed, so that was something extra to look forward to on this occasion. We also decided to book for a week this time having decided that 4 days just wasn't long enough to spend at this wonderful place. We had a wonderful relaxing week, the weather was kind allowing us to enjoy sitting outside on the patio in the morning with a cup of tea after breakfast and on an evening with a glass of wine before dinner. Having stayed here before I was delighted to see the bird feeder was still hanging on the tree opposite the patio and soon after filling it with seed our feathered friends started to visit. There was a juvenile Chaffinch in particular that was particularly sociable and would even join us at the table to enjoy her sunflower seed snacks.On a couple of evenings we were lucky enough to see a hedgehog strolling by and also a red squirrel bounding down the road, although unfortunately the squirrel did not come to visit the bird feeder on this occasion. We made good use of the outdoor hot tub which was a cozy 38 degrees and very relaxing to lie in with the jets and bubbles gently easing away any aches and pains while we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. My favourite time of day to use the hot tub was late in the evening when we could lie in the hot tub watching the swallows and house martins swooping high above us looking like tiny spitfires engaged in an aerial dog fight. We also delighted to see tiny bats flying overhead as well, beautifully visible against the evening sky as they headed out on their nightly foray for food. We enjoyed walking along the river where we spotted Oystercatchers and pretty flowers before enjoying a sandwich and a cuppa at the Ingram Cafe - the food was delicious and the staff so friendly. I also made use of the bicycles provided to go for a lovely evening ride out to Bulby's Wood, where I took some lovely photos of the sunset and met some friendly cows at the farm. Wednesday night was pizza night and having sampled Trysha's delicious pizza's before we looked forward to it all day. As it was also our wedding anniversary it meant we didn't have to cook or even leave the cottage as Graham delivered them piping hot to the door. We thoroughly enjoyed the pizzas and the triple cooked chips, washed down with a bottle of fizz - we haven't tasted better pizzas anywhere and we highly recommend them. We had days out to Holy Island, Bamburgh, Alnwick and Wooler which were all wonderful places and took us through some beautiful countryside and villages on the way there. However it was always lovely to return back to The Gate Lodge at the end of the day and relax in the comfort of our home from home. Thank you Graham and Trysha for another wonderful holiday and we are sure we will see you again in the future as we love your cottages so much,

Excellent cottage and hosts (Barley Mill)

gill75ian, London, United Kingdom
We are a family of 5 plus 2 dogs who stayed in Barley Mill in July. Upon arrival our keys and instructions were waiting and we made our way round to Barley Mill which is set in a small courtyard of cottages just next to the rectory. Fresh bread and a spotlessly clean cottage awaited which comfortably slept our party of 5 (although does sleep 6 people). There is a lovely garden shaded by large trees where our dogs could roam and this was enclosed so the dogs were safe and had a gate which led to a lane, perfect for walks. The garden had outdoor dining which we used every day due to some great weather and a red squirrel who visited daily. Graham and Trysha had thoughtfully left us information for dog friendly local restaurants which was great. In general we found the entire area to be dog friendly on the beaches and restaurants and we didn’t have a single issue with taking the dogs on this holiday. In fact we commented that the area was much more dog friendly than our home area. Inside the cottage was a large kitchen with dining table and everything we needed for the week including dishwasher and washing machine. We used the bread maker several times and enjoyed the fresh loaf every day. The property also had a lounge and additional snug area and downstairs wc. Upstairs were 3 bedrooms, one with new en-suite wet room and lovely family bathroom with jacuzzi style bath. Everything worked perfectly including the WiFi and there was always hot water for baths and showers. The rectory was a short walk across the lawn to the main house where there is a visitors lounge which was really handy, we borrowed board games and dvds and the lounge was well stocked with leaflets for local attractions and things to do and map routes for local walks. Special mention to Trysha for the delicious pizzas that were provided during our stay. Graham and Trysha have a pizza oven and we can highly recommend the pizzas which were most welcome after a day out exploring. There is lots to do in this area and we visited Lindisfarne, went on a dog friendly boat tour of the Farne islands, visited Cragside National Trust property, went canoeing on the river Warkworth and visited the lovely beach there, spent the day in Seahouses and did an ‘escape room’ in Newcastle as well as a family hike to Linhope Spout which is a walk close to the cottages. There is lots more we could have done but we ran out of time. Coming home at the end of a days exploring to Barley Mill was just like coming home. Comfortable, quiet and we would definitely visit again. Thanks Graham and Trysha for a lovely stay.

Coach house

DavidA200, Nottingham, United Kingdom
I’ve put the name of the cottage as this is the only one I can comment on. Our arrival was good and at the reception we found our welcome letter. Added to this there were clear and helpful guidance within the cottage plus handbooks for all appliances. This last is very helpful as many have different controls etc so it is good to be able to work them without guess work. We had ordered a meal for the evening of our arrival (the veggie curry) and it was gently cooking in the slow cooker in our kitchen. With it was rice and other accompaniments with clear timings and instructions. This we found great as the cottage is some way from any pub/restaurant etc and means you can settle in without having to think about food. It was a substantial meal and very tasty. The Coach house is in the main courtyard which has electric gates but these generally operated automatically and when not there was a code so you could operate them. In the main house is guest lounge . This is on the first floor and was a flat but is now for guest use. The lounge has lots of books, videos plus guide books and photocopied sheets with many walks around the area. Across the corridor is a kitchen which is where you can order pizzas freshly cooked in wood oven. You write which you want and what time and they are delivered to your door. When we were there. It was the Tuesday and both our pizzas were lovely. There is also bread mixes which you can buy to make your own bread. Getting away from food the Coach house is mostly ground floor with a mezzanine bedroom above the lounge. The ground floor is the entrance with the bathroom with an electric shower above the bath. Next is the kitchen which is well equipped with all you’d need plus milk in the fridge and a freshly made loaf made in the bread maker. Next is the dining area then a lounge with settee and easy chair. It also has the stairs leading up to the bedroom. There was a log burner ready laid if we needed a fire plus two night storage heaters. The later worked and blasted out heat however being older technology require you to decide what heating you need/want the day before and take some getting used to. Everything was clean and worked and the whole place was comfortable and a relaxing place to stay. Graham and Trisha are friendly and helpful and frequently around so can easily be consulted if you have any questions. We would certainly stay here again.

Superb accomodation, in a stunning location.

We have just returned, very reluctantly, from a week in Gate Lodge, one of Trysha & Graham’s unique and superb holiday cottages in Ingram, in the Breamish Valley of the Northumberland National Park. After a long drive, from the moment we entered Gate Lodge, the fatigue melted away. The cottage was prepared so beautifully for our arrival, gentle lighting and music playing as we opened the door, and then the wonderful smell of freshly baked bread, and our pre-ordered supper gently cooking. It took us a few moments to realise there was home made soup to accompany the wonderful fresh crusty loaf! As we had skipped lunch we enjoyed this unexpected and delightful late lunch, at teatime! It didn’t spoil our appetites for the excellent supper prepared by Trysha, later in the evening. Gate Lodge has a hot tub/spa on the cottage’s secluded private terrace which was bliss after a long walk, plus a sauna in the dressing room! No 5 star hotel we have ever stayed in offered these facilities exclusively for our use. Delightful walks from the door, and so much to explore within a 30-45 drive from Ingram. The tranquility of the setting, the beauty of the location, the birdlife in the garden including Trysha & Graham’s doves, plus rabbits gently grazing on the lawn, and we were visited several evenings by a hedgehog, who after checking us out, gently strolled across the enormous lawns of The Old Rectory, Trysha & Graham’s home, around which are 7 other superbly designed cottages of different periods and size. Cheviot Holiday Cottages deserve in excess of 5 Stars. We are sure many guests return time and again, we most certainly will be doing so. Thank you Trysha and Graham, and congratulations on the quality of the holiday homes you have created, and the service you provide. Angela & Roger

Excellent week at Gate Lodge

wessex50, Wiltshire, United Kingdom
We have just spent a week staying at Gate Lodge. It was an excellent choice. Very high standard accommodation, spotless and well equipped. We loved the homemade soup & bread to welcome us. The hot tub & sauna were very relaxing and scrupulously clean. Hosts were friendly and available if needed. Location was great, we enjoyed watching the birds and wildlife outside including red squirrels. Good walks from the door and not too far a drive from the beautiful Northumberland coast. We would recommend Cheviot Holiday Cottages & hope to return when we holiday in Northumberland again.
