A perfect place to relax, surrounded by the beautiful scenery. The cottage has stunning views of the Northumberland countryside and you really feel relaxed from the moment you arrive. Lyn is a fantastic host and the breakfasts are the best we've had! We had a massage treatment on our stay which we'd highly recommend and made it a perfect, relaxed... More

The room was beautiful and very comfy bed, the power of the shower took a little getting used too!! The breakfast was delicious and as a coeliac, Lyn was very accommodating getting me special biscuits, chocolate chip no less!! It was a... More

A wonderful little gem in the heart of the countryside, with a genuinely lovely host. The breakfast is not to be missed! An extensive selection of holistic treatments including massage, and an extra deep bath ensure a truly relaxing break.

Was treated to a night here for my 30th birthday by my boyfriend and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Northumberland is one of my favourite places and the view from our room was simply stunning. The room itself was spacious, well equipped and the bed was probably one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Bathroom was, again spacious and... More

We came accross this by chance and my only regret is that our stay was so short! A warm welcome from Lyn, combined with the extremely comfy room equipped with everything you need, a big relaxing bath and just a general feeling of tranquility set us up for a good, challenging weekend on the hills. Of course fuelled by a... More

If you like watching tv in the evening and if you like a pub nearby, don't stay here. If you like peaceful countryside, a great breakfast ( tip...start with the fruit salad), a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed and a lovely host, (Lyn you are special), who has thought of everything you might need, and if she hasn't...

We will remember our holiday in such a peaceful setting in a valley some distance from the main road, at one end of the village. The sheep... More

My partner and myself stayed at Callaly Cottage for two nights and our stay will always be warmly remembered. As soon as we arrived it was almost as if time stood still and we could breath again. The cottage itself was immaculate and full of little reminders of home. The service was perfect in every way and provided intuitively by... More
