Our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful hosts Lyn and Callum for their hospitality. We had the opportunity to stay at some wonderful B&B’s while we were recently on Holiday in the U.K. and I have to say that the Callaly Cottage Retreat is in a class of it’s own. As we pulled into the gravel drive we were greeted by... More

I stayed at Callaly Cottage in October 2013 and had such a lovely visit that it was an automatic choice to stay there again when I took my aunt for her first trip to Northumberland.

Lyn and Callum, take great care in providing a natural serene home away from home. Everything from the quality of toiletries to the linens and the large rooms, decorated in a calming farmhouse feel, surround you as you relax and begin to distress. Lyn and Callum are wonderful people who become friends you want to spend more time with. We... More
