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

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. Once again everything was just perfect - I cannot find anything negative to say about the cottage and I have high expectations. The place simply... More

We wanted to visit Northumberland again after a ten year gap - Callaly Cottage was the automatic choice for us since that is where we had stayed/enjoyed our time on that occasion. When we found out that Lynn was still running the B&B there the decision was easy. She is so chatty and caring and really puts you at ease... More

Lynn & Callum were very warm & welcoming,tea & biscuits served in the garden once we had unpacked, set the scene for a fantastic stay. Good... More
