From the moment we arrived Lyn did everything to ensure our stay was great. A warm, hospitable, beautiful place- peaceful with plenty of enjoyable activities and sites nearby. Highly recommended for a countryside retreat!

Just spent a fabulous 2 nights at Callaly and wish it could have been longer. Our room was lovely and comfortable with quality bedding and towels, good shower and plenty of hot water for a soak in the huge bath. Everything you could wish for and Lyn was so welcoming and friendly. Wonderful breakfasts overlooking the lovely garden with all... More

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 came to the Cottage Retreat through a friends recommendation, for 3 nights and were delighted with the warm and personal welcome from Lyn, and her love of life,enthusiam, and generosity of spirit. 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
