Go here to escape from the world. We have stayed in both rooms twice now, both so fabulous there's no choosing between them. As usual, Lyn and Calum's hospitality is without rival. We have always spent so much time over breakfast chatting with other guests that the morning is half over before you know it! The location, whilst out in... More

Our second visit to this special gem. A quiet and beautiful location in the heart of a very special county. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated/furnished. There is a wide range of breakfasts, which are beautifully prepared and provide an excellent start to your day. The large garden provides a lovely location for an evening glass of... More

We stayed at Callaly Cottage for two nights last year and promised to return for a longer visit. This time we stayed a week and, apart from the weather which wasn't too kind, we had a wonderful time. Lyn and Calum are so welcoming and thoughtful, as other reviewers have said, nothing is too much trouble. Lyn was incapacitated while... More

With a wonderful welcome, we were shown to our beautiful room overlooking an amazing garden with fields beyond. Lyn and Callum are great hosts, breakfast was excellent and the packed lunches were delicious. The lounge/dining room is a great place to meet other guests. We love Cumbria but Northumberland, and especially the area around Callaly, has overtaken the Lakes as... More

Peaceful, tranquil B&B in the 'middle of nowhere'. The loudest sounds were the bees buzzing and the birds chirping. Lyn and Callum are perfect hosts and they have really thought of everything guests might need, including a lovely lounge with a small fridge to keep your wine chilled! Breakfasts are gorgeous. The room was lovely, the bathroom HUGE and the... More

We had a two night break at Callaly Cottage on the way home from a wedding and two days was not enough. The location was beautifully isolated, with scenic views and very tranquil. Lyn and Calum were very welcoming and relaxed hosts, and were able to recommend many places to visit. We really enjoyed the little touches like fresh cut... More

The accommodation stylish, spacious and airy, Callaly Cottage is a peaceful base for sightseeing, visiting attractions, activity breaks or simply taking it easy and enjoying the rural tranquility.
