We stayed in Katie's Cottage for a week. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Hilary, who had baked us a cake and left us some local honey,lovely unexpected touch. Later, Sandra introduced us to a wealth of information about the surrounding area, some great tips on places to visit. The farm is located close to Beamish, Durham, Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, pretty little coastal resorts, to name but a few. The cottage is very comfortably decorated & equipped. Everything you need is there. Hillary and Sandra are so friendly and helpful and are there if you need them, otherwise you are left to enjoy your holiday. We can definitely highly recommend this place as a hidden gem.We rate this accommodation as one of the best places we have stayed. We will definitely return. Debbie and Ade. Grimsby

A friend & I have stayed in Katie’s Cottage for our Summer Break for many years. We always book for the next year as we could not find a better place to stay. Hilary & Sandra are the perfect hosts. The welcome cake etc. Is much appreciated & the cottage is perfect as everything you need is provided. Low Urpeth Farm is ideal for visiting the local area. There are so many interesting places to go & amazing scenery. This year we watched the farm machinery in action. Fascinating to us Townies! Also the new addition of the chickens & the automatic lawnmowers kept us occupied each morning. Low Urpeth Farm is a Jewel. We feel so at home when we come. We are so pleased to have found the perfect holiday accommodation (or should I say Home from Home.)

Just returned from a long weekend staying in the Bungalow at Low Urpeth farm. It was easy to find off the main road, and was ideally situated about 5 minutes from Beamish and close to Gateshead and Newcastle. We were welcomed by Hilary and given little Easter treats for the children, and a delicious cake, which were really appreciated after a long drive. As a family of 4 the Bungalow was comfortable and spacious, with 2 ensuite bedrooms and a large kitchen, dining room and lounge. A Tesco delivery, just after we arrived, saved loading the car with food. The next morning, an Easter Egg hunt had been arranged by Sandra for all the children, which went down very well! We visited Beamish twice with the reduced price vouchers (good value and plenty to do) and also had a trip to Whitley Bay to visit St Mary's lighthouse, at low tide (again, well worth a visit). Overall, it was lovely having a comfortable place to stay and a big thank you to Hilary, Peter and Sandra. We'll recommend you to everyone!
