Reviewed June 30, 2019 for a stay in June 2019

On booking cottage back in 2018 Kevin the owner from then right until the day we left
Was/Is a really nice person
Even though the owners live next door you would not think so.
Never Felt Looked Upon Left to wander freely
Staying at Brownside was so accessible to so many places from Northumberland Coast to Lake District and even into Scottish Boarders
But The Nicest Thing Was Country walks TO HADRIANS WALL From the cottage and well known Forts ..This Place is a little gem..
Well Worth A Stay
And A Thank You For Kevin For Renting Out This Lovely Cottage

“Luxurious retreat facilitating fascinating historic visits and country walks”
Reviewed August 20, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The cottage was fitted out to the highest standard. Kevin, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. We really appreciated nice touches like fresh flowers in the house and a welcome bottle of wine. All in all a very good option, convenient for Hadrian's Wall and trips along the Tyne Valley. One thing that would be a nice improvement would be to have the wi-fi signal boosted.

“Peaceful & Quiet”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Brownside is a lovely clean and tidy cottage. It has everything you need for a comfortable relaxing stay.

Brownside is a good location for getting out and about as there is lots to see and do in Northumberland. You do need bare in mind, you will need to leave an hour to an hour and a half if you are visiting Alnwick, Amble, Holy Island etc.

Kevin and Ann are lovely hosts and could not do enough to make our stay the best it could be. They are lovely company.

“Fabulous cottage, fabulous views, fabulous location for all things roman”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Everything you could need. Dishwasher, whirlpool bath, all kitchen appliances including a breadmaker and mixer. Very close to the great Vindolanda. Easy access to the best stretch of Hadrians wall. Use the ad122 bus to get to the start of your route and walk back to the car. Many historical sites nearby - join the English heritage. Carlisle and Newcastle also easy to reach by car, train or bus. Many places to visit further afield. Northumberland coast accessible in just over a hour. Friendly owners, wine and flowers a nice touch. Loads of information available about the area. Cottage is exactly as described and photos are a true representation.
We had a wonderful week here. A real gem for investigating Hadrians wall
