“Cosy and Welcoming”
Reviewed February 5, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

It was late when we arrived at the cottage but were made to feel very welcome by Joanne and Gordon. They showed us round this fantastic place.
The cottage has wonderful fires, cosy furnishings and all the things you could need when away from home and a bit more... There was a secret room and treasures around the cottage to be found and a great little picnic ready to go on an adventure.
The cottage is located in the middle of countryside surrounded by sheep that you have to drive through to get to the cottage. This really is a county cottage! There were plenty of places to walk or drive to. If you prefer to stay close to the cottage there was a hot tub to relax in, a nearby stream to watch and a great enclosed garden with plenty of wildlife to watch.
This was our first visit to the cottage, we'll be going again... we loved it!

“Luxury Northumbrian Escape”
Reviewed January 17, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Our first visit to this little piece of heaven in the heart of Northumberland. You won't be disappointed with this cottage its full of everything and more you'll ever need for your stay. Joanne and Gordon look after your every need and just when you think you've discovered everything you'll find little hidden treats that just go that extra mile.

“ANOTHER 5 STAR PLUS STAY”
Reviewed January 13, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

This is the THIRD time we have stayed at this wonderful cosy cottage with our Dog.

Total relaxation and there is nothing better than sitting with a glass of red with the open fire burning watching the world (the odd sheep or chciken) go by.

Two fanstic owners/hosts Gordon and Joanne who make you feel at home instantly.

I can't recommend this place enough!

“A beautiful and luxurious cottage!”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We have stayed at Petty Knowes FOUR times and we are going back for our 5th stay this summer. Joanne and Gordon are fantastic friendly hosts who have thought of everything to make your stay perfect - from the delicious hamper and bottle of wine/bubbles to the 'Gin Room' and hot tub as well as the open fire and log burner. This was our first Christmas visit as we normally stay here in the summer and to make our stay even more special the cottage had been tastefully decorated including a fabulous real Christmas Tree. They think of everything!! The location is peaceful and has stunning views of the surrounding countryside (wonderful sunsets seen from the tub!!!). If you are into walking it is ideally located for the Simonside Hills, the Cheviots and the Border Ridge. It is also handy for visiting Kielder Forest, Alnick, Holy Island the East Coast where there are fantastic beaches.

“A break away from it all”
Reviewed December 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Second visit and again a wonderfully relaxing time was had. Great dark sky to watch the stars. Recommended to anyone looking to get away from the hurly burly and take time out for yourself.

“Gorgeous holiday cottage!”
Reviewed December 28, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Had the pleasure of staying at Petty Knowes Cottage for one night, I didn't want to leave! The attention to detail with the facilities is first class, Joanne and Gordon have thought of everything you would ever need for your stay! My boyfriend loved the cottage too, it was extremely comfortable and so quiet so we had no trouble getting to sleep. The dark skies allow a wonderful view of the stars (something that we don't get to see too often living in a built up area). Being up at the top of a hill you get spectacular views surrounding the cottage.

Ideally located close to Kielder forest, roman historical sites and other activities.

Would highly recommend anyone thinking of booking to do so, you won't be disappointed!

“Perfect getaway from it all accommodation”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My wife and me visited here with Brodie our GSP. This was our second visit this year and we have had a fantastic stay. Joanne and Gordon greeted us upon our arrival, a pleasure to meet them both again. The cottage is superb, truly a home from home and then some. We loved the picnic hamper, scrumptious and a lovely bottle of wine. They have put so much thought into the whole experience it is truly appreciated, we can't sing their praises highly enough other than to say, try it for yourselves. We are already checking our diary for next year.
