“Great place for a couple”
Reviewed February 21, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Lovely stay. Very cosy and well presented. Friendly welcome - I made a mistake with dates on the booking and owner was very helpful changing them at the last minute. I'd definitely recommend this as a place to stay to friends.

Beautiful clean cottage and in a lovely location. Maxine made us feel very welcome and beautiful yummy muffins awaited us which went down a treat! Would definitely recommend this cottage and will definitely be returning.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed January 23, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Could not rate this place highly enough. The cottage is beautiful and my boyfriend and I had a lovely night's stay. Maxine is a perfect host, allowing us to stay until 5 the next day and even offering is the place for another night as she had no one else booked. 10/10!

“Wobderful host, beautiful accommodation made our stay really memorable”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a great weekend at The Old Workshop. Maxine was a friendly and thoughtful host who made us feel most welcome. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and were really touched that she'd even left us a bottle of prosecco in the fridge! The accommodation is gorgeous, clean, well decorated and equipped, exactly what we were after. Came home feeling thoroughly relaxed, we were rather sad to leave! Looking forward to visiting again in the near future when hopefully the weather will be on our side for stargazing! Thank you Maxine for a wonderful stay!

“Cosy and welcoming!”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

A lovely few days in The Old Workshop. Parking very easy outside cottage. Spotlessly clean up and downstairs with a warm electric fire ready to go. Maxine even left us some fruitcake to snack on on arrival! Internet with Netflix all good too for a nice night in. We were visiting Kielder National Park primarily and it was down the road so great location for us and I would recommend anyone visiting there to consider this rental.

“Wonderful Rental”
Reviewed December 8, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is a wonderful rental property, cosy and suited for 2 people. Beautifully appointed with lots of nice touches (the freshly baked cake was a lovely welcome from Maxine). The kitchen area is well equipped and the bedroom on the mezzanine floor comfortable and luxurious. The location in the centre of Bellingham is excellent for all amenities, including the activities in Kielder Forest.
Looking forward to going back soon.

“Beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed November 22, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I stayed here with my partner at the beginning of November for a weekend to enjoy the dark skies. We felt so at home in the old workshop, such a lovely stay. It has everything you could want for a cosy get away. The decor is lovely. Maxine the lady who manages the place was so accommodating was really nice to meet her and stay in her lovely holiday home.
Surrounding area is lovely with a few nice pubs, cafe and co-op in walking distance.
Highly recommend it!
