“Fantastic Accommodation in a great location”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is a beautiful cottage a real home from home in a great location for exploring Cumbria and Northumberland.
The owners are friendly and helpful and on arrival provided us with fresh eggs, home made cookies and even biscuits for the dog.
This was in addition to the fantastic welcome pack which is an option well worth selecting.
This cottage combines all the mod cons (including sky and Wi-Fi) with seclusion - perfect.
The views from the cottage are fantastic and there are so many beautiful places to visit close by. We explored Hadrian's wall and several Roman Forts as well as visiting a number of waterfalls nearby, Ashgill Force is great fro the more adventurous or High Force if you don't want to climb - and Low Force is a hidden gem.
Alston is only 4 miles away and has everything you need with a lovely bakery at the top of the hill.
