“Perfect for relaxtion”
Reviewed September 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Made to feel very welcome by Eddie, apparently some people have had issue with the drive, our car is just a regular family estate and it is fairly low at the front, we negotiated the concrete drive perfectly well.

We enjoyed the stove and the fun of cooking on it, we didn't get in the hot tub as much but we did enjoy cosying up watching film by candlelight with a real fire to keep us toasty.

A perfect place to relax and switch off for a few days - we didn't get any mobile reception in the cottage, a little bit outside but there's i plenty of free wi-if in Alston. We liked this as helped us relax and switch off.

We would happily return, lovely area and lovely people, thank you

“Lovely place”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just a beautiful place. Ideal for walks, local exploring and relaxation. It's a lovely cosy cottage and expect a warm welcome from Eddie and Louise and amazing scenery. Whether you want a romantic getaway or a base to explore the rugged and majestic landscape the area has to offer, this was just ideal.

“Amazing”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have stayed at this location before but in one of their other accommodations. The cottage was lovely just the right size me and hubby. the views were amazing and the hot tub was awesome. We sat in the hot tub with the doors open and enjoyed the views and a glass of wine. We were glad that there was a flushing toilet as when we stayed in the the other accommodations they were just putting it in there and wasn't sure about going in the other one. Owners were great, going in March it was still quite cold and we started to run out of fuel for the fire, but we only had to text and he got some up to us straight away. lovely place.

“a little Gem in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was our second time at banks farm we stayed in the crofters cottage this time, we were celebrating my 40th birthday. The cottage is very cosy with everything you need for a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The hot tub was fantastic clean and very private .Eddie and Louise provide a warm welcome to this fantastic accommodation we are looking forward to returning

I would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a romantic quiet break in rustic accommodation

“Excellent Little Cottage”
Reviewed October 21, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed from 16-18th October and I can honestly say it was one of the best weekends my wife and I have had in a long time. We wanted a weekend of peace and quiet and that's exactly what we got. The cottage has everything you would need and now has a flushing toilet!!! I can't recommend this cottage enough if you just want to escape the rat race and relax. Hats off to Eddie and his partner for creating a wonderful little escape. See you next year skiddy!!!!!!!
