Just returned from our 3rd. stay in this amazing place and already booked for our 4th.
You feel instantly at home in this warm & welcoming cottage and can tell immediately just how much it is loved by all who stay there!
Built in 1760 and beautifully picturesque it spills over with charm & character and contains everything you could possibly need, including a cosy log burning stove and underfloor kitchen heating for those cooler evenings!
We chose a quiet & relaxing holiday enjoying the tranquil garden and surrounding hamlets, but there is so much more to do should that be your choice - amazing places to visit including its powerful Roman history, gentle lanes to cycle down, crystal rivers to swim in, dark skies to wonder at and spectacular walks so beautiful they take your breath away!
We always feel valued here thanks Richard & Emma being such kind and generous hosts who can not do enough to make your stay just PERFECT!
Go and enjoy this little gem, you will not be disappointed!!
Wonderful cottage made even better by the warm and generous welcome and considerate touches. We were not blessed with the weather but more than made up for by the tranquil setting ....and the dogs loved it. Great walks nearby especially up on to the common and local people very relaxed and friendly. Lovely garden to sit out in (if it weren't for the driving sleet and snow!). Cottage well equipped and has everything you could ask for - absolutely loved the kitchen underfloor heating and the decoration and furnishings very tasteful. Thank-you for such a lovely stay - would definitely return.
Good cottage in a great location with lots of walks nearby. Woodburner kept us very cosy but we had a February heatwave too! We all had a good, relaxing time in and around Haltwhistle, with good company and away from the hustle and bustle. Didn't want to leave!
A lovely week spent at Stonecrop, a warm and welcoming cottage in an idyllic location. Great personal touches around the cottage, cosy lounge with wood-burner, well-equipped kitchen with underfloor heating. Ideal for walking directly from the cottage, good location for exploring Hadrian’s Wall and surrounding towns and villages. Welcoming gifts of Prosecco, coffee and chocs were a very nice touch.
We loved this cottage and were "wow-ed" by it. The location is perfect for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of town life and traffic jams. Its in the middle of no where. Sheep, cows and horses all around. Walking by day, flicking through a book in the evening by the log burner with a glass of whiskey. No need to bring any books - the cottage is virtually a library!
All the stuff to keep the kids entertained (pens and paper, books, toys, tv, videos).
The washer and dryer were a godsend!
One to remember for a future visit.
This is the forth time we have stayed at Stonecrop in the past few years, so it's becoming like home from home. Lovely old period cottage in very quiet rural hamlet of Eals, midway between Haltwhistle and Alston. Located in lovely Northumberland countryside with walks straight from the doorstep. Ideal for pure peace and quiet. We have stayed with our dog and it's perfect dog friendly cottage, all mod cons yet the feel of a traditional stone country cottage. We look forward to our next stay. Thank You.
