Simply cannot praise this property or the owners enough. The cottage was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. I am often anxious about sleeping in beds in rental property but absolutely no anxiety at all in this one. The bed was inviting and impeccably dressed and extremely comfortable. The kitchen is delightful, the living area stylish and comfortable and the bathroom luxurious. Our dogs were made welcome not just by the owners but by the neighbours too! This was our first visit to the North East and found this property was ideally situated...rural yet only 17 mins from Newcastle City Centre. All the places we wanted to visit were within 45mins drive through fabulous countryside. We cannot wait to go back again but our next visit will be determined by the availability of the Old Barn later in the year. I urge you to try this cottage before it's permanently fully booked.
