We booked this cottage as the photos suggested views over the Tyne valley and we assumed it was therefore south facing. It actually faced East with views of a wall. Hot water was only luke warm and nobody could use water if someone was in the shower. There was a lack of cutlery. I kept banging my head on the ensuite bathroom ceiling as it is very low over the toilet. Quite noisy with the main road and it was on the flight path for Newcastle airport. Positively the lounge was of good size and comfortable.
