Fantastic break
Accommodation excellent, beds very comfortable, homemade shortbread on arrival, very quiet surroundings even though the accommodation is on a working farm, good base to go sight seeing, would recommend to anyone thinking of booking. I will definitely book again.

first class accommodation, no details overlooked
this is an excellent cottage with a garden and views over the South Tyne Valley. .Ideally located for Hadrian's wall and local walks in the Northumbrian countryside. Return in the evening to a wood burning stove, dark skies and silence. We came for the salmon fishing but the river was low so spent time exploring the well documented walking rings of Haltwhistle and district. A very welcoming host who provided a delicious plate of home made shortbread.

Great place to stay
What a lovely cottage to stay in. Two big bedrooms, each with ensuite. Great location for walking Hadrian's Wall. Very welcoming owner who lives next door, who gave us some beautiful shortbread when we arrived. The living room has a wood burner fire, so you'll be warm inside if it's cold out.

Restful!
We spent 2 days here. Lovely, warm and cosy cottage. Suited us and our two boys (5y and 8y). All needs catered for. Friendly owners who were around but respected our privacy. Surroundings stunning. Lots to do in local area! Would recommend as we have stayed in cottages all over the Uk.

Great cottage with everything in place for a get away from the rat race. BLISS!!!!
Lovely hosts Dorothy and Alan made us feel so welcome nothing was too much trouble. Alan kept the coal and wood stocked up so we could light the log burner for a cosy night in with a glass of wine. Dorothy left us milk and lovely home made shortbread on arrival. A great cosy cottage for a base to explore lovely Northumberland and all the historical sights. Fab showers and great comfy bed and everything was thought of in advance no need to take anything but clothes,toiliteries and food Will be booking again Phil and Melanie robertson

Great stay
Hillis Close Farm Cottage is an ideal place to stay when you are travelling by car and wish the peace and quiet of the countryside. A lovely welcome by Dorothy who also had prepared a treat for us. We travelled with another couple and we each had an ensuite with a shower, great value. We stayed a month and used this Cottage stay as a base for visiting areas within and around the 'Centre of Britain'.

Absolutely Amazing
We were very happy with the warm welcome we got from Dorothy when we first arrived. Dorothy was so friendly and we had milk and shortbread waiting for us. The cottage is absolutely gorgeous, everything was clean and the fire was ready to be lit which we thought was a lovely touch. I cannot fault anything, it was amazing!
