***We are monitoring the Covid-19 situation and hope to open more dates soon*** Stay in a 20m2 geodesic dome in a secluded location in rural Northumberland. With a wood fired hot tub, fire pit, and deck with beautiful views of the pond and surrounding trees, it's a perfect spot to relax, unwind and get back to nature. The site is completely off grid - water in containers, solar power, and composting toilet. We believe this makes the site special, offering a unique back-to-basics experience.
Our ethos is to provide a simple but comfortable, tranquil space to 'unplug' from the modern world, with a minimal impact on the surrounding nature so that it can be enjoyed. Please read our description fully before booking to ensure that our dome and site is perfect for you. Satori dome is located on a working farm alongside a large pond. Spend your time watching wild ducks and swans through the panoramic bay window, or explore North Northumeberland before heading back to your site for a soak in the outdoor Japanese soaking tub, whilst star gazing from the deck. Our dome is set up for 2 people with a double bed and Eve© memory foam mattress (bedding is provided.) LED battery fairy lights and lanterns provide mood lighting inside and outside the dome at night, and logs are provided for the wood burning stove and fire to keep you cosy when it is cold outside. Outside on the deck is a gas BBQ for cooking and inside there is a worktop and sink set up for prepping simple meals and washing up dishes (plates, cutlery and utensils provided.) A camp stove and kettle is also provided if you wish to boil water for teas and coffee. A leisure battery powers a small 24 Litre electric cool box to keep food items cool. The battery also has a USB port to charge your devices. Our simple off-grid sink is setup with a 25 litre container of fresh spring water and hand pump tap for washing up. Your outdoor hot tub will be filled with fresh spring water for your arrival. It can be used 2-3 times and takes 2-4 hours to heat up (depending on the weather/season), and will usually stay warm overnight. Please note that in keeping with our ethos of having a low impact on the surrounding nature, soaps are NOT allowed to be used in the tub because of the harm they could cause to the aquatic life of the pond when the tub is drained. We do not (yet) have a shower at the dome, for most people this is not a problem as the hot tub water is clean and does not contain any chemicals, and makes you feel fresh afterwards. The Eco friendly composting toilet is set back from the dome. Whilst it is basic, please be assured that it is both clean and civilised :)
The site is rural (no postcode and the closest neighbours are sheep), but is not far from a main road with easy access to the market towns Wooler (10 mins), Alnwick (20 mins) and Berwick-upon-Tweed (30 mins), as well as the stunning coast (40 mins). There are plenty of local pubs and shops within an approximate 10 minute drive. The location is great for those seeking to explore Chillingham Castle, The Cheviot hills, Ingram Valley, Bamburgh Beach and many other spectacular locations.
  • Go for it! Love what has been created here x

  • We had such a lovely couple of days here! It was easy to find with the directions given, the dome was super clean and we had the most relaxing couple of days. Would highly recommend Hugh & Liz's place and we would love to come back in the summer.

    Jemma2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this stay for my partner's 30th birthday weekend and I can honestly say it did not disappoint. From start to finish the entire stay was perfect. The directions were so simple to follow, the drive alone was so scenic and beautiful. When we arrived we were amazed at how secluded the pod was and how peaceful and calming the environment was. The entire place was immaculate and had amazing touches such as mood lighting, playing cards etc. More than enough logs for the tub stove, log burner and campfire. Tub was absolutely incredible after a long day out. I would 1000% book up to stop here again. Thank you so much for having us.

    Gemma2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place to stay- bigger in person as well. Would recommend

    Kayleigh2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Wow! Wow! This place does everything you think it would do and more. My wife and I spent 3 nights in the Dome and it felt like we had gone away for weeks! Hugh and Liz have a Gem of a location. The dome is so well situated and equipped that it is so easy to relax and enjoy the nature around you! The sounds of nature are like a sleeping drug for the soul. We did a day trip to Edinburgh which was as little as an hour and a half away, I mean hello... I recommend this place big time for people who just want things to slow down a little and get refreshed. Thank you for your great hospitality Hugh and Liz!

    Corbin2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. Complete isolation and a great view of the lake. Wood burning fire for inside and for the hot tub - plenty of logs provided. The bed is comfortable and the utilities do a basic job well. If you're into this sort of thing, this is just right.

    Ben2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Simply a wonderful experience, so peaceful and relaxing. The dome and its location are stunning, even in the middle of February! Using the hot tub under the blackest starry sky I’ve ever seen was blissful. I was worried about the toilet, but it was clean and very hygienic. It took us mire like 5 hours to heat up the tub, but only because we were being a little too cautious. Definitely leave the ash pan open a little on the hot tub stove to get the fire roaring and I’m sure it could be done in 3 hours. We left the curtains open to watch for shooting stars; just wonderful. We will stay there again in the summer or autumn to experience better weather, but this did not detract from a wonderful break.

    Michelle2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic place to get away and switch off from everything, loved all the extra touches and the setting of the dome is amazing. To be able to sit in a hot tub and star gaze on a cold February night was brilliant ☺️

  • The Glass House is spectacular! It’s a cosy, beautiful space. The location is pretty epic and quite secluded. It is a little off the beaten track - that’s why we chose it. Some of the local roads in winter aren’t the best. We visited at the end of February in a small car, after three consecutive storms but we did find a route there that was easy enough. It’s well worth fully reading Julia’s directions to figure the best route for you to take. The underfloor heating keeps the place cosy even without the log burner. There are great local walks. Plenty of things to keep you busy in Allendale (1.5hr walk) and Hadrians Wall is just a short drive away. Julia is great, her farm is lovely - fully recommend and would happily visit again!

    Nick2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. First time away with our dog who also had a good time. Lots of good walks, short car journey to Allendale where pubs serve good food and even better pints.

    Lewis2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely funky little place, beautiful scenery, was a shame we had rain! There are chickens roaming about outside of the house and sheep in the fields nearby. Julia and her husband were so friendly and welcoming and have local recommendations. The place is very cosy with a huge log fire, we had a lovely time ☺️

    Rebecca2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Glass House is a stunning space I a stunning landscape. Perfect escape to the country with our black lab who loved the countless walks from the front door. Highly recommend and hope to be back one day!

    Laura2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We went away for a couple of nights and it was great. A cute little barn with everything we needed. And very very cosy. Enjoyed the fact that there was no WiFi and poor signal, made us appreciate the time together more and the lush views rather than being distracted. Very muddy in the wet as you'd expect but didn't let it put us off. Some lovely walks to be had.

    Aaron2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing space! Beautifully furnished and heated floor was lovely on a cold, wet evening.

    Liam2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at the Glass House! We did a bit of Isaac Tea Trail walk and it was just beautiful. Would love to stay again. Thank you!

    Alanna2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Had the most amazing stay. So tranquil and secluded. The house is so impressive, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Anything you need - it’s there. We used the log burner and the underfloor heating made it so warm and cosy on a windy, winters night. The whole place is just really special. 10 minutes in the car to nice little pubs and great food at the golden lion in Allendale. Julia is so quick to respond and leaves you to your own devices but you know she’s around should you need anything. A really unique place and beautiful surroundings. Can imagine it’s gorgeous in summer with the BBQ and lovely little garden. Thank you Julia!!!

  • The cottage is wonderful - gorgeously quaint and quirky with a beautiful and elegant mezzanine bedroom, cosy and comfy lounge area, well equipped, new kitchen and shower room. We had a delightful stay. The addition of wireless internet would make it perfect!

    Paul2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay in this beautiful cottage. Took the day to travel around Durham, and spent two nights at the cottage. Would definitely stay again.

    Alan2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is the first time staying here and we couldn’t of asked for anything better. Michael was very warm welcoming and gave plenty of information on where we could go to visit. The cottage itself was sparkling clean and the log burner was a brilliant extra. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you for a brilliant weekend

    Daniel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely hideaway in the countryside. The wood burner was fantastic after returning home from a walk in a blizzard! Very nicely furnished and a lovely cosy cottage feel about it. Top Tip: Take slippers. The floors can be cold on your feet in winter.

    Ben2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Michael was very welcoming, he provided us with lots of recommendations regarding where to walk / eat and drink. Cannot fault the cleanliness of the cottage. Perfect location just off of the A68 with plenty to do in the surrounding area. You won't be dissapointed.

    Joshua2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Just home from a two night stay with my friend. Despite the weather we’ve had a lovely couple of days in the cottage; the log burner and alpacas were a particular highlight for us! Hope to come back 😊

    Ashley2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A very cosy cottage with all you need for a relaxing getaway in the countryside. A couple of maintenance issues were dealt with promptly so that our stay was not affected. Would stay again.

    Eve2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the cottage - a very warm welcome from Michael and great tips for local pubs and walks. Just what we needed.

    Puffin Place is a great little holiday hideaway set in the historic conservation area of Seahouses and is perfect for couples or small families / groups. The cottage is in a peaceful location but just a minute from the harbour with the Northumbrian Coastal Path just at the end of the lane.
    We bought Puffin Place in April 2018 both in order to be able to use the cottage ourselves and hire out to visitors. It takes just an hour to get to from our home in Newcastle, and once there we rarely feel the need to use the car except when we're taking a day-trip to one of the many nearby sites of interest. In the time we have spent in the Seahouses everyone seems very friendly, even by North-East standards. Seahouses is a 'resort village' with something for everyone and is ideally located in the centre of the Northumbria coastline. All the other attractions of the Northumbria coast are within a short drive: to the north (Bamburgh, Lindisfarne and Berwick); to the south (Craster, Beadnell and Embleton) and inland to Alnwick and a multitude of picturesque villages and other attractions. The cottage is tucked away in a quiet location in the oldest part of the village, among the smokeries and fishermen's cottages, but just a few minute's walk from the bustling harbour and the centre of the town. Despite its history - it was built in around 1850 - the cottage has been fully modernised and run as a popular holiday let since 2001.
    Puffin Place is is located within a 2 minute walk of the Seahouses village amenities where there's a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Guests can take daily boat trips available to the Farne Islands, the home of seals and seabirds and explore the surrounding area filled with wildlife. There are beautiful sandy beaches to the north and south with lots of places of interest just a short journey away. Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island are a short run up the coast and the historic market town of Alnwick along with castle and gardens is a 20 minute drive inland.
  • Lovely cozy cottage set in the heart of town close to anything you might need. Leave the car behind and walk or bus the whole area. Great little base. Many thanks to the owners

    Perfect for two, the Old Mill is a modern, cosy and eclectic conversion of 1700s water mill near the Royal Burgh of Lauder. This romantic bolthole is spacious and inviting - it's somewhere you can slow down and retreat from busy lives. Soak in a deep bath or rainforest shower, enjoy Meraki spa products, warmth from the woodburning stove, drink good coffee, cook, bake, read, or simply relax in the space around you. Edinburgh is just 40 mins away; most of the Scottish Borders is within 20 mins.
    Dod Mill’s old, industrial water mill has undergone a thoroughly modern redesign as a rural escape for two. It’s unique and stylish interiors, thick stone walls, spacious living space and mezzanine bedroom with feature bath make this a wonderful place to retreat from day-to-day life. The Old Mill retains many original features including the stable-style door at the entrance. You’ll pass through the porch into the large and open living space on the ground floor. The kitchen and dining areas open out into a double-height living space with a huge woodburning stove as the focal point of the room. Decorated throughout in Farrow & Ball, the space is light yet cosy with soft grey painted floors (underfloor heating), interesting fabrics and handmade shutters. The living area has a large sofa-bed (add guests on request), a thick vintage Moroccan rug, and some interesting decorative touches like a French balloon mould and antique chapati rolling pins. You’ll find a TV with Freesat (all standard UK channels), a DVD player, board games and a selection of books and maps. WiFi is available throughout the property. The rich aubergine-coloured kitchen is equipped for relaxed, holiday cooking. It has a sociable kitchen island, fan oven, 2-ring hob, dishwasher, a large fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster and a Nespresso machine for those in need of their daily caffeine fix. You’ll find artisan-made mugs, crockery, cutlery and glassware, as well as a cake stand, wooden boards and a good selection of serving platters and dishes. The large oak-topped dining table seats 6 so there is plenty of space to spread out, or invite friends over from other properties at Dod Mill (or in the area). You can also ask for the table to be extended to 12 if you’d like to entertain a larger group while staying in the Old Mill. Head upstairs to the mill’s original mezzanine floor, now converted to a bedroom. The super-comfy bed is king size and is made-up with anti-allergy bedding and pure Egyptian cotton linens. Have a long soak in the bedroom’s roll top bath, with Meraki spa-style products. The bath’s big enough to share, or enjoy on your own with a good book and a glass of wine. The en-suite shower room has a rainforest-style shower, soft-scented Meraki soap, shampoo and conditioner plenty of soft, fluffy towels. There is an additional “downstairs loo”. Head out the door by the woodburning stove and you’ll find an outdoor table and chairs and a small woodland garden area.
    Old Mill sits within Dod Mill, a unique and interesting historic site in the Scottish Borders near Lauder. For over 300 years, this was home to an industrial water mill where wheat, barley and oats were milled. There is also a kiln house where the grain was dried before milling. Dod Mill is 4 miles from the Royal Burgh of Lauder - which has fantastic amenities for visitors. There is a gorgeous little deli, The Spotty Dog, a lovely fruit & veg shop, The Purple Plum, art gallery / coffee shop, pubs, bakery, post office, petrol station and small supermarket (Co-Op). Lauder is completed with its own fairytale castle (Thirlestane Castle). The Old Mill at Dod Mill is also very close to wonderful Scottish Borders towns and historic sites. Melrose, Kelso, St Boswells, Duns and Galashiels are all within 20 minutes and each have a rich history and you can enjoy lots of local festivals. Some of the grandest houses in Scotland - Floors Castle, Mellerstain House, Manderston House, Abbotsford (the home of Sir Walter Scott) and Thirlestane Castle - are between 5 and 20 minutes drive away. Melrose Abbey, Kelso Abbey and Dryburgh Abbey are also each within 20-25 minutes. Other places of real note include the home of tartan, Lochcarron Visitor Centre, and the Borders Distillery & Visitor Centre (whisky and craft gin). The Borders has a number of superb festivals and events over the year, including the acclaimed Borders Book Festival, the Borders Art Fair, Tour of the Borders (cycling), the Great British Food Festival (at Floors Castle) to name a few. The Scottish Borders is a fantastic place for walking, hill walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing, country pursuits, arts, crafts and culture. Edinburgh is just 40 minutes drive away, and has so much for visitors to see and do. It makes for an easy day trip or two during your stay.
  • This was our first time using an Airbnb and Dodd mill didn’t disappoint, Ruth made us feel so welcome on our arrival, the Mill is absolutely idilic, it was so warm and cosy it made the perfect romantic getaway. We are already planning our return.

    Paul2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is lovely, stylish and very thoughtful in Ruth's place. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely love to come back!

    Chia-Lan2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ruth and Jamie are lovley and caring hosts. They do everything to make their guests feel home and comfortable. We have spent a wonderful week at Dod Mill together with our dog. The area and grounds of Dod Mill have more than exceeded our expectations. The old mill is lovingly furnished and decorated and invites you to relax with every detail. All you need (Restaurants, Takeaway or Shops) is easily to reach by car. Dod Mill is always worth a trip for us and we fully recommend staying there!

    Tabea Alena2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place for a bit of down time away from the stresses of modern life. Perfect!

    Kevin2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Came with our little dog for a few nights away and The Mill exceeded our expectations. It was exactly what we wanted, nice local walks, peaceful area, cosy log fire, comfortable bed and large bath. Generous hamper on arrival and each bathroom had lovely soaps and fresh towels. We loved all the finishing touches and how homely the place felt, particularly in providing things like a cake stand and a Bluetooth speaker, which were in use throughout our stay. We were sad to leave and wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks Ruth for a wonderful stay.

    Grace2019-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The mill was lovely, the welcome basket was a thoughtful touch by Ruth. The pictures do not do the mill justice, the bed is extremely comfortable. We will definitely stay again!

    Natalie2019-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Dod Mill is a location not to skip past. The hosts went above and beyond to make this a very enjoyable stay, to endless wood supplies for the woodburner to unexpected goodies on arrival which were very generous. The attention to detail from the design of the building to the spa/shampoo products, soft towels, immense bath and bath bombs, were second to none. I would go back here in a heart beat and would highly recommend you to also check it out!

    Jenna2019-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We go away every year for our anniversary and this is the first Airbnb we have booked and first place where the owner lives on site, which we were a bit apprehensive about at first. However, Ruth is such a lovely person and left us to it after giving us excellent instructions on how various items within the property worked. She has in depth instructions in a folder for how everything works and is very easily contactable, as is plenty of other services, through the extensive list of contacts within the folder. The space is fantastic and Ruth and Jamie have paid excellent attention to detail in their decor and interiors. The location is lovely with some beautiful scenic walking routes close by. Would definitely recommend this stay to all! You are both fantastic hosts and I hope yous manage to get some time away together child free!

    Martin2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage very high standard furnishing and also small touches such as hot water bottles, fire already to be lit and stacks of fire wood. Very friendly neighbours. Great views and location. 5 of us stayed and our dog and was very spacious. Look forward to visiting again.

    Nicole2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great stay in a beautiful location. Very cosy and perfect for a quiet get away.

    Chloe2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at David's cottage! Well appointed with everything required for your stay. David was really quick to answer any queries and help sort a couple of issues. All the neighbours we met were very friendly (including a four legged 1 who tried to jump into our car boot!) The cottage serves as a good base for visiting around the Borders which has lots of pretty, picturesque wee towns. We ate at the Greenhouse Cafe in Melrose and Simply Scottish in Jedburgh and would recommend both. Good food and friendly staff. Would make 2 small suggestions for improvement: the shower base doesn't have any grip or mat so was a little slippy to walk on. And a long lighter would come in handy for starting the fire, especially if you run out of matches which we did! Neither of these things spoiled our stay though and all 3 of us would happily return.

    Joanna2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely rustic cottage with wonderful wood burning fie to curl up beside.

    Christine2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful cottage - we were there in December and, despite the cold weather, felt very cosy thanks to the wood-burning stove and comfortable furnishings. We used all 3 double bedrooms - all the beds were very comfortable with the extra blankets and hot water bottles being a nice touch. The cottage is beautifully designed and renovated, and is very well appointed. It lies off a country lane about 10 mins south of St Boswell's where we visited with family. This is an excellent location for exploring this part of the Borders and the nearby towns like Melrose, Selkirk, and Peebles. The host, David, was very responsive and able to answer any questions promptly. All in all, our stay was a real treat!

    Fiona2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay and the cottage was beautiful. Lots of space and a lovely design, we particularly loved the house plants. All the extras were great like the robes, shampoo, and condiments. Also lots of useful advice and tips, there was more to see than we had time for! we're hoping to come back in the new year and explore a bit more.

    Rosanna2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our second trip to this gorgeous house. We once again had stunning weather and enjoyed the gorgeous colours of the forest on our walks. This is a perfect place to enjoy some peace and quiet. The house is equipped with everything you need.

We are always available to guests by phone, text or email. If you would like to meet up for a chat about what's available locally I would be happy to call in, but generally I would leave you to enjoy the house without interruption. The neighbourhood is peaceful, the silence only broken by the sound of birds both wild and domesticated and the odd vocal sheep. The domesticated variety of bird are actually very well behaved. Ideally your own car is the best way to get around. There are buses that run to Jedburgh and Newcastle but are fairly infrequent. Otterburn does however provide a good base point for walkers and cyclists looking to explore the Northumberland countryside. Otterburn Castle and the Border Reiver village shop (which stocks virtually anything and everything) are easily accessed on foot from the property. We will provide one basket full of logs for the wood burner. We will also provide some essentials, such as tea, coffee and sugar. Please just ask us for further information prior to your stay as we will try to accommodate for all guests as best that we can.

  • The Arches is beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. It was wonderful to get the log burner going; so cosy. Erika and Steve are great hosts who added some lovely touches such as milk and Prosecco! We were attending a wedding locally, so didn't venture out of Otterburn, but it's ideally placed for exploring the borders and fantastic value.

    Rowanside in Longformacus is a picturesque and homely country retreat, under an hour from Edinburgh and in the heart of the Lammermuirs. This beautiful 2 bedroomed cottage is perfectly situated for exploring the Scottish Borders and its rolling hills
    Rowanside in Longformacus is a picturesque and homely country retreat. Sleeping just four, plus a cot if required, the cottage consists of an open-plan sitting room (with log burner) kitchen and dining room, then two bedrooms (one double, one small twin) and a shower-room. Dogs, cats and children are welcome - but no pets on furniture or beds. Rowanside comes with WiFi and satellite TV. The kitchen is well equipped and logs are available for all guests. A small welcome basket is provided for all guests and the sheets have a 200 thread count. Books and games are on hand. Built to house workers from the local big house and is listed for its historical and architectural value. Rowanside is a perfect retreat with the wild Scottish borderlands on your doorstep. It is an unusual delight. The house website can be (EMAIL HIDDEN) Please note that the bedrooms are quite small so although there are chest of drawers, there is no wardrobe. Also the twin room is quite cozy for two adults - although me and my friends have used it many a time!
    An hour from Edinburgh and in the heart of the Lammermuirs, this beautiful 2 bedroomed cottage is great for walking the Southern Uplands Way. With the River Dye babbling past the front door, it is ideal for romantic breaks or anniversaries, or as the perfect location for a more active hol with family or friends. Relax in front of the fire after a day of exploring or adventuring on and around the Scottish Borders: walking, cycling, canoeing, fishing and many other activities are easily available.
  • Amazing place. Definitely recommend Ben's cottage and would use again.

    Amanda2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Rowanside. It is a cosy cottage with a nice living room and two bedrooms. The WiFi is great and there was satellite TV. The fire was amazing for keeping warm at night. We used the entire basket of logs left for us over two nights. Highly recommended.

    Johnny2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ben’s house is the perfect place to get away from it all, chill out and explore the beautiful countryside, which is literally accessible from the doorstep. The house is warm and inviting, and the real fire is a particular treat, especially after a long walk. Ben was excellent at keeping in touch and supplying lots of useful information. I highly recommend Ben and his charming house!

    Jennifer2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little cottage in a lovely area - enjoyed our 2 nights stay and would definitely book again if we were coming back. Cosy place, enjoyed lots of nice walks and a blustery visit to the picturesque St Abb's lighthouse! Ben was very quick to respond to messages and was very helpful to sort out picking up my forgotten bath bag! Thank you for a lovely stay :)

    Xenoula2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, cosy and comfortable cottage with lots of character indeed. Communication with Ben great. Checkin no problem. Everything perfectly in order and super toasty when we arrived. Had a great stay. 10 out of 10.

    Ann Louise2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We rented Ben's Place for a few days in January and weren't disappointed. Finding it was quite straightforward although, as Ben says, it is in a very small hamlet so make sure you have been shopping beforehand. I thought I might be cold at night but a wealth of little extras ensured I wasn't - hot water bottles, log burner and plenty of blankets. The double bed was one of the comfiest I'd slept in. Location is quite beautiful with a babbling stream to the front and lots of birds in the bushes behind. Didn't miss not having phone reception. If you drive to Edinburgh you have to travel across the Lammermuir Hills which are breathtaking by day but not for faint-hearted drivers, particularly at night!

    Samantha2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Ben’s cottage is one of those Airbnb’s that make you feel so lucky to have stayed in as a guest. The space itself coupled with the area was really incredible. We had a fantastic time in Longformacus, there’s so much to do nearby either driving or walking. We found plenty of walks around nearby for the dog. Check in was simple, the property was impressively clean and warm when we arrived. The kitchen has everything you could need, we loved the space upstairs and the views of plants and birds from the windows. As other guests have mentioned, crumpets, butter and jam are left which is a really thoughtful touch, as well as hot water bottles, blankets and board games.

    Rachel2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderfully restored stable building executed with exceptional taste that combines soft modern minimalism with a tasteful splash of Victorian indulgence.

    Jamie2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • We were absolutely blown away by The Stable and all of the thoughtful touches thought the home. We loved the attention to detail expressed thought the home. How the base boards and kitchen fittings were cut to match the rugged stable walls. How old hinges were in the sides of doorways and windows. The underfloor heating. The instant boil tap and beautiful bathroom fittings. Everywhere I looked in the home I saw thought and care. The home was exceptionally clean as well. Glasses in a row. No dust to be found anywhere. Linnons neatly folded, rolled, & bundled. The Stable is a beautiful location for a getaway or wedding. Whatever reason you may be looking to stay here it will be time and money well spent.

    Nathan2019-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at the stables! Located just across from Brinkburn Priory it’s set in a quiet, rural location. The house is beautifully decorated with a great kitchen dining room. We also really appreciated the welcome basket on arrival. Thanks to Mark for being an excellent host.

    Sarah2018-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic property in a lovely location. Great touches such as tea, coffee, milk etc on arrival. Very helpful owners (as well as their staff members). We very much hope to return.

    Jane2018-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The question shouldn’t be why but why not! The Stables is a truly five star place in an enchanting setting. The accommodation is even better that the pictures shown and the hosts go above and beyond with a gorgeous welcome pack, flowers and all the extras we needed for our family stay. We have one year old twins and two other young children and we found the accommodation perfectly child friendly. We will definitely be booking again.

    Cheryl2018-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • I love people who go the extra mile. I love people who create brilliant environments and I love people who make an effort. Mark and Co have nailed it. The conversion of this old building is astonishingly good. The furnishings, the beautiful dream like natural landscape and environment is heavenly. Every single thing about this place is utterly brilliant. My only gripe is..we had to return home. We will miss this magical place. Thank you to Mark, his wife and his staff for everything. Kind regards, Steve Bothwell, Café 52, Aberdeen.

    Steve2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • I spent a long weekend here in November with extended family. Stunning stable conversion nestled at the bottom of a long driveway on the banks of the river next to an English Heritage priory. Beautiful double height kitchen/dining living space with floor to ceiling windows overlooking and opening onto a courtyard. Wood burners in both living spaces. Good size to large bedrooms with very comfortable beds, nice towels, bathrooms, bathrobes, soap.... It was somewhere between a high end spa retreat and something out of an episode of grand designs. Mark and his staff very helpful throughout. Highly recommended.

  • Wonderful relaxing stay. The walk to Cuthberts cave from the front door was a nice surprise. Not too far from Bambrugh and Holy Island approx 15 mins in the car. The cottage itself is beautiful, amazing bed! Louise is extremely helpful and would love to revisit the area again.

    Greg2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cosy hideaway in a beautiful, rural location. St cuthbert’s cave is within walking distance and the cottage is also close to stunning coastlines and the cheviots. Little touches like wine and snacks, toiletries, robes and nespresso coffee machine made the trip extra special. We loved the hot tub and wood fire to warm up after a day of walking. Best of all the cottage is dog friendly so our puppy could join in the fun too!

    Lisa2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    James2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely cottage in a quiet and rural area. The cottage was very clean and came with Instructions on how to use various appliances around the house. The house and it’s facilities were great and came with everything you needed (even washing machine and tumble dryer) along with a few nice touches of a bottle of wine and crisps, etc. Louise was very helpful with replies and came round within a few minutes to help with any issues, as well as giving us a map route for a nearby walk. Had a brilliant sleep every night due to how amazingly comfy the bed was and how silent the surrounding areas were. The WiFi however can be a bit temperamental but it’s a good chance to get away from it all and relax Overall had a great stay and couldn’t recommend it more.

    Sofia2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Second time staying here - we loved it the first time and it was just as good the second time around. Loved the hot tub, and all the little extras (like robes, towels, etc) were lovely. Louise was very helpful with a couple of questions we had, with quick responses. Already working out when we can next go back!!

It is perfect for a couple or a small family, with up to two dogs, looking for a cosy base to discover the delights of the Heritage Coastline.

Comfortably furnished, this bright cottage offers two bedrooms, one double and one bunk and a bathroom with a bath for those long soaks after a tiring day on the beach. There is also a shower. A small fitted kitchen and bright sitting room with woodburning stove, TV with freeview and DVD player, books, board games, DVDs and wifi complete this pretty cottage. Why not take a trip Alnwick Castle and Gardens, or discover one of the many coastal walks taking in a pint and a crab sandwich somewhere along the way, the golden beaches are endless and waiting to be discovered. This Amble cottage is perfect for exploring Northumberland and the surrounding area.
    I moved to Amble by the Sea five years ago and I just love it! Here are just a few things; 1. A proper working harbour with sea going boats..when they land the fish, gulls whirl about to see what they can steal and there’s a beach to meander on. There are boats for hire to see Coquet Island..a bird sanctuary about a mile off the coast ...or for fishing trips, at the Harbour too. 2. A lovely, picturesque Marina to have a walk around with a nice bar, with views going up to Warkworth one way and down to the pier the other. Great place to take sunset photos. 3. Last year, Amble won the best coastal High Street. We have a great selection of shops and , at a time when some High Streets are declining, we’re expanding. 4. The Pods..these are upended boats made into little, cute craft and artisan shops. Located at the Harbour, round the corner from the cottage. 5. Great restaurants on the doorstep! No taxi required. The Boatyard has won awards for the last 2 years as the best fish restaurant in the U.K. 6. A good selection of pubs and coffee shops. A new cafe bar has just opened at the Harbour serving terrific food. 7. Lovely walks..by the sea or in the country..Amble is also very cycle friendly..hire bikes are available locally. Kayaks and surf/paddle boards are also available for hire. 8. Golden beaches that stretch for miles...even in the Summer you can find stretches of beach with no one else there! 9. Lots of local picturesque villages..castles..secluded bays..nice pubs..great restaurants..all within a few miles of Amble by the Sea. 10. And ..the greatest Northumberland foible...you can’t go anywhere without people saying ‘hello’ to you. Amble by the Sea isn’t called ‘the friendliest port’ for nothing!
  • Di's cottage is really lovely. Warm and cosy, spotlessly clean and in a brilliant location for making the most of Amble and the Northumberland coast. Communication with Di was great, and she provided lots of ideas and tips for places to visit. We went to some great seafood restaurants just round the corner, had icecream at Spurreli's, local beer at the Cock and Bull micro pub, saw red squirrels and a vast range of birds at the Hauxley nature reserve, and a lovely walk up the coast to Alnwick via Warkworth castle. Couldn't ask for any more!

    Lara2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our second time staying at Dovecote Corner and it did not disappoint! The cottage has everything you’ll need and its so cosy. Such a lovely place to stay after a long walk along the beach, the log burner is perfect!! Thanks so much to Diane for another great stay, we hope to be back in the near future and hopefully for longer next time :)

    Hannah2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place to stay and explore Northumberland from! Felt like a home from home straight away!

  • Very cosy cottage in a quiet location - well appointed and very clean. Would recommend.

    Karen2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great quirky base to explore Amble and the surrounding areas. Di was very helpful in giving tips for dog friendly places to eat. There are nice little welcome touches like fresh milk biccies and logs for the cosy fire which you can chill in front of after a busy day walking eating and drinking. Literally a few minutes walk to the centre and harbour and lots of little gems a short walk or drive away. We have completely fallen in love with Amble and even looked on Rightmove haha. Highly recommend - thanks for a fab stay Jo Nick & Freddie the poo xx

Everything from a picturesque views of the country to the cozy and homely touches and decor inside and of course the hot tub was honestly just amazing. Neil couldn’t of been more helpful in communicating quickly and giving us information of what we need to know on arrival to then letting us enjoy our stay but only being a call or message away if needed. We will definitely be coming back in the future!

    Sam2019-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is a delight from start to finish. The situation is unique alongside the river and with the abbey nearby, with walks straight from the front door of the cottage. We loved star gazing on a couple of nights and bird watching/listening just along the path. It is finished to a high spec, lovely and warm with underfloor heating and a very comfy lounge where you can kick back and relax very easily. It is very spacious. There is everything you could need in the kitchen and all really good quality and the goodies hamper was delicious. When we needed a lock sorting out someone was round really quickly. And when we needed assistance when my husband became unwell Mark was down straight away and we had support from Carol and the cleaning team as well and also from The English Heritage staff member at The Abbey. I cannot recommend this property and Mark and his team too highly

  • We had a wonderful stay at the spacious Boathouse. We were kept entertained by the many things to do in the area, but all looked forward to returning to the Boathouse each afternoon to relax. The beds were so comfortable that our children slept past 7am each day, which is unheard of! Our five-year-old said he wanted to stay 'forever' which is endorsement indeed! We particularly enjoyed watching the birds in the garden and listening to the babbling stream, and the children loved playing with the outdoor games equipment. A tranquil, restorative place.

    Alun2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very tidy and lovely modern cottage, equipped with everything you need. The back garden was very peaceful with great views for us and also good place for our dog to enjoy.

  • Beautiful little location in Riding Mill, short drive to the Roman homesteads and Hadrian’s wall which was beautifully scenic and tranquil. The boathouse is exquisite with soft comfy beds and spacious bathrooms. Had to cut the trip short due to car trouble, but looking forward to staying again.

    Tom2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Boathouse is a stylish, warm and contemporary living space. It is set in a garden, next to our host's home, in a quiet and peaceful cul de sac. It's located a short drive away from the delightful village of Corbridge. We were pleased with the dog friendly approach of our host and the many local options for spending time with our pet Greyhound.

  • The Little Blue Hut was a fantastic get away, Andrew was brilliant left us to have our own space but was there to help when we needed it. He let us check out later on the Sunday as he had no one else arriving and there was a bad storm which was really nice of him. The Hut is really well designed myself my partner and our dog Bodhi enjoyed every minute of our stay. Definitely recommend staying here.

    Kai2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely, quiet and secluded place to stay. We went as a family to spend some quality time together and that’s exactly what we did. We only left the lodge area for Sunday lunch - but the rest of the time our family (2 young kids, parents and grandparents) were in and around the place enjoying walks, playground, scenery, games, balcony etc. Would recommend to all and especially for those looking for a quiet retreat. Jess was great as a host with communication pre-trip and contacting us on leaving day to stay longer due to snowfall and road conditions - she said stay as long as needed until safe to travel. Thanks for that Jess (Snow made the view lovely but roads a little slippery)

    Riverside Cottage was built around 1895 by the Duke of Northumberland. The area surrounding West Thirston and indeed the whole of Northumberland is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Village of West Thirston is separated from the village of Felton by the River Coquet that runs in front of the Cottage. Spanning the River Coquet are two bridges: Felton old bridge (pictured right) and Felton new bridge. The old bridge has now been pedestrianised and is scheduled as an ancient monument and as a building of architectural and historic interest. There is no definite date for this old bridge, but it or an even older bridge may have existed here since the 13th century. Whatever the date, it is a fine old bridge of three arches, Grade 2 listed, and widened at some time on the upstream side, probably in the 1800s. The new replacement bridge was built in 1926 and although not considered to be as attractive as the old bridge, it is itself a grade II listed construction. Even the telephone box next to the old bridge is grade II listed! Just over the bridge from Riverside Cottage is The Running Fox, a small, chic establishment nestled by the River Coquet. As well as offering it's own uniquely crafted cafe menu there is a new bakery on-site which serves a wide range of artisan breads, signature pies, traditional cakes and scones.

Lovely welcoming touches from host Andrew and we enjoyed watching the little birds out the back! Really lovely facilities, all to a very high standard. Everything you could expect at home and better!

  • We loved the cottage. Well furnished, good quality linen and the pocket sprung bed was as comfortable as our bed at home which we’ve never has before at any cottage we’ve stayed in. The welcome hamper was excellent. Kitchen was well equipped and everywhere was very clean. The nearby Running Fox cafe and bakery, the Foxes Den and The Northumberland Arms are all worth a visit.

  • Julia's cottage is really lovely and she is a brilliant host. We walked her dogs with her on our first day, showing us which walks to go on and we met and stroked the animals she has around the place which pleased my 10 year old very much! The cottage is cute with comfy beds and lots of charm. The best bit is the location - very remote and beautiful views from every window. Absolutely lovely.

    Vicky2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • It was a lovely cottage which was very comfortable, cosy and homely. Julia was also really helpful. We would definitely go back.

    david2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Julia is a wonderful host - just right in terms of checking everything is ok, and open offer to help with anything we’d forgotten. The cottage is utterly charming and a haven in the countryside. Cosy and rustic, but full of modern amenities.

    Fiona2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • A comfy property, extremely remote, lots of animals around you, definately off the beaten track, fabulous walking area, very picturesque, a lovely get away.

    Tim2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely countryside cottage with comfy beds, great views and a sweet little town just down the road. Would recommend

    Samantha2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Knockburn cottage was an absolutely wonderful break away, the cottage is super cosy and comfortable especially at this time of year. Having the fire lit in the evening was a really nice treat. The bed is extremely comfortable and we slept like babies! There are lovely little touches like fluffy dressing gowns, slippers and an honesty box of local goodies (we unfortunately didn't bring any cash for it but there were some delicious looking things in there!). We didn't have much trouble finding the place as Julia sent extensive directions. There isn't any wifi and phone signal is touch and go but that was part of the charm. The kitchen had every appliance and utensil we needed for cooking & baking as well as basic necessities like oil, salt & pepper. We had an amazing time and are definitely planning on coming back!

    A romantic, rural retreat for couples wanting to get away from it all. Set entirely within an acre of private grounds, St Bede is a cleverly converted 'hemmel' cottage providing compact modern accommodation in a contemporarily stylish, light & airy setting. St Bede is an ideal base to explore the stunning Northumberland county with it's panoramic beaches, spectacular castles & breathtaking moorlands. St Bede has a private courtyard, a great place to sit out & enjoy the surrounding landscape.
    At a glance, will St Bede work for you ? -The ground floor compromises studio style accommodation with a living area, kitchen & bathroom. -The main sleeping area is accessed via a spiral staircase to the mezzanine where there is a double bed. -Broadband wifi throughout the property. -Off road parking. -No pets allowed. -Northumberland was voted the best UK holiday county in the 2018 British Travel Awards. -Upon arrival at St Bede our guests receive a welcome pack as well as complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits & milk to get their stay underway. Bed linen, towels & tea towels are also provided. -Private setting with adjacent cottages also available through Airbnb to rent.
    -St Bede at The Old Mill is located in the small hamlet of Littlemill, four miles north east of Alnwick. -Please be considerate when entering & leaving the hamlet to your fellow neighbours, both human & animal ! -The cottage is situated halfway between Alnwick & Craster so is perfectly placed for guests to visit the fantastic coastal spots, castles & stunning Northumberland National Park which are all within easy travelling distance by car. -Craster on the beautiful heritage coastal route is only 2.5 miles away, the picturesque fishing village is world famous for it's smoked kippers & the glorious walk from it's harbour to Dunstanburgh Castle. -Howick Hall Gardens are nearby & well worth a visit, with banks of rhododendrons, camellias & magnolias in the springtime. -A visit to Holy Island, which is reached via a tidal causeway & is famous for the Lindisfarne Gospels, is a must. -Don't forget the pretty village of Bamburgh with its majestic castle overlooking the expansive sandy beach. -Alnwick Castle & Garden, with its spectacular grand cascade waterfall & tree house restaurant, are 4 miles away. St Bede & The Old Mill-A potted history. -As the name suggests The Old Mill was once a water mill & the remains of the mill wheel can be seen at the rear of the property. -If you look to the left while facing the building you will see a field which was once the site of a medieval village known as 'Little Houghton'. Corn mills were a common feature of such villages, so it is likely that a mill has stood at this location since this time. The name 'Little Houghton' was later reused & today there is a nearby village known by the same name. The earliest the mill buildings appear on a map is around 1820. -The lime kiln (Grade 2 listed) on the opposite side of the road approaching the hamlet of Little Mill would have been a large local employer when in use. Extraction started in the 18th century & it was one of the largest in the country with it's own railway siding. The limestone was burnt with coal to produce quicklime for use in fertiliser & mortar. -There was once a railway station at Little Mill (1847 to 1965), families from Gateshead & Newcastle enjoyed holidays in nearby Craster, alighting at Little Mill & walking with their luggage the two miles down to the coastal village. -The Old Mill building was derelict until purchased from the local land owning Howick family in the late 1980's & was subsequently bought by an order of the Catholic church known as the 'Helpers of the Holy Souls' & run by nuns as a retreat. Local legend has it that Maxine Carr, accomplice to the Soham murders, resided here on her release from prison under a new identity. -The two smaller cottages (known as 'hemmels'), St Bede & St Cuthbert were once the home of farm animals but were converted in 2001. In fact, the word 'hemmel' means a simple shelter in a field for cattle or hay. -The current owner bought the house in 2007 & in 2017 extensively renovated the property to make the accommodation more comfortable as well as securing the fabric of the building & outlying grounds for future generations. -Please 'like' our page on the 'Book of Face' in order to be kept up to date with all things with regard to St Bede & Northumberland.

  • For a late thought and last minute idea for a few days away during half term for my daughter, Patrick's place exceeded all expectations,we even got a bigger cabin than we'd booked, The setting was a lovely and quiet getaway from it all type of place, the cabin was fantastic, clean and well equipped and to sit in a lovely hot tub on a very cold but clear February night and be able to stare at the stars was a memory for ever. Patrick is a fantastic host, cheerful and helpful with great comunication including suggesting places to visit during our stay. The park itself even has a bar/restaurant on site if you don't want to venture out. Shopping is a drive away so bear that in mind but we will definitely be making a return visit

    Darren2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Patrick is very helpful and responsive. The place itself is fantastic, enjoyed it immensely. It's very cosy and the hot tub is wonderful with views over the lake. Will definitely be back.

    Shaun2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Me and 3 friends went and we all loved it cozy comfortable clean quiet the views from cabin so beautiful, would recommend this to anyone, we were goin to go site seeing nearby but we ended up just relaxing in the hot tub and around the cabin feeling content and peaceful, will definitely go back sometime, and the host Patrick was very nice and helpful man, money well spent 👍

    Shaun2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great log cabin by the lake. Location is ideal next to the A1 (quite literally!). Lovely touches inside including fresh baked bread and small hamper of goodies. Christmas decorations were a nice touch (we stayed mid-December) and the hot tub was lovely and relaxing. Cabin was a good size for a couple or small family. Alnwick only 10 minutes away too.

    Alexander2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely resort, nice view. Wonderful place to relax.

    Eduard2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleased with our weekend at the lodge - great place to stay, very clean and homely. We especially loved the hot tub! Patrick was particularly helpful - would definitely recommend a stay here! 😊

    Emma2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Located just off the A1, Fontburn is far enough removed that you don't feel like you're near a busy main road, but accessing it is no problem. Thanks to previous guests checking out on time and a quick turn around by the cleaning crew our group of 5 was able to settle into our cabin a little earlier than stated. Fontburn was clean, cosy and gave off an incredibly warm feeling, with a lovely view of the lake to match. Patrick was a great, gracious host and always stopped by in the morning to clean the hot tub and offer suggestions of what we could do that day. The few issues we had was resolved by Patrick quickly and with a happy manner. The beds were comfy and clean, and we slept solidly during our time there. We loved our time at the cabin whether we were using the hot tub or settling down for a night of games and we hope to return soon to experience the calm!

    Louise2019-04-22T00:00:00Z

    Riding Hills Farm is a cosy, attractive and well equipped one bedroomed cottage situated in one of the prettiest and most interesting parts of Northumberland. Within two miles of the historic town of Corbridge, this comfortable cottage is tucked away in a rural location with stunning views over the Tyne Valley. Despite its rural setting it is close to some excellent pubs and restaurants, and the market town of Hexham.
    The cottage is attached to our farmhouse with a private entrance and enclosed garden, and is situated in just under an acre of grounds with many excellent walks and places to visit nearby. We are close to several key Roman sites in the area including Corstopitum and Hadrian’s Wall. Newcastle is 18 miles away and the stunning Northumberland coastline is only a little further.
    Our cottage is situated above the beautiful Tyne Valley, and from your garden there are stunning views to enjoy over an alfresco lunch or evening drink. The enclosed garden is exclusively for the use of our guests and you are free to help yourselves to any garden produce in season including raspberries, blackcurrants and rhubarb. Our nearest village, Corbridge, has a multitude of lovely cafes and interesting shops to explore, not to mention several very good pubs and restaurants, all of which are listed in our cottage guide along with much other useful information.
  • A lovely and cosy cottage with homely finishing touches, including eggs from Debbie and Duncan's chickens and some damson jam on arrival! We were made to feel really welcome and had everything we needed in the house - the bath and shower were amazing! The cottage was also very clean and the location was great. Lots to see and do in the area.

    Hannah2019-11-12T00:00:00Z

The cottage is clean and clomfortable with lots of individual touches. Debbie and Duncan were great hosts, left a lovely welcome package and were very helpful. Will be back again.

    Rhiannon2019-10-18T00:00:00Z

    Maryam2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious cottage with great views. Although you can walk into Corbridge, it takes about 30 minutes and there are lengths of the main road that have no pavements, so you need to be wary of traffic. There is a reliable half-hourly bus service into Corbridge and Hexham going west, and into Newcastle going east. Both bus stops are a 5-minute walk from the cottage, on the main road.

    Mac2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truely magical, the bathroom was incredible both the bath and the shower were special features, the kitchen is a very decent size, everything about this place exceeds expectation, both Debbie and Duncan will go above and beyond to offer any help you need. The scenic beauty and the silence and peace is emotionally transforming. I was truely sad to leave and will definatley be back. Thank you Both Debbie and Duncan for being such outstanding hosts. Xxx I cannot recommend this place enough!!!

The property is perfectly placed for exploring the nearby towns of Melrose, Jedburgh and Kelso.

We have horse stables and a riding school which can be used by the guests by arrangement. Riding lessons are available from a 4* eventer and we have fantastic rides around our farm.
  • Brilliant place to stay, very homely. Wish we could’ve stayed longer to explore the surrounding area, we will be back in the summer

    Iona2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing service! The personal touches such as, fresh eggs from the farm, homemade sausage and jam made the experience even more special! It was extremely clean.

    Nikki2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time away at John and Dots. Lovely home touches and everything you could need for a lovely rural retreat. The spa bath was wonderful at night time under the stars and the homemade sausages were to die for! Even if the weather is bad (hello storm Dennis) there's plenty of board games to play in front of the fire and relax.

    Imogen2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • John's cottage was lovely - so many nice touches, such as flowers everywhere, home-made sausages, biscuits, and a welcome note from John and Dot. The cottage was much bigger than I thought it would be, and well-kept. The log fire was a definite bonus too, it kept the living room so toasty and warm. Storm Ciara meant that we only really used the outdoor tub and sauna on the first night - serves us right for booking a weekend in February! The location was nice and remote, making this property excellent for anyone wanting a peaceful break and privacy. It's well-located for anyone wanting to explore Jedburgh, Kelso or Melrose. We booked an alpaca trek at Beirhope Alpacas, which was about half an hour away, and I'd highly recommend it. The cottage has all mod-cons, including wifi and a TV with a firestick, the kitchen has all the equipment and utensils you'll need. Thanks again John - it was a shame I didn't get a chance to explore more of the area by foot, hopefully next time the weather will be a bit kinder.

    Phil2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Honeymoon Cottage is perfect for a peaceful getaway in the countryside. Extra little touches by John and Dot make it feel very homely. The cottage is clean and the amenities are everything we could have wished for. John and Dot were great hosts and very quick to respond to any queries we had. Would highly recommend the place for a trip away to unwind!

    Eleanor2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage. Lovely get away in the countryside! Shame about the weather, but we made the most of it! Outside bath was lovely however disappointed we missed out on the sauna as it was being replaced as we left! Will definitely come again in summer! Thanks again, Callum & Kirsty

  • Just had three amazing nights in the countryman... it did not disappoint! Fantastic views, perfectly private hot tub and deck area. The pods are beautifully furnished with homely touches. Brilliant location for exploring the local areas such as Kielder park and hadrians wall!! We will definitely visit again

    Linda2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and accommodation with friendly hosts. Loved getting out the city and into the middle of the country and the hot tub was a great wee bonus even in the middle of a storm! Hosts were so accommodating of our toddler and dog, providing a cot and high chair and making us all feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend!

    Naomi2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely pod. Will be back!

    Hannah2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was truly one of our most memorable and amazing weekend breaks, one that won't be forgotten. Neil, thank you so so much for the hospitality you was amazing. We will definitely be back again soon. Can't speak highly enough about the experience. We will definitely be recommending you to others. Only thing I would say is the pictures you have online for the pods and the surrounding area do not do it justice at all. The pods are stunning, brilliantly designed and built and the perfect size. You truly feel like you're the only people there. And even though all the pods were occupied we didn't hear or see anyone else. Secluded and truly beautiful. Can't wait to come back

    Geraint2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING! Perfect for couples, really lovely local town with nice pubs! We loved it and can’t wait to return. Really easy going, friendly hosts who were more than happy to help with any problems. Can tell the hosts have worked really hard to create an amazing experience, highly recommend.

  • Lovely little cottage surrounded by gorgeous countryside. Feels remote despite being easily accessible by car. Beautiful views of the dramatic Simonside Hills, which you can walk up to straight from the door. Melanie was a great host - we especially loved all the nice cosy touches in the cottage and the fantastic stove. Highly recommend!

    Sam2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend this stay. The fire was lit and lights on for our arrival on a horrid winters night there was also cake on the side and milk in fridge. The location is beautiful with access to simonside at the top and the wetlands at the bottom of the valley, perfect for walkers and dogs. The cottage has everything you need to be self sufficient as there’s shops in Rothbury for ingredients and plenty of places to eat out if not. The weather was 80mph winds with rain on one of our evenings and we felt safe and warm in by the fire. Will most certainly be back again.

    Callum2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • A great location for a complete getaway. Lovely fire on arrival and supplies to make your own. Had everything I needed. As it’s a working farm and winter boots are good. Lots of little touches. Would recommend and will be back. Thank you.

    Lynne2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here. Especially loved the log fire! Great location for exploring Simonside and Cragside.

  • Really fantastic short break cottage really nice and views fantastic, the thought gone into this cottage is fantastic. Arrived to a nice cosy fire already lit for us and music playing, and some nice treats for us in fridge.

    Laura2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay here. We were sent all the necessary information (and more) prior to out stay so our arrival was made extremely easy. The information folders in the accommodation ensured that our stay ran smoothly. The accommodation is immaculately clean and very well equipped. We have also had excellent follow up service after stupidly leaving some items in the accommodation. We would definitely recommend this accommodation.

    Marie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Debs are wonderful hosts. We had a fantastic time at their place! Everything was perfect and the hot tub in the snow was the icing on the cake! Our three boys loved it, and there was lots for them to see and do all around. We shall definitely be recommending this amazing place to our friends and hopefully be back ourselves in the not too distant future. Many thanks Richard and Debs.

  • We had a lovely, quiet new year’s stay in a Plum Tree cottage. The cottage itself is very cosy, perfect for a romantic couple of days away. The fairy lights made it feel festive, and the view from the bedroom was spectacular! We slept with the door open as we were warm, and it was amazing to be able to look out and see the stars! The wine and chocolates upon arrival were hugely appreciated too! Our request for towels was quickly met by Archie, and we knew where the hosts were should we have needed anything else. Thanks for a lovely trip!

    Emma2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Plum Tree Cottage is set in an absolutely beautiful location, and the cottage itself is lovely and homely. I told Maggie that I was to propose on our stay, so when we arrived she had the fire roaring, 2 bunches of flowers and a bottle of cava on ice for us, which i did not expect at all. We spent the days visiting Smailholm Tower, floors castle and Scott’s View, and the evenings playing board games next to the fire. Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect cottage and location. Lots to do in the local area, and fantastic hospitality. Will be sure to visit again.

    Philip2018-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really lovely stay at Plum Tree cottage. Maggie and Archie were great hosts - communication was really good in the lead up to our stay, Archie came to check all was ok when we arrived, and we knew we could contact them if we needed anything during our stay. The cottage is cosy and comfortable, really nicely done. It had everything we needed, and the views from the living room and bedroom are so lovely. We enjoyed relaxing in the cottage and exploring the local area. We would definitely return!

    Hannah2018-10-20T00:00:00Z

Alternatively further details can be found in the cottage during your stay.
    The cottage sits just 3.5 miles from Cornhill-on-Tweed which has an excellent village shop selling a super selection of fresh local produce, including picnic hampers and scrummy home baking. It is also home to the highly regarded Collingwood Arms which has a pub as well as a superb restaurant for lingering lunches or fine evening dining. Alternatively, pop your wellies on and take a fifteen minute stroll over the field and woodland margins to the popular Bluebell Inn for a relaxing drink after supper. A more extensive range of shops, pubs and cafes can be found in the quaint market town of Coldstream (5 miles) where the shopping is small and friendly with a good mix of independent outlets running the length of the High Street, including a family butchers, fruit and veg shop, bakery and small Co-op supermarket for holiday provisions. The Coldstream Gallery is a lovely spot to browse art, ceramics and jewellery by local designers; or pop into Calico Interiors for lifestyle gifts and accessories before coffee and cake at the charmingly named ‘Mad Hatter’ nearby. A number of larger supermarkets, including a Marks & Spencers food outlet can be found in the historic town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (13 miles), or picturesque Kelso (14 miles) which has an excellent selection of independent shops set around a Flemish style market square. The cottage is located in the heart of North Northumberland and is exceptionally well placed for exploring the wider area. Seven miles in one direction will take you to the edge of the Northumberland National Park, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty with over 400 square miles of stunning landscapes, criss-crossed by over 700 miles of walking, biking and riding trails which follow the routes of ancient cattle drovers, taking in Iron Age stone fortifications and traces of Bronze Age hillforts amidst the tranquil and rugged landscape. Hop into your walking boots and you can join Northumberland Park Rangers for a guided walk from Wooler where you will learn much about the heritage and wildlife of the area, or follow sections of St. Cuthbert’s Way and enjoy some outstanding vistas along the route as it winds its way to the dune-fringed sands on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. For cycling, you will find everything from gentle low-level meanders to big hill country treks, including long-distance routes such as the Pennine Cycleway or the cycle challenges of the Wooler Wheel Hub. For families, the Breamish Valley is a popular area with pretty river picnic spots where children can paddle, followed by a walk to the lovely waterfall at Linhope Spout where you may even spot some wild Cheviot goats along the way. Alternatively, a warm welcome awaits you at Ford & Etal Estates (3 miles) which has a super range of family friendly activities with over twenty attractions to explore. Take a ride on Bunty on the very charming 15” gauge steam railway, follow the mouse trail around the Heatherslaw Corn mill or there is fishing, canoeing, cycle hire and a riding centre all nearby. For art lovers, a must-visit is the pre-Raphaelite murals at the Lady Waterford Hall, or explore the ruins of Etal Castle or the local heritage sites of nearby Flodden or Duddo Standing Stones, Northumberland’s equivalent of Stonehenge. The stunning heritage coastline is just a short half-hour drive away with miles of pristine sandy beaches, jolly pubs serving the freshest fish and chips, and picture postcard coastal villages with charming galleries and gift shops. Experience the exhilarating thrill of kitesurfing at Bamburgh, coasteering at Beadnell or perhaps just the simple pleasures of a picnic and a game of beach cricket on sands which remain almost deserted even in the summer months. History buffs will be enchanted by the rich heritage of the area, where dramatic castles and grand stately homes punctuate the landscape here, including imposing Bamburgh perched on its rocky outcrop above Bamburgh Beach; Alnwick, star of the Harry Potter films; or Chillingham, said to be the most haunted castle in Britain and home to the only wild cattle in the world. Fishing is available on the River Till about a ten minute drive and is one of the area's best kept secrets with an impressive sea trout run each spring said to be the best in the country. Trout permits are available for as little as £5 per day and rods, reels and waders can be hired locally.
  • We loved this beautiful little spot! Home away from home :)

    Angela2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • I would definitely recommend this cottage. It is tastefully renovated, and extremely well equipped. it is in a lovely rural spot, a real retreat away from it all. We had a very quick and helpful response from the hosts when we had additional needs. it was faultless, we loved our stay! perfect for two people and a dog.

    Caroline2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This wonderful, well-equipped cottage is just perfect to discover the beautiful landscapes of Northumberland and the Scottish borders. It is a tranquil, inspiring place, ideal to relax and enjoy your holiday.

    Jan2018-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little house for two - plus dog. Beautifully presented, great location. So quiet and peaceful. Welcome pack with home made goodies was a bonus. We made trips to Lindisfarne, Berwick, a boat trip to the Farne Islands and to the battle site at Flodden Field. The Collingwood Arms at Cornhill-on-Tweed and The Border at Kirk Yetholm are well worth a visit to eat in the evening. Very relaxing few days.

    Nicholas2017-08-18T00:00:00Z

    Brian2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent two nights in The Secret Garden. The lodge was immaculately clean with lovely soft fluffy towels and robes. ( I’m very fussy). Alan and Olga’s communication before and during our stay was very impressive. We were welcomed with biscuits and a bottle of wine. It was great to have the American fridge freezer with an ice maker. The site itself is very calm and quiet. There is an on-site bar/pub/saloon but we didn’t try it. The hot tub area is very quiet and secluded. It was lovely and restful. They do have a sofa bed in the lounge, it’s not super comfortable but okay for a couple of nights if sharing the double bed isn’t practical. You may have to request extra bedding, we did and Olga delivered it within half an hour. Thank you Olga, much appreciated. Couldn’t fault anything about this place. Very impressed with the forceful shower in the en suite. Thanks again and for the extended check out time. Fab place and super hosts. .

    Angela2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A real hidden gem. Alan is really quick to reply and gave some great places to visit. Great for the dog as its all fenced off. Lovely hot tub and all you need for a weekend away. Crazy horse saloon is a great place for a meal and breakfast. Great stay
