Thankyou for an extremely comfortable and enjoyable stay.  Gorgeous decor/colour scheme with lovely touches eg welcome basket, tea/coffee etc.  Having never been to the area before, enjoyed exploring.  A great touch to put local information into your welcome pack.  We would love to return when its cold enough to use the log fire and see a frosty starry night!  A truly memorable place to celebrate an 80th birthday.  Thank you xx

A perfect finale to our Northumberland holiday, love the cottage and the eco touches.  Very helpful having the walking guides.  Enjoyed exploring the area, including its 'Dark Skies'experience, though it was hard to drag my self away from the deck   Bike store a bonus.

We've had a wonderful few days staying at this beautiful cottage.  Welcome gifts much appreciated , a lovely touch ! Amazing views and so lovely to just sit and watch the birds.  The weather not so good so unfortunately didn't get to see the night skies.  Didn't stop us getting out for some lovely walks though.  The cottage and the decor is absolutely perfect.  Thank you for some "special memories"

Thank you for providing such a cosy, comfy & homely holiday cottage.  We love everything about it and the quality and range of furnishing and equipment.  The amazing view and wildlife completed a fabulous week and we love the welcome goodies.  The dogs loved the walks, we found so many and are all going home shattered - but in a good way from so much exercise.  Thank you Kath & Ken, we are sure your hosting is going to be a huge success.
