A little piece of heaven in Northumberland

Stayed in The Dovecote for a week. Beautiful little cottage for 2 in the most stunning location. Very well equipped with everything we needed and more and attention paid to every last detail. Very comfortable bed made up with excellent quality linens. Fluffy towels and robes. The hydrotherapy bath was wonderfully relaxing at the end of the day. Warm freshly made loaf of bread on our arrival was yummy. Trysha and Graham's home made pizzas and chips were as good as any pizza we have eaten in Italy. We had a problem with the tumble dryer which was very promptly rectified by Graham. The guest lounge was a great idea. The Breamish valley is beautiful and is home to a huge variety of birdlife, some of which we fed just outside our door. Just a perfect holiday. Hope to return and try one of the other cottages in the future.

A fabulous holiday base

Caroline B,
We had a lovely week in the coach house. Everything we needed was provided in the cottage, the extensive information lounge and the attentive hosts. The setting is delightful and wonderfully peaceful. There are lovely walks from the door and up the beautiful valley and it's easy to get to Alnwick and the coast.. Lovely home-made pizzas were a treat.

5* comfort in the remote open countryside of Northumberland

Fabulous week in the most beautiful surroundings imaginable. We know Northumberland well and although we visit infrequently, it still must surely remain one of the most unspoiled gems of the English countryside. Nestled in the Breamish valley below Cheviot, not far from the Scottish border and yet only 20 mins from the stunning North Sea coast or the county town of Alnwick, you just couldn't ask for better walking, cycling, eating and drinking. Our hosts were supportive and helpful in a quiet almost unseen fashion and the Retreat was the perfect escape - beautifully renovated to a very high standard, modern attractive kitchen diner, lovely bedroom and huge ensuite bathroom with big bath & walk-in shower, spacious comfy lounge, modern TVs & sound amazing swim-spa pool and super-jacuzzi, just the business after a long day out on the fells. Rarely have we left a holiday location feeling so very relaxed. We hope to make it back there again despite our usual mantra of 'never go back in case it's not as good as last time'. This place will be!

Relaxing retreat in idyllic cottage

Nicola C,
First time staying at Cheviot Holiday Cottages but definitely will not be the last. Stayed four nights in Gate Lodge which is just the most beautiful cottage for two. Nothing has been overlooked in the aaccommodation and your stay is enhanced by the added extras such as flowers and chocolates, fresh soup and bread on arrival. Everything in the cottage is high spec and the bed was very comfortable with a fabulous mattress and top quality bedding. The cottage has an amazing sauna and also now a hot tub. There really is nothing that could be said negatively about this cottage. Also managed a sneaky peak in The Retreat which looks fab too. The cottages are set in the most beautiful tranquil countryside. Mountain and hybrid bikes are supplied or you can walk the Cheviot Hills straight from the door. Lots of wildlife too although didn't manage to see a red squirrel. If you like quality then this does not disappoint on any level.

Every help was extended to us to choose the right accommodation from the range available and from the moment we arrived everything was perfect. The Gate House is a modern house for couples, luxuriously appointed throughout and supplemented with flowers, home made soup and the option of a prepared meal for the weary traveler on arrival. Situated in the Northumbrian National Park the environment is delightfully peaceful, with dark skies, a wide range of wildlife using the garden and a spectacular coastline 40mins drive away. It has probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in and with a wet room shower and double bath essential after enjoying the infra red "instant" sauna that was heaven for old bones.
