Beautiful cottage with stunning views, well equipped! Please note there are no curtains in the cottage, so if you don't like the sun in the mornings it could annoy you! The bathroom is amazing but the bath is very high with a shower in it, not really suitable for anyone who struggles to lift their legs. Our view over the beautiful countryside was slightly spoiled by 3 cars that were parked outside our patio all week. Didn't see the owners all week, not even a little welcome note (some people in the past have had welcome baskets, but assume this has stopped) the cottage was just left open for us. No inventory either. Still a beautiful place and a very comfy bed. We would come again
We stayed in the Lodge over Christmas.
The layout has been well thought out and has everything that we wanted for the stay, we were glad to see that the Lodge has a bath as it is not mentioned on Sykes Cottages, who we booked through.
The Lodge is in an excellent location and has wonderful views of the valley, even from indoors, with the blinds open.
The weather was as wet and windy as this Christmas has been and the Lodge kept us warm and cosy, we were not aware, when inside that there was a raging gale blowing outside.
On Christmas day we had a nice walk down into Wylam and along the Tyne for a short distance, and followed that up with a walk along the wall from Steel Rigg on Boxing day.
We were extremely satisfied and would consider the Lodge again if were are staying in the area.
