“Absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have just stayed here as a last minute break away and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We didn't book until later on in the day and Bev was very accommodating in allowing us to check in later at 8:30pm. Outstanding accommodation in a beautiful setting, so peaceful and relaxing. The cottage has all you'd need from utensils to washing liquid and the little touches are lovely. Can't wait to come back already. 1st class.

Gorgeous cottage, fantastic setting. This is the most wonderful little getaway near the lovely village of Witton Le Wear. Plum Tree has first class furnishings with it's own parking and is so welcoming, We can't wait to return. Thanks to Bev for all her help too.

“Idyllic”
Reviewed 18 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed here at the end of November & had a wonderful time. It was only for 2 night's unfortunately but would definitely love to return. The decor, location & all the small touches were faultless. The clear frosty nights to look enjoy the stars were an added bonus. The cottage is so tranquil but close enough to anything you could possibly need. Our 2 little dogs loved it too
Thank you

“Out of this World”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Outstanding location, cottage of extremely high standard with every need catered for. We were greeted by Bev who we warmed to immediately as she exuded warmth and hospitality. The tranquility of the surroundings , gentle sound of the river and the general ambience of this fantastic home from home fulfilled our every expectations. Our german shepherd was in his element and was left treats and spare towels if required , such thoughtfullness . River fishing is second to none , steps down to your favourite spot, and of course so many places to visit within striking distance , Northumberland,Cumbria, Yorkshire and Scotland .There are plenty of eateries to choose from, and cannot wait to book a summer trip so we can barbecue the partners catch .We enjoyed each and every day spent here but least of all disliked having to leave . Will most certainly return again .
