Our fourth visit to Tarset and have already booked for next year. I cannot agree with previous review about lack of welcome pack, toiletries etc. A welcome pack is not advertised so I would not expect one and there were sufficient products (washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc.) to get us started. It is self catering after all so we provided our own. The cottage is beautiful and we look forward to seeing the new one when it comes into use next year.

The cottage is lovely and sympathetically restored. The beds were comfortable. However, on the second morning in builders turned up, erected scaffolding and proceeded to dismantle the closely adjacent barn. They were using angle grinders and removing asbestos. They also left the gate open and our dog got out, although when told they were careful after that. The owners were away at the time and when they returned the work stopped but the scaffolding which was partly on the terrace of the cottage remained. They were also mean with the toiletries and cleaning products and the towels did not smell fresh. I was expecting a welcome pack with at the very least some milk but there was nothing. We did not get cakes but they gave us a bottle of wine as compensation. We should have been told about the work so that we could have made an informed decision about renting the property. On the plus side, it is lovely countryside and well placed for exploring the area. Despite the disappointment, we enjoyed our holiday.

We have just retuned from a week staying in this lovely cottage. It is a lovely redeveloped stable ideally based near Kielder and in good proximity to the surrounding towns/villages. The owners are very welcoming, giving you a treat on arrival. If you have any type of query they are prepared to help as much as they can. The cottage is clean, tidy and child friendly with all the amenities you require. We will certainly be returning in the near future!

Just spent 3 nights in Byres Cottage. The location is fantastic for Kielder. The cottage easily accommodated 6 adults and each room was ensuite. Highly recommend this farmhouse for short breaks in Northumberland
