“Excellent stay at the Yethouse”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My son and I have just had an excellent week at the Yethouse. It's a fantastic holiday cottage in a beautiful part of the country, peaceful yet plenty to do. The cottage is spacious, very comfortable and brimming with interesting features - it has everything you need for a great break. This is our 2nd visit and we will be back again next year I hope.

Thank you for your kind words. It is always a delight to welcome back returning guests knowing that you could have selected from millions of other choices. Thanks for coming, we look forward to seeing you again in the future - bring your bikes - motorised or pedal power, either offers fantastic breathtaking scenery and quiet. Best wishes B

Thank you for taking time to write a review for us, we really appreciate your comments and absolutely agree that a night at the Kielder Observatory is a must see event. The silence is something we take for granted, its nice to be reminded just how special Yethouse is, thank you for that. Best wishes to all B
