“Gorgeous quiet hideaway”

The Old Workshop doesn't disappoint - tucked away in a quiet location but in the heart of Bellingham on the edge of Kielder Water and Forest, it is immaculate.
We loved the peace and quiet, a rest from our busy city lives.
The finish is superb on all fixtures and fittings, the bedroom is big with a lovely comfortable bed and the softest of covers.
En suite bathroom is great with a powerful shower, would have loved a bath after a busy day walking and exploring, but this is a minor point!
Maxine was available if needed, but left us to enjoy our fabulous holiday in a beautiful location.
5 out of 5.

Reviewed 16 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Perfect little cottage in the heart of Bellingham. Had a great two night stay there earlier this month. The owners are lovely and the cottage is decorated beautifully. There's a great pub and cafe nearby for food and drinks. Everything you need for a great weekend in Northumberland!

Had a fab wee time staying in this gorgeous place. Only stayed for two days but could defo stayed on for a few more. So quiet n relaxing! Can't fault this place...was immaculate n perfect for a couple. The bed sheets are to die for n having Netflix was perfect for at night :) only one thing I'd change is the seating....a corner couch would have been perfect to cuddle up on however the wee window seat is just the cutest :) if staying here defo take a walk up Hareshaw Linn waterfall..so lovely. Also Kielder is like 25 mins drive away. So relaxing wish we were still there!

Just returned from a lovely weekend away staying at The Old Workshop - literally could not fault it!

Maxine, the owner, was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and the location is extremely convenient.

I would not hesitate in recommending the cottage and I definitely hope to return! Thanks Maxine!

This was our second trip to the old workshop and we were equally as impressed. The cottage is immaculate and beautifully decorated. Everything is provided which makes it so easy to pack!
The owners left us a bottle of wine and a ginger cake which was so appreciated and made our weekend even more special!
We spent the weekend relaxing, the local pup serves gorgeous food and there's a lovely Chinese takeaway up the road.
We look forward to returning again in the near future!
