We stayed in this cottage for 12 nights and explored the area, visiting Alnwick Castle, Warkworth Castle, Jedburgh, Beamish, Roman Army museum, Hadrians Wall and Vindolando and several NT properties. We also went for some long walks in Keilder forest which is nearby.
Bellingham is an ideal location and has everything you need for your stay, including a well stocked Co-op store, bakery, greengrocers, butchers, cafe, take away, hotel restaurant, post office, bookshop and petrol garage.
The accommodation was perfect for us, clean and cosy, plenty of hot water and very efficient heating, although we founnd we only needed it once when we got in cold and wet from a walk. There was everything we needed, including freezer and washing machine, dishwasher and plenty of mugs and glasses etc.
Jennifer had kindly left milk, wine, marmalade and honey for us. She proved to be a great hostess, changing bed linen half way through our stay and replenishing towels for the four of us. Jennifer even offered to dry our washing. She could not have been more helpful.
Highly recommend this uoside down cottage for a great stay in lovely Northumberland.
We had a great holiday at Castle Hill View,the cottage had everything you needed for a self catering holiday.
Wine, milk and cookies were waiting for us,a nice touch, the weather was perfect and the village had everything on the doorstep.
The cottage was spotless,a proper home from home and we said it was the best one we'd ever stayed in.
The upside down layout was brilliant as you got the views of the village from the upstairs.We hope to return in future because there's still a lot more of Northumberland we'd like to see.
Thank you Jennifer
Accomodation is on the high street in Bellingham. Close to the moors and not too far from the coast either. There was plenty of space and it was very clean and tidy. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.
The cottage is perfect as a base to explore the area. With gorgeous walks and lots of places to eat on your doorstep and kielder reservoir only 20mins away there is plenty for all ages to enjoy. The cottage was clean and well equipped and the welcome bottle went down a treat. Thankyou for a lovely stay
Had a dreadful journey here so it was wonderful to finally arrive at Jennifer's beautiful cottage. Tea, coffee, milk in the fridge, biscuits and a bottle of wine greeted us, most welcome. Everything you could need for a lovely holiday. Comfy sofas and bed, a compact yet functional kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal. Very useful to have a washing machine too and plenty of hot water. Will definitely recommend the cottage to family and friends.
Faultless, Castlehill View was just a home from home. Great base for exploring the Northumberland area. The cottage was so welcoming and spotlessly clean. Loved the upside down layout which made the most of the views from the open plan upstairs. Bellingham is a lovely place with everything that you need on your doorstep. We will definitely be back as we only scratched the surface of things that we wanted to do. Thank you Jennifer for a amazing stay.
