We stayed for a week but wished it could have been so much longer. The place is small but has everything that you would need and more,it has a better kitchen than some of us have at home,they say that "small is more" and it is when stay here..the area is beautiful although there is always a lot of driving if you want to see lots but so worth it,the local pubs are well worth a visit,great beer and a friendly bunch of locals...look forward to visiting again.
The accommodation gives you everything you need from the small village of Bellingham right on your doorstep, but is quiet and cosy. The accommodation was clean and well equipped and the owners very friendly and helpful. We will definitely use this place again when we next visit Northumberland.
Everything you need for a lovely stay away from home, bed really comfortable, good shower and bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Compact but very comfortable, I wouldn`t hesitate to stay again. The village has everything you need, bakers, butchers, chemist, greengrocers and co op, the bakers was amazing, you have to try the beef & veg pasties and mince pies.
A delightful studio flat right in the centre of Bellingham, Co-op, ATM, Bakers, Butchers and a Grocers were virtually on the doorstep along with two public houses, a Hotel and a Petrol station, Street parking was not a problem, normally within 50 yards of the flat.
A cleverly designed interior made excellent use of the space within, which was very adequate for two people.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a well received bottle of Wine and Tea & coffee makings with fresh milk set the tone for a pleasant relaxing week.
We made use of the cooking facilities, enjoyed a Chinese takeaway and ate at the Riverdale Hall Hotel and would recommend either the Bar or Restaurant meals having tried both options.
Visits to Lindisfarne, Farne islands, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Wallington, Hexham, Kielder water and Housesteads Fort are all worthwhile, if I'm being critical driving is slow due to the lack of main roads but the views more than make up for that.
Jennifer was very attentive to our needs, even returning some clothes that we foolishly left hanging in the Wardrobe.
Many thanks for a lovely relaxing week, a nice base that would suit people wishing to Ramble, gorgeous views and countryside to match.
Perfect all round,and set in a busy village,with all the amenities you could ask for.
Everything thing you require is in the house,and a lovely touch with the wine,milk and biscuits.
Would definitely use again
