We are just back from a very relaxing stay at the Boathouse in Riding Mill. The cottage is beautiful - very well equipped with modern decor and perfectly situated. Everything is brand new and every detail has been thought about - from the radio and large TV to the books on the bookshelf, games to play and lovely pictures on the walls. It is perfect for families - my son loved the garden and playing in the stream - but would suit couples perfectly too. The owners are right next door - perfect if you need them - however the cottage has its own private garden so really felt like our own space. Better than home from home - in fact this little cottage was much nicer than being at home!
The accommodation was spacious and tastefully furnished. The beds were really comfy and the shower facilities were very efficient. The large living/Kitchen area is well equipped with patio doors on to the decking with a grassed area leading to the stream. The setting is perfect, quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of public transport. We used both train and bus services. There is so much to see in the area for all age groups. Corbridge and Hexham are within easy reach with plenty of interesting shops and eating places. We had a relaxing and very comfortable stay in The Boathouse and I would certainly recommend it to my friends.
We had a great stay at the Boat House. The cottage was very spacious, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The lounge overlooks a large garden which leads down to the river. The two bedrooms were lovely with very comfortable beds and it was good to have 2 separate bathrooms. It is well located in an attractive village with easy access to Northumberland. We did some nice walks from the door and also used the train (the railway station is 5 minutes walk). We visited Corbridge which is only 3 miles away which has an excellent selection of restaurants of pubs. We would highly recommend this cottage and its setting. We will definitely be back.
We travelled to The Boathouse by train and used the convenient public transport throughout our stay . The well equipped lodge is luxurious and the beds SO comfy!!. It was lovely to sit on the decking and listen to the birdsong.The woodburner is a cosy feature on the cooler evenings.Our stay was PERFECT .We`ll visit again!
