“Just the most fabulous country cottage you will ever stay in!!!”
Reviewed 28 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

people found this review helpful

Just the most fabulous country cottage I have ever had the pleasure of staying in! David and Micheal really do give you a ‘home away from home’ experience. You have all the ‘mod cons’ you need all wrapped up in a cozy, quaint little cottage.

So much thought and effort has gone into ensuring you have the best experience. From the lovely welcome pack, fresh flowers in the lounge, all the kitchen utensils you need to whip up a Sunday roast (if you feel the need!) to the recommendations of things to see and do in the local surrounding area.

But it was the little touches that really made the difference for me. Like having a plug for your hairdryer near to a mirror, adequate bedside lighting so you can read a book and the little night lights to help guide you to the bathroom in the middle of the night. These, and more such little touches really were the cherry on the cake as these small details are so often ignored in other cottages that I have stayed in.

Thank you for such an awesome experience....I will definitely be back!

“Quaint cottage in a beautiful setting ”

We stayed at the Woodman’s Cottage, Allenheads, for a long weekend.

The cottage was very clean, tidy, and very comfortable. The peaceful surroundings meant that we both felt rested after our weekend.

We can not recommend this retreat enough, and we’ll definitely be going back!

“And Cosiest Cottage Award goes to.....”
Reviewed 7 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Woodmans Cottage!!!
We spent the weekend in Woodmans and found it just like home from home. It is finished off to the highest of standards with everything covered. The gorgeous Secret Garden for fine days and stargazing or a host of books, cd, dvd and board games for those rainy days.
If you can tear yourself away from the cottage it is ideally situated for the delights of Durham, Northumberland and Cumbria with fabulous scenery and attractions.
We would highly recommend this cottage if you are active or just want a chilling break, you will appreciate all the little touches such as the kitchen starter pack and the complementary biscuits and port (although we forgot to try it...well there's always next time)

“Amazing cottage”
Reviewed 15 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Wow this cottage is amazing. The views are spectacular . There is lots of walks to do if you want or jump on the bus if you don’t fancy driving and enjoy a day in Hexham or corbridge and sample the local pubs or have lunch there are plenty to choose from.then when night comes go out into the secret garden and do a bit of star gazing. Or pop along to the allenheads inn its most welcoming . It’s been a most relaxing stay and will definitely be back to watch the rabbits playing in the fields opposite the cottage

The cottage is warm and welcoming as soon as you step inside. You have such a lovely view of the country side on your doorstep. With plenty of walks nearby.There is a regular bus passes by the cottage into Hexham and Allenheads. Also you have a short walk from the cottage to the pub wich is very welcoming.Dark skies at night if you like to stargaze from the secret garden too. There are two large bedrooms with plenty of space.
The cottage has everything you need it's home from home.
We will definitely be going back.

The location is wonderful ... with amazing countryside right on the doorstep and views to die for !
If you are wanting peace and quiet this is the place to go .
The Cottage is absolutely beautiful , warm , cosy and very inviting , in fact we didn’t want to go home ,
We were greeted with a welcome pack which we thought was a lovely touch .
There is a regular bus service to take you into near towns and into Allendale to visit the local pub to sample a drink or two !
We can’t recommend this place enough .... we will definitely be going back .
