We did worry that maybe we would be too isolated, so only booked 5 day stay. Next time it will be longer. Previous visitors had left lists of dog friendly pubs and restaurants locally, which was very handy.

Lovely that our dog could wonder freely and that the farm dogs were welcoming to him. We could open the door and walk him for miles without getting in the car, sometimes the farm dogs came with us, which we enjoyed.

We had wanted to see the Dark Sky, unfortunately we chose the longest day of the year, obviously we had not thought that one through! Next time we will go earlier or later in the year.

There were 11 dogs on site when we visited, being dog lovers we welcomed them all into our cottage and left the door open. Something that you may want to consider if you are not that much of a dog lover.

Only thing we were short of was a baby gate to keep our dog out of the bedroom and had to use dining chairs. The cottage otherwise was very well equipped the very clean. Could recommend Scotch Coulthard to anyone.

We are glad you enjoyed your visit and hope if you come back you will have more luck with the skies! We do have a baby gate for dogs so let us know next time you are here if you would like it. I never though to mention it in the welcome pack so will now include it!

This is somewhere that we love to base ourselves whilst visiting the northeast, we hadn't realised just how beautiful this part of England could be. The bonus is its quiet, remote and we can take our 5 well-behaved working labs with us. Andrew & Susan's own dogs don't mind the extra visitor's being around and often walk through the meadows with you. The accommodation is excellent for our needs.

Won a two night stay in the Hope Sike one bedroom cottage on EBay. Travelled with son aged 10 and one dog (Lola). Found the location easily from directions given. Stopped at Corbridge and Haltwhistle on the way. Both nice locations. Great drive on single track road for last few miles of the journey. Sheep, cows and horses everywhere.....and Hadrians Wall (not very high). Scotchcoulthard is in the middle of beautiful countryside surrounded by animals. Warm welcome from Susan and all of the dogs (Heidi, Meg and Sadie). Shown to Hope Sike which is advertised for two, however our son stayed on air bed in living area. Living area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom all to a good standard. French doors out to small patio area, garden and some chairs. Wonderful view over the Northumbrian countryside. Kitchen well stocked with fridge freezer, hob and microwave, grill and oven. All utensils provided (including wine glasses). Also table and chairs and lovely home made cake. Their is also the option to buy locally sourced meat. TV with free view. We didn't have phone coverage or internet but that was perfect as we could use the other facilities such as the swimming pool, table tennis table and snooker/pool table. We even played Monopoly. Kieran loved playing with all of the dogs who were in and out of our cottage for the entirety of our stay. They were all lovely natured. We opened the curtains on a morning and they would be there, waiting to be let in. Very cute. Hosts were excellent who made sure that Kieran got the chance to feed the pigs. He loved it. Table tennis, swimming pool and snooker / pool table were all of good quality and enjoyed. Appeared to be available 24 hours. Great walks with dogs nearby, and good local information provided. Excellent accomodation and most dog friendly place we have ever stayed at. You won't regret going.

We have recently stayed at scotchcoulthard and wanted to say it is a great dog friendly place. We have 3 dogs and there is no problem about how many dogs you take as long as they are well behaved. I am a bit fussy in my own home even though I have dogs myself and the cottages are lovely and clean and very well equipped. Had such a good time we are going at new year.
It's great to find a place that loves dogs that is clean well equipped and in a stunning location.i can highly recommend it.
