    Such a clean, cozy and relaxing cottage. Perfect location at the intersection of Northumberland, Cumbria and Scotland, so great for hiking (Hadrians wall) and trail running, sightseeing, roman history, traditional pubs, Gretna Green, and whisky tasting!

  • "Tight Lyne Cottage is the perfect peaceful holiday retreat."

    Peaceful, immaculately clean, modern and comfortable, although not very suitable for a disability as living/sleeping area is upstairs and shower/toilet is downstairs by the entrance. Hi Situated within an area with plenty of places to visit, walks and of course Hadrians Wall. If there was one draw back it was the lack of an iron and ironing board. Also no hairdryer supplied. Otherwise a really lovely place.

  • "We had the perfect stay in Tight Lyne Cottage."

    The property is beautifully designed to a high standard, spotlessly clean, a super comfy bed and very dog friendly with a private walled paddock for your pet. David is a wonderful host and Pip the farm dog is a gem, welcoming our two terriers to her patch and even taking them for a swim. Some properties say they are dog friendly, but Tight Lyne certainly is. The cottage is perfectly placed to visit Hadrian's Wall, the Lakes and the coast, we recommend St Bees for the beach. We will certainly stay again.

  • "Lovely stay in a very quaint well equipped cottage."

    So beautifully decorated and an extremely comfortable bed. Fishing for hubbie was a bonus. Our Labrador enjoyed having her own paddock and it was lovely to be able to sit out and relax in the sunshine. David was an excellent host and not forgetting Pip coming for a fuss too. Thoroughly recommend this little cottage, very peaceful but central for travelling around Cumbria.

    Both the property owner and Sykes were extremely accommodating in allowing our booking on the same day. We really wanted a peaceful, quiet New Year away from fireworks with our precious pooch and we got exactly that. Tight Lyne Cottage is snug, cosy, clean and has everything we needed. Thank you!

    The owner David is so friendly and kind and pip his dog just steals the show, she is so beautiful.
