  • "I've been drafting this review in my head for over a week now, it is a perfectly peaceful getaway with wildlife and walks on your doorstep."

    We saw hares, rabbits, stoats, moles, curlew and other wildfowl and there are nesting owls somewhere closeby as you can hear them if you are up for an early coffee. The owners have kindly supplied you with enough cleaning goods to last a few days until you visit the shops and the wine, crisps and biscuits were a delightful surprise on our arrival. The cottage is tidy and comfortable, the wifi is excellent (we had to work during our first week's stay) and the phone signal is good. You are surrounded by farmland (sheep and cows) and views, the garden fences are not escape proof so a long line and waist belt for your pupper will give you peace of mind as you play or sit and enjoy the scenery. The views are stunning, you sit on the shoulder of the valley so look out over Northumberland and can watch the farm traffic and the weather coming in. If you do not have a dog, you could spend a week not driving from the cottage, but instead walking out to the different walks, Isaac's Tea Trail (end of the track to Common Bank then turn left and walk to Keenley Methodist Church to join the trail, the Allendale Chimneys, the Sci Fi museum in Allandale. There is a treasure trove of public right of ways in this area, not all welcome to dogs due to nesting wildfowl but enough for dog walkers to have an enjoyable wander. If you wish to drive you have Hadrian's Wall, Miltonriggs Woods, Lambley Viaduct and Jockey Shields (Kings Forest of Geltsdale) to explore. The track to the cottage is a farm track but we managed it fairly easily in an i20 going slow and steady, just watch for the sheep as they tend to like to wander there at lunchtime :)

  • "Leazes Garth is a lovely cottage in a lovely area with amazing views."

    We had a fabulous weeks stay here. There were a few niggles, which I will list but these didn't ruin the holiday for us overall. 1. The garden isn't dog friendly as the fence around the property is an open fence. Perhaps a panelled fence would be better. 2. In the hallway there are some loose tiles that despite previously mentioned in the reviews these still haven't been fixed. 3. The ensuite bathroom could do with a towel rail and more space to store Toiletries etc 4. It would have been useful if a mattress topper had been provided for the bedroom with the zip link beds as this would have made the bed more comfortable. 5. Unfortunately, the cottage was not cleaned to a high standard when we arrived (dirty cotton pad with dirty makeup on was left on the bedside unit in the small double bedroom, the bedding in this room was not clean with hairs all over the duvet) However, despite these comments I would also like to say that the kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need, having the separate boot room is fantastic for hanging up wet coats, removing dirty boots and cleaning the dog, the sofa bed in the lounge was also great for disturbed sleep due to husband snoring loudly

  • "Lovely location with fantastic views however the track up to the farm was very uneven."

    The cottage was well equipped and clean but there was no blind or curtain in the bathroom so we had to hang a towel over the curtain pole so no one could see in. Nice welcome hamper left for us but a pint of milk would have been appreciated even more as we had forgot to buy some on the way but that was our fault. We wouldn’t go back as we found it too far away from the place we like to visit and walk.

  • "This is a lovely holiday cottage but we are dog owners and while this property allows pets, it is not dog friendly."

    Garden fence is neither dog proof nor sheep proof, and is next to a sheep field, so need to accompany dog into garden at all times. No dog extras provided (e.g. dog poo bin, treats, extra towel) and dog has to stay downstairs. When we arrived in the cottage it smelled damp and some of the crockery was not clean, others had been put away wet. Despite previous reviews, loose tiles in hallway still not fixed and were a trip hazard especially with 5yo, we moved doormat to cover them. Says it's baby friendly and has highchair and bedguard but barbed wire fence, pile of loose wire in garden, no plastic plates or bowls, maybe needs more thought. We're used to farm tracks, but this was one of the worst we've been on. Lots of lovely features like the woodburner, L-shaped sofa, and great en-suite shower, but was not our dream destination due to above issues.

  • "Beautiful barn conversion and clean and comfortable."

    Lovely surprise welcome pack, thank you. Liked where there was the entrance to store boots and coats before entering the house. Car advised at all times as long walk to village. Lovely relaxing stay. Recommendations would a a long runner carpet along passage upstairs as floor in certain parts are very shiny and smooth causing a few slipping, two tiles loose on ground floor passage needs fixing. Dogs also must be kept on lead at all times as even a large dog could get through fence. Netting would be a bonus to secure court yard. Thank you for our lovely stay.

  • "The property is as advertised and is in a great position to explore the Upper Pennines and Hadrian's wall area."

    It was warm and welcoming with a great welcome pack, and had all the facilities needed for a week away with our dog. The separate entrance /boot/cloakroom and utility was especially useful for cleaning our dog down before entering the main house. We did several walks at High Force, Derwent Water, up to NT Wallington House and NT Allen Banks. Locally we had coffee at Koffee and Kuriosities sampled the beer at Allendale brewery then walked the Allendale sculpture trail along the riverbank to Allendale. There is plenty to see if you like walking and this area is off the beaten track so is not touristy. The property is located in a rural setting near farms and the 100m track to the property does get muddy so a hosepipe to clean the car down would be useful in autumn/winter. Thanks again for a great stay.

  • "Great location especially for visiting Hadrians wall, lovely property with fantastic views."

    There were a couple of niggles, there are no toilet roll holders in any of the three toilets, the second (double) bedroom is too small and has no wardrobe, I would suggest putting bunk beds in this room and the double bed in the twin room.

  • "I have rated the facilities as excellent as the amenities we used in the nearby area were brilliant."

    The cottage location was beautiful and would definatley return. Close enough to the lakes for a day out and also surrounded by plenty of walks. My son especially loved greeting the sheep and cows that were grazing at the side of the road to the cottage and those in the field infront of the property.

  • "We enjoyed our stay and it was a lovely cottage set in the middle of the rolling hills surrounded by farms and animals."

    Just what we wanted! Lovely to be able to bring our dog too. We didn’t let her run freely in the garden as we didn’t want her to ‘potentially‘ run near the cows, calf’s and sheep. I’m not sure how secure the fencing was to be absolutely sure though. I’d only really say that the lounge had no fire so ended up just staying in the open plan kitchen diner lounge where there was a lovely wood burner and also all of the doors creaked which can wake people up, so just a dab of WD40 on the hinges would sort that out! Thank you for the lovely stay!

    The cottage had everything we wanted, the only thing I would say, that would have been better, was if there was a television situated in the open plan living and kitchen area, which was more cosy than the lounge. That said, it was a fantastic holiday.

  • "Leazes Garth is a wonderful barn conversion decorated to a very high standard."

    It is perfectly located with the most stunning views across the Allen Valley. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is quite new to the market and there are a number of things we would recommend to make it even better. A bread board and bread knife would be most useful as would extra wardrobe space in the bedrooms. Also, the wood burner in the lounge does not work very well and does not give out much heat. The only time it worked very well was when there was a gale force wind blowing outside. We are keen cyclists and somewhere to store the bikes would have been very useful too.

    Very comfortable and well placed for visiting the nearby area and attractions. Village 2.5 miles away so defend walk but doable. Great pubs with food and an excellent Coop. Highly recommend.
