  • "We had an amazing family holiday in this beautiful home, we had 4 generations of our family stay and the house fully met our needs ."

    The kitchen had everything we needed to make big family meals each day. The house was exceptionally warm and we didn’t need the fire lit in February! The house is well Located with shops and for us a local EV point for our electric car. Location great, beautiful walks right on your door step . We loved it, and would definately come back and recommend to others.

    The house is spacious and comfortable and the owner is excellent with her correspondence.. Haltwhistle is dog friendly with pubs, takeaways etc. Walking near the Roman wall is a treat for all the family.

  • "Lovely house, plenty of room, perfect location for a very short walk to the Co-op, Sainsbury's, local pubs and takeaways."

    Petrol station very near too. Warm house when the heating is on. Needs a decent frying pan and tin opener but minor detail. Easy to explore Northumberland and Scotland from the location. Nice back yard with garden furniture in a quiet location.

  • "A great place for our family reunion, & in a great position for walks etc."

    Possibly a group with people who like to go to bed early might not like the fact that the stairs go straight up from the sitting room so noise would go up - no problem if the noisy folk are in the large dining area though. The enclosed back yard has a good outdoor seating area & is v safe for dogs.

    Thank you Claire! Please come back anytime Property Owner

    Master bedroom on the top floor is beautiful, the other rooms are spacious but there is an overall lack of wardrobe space. The courtyard is a fantastic suntrap perfect for relaxing on a warm summers evening.

  • "Absolutely beautiful house in a great location."

    The sitting room is comfortable and big for the large group with lovely furnishing. The kitchen is great with the huge table where you can all sit together. It would have been nice to have been able to use the log burner for more than one night without having to provide your own logs. Never have I had a house where you were expected to do this, especially in Feb. (Maybe you could factor this in with the price ) Also having to take glass to the recycling bin which was a car journey from the house was a bit of a task. These are not complaints, just something you may wish to consider. We would stay again and we had a great time.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Dumbuie."

    The house was lovely, very spacious. The beds were really comfortable and the owner very kindly set up the beds to meet our needs. Thank you. Some negatives were, the banister doesn’t go right to the top of the stairs, this was a slight problem for us because we had two elderly ladies with us, it was also wobbled quite a bit! Only two of the five bedrooms had a wardrobe. The towels aren’t very big.

Always hot water at the turn on a tap. A well kept clean and tidy home that made you feel welcome and 'at home' the minute you walked in. Lovely holiday and want to return another year for sure.

    We appreciated the welcome pack of milk, bread etc. The property is very well appointed and smartly decorated, and unlike some places all the crockery, cutlery and glasses were new looking and in proper matching sets, rather than the random jumble of old stuff you get in some holiday rents. There was plenty of room in the kitchen diner for us all and plenty of utensils and cookware of sufficient sizes for larger numbers for producing meals in. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms nicely done. Also lots of space in the courtyard for our bikes. Good communication with the owner. Highly recommended.

I was also impressed with the speed at which the owner, Lindsey, replied to my emails when I raised a couple of minor issues. Highly recommended!

About the location


Hexham 17 miles.

Known as the 'Centre of Britain', this small market town is a great place from which to explore both Northumberland and Cumbria. Haltwhistle boasts a good range of shops and pubs - one of which, The Black Bull, is a real ale pub serving good food! There is an excellent leisure centre with heated open air swimming pool and cycle hire in the town, with pony trekking nearby. One of the best preserved stretches of Hadrian's Wall is only a mile to the north with various museums, forts and milecastles to be seen. There is even an ongoing 'dig' at the nearby site of Vindolanda. This truly is magnificent walking, riding and cycling country, with the Pennine Way and various bridleways and cycle routes passing rivers, forests, castles and of course, Hadrian's Wall. Visitors will enjoy this location in all weather and all seasons – a regular train and bus service from the town to Newcastle, The Metro Centre and Carlisle, means that you can leave the car behind and enjoy!
