    The cottage did not meet my expectations but Sykes itself did. The cottage needed a deep clean downstairs and all the furniture in the garden was covered in cobwebs and other debris. The instructions for the appliances etc were in a polythene bag hidden among the tourist info leaflets - in previous cottages I have rented they have been arranged for easy access in a folder. The water heater was not on when we arrived. The dryer was not usable - the door lock is broken. Apparently the owner knew about this but we had not been informed. Two of the four ceiling lights in the kitchen were 'out', making the kitchen rather dark and hard to use, and 36 hours after leaving a phone message for the owner, there was not action. When I then contacted the Sykes office they speedily got this resolved. This kind of thing should have been checked and remedied before we arrived. We arrived by train and walked to Bridge Street, which was the address we were given. However it turned out that the correct address was Castle Hill - 20 minutes walk (dragging suitcases) at the other end of the town. The location of the cottage was unexpected - on the main road through the town and directly opposite a builders' yard, which got going at 7.30 in the morning - not ideal for a relaxing start to the day. And also, therefore, the main view from the living room and main bedroom was this yard. In summary, whilst Sykes' service itself was good, I would not recommend the cottage .

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!
