  • "Absolutely beautiful home in a beautiful part of the world."

    We had a lovely time with two families, with plenty of room for everyone. Great location in the centre of town, with plenty to do in the area. Anna was a responsive and accommodating host.

  • "Absolutely stunning property and Anna the host was superb."

    Always quick to respond to any queries. Takes a while to heat up as the heating system is via the solid fuel fire but just a quirk of a very quirky house. Beautifully decorated and in a lovely setting. Would definitely go back. Stunning.

  • "Excellent location from which to explore Northumberland on foot and via public transport."

    Local amenities are also very good. The village is very peaceful and views of the South Tyne across the bridge stunning. Well worth a visit.

  • "Loved the quirk."

    You can tell a lot of love has gone into this house. Nice greeting and any queries answered. Great base for the best bits of Hadrian's Wall and river walks. Good pubs and eateries two minutes away. Good Co-Op. Really friendly village and neighbours.

    The communication, welcome and the house itself were all excellent. Ashley & Anna were very helpful and all the facilities and equipment in the house were great. The location is stunning and we’ll definitely return in the future. Many thanks.

  • "Lovely Lovely house."

    Lovely owners. Lovely family holiday. On the doorstep of Hadrians Wall, the village of Haydon Bridge is a great central location for exploring Cumbria and Durham, as well as Northumberland. Coffee house 30 secs walk and Co-op 3 mins

  • "A gem in the heart of Haydon Bridge village."

    Excellent facilities, high spec fixtures and fittings and a thoughtful accommodating host. The parking space is a little awkward to get in and out of but nonetheless this is a fantastic holiday home and we thoroughly recommend. We will definitely return.

  • "Great property and the owner was very helpful."

    Had a minor issue with the hot water that stopped working mid-holiday, contacted the owner and they had a plumber out to fix the problem within a few hours! The owner was very thoughtful and on arrival we found a complementary bottle of Prosecco and 2 pints of milk in the fridge with some local quality biscuits on the kitchen table - a nice touch! There was also complementary access to Netflix on the big (65 inch?) TV. This property was a great base for exploring the Roman forts and Hadrian’s wall that were nearby, and even a trip over to Kielder Forest was only about a 50 minute trip. Would highly recommend this property.

  • "What a fabulous place to stay!"

    This lovely house is quirky and delightful and surpassed our expectations. The owners were on hand and very eager to assist us with anything. Your every need for a whole family stay is catered for and we all loved it, from 1yr - 65yrs. A huge thank you for the birthday presents for our family, too! This is an exceptional holiday home. Thank you!

    Thank you very much for your feedback and letting us know we got it right and you all had a super holiday and loved the holiday house. We do try hard to cater for those personalised details to make it even more special. Property Owner

  • "Had a fantastic stay here for New Years, photos don’t do the cottage justice."

    And the host was super helpful and friendly.

    Christmas and New year are lovely events to lavish and dress the house with xmas trees and decorations. We cannot guarantee the snow however cosying around the log stove with candles and a welcoming bottle of Prosecco sets the tone for a lovely holiday. Listening to feedback we have worked hard upgrading the holiday house and want our guests to have a wonderful experience. It is an unusual house and most people react with delight when they walk through the door. Bathrooms have been upgraded so that the showers are both accessible at the same time. A dishwasher has been designed and installed in the kitchen. A luxurious masterchef cooker with multiple ovens has replaced previous one and blinds for the other bedrooms are been put in place. We are most conscientious to make sure your stay is a lovely experience Property Owner

  • "The arrival and departure times on website does not match the owners requests."

    Eight people trying to shower in facilities that only provided for one person to shower at anytime was not great to say the least. Pillows need replacing. No locks on bathroom. Dishwasher needed for size of accommodation. Totally overpriced.

    The arrival and departure times have been changed to accommodate the extra time required to make sure the house is ready for our guests. There are two bathrooms including two showers and a bath as advertised. Pillows have been replaced to a higher standard. Thank you for highlighting the locks these will be put in place. A dishwasher may be considered in the future but at the moment the traditional style kitchen can not accommodate one. Pricing structures are decided by the letting agency. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was lovely and clean and bright."

    Spacious and well kitted out with everything you would need. Just a few things that were slight niggles: fabric on the settee was quite itchy and not comfortable on bare skin, Over took a very long time to heat up and cook food (think 40 mins for oven chips),

    The sofas are new from Barker and Stonehouse and the upholstery is a traditional tweed wool - sorry it was itchy I'll look out for some throws to make it more comfortable! I will check the oven out however there is also a combination oven that also does microwave and conventional cooking Property Owner

  • "Spacious, very well equipped, warm, comfortable accommodation in centre of town with parking outside the door."

    Very convenient for Hadrian's Wall/Northumbria and short walk to the train station for access and sightseeing further afield. Only downsides were the absence of immediate outside space or blinds/curtains on the skylights in two bedrooms meaning the children woke too early.

  • "A wonderful cottage with exceptional service from Anna!"

    Plenty of logs/kindling for the wood burner kept us cosy all week and she even gave us a bottle of prosecco & biscuits to celebrate the New Year! 100% would recommend a stay here.

  • "Shaftoe House was a beautiful base for our holiday last week."

    The owner, Anna, met us and showed us around, explaining everything. There were biscuits to welcome us, as well as a pantry with a good supply of all the essentials. The log burner was going and we couldn’t have been made more welcome. The house itself was immaculate and a lot of effort has clearly gone into making this cottage as enjoyable a stay as possible. You are literally 2 minutes from the local pub, which serves great meals. There’s a tasty chip shop close by, with a mini supermarket less than 5 min walk away. The location is beautiful, with the River South Tyne next to the pub. Loads to do close by with Hadrians Wall, castles etc, with the coast not being too far away either. You certainly won’t be disappointed staying here!

  • "We had a wonderful time during our three day visit and the cottage was extremely comfortable and well stocked for all our needs."

    Our one suggestion would be to consider heavy blinds or curtains in the bedrooms (not including the attic room which was fine!) as we were awake early due to light coming in, especially in the rooms with dormer windows. On the whole though, Anna, the owner was very welcoming and approachable, she even had a fire roaring for us on arrival! The cottage was spotless and comfortable and in a great spot to explore a very beautiful part of the world. Thank you for having us and we will hopefully be back soon :)
