  • "Stayed at many Sykes cottages in the past, this one was booked at very short notice but was the first time we have been disappointed."

    There was no WI-FI and the TV was not a smart TV , both advertised as included so our plan to catch up on our TV programmes on the dark nights fell apart, furthermore the tv aerial was an indoor one which on arrival was on the window sill and provided no signal until I stood it on a log closer to the window , limited TV channels. Be prepared to live out of a suitcase, the cottage sleeps 4 but there are only 2 bedside cabinets in the upstairs bedroom, no hanging space anywhere. No instructions for the central heating which appeared to be set on warm and the day and time on the programmer were incorrect, managed to get some heat with trial and error fortunately there were plenty logs supplied for the stove. Car parking is away from the cottage in a small quarry area which is not a huge area but it also serves as the bin bay for approximately 12 wheelie bins some of which had toppled over in the wind. I spent the first day picking up litter including open food tins that could injure our dog , then worried the rest of the week about our car being damaged by bins blown over by the strong winds . Our holiday end day was Saturday but we packed up and left on Friday morning as soon as we got up. The cottage has lovely features and huge potential but a little more thought is needed regarding facilities…..the parking/bin problem is not the sole responsibility of the owner to rectify but I wouldn’t stay there again

  • "Absolutely fantastic cottage."

    This was just what we wanted miles from anywhere with lots of country walks with the dog. Would have been perfect if it had a upstairs toilet. Very warm and cozy for our winter break..

The property

Allendale 6.1 miles.

Swinhope View, a quaint, two-bedroom cottage settled in the rural village of Sparty Lea a few miles from Allendale, Northumberland.

Sporting a well-presented interior with off-road parking and a myriad of scenic walks from the door, Swinhope View is an excellent base for families or two couples eager to escape everyday life and discover what Northumberland has to offer.

Enter into the sitting room, complete with beams and a woodburning stove for a gentle warmth in the winter months, TV.

Move into the kitchen, well-appointed to assist with home-cooked meals, to be enjoyed at the dining table.

Find comfort in either of the bedrooms, both offering double beds and situated upstairs and downstairs, whilst the shower room is the place for a freshen up.

Enjoy a cup of tea as you sit on the garden bench, gazing over the idyllic fields to soon be explored.

If its some hearty grub and ales you're after, just three miles away lies the Allenheads Inn, whilst your closest supermarket can be found in Allendale, six miles north.

Head to Allendale Brewery and sample a range of local ales, whilst those keen golfers will find an excellent course nearby, plus there are many places of historic interest including Hadrian’s Wall just to the north.

Make your way to the bustling city of Newcastle and discover the Newcastle Castle, the Stephenson Steam Railway, and the Discovery Museum.

If you’d prefer to stay closer to home, lace up your walking boots and explore the surrounding footpaths and walkways.

However you choose to spend your time, a break at Swinhope View has everything for a rural retreat to Northumberland.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

HEXHAM

Newcastle 22 miles.

A bustling little market town, Hexham has several antique shops and is popular with tourists visiting nearby Hadrian’s Wall. Beautiful old Hexham Abbey dates back to the 7th century and has a superb Saxon crypt. Shoppers flock to colourful stalls in The Shambles in the Market Place on Tuesday and close by is the 14th century Moot Hall, now an art gallery. The town boasts plenty of open spaces, particularly the Sele next to the abbey, which is now a lovely public park. Nearby is Tyne Green - a riverside country park - and Hexham Race Course is just to the south of the town.
