  • "The cottage was great and delivered exactly what we hoped for from the photographs."

    The property has been well refurbished and thoughtfully furnished and was spotlessly clean. The owners and the point of contact at the cottage were very helpful. Plenty of walking and historical points of interest nearby. Overall, a peaceful “away from it all” break, and the dog loved it too. We will be back!

  • "Great location for exploring Hadrian's Wall country and Kielder to the north; Cumbria to the west, Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the south, and Newcastle - and surrounding areas - to the east."

    Brilliant! And Hexham's a great wee town too.

  • "No visitors information in place."

    Normally would expect details of how to operate heating,washing machine,wifi instructions etc.Together with phone numbers of services,ie Dentist,surgeries,nearest hospitals.No suggestions for walks and information of local area.Some useful information is picked up in guest book,with also pubs and or restaurants visitors have been to and now recommend,alas,no such book in place.We where unable to access use of tv had a connection problem which we could not solve.Owners tried to give telephone advise,to no avail.fortunately,good selection of DVD’s.Overall this did spoil the stay a little bit.Would be also better with dishwasher instead of washing machine.

  • "This is a really comfortable cottage in a beautiful location with outstanding views."

    However, it would not be easy for people with mobility issues as there are several changes of level.

  • "Overall the cottage was absolutely stunning."

    Isolated, peaceful, with amazing views all around, including some spectacular sunsets. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Our 9 month old German Shepherd loved it nearly as much as we did. The owner and caretaker couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely stay at Humbleton Cottage again in the future.

  • "This cottage is beautiful."

    It has character and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen well equipped. Excellent gas cooker. Everything was very clean. The location is very scenic. Fantastic views from rear window. It is very convenient for trips to Hexham for food and visits to Roman sites along Hadrian's Wall. We had a lovely holiday. Owner and assistant very welcoming. I would happily book this cottage again.

  • "Fantastic cottage."

    Spotlessly clean, everything you could wish for and in a beautiful remote setting. Comfortable and cozy warm with plenty of fuel for the wood burner and loads of hot water. Loved our stay and couldn’t fault a thing. I would say it was absolutely perfect, except for the lack of a dishwasher! But everything else about this property more than made up for having to do the dishes. Loved it!

    Really well set out, equipped & furnished. Spotlessly clean. Amazing views. Fabulous lounge / living space. Nice little touch to have a bottle of milk & wine waiting for us on arrival. Can't recommend this place enough

  • "Humbleton cottage is in a fantastic location with great views over the valley."

    It's extremely peaceful with only sheep and cows as neighbours. There's heaps to see and do in the area with Hadrian's wall just minutes away by car and the stunning coast just over an hour away. The cottage is beautifully furnished with a great living space for a family of four, and was well equipped. The owner was very responsive and solved an initial internet issue for us quickly and we would definitely recommend the cottage as a place to recharge your batteries.

    Quirky, fully equipped, cosy, everything worked and the beds were very comfortable. The views are amazing and it is so peaceful. We had a wonderful week. Can't wait to return.

  • "Lovely cottage if not a little too cluttered with furniture and wonderful views."

    However, the kitchen cupboards and door compartments of the fridge were dirty. There was no room in the kitchen cupboards for our own food, luckily we eat out so didn’t need the space. After showering for a couple of days we noticed the water was not draining, my partner took the drainage plug out of the shower and it was covered with hair, it hadn’t been cleaned for weeks. The inside of the shower was also dirty and the outer edges on the outside. There was a cup mark on the living room windowsill and dirty marks on the bedroom floor. The cottage was advertised as having WiFi but it didn’t. I had received a message from Sykes in April informing there was no WiFi but then I received an email stating it had been rectified and there was WiFi. I contacted the owner on arrival asking for the WiFi password and was informed that Sykes should have informed me that there was no WiFi. The TV didn’t work as we couldn’t receive a signal despite the owner stating that it did work, we tried several times turning the sky box off and on. The fact there was no TV wouldn’t have bothered us as we really only wanted it for the news and weather reports. It would have been nice to have a decent radio to listen to and some board games to play, We would have taken these things if we would have known prior to going. I was also surprised to see someone’s boots on the boot rack. Despite all of these complaint the beds were comfortable and clean, however if you were any bigger than a size 10 you would have difficulty fitting round one side of the bed in main bedroom and therefore my partner had to sleep in the second bedroom. Plenty of soft white fluffy towels but not very absorbent.

  • "Lovely location and high quality accommodation."

    Wifi was not available and TV reception was poor so listing was not quite accurate. As others have mentioned not having curtains does mean very early waking in summer mornings. We had an electricity problem on our last evening but got a 3 person response within 20 minutes. high quality caretaking and owner offered a free weekend to compensate for the inconvenience. Impressive response.

  • "We understood the cottage would have Wi-fi."

    Although we had a communication saying that the provider had changed or was in the process of changing but that was not the case. We always find Wi-fi useful to plan our touring when on holiday - however that did not stop us having a lovely time. It was an unusual cottage with a lot of planning gone into making it quite special. We felt that curtains in the bedroom would have been helpful - however it did give us lovely views of the stars at night - no light pollution there. The views from the cottage were second to none. The 'caretaker' was very prompt at sorting out a few little hitches. A truly beautiful part of the country, lots of wild life and lovely people.
