  • "Beautiful cottage in a spectacular location with very friendly hosts."

  • "Excellent warm, clean and well equipped cottage."

    Friendly and knowledgable owners next door if needed. Nice walks directly from the door onto local footpath network. The Co-op down in town has virtually everything you need. Also a very good Indian Restaurant. This is one of the few cottages we will return too. Its already booked for most of next year so will have to look at the few remaining dates left.

    . What more can I say? Fantastic views, easy hiking (dog walking) from the door. The hosts Edith and Jeff, very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. A big thank you for the goodies on arrival AND sorting the Internet issue. Thoroughly enjoyable stay - and will book again.

    We were so lucky with the weather, we didn’t get to try out the wood burner! The owners couldn’t have been more helpful with walks and tips, inc walks from the doorstep and around. All in all, a great place to stay. I would definitely recommend.

    Owners were on hand to greet us and we were welcomed with a basket of treats. We loved the cherry Madeira cake! The cottage was a perfect size for 2 couples and amenities well thought out. We wanted for nothing. Little touches made our stay perfect. Thank you. Julie, Ian, Nicky and Ronnie.

    Lovely furnishings and well equipped, comfortable double bed. Sadly the weather was against us so we didn’t explore the area as we’d hoped, but would happily return. The lasting impression for us is the warmth and generosity of the owners.

  • "We stayed at Dale View cottage during Autumn half term (22nd to 29th October)."

    We cannot underestimate how cosy this cottage is! This bungalo had all the creature comforts we could possibly ask for. The owners provided a basket of treats upon arrival: including fresh eggs, baked goodies, biscuits and tea. They even provided dog treats to include our pups! Within the cottage, there's a range of games, puzzles and books, to keep your family entertained when the weather isn't on your side. The log fire and blankets are a beautiful touch to keep you cosy during those long autumn nights. The view across the countryside is stunning. It is worth switching off those lights and star gazing at night. We even spotted a shooting star! Our regret being we didn't take our telescope. It is so peaceful within Allendale: the only noise being the sound of a hooting owl! Within the fields, my girls spotted several rabbits and rabbit holes. There's also horses/ ponies and sheep wondering within the surroundings. During our drive home from a day out, we spotted a bat flying by. The owners have hens wondering around occasionally. The cottage itself is extremely dog friendly: with an enclosed gravelled garden with a fence. The owners allowed use of the nearby fields to have a wonder with our energetic labradors. Within Allendale itself, (a short drive down the hill) there's a few tea rooms and several pubs. There's also a cafe/ art gallery with events on during the school holidays. My girls, aged 9 and 12, enjoyed pumpkin carving with a very talented artist, whilst we relaxed with a good old cup of tea. There's also a hidden gem: a sci fi museum with restored treasures from Doctor Who. The owner is genuinely proud of his sci fi memorabilia and the history around his museum. For sci fi fans, this is rammed in a very confined area, worth a visit! Spot the dalek/ tardis outside and ask about when Allendale was overtaken by daleks!! Beamish open air museum is also worth a drive to: especially for the children! Plus the ticket includes a years worth of visits if you are fortunate enough to revisit. We also visited Hadrians wall with our dogs and enjoyed a meal at a nearby pub. We wish we visited a few other scenic walks, but simply ran out of time!! The owners were very friendly and ensured our stay was as warm and homely as it could possibly be. They live next to the cottage but gave us space and freedom to explore the area. They even offered to give us more fuel for the log fire. Wi fi is included within the cottage, although my pre teen girls didn't once ask for their electronic devices (bonus points here!) Thank you so much for a wonderful, much needed break! We wish we could have stayed longer, but are now back to busy city life. Please do consider visiting this calm, cosy and friendly, place with outstanding beauty. You will not regret it! It was exactly our cup of tea (with a tea pot and hot beverages provided!)

    It was great to be able to go for walks in multiple directions from the cottage. Plenty of fresh air! I was happy to spend most of the week in the immediate vicinity of Allendale. The cafes, Co-Op, butcher and Indian restaurant provided us with everything we needed. I highly recommend Dale View Cottage if you’re looking for a friendly place to relax.

    The property is well presented, well equipped and comfortable and welcoming. It would be hard to find many holiday lets with such a stunning view and beautiful location. It was good to see Edith and Geoff again who are such friendly hosts without being obtrusive. It Noticeable in the visitor’s book is how many people return time and time again and one feels that we should perhaps be keeping this little gem secret rather than extolling its praises.

    The view across the Dale is breathtaking . We had a very comfortable stay with everything we needed. The welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk ,home made cake and chocolates were lovely after a 6 hour journey. The bonus was the cottage has a washing machine and tumble dryer so I was able to do our washing and dried it on the clothes horse in the fresh air . I was going to Purchase binoculars but Edith kindly lent us hers. The beds in the cottage were so comfortable , best we have ever slept in whilst on Holiday .Northumberland has the best dark sky to see the stars on a clear Night. You only hear the sounds of nature here and that's what we wanted. We were allowed to use one of the fields to give our dogs a good run.

    The local area is full of great places to walk and castles and Roman forts to see. Edith, the owner, was lovely. Really welcoming and friendly, with homemade cake and shortbread along with coffee, tea and milk all there for us after our long trip. Edith had offered to be there for our Tesco order too in case we were late. On our last day we left a bag behind and she texted me, asked how far we had got and then drove halfway out to meet us to give it back to us! Would have been perfect if the bed had no footer to it - we’re both tall and had to weave our feet through the bars! But it won’t stop us going back if we are ever in the area.

    If the cottage was a tent you'd consider it worth it, just because of the view!! Couple that view with a comfortable and homely cottage and it becomes a real gem. The owner was also really helpful and accommodating. I think the best recommendation I can say is that we are looking to rebook again soon.

    Having read others comments about this cottage it was with some trepidation that we travelled north, however we were pleased to find that everything was as described but the views from the patio over Allendale were simply understated. The scenery was fantastic, every morning sitting on the patio with no human sound to be heard, only cows, sheep and the bird song .......... we wished we had booked this place up for several more weeks as we enjoyed it that much.

    Very strong smell of dogs as soon as you walk in, probably due to carpets everywhere even the bathroom. Left 2 days early as couldn't stand it any longer. Cleanliness needs to be improved I had to clean the TV with a wet wipe it was so dirty. Cutlery drawer needs a good clean as well as the cutlery. A used tea bag was left in a jug next to the kettle when we arrived. Kettle needs replaced plastic and nasty yellow colour inside. It could be a lovely cottage but needs a refurb.

In all the many holiday lets I've stayed this competes with a loch side cabin we use in the Highlands for the most stupendous view. As for location, if you decide to have a day off from driving into the beautiful Northumbrian countryside then leave the car and walk out on anyone of four (quiet) public rights of way that radiate out from the complex including a moorland track and one leading to the beautiful little nearby village of Allendale.
