"Lovely peaceful and comfortable cottage which has everything you need and more."
Very kind of owners to leave a lovely welcome pack. It was lovely to have use of the paddock to exercise our dog
"A comfy and peaceful cottage."
Very clean and well equipped. Just perfect to come back to after a day exploring the area. The beds are really comfortable as well. Lesley was really helpful and had left us the most delicious lemon cake as well as a bottle of fizz. There were also 2 beautiful flower arrangements to welcome us. We would definitely recommend this wonderful, homely cottage.
"Enjoyed staying at the cottage, had a very relaxing time, cottage had everything we needed, would happily stay there again."
"Easily the best cottage we’ve stayed in with cottage holidays stretching back over 12 years."
So much room and very comfortable, particularly the bed!
"Excellent holiday Cottage."
Great location. Very clean, tidy and well equipped. Helpful owners who are on hand should you need them but give you your space if you don’t! Lovely welcome pack which was appreciated. Would definitely recommend the cottage
"Lovely homely well equipped cottage."
Enjoyed the garden so did our dog. Nice little extras in the cottage to make us feel welcome. Great area had a lovely week
"Just a good place to stay."
"I arrived just after 3pm and received a very warm welcome from the owner Lesley."
I decided to book this cottage after reading past review's and I wasn't disappointed, it was everything and more than expected. Thank you for the cake, flowers etc. a very kind and thoughtful gesture.
"Couldn't fault this property in any way clean comfortable very well equipped highly recommended"
"This cottage was recommended by a friend who stayed here last year."
I will now also recommend to others. Cosy and homely. Basics and luxuries provided, including fresh flowers, was really nice and appreciated. It was like staying in a friend's home rather than rented house. Bumped into Lesley the owner a couple of times and I felt like I belonged in the village for the short time I was there. The woodland in the grounds was jaw droppingly fantastic. I'm pleased all that part of the grounds is not included in the photos on the website, as the joy of discovering and walking through that part with my anxious dog able to investigate off lead safely will always stay with me.
"Such a lovely cottage in an outstanding location."
Clean, comfortable and cosy. Fully equipped kitchen made self catering so easy, however plenty of choices to eat out in Bellingham and beyond. The garden was a joy to explore, however having 2 mini Houdini dogs not fully secure so they had to be fully supervised outside. We put out a wildlife cam and caught a badger visiting the garden on several occasions, and the sheep and horses in the surrounding fields made it a lovely rural retreat.
"David and lesley are great hosts."
They answered queries in minutes of asking and were super helpful. The cottage is exactly as it looks in photos and as advertised. Tea, coffee, milk and cake waiting for you on arrival and a bottle of prosecco too
"2nd time staying here and had a great 5 days."
Great location and fantastic property with some lovely extra special touches.
"Lovely cottage in an ideal location for travelling around Northumberland we ..."
Lovely cottage in an ideal location for travelling around Northumberland we loved the extra touches left by the owners such as Flowers cake and Prosecco Thank you
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, lovely cottage and very roomy."
Good location for nearby attractions, walks and eateries with everything you need available in Bellingham. Tasty lemon drizzle cake and a bottle of Prosecco were waiting for us on arrival and the cottage was well stocked with essentials, the eco friendly boiler kept us cosy, with the log fire adding extra warmth and ambience. Bed was incredibly comfy. Lesley (the owner) called round immediately when we couldn’t close the dishwasher door ( easily resolved with the correct technique!) Friendly horses in the adjoining field. We all ( including the dog) had a great time, would definitely visit again.
Very well equipped.
"The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm and very cosy, with an open fire to add to the atmosphere."
The cake, fizz, flowers and handmade soap were lovely touches - thank you. Beds were very comfortable, and having 2 3-seater sofas was perfect for 4 adults. Being just outside Bellingham meant it was very peaceful, whilst being within walking distance of the town (although not at night in autumn/winter, due to no footpath on the road). In all, a wonderful stay in a beautiful part of the world.
"Most important you need to amend directions."
Because of time of year we arrived in dark. Second turn off to Redesmouth hiddeninhedge. So you need to state that there is first one turning to cottage and then another in Bellingham itself. when you get there you need to state drive is hidden. Past farm and then a first cottage. The cottage is the second one. We drove up wrong drive. I think you also a need to take better photos of the position of the cottage. Particularly showing t he wonderful view down to the River. The most wonderful aspect of the position. It is such a lovely place a you neeed to Showa the best of it.
"Cottage was warm, cosy and pretty, it was also a lot roomier than we had expected and there were lovely views from every window."
It was also nice to have a lovely bottle of fizz and cake to enjoy. The mini soap bars were a very thoughtful touch. All the Sykes cottages we've stayed in have been excellent, but this was one of the best.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed our cottage, we think it's a special place so glad you did too. kind regards Lesley Property Owner
"What a lovely cottage this is, we would definitely come back here again, and not just for the welcome package which was very thoughtful."
We were very lucky with the weather for the time of year, and when we weren't out walking and sightseeing, we spent many hours sat in the garden admiring the fabulous views. On a couple of our walks at the river we watched salmon and trout jumping - great to watch. Also, the horse was lovely and friendly - he would come for walks with us around the paddock with the dogs, who were a bit scared the first time he did it, but after that they just ignored him I would say the only downside was the lack of a lock on the upstairs bathroom door, but apart from that it was perfect
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, William does like to have someone to make a fuss of him! I will remedy the lock on the bathroom door, can't think why I didn't think to put one on! many thanks Lesley Property Owner
"Thoroughly enjoyable stay."
A great base for exploring surrounding sights. Nice touch with the extras provided Prosecco and cake!
Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated regards Lesley Property Owner
"Excellent we had a lovely week due to the cottage ,property owner and the weather all stunning"
So pleased you enjoyed your stay, and thank you for your kind comments, but I would love to know where we lacked in comfort? kind regards Lesley Property Owner
"We had a lovely time in this cosy, well-equipped cottage, real home from home in a beautiful area."
Bellingham village had everything we could need and it was a good base to go out and about. Would recommend. Kath & Gerry
Thank you for your comments, so glad you enjoyed your visit kind regards Lesley Property Owner
"A really lovely cottage we cannot fault anything at all."
Beautiful location and superb lemon drizzle cake! The prosecco and milk was a very nice touch thanks so much. We would definitely recommend the cottage
Thank you for your kind comments, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the confusion over the kitchen knife! Kind regards Lesley Property Owner
"We had a fantastic 3 night break at the property at the end of April 2022."
The cottage was beautiful and very homely, we all really enjoyed the relaxed vibe of the cottage. The gardens were great to sit in and soak up the view of the surrounding fields and the dogs loved exploring especially up and over the bridge to the rear of the property. The lemon drizzle cake was lovely and a slice was had by each of us along with a glass of the Prosecco which the owners of the cottage had left for us on arrival. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped and the wood burning fire in the living room was fab to relax in front of in the evening. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back later in the year!
Thank you for your feedback, so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back later in the year kind regards Lesley Property Owner
"Arrival at this stunning property was made so welcoming with the beautiful lemon drizzle cake, bubbly and told we had use of the extensive garden and paddock next door for our dogs."
The prooerty itself is delightful. The location absolutely amazing with gorgeous views and so close to Keilder Forest and the fabulous beaches on the East Coat. Couldnt have asked for or expected anything better. Fantastic few days away.
Thank you, for your lovely feedback, so glad you enjoyed your stay and the chance to explore Northumberland kind regards Lesley Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage, beautiful countryside."
Lots of little extra’s like, cake, fizz & homemade soap. Highly recommended for a truly relaxing stay.
Thank you so much for your comments, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay regards Lesley Property Owner
"Ideal location for exploring the Northumberland countryside."
House had everything you could ask for and more. Fantastic garden, not secure enough to let our terrier off lead but lovely all the same. We will hopefully return!
thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, I'll check the fence for obvious escape routes and see what I can do! regards Lesley Property Owner
"We have stayed with Holiday Property Bond for many a year but I’ve just cashed in my shares after being consistently impressed by the standard of cottages from Sykes!"
This cottage did not disappoint - absolutely stunning location, we felt at home the moment we stepped through the door. Only wish we could have stayed longer. A place of real tranquility- thank you to the lovely owners for the lemon cake and Prosecco. Please let us know if you ever decide to sell!
Thank you for your feedback, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, we've no plans to sell but it is nice to know you liked it that much! regards Lesley Property Owner
"Wonderful location gateway to the national park (walks from the door), a warm inviting comfortable cottage with everything you need and more."
The owners go that extra mile with their extra's (lemon drizzle cake best ever). Thank you
Thank you for your feedback, so glad you enjoyed your stay and the cake! regards Lesley Property Owner
"Absolutely fantastic cottage in a beautiful location."
This is our second visit here and won’t be our last . Super comfy beds and just love the open fire.
Thank you for your feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hopefully next time you'll be able to do everything you want to do regards Lesley Property Owner
"Lovely place Good doggie walking area Useful garden especially over the bridge!"
! Friendly horse
Thank you for your comments, and lovely to see you again. William certainly enjoys having someone to talk to him regards Lesley Property Owner
"We love this cottage, the location is stunning and the garden is lovely."
We very much enjoyed seeing Pye the horse our daughter gave him a carrot. If it was not the wrong thing to do I would score the cottage low, so less people booked it and we could have more stays
"Absolutely lovely cottage with lovely features, well stocked and very comfortable, with those finishing touches that make for a special stay."
Bellingham and Redesdale is a lovely area for walks locally or to explore the wider Northumberland and this cottage is a wonderful base to do it from.
"This was a lovely cottage in a peaceful setting."
It was comfortable and cosy and had all we needed. We liked being able to walk from the cottage along the river and into Bellingham. We spent every day of our stay out walking in the beautiful countryside, and evenings in front of the fire. Would definitely recommend.
"Wonderful place to stay."
Quiet, warm, comfortable and relaxing. Next to the river so we could walk easily without getting into the car. The welcome flowers, bubbles and cake that were for us when we arrived meant our birthday celebration weekend got off to a lovely start.
"The cottage had a real home from home feeling, it was warm, well equipped and the beds and bedding very comfortable."
Lesley the owner was on hand to give advice if needed. A perfect base for the Pennine Way
"Excellent accomodation, Lesley thought of everything possible to make our visit even more special."
The only downside (which we already knew, so no fault on the listing) is that there is only one toilet, which is down the steep stairs. A bit of a challenge in the middle of the night. Marvellous location, every luxury item included, along with a fantastic cake and a bottle of Fizz. Highly recommend!
"Lovely cottage, a short drive from Bellingham, with wonderful views."
Cottage was extremely clean, well equipped, with comfortable beds. The owner left a bottle of fizz and a gorgeous lemon drizzle cake, which was a nice touch. Would highly recommend
"The cottage was lovely inside and the extensive gardens were an unexpected bonus!"
"We contacted the owner Lesley and she was very helpful."
The neighbors were lovely. The gardens and views were amazing. Thank you so much for the cake and wine it's a lovely touch. We all had an amazing stay and Jetty the Jackapoo loved it too, hope she didn't bark too much
Facilities were first class, as was the outdoor space. Owners were both friendly and there if you needed them. Homemade cake, wine and milk were a lovely touch. The surrounding area was gorgeous. Great for dogs. Plenty to do and see. Try the Railway Carriage café in Bellingham, friendly service and good food.
"There are so many nice things about this accommodation."
Very comfortable and well equipped cottage. Lovely views and nothing to disturb the sound of birdsong and lambs. The village has good facilities for provisions and in the area there are many places to visit. We enjoyed watching our 2 dogs roaming off lead in the quirky garden and paddocks, although small dogs would need watching as some of the fencing has gaps. Nice touches in cottage of fresh flowers and a welcome gift of a delicious home made cake, bottle of fizz and milk. Friendly owner and a set of neighbours who left us to our own devices. All in all a really good place for a holiday.
"Have already completed one orf thes just after our holiday ended"
"Lovely cottage in a lovely location."
Very clean and tidy especially with COVID in mind. Loved the cake and fizz left for us, they went down nicely.
"We very much enjoyed our stay in the cottage."
It was cosy with plenty of drying space for outdoor clothing, the beds very comfortable, nice to have two three seater sofas to stretch out on. The garden was lovely and a thoughtful welcome pack of wine, cake, tea, coffee, sugar and milk plus fresh flowers were waiting for us. The owners were very friendly and promptly supplied a new kettle when the one in the cottage failed. I would be happy to book this cottage again and would definitely recommend it.
"Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location."
"The garden of the cottage was lovely!"
Everything was well appointed and the cottage was very cosy. Location was fantastic with amazing views and great local walks. The owners could not have been more helpful when our car broke down. We don't usually revisit the same cottage twice but we would book this one again. We weren't ready to leave.
"A lovely cottage set in unique and beautiful grounds with amazing views (especially from the kitchen)."
Kitchen facilties are new and all rooms are well presented and comfy. All equipment provided and lots of useful information supplied. Gorgeous lemon cake was left for us with a complimentary bottle too...lovely touch! Local areas have endless walks and things to do. Wpuld definitely return.
"Cottage lovely, area great - beautiful walks, near to kielder and hadrians wall."
Local shops excellent, butchers, bakers, coop, greengrocers. We will be back!
"We loved the cottage & the welcome with a lemon drizzle cake, bottle of fizz and flowers was a brilliant touch."
The area is beautiful & despite the weather, coming back to the cosy cottage & a roaring fire, made our break very special. We did have an issue with the heating but Lesley & David handled immediately and helpfull. Definitely recommend!
"Lovely quiet location yet easy to find, shops down the road."
Very comfortable and cosy . Great to see the stars and night sky with no light pollution. Good base for lots of trips out. Thank you!
"Excellent cottage with a really nice welcome pack."
The cottage is well equipped and we had a great break over Christmas, thanks to the owners for leaving a really nice Christmas cake. Bellingham is a nice village only a short riverside walk away complete with all the shops you need as well as 2 cafes and several pubs!
"Very comfortable accommodation."
Flowers,wine,lemon drizzle and milk, everything you needed even a railway bridge on a disused railway in the back garden. Will be booking in the summer to make use of the garden and surrounding area. Highly recommend it.
"The cottage was extremely well equipt with a lot of attention to detail."
Every thing was thought of down to providing kitchen roll. Very clean and comfortable. The area is beautiful with Bellingham just down the road with everything we needed. Bakers,butchers,coop a couple of pubs and a cafe. There is a heritage centre with a lot of info and history. Especially as the old railway runs through the back garden. Thank you for a lovely week full of information and fun.
"We had a lovely time- the cottage was exactly what we wanted to catch up as a family for a family wedding in the Comb."
We played games round the open fire and just chilled. We all appreciated the fresh flowers and the provisions left for us
"The cottage and gardens were absolutely perfect."
The cottage is very welcolming and cosy. We felt very spoilt staying there. The owners had left milk, tea , coffee, wine and a lovely homemade cake, what a wonderul welcome
"The property was excellent, very quiet with lovley views."
Really enjoyed our stay
"The listing was very accurate in most respects but failed to add that there was a tumble dryer, which was great bonus."
The cottage was lovely, comfortable and clean and the welcome pack of a cake, milk and wine was a real treat. There were fresh flowers in the kitchen and living room and the views were glorious. The pretty garden highlight was a path up to an old railway bridge and a short walk to a little spinney with a bench overlooking the Rede valley. Bellingham was a short drive away, handy for shopping, a post office and a cash machine at the Co-Op. It is a twenty minute drive to Kielder and about an hour to the coast, so ideal for getting about. There is a riverside walk if you have dogs, as we do, but otherwise it is not ideal due to the narrow road outside which leads to Bellingham. You need to listen out for oncoming traffic when crossing. That was the only downside. Thoroughly recommend this cottage and would go again.
Very comfortable and clean. Great location with fantastic garden.
"We loved it, beautiful cottage, excellent facilities and the attention to detail and personal touches were beyond expectation."
We will definitely book again.
"Absolutely luv it here been twice now can’t wait to go back ."
. Lesley the owner is fantastic. The homemade cake and wine are a great gesture
"The cottage was very comfortable in every way,great gardens."
Nice furnishings, the only thing that i was a little dissapointed with was the picture taken of the kitchen,its a bit deceiving giving the perception of a large room when actually its much smaller than expected. But i didnt let that put me off, loved the holiday and the cottage. 5*****
"A lovely little cottage, very comfy, spotlessly clean, toasty warm and welcoming."
We thoroughly enjoyed the homemade cake and the bottle of fizz kindly left for us. It's a lovely area with plenty to see and do, don't miss Hareshaw Linn Waterfall and Carriages Tea Room.
"Lovely cottage, clean, comfortable and homely."
Great utility room perfect for dogs. Scenic walk from your doorstep along the river and fields to Bellingham approx. 1 mile (dogs on leads due to sheep!). Would highly recommend.
"Lovely cottage and garden a real treat."
Had a lovely stay with friends and a happy dog!
"Very friendly helpful staff when booking."
The cottage was perfect for our needs, I will be booking for the same week next year.
"One of the best cottages we have rented in years."
Really comfortable and clean. Bottle of fizz and home made cakes a nice touch. Also enough logs and coal for a couple of days but the cottage was warm enough. Lovely location, lots to see and do. If you are lucky enough to have clear skies at night, you are in for a real treat.
"Lovely comfortabel, well equipped cottage , excellent location for exploring ..."
Lovely comfortabel, well equipped cottage , excellent location for exploring Northumberland - would definitely come again
"We had a wonderful week at the cottage, so peaceful and relaxing and everything was so comfortable and considered."
We took our 2 year old daughter and even the cot and high chair we’re good quality and the cot mattress! Loved every minute of our trip, especially the views out of every window.
"No 2 Redeswood is a charming cottage in a very attractive setting."
It is nicely decorated, very comfortable and was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The owners had left us a "welcome' pack, which thoughtfully included basic provisions, a very tasty home baked cake and a bottle of fizzy wine. We found it easy to relax here with plenty to of sights to visit and explore nearby when we were feeling energetic. We only planned a short break on this occasion but would be very happy to stay longer if we have the opportunity in future.
"The cottage was beautifully appointed, comfortable and felt immediately very welcoming (there were also teas, coffee, milk, cake and a bottle of fizz awaiting us on arrival) with everything we needed for the three of us to have a very relaxing holiday."
The garden was interesting to explore, on several levels, with it's own bridge over a disused railway leading from the back garden to a little wooded area, places to sit and admire the views from the front garden, and you could walk in the adjacent fields from the cottage and across the road down to the river. The owners left great information about the local area, saying that they lived just a short distance away if we needed anything, which we didn't as from our point of view they had pretty much thought of everything! The village just a mile away was very convenient for shopping with a small supermarket, bakers, cafes, takeaway etc and the location we found to be generally excellent as a base to explore, with plenty to do within easy reach - we would certainly like to return, both to the area and the cottage.
"Great cottage and amazing scenery."
Owners set up was so welcoming a bottle of fizz and cake made a great first impression.
