  • "Great house and Darren was very helpful when we had a small issue with the hit water , resolved in about 1/2 hour."

    The house suited all our needs as we had 3 generations staying and Darren was very helpful when we asked about specific needs as the oldest was 90. Great location for seeing the area. Welcome pack was really appreciated. We would definitely recommend and are looking at rebooking shortly. Paul

    A beautiful cottage in a lovely area. We also appreciated our welcome pack. There was seven of us and we all said how we all enjoyed it and all of the beds were so comfy too. The Todd Family

  • "This cottage was great for our family holiday."

    Lots of space and bedrooms. We were a party of 6 adults and 3 children + 1 dog. The weather was very wet so having space and hiding places for hide and seek was perfect. Darren was very welcoming and attentive and the welcome pack was appreciated by us all.

  • "We had a fabulous family holiday."

    Great Coach House with everything you needed and more. Lovely and warm to come back to after a day exploring. Plenty of space for 10 people - 3 generations. Children enjoyed feeding the chickens. Great location. Would really recommend. The welcome pack was just what we needed to kick start the holiday. Thanks Darren for a great stay.

  • "The coach house is on the face of it is a nice quirky large property suitable for large or small groups with plenty of room, while it is rustic being an old property our experience was not a good one, we were left four days without any hot water, the owner was contacted numerous times but did nothing, other than to suggest running the water for a very long time."

    This ruined the holiday and experience, when I personally contacted the owner via text there wasn't even an apology so I feel I have no option but to leave a negative review and sadly would not recommend, this holiday was booked for me via a friend to be a low stress experience for me, it was sadly anything but that. Darren

    This isn’t quite true, is it? There was ample hot water for all the showers. Unfortunately a sticking timer meant there was no hot water for a bath for two days. This was quickly remedied. You weren’t the person who booked the holiday. In fact I’ve no idea who you are. If you check with your friend who did book, you will find they texted me twice…not “numerous” times. They were extremely dramatic and rude, turning what was really a minor inconvenience into a catastrophe. They were offered the chance to leave but instead wanted to continue complaining for a, by then, non-existent problem. No mention of the wine, chocolate, flowers, eggs and fruit left for you, the comfortable warm house with its great location. Let’s hope you never have to experience a real drama…..I can’t imagine how you’d cope. Oh and thanks for leaving both ovens covered in thick grease. That to me, is a real catastrophe. I have no idea how I will cope! Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful 70th birthday party here."

    Accommodation was spacious for 8adults, 2small children and a dog. Bedroom at the front is near the road but traffic noise is not an problem but no bathroom adjacent to this room. Superb king size beds and plenty of towels, hot water and heating. More glasses would be ideal. Loads to see in local area and beyond. We had fabulous meals at local pub and in Collingwood Arms. Owner was on hand to deal with any issues-mixer part of kitchen tap came away and caused a temporary water fountain! We would recommend this property.

  • "We wanted a break to suit our family needs and wishes: downstairs bedroom and bathroom for aged parents, an open fire or log burner, a dining table for eating and jigsaw puzzles and a decent kitchen."

    The Coach House met all of this and provided excellent comfort. Everyone commented on the quality of the beds and bathrooms, it's fabulously spacious, easy access and parking. The Bluebell Inn just a two-minute walk provided great meals and the trips to Berwick and Kelso were easy. Darren is an excellent host and made sure everything was fine for us during our stay. We would recommend the cottage to others and we will certainly consider a future stay.

Nestled in Northumberland’s countryside in the charming village of Crookham near Cornhill-on-Tweed is The Coach House.

Recognised as the oldest unfortified building in Northumberland, this wonderful holiday home benefits from an array of characterful features paying homage to its vivid history, including original stone flooring, gothic windows, Grade II listed staircase and doors and exposed beams and a wonderful setting close to Northumberland National Park and the Scottish Borders; the perfect setting for families or friends looking to explore the North with three of their beloved canine companions.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and unwind on the plush sofas in the sitting room while the gentle crackle of the open fire warms the room.

Later, head into the fully-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up tasty meals for the whole family that can be enjoyed as a group around the dining table.

Step outside to admire the last of the sun on the patio or to burn off the last of your dog's energy in the two acres of paddocks.

When the evening draws to a close head inside to wash off the day in either the ground-floor shower room or the first-floor bathroom before retiring to one of five well-appointed bedrooms; choose from a king-size with en-suite, two king-sizes and two ground-floor king-sizes.
