  • "I would say to the owners of the barn…."

    . We had a lovely stay but concur with previous guests remarks about the dishwasher of which we cleaned all the filters which were caked in brown gunk! and still it left all the top racks of dishes wet! We also had to give the oven a good clean before we started to use it as well! Some dinning chairs wonky too! But on the plus side, the Wi-Fi was great, so presume that has been updated and the garden and view and general overall stay was great. Thank you.

  • "Beautiful cottage and location, ideal for sharing with families or friends as the communal living space was ideal."

    However, parts do need upgrading especially the kitchen. The dishwasher was very old and not washing properly (the water sprayer arm kept falling off) The halogen hob kept cutting out and has to be switched off at the mains to reboot it. One of the patio doors wouldn’t open and generally looked like they all need replacing. The dining chairs were dangerous to sit on because most of the metal legs were loose, definitely need replacing! We were disappointed to not have the Nespresso coffee machine or the use of the tumble dryer listed in the summary…If these items were replaced it would definitely get five star rating!

  • "This was the 3rd time we have booked this property because is was suitable for our location to work in."

    It will be the last time we use it. The Wifi is terrible, i had notified the owner, nothing was done to fix the issue. The property is ok, with alot of potential if the owner bothered to fix the issues. We booked a 4 night stay and on night 2 the oil ran out and the owner couldnt get an oil delivery until the Friday, the day we were leaving. therefore we had no heat for 3 nights. This is totallly unacceptable. This is the responsibility of the owner to keep on top off. Communications were non existant with the owner, not even an apology for the heating problem. I will not be recommending this property to anyone, i really dont think the owner cares that much about the people to pay to stay. Very poor service.

  • "Beautiful property, very spacious, clean and tidy."

    Lovely gardens and outside space.Lovely comfortable beds. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, second time staying and booked for a third stay. Highly recommended. A small issue with wifi signal, but not too much of an issue.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at the accommodation."

    Guests using the double rooms did mention that the mattresses were uncomfortable and needed replacing and we couldn't get the extractor fan in the cooker hood to work. Apart from that we were very impressed with the cottage and all facilities.

  • "READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE BOOKING A comfortable and very warm barn conversion."

    Spacious and could be ideal for a large party of family or friends, however I was pleased not to be catering for 8, as the number of trays/pots and dishes were limited. Disappointing to see that maintenance issues which were reported some time ago have still not been resolved.

  • "When we arrived the property was cold."

    The boiler was actually in reset mode. This was soon resolved. We found that all the kitchen equipment was not adequately cleaned. This to was resolved with washing 70% of cookware. The major problem was the lack of WiFi and poor mobile connection. Sadly it was necessary for me to have to contact 999 ambulance service twice in the space of 5 days. In my opinion the premises has good potential. But,unfortunately, until these problems are rectified I would not recommend the premises to anyone I know.

    steps to front door have no handrail and are moss covered ( i fell down the steps). side door is down a pebbled path and is overgrown by trees. poor lighting in lounge, outside table in very poor condition and no visable sign of any outside wi-fi no mobile phone signal and no landline. i would hate to have had a emergency. on the plus points good selection of wild life, 25 pheasants on lawn on one night, normally 10-12 on most nights.

    Not having visited the area before, having no WiFi made it difficult to discover new places to visit that was dog and wheelchair friendly Otherwise, a lovely cottage and extremely comfortable

  • "The lack of WiFi was surprising in this day and age."

    The beds were a bit uncomfortable and although a table tennis table was one of the facilities offered there were no balls to play with. The property itself is lovely and good for those with dogs and although my comments above are negative the overall experience was very positive. They also brought a lovely hamper of food on arrival which is the best I’ve ever seen.

  • "Nicely renovated barn, ideal for a large family or two families sharing."

    Lovely communal dining/kitchen area, with four good sized bedrooms. Even though the properly, at first glance, appears to be located in the middle of nowhere, it is actually very convenient for local attractions such as Alnwick, Bamburgh, and Holy Island. The local Co-op is conveniently only four or so miles away in Belford. I would stay in this property again.
