"Wayside is a delightful cottage in a small idyllic community."
For a solo traveller or couple wanting to walk and explore the region, it is perfect. Everything is thought-out well in the cottage, and (with luck) you can park 6 feet from the front door. There is no store in Edmundbyers, so do come prepared. But the Derwent Arms is a terrific Pub and the BAA is a great small diner as well.
Thank you so much for your review, and I’m really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Wayside, it was great to meet you and enjoy the rest of your travels! Jenna.. Property Owner
"A comfortable and well equipped Cottage and biscuits and fresh eggs very welcome from Jenna."
A good place to stay with lots of places to visit and lovely walks close by, also there’s a good pub - the Baa Bar for pizzas and a chat with the locals. I loved the vintage frog tiles in the bathroom, they made me smile each morning!
"Another fabulous stay in this gorgeous cottage."
Gets better every time we go. Everything about it is perfect!
Thank you ever so much Liz, and it was lovely to have you back to stay again! I’m so pleased you love our little Wayside Cottage so much. Jenna. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage that is well equipped."
A great location for exploring the local area. We would definitely stay again.
"The cottage is beautiful, cosy and full of character."
It was spotless and well equipped. The owner lives a few minutes drive away and is lovely. The village is peaceful, and has a couple of excellent pubs. It’s a perfect location for exploring the area. Lots of good walks, and places to visit.
Thank you so much for your very kind review, it means so much. Jenna. Property Owner
Very comfortable and warm. Village very friendly. The Baa bar has great homemade pizzas and is open every day. The Derwent Arms was open Wednesday to Sunday and has great food. The area is stunning with plenty of walks and things to see and do.
Thanks so much Stuart, so pleased you enjoyed our lovely cottage and village! Hope to see you again sometime. Jenna. Property Owner
"Could do with a set of sharper knives if intending to do much cooking!"
Thank you for your feedback on your stay at Wayside Cottage. The knives are actually very new, only purchased last year, 2021, and there is also a knife sharpener in the utensil drawer. As a very keen cook, having a good set of kitchen knives are an absolute necessity. Property Owner
"What a lovely cottage."
Spacious, cosy, warm, relaxing, all possible needs met. It was just lovely to eat our breakfast and the occasional evening meal at the table in the bay window within sight of the greenery and flowers. A small table and 2 chairs at the front of the cottage bathed in sunshine was a lovely unexpected extra. A smashing place to stay. 6 organic eggs left for us were delicious scrambled.
"This is a deightful, well equipped cottage."
Perfectly situated for local walks and to travel from for visits further away. The cottage itself felt well cared for, waiting for very special visit! A real treat. Highly recomend.
Thank you so much Ana, I’m so pleased you enjoyed Wayside and the beautiful surroundings here in the North Pennines. Jenna. Property Owner
"We were met by Jenna who provided us with lovely homemade scones and fresh eggs from her hens."
Wayside Cottage is immaculate and full of .character in a perfect situation a stones throw from two excellent pubs - the Derwent Arms for excellent food and the Baa for a chat with the friendly locals. The furnishings in the cottage were of excellent quality and if its peace and quiet you are looking for beside a log burning stove in the evening you can't go wrong. Our mobile wifi worked perfectly but we had to walk a few yards uphill for a phone signal. Jemma has gone out of her way to ensure that the cottage will provide the perfect break.
"Wonderful cosy cottage in friendly village, excellent base for touring North pennines, Northumberland, keilder and Durham areas."
Host very attentive and left us some beautiful eggs from her chickens, we enjoyed not having any Internet or phone signal (it is possible in the Punch Bowl pub) made it a true escape holiday.
"This cottage is so cosy and had everything that we needed."
The fresh eggs and milk were very welcome. The area was amazing if you love walking which we do. Would definitely recommend this cottage. The village was very friendly and both local pubs very welcoming.
"The welcome was good and request for more logs rapidly sorted."
"Lovely cottage, in a small village."
Pub opposite has great food and very friendly staff. Weather was better than was predicted so managed to do lots of walking and my husband went running nearly every morning over the moors. Would highly recommend this cottage as it’s a brilliant size for two people, there is no WiFi but that did not bother us as we were out so much. Just one thing the cottage could do with is a new mattress, I struggle with my back and shoulder and just could not get comfortable so did not sleep to well. We will definitely be back next year, still so much to see and do in the area.
"We loved our stay in Wayside Cottage."
The large bed and bedroom were really comfortable and corner bath well used for relaxation after long dog walks. Everything we needed to cook was there and the log burner also helped us to have a chilled stay. The cottage is situated in a peaceful spot, within easy location to Derwent Reservoir with its many paths so walking our dog Charlie was easy. Really handy was a one minute walk to the pub where our Sunday lunch was good with staff welcoming. The owners were very welcoming and friendly with some kind extra touches such as fresh eggs! Advice was given about local walks, places of interest and eateries. We would highly recommend Wayside and stay again! The owners other B & B accommodation also looked appealing.
"Only issue was no Wi Fi."
This did not give us any problems as the weather was excellent and we where not in the cottage in the day.. However if the weather forecast had been accurate ??? we would have maybe been in doors more.. This would not put us off rebooking however some couples might expect Wi Fi included in this day and age. The cottage was a delight and the pub which is 50 yds away was warm and friendly and served good food. Accommodation was clean and for couple the size of the cottage was more than adequate.. the bed was also a good size and conformable .
"This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely quiet little village with walking practically from the doorstep and just round the corner from the village pub."
It has everything you need and Jenna left milk, biscuits and fresh eggs from her hens which were very welcome. The cottage is even better than the pictures, very roomy for two and the bedroom is huge with an en suite and dressing room . Pow Hill Country Park, just a short walk up the road is well worth a visit. The only thing that was disappointing was the lack of a village shop, nearest is 5 miles away, but Blanchland, where the nearest shop is, has a lovely tea room, well worth a visit if you're popping up the road for milk.
"A fantastic little cottage in a beautiful location."
Everything you could need for a holiday and lovely hosts. I highly recommend staying here. There is also so much to do in the local area-I felt I barely scratched the surface in a week. I will be back!
"The cottage far exceeded our expectations:the photographs do not really do justice to the interior of the cottage which was full of wonderful touches."
The location was excellent-central to many different attractions with great road links
"This cottage was perfect for our stay in this beautiful part of the country."
It was a really cosy, warm cottage with all amenities we needed and lots of homely touches. We particularly liked the wood burner to return to after being out all day exploring the area. Being sited between the N Pennines and Northumberland National Park we didn’t have to travel too far to visit tremendous historic sites and beautiful walks, enjoying the Autumnal colours. There were two pubs within 2 minutes walk, one with great food available and the other a real local ‘Baa’ with friendly locals. All in all our experience couldn’t have been any better, this was the best cottage we have rented for the two of us and our dog.
"Absolutely fantastic cottage."
If you want somewhere relaxing and comfortable to stay, this is the place for you. I don't usually tend to post reviews, but this place deserves it. Excellent, friendly hosts and a beautiful cosy cottage. You will not be disappointed if you book to stay here!
Clean and very dog friendly.Welcome pack on arrival. Jenna the owner was a great host. Ideal location for exploring the North Pennines. Great local food and drink.
"Thanks to Jenna for providing us with such a wonderful cottage It was spotless and was probably the best cottage we have stayed in we will definately be back!"
"The cottage was the best we have ever stayed in."
We were given a very warm welcome. We have stayed in this and surrounding areas for the last 7 years, and this is by far the best we have ever experienced.
"A lovely cosy warm cottage with everything we needed."
Great location, easy access to attractions. Pub in village, dog friendly, with excellent food, cask ales and friendly staff. We would happily stay here again.
"Very warm and cosy cottage in the country."
"We experienced some extreme gales whilst we were there."
However outside shutters on bathroom fan were being blown by the wind and the noise made it very difficult to sleep even with bathroom door closed. May need modern one. WiFi would be very useful as phone signal poor. Locals very friendly and local pub served lovely food and they were all very welcoming of us and the dog. Cottage was cosy and practical for bringing dog and walking paraphernalia. Good location for visiting lots of locations
"We found the cottage to be located in a great location for touring the area and the village itself was very pleasant with a great local pub."
We would like to return one day to explore the area fully as we found a week wasn't long enough to do it justice.
"Quaint cottage with a modern twist in a beautiful location."
"Wayside is a very nice cottage close to pub and local shop."
The only problem we found was the smell from the oil fired heating system which seemed very strong at times Otherwise a great little getaway complete with the most snow we have seen in a very long time!
"We have just had a week at wayside cottage, highly recommend lovely cottage very friendly owners and locals lovely pub across the road and beautiful surroundings all within short drives."
"ANOTHER COTTAGE IN A PERFECT LOCATION."
VIEWS EVERYWHERE AND PLENTY OF PLACES TO GO IN ALL DIRECTIONS. PEACE AND QUIET FOR A CHANGE. THE OWNERS WERE NEARBY AND READY TO HELP OR ADVISE.
"We have left constructive feedback to the owners about minor additions to make using local facilities easier."

A charming, stone-built, end of terrace cottage situated in a wonderful position in the centre of the village of Edmundbyers, this cottage dates back to 1759 and has been converted from a former cow byre.
Retaining much of its original charm and character, and decorated and furnished in a traditional style, this cosy Edmundbyers cottage provides well-equipped and comfortable accommodation.
