  • "The house was really lovely ."

    Beautiful spacious interiors with great outside space and loads of grass for the kids to charge around on. Such a stunning rural area to explore too with so many countryside and coastal attractions. The owners were very responsive to our queries and very kindly invited us to watch sheep shearing one morning which was most appreciated.

  • "We stayed at Fontburn farmhouse for a family gathering with x2 Grandparents and their x2 children each with their own families of x4 and a dog."

    10 in total. X1 of the grandparents is disabled but using a wheelchair into and around the house was no problem. Ground floor bedroom and amenities were perfect. We couldn’t fault the property, exactly how advertised, very clean, very well equipped. It’s a lovely property in a beautiful spot, great for wildlife and star gazing. It was perfect for our needs and we were sad to go home. We all said we could live there inc the dog who loved the outside space! If I had to make improvements I d say move the dishwasher as being in the utility room, it was a bit of a pain ferrying dishes back and forth. On the upside of this it burned some calories and as it sleeps so many there were plenty of hands to help! My husband burnt his hand on the log burner door handle so maybe some heat proof gloves beside log burner would be good ( there may have been some hiding somewhere not obvious to us) He did say he should have known it would be hot but some handles are heat proof. We went back in March when it was colder but I have to say the underfloor heating was super! The log burner was fun ( despite the burn) but not necessary. Smashing stay would 100% come again. We looked to rebook for Aug but was fully booked. Excellent property, well maintained

  • "We had the most wonderful stay at Fontburn Farmhouse."

    What a beautiful property it is! The location is stunning and surrounded by lovely countryside walks (especially the reservoir walk and play park. The house is perfectly equipped, all the things we could have needed were there. We were very grateful for the wonderful hamper of special foods for us. There is a lot of space. We were a group of 10, 6 adults and 4 young children. They loved having so much room to play and enjoy. The beds were ever so comfortable and it was amazing to open the curtains each day to the wildlife. We enjoyed a few clear skies too and the stars are spectacular. The owners couldn't do enough for us when we contacted them to extend our stay for one night. We were really impressed over all. We would absolutely come to Fontburn Farmhouse again.

    House was well equipped and had everything we needed. Only slight issue was, it was a little hot for our liking in the kitchen area. It was our first time exploring this area of the UK but, om certain we'll be going again and would happily use this property again. Hadleigh

    The house and garden are spacious and well-equipped. Everything was in tiptop condition.

  • "An excellent property for a family gathering."

    It is very well equipped, has beautiful linen, and we had a great week (helped by mainly very good weather). Having two separate lounge areas is good when there are different ages and interests in the group. The exterior photo on the website doesn't do the beauty of the site justice.

  • "The house was lovely but was a bit warm."

    It would have been helpful to have better instructions on where to find and how to work the thermostats.

  • "Upon arrival we were most impressed as we turned into the property."

    As soon as you walk through the front door you cannot fail to be impressed. It is well laid out and a great space to share with friends or family but also offers the chance of the quiet space if you want a bit of privacy. The house is finished to a very high standard and all equipment and utensils were top quality. There was even a very nice welcome hamper which was very well received. We had deer in the garden on more than one occasion which was a pleasant surprise. Communication with Jess was 1st class and couldn't be better. Would strongly recommend!!
