Great location for sight seeing lots of things around to do. Pub and shop within walking distance. Only a small shop so you would need to get things in elsewhere. Pub served fantastic food. Lots of walks great for dogs around too. House was clean, really warm and comfortable. Hot tub was great enjoyed watching the stars in it. Only down side could do with more cleaning products being available otherwise fantastic stay. Reviewed by Natalie5.0★Feb 2024 "Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location , it so exceeded our expectations , the hot tub was an excellent addition and the kids loved it ." Northumberland is a fantastic place and will will definitely be back Reviewed by Glenn4.7★Dec 2023 "We had a very restful weekend at this lovely cottage." It is well-equipped, very warm and we made good use of the hot tub. The enclosed rear garden was great for our dog too. We enjoyed a Sunday lunch at the nearby Bay Horse pub, and the post office is very handy for supplies. A lovely visit that we hope to repeat next year sometime. Reviewed by Jill5.0★Dec 2023 "A delightful cottage with a secure garden and a fab hot tub." It's so well situated for visiting places. The wood burner was great when it was chilly. A curtain across the front door would add to that cosy feeling. We used the rear door and kept the front door locked as the road is quite fast, but really quiet in the evening. The A68 is a great road to drive. Lots of walks directly from the cottage, starting just behind the pub. Reviewed by Jane5.0★Nov 2023 "Lovely presented cottage, the welcome pack was fabulous." Great communication with the owner prior. The hot tub was a hit, the village pub is a gem. Fab cottage. Just to note for future guests items such as washing up liquid etc are not provided, this wasn’t a problem. Fab walks in local area. Would definitely recommend. Reviewed by Heather5.0★Oct 2023 "Be aware the cottage is on a busy A road, so kids and dogs need to be supervised when you open the front door." However, road noise is not a big issue. The local pub is excellent and offers a discount to those staying at Crag View. The owners provided a very generous welcome pack, although we would have happily swapped a tube of Pringles for an extra toilet roll! Reviewed by Rachel4.4★Oct 2023 "Cottage was very comfortable and clean." There are some welcome additions, such as the hot tub and I loved having the slow cooker, so you could come home to a prepared meal. The sun room overlooking the garden was lovely. There is a pub within walking distance and the post office/shop, a few doors away was useful if you suddenly ran out of something and didn't want to travel to the nearest small town. Stunning walks on the doorstep. A few additions would make this 5 star, providing robes for the hot tub, providing cleaning products, (which most people replace as they use them up), and a few extras in the kitchen, (such as toast rack, measuring jug, butter dish and plastic storage tubs). We enjoyed our stay and are certain anyone else would too. Reviewed by Gillian4.7★Sep 2023 "Lovely cottage and garden." We were not aware that the busy road was so close to the cottage. So we expected a more quiet place. Reviewed by Margo4.4★Jun 2023 "Fantastic, comfortable well appointed cottage in such a beautiful area." The hot tub and garden was a real bonus. A real home from home to come back to each day. Thank you! Reviewed by Rachel5.0★May 2023 "Beautifully maintained cottage with a lovely enclosed rear garden perfect if you have a dog." Ideally located within a short walk of a great pub serving good food every evening with very welcoming staff. Hosts provided a very generous welcome pack which was very much appreciated. Bed extremely comfortable and we were not disturbed by any traffic noise. Lounge area had plenty of seating and as the accommodation was on one level we had no concern about our dog trying to go upstairs.

The area is super cute, and is a really fantastic location to explore Northumberland. The welcome basket was a lovely touch. We loved it Reviewed by Mark5.0★Feb 2023 "Exactly as advertised, very clean and all the amenities you could need." Hot tub a big hit with the family! Reviewed by Ashley4.7★Feb 2023 "Perfect cottage for a peaceful retreat and base for exploring beautiful countryside." Cottage beautiful and homely, couldn't have been made better. Welcome pack left by owners was very generous and filled with luxury foodstuffs. Thank you Reviewed by Lynda5.0★Jan 2023 "My wife is asmatic, on entering the cottage she immediately became breathless due to the number of air diffusers, we immediately removed the and she quickly recovered." This apart our stay was very enjoyable, the cottage is clean and has everything you need. People have mentioned traffic noise but to be honest, A, look where its located! B, it is hardly disturbing, and from evening very little traffic. The hot tub is lovely and a relaxing way to end the day. Overall we had a lovely relaxing week and will certainly revisit. Reviewed by Gary5.0★Nov 2022 "Lovely cosy cottage in a quiet location." Nice walks, great little local pub and plenty places to visit nearby. Will definitely return and would highly recommend Reviewed by Diane5.0★Oct 2022 "The welcome pack was great but it would have been helpful if some basic cleaning items like a couple of dishwasher tablets and some washing up liquid had also been left." Reviewed by Clare5.0★Oct 2022 "We had a lovely stay at Crag View and will definitely be returning - we rarely visit the same place twice so that says it all!" The cottage was clean, well equipped and the furniture is so comfortable. Even struggled to get out of bed some mornings to explore the beautiful Northumberland, it was that cosy. Hot tub was so relaxing after long days out and well maintained by Paul who popped by every morning to check the water quality. The pub down the road, literally a 2 minute walk, is great. Very friendly, including dog friendly, and the food really good. Loved every minute of our stay and will be booking again in the near future. Thank you! Reviewed by Meredith4.7★Oct 2022 "Lovely welcome pack , Very clean and comfortable Loved the Hot Tub" Reviewed by David5.0★Sep 2022 "The welcome pack was very much appreciated as the nearest supermarket would be in Hexham, nothing really local." The living area was clean and tidy and slightly unusual in layout with the toilet- bathroom being furthest away from the bedrooms. The outside paved area was uneven and slightly slippery path from the conservatory to the decked area due to moss and residue from the trees. The main concern outside was the uneven pathway due to what looked like tree roots raising the paving slabs. Reviewed by Andrew3.1★Sep 2022 "Really enjoyed our stay in an immaculately clean and welcoming cottage which was well equipped and very comfortable." The welcome pack was one of the best we have experienced and I must say the information pack left with where to go and what to do was great. The hot tub was maintained daily, but we were not disturbed at all by the owners. Overall everything was very good and I would recommend this cottage as a restful retreat within easy reach of all the lovely areas of Northumberland. Reviewed by Cheryl5.0★Jun 2022 "The cottage was perfectly positioned to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Northumberland." It was a very comfortable and we relaxed from day 1. Hot Tub was great after a good walk & the garden was a perfect sun trap as we had a very hot sunny week. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning Reviewed by Julie5.0★Jun 2022 "The property is really lovely Laura & Paul provide excellent communication and present the Cottage to a very high Standard." The little garden and Hot tub are an additional gem. The welcome pack is beyond doubt the best we’ve ever had! The hosts are on hand whenever you need them and nothing is too much trouble. Excellent Hosts 5⭐️ Our only suggest would be to state in the Facilities that The “Smart TV” only provides Apps and has no basic channels live. You get used to it but it gives clarity to prospective clients. Reviewed by Christine4.7★May 2022 "We have just come back from a week at Crag View and would echo what others have said about the cottage being both delightful and comfortable." The large, homely living room was lovely, and the kitchen was superbly equipped. The hot tub was a real treat at the end of the day, and spotlessly clean, whilst the secure enclosed garden was perfect for our small dog. That said, we were unprepared for (and not used to) the noise from the A68; HGV’s during the week and motorbikes at the weekend. For that reason, we will not be returning. If this cottage were away from the road, it would have been a 5 star review because everything else was just perfect. When we complained to Sykes that the photographs of "views across the fields" were a bit misleading as they cut off the road, the representative rather (un)helpfully said that it was our own fault for not doing our homework as the listing gives a link to Google Maps. So, don't be like us, do your homework. In our defence, our original booking somewhere else was cancelled by Sykes and Crag View was our only alternative option at short notice. If you don't mind road noise you will love this cottage. Reviewed by Doug4.4★May 2022 "What a wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage." Really enjoyed our stay couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely be returning in the future. Reviewed by Edward5.0★Mar 2022 "We opened the front door and we all just stood there and said Wow!" !

Like home from home and in such a lovely location too. After walking in the day then hot tub in the evening followed by sitting around the log burner was a perfect day. This was February, I bet it’s even more fantastic through Spring and Summer. We would 100% return and recommend. Reviewed by Clair5.0★Feb 2022 "This is a lovely cottage renovated to a very high standard." The main bedroom is incredibly comfy, the hot tub was perfect after a long walk. The property is toddler friendly as it's mainly all on one level and carpeted. The owners were also incredibly friendly and quick to respond to any queries we had.

Entry into a very large living room with modern furniture and a big inglenook fireplace with log burner. The kitchen is newly fitted, with all the mod cons and kitchenware that you could hope for. Bedrooms were clean and well fitted, although we only used the main bedroom. King size bed (very comfy), fitted wardrobes, iron and board, hairdryer, Hoover all provided. Bedding and towels provided. Garden was neat and tidy and we made full use of the hot tub and chimnea. Hot tub was serviced daily by the owner, who is a really friendly guy. All logs/kindling provided. Can’t forget to mention the welcome pack on arrival with tea/coffee/sugar/biscuits and a bottle of fizz (and a bottle of milk in the fridge).
