It’s a lovely property and had everything you need for a great holiday, The owner was very welcoming and so kind to leave us an extra special welcome gift … thank you, The house was perfect for us and in a great location, we would all highly recommend it. Thank you. Reviewed by Lisa4.7★Sep 2023 "A lovely large comfortable property." Everything is provided and it was clean and tidy. Lovely views out and a nice place to sit outside when the weather allows. Only one downside really with the water, it is quite brown and smells and tastes awful, sorry to be negative about this, but it did matter. Reviewed by Julie4.4★Sep 2023 "Lovely spacious holiday home in an idillic quiet farm location with easy access to the village of Lowick, coast and all local attractions." Perfect dog friendly home. However, the smell whilst vacuuming from all previous doggy guests was overpowering! Kitchen was well stocked with crockery and utensils, we just missed having some plastic/bamboo beakers and ramekins. Overall a superb holiday home. Reviewed by Tricia4.1★Aug 2023 "We loved every bit of the cottage." Very clean, very spacious allowing us a much needed switch off from the world for a week.We also appreciated the groceries provided upon arrival. Great shower facilities, comfortable beds and lounge furniture. Well stocked kitchen and the pool table was extensively used. Smart TV's were enjoyed by the kids. Many thanks from us all. Stuart Reviewed by Stuart4.7★Jul 2023 "Lovely spacious house, very well presented and clean." The owner was lovely to deal with too. The views from the living area are amazing, what a treat to come down to in the morning! The pool table was a big hit with everyone and the dogs loved the large enclosed garden. My only suggestion would be to maybe have a small clothes line/rotary outside for drying items not suited for the dryer. All in all, would highly recommend. Reviewed by Candice5.0★Jul 2023 "Spent a week at Shepherds House with all the family , we all had a fabulous time." Great location,so quite and peaceful. The house was absolutely amazing , lots of space both inside and out. The house is well equipped . Lovely welcome pack provided by Suzie who came to welcome us all on our first day. Such a lovely lady , very helpful with lots of information about the surrounding area. We all would highly recommend Shepherds House, comfy beds, comfy lounge to relax in and a pool table that played host to a pool knockout competition . Thank you so much Suzie. Reviewed by Teresa5.0★Jun 2023 "A lovely warm property with up to date equipment." Cleanliness was to a high standard. Great kitchen and views to fields beyond. Shepherd's House was handy for visiting wonderful places like Bamburgh, Wooler, castles, Seahouses, Beadnell, beaches and even Edinburgh. Susies and Lars were excellent hosts who were able to help us with all our needs. A totally cosy feeling about this 5 star property. We'll be back x Hi John, so glad you had a great weeks stay in Northumberland. Many thanks for great feedback. Susie Property Owner Reviewed by John5.0★Apr 2023 "Susie is a great host and very helpful with any questions we raised." She owns a fabulous property which suited everyone's needs. The Pool Room was a great hit with children and adults alike. Six adults and two children and a great time was had by all. This is a perfect property for a family holiday, very well equipped and much appreciated by a mixed age group. Ideally situated to reach major attractions and beaches and enjoys very good local hostelries and eating establishments. The food at the local shop in Lowick is superb and home made - well worth a visit. The Black Bull is great pub which takes dogs in the bar and provides excellent food. We hope to return next year as there is still plenty to see and do in the area. So glad you enjoyed your stay, thank you for lovely feedback. Susie Property Owner Reviewed by Lesley5.0★Apr 2023 "Spotlessly clean and comfortable." Nicely decorated and well equipped. Next to a working farm, but not disturbed by any noise. Single track to the house is quite bumpy but worth it as it is a good location to explore the surrounding areas. Thank you for your feedback, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We have spoken with Northumberland County Council many times re the state of the council road to the farm.....unfortunately we don't appear to be high on their list! Thank you for not being put off.

Rooms were set up as requested and were spacious, beds were large and comfortable and the place was very clean and tidy upon arrival. Would be an ideal place to return to in the summer. Reviewed by Rebecca5.0★Nov 2022 "We had a lovely stay at shepherd's house, very warm and roomy for all the family." Would definitely recommend staying here . Reviewed by Jane5.0★Nov 2022 "Very large, light, bright and airy well equipped house in the middle of nowhere surrounded by sheep and fields." A perfect escape for city dwellers. Super cosy and extremely comfy beds. Six 60+ ladies thoroughly enjoyed a fun filled annual getaway and would highly recommend this house for a break. Visits to Etal and Ford are a must as well as the Clydesdales at Hay Farm. We went over Halloween and the village of Etal was completely decked out in Halloween spooky costumes with a trail for children. Defo worth taking your children and grandchildren to see. Reviewed by Sheila5.0★Oct 2022 "Great property lots of space and quality units." The only unknown was the Bore Hole water which was always discoloured. Reviewed by Nick4.7★Oct 2022 "We had such a lovely holiday , the house was everything we hoped it would be, so relaxing, the pool" Reviewed by Leanne5.0★Oct 2022 "Perfect location, quiet and peaceful" Reviewed by Royston5.0★Sep 2022 "Beautiful property in a lovely peaceful setting; yet close to some fabulous attractions." The owners have created an amazing holiday home. The pool table was a big hit for the whole family and there were loads of pots, pans and cutlery which is often in short supply in holiday lets. The only feedback we would give is that soap, bin liners and toilet rolls were in short supply (not all bathrooms had soap provided) and given the standard of accommodation and the price paid, we would have expected that finer details like this would have been in place. Saying that, the owners were super helpful and did bring down extras. Also the en suite bathrooms would definitely benefit from a shelf in the shower for shampoo etc and somewhere to store toiletries. This would help older and less able visitors who can't bend to get their shampoo. Reviewed by Yvonne5.0★Jul 2022 "What an incredible cottage!" The best I have ever visited. I cannot recommend this property enough for a large family or 2 families. There's so much space, everything is so well equipped. The beds are so comfy, I never wanted to leave. The living room is fab, lots of seating, with the opening doors, plus we had 30 degree sunny weather so these stayed open all the time. It has an amazing wall map which kept us entertained in the evening. It's perfect for dogs and children, the garden felt safe and enclosed. For children (and adults) it also had Netflix, plus all the usual TV essentials, good Wifi. The pool table was loved. There's a lot of farm animals close to the cottage, which we thought was great! I miss waking up to mooing cows. The surrounding area has so much to do. The local corner shop in Lowick was incredible for cakes and baked goods. The Lowick pubs were also great and a 20 minute walk from the cottage. The Holy Island is only a 15 min drive away, that's well worth a visit. Bamburgh / Bamburgh castle is also only 15 min drive away. It has breath taking views and beaches. We visited Berwick upon Tweed, Paxton House, Ford & Etal - all great tourist locations. Nowhere was over crowded, it was a very peaceful part of the country to visit. We'll definitely be back very soon. :) 10/10 Thank you for your comments Kirsty, glad you all had a great week. Property Owner Reviewed by Kirsty5.0★Jul 2022 "We loved the layout and the spaciousness of the property which is not done justice by the photographs." The large rear enclosed garden was brilliant for the dogs to run around freely- under supervision—and the children to play safely.Loved the peaceful situation with just the animals for company. Nit picking—we would have liked a couple of smaller saucepans for individual breakfasts; some shelving in the en-suites/ bathroom, and a larger dustbin. Overall a brilliant stay in a beautiful house in one of my favourite parts of the country. Reviewed by Judith5.0★Jul 2022 "Spacious modern property situated just over a mile from Lowick." Clean and well equipped with a very helpful owner. Ideal for exploring Holy Island and the Cheviots. Reviewed by Paul James4.7★Jun 2022 "Great House & great location" Reviewed by Mark5.0★Jun 2022 "Excellent holiday property with lots of space inside and out." Large and comfortable beds, powerful showers and a large well stocked kitchen. Lovely views of the countryside and local animals. Great location as a base for exploring Northumberland and over the Scottish border. Susie responded quickly and throughly to any queries we had. Highly recommended! Reviewed by Chris5.0★May 2022 "Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and the house was perfectly suitable for the nature of our group." Any issues were relatively minor and in the main related to the bathrooms & showers. All of us made reference to the fact that there was no shelf or rack within the shower to put toiletries. As a result the only option was to put gels and shampoo on the shower floor. With all of us in or around our mid 60's at best and some with mobility issues this was not an ideal situation and given that the provision of something to resolve the problem seems so easy, we would recommend that the owner look in to this. It would certainly have improved our experience of the facility, The same issue applies to the bathroom itself where there is nowhere to put toiletries. Many of us found placement of the mirrors in the bathrooms to be a bit on the high side. Finally, the check in / check out times are very restrictive even though we appreciate the effect that Covid has had on the holiday cottage industry but it does feel as though we have lost almost a day of our stay in the house as they are currently set. Reviewed by Sylvia3.8★May 2022 "A fantastic house which we really enjoyed staying in." Very spacious, very comfortable and beautifully designed and decorated. The house is in the countryside with lovely scenic views and with rabbits, sheep and birds at the back and cows at the front. We walked to the pub which is dog friendly and served good food. Northumberland is beautiful and we visited many castles, beaches and villages, We went across the Scottish Borders a couple of times and even walked across the sands to Holy Island when the tide was out. This is a lovely house to return to after a long day of sightseeing and walking and Northumberland is a beautiful place with lots to see. Reviewed by Paul5.0★Apr 2022 "Wow! The pictures to this house do not do it justice." It’s so big, loads of room. 6 of us stayed here for 5 days and we had so much room and we’re not on top of each other. The kitchen was well equipped, the bedrooms were lovely and spacious, and having the added games room for pool was great! Highly recommend! Reviewed by Graeme4.7★Apr 2022 "A fantastic house with fantastic views including the rabbits hopping about outside!" Very well stocked kitchen and comfortable seating in lounge. House was warm and pool table was much appreciated. The beds were exceptionally warm and comfortable and everyone had an excellent night’s sleep. House was near Berwick on Tweed for shopping in big Tesco’s and near all the main attractions. Visited steam railway, Pot -a -Doodle, Lindisfarne, Bamborough Castle, Cragside, Alnwick Castle and Hay farm to see shire horses. Brenda Calver Reviewed by Brenda5.0★Apr 2022 "Shepherds House is spacious and relaxing." Comfortable seating and bedding with a choice of bathing or showering. Great views of the rural landscape and in the distance, The Cheviot Hills. Hearing the sound of birds, sheep and cows makes this location truly relaxing. Exploring the beautiful coast or visiting inland attractions were only a short distance away travelling on very quiet roads. Five Stars from us, thank you! Many thanks Paul, glad you enjoyed your stay.

The property was warm and welcoming and above all quiet, a world away from our busy lives back home. We were amazed at the amount of facilities provided including the pool table, spacious both inside and out - couldn't ask for any more. We had a very restful break, enjoyed the view aross to the snow capped Cheviots, and walks with the dog along the lane and along to the very welcoming Black Bull in Lowick village. BTW a superb Sunday lunch enjoyed by all! Location was ideal and only a few miles to Lindisfarne and one of the best beaches (& dunes) we visited at Cheswick.

There was also a large-scale map of the area on the living room wall (useful for positioning ourselves in the area), a warm utility room (great for drying out boots at the end of each long day of walking), warm rooms, hot showers and comfortable bedrooms. The only minor suggestions for improvements would be to have toilet roll holders on the bathroom walls and a hook or two for clothes... but otherwise, Shepherds House helped to make a wonderful week of walking with good friends even better. Thank you. Julia (one of the party) Reviewed by Caroline5.0★Oct 2021 "The housewas wonderful - spacious, warm, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms." The best equipped kitchen I have come across. We loved playing pool in the evening. Two TVs so no arguments. Light, bright with stunning views towards the Cheviots. Whilst we didn't use them there is a good washing machine and tumble drier. Fab fridge. What more can I say? Just 2 things - a better corkscrew for those whose wine is not in screwtop bottles! And directions on how to use the wonderful cooker. I couldn't get the grill to work. Reviewed by Nigel5.0★Oct 2021 "Shepherds House is a fairly new build in a quiet country location near Lowick." Very comfortable with new fixtures and fittings including a pool table. Suggested upgrade might include more coat hooks(in bedrooms), and storage cabinets in the large bathroom. Lacked cleaning items, cloths and products so not easy to leave in a pristine state which we normally try to do. Broom but no dustpan for example though there was a hoover. Bit of a rush to be out by 9am. I know COVID-19 is the suggested reason but that leaves 8 hours to turn the house round for next guests. Can’t quite believe this is necessary. Makes it slightly inconvenient. Don’t want to be too critical as we all had a great time. Thanks. Reviewed by Nicholas4.7★Sep 2021 "Really spacious house." Very well equipped with a high level of comfort. The dining table was especially wide which enabled perfect home dining. The Black Bull Inn, 5 minutes drive away, provides reasonably priced high quality food. A pool table in the games room was perhaps the main source of entertainment. The house had been cleaned to a very high standard. Absolutely loved staying there.
