  • "The Steadings was perfect for our family break."

    The views from the kitchen are beautiful and we made the most of the lovely forest walks which are close-by - good for walking the dog. Kids and grownups loved the games room! The house is gorgeous and has lots of space for a large group of family or friends. We would love to return.

    A quiet location with lovely outdoor space and easy travelling to everywhere we wanted to visit. The welcome brownies were delicious. The owners were friendly, notified us of an issue (beyond their control) and dealt with appropriately, thank you. A great time was had with extended family and is easy to recommend. Thank you.

    (There were 9 of us, 6 adults and 4 children aged between 6yrs and 7 months) We all had a great time, with the freedom to have our own space when we needed it. I will recommend it highly to friends and family. Many thanks.

  • "The Steadings was ideal for us, four adults and two children."

    We all loved the games room, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The location was good, we were within an hour of many exciting places, Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle, Kilder forest and various sites of Hadrians wall. there were also sandy beaches within range, although the weather didn’t encourage swimming during our time there

  • "The photographs do not do this property justice, it is absolutely enormous and simply stunning in its entirety."

    As a family of 5, we had so much space to ourselves when needed with lots of areas to get together for that all important quality time. The games room was an instant winner. The views are stunning, it’s easy to locate, and the tower ruins are a stones throw from the front door. There’s a National Heritage site 10 minutes away which is also beautiful and a little village down the road. I would highly recommend this property for large groups. The owners were lovely and sociable (as was their little dog) and the brownies and cows milk were an unexpected treat upon arrival. Thank you so much, I expect we will be visiting again

    Private and peaceful surrounded by lovely countryside views. Lots of walks from the doorstep and plenty to do within a short drive. Cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped.

  • "If I could award the Steadings 6 stars I would."

    It is such a lovely house; the location is great and the views just gorgeous. We were a party of three families and all agreed it was the best holiday house we have stayed in. There is masses of space and the two master bedrooms in particular are beautiful. The house is warm, comfortable and has everything you need. The games room was a massive bonus and enjoyed by us all. We all appreciated the welcome milk and brownies from Lindsay too! We walked into Rothbury but if you want to drive there is plenty of parking with local shops that can supply what you need (the butcher is lovely!). Lots to do in the surrounding area and fab walks from the front door. All in all a wonderful place to stay and we didn't want to leave!

    Hi Leigh It was such a pleasure having you and your family to stay, thank you for your wonderful feedback. We very much hope to see you again. Lindsay Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved our stay at The Steadings, booked for 6, however only 3 of us went."

    We had so much space, we went for New Year for a week as we arrived the Christmas lights outside looked so pretty on entering it felt so warm and cosy as the Christmas decorations were up with the fairy lights on the tree & around the beams, while unpacking Ann knocked to greet us & told us to knock at the farmhouse if we had any problems, however, we did not need to, Beds comfy, shower good, white goods worked well, new sofa's which were comfy & looked better than ones in photos, our bulldog Vinnie enjoyed the large enclosed garden, we used garage door of (games room) to enter garden which had fantastic views to front & side of property also from bedroom windows there was a beautiful garden with a pond & fountain although belongs to B&B. We used the games room every night our nephew had so much fun, however, it was cold at this time of year, we just wore our coats & boots. I would love to see games room renovated with heating & flooring to flow with comfort of this fab property. We enjoyed chocolate brownies and a bottle of milk in a glass bottle obviously produce from the farm, an added extra touch. Well done. Deborah from Gateshead

    The location is stunning with great views across the Coquet valley to fields and wooded hills on the other side. It is a couple of miles from the small market town of Rothbury with its quality, independent shops and opportunities for eating out. Friendly hosts were on hand for any problem but not needed. Surrounded by bird song and wild flowers in early June, the cottage was peaceful and relaxing.

  • "We booked this break relatively last minute and were impressed to receive an email from Ann straight away to say she was looking forward to welcoming us- this was a nice touch alongside the milk & brownies on arrival."

    The property has fabulous views down the valley to the Coquet river and has a lovely enclosed garden out front which was perfect for our dog. We loved the games room; given we visited the week before restrictions lifted allowing you inside a venue, we felt we had a venue all of our own to have a drink and play some pool! Rothbury is ten minutes away in the car and we enjoyed a lovely meal outdoors at La Mensa & drinks in the beer gardens at The Newcastle Arms and The Queens Head during our stay. The cottage is spacious and comfortable and was immaculately clean. We had a really enjoyable week at The Steadings.

  • "There can be few better places to spend a week before 12 weeks 'self isolation' than at 'The Steadings'."

    A fine cottage based on a working farm at the historic 'Tosson Tower' site. Outstanding views over the Coquet Valley, Rothbury and towards the Cheviot Hills. Very close to Tosson Tower is the Simonside Forestry Walking Area.[ Although the single track road to get to the visitor parking areas is a bit grim for low slung saloon cars] Nearby attractions include Cragside and Wallington Hall NT Properties. The scenery of the magnificent Northumberland Coastal Region including Bamburgh, Seahouses etc is about 40 to 60mins drive away via Alnwick with the Castle and its historic connections. The cottage itself is some two miles or so from Rothbury with its shops and other amenities. The cottage and its owners were very 'dog friendly' and walks starting from the cottage itself supported our canine friend. The secure garden was also a definite plus! The cottage itself was warm, well equipped and a delight to return to after a hectic outdoor day. If there is any slightly negative comment, which did not in anyway affect our party of two, is that with only one shower a full six person party would lead to some morning queuing. The cottage itself is extremely spacious with good wi-fi. Overall a delightful cottage holiday in a turbulent week.
