  • "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

  • "We enjoyed our stay in this attractive and comfortable holiday home, a converted farm steading in rural Northumberland."

    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.

  • "The setting was so rural and peaceful."

    The television and games room were enjoyed greatly by the children. I was a little anxious going on holiday during the Corona virus pandemic, but everything was cleaned and managed well.

  • "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.

  • "The Steadings was a fully equipped, comfortable home-from-home."

    There were 5 of us and there was more than plenty room for us all. The outside area is lovely too, and the views just beautiful. Wonderful walks right on the doorstep. I'm sure we will return. Thank you!
