  • "Our daughter and family stayed in this lodge and therefore I can only repeat my comments for Apple Tree, which we stayed in."

    Lovely peaceful setting. Loads of space for the children to run around. The removal of the play area a few weeks before arrival was a disappointment for the grandchildren and one reason for booking. Noise was a bit of a surprise due to the hard floors and presumably lack of sound insulation in the floors. You could hear every footstep and snoring from above. The shower sounded like a monsoon. Other than that it was a really nice break, the lodges lovely and setting wonderful.

  • "A perfect lodge to stay in."

    Family of the lodge were very welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to make sure everything was ok. We have two young boys who found the outside space amazing and with all the wildlife who visited throughout the day they thought it was fantastic. Lodge was spotless, comfortable and very clean. Perfect for a peaceful, relaxing and stress free break.

    Thankyou so much Suzanne for your valuable feedback. It was an absolute pleasure having you and your family to stay in Lime Tree Lodge and hope you will return. Please wish your two boys well in there football. Who knows we may see them playing for Newcastle United one day! Kind Regards to you all. Dianne Property Owner

  • "The lodge was situated on a working farm in an ideal situation."

    The location, views, quietness and general ambiance could not be faulted. However, the lodge itself left a lot to be desired. Although we spoke on the phone ONCE with the owner, at no time did she bother to walk across the road to made sure all was well. Issues that need to be noted are - 1. the sofas are dirty and old fashioned. 2. the tv is very old and too far away from the sofas to view. We had to move the furniture each evening. 3. the fridge was TOTALLY inadequate for 6 people. 4. the kitchen waste bin was small and there were no additional bin liners provided. 5. the kitchen utensils were a hotchpotch of miscellaneous items. 6. although there was a washing machine, there was no facility to dry washing. 7. the wooden bench outside was old and in need of a make over. There was also no sun umbrella for our use or cushions provided. 8. the cleaning ladies arrived on Saturday morning at 09.30 promptly and clearly had no interest in whether we had enjoyed our holiday. They did not even acknowledge our presence. I wonder if Mrs. Proctor actually checks the properties when they have finished. 9. Having enjoyed 3 holidays with Sykes Holiday Cottages, we feel that this property lets your company down and someone needs to visit the properties to check on the accuracy of what is being offered, particularly having paid a premium price for the rental. 10. we noted in the property handbook that dogs were welcome if well behaved! We had booked pet free accommodation as our son has an allergy to dog hair. 11. We would be more than happy to discuss these issues on the telephone.

    Also , an extra rubbish bag would have helped. Putting the recycling out was a pain having to move the rubbish bin out to get to the recycling bin. If It had 2 opening doors on the shed it would be much easier. Beautiful setting and lovely people.

    On arrival what struck me first were the far reaching views across the Northumberland countryside and on entrance I knew I'd chosen a fab holiday property.

We do not hesitate to recommend this holiday property and can't wait to return.

    The lodge was really well set up for our party of 2 adults and 3 children. It is in a lovely rural setting and well located for the attractions of Northumberland. Dianne and Arthur are perfect hosts. The welcome pack, including home made bread, wine and Easter eggs was a lovely surprise. We stayed during lambing season and Arthur took time out of his hectic schedule to show the children how to feed the orphan lambs - it was the highlight of our trip.

  • "An excellent base for a family holiday in Northumberland."

    Easy reach of the coast and beaches, plus inland to National Trust and places like the beautiful Alnwick Gardens and castle. We had a warm welcome on arrival with a few tasty treats to get us going and help was available throughout our stay. Accommodation is ideal with three great sized bedrooms and three bathrooms. Safe and secure play area in sight of the property and of course there’s the farm to explore along the footpaths. We were lucky to be there as lambing was taking place. At nights you are surrounded by quiet - refreshing to hear only the sounds of nature and not of traffic. All in all most highly recommended.

  • "Mr & Mrs Proctor are very approachable, they had thought about the essentials on arrival, wine, cake and bread, very thoughtful."

    The lodges are extremely comfortable, very warm and very clean. All facilities are modern and efficient, hot water is plentiful and the heating can be set to just how you like it. The location is just about right, it is a very rural position but only 10mins away from shops, public house etc. The lodges are within a working farm environment so you will get the sounds and smells that go with farming, so don't be surprised when they are feeding the cattle at 7.30 in the morning, although we never heard anything once inside the lodge. Overall a great weeks holiday in a nice location with friendly hosts who try to think of everything.
