  • "We really hit lucky."

    It was so convenient to the town and was well equipped. The front was a sun trap and the bench was well used. You do need a small car as parking around the back was difficult but the owners had left helpful instructions about reversing out. A lovely stay for early season(March)

  • "Peth Head Cottage is absolutely beautiful and was in a perfect location for our walking holiday in the Cheviots."

    The cottage is tastefully decorated. I particularly appreciated the extremely comfortable beds and the fabulous bedding. The log fire was also wonderful, and very efficient, as the weather was quite cold when we were there and we just needed to be cosy in the evenings after a long day walking. As well the High Street is only a stone’s throw away, with lots of useful small shops we were able to get everything we needed locally. There is only one thing that I would have loved to have in the kitchen! A colander! I would recommend this cottage to anyone – this is one of the best cottages I have ever rented.

  • "Cottage felt like a home rather than a holiday let."

    Immaculately prepared and scones and jam most welcome! Everything you could need for a comfortable stay — fire easy to light, mattresses really comfortable,duvets luxurious and kitchen short of nothing. Wooler a delightful place and everyone friendly. Enjoyed meals at Milan and Tankerville arms and walks from the cottage door into the hills . Look forward to returning.

  • "Peaceful, well equipped, cosy cottage."

    Shops, pubs etc all within a short walk. Loads of walking on the doorstep here and the beaches aren’t too far away either.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in this lovely comfortable and clean cottage which was very convienient for the centre of Wooler for shopping etc."

    Kitchen well equiped and now has a good tin opener. Rather than endure the hassle of accessing and parking in the allocated space next to the cottage we tended to park on the nearby roads when we didnt need to carry too much from the car. Whilst the rooms were warmly heated, we found the unheated stairs and landing corridor rather cool unless internal doors were left open.

  • "I was very unsure of where the cottage was in the village before booking."

    Was very disappointed to find it was in a quite neglected row of houses with the cottage next door being renovated and the back area was like a building site. The lace curtains in the window made the cottage look very run down. They also needed a wash. I took them down and put them back up at the end of the stay. Access to the property was impossible. I caught and broke my wing mirror on the corner of the house whilst trying to leave Path Head as the access is so tight The kitchen was very clean but had a strange smell which did not go even after using air freshener

  • "Great Cottage as per review."

    Only downside was difficulty parking outside Cottage. This was explained before booking. Other downside was having to put the recycling bin out which was full at the junction to the main road. I am Asthmatic which didn't help and my wife needs to see Chiropractic every month, Apart from the moan and the weather a lovely well equipped cottage.

  • "The main problem encountered was the parking."

    Whilst the information stated parking at the rear of the property this proved to be quite restrictive in use. Access is through a narrow gap between two buildings and a low wall. I found the best method to gain the rear of the property was to reverse both in and out onto the main road. This made leaving and returing each day a chore.

  • "The cottage was in a very good position in the small town of Wooler near the pubs and shops."

    It was well equipped, except the washer would not work the hot fill was not connected.The tin opener needs replacing. We enjoyed our stay ,bus service to Berwick and Alnwick from the town every two hours. Anchor pub just across the road was well worth a visit we went to the Quiz night and there were a lot of locals in who made us welcome . The local butchers, bread shops were good and the Friday Night fish and chip van down the hill near the fire station was excellent.
