The Coach House
Sleeps 6

The Coach House

The Coach House welcomes groups to a Gold Award Winning detached Georgian house dating back to 1817 which boasts exposed beams, an open fire and a peaceful location beside the riverbank. Located near Bellingham, this remote luxury holiday cottage in Northumberland also offers large gardens with views over Kielder Water.

The spacious property houses two king-size double rooms and one twin room, as well as a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC and a ground floor shower room with shower, basin and WC.

The kitchen/breakfast room is modern and well-equipped and leads to a separate dining room with fantastic views. The thoughtfully-presented sitting room will draw families together with its comfortable lounges, open fire and TV with FreeSat, DVD, CD/radio and selection of books, games and DVDs.

Complementing the open fire is eco-friendly biomass heating and guests can also expect broadband wireless, free landline, laundry facilities, amenities for young children and off-road parking.

The Coach House is spacious, and so is the garden, making it an ideal space for the kids and dog to play or to enjoy a BBQ or a refreshment with friends. Visitors also have access to the all-weather tennis court and the star-gazing platform next door which provides a great view of the ‘Dark Skies’.




There was a variety of things to do on your doorstep. You were very close to Keilder but also close to Hadrians Wall and you had shared use of a new all-weather tennis court in the garden. There was fishing too on site if you wanted it. The owners were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. There was a lovely welcome note and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. The accommodation was very spacious and very comfortable. There was a comprehensive and up-to-date folder listing all there was to do in the area, places to visit, where to eat, where all the facilities were etc.

Very helpful and friendly owners. A wonderful place to stop the world and get off for a few days.

Mr Doyle

A warm welcome by the owners who left tea, coffee, milk and wine for our arrival. The locality of the property was fantastic and also the price was very competitive. The new tennis court was a big hit with all the family and the large garden is fully enclosed so ideal for young children and pets.

The lovely location of the cottage. The open fire and the AGA were really nice features. The owners were very nice and friendly and didn't interfere with our enjoyment. The tennis court is great, completely new and refurbished.

This was a really luxurious property and superb value for money too. We have already mentioned it to several of our friends. The tennis court is splendid and we thought the pool at the local hotel excellent too. Absolutely beautiful cottage - exceeded expectations.

Dr Stone

A friendly welcome from relaxed owners, always willing to help and accommodate us.

Mr Charteris

Lovely, friendly owners who cannot do enough for you - nothing is too much trouble. Fabulous gem of a property! Everything you could ever want from a holiday cottage and more. We will definitely be staying at The Coach House again.

Mrs Hudson

The garden is fantastic and being able to use the tennis court was a real bonus. If the weather had been better, we would have spent much more time out there.

Ms Fardoe

You could not have wished for a nicer place. The warm welcome (incl.the wine)the cosy atmosphere,everything was perfect. The surrounding country side, the local people and pubs. Information leaflets were available to read and a full glossary of all we needed to know was at hand. We were allowed to take our two well behaved dogs, even the rabbits that were merrily munching away at the owners vegatable patch were friendly. Despite the weather we had a brilliant time, the owner was away but came back as we were leaving, a very nice gentleman, we hope to go back in the not too distant future, back to Hadrian's Wall and Greysteads Coach House,lovely.

Ms Fardoe

The location, the tennis court, the house - Everything was excellent.

House was very good plenty of room for 6 people and dogs!
Keilder Water is stunning.
The Monroes were very friendly and helpful

Mrs Rutherford

The owners were almost on site but never interfered and were very helpful when we did contact them. The garden and tennis court were divine. As a family getting together for a silver wedding, it 'extended' the house and gave us lots of space to chat and unwind.The Aga in the kitchen gave us hours of cooking fun. A real treat for the cooks amongst us. We just felt so relaxed and with so much to do within a close radius, I couldn't have chosen more wisely, if I do say so myself.

Mrs Walker

The use of the tennis court, the range in the kitchen and the quiet peacefulness. The owners' personal tourism guide which was a genuine and true account of local activities and information.

Mr McWhirter

A lovely garden, ideal for dogs and children. A beautiful first class location.

Mr Delaney

I can think of nothing to say about the Coach House...that has not already been said many, many times. The location is quite and peaceful and the welcome from the owner was individual. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Mr Ricketts

Tennis courts great for children/adults. Spacious rooms, welcoming owners.

Dr McMillon

The property exceeded expectations and was better than described in the brochure.The exposed oak beams and general "olde worldiness" of the property gave a unique charm that we haven't experienced before. We would highly recommend this property for anyone considering a 'get away from it all holiday' in very comfortable surroundings.

The beautiful walled garden and tennis court. The space and comfort. The outstanding location. Wonderful walks straight from the house and the Roman Camp at Vindolanda is just one of the excellent nearby sites to drive to.

The house is beautiful and very well furnished and equipped, in a wonderful location. The tennis court in the garden was a real bonus. The owners were charming. They provided outstanding amounts of information about the area which was very helpful. A really lovely choice for a holiday rental.

Ms Arnold

The owners made us feel welcome. The cottage was superb, plenty of room, a log fire to die for. Can't say enough about the cottage and the fantastic garden. First time we spent Christmas away from home and the cottage made this the best ever. Can't wait to return to our magic cottage. 10/10, 5 star, without a doubt. Don't delay, book today.

Mr Thomas

This was possibly the best holiday cottage we have ever used. Absolutely perfect in every respect. The location is stunning. Ideal for anyone wanting a quiet, away-from-it-all, relaxing break. We will be going back!

The house was beautifully decorated and the walled garden was a real bonus with a toddler.

Everything! The Coach House offered the perfect setting in a fantastic location. Very relaxing and our every need catered for.

Mr Hemingway

With six adults in the property, there still feels plenty of space.

Ms Williams

Nice area - lots to do. Cottage was roomy enough for all of us and ample parking. Very helpful owners. Lovely locals - especially in the pub.

Mrs Whybrow

The house was fabulous, as was the welcome by the owners. The house was furnished to a standard far beyond my expectations of a holiday home and was far from the usual cheap/old items. The kitchen was really well equipped and had ample crockery. The lounge was really cosy with the wood burner and furnishings. I really can't recommend the house and owners enough - it's a great place to stay and we had a fantastic holiday there!

Mr Holton

Outstanding holiday property! We would return if the opportunity arose. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Location excellent in lovely, unspoilt countryside. Bellingham first class for shops, especially the butcher.

Lovely cosy cottage. The owners where very helpful and we had a great chill out weekend. We would recommend it.

Mrs Bruffell

Tennis court, wildlife, peace and quiet, beautiful scenery, king size bed, lots to do and see, walks, garden, house... all fabulous.

Mrs Johnson

The huge garden & tennis court were brilliant for playing games with the kids and the grandparents! Peaceful location and beautiful views and there is lots to do nearby. Nice to stay in a property that is old and characterful, but fitted with all mod cons.

Mrs Arrowsmith

The Coach House was lovely and well furnished. It had great character and tonnes of space. We played tennis every day, which was one of the main reasons for staying here and the court was in perfect condition.

Ms Bosworth

The Coach house is a lovely property and very comfortable for our stay. The whole family enjoyed the tennis courts and the walks around the area were great. We took advantage of Calvert Trust, which is only a short trip away, and the boys took part in many activities they would not normally try such as climbing wall,canoeing, zip wire and king swing. This really made our holiday.

Mr & Mrs Lister

Excellent location and external facilities, garden etc. Plenty of internal space. Interesting and suitable furnishing throughout. Welcoming hosts.

Mr Friend

We felt right at home from the moment we stepped in. The owners were on hand if needed, to advise and help, but totally non intrusive. The weather was not at its' best but the heating was more than adequate. The garden was great for the dogs and there are plenty of walks at Keilder Water. The local butchers and bakers at Bellingham were superb, well worth a try. We would love to return and would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of booking.

Mr Begley

Lovely property in a beautiful setting. The owners were very pleasent and the area was stunning. The decor was very homely, and the gardern and tennis court was great for the kids.

This property exceeded our expectations. The Coach House not only welcomes dogs, it is also luxurious. The garden is huge and totally secure.

Mrs Smith

The warm welcome by the owners. The immaculate attention to detail throughout the house and general thoughtfulness for what a holiday maker needs in a home-from-home. It was the most enjoyable stay we've ever had in a holiday cottage.

Mrs Wootton

The whole experience was stress free, from booking to actually taking the holiday. The Coach House was all that it said, and more. We really can't stress how beautiful the house and location, and how helpful and pleasant the owners were. The house was full of charming features, was olde world yet with modern facilities. No expense had been spared, from ultra modern shower room and Aga, to antique furniture and numerous paintings. The garden was a delight to behold, perfect for us to enjoy, yet totally enclosed to allow dogs and children to roam unattended. I could go on, but suffice to say that this cottage is perfect, warm, dry and welcoming.

Mr Foster

Very friendly owners who live next to the property. Views from the property are stunning. The furniture is not new, but classy - most of it is antique and in keeping with the house. The house was warm with the central heating on and has a lovely log burner in the lounge. The beds are spacious and comfortable. If we return to Northumberland in the future and there is no reason why not as it is a beautiful place, we will return here.

Mr Milano

A comfy, cosy house. Friendly, welcoming hosts. This was our second time here and we've already recommended it to several friends.

Mrs Smith

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, very welcoming and cosy. It really felt like home rather than the usual holiday let. The beds were particularly sumptuous.

Warm, welcoming and homely property, close to lots of activities.

Mr Smalley

A warm welcome; fantastic location and the tennis court was a real plus.

Mrs Doherty

The location of the house as it is so peaceful! The house has a period feel to it and is just charming. The owners are very helpful and the house has everything you need and more besides.

Mrs Bruffell

Excellent location & nice garden. Good walking areas for the dogs. Very comfortable beds. Friendly owners who had left tea, coffee and milk for our arrival plus a bottle of wine.

Mrs May

We had a fantastic week in lovely accommodation. Great to have use of the tennis court. Good local cycling as well as exciting activities with the Calvert Trust at Kielder Water.

Mrs Merrison

The house was amazing, very spacious with beautiful antique furniture and wonderful views of the hills from all the bedroom windows. Probably the best equipped kitchen ever, books, games and two large information folders. So much thought has gone into this house and the surroundings are perfect for walkers. We loved it.


It was a pleasure to return to The Coach House as it is a comfortable house to be in.

Ms Williams

The house itself, in terms of size, layout and equipment, as well as its situation, were perfect for us. The furnishings are beautiful and completely in keeping with the age of the property - but everything was still very comfortable, so we were able to relax and feel at home. The enclosed garden and utility room were a great advantage for keen walkers with a dog.

Ms Geary

The cottage was beautifully decorated and furnished. It was a very relaxing week. The cottage was very well equipped, everything had been thought of.

Mrs Walpole

Great enclosed garden for the dog to run around. Warm reception by the owners. Lovely log burning stove and AGA style cooker.

A home away from home, relaxing yet clean, tidy and smart. The owners were available if we had any questions. We had a lovely break, thoroughly enjoyed the walks and drives and it was such a pleasure having the dogs with us for a change. We really enjoyed every minute.

Mrs Strydom

This is the perfect property if you like to get away from it all. It's peaceful and remote with breathtaking views from every window. The beds are extremely comfortable and the garden is huge, our dogs loved playing chase around the tennis court.

Mr May

Very well equipped property in a great location. The property has a real charm and is very spacious. We had a lovely time and the owners were very helpful.

Mrs Razzell

The cottage was wonderful. Large, very comfortable, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. It was situated in a very convenient spot near to the very best walks, and lovely countryside. The owners were helpful, but not intrusive.

Mrs Battrick

We loved the position of the house as a good centre for visiting the surrounding area and further afield. The house is so comfortable and well furnished. We would definitely recommend the Coach House to anyone.

Mrs Pearce

The Coach House is just lovely, the scenery is breathtaking. The owners are very friendly, always willing to help. The big cooker made preparing our meals an adventure. Hope to go back someday.

Mrs Meinema

This was a perfect getaway. We had an excellent stay. Everything we could have wanted was catered for. The oven allowed us to cook wonderful meals in a cosy home away from home (I really love an aga!), and the wood burning stove kept us warm and comfortable curled up by the TV.

Mr Tsang

The Coach House was all that we had hoped for; a chance to relax and get away from it all. Ideal for walking in Kielder forest.

Mr Lewis

It was a Christmas break, and the property was excellent. We were delighted with our stay.

It was a lovely big house with space for all age groups. We liked the tennis court, even in Winter, and enjoyed the log fire. We were very comfortable.

Mrs Curtis

Our stay at The Coach House was fabulous. The owners were very accommodating and their attention to detail is superb. The furnishings and beds are extremely comfortable. The walled garden is amazing and perfect for small and big dogs, being totally secure. Great location for plenty of short and long walks at nearby Kielder Water, just up the road. Will definitely return.

Ms Cottis

The owners were very helpful and friendly, fabulous garden very safe for both children and dogs, we would recommend this beautiful property to anyone looking for peace in a beautiful place but within reach of walks, forests and lakes. You just cant go wrong.

Mrs Roberts

Beautiful property in an excellent location for exploring the wonderfully empty Northumberland. The property owners next door are charming and the property is very dog friendly. Great views from all the room and a very stunning and large walled garden.

Mr Dixon

A very comfortable House, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The garden is excellent for dogs and small children. The tennis court is in very good condition, and the owners of the Coach House were delightful, most kind and helpful. A lovely area for a holiday.

Mrs Pank

Excellent accommodation with friendly and helpful owners.

Dr Amar

The area is stunningly beautiful. The Coach House is just lovely and spacious with very generous and helpful owners who live on site.

The Coach House and all the furniture, equipment etc. were of the highest standard. The owner was welcoming and friendly but not intrusive. It was very easy to settle in and relax.
Perfectly placed for exploring in magnificent surroundings.

Mrs Gowers

Well equipped, spacious and very comfortable. The owners are very accommodating and helpful. Good parking space. A lovely country area. Highly recommended.

Miss Cook

A lovely property which was well looked after by the host. Felt so relaxed all the time there.

Mr Booth

The location was great, the house position and gardens are wonderful and the house is well decorated, furnished and stocked with crockery, cutlery and the like. No mobile phone signal is a actually a benefit, it means being genuinely free from work, but having WiFi is good, and essential for kids with iPads and the like. Also there is so much to do/see within 60mins drive. There was nothing we didn't like.

Mr Maltman

We loved the tranquillity of this place, with nothing but the sounds of bleating lambs from the neighbouring farms and birdsong in the woods to disturb the peace. The cottage itself had every creature comfort you could wish for.

Mrs Fox

The accommodation was first class and the owners were very attentive. Best holiday in years.

Mr Elliott

An excellent family property with loads of space and the garden/tennis court made the holiday.

Mr Shotton

This property was fantastic; a great location, extremely well appointed and exactly as described in the brochure. I would not change a thing.

Mr Schofield

A beautiful property in a lovely location. It was warm and well appointed, and the quality of the fixtures and fittings was excellent. Stargazing from the garden was amazing and we saw some shooting stars. We would certainly visit again.

Mrs Rainbow

This holiday cottage could not have been furnished to a higher standard. There was more than ample of everything you could possibly need. The owners were extremely helpful with directions and although they were on the same site they were not intrusive at all.

Mrs May

A very relaxing and comfortable place to stay. In an excellent location with beautiful and peaceful landscapes to enjoy from the property.

Mrs Wright

A beautiful house in a beautiful place.

Mrs Bullivant

We celebrated a late Christmas with my family and the cottage, particularly the kitchen, was beautiful and very well equipped. The garden was perfect for our Labradors as it was large and completely enclosed.

Mrs Lightfoot

The Coach House was absolutely excellent. I couldn't have asked for a better cottage.

Mr Smith

The cottage is beautifully presented and in a peaceful location. It has all the mod cons, but with traditional feel. The walled garden was a safe environment for our dogs.
Cottage was spotlessly clean and the owners were very helpful. We will return, it was bliss.

Mrs Lambert

The Coach House is a superior holiday cottage. It is very beautifully furnished and with every facility and comfort one could wish for.

Mr Giles-Morris

The Coach House was so well equipped and comfortable, and it was the loveliest house we have stayed in so far and I would definitely recommend it.

Mrs Carter

In a lovely position which was quiet and peaceful, and the very friendly owners were on hand if needed. The dogs were made as welcome as we were. It was so nice to have a well equipped utility room where we were able to store boots, dry clothes and then shut the door on it, allowing us to enjoy the house at its best.

Mrs Truscott

Delightful accommodation in wonderful surroundings

The accommodation is first rate, elegant and spacious with excellent facilities. The garden and tennis court are a great extra, dogs are made extremely welcome and the owners are so welcoming and helpful.
The surrounding area is beautiful, Kielder Water is 10 minutes away, this offers great outdoor activites at the wonderul lake and forest park.
This is a truly special place, set in one of the most beautiful part os the country - can not be recommended enough!!


Feeling at home in a holiday cottage

From the moment we opened the door to this beautiful home to the time we closed it, we felt as though we were at home. The owner of the cottage had ensured it was warm and welcoming and was friendly and non intrusive throughout our stay. My sons who live in Newcastle and Scotland are unable to visit us at our home in Sussex very often and do not spend time together due to work commitments, this lovely house opened its doors to us all and we spent many evenings round the log fire together. Unlike many holiday homes, where it is obvious the owner has filled the rooms with utilitarian furniture and fittings, this lovely coach house had things that 'fitted'it was charming and we fell in love with it. Especially the Queen bed.We took some lovely photos from the kitchen window and now |I want to go back.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

absolutely perfect in every way

The cottage was reasonably priced, was tastefully furnished very comfortable and a superb location for walking and kielder forest . As we played tennis it was an added bonus. The only thing i have to grumble about but im sure it will be tackled in the near future is the path down to the river and along needs clearing as it was quite overgrown. The owners were very helpful and friendly.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

An absolute pleasure!

We could not fault this cottage. Everything about it from the location to the facilities to the owners exceeded all our expectations. Without doubt we will book this cottage again.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

relaxing, comfortable and very well equipped coach house

A very comfortable well equipped holiday home. The only problem we had was the size of the radiators in the house - as the weather was cold outside the radiators didn't give out enough heat in this high celing, large rooms, coach house. The owners were very pleasant and made us feel very welcome.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

Wonderful week

We brought our australian friends here who thoroughly enjoyed their first ever stay in an english country cottage.
Lovely cottage and gardens.
And an aga to play with!!

Owners close by and so helpful.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

All we could have wished for and more

Fabulous garden; we made excellent use of the tennis court, the wildlife was a bonus (apart from the midges). Wonderful house -very comfortable, spacious and well provided. In a lovely, quiet part of England with lots to do in the area.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

Relaxing break in a beautiful setting

The service from Sykes was excellent staffare very pleasant. Mr and Mrs Monroe who own the cottage live in the house next to the coach house and were on hand if we had any queries. Very nice couple who left a welcome gift of Milk in the fridge and a lovely bottle of red wine.
The cottage was very comfortable and the furnishings enhanced the cottage feel. Well equipped with everything you could need. The Queen sized bed was heaven.
The cottage is set in large grounds with a lovely river walk just outside the gates to the cottage. It is also a short drive to Keilder Forrest with great walks. Not far to the Coquet Valley We found a lovely Butchers in Bellingham and are coming back to him for our Christmas meat as it was so nice.
Enjoyed the tennis court which was well used throughout our stay. Loved the log burning stove. Just a perfect cottage to enjoy a realaxing break. Would deffinately return.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

A country house holiday , no cottage this one.

We stayed at the Coach House to provide a base from which our children could run the Keilder Marathon, and then stayed on for the rest of the week. What a treat a real home from home, everything was comfortable ,clean and tasteful. Wonderfully equipped spacious and just wonderful. To be really picky the only thing that was not up to our home standards was the shower which was a bit small, but we will be back despite this as there is always the bath.!!


Fantastic family retreat

This cottage just oozed character. From the comfy lounge with log fire and bureau, the spacious formal dining room complete with suitably chunky furnishings, the scatter rugs and massive king size bed in the main room and the warm and inviting kitchen - this cottage wraps its arms around you from the start! The owners live next door - close enough to call on if you need anything (like local information) but not so close that you feel invaded. I will be back to this lovely part of the country and if this cottage is available I will certainly book it again.

A FlipKey verified reviewer

Exceeded already high expectations!

A fantastic, impressive house beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The secure walled garden was lovely for us and our dog to enjoy. Owners were very welcoming, offering help should it be required and respected our privacy too! A wonderful house in a wonderful part of the world.


Relaxing in style!

Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing and peaceful week at The Coach House. Left to our own devices, within easy drive of Holy Island on the coast, Bamburgh Castle, Kielder Forest and Bellingham. Property was great for large family, or like us, a couple with dogs and room for visiting overnight family members. Made to feel very welcome, and the owners were very helpful with a blown tyre due to a serious pothole in the area - the only downside to the entire week. The state of the roads in Northumberland leaves alot to be desired! However, managed to source local help via the owners and enjoyed an enforced day off with local walks and exploration. The property is very spacious and flexible enough to cater for all visitors and our four legged friends, all 3 of them! Heartfelt recommendation to stay here even in February!

Really excellent property and location

We had a lovely holiday here. The Coach House is spacious, tasteful, warm and well equipped. The owners are charming and helpful. Great base from which to explore Northumberland's wildest landscapes. Bellingham a great little village with sufficient amenities and only a short drive away. Would definitely stay again here without hesitation.

Charlie D

welcoming and homely with a luxurious touch

It was so beautiful to find ourselves staying sat this beautiful hour. Great beds, wonderful deep bath with lots of hot water. Just what we needed after the long walks. The river close by, convenient location; secluded but amenities a fews miles away. Greystead oozed good taste and comfortable living. A wonderful place to relax and watch the dark skies. Use of the large open garden was important for us amateur star gazers. All the amenities we could ask for and such friendly people. And having a jug of milk with tea and coffee on arrival was so thoughtful and a bottle of wine !! Thank you .We will be back !!!


Wonderful for star gazing

A beautiful property that is really well appointed with quality fixtures and fittings. The house is warm and very comfortable and the location is great for getting around the area especially Corbridge, Hadrians Wall and Kielder Forest. The walks through the forest are fantastic. The garden at the Coach house is wonderful for star gazing and we actually saw some shooting stars. The owners are delightful and are on hand if needed but do not impose themselves on you. If we visit this area of Northumberland again we would definitely go back to this property.

Gill R

Stunning Property

We had a fantastic week in this excellent property. Fabulous period features and furniture give the property a luxurious country feel. The house is well equipped and there was nothing that hadn't been thought of. Very clean and high quality fittings made the stay very comfortable.
The owners were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome and at home. A brilliant base to get away from the world and enjoy the Northumbrian countryside. A holiday we shall certainly remember.



Had an amazing week staying at this fabulous Coach House. Everything was thought of to make our stay perfect and to top it off the most gorgeous homemade lemon drizzle cake on arrival, well worth travelling up for!!
4 adults stayed and with the 2 bathrooms it worked so well, the furniture is to die for as well, real luxury! We certainly made good use of the kitchen and fabulous Aga!
The location is very central for everywhere really, we loved exploring the National Trust properties around Northumberland, we just didn't get enough time to fit it all in. Will definitely be back! We wanted to explore so much more but with every bend of the road bringing a new surprise and wow moment, it was a tall order!!
Thank you for letting us stay
Carol, Mervyn, Marc & Rebecca

Great access to Kielder Water and Forrest with all its activities.

Ms Muir

The large garden was fantastic - perfect for children to explore.

Ms Jarvis

The standard of the property was excellent we couldn't beleive it wasn't the main house when we arrived. The furniture, fixtures and fittings were to a very high standard. It was great not to be limited by wanting to take two dogs they were made very welcome and had use of a secure garden.

Mr Wilson

The location is the main reason why we wanted a break in Northumbria; however we did not expect the cottage to be so beautiful.

The location is perfect, with a stunning view of the countryside that made eating breakfast such a pleasurable moment - each and every day.

The cottage more than catered for our every need. The description on the website fails to do it justice!

The welcome message left by Ann made us feel totally at home from the moment we stepped foot through the door.

The hosts are a very nice couple who valued our privacy, but were on call if we needed assistance.

If we were to describe the Coach House in a word, then that word just has to be WOW!

This is one cottage we will definitely be returning too. Thank you Sykes Cottages; and especially a very big thank you to Ann & Bill for ensuring that our winter break was memorable.

Mr Wills

Lovely old house, good area for walking with some nice local pubs. Very friendly but discreet hosts. Another excellant Sykes property.

Mrs Kightley

We really enjoyed the holiday, the house was very inviting and we felt relaxed. This was our first time to Northumbria and we will certainly be back in the future!

Mr Hatton

A beautiful cottage situated in a remote idyllic location. Plenty of space for our party of six adults, and we were very impressed by the period features and lovely bedrooms. The house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Owners were unobtrusive but very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing break which was over too soon!

Miss Lindsay

The house was really well equipped and the bedrooms excellent. The owners were extremely pleasant and achieved the right balance of being available to help without intruding.

Mr Garton

This was a great property with charm and character.

Mrs Parkes

The cottage was spacious and very well equipped, the owners could not have been more friendly, and the location provided a very good base for exploring the area. Information leaflets about local attractions provided by the owner were excellent, and the notes about the house and locality were extremely comprehensive.

Mr Garrett

The property was a lovely haven after days out, we were impressed with the standard.

Mrs Brewster

The house was spacious and well-furnished with attractive period pieces. It was warm and comfortable. It was fun to cook on an Aga again as I had one for many years.

Mr Warren-Beresford

We had a relaxing peaceful break at amost stressful time. The little touches by the owners made us feel totally at home and we really didn't want to leave when our time was up. Will definately book up again.

Miss Stephenson

The Coach House offers superb accommodation, and the owners could not have been more pleasant and helpful. The location is one of sheer peace and beauty, whilst the neighbouring countryside has so much in the way of fascinating history. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Mr Leach

Location excellent for peace and quiet. The owners were friendly and provided a bottle of wine for our arrival. We have stayed in rented accommodation all over the country, the Coach House is one of the best we have stayed in.

Prof Jackson

The accommodation was fantastic and more than exceeded our expectations. The hosts were always on hand, but kept a very discreet distance. This was definitely the best holiday accommodation we have ever had . Will be recommending to all friends and family

Mr Vincent

The scenery is spectacular and the house is fairly central for touring the area. A beautiful spot! This is a lovely house to stay in and we were made to feel most welcome by the owners. The village of Bellingham is attractive and has enough shops to cater for most peoples needs.

Mrs Yates

We were delighted with the spaciousness of the house - plenty of room for the children to play whilst we relaxed! Quiet and peaceful with a gorgeous garden: a carefree holiday.

Ms Hanson

It was an absolute delight to stay at the property from the minute we arrived until our departure. It is an absolute gem and I will definitely be going back!
