Mr David A,

We had a really great holiday in the area. The property was fantastic and we have truly never stayed in a better holiday rental in the U.K. The hosts truly went that extra step to make us feel welcome, the weather on the way up had been awful and the heating had been put on so the propertywas lovely and warm on arrival. Kitchen well equipped and comfortable bed. Some lovely extras had been left for us, milk,crisps, flowers and home made carrot cake. We did not use them but there were videos, CDs and games there. If we are in the area again (quite likely) this would most definitely be our first choice of property to stay at. Thank You

Mrs Christine T,

A very well presented property, well situated for Hadrians Wall and surrounding countryside. Beautifully clean and well equiped. We thoroughly enjoyed our staying visiting Vindalando, Housesteads, Chester Fort and Corbridge. Will be coming back.

Mrs Yvette J,

A beautifully clean, well equipped, comfortable property. Eileen and Robert were very warm and friendly hosts. Eileen had left lots of lovely and thoughtful treats which were very much enjoyed and appreciated. We would certainly recommend the property/your company to friends and family in the future.

Mrs Rosemary E,
