Beautiful, well equipped and very clean

  • Review Submitted: 03-Feb-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2012
Had a lovely short break at Huckleberry Cottage. Arrived at The Black Horse Pub to pick the keys up and was welcomed by a freindly face. The cottage was well equipped with everything you can possible need for a comfortable stay. Log fire was very cosy at night and the property even has under floor heating. The beds were very large and comfortable and the linen was of a very high standard which is a must for me. Bathroom was very clean but could of done with some nice big bath sheets a towels were abit small. My daughter enjoyed exploring the fields around the cottage and we all felt very safe and secure duing our stay. Felt like you were in the middle of no-where but lots of local ammenities including The Stables bar, Beamish Hall, Italian restaraunt and shops just a short drive from the cotage. Would highly recommend this rental to friends and family and will hoping to stay again ourselves.

Amazing - Country Cottage with every modern convei

  • Review Submitted: 03-Feb-2013
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2012
The pictures for this cottage do not do it justice, my partner and I arrived at the Cottage and were very amazed. The cottage is set within a minutes's walk of the delightful Black Horse Pub, where you can always pop to for amazing locally sourced food if you can't face cooking yourself. However with the beautiful Range cooker, hot pot and fondue set you really can't resisit catering for yourself! The cottage's classic stone floor is cosily heated with underfloor heating and their is a roaring fire in the living room. The beautifl sun room conservatory is ideal for eating your dinner whilst taking is peaceful views of the surrounding hills. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with really comfortable beds and the master bedroom even has a plasma TV on the wall. Their is wifi throughout the cottage and there are games and a large TV in the country classic master living room. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be returning next year, I'm even booking a 3 night stay for my parents as a Xmas gift! I cannot speak highly enough about Huckleberry cottage, my partner and I loved it! Only 15 minutes (£15 taxi!) to Newcastle & 25 to Tynemouth too so a perfect little location!

The property is delightful- beautiful decor and well thought out layout. Everything you need for a wonderful holiday, full of thoughtful finishing touches. Location is superb, very quiet, and ideal for touring the Durham area and Northumberland. Beamish Museum is only a mile away and is a fabulous day out. Would highly recommend.
