It was so homely to come back to after our days out and sit by the open fire. The location is very peaceful. We were able to cycle with the children on the very quiet roads straight from the door. It is also well located for exploring North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. We especially enjoyed going to the Bluebell Inn for great food and real ale, just a short walk over the fields behind the cottage.

We were a party of 6 adults and 2 children and had so much room! We could all be together playing board games, or all be apart doing different activities (or napping!). The cottage is so quiet and the views from all the rooms are beautiful. The large kitchen is well equipped and the tassimo machine went down particularly well. The bedrooms are all gorgeous and my nieces loved playing with the rocking horse in their room. I stayed in the French room and the bed was so comfy I didn't want to get up in the morning. The upstairs bathroom is spacious and the shower is hot and powerful. My sister in law had a bath and said it was amazing. There's also an extra shower and loo downstairs so no fighting for the bathroom in the morning. It was a bit cold / wet to sit outside but there was a nice view over the fields and my niece got to see some very new-born lambs. There were so many nice touches, from the fresh milk in the fridge, the board games, book and DVD library and even a wii with games! Plenty to do if you get rained in and a great way to connect as a family! I can highly recommend a stay at Stonyfield, our experience was fabulous. We did venture out, if you stay here I can recommend a trip to Housesteads Roman Fort and Hadrians Wall and also Kielder Water. Both require a 30-40 min drive but are great for some fresh air and exercise. We also drove up to the border with Scotland, 15-20 min drive, just because we could, really!
