This property has so much going for it. The views from of the back garden and from the hot tub area over the valley are amazing, if you like a nice sunset then this is the place.
The outside has a seperate hot tub area, this large, we had 6 in very comfortably and the water was clearly well cared for. There is an outside TV which is useful, unless someone is watching the TV in the lounge, if they are then you have to watch what they are watching. Further seperate area in the garden which has seating and a fire pit, lots of logs supplied with the property for those chilli british evenings. The grass area is a decent size as well, if you have a dog and/ or children this is this a really great addition. All this is set inside a secure garden (so little one's can't go wandering into the road!)
The inside was well cared for. 2 double bedrooms and a king size room upstairs (which has a waterbed). plenty of wardrobe space to put clothes and shoes. the additional 'z-beds' (used to get from 6 people upto 9) are confortable to sleep in. Set of fresh towels are left on each bed as well. Lounge area has a log burner in it for those colder winter nights - we put it on once (in August) and it was so hot.
Kitchen area is downstairs, which i personally like as it keeps the food smells seperate from the rest of the house. The only downside to this and my only negative comment on this stay was it appears to be a bit of a flytrap as they head downstairs but don't appear to get back out! we bought some fly paper to hang from the ceiling which worked perfectly. it would be useful if this was provided as standard. This shouldn't detract from the overall place by any means.
Location wise, this is a really good spot --> you are in the middle of the countryside with literally no noise around at all and you are also just a 20min drive from Gateshead or around 45mins from the beachfront at Newcastle.
Really nice stay which we all enjoyed very much and we would use this property again. The owners were very responsive to questions both before and during our stay.
