We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the Coach was like home from home. Loved the Velvetiser and Bread Machine, we tried the bread mix and our loaf came out amazing and so privileged to be the first guests to try Henriettas eggs! Graham, Trysha and Sue were helpful and 5 star friendly, welcoming. Lovely hosts.

Alison & Paul – Solihull

What a find! Beautiful place in a fabulous setting - can't wait to return. Graham was very welcoming and informative about the cottages and area. Farne Islands were a highlight - seeing nesting birds at our feet was such a treat - Puffins were as beautiful as ever. Wonderful bird life - Paul has seen 83 species whilst on this weeks' break - with over 50 during his walks from the cottage. Barn Owl hunting along the valley was exciting.

Peter, Del & Ted

Thank you Trysha and Graham for your excellent hospitality. The little things - knowing our names on arrival; the card on the table; the fresh bread waiting for us; the flowers and chocolates; the helpful service (finding out about Cragside opening times) all made our time here very special. We will recommend you wholeheartedly and would love to return again.
