Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

The cottage was all we could have hoped for clean and tidy and in a very quiet location yet central for many of the tourist locations in the area
