Lovely, well-appointed cottage. We had a delightful week, and the snow was a wonderful extra bonus!

Lovely comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is lovely, bigger than the pictures suggest and really nicely furnished. There is a telescope but with street lights right by the cottage you would have to travel to use it. Sunday morning breakfast at The Black Cock was great. The cottage is miles from the nearest shop but Tesco will deliver so we ordered in advance for delivery when we arrived. The nearest petrol station is also miles away. Although it says there is no mobile signal EE works at the bottom corner of the garden but coverage in the area is very patchy. The area is very scenic but the weather was not kind to us although we knew that was a risk booking in November we cut our trip short when after 4 days of heavy rain & with local roads flooding it started to sleet.

Great property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely week here. Booked the cottage for the week following the Kielder half marathon. Great to be able to walk to the start. Local pub and tea room were great. Liked the fact there was no wifi, this was good.

The welcome basket was a really nice touch. The 2 bathrooms were also very handy to have. I'd recommend the property to others.

Perfect cottage in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Falstone! The cottage was very nice, well equipped and spotless. My husband and I slept like logs in the fabulous bed, wanted to stay longer! A great week, peaceful with wonderful scenery even if the weather was a bit iffy, but didn't stop us getting out and exploring the area, which is stunning.Thank you very much for a wonderful week. We would recommend this cottage without hesitation.

Our Stay at Falstone

  • 5 of 5

What can I add to all these good reviews…

Well, firstly having spent ten days, they are all correct. The cottage is beautiful and was clean and welcoming. It felt like home on opening the door. A perfect base for venturing the wonderful Kielder Water and countryside right on the door step.

The majority of home essentials are provided, but do look at the inventory to ensure you take your own necessities. Having decided to holiday at home rather than abroad, meant braving whatever the weather could throw our way, and it did. But the cottage provided a perfect retreat. The cloudy sky did prevent us using the telescope, but hey, that must mean another stay!

To conclude, it is conveniently centred to visit Scotland’s major cities to the north and the great Hadrian's Wall to the south. A plethora of walks, small villages and attractions to visit and a must is to visit Alnmouth village and beach.

We recommend this spacious well-kept cottage to anyone who is seeking a comfortable peaceful and quite holiday with the added advantage of privacy.

Thank you from

Gary & Debbee

Beautiful cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous little cottage. Nice and remote with fantastic views of the dark kielder skies. No mobile signal and no WiFi means it's a perfect retreat. No distance at all from Kielder water and forest with plenty to do and see. Little gift basket waiting in the kitchen on arrival too! Highly recommended

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. The location and lack of wifi does mean a retreat from modern life and we're so glad you enjoyed the time you were there. We'd love to welcome you back anytime.
