    Great cottage - sad we had to leave early owing to our dog becoming ill, but hope to return in the Spring.

    We had a lovely time in Nenthead, a place with an interesting history but which also is a real here and now community, surrounded by rugged hills. Its remote and 450m high. The Miners Arms is cosy. Loads of walks straight from the cottage. Ashgill Force near Garrigil is impressive; you can walk behind it. A red squirrel ambled past the back of the cottage every day! We hired bikes (from Dave at the bike shop) and cycled up one of the back roads to Blagill - amazing views, empty roads and not as hard as I thought, being a half-a-mile-to-the-shops sort of cyclist. trips out of the area take a lot of time but every(windy) road is breathtakingly beautiful. Alston is near, and a charming sort of place. Hexham, larger , is a drive over glorious moors and is old and beautiful. Its near to Hadrians Wall. The cottage was warm and well-equipped and roomy, and felt well-loved. We'll be back.

    We had a great time staying at Wayside, really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere the cottage has. We are looking at booking it next year. We love that area of Cumbria and stay in the village every year but that was the first time we had stayed in Wayside.

    Had a great time at the cottage. Well equipped and in a lovely setting. A very nice, friendly setting with loads of places to walk. Hadrian's Wall, Durham and Newcastle all within easy reach. Only thing to be wary of is availability of food within the village. The only pub can be a little hit or miss for meals so make sure that you have a back up in the fridge! There is a restaurant across the road which does serve really great food but make sure you book as it is run more of a hobby than a standard restaurant.

    Fantastic cottage, spacious double bedrooms and chefs kitchen. In the middle of many walks (the pub at Garrigill has closed down if you plan on getting in drink during a walk).
