    We were attracted to The Fauld because it has a hot tub, we were able to bring our dog, and because it is miles away from towns and cities. The hot tub was wonderful after a day exploring Cumbria and Northumbria (including the Kielder Forest and various parts of Hadrian's Wall), our dog was happy and safe, and we had a couple of good opportunities for star gazing while in the hot tub. Being on a working farm was not a problem for us and we enjoyed seeing the farm animals as well as the wildlife. However we felt that the owners were less interested in the cottage than when they first opened it and we didn't feel any sense of welcome or assistance in settling in. The information provided about the area was minimal (thankfully we got some good recommendations from staff at visitor centres in the area), there were no fresh items in the fridge to help us get started, the decor is more basic than illustrated, the towels were pitiful (bring some of your own especially for the hot tub) and there were several appliances that just didn't work and we suspected they hadn't for some time (dishwasher, electric fireplace, lights, etc.) We have stayed at a few cottages before where we have been welcomed by the owner, some welcome items were provided, and everything had been checked to see that it was functioning. But, we would still recommend the Fauld as it was good value for money, just bring a few extra things with you.

    A lovely cottage in a remote location, perfect for that peaceful getaway. The enclosed rear garden was great for the dog and the hot tub was excellent. It is a working farm so expect some noise from vehicles etc. We found the bed uncomfortable and feel the mattress needs changing, other than that we had a lovely 4 night break and would recommend The Fauld to others.

    Secluded setting with high levels of privacy, exactly as it appears in the pictures & highly recommended for getting away from everyone - the only traffic is the occasional farm vehicle. 4G signal on '3' was good, but almost no signal on my partner's 'EE' phone - so be aware that, depending on your phone, you may be completely out of contact with the outside world whilst at The Fauld. The property was clean and well presented, and suitable for dogs due to its enclosed garden. There are good opportunities for walking locally. For eating out we would recommend The Duke of Cumberland pub in Castle Carrock, and the cafe at Lanercost Priory, both of which are very dog-friendly.

    Great little cottage out in the sticks , peaceful and very relaxing venue . Hadrian's wall is a stone throw away and Scotland is just a short drive . The hot tub was a great bonus to come back to after a long day to just relax and enjoy the view of the lambs on the farm . This was our first visit but won't be our last .

    We loved our holiday at The Fauld, however it was very secluded and depending on where you wanted to go it could take anything between 30-40minutes car drive. It is worth mentioning that it’s best if you bring the essentials with you, bread, milk and other food items. Bottled water is a must as the The Fauld’s water source comes from a local spring which isn’t filtered or purified. The fault is modern and comfortable and has a real homely feel. The hot tub is an added bonus and adds to the relaxation of being in the middle of nowhere on a working farm with nature. We didn’t get much of a mobile phone signal or internet signal, so if you prefer to be glued to your mobile phone The Fauld isn’t for you. We had a little difficulty find The Fauld but a quick call or two to Jane quickly rectified that. We would definitely come back, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay but towards the end we missed civilisation.

    We really enjoyed this after a stressful year. The location was stunning and absolutely perfect and private! The cottage was gorgeous with everything that could be needed and the icing was the hot tub which was enjoyed au naturel lots of times! It was beautifully situated just outside the back door and easy to enjoy any hour of the day or night. The location is great for Hadrian's Wall which was a nostalgic return after 15 years and very special for me after completing an MA in Classical Studies. We also incursioned into the Lake District and Scotland. Back to the cottage there is everything you could want (perhaps an extra tea towel or two would be useful) and the decor was lovely and tasteful. I recommend taking extra towels for the hot tub. We shall, all being well definitely be returning. It's a gorgeous little bolthole. Ideal for two who want to get away into stunning countryside.
