    The cottage was warm, comfortable and generally well equipped and efforts had been made to ensure we felt at home. The shower was a little underpowered but can’t say that is a big deal. The location is exactly as described and we loved that it was so rural despite living in a rural location ourselves. We enjoyed long walks with our dog and lazy evenings in front of the fire. Local amenities are limited but we knew that and had no problems. The local pub was not serving Sunday lunch so we went to The Angel in Alston and had a great meal there. Everything was as described and we would definitely stay at the cottage again when seeking this type of away from it all break.

    We booked this cottage because we thought it was dog friendly, but it was dog tolerated. To many rules, the cottage itself is very nice and well stocked

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks for your comments about the cottage and feedback. Sorry to hear that you thought the cottage was only 'dog tolerated with too many rules'. The rules that we gave you in the information pack only follow the guidelines of the Agency. Full details can be seen on their FAQ's page under ‘What Does Pet Friendly mean’.
