"Three generations of our family [aged 1-64] went to Byrness for New Year and had a fantastic time. It has a lovely, slightly faded elegence. The kitchen is the best I have ever had in self-catering - a huge gas & electric range, 2 sinks, 2 fridges and a full sized freezer, lots of cupboard place and, wonder of wonders, really sharp knives. Of course the kitchen needs to be good as you will do a lot of cooking ..........there is nowhere close enough to walk to for a meal! There's a wonderful kitchen table that seats eight easily and in the dining room a huge table that fits 12-14 [and there's enough cutlery and crockery for that number. The sitting room is large with three big old sofas and a huge TV/DVD/Freenet. There are stereos in both rooms. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms. Because of water pressure issues there is a knack to how to use the showers and you can't use all three at the same time [or if the washing machine is running]. Also is you are having a shower it takes ages for the cisterns to refill for a flush. The same is true for the heating system as it seemed at first that the house was always too hot. However, with the help of Kate the owner we got it sorted. The other thing was that, because of the thickness of the walls the wi-fi was very unreliable. These are all problems of old buildings, heating systems and water pressure - there isn't anything actually wrong with any of the things [but it is wise to know about it in advance]There's lots of parking, a nice garden with beautiful views across Redesdale, easy access to great scenery and you are within 100 metres of the Pennine Way. Also you can walk up the hillside behind the house into lovely woodland.The owners live in the adjoining property, They are friendly and helpful but never intrusive.This property isn't for everyone. If you want up to the minute luxury with jacuzzi, steam room, streamed Netflix this isn't for you. However if you want a place with bags of space a character and a great kitchen this is the place for you"

"We went with an infant (5 months old) and assumed this would be a nice place to relax. It could have been our fault but this is not the place for people coming to relax if you have a child as the lodges are very close together, the other lodges are booked out to stag and hen do parties and the majority of the people going here are up drinking until the early hours. We went when it was very hot, the lodge doesn't have air conditioning and because it has lots of windows it gets very hot, if we opened the windows the noise was even worse. There isn't really anything on site and the nearest supermarket is in Hexham which is 35 minutes drive. Because of the noise we found it too much, we booked from Friday to Friday but left on the Tuesday morning. There are some positives, if you come here and your goal is to have a few drinks at night yourself and are happy with that its a good place, the lodge itself is nicely decorated and the tv is very big, there are some wooded areas around which are nice and Northumberland is very nice with some great places to visit.Maybe it was our fault for night researching properly but if you have kids and are looking at an early night because of that my advice would be not to book this"

"We have spent many holidays in Rothbury, using it as a base to stock up on provisions and choosing to travel by car to explore the vast county of Northumbria.Healey Farm Cottage was an ideal location, being just on the outskirts of Rothbury, high on a hill with uninterrupted views of breathtaking countryside.It is set away from the farm itself and so is not overlooked.Janice is a welcoming host. She left us milk, tea, coffee and cake so that we were able to chill before starting our unpacking. She visited to welcome us and came to say goodbye at the end of our stay.The cottage itself exceeded our expectation. It was spotlessly clean, furnished to a high standard with new appliances and all the equipment we required.During our week we visited various parts of Hadrians Wall, a number of castles including Dunstanburgh, and Warkworth Castle and Hermitage, Brinkburn Priory down the road from the cottage, and Howick Hall. We also visited the harbour at Amble, and the beach at Durridge Bay.We ate out too and there are lots of lovely coffee shops, restaurants and pubs around. We particularly liked the Three Wheat Heads at Thopton and the tea room at Howick Hall."

"After really looking forward to this break, we were both extremely disappointed with our choice. Thimble Cottage is in need of a TOTAL DEEP CLEAN.On arrival and unpacking, we were quite taken back by the lack of cleaning which you would expect between the requested departure time of 10.0 am and being able to enter the property any time after 3.0 pm (5 hours). The cups still had coffee stains from the previous occupiers, the windows were dirty, the bathroom hasn't been cleaned for some time, cob webs at skirting level, which suggests no mopping of the floor certainly not at the periphery, glass shelves - mirror lights all very dusty, Bedroom continued the theme with cob webs etc. Reading the guest book, it appeared previous occupiers were more taken back by the various wild fowl roaming the estate e.g. peacocks - guinea fowl, which were at the patio window constantly waiting to be fed, which deflected the comments relating to the actual property. However the location is ideal for travelling round and there are some lovely places to visit along the coastline, which we love."

"The central-heating thermostat is... guesswork, at best. No instructions, and it seems to keep on resetting itself every few hours. Not a massive inconvenience or hassle, but... not a smooth hassle-free experience either. For me personally, none of the sofas were overly comfortable - again, not a massive problem, but a constant niggle. And finally, if you (Sykes and/or the property owner) are going to make the renter get £100 in cash for the 'housekeeping bond', at least make the effort to collect it. Or just sack off the requirement completely. Either way. But making *such* a big deal about it (it's on every confirmation, and on the description page on Sykes) and then not bothering about it again just makes it feel like "Well, that was pointless and annoying"."
