    About this property

    Set in the grounds of a Grade I listed building with access to large gardens, tennis court and trout lake! . Situated in the grounds of Bitchfield Tower, a 15th-century pele tower, amongst picturesque countryside, these tasteful detached cottages (refs MVW, MVX and MWQ) provide peaceful surroundings for the ideal holiday base. The Carriage House (ref MWQ) is Grade I listed, and all three properties have access to 6-acre grounds, tennis court and trout lake. Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens offer an interesting day out, or plan a day up the Northumbrian Heritage Coast stopping off at the ducal town of Alnwick with its famous castle and enchanting water gardens. Nearby Ponteland has some bespoke shops and cafes and a good selection of pubs and restaurants. The vibrant city life in Newcastle can be reached easily, and Hexham and Morpeth are among some visitors’ favourite places to visit. A trip to the border counties steeped in history should not be missed. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    "Very disappointing. The owners seemed not to care. As requested we phoned the owners in the week before our arrival to say that although we were booked from the friday we would not in fact arrive until the saturday. They said that they would be away on saturday at a wedding in Scotland but would make sure that "someone" would be on site to welcome us, show us around, and deal with any issues. Nobody was there. We saw the owners once just before we left at the end of our stay. The hot water ran out after 24 hours. We discovered that the hot-water heater had been turned off. The kitchen was minimally equipped. For example there was no frying pan, and barely sufficient crockery for six. There was a bbq (as advertised) but it lacked a gas tank. The clothes drier seemed not to work and there was no operators manual. Several light sockets lacked a bulb, the tv connection was faulty (I fixed it), the heating was difficult to figure out and control, There was no explanation of how the power remotely controlled gates worked. The resident dogs regularly used the back lawn as a toilet (good job there were no children in our party). The comments in the guest book mentioned many of these same issues, which suggests that the owners should have been aware of these deficiencies but didn't do anything about them.The rent was increased for that week, it being the UK half-term, which made the deficiencies harder to accept.It's a pity. The location is excellent, and the rural ambiance is delightful."

    "Our visit was based on a family wedding held in the area. Tower Cottage was close by to other family rentals. The cottage was comfortably furnished and plenty of room for family with three bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining, living room and washer and dryer laundry room. Backyard had a picnic table and grill for outdoor eating. Very peaceful, quiet setting."
