The property is well situated for exploring the Hadrian's Wall and Kielder Water areas.. The owner was very helpful in providing his garage as a place to store our bikes. Very nice property with lovely wooden beams and decor, but with one or two minor niggles. The property is largely lovely, but the temperature inside is very inconsistent because of issues with doors. There is no kitchen door and the dining table is right by the open doorway, next to the front door. This means it is a cold and draughty place to eat (though it would be fine in summer). The lounge door also does not quite close as there seems to be an issue with the hinges, which makes it a bit hard to heat in the evening. By contrast the upstairs rapidly overheats and can easily be too warm to sleep unless you remember to turn the upstairs radiators off early enough. I would suggest that the owner fits a kitchen door and attends to the hinges on the lounge door; apart from the comfort of the guests I suspect this would result in a substantial saving in heating costs. There is a wood burning stove in the lounge which would probably make the lounge warm even with the door problem, but not being familiar with how to use one I did not attempt to. Anyway fixing the door would render it largely unnecessary.
