Lovely cottage in a quiet, peaceful location.. Sadly did not see the dark skies owing to bad weather but still have a lovely stay.
Mrs Smith, August 2020
July 2020
The cottage was very comfortable and it was great to have outdoor space too.. The birds in the back garden were a treat to watch and included siskin, a woodpecker, chaffinch and nuthatch plus more. This was a quiet base to have a stay cation. We took food and drinks and the kitchen was well equipped to prepare these. It was nice to have a welcome pack too. Thank you. The area around is stunning and we had some interesting visits during the week. An excellent place to stay.

Out in the sticks very quiet .. nice walks with the dog A very nice welcome pack for us and the dog . Love this place Nice to see different species of birds out the kitchen window plus the stoat. Would recommend this lovely place . .

Wonderful cottage.. Lovely welcome pack much appreciated and location glorious - very remote just what we needed. We will return to this cottage when the current crisis ends
Mrs Robson, March 2020

Everything about this cottage was fabulous, the welcome pack was amazing and an unexpected surprise.. Seeing the birds so close to the kitchen window was fascinating and even when cooking/washing up had been finished we would carry on spectating and this also made washing up a delight not a chore and everyone was willing to wash and dry.
Mrs Cottell, February 2020

A hidden little gem, quiet and relaxing, everything you could want and more if your looking to get away from it all.. lovely welcome pack on arrival and dogs well catered for.

We had a great time.. The owners had thought of everything and the cottage was lovely.
Mrs Ward
March 2019
The cottage was a real home from home, clean and comfortable with all the necessary facilitates and more.. The owners were extremely considerate and had left essentials over and above the norm'. I particularly like the fact that our holiday was not 'interrupted' by anyone (owners/cleaners etc). We were trusted to arrive and lock up on departure. It was a truly relaxing/chilled/quiet week's holiday, which is exactly what we needed.
Mrs Walters
December 2018
The cottage was perfect and the welcome was wonderful - Christmas lights and a tree, a lit fire, wine and chocolates and delicious scones and bread were all unexpected treats and made us feel instantly at home.. The owners have thought of everything to make this a truly special home from home and we loved being there. They even provided treats, towels, poo bags and a bed for the dog. We wouldn’t change a thing!
Mrs Mcleod

Lovely place.. The hob was not working properly as some rings would not adjust from hot. The cottage was very cold on arrival even though the log burner was lit, but by the following day it was very cosy. Apart from that , huge care had been taken to detail- most impressive. The birds were a delight and I would be more than happy to return

Brilliant cottage.. ..real get away from it all stay... Excellent welcome pack.

February 2018
This is just a beautiful house with stunning views and absolute home from home comfort.. A lovely welcome of scones, eggs, bread, jam, wine and milk. Tea and coffee also left to use along with dog beds, blankets and biscuits. The beautifully enclosed garden is just great for the dogs enabling you to enjoy inside while they enjoy outside. A lovely large bath is there to be enjoyed along with the lovely log burner to settle in front of afterwards. We got snowed in and enjoyed the wonderful care and hospitality of the local farmers who cared enough to pop round and share their freezer contents. It is wonderfully out of the way but Falstone is only 3 miles one way and Bellingham 5 miles the other - so easily popped to for supplies - even on foot in the snow. We will defilintely be going to this cottage again - in fact I think I could llive there. The owners very kindly towed us out on our day of departure after we had the biggest snowfall since 2010 while we were there. A lovely relaxing break!
Mrs Millington
February 2018
What a wonderful holiday we had at Old Hall Cottage.. It all started with the welcoming fire blazing when we arrived. The next lovely surprise was the fresh scones, jam, bread and wine that greeted us in the kitchen and the doggy welcome pack etc in the back hall. The cottage is set in the most beautiful location, lots of walks, wildlife (a variety of birds and a stoat visited us every day in the garden). Within easy travelling distance of the Scottish border. We were treated to some fabulous sunsets at Kielder Water and there are some great waterfall walks nearby too. Old Hall Cottage is definitely a place we will visit again.
Mr Byrne
February 2018
It was the small things that impressed us the most about Old Hall Cottage.. The fresh bread, scones, eggs, butter and wine waiting for us, dog biscuits, dog towels and a bed waiting for our dog. The shed was well stocked with fuel for the fire and it was obvious that lots of time and effort is spent with the upkeep and cleanliness of the cottage. A lovely, peaceful week which we needed to re-charge our batteries. Thank you.

If guests book this cottage with a view to visiting Kielder Observatory they must book with the Observatory well in advance of their visit..

Beautifully refurbished cottage Lovely rural setting

Gorgeous, totally private, cottage in a secluded but not too remote location. Everything that you need is provided. A lot of love and care has clearly been put into it by Colin and Helen, the owners. Great array of wild life there, virtually every type of garden bird you could name visit the feeders at the back, including a pair of great spotted woodpeckers and a stoat who pops up now and then at the back. A barn owl in the late evening plus several bats. A pay phone is provided, which is a valuable bonus when there's no cell coverage (as invariably there isn't wherever we go!). We were lucky with the weather so only used the living room burner on our last two nights. It is by far the best and easiest to light and use burner that we've ever had, and we've had loads. I'd love to come back when it's cold so that we can put both on! The best "welcome pack" we've ever had. You don't need to do any shopping before you arrive. Finally, re dog. A lot of cottages state "enclosed garden" and when you arrive it's not exactly enclosed for a dog. This one really is secure. We could relax and let our dog wander around the garden, which makes a huge difference. 100% recommended.
Mr Whitton

A secluded, cosy, comfy and clean cottage. It was everything we were looking for in our holiday!
Mrs Anderson

Wonderfully quiet, picturesque location. Very homely cottage. Perfect place for a relaxing get away.
Mrs Smith

The wood burner in the living room made the cottage so cosy and lovely to return to after a day out walking.
Mr Pearce

Very comfortable and great location.
Mr Gardener
March 2016
Old Hall Cottage is a wonderful cottage, in a lovely location as a place to 'retreat' to in itself or as a base for touring around the Kielder/ Northumberland area. Such a peaceful spot. Really well equipped, you're made to feel special and it is very much a home away from home. Will definitely go back and would recommend to others.
Mrs Foster
February 2016
Old Hall Cottage is a fantastic property in a beautiful location. Fantastic wood burner and comfy beds. Particularly good for bird watchers and star gazers. Definitely would recommend this property if you want some relaxation.

Just returned from a short stay at this beautiful cottage with my girlfriends. Ideally situated for those of us who love peace and quiet. Thanks for the welcome pack including wine, bread, scones and jam - all delicious and much appreciated. The property is very well furnished and the beds are so comfortable a good night's sleep was had by all. Highlights are the wonderful wood burning stove in the living room, the variety of birds that visit the feeding stations in the back garden (be prepared to top the feeders up I've never known such greedy birds!) and the amazing display of stars in the dark skies The cottage provides a telescope! Although the weather was very windy and we had snow we managed a walk across the kielder reservoir dam before returning to hot baths and a good afternoon playing cards and listening to music in the cosy living g room A fantastic cottage in wonderful location I hope to return soon
Mrs Normanton
December 2015
The cottage was warm when we arrived and looked very welcoming. The cottage is very well-equipped and comfortable and even though the torrential rain wasn't ideal holiday weather, we felt we were in a home away from home and were cosy and relaxed indoors. We especially loved watching the birds outside the kitchen window - a great distraction from the tedium of washing up. Overall we were very pleased with the presentation and facilities of the cottage, and would certainly stay there again.
Mr Macmillan
November 2015
Another great stay in this fantastic cottage. Everything catered for and the cottage was lovely and warm when we turned up, the log burner was already up and running. Thanks again to the very friendly owners.
Mrs McCormick

Fabulous cottage on a very quiet lane and very well equipped. It was very rural, so peaceful and quiet which is exactly what we wanted.

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful cottage with our dog in June, and found it to be clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need (and more) supplied. On arrival we were delighted to find a lovely goody pack for us and Willow, which was a great treat after a long drive. Very helpful too was the welcome pack booklet, full of clear detail on the where and how of appliances etc in the cottage. The cottage itself is in a wonderfully rural location and kept/ furnished to a high standard; very quiet and relaxing, which is just what we want from a holiday home. All you can hear at night are the sheep. All in all, a proper home from home with very comfortable furniture - perfect for relaxing in the evening and for a great night's sleep. The kitchen is well stocked with crockery, cutlery and all the utensils needed to cope with the sort of cooking we do on holiday. The barbecue was put to use on nice evenings too. As the cottage is within the area of the dark sky reserve, the provision of a telescope is a nice touch. If that is what attracts you to the area I recommend not visiting at midsummer, as it barely seemed to get dark most nights. Our mistake - nothing to do with the property. I can't really find anything negative to say about Old Hall Cottage! One of the highlights of our holiday was the wildlife that visited the garden, where bird feeders are hung. Top-ups are available to buy and we did this on a few occasions as the pleasure gained from watching the birds made it well worth it. My husband now knows a few more species than he did, and was chuffed to have spotted the very brief visit from a woodpecker. Several times a mouse came to have a nibble on the peanuts. On the last day we even saw a stoat darting about on the garden wall. If you want the bright lights, this cottage is not for you. If you want a rural retreat in beautiful unspoiled countryside, go for it. We certainly hope to return to view the dark sky at some time in the future.

Great cottage in lovely quiet location. Great for walking, with Kielder Forest a short drive away. The garden was great for dogs and well kept.
Mrs Harvey

The cottage was superb! Everything we wanted and more! Delightfully unexpected. The weather helped.
Mrs Floyd
March 2015
Loved the cottage - it was cosy, quiet and just perfect for a great chill out holiday. There was plenty of walking on doorstep and yet near enough for visiting the coast and castles - Kielder Forest is a must for walkers and cyclist - cannot wait to go back.
Mr Mccafferty
January 2015
A beautiful, well-appointed cottage in a stunning countryside setting. Far enough away to 'get away from it all' but equipped with everything you'll need. Telescope provided for star gazing, which is a must in a dark sky park. Homely touches and generous welcome pack, comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen. An abundance of garden birds and other wildlife on the doorstep of the beauty of Northumberland. Would love to stay again!
Mrs Embury
December 2014
The cottage was warm and comfortable in a quiet, relaxing and beautiful area. From the kitchen window watching numerous types of birds feeding added to the enjoyment of our stay.
Ms Crosby
November 2014
Having stayed in many holiday cottages over the years, I can confidently say this is one of the best. Well equipped, clean and comfortable. It provided us with a fantastic base to discover the local area, and was also dog friendly! I would definitely recommend this property.
Mr Snowden
October 2014
An absolutely beautiful cottage in a stunning location. The bird feeders outside the kitchen window which was fully stocked provided us with great entertainment when washing up. The telescope provided for the dark sky's with full instructions and what to look for was excellent.

Excellent stay at this wonderful cottage. From the log burners to the fantastic garden for night photography of the stars. The sofas comfy for falling into after a day of site seeing. Peaceful and quiet internet excellent. Everything that was needed was there. Would stay again. Two of us stayed, but could comfortably accommadate 5. Although we took no pets there was no sign or smell that would make you think any animals has stayed there. If you do book and stay here...... Take some extra bird feed.... The feeders in the garden are amazing to stand and watch the birds feeding..... But they are very greedy and needed topping up daily, either that or they immediately had us pegged as a soft touch.
Mrs Bell

Intend to go again - 5 star, excellent.
Mr Hunter

We loved Old Hall Cottage. Beds extremely comfortable. Location excellent for adventure. They had also supplied fluffy towels, and other little touches that made this one of the best cottages we had stayed in. We would definitely return and recommend.
Mrs Hartog
August 2014
The warm, generous welcome when we arrived: lights on and treats in the kitchen. Telescope provided in case we had a starry night. Everything we needed was there. The surroundings are delightful and we enjoyed watching the birds on the feeders outside the kitchen window. We had a very good meal at the Pheasant Inn - a short drive away. We're thinking of booking again for next year.
Mr Tait

Mr Tuke

A wonderful, warm and cosy cottage in beautiful countryside. The owners have paid great attention to the small details, providing all the essentials that you need but don't particularly want to buy for a short holiday. The welcome pack for people and dogs was great.
Dr Algar

Delightful welcome packs for humans and dogs and other thoughtful touches. Garden full of spring colour and free rhubarb. Excellent instructions for everything. Bedrooms presented to good hotel standard with attractive layout of towels and toiletries.
Mrs Neale
March 2014
The time and trouble that had been taken to make us feel welcome at the cottage was very much appreciated - it gave us a wonderful start to a lovely holiday. Even our dog was catered for - that in itself was amazing! This was the best holiday cottage we have stayed in.
Mr Macmillan
March 2014
This is the first time that we have stopped in a cottage and I will be amazed if anywhere can top this one. Nice and spacious with local amenities only a short drive away. There are lots of walks and places to visit. Everyone we met in the areas around the cottage and villages were very friendly. We are already looking to book again.
February 2014
Wonderful welcome - the lights were on, the fire lit, as we arrived late at night with small children this made it magical! The cottage was spotlessly clean and had lots and lots of little extras such as soap, washing up liquid and shampoo which made it very special.

We totally loved this cottage. It is beautiful and the log burner makes it feel so 'snuggly'. The welcome pack for both the family and the dogs is a lovely touch. Everything you need to make your stay a fantastic experience. Would recommend this cottage for sure.
Mrs Connor
December 2013
A lovely effort by the owners to make us feel welcome, the cottage was warm and well lit when we arrived. We will definitely be returning, cannot wait. We booked the cottage as we had plans for Kielder Winter Wonderland, it was about a 15 minute drive away; ideal location. The property is large, but still cosy. Really enjoyed it, as did our children, we cannot wait to return. I imagine it would be lovely in the summer to.
Dr Crerar

The property was very thoughtfully prepared to make it as welcoming as possible. It was a very peaceful location, which was what we wanted. The cottage was very comfortably furnished, with wood and coal for fire. We loved the cottage, and would highly recommend it.
