Fantastic, amazing views and so peaceful.. Great garden and wildlife around the house, we had a really good week at New House and Hadrians Wall, forts, Kielder all and easy drive.
Owner is very friendly and helpful.
An amazing house set in stunning scenery my only grumble was the mattresses were lumpy and uncomfortable..

Had a great family time at this lovely cottage.. Plenty of space for 10 adults, 2 babies and 2 dogs. We particularly liked the large open plan area at the back of the cottage, great for cooking, dining and socialising together. Other rooms were available for those wanting quieter moments. The log/multi fuel fires were very welcome and had been lit for our arrival and once the house warmed up we were very comfortable during a very stormy week. The cottage is remote so take plenty of food/drink supplies, we did a supermarket order which arrived safely. Amazing views and potential for local walks.

Beautiful house in an even more beautiful setting with an amazing communal area and 5 good sized bedrooms, I'd love to revisit new house again in the future..
Mr Peterson, September 2019
Great house and location for a family holiday.. Loads of space, superb grounds and views. Grandchildren loved playing in garden and adults have a glass on the patio. Everything in the house that you need.
Would recommend and hope to stay again
Fabulous house in a beautiful setting.. Lots of space for 10 people and a very well stocked kitchen. Would definitely recommend.
We visited this property for a family/friends getaway to celebrate a 30th Birthday.. The location is stunning, with rolling hills and wildlife all around. The house is secluded, being ideal for those who like the outdoors. The facilities and inside of the house are stunning and the decor of the property is beautiful. I would highly recommend this property for large groups of people wanting a relaxing getaway.
New House was perfect for celebrating my birthday with family and friends.. Fantastic property, well presented with lots of character, it felt like home with photos and personal items not too fussy but better than being sterile and was very comfortable and relaxing. Kitchen was well equipped and included everything we needed. Bedrooms were clean and beds very comfortable.
Plenty of room for all my family and friends to be together or do their own thing and the views were spectacular. It may be a little off the beaten path but worth it; wether you go walking or running or just want a relaxing time New House was perfect.
It was an excellent base to use to visit local places of interest such as Hadrians Wall, Carlisle, Gretna Green and you soon get to recognise the surrounding area and villages. The local Bewcastle Church and Cross is worth a walk to clear your head after celebrations and is around 1 1/2 miles away.
A local traffic jam is a herd of sheep or cows coming towards you which is a novelty but different to my usual commute and the memory will make me smile.
My family and friends all enjoyed their visit over the week and confirmed what a good idea it was to do this. The house made the celebrations and Ross had thought of everything except a hair dryer, we couldn’t find one anywhere but anything else you thought of was there!
The heating isn’t like your CH st home and it took some getting used to but that’s part of the charm and the log burners were a great focal point and additional heat source.
First time we have used Sykes but will be doing it again.
Fabulous time highly recommend New House.
The cottage was fantastic, better than advertised.. The views were awesome and Ross kindly decorated with Xmas trees. The one disappointment was the difficulty in receiving the deposit back. After 10 days, I had to chase it up after initial emails and texts received no response.
Wow my family and my sisters family stayed in this beautiful house we have already booked it again for next year it is a lovely big house with amazing gardens and views it's got a lovely mix of modern and traditional throughout the house and feels more like a home than a holiday home can't wait to go again..
We had a fabulous time at this beautiful, family home.. The accommodation was superb, very spacious, comfortable, dog-friendly and well-equipped. The outside area is also first class with a variety of spaces, including well-presented gardens, lawned areas for the kids to play on and a patio for having a bbq, while taking in the breathtaking views. This is well-suited for a large family like ours, but would also be a great venue for a group of adults celebrating a special event or wanting to spend time together, just getting away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
The house is very well situated for exploring the Lake District, Scotland, Hadrian's Wall and a whole host of other attractions, but also full of cosy places to curl up with a book on a rainy day. I wish we had booked a fortnight as we ran out of time to do everything we had planned. We always go on holiday in the UK and this is the nicest place we have ever stayed. We definitely plan a return visit.
Amazing view, could not be bettered! Lovely big house with plenty of room for all. However could do with some TLC. Although some personal touches are welcome there were maybe too many photos and some of them not quite suitable for family viewing. Not totally friendly for children due to steps and different levels both in the house and also the garden but having said that it was still a lovely place to be in. So peaceful! There was a problem with the drains while we were there but it was delt with promptly and efficiently. Also we had some lovely weather witch was a bonus but there are plenty of board games for if it rains!
New House is a big fabulous house with amazing views in a very quiet area, the only sound you'll hear is the occasional shepherds quad bike and the constant bleating of sheep, and therein lies the problem if you have a dog who is not 100% obedient.. One side of the garden is completely unfenced with a drop to a sheep filled field. The sheep like to shelter under the drop and can't be seen by people, but can be smelt by dogs. We were never able to relax in the garden, even with the dog on a lead as the sheep were just too close for comfort. So do book this beautiful house if you want a really away from it all holiday, but not if you have a dog who shows even the slightest interest in sheep.
My girlfriend and I spent 2 weeks at New House and loved every minute of it.. Absolutely beautiful house in a fantastic location with fantastic views. Will be booking again!
Spacious welcoming house, great location north of Hadrian's Wall, beautiful countryside and wonderful weather
A fabulous property in a great location with stunning views.. Ideal for a large family / group gathering due to its open plan layout and split of formal / informal living spaces.
Amazing Extented cottage for family gatherings any time of the year.. Everything you need except food supplies. We choose New year 2016/17 for our gathering when we arrived the christmas decs were still up which was great and made feel very festive. The house was lovely and warm with the log fireplaces twof the rooms. The veiw is amazing as it is on a hillside you can see for miles. Lastly plenty of good walks and sites to visit.
Mrs Hoggeth, December 2016
New House had been tastefully extended several years ago and retained its feel and character.. The kitchen area was very spacious and comfortable - great for large families. There are superb views from the lounge over lovely countryside and it is a haven of peace and tranquillity.
The house has welcoming feel and my party really enjoyed staying there.
Mr Cressey, July 2016
The space for the family to spread out.. The garden for the kids to play and the location was hand to visit lots of places.
We love New House. This was our second visit and we have booked a return visit in the summer. The open plan living/family room is perfect for our family and both adults and children alike have had a great time. The house is very beautiful and a real home from home. The two open fires are fantastic and make it lovely and cosy.
