Exceptional historical farm accommodation with welcoming hosts. Beautifully restored farm in rural location just around the corner from Cragside. Lovely extra large bed in huge bedroom. Great fresh breakfast. Fantastic hosts, Lou and Shaun who really could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Just sorry we weren't able to stay longer!B from Co.Durham Armstrong Wing
Thank you for making our stay so warm and comfortable. The cottage is lovely and the furnishings very comfortable. We visited Housesteads on Hadrian's Wall, lovely Holy Island, St Aidan's beach , Bamburgh Castle , a wonderful trip to Durham, and fabulous walking in Simonside and Cragside with Freddie our chocolate labrador. A superb week in the North East!
We have had the most wonderful week staying here! East Cottage has been a complete pleasure to stay in - it is beautifully set out - a real home from home, and using the wood burner and range has been a complete treat! Cragend Farm is set in the most beautiful of settings - we have thoroughly enjoyed exploring Cragside Estate - the dogs have never had so much exercise. Bamburgh Beach, Holy Island and Dunstanburgh Castle, have also been amazing places to visit. A brilliant stay!S & R, Devon
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week, long beach walks, Keilder Water and visits to various castles. The seafood here is excellent. The house is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. It has been a super week.Many thanks.G & D, Herefordshire
