    “Perfect location and ideal accommodation”

    Liz and Adrian live on site but were not intrusive and incredibly helpful. They gave you a warm welcome on arrival and the apartment was very clean and comfortable - the complimentary tea and coffe was an absolute bonus after a long drive. The flowers and flapjacks polished it off very nicely.
    Perfect locaton for local walks, Hadrian's Wall, Lake District - you name it! And the beds were so comfortable, especially after a days hill-walking.
    The sitting room had a great view over the garden, which was beautifully maintained.
    The instructions on how to get there were spot on, which was very helpful as there was no mobile signal at the site but the wi-fi was far better than home!!
    I'm looking forward to next year - we'll be back again!
