Comfy cottage in a wonderful part of England. Idea to visit in and around County Durham and Northumbria. Scones excellent and a great breakfast in the Farm Shop. Thanks

Reviewed by Alison, 8th July 2018

The cottage was clean and welcoming and first impressions were very good.The kitchen is well equipped with a small dishwasher, large fridge freezer and microwave. It was plenty big enough for the two of us and our small dog. The tv was a decent size and there was a DVD player which we didnt use. The welcoming scones, jam and butter were a lovely toRead moreuch and delicious. Our dog loved the exercise area. The only downside was the uncomfortable bed and sofa. They were too soft for us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay at Harvest Cottage. The cottage is tastefully decorated, cosy and never felt cold. It was amazingly well equipped beyond what we expected. To find it had working Wi-fi was a pleasant bonus. The surrounding area is peaceful. For a short get away its perfect.

The cottage was fantastic. Cut our break short as we were moving home but will return. We had a lovely weekend thank you.
