plenty of space, everything you could need. It felt like you were moving into someone else’s home for a week. The kitchen was well equipped, games for the children and plenty of books. It was great for all 12 of us to be able to sit around one table for meals.

Great place to stay with a family. Lovely house, very well furnished, very well provided. The kids had a great time, lots of things for them to do and places for them to go. We will go again.

The property had everything we needed, plus extras. A lovely welcome pack and a good supply of luxury toiletries. The location was quiet with nice walks from the door, but also had the convenience of being near main roads with easy routes to shops and popular visitor locations such as Beamish. (We found the child locks on the cupboards frustrating, but appreciate some families may need them).

Myself and 10 others stayed in this Cottage and all thought it was Perfect . If you are after a quiet get away, this is perfect. Nice walks nearby, and 2 local pubs in the same street. Local shop bit further, but only a mile or so. Cottage had everything you could need and more, from everything in the Beautiful Kitchen, to the games and room and BBQ in the Big garden. We will definatley stay here again.

The owners went that extra bit further in welcoming us to their holiday home, sending a friendly informative letter before departure listing all the things to be found at the house to save us packing extra, and a table full of welcoming gifts e.g. fruit basket, fresh bread, eggs from own chickens!

We enjoyed the space, the facilities were 1st class and everything was on hand that we could possibly require. The welcome pack was amazing, particularly the fruit basket and eggs.

The property was extremely clean, beautifully presented and very well equipped. The welcome pack was amazing, fresh fruit, cakes, milk, eggs, bread, jams, biscuits, chocolates and each child received a selection box. Communication with the owner was excellent.

The owners were very approachable and always very helpful. The children all loved the games room and there were lots of toys and games for all age groups. The kitchen was very well equipped. I would be very happy to book Arrow cottage again. It has everything you need for a family holiday and extremely helpful owners.

A beautiful cottage that we all agreed we would love to live in. Nothing was too much trouble - there were Easter eggs on arrival for each of the kids as we were there over Easter weekend. There was an impressive selection of fruit and veg, and eggs from the owner's hens. I have never seen so many games, DVDs, CDs and books. There would have been plenty to do without ever leaving the cottage.

We have been on quite a few long weekend holidays away but this accommodation is the best so far.The personal touches from the owner i.e. Welcome pack, correspondence and telephone conversations have been second to none, so we thank you for that.
