Guestbook comments from the manager

We were the first to rent this lovely house. A fabulous place for walking and eating outside on the sunny terrace. The Bastle has been like a "castle' to us. Thanks for taking care of the details, the products in the kitchen, books, Bastle mugs etc. Kind greetings from 3 happy Belgians,

P & T Antwerp, Belgium.



What a fantastic holiday cottage, we have been to many and this is firmly at the top of the best list.

Loved the history, the Bastle, the Beltingham Yews and Hadrian's Wall. We had a snowy walk from the Visitor's Centre at Once brewed - along the Wall and back.

The stars are amazing and so was Allen Banks, the river and the Gorge.

Wow, wow wow! What a wonderful find, a beautifully restored house in an idyllic location. With ancient yews and a delightful little church.

As for the house - it is fabulous, very, very cosy and has been restored with great style and finesse. Lots of welcoming little touches, products in the bathroom, a laid up fire and more provisions than we have ever known.

We will definitely be back - Thanks so much to you both x

Lucy and family

Hidden gem

Stayed here for my partners 30th birthday and so glad we did!

What an excellent renovation with all the latest mod cons whilst still maintaining its period beauty. As the farmhouse is pet friendly we took along our dog who loved the many walks across Northumberland.

Will definitely be returning!
