Fantastic. Lovely cottage, very well stocked and furnished. Very friendly and helpful owner. The cottage is spacious and in bad weather you can sit and gaze into the garden and listen to the birds. (more)Helena Poldervaart
We were intrigued to stay in a house made of straw bales and to see how recycling/ reuse can be put into practice and good effect.- we were not disappointed! We found the photo albums showing the building of the house really interesting. (more)C Sharkey

Wooler bed & breakfast accommodation, Northumberland
Memorable parts? Glorious sunshine for five days in Northumberland and walking in the Cheviot Hills, only seeing one other person in 5 hours. The huge variety and quantity of easily observable wildlife on the walks and the totally empty sandy beaches. Very welcoming owners, well appointed accommodation. Tips? You can expect 1950s volume of traffic on the roads once you get north of Newcastle.... such a refreshing experience. It adds so much to the relaxation benefits of the short... (more)Helene Kerr

Lake District holiday cottages, England
Memorable parts? Watching the birds from our caravan. Amazing to see woodpeckers so close up! Also, fantastic walks from our door - no need to travel anywhere except by foot. This is right in the midst of things. A walk through Manesty Woods at dusk was quite magical. Tips? Get plenty of supplies in as there are no shops locally - Keswick is the closest for most things, while the Flock In Tea Rooms at Rosthwaite has a little shop (that's currently closed on Wednesdays). Their Herdwick... (more)Patricia Grey
