'This is a really comfortable, warm and well-equipped apartment located in a peaceful hamlet. Not too far from Greenhaugh (and its excellent pub) and within easy reach of Kielder, the apartment is well suited to people who enjoy getting out and about. The hosts are incredibly friendly and welcoming, without being at all intrusive. Having bread, milk, eggs, jam and a bottle of wine on arrival means that you can start to relax straight away.'
