Our properties have been handpicked based on several standout factors, such as stunning locations, amazing views, and beautiful, quirky buildings. We’ve called upon decades of experience to restore, modernise and furnish each property with integrity and sympathetic materials. Every property embraces an appreciation of the landscape, history and community that surrounds it.

Fabulous property

This is a very lovely property with everything needed for a comfortable holiday. It is beautifully furnished with all mod cons. The position looking out towards the castle ruins in exceptional. We had a fabulous holiday and have already rebooked.

Beautiful cottage in perfect location.

Wow! We have been to this area many times and love it for fantastic walking, eating and drinking places. This cottage was the best we have stayed in for it's beautiful setting, comfort and attention to details. We couldn't fault it and can't wait to return. What a treat!

Wonderful coastal retreat in the wilds of Northumberland

Second stay at this superb location. Blessed by the best weather Northumberland has experienced in a long time. Just love the sound of the waves breaking on the rocky shore and the numbers sightings of dolphins during the week. What more can you want...idyllic!

Ms Christensen

We have just returned from the most brilliant stay in Middlerigg with our 3 children aged 10, 8 & 8. The property is beautiful appointed and the recently refurbished decor has been completed to a very high standard. The house also benefits from the best view in the village! We loved our stay here so much, as did our children so we've already booked again for next year.

Fun for all the family

Just returned from an amazing family weekend at Oughtershaw Hall for my mums surprise 70th. The perfect venue for our party of 16. The property was very grand with plenty of room for our party of various ages to all feel comfortable and enjoy the house and the impressive and well maintained grounds.

The house was lovely and clean, extremely well equipped and the pool and the sauna were the icing on the cake.

Ben met us on arrival, he was very helpful and was only a phone call away if needed.

The welcome hamper, flowers and champagne were a lovely touch. A fabulous weekend was had by all, lots of great memories made and we hope to return again in the future.

Thanks for having us.
