“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful place”
Reviewed November 6, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We are just coming to the end of our week in this beautiful house. Unlike the other reviewer that marked the place down for an overgrown garden, we found the garden to be very neat and tidy and nor did we hear a peep out of the neighbours. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone , especially those wanting a quiet and relaxing break in the Kielder area, it's very central for exploring. We loved the stream in the garden and the access to the cycle path beyond and then on to the lakeside walk. The house was very well equipped, with great attention to detail. I have read through the visitors book and every suggestion people have made in there has been taken into consideration.

Thank you ever so much for your lovely feedback, we are so pleased that you had a lovely holiday in Hartam House and that you enjoyed the stream along with the access to walks this allowed you. We would love it if you came back and visited us again soon!

Felt duped by the photos of the property. Looked from the photos as if it were on it's own when in fact it was on an estate with houses overlooking on 3 sides with noisy dogs and children. Not the peaceful retreat we had hoped for. The garden was neglected and overgrown including brambles and nettles and, again, not like the photos.
The interior was extremely clean and the open fire lovely. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Flowers and wine on arrival. We did not get to meet the owner so were unable to pass on disappointment with the state of the garden. Our first impression was of weeds growing everywhere and peeling paint on the gateposts which is a shame as it was at all neglected inside.

We stayed from Saturday 29th November until Tuesday 2nd December. Beautiful cottage. Extremely well equipped. All fixtures and fittings of the highest quality. It was spotlessly clean on arrival. The owners had left us an Anniversary card and Thornton's chocolates which was really nice and thoughtful. There were also bottles of wine for us to enjoy and a pint of fresh milk in the fridge along with sachets of tea/coffee and sugar. The log fire was simply lovely and an absolute delight to watch instead of the television. There were a lot of books, magazines and dvd's on hand too which again was a very nice touch. On our first night we heard a tawny owl hooting away. The night sky was clear and it was amazing how the stars looked big and so close. The owner had recently bought a telescope and had left it for guests to use. There was also a pair of binoculars - again all nice touches. Sheep grazed right next to the garden fence. The tea room in the village of Falstone - a couple of minutes walk away - do a lovely full breakfast (other meals on the menu too) - even dogs are allowed in which our dog, Stella, loved being fussed over by the other customers. The Kielder dam was a delightful walk away accessed from the rear of the garden. There was a car rally in full swing on the Sunday and one of the drivers had an accident so we witnessed the air ambulance landing to pick him up. We will certainly be back to this cottage in the near future and will recommend it to everyone we know!

“We couldn't book to come back again quick enough!”

On arrival the property was cleaned and furnished to a 5* standard everything was immaculate the oven was so clean it looked brand new! The owners had gone out of there way to make sure we had a warm welcome by leaving us gifts of fresh flowers, wine, coffee etc, soap and they even provide a pay as you go mobile phone for guests to top up and use as not all networks work out there, my T mobile was fine but my husbands O2 wouldn't work but this wasn't a problem. The property also has wi-fi. We have spent the last 13 years looking for a perfect holiday property to suit both my husband and i and also our 13 yr old dog. Hartam house ticked all the boxes and more! Unlike a lot of dog friendly property's you are not hit with rules and regulations of what your dog can and can't do making you feel like your dog isn't welcome. This is the perfect property for dog owners and walkers the property is surrounded by walks so our dog hardly needed to be on a lead. There is a walk starting from the end of the garden (approx half a mile long) which takes you directly to Kielder waters where you can walk 26 miles around the lake. Or you can spend the day relaxing in the property in front of the log fire! My review is mainly aimed at other dog owners but in the visitors book inside the property it is filled with nothing but amazing reviews a lot of them with children so it is a property that would also suit family's. We are so in love with the property and surroundings that the day we got home we booked to come back again and hope to have many more holidays here.
