“Rural Hideaway”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Yethouse. Yethouse is very spacious with a large well equipped kitchen, large lounge with log burning fire which had wonderful views, 3 very large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and another lounge so there is more than enough space for everyone.
Our weather was lovely when we arrived, early evening sunshine which allowed us to take in the beautiful setting. My little dog was in his glory chasing rabbits around the garden - think the rabbits are used to they continually outwitted him! Barbara was very welcoming and showed us around the house (its huge!) and advised that she was readily available if we had any problems. Barbara is also an excellent baker and her lemon drizzle cake went down a treat with a cup of tea in front of the log fire.
The Grapes Hotel in town was excellent place to eat, it allows dogs in the bar area and even has doggy treats for them.
The weather changed and it became rainy and snowy - but this meant more time around the log fire much to my delight...there were a bounty of board games available to play as well as loads of CD's and DVD's to keep all occupied.
A thoroughly relaxing and recharging time was had by all of us and I look forward to our next visit to Yethouse.
Barbara - I commend you on Yethouse, you have a beautifully property, spotless and very very well equipped to accommodate even the biggest of children, thank you for the cake (it was yummy. I will be recommending you to everyone!
Hope to return very soon

An amazing house with lots of space for 6 of us(3 couples)for a weekend stay, we all felt comfortable in our own space but also plenty of space to enjoy each others company too especially in front of the lovely fire. The house has a real home from home feel about it with a brilliant selection of books, music and dvds.We were made to feel very welcome even though we didn't arrive until 9pm. We took a walk to the village on the saturday where we were also made to feel welcome by everybody.
We would all love to go back back one day maybe in the summer next time though.

What a fab a house! We stayed for Christmas and loved every second. The house is fantastic, spacious and has everything you need for a perfect week away.
Great location for visiting Kielder Forrest and the observatory.
We will definitely be returning to Yethouse.
Thank you Barbara for the warm welcome and great Christmas drinks.
