Obviously the main draw to the area is Hadrian's wall, but scenery in general is stunning. The cottage, its location, its condition and its privacy are a delight and we couldn't recommend it more. The walk through the woods and along the boardwalk is sensational. The wildlife on the farm is amazing (how many times in your life have you shooed several peacocks away from your barbecue?) and David himself could not have been more welcoming. Keepers Cottage is five star. Don't miss it!
Stayed at Keepers Cottage in April 2017. The owners are friendly, location is great for Hadrian’s Wall. Accommodation was clean and well presented. It was lambing season whilst we were there. Owners happy to allow our two sons to get involved. We keep talking about going back.
Lovely cottage in a nice area! Great for walking Hadrian's Wall. Lovely cake flowers and wine on arrival much appreciated. Living area is a little small for 4 people, kitchen well equipped. Bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds and en suite bathrooms. No wifi working during our stay but owners were away! Otherwise a great stay
Ho I have just stayed in Keepers cottage and although we had a great holiday I think this cottage is best for walkers as the road is terrible to get to cottage so when visiting sites it is bad to travel on,also I don't think cottage big enough for 4 especially the kitchen,but lovely surroundings.
We had a very enjoyable week staying at the cottage. The directions sent by the owners were excellent (and needed), and we were very warmly welcomed by Jane. We loved the cake, wine and flowers left for us. We went for a walk to Greenlee Lough almost straight away, which was beautiful and peaceful. Spent most of the week exploring Hadrian's Wall - Vindolanda is particularly fascinating, though we also enjoyed Birdoswald, Chester's, and Housesteads, and the walk from Steel Rigg along past Crag Lough including Sycamore Gap (strenuous but worth it).
The cottage is warm, well decorated and had everything we needed (including access to a washing machine). Wifi is limited to the living room but that was probably good for us! Very much enjoyed our stay and would love to return one day.
