This self catering cottage felt like a home away from home - a very welcome surprise as some self catering cottages are very sparse and not as homely but Bibra was absolutely lovely and very well priced. Countryside location was as expected.

The cottage was in an idyllic setting providing you like the peace and quiet - we loved it. The setting is in a lovely spot with beautiful scenery round about. Thanks for your recommendation.

It was a small and cosy cottage-flat. The bed was particularly comfortable. It was peaceful. There was room to do some yoga and meditation in the lounge.

The cottage was spotlessly clean and, although very compact, also very comfortable - very much home from home. Little touches, eg memory foam mattress and a bottle of wine, added to the welcome.Thank you for a lovely stay.

Very near to Hadrian's wall, good for walking. Very quiet location, away from it all.

Setting was wonderful. Bibra was very well equipped, well laid out and clean and tidy. Fantastic mattress, felt well rested. The complementary wine was a lovely touch. It was literally a case of walk in, unpack, ready to roll. A great base for sightseeing. A proper home from home, thank you.

It was close to lots of interesting attractions, whilst remaining secluded enough to give us a peaceful escape. Overall, it was a perfect weekend break.

A very well presented small cottage in an ideal location for Hadrian's Wall.

We loved the 5 nights at Bibra and would definitely return in the near future. It had everything we needed for our stay.

Lovely cottage and ideally situated for excellent walking. We liked the close proximity to Hadrian's Wall and local tourist attractions. The locals were very friendly and helpful, in particular the landlady at the 'Samson Inn' which was ideally situated close to the cottage.

The cottage was spotlessly clean and is compact enought for 2 people. The kitchen has everything you need and the bed is comfy. The only issue I had was the power from the shower is really low to the point of an almost dribble and it was really cold in the cottage and took a long time to heat up. Other than those minor niggles it is a great little cottage and good spot for getting out and about
