The Coach House description

Holiday home
The Coach House, as its name suggests, was originally a working coach-house, built in the 19th Century. This detached property as been lovingly restored to offer substantial accommodation, yet retains much of its original charm through exposed beams and an open fire. With 3 bedrooms, it offers accommodation for up to 6 people. Although it is very close to the banks of the river, the front garden is enclosed by walls, so any children are safe in the event that they are unsupervised. This also offers excellent opportunities for outdoor dining and summer barbecues. The property also boasts its own all-weather tennis-court and a stocked fishing-lake which visitors can use with prior arrangement through the owner.

Unofficially recognised as the capital of the Tyne Valley, it is a picturesque collection of stone houses nestling on the banks of the North Tyne river. This part of Northumbria is steeped in history and a wide range of historical monuments and buildings pay testament to the region's past. Hadrian's Wall is a short drive and the origins of Bellingham itself can be traced back to Roman times. In addition, the local countryside remains unspoilt and much of it is cared for by the National Trust, offering ample opportunities for walking, riding and other outdoor pursuits. The countryside also acts as home to a variety of wildlife and there are a number of nature reserves from which you can observe animals in their natural habitat.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

Eco-friendly biomass heating with woodburner in sitting room. Electric AGA-style range cooker with electric hobs, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, TV with FreeSat, DVD, radio/CD player, free landline, selection of books, games and DVDs.

Mrs Truscott
July 2016
In a lovely position which was quiet and peaceful, and the very friendly owners were on hand if needed. The dogs were made as welcome as we were. It was so nice to have a well equipped utility room where we were able to store boots, dry clothes and then shut the door on it, allowing us to enjoy the house at its best.
Mr Giles-Morris
May 2016
The Coach House is a superior holiday cottage. It is very beautifully furnished and with every facility and comfort one could wish for.
Mrs Carter
June 2016
The Coach House was so well equipped and comfortable, and it was the loveliest house we have stayed in so far and I would definitely recommend it.
Mrs Lambert
March 2016
The cottage is beautifully presented and in a peaceful location. It has all the mod cons, but with traditional feel. The walled garden was a safe environment for our dogs. Cottage was spotlessly clean and the owners were very helpful. We will return, it was bliss.
Mrs Lightfoot
March 2016
We celebrated a late Christmas with my family and the cottage, particularly the kitchen, was beautiful and very well equipped. The garden was perfect for our Labradors as it was large and completely enclosed.
Mr Smith
March 2016
The Coach House was absolutely excellent. I couldn't have asked for a better cottage.
Mr Schofield
September 2015
This property was fantastic; a great location, extremely well appointed and exactly as described in the brochure. I would not change a thing.
Mrs Rainbow
September 2015
A beautiful property in a lovely location. It was warm and well appointed, and the quality of the fixtures and fittings was excellent. Stargazing from the garden was amazing and we saw some shooting stars. We would certainly visit again.
Mrs May
November 2015
This holiday cottage could not have been furnished to a higher standard. There was more than ample of everything you could possibly need. The owners were extremely helpful with directions and although they were on the same site they were not intrusive at all.
Mrs Bullivant
February 2016
A beautiful house in a beautiful place.
Mrs Wright
February 2016

Mr Shotton
August 2015
An excellent family property with loads of space and the garden/tennis court made the holiday.
Mrs Fox
June 2015
We loved the tranquillity of this place, with nothing but the sounds of bleating lambs from the neighbouring farms and birdsong in the woods to disturb the peace. The cottage itself had every creature comfort you could wish for.
Mrs Gowers
October 2014
The Coach House and all the furniture, equipment etc. were of the highest standard. The owner was welcoming and friendly but not intrusive. It was very easy to settle in and relax. Perfectly placed for exploring in magnificent surroundings.
Miss Cook

Well equipped, spacious and very comfortable. The owners are very accommodating and helpful. Good parking space. A lovely country area. Highly recommended.
Mr Booth

A lovely property which was well looked after by the host. Felt so relaxed all the time there.
Mr Maltman
May 2015
The location was great, the house position and gardens are wonderful and the house is well decorated, furnished and stocked with crockery, cutlery and the like. No mobile phone signal is a actually a benefit, it means being genuinely free from work, but having WiFi is good, and essential for kids with iPads and the like. Also there is so much to do/see within 60mins drive. There was nothing we didn't like.
Dr Amar
September 2014
Excellent accommodation with friendly and helpful owners.

Our stay at The Coach House was fabulous. The owners were very accommodating and their attention to detail is superb. The furnishings and beds are extremely comfortable. The walled garden is amazing and perfect for small and big dogs, being totally secure. Great location for plenty of short and long walks at nearby Kielder Water, just up the road. Will definitely return.
Mrs Roberts

The owners were very helpful and friendly, fabulous garden very safe for both children and dogs, we would recommend this beautiful property to anyone looking for peace in a beautiful place but within reach of walks, forests and lakes. You just cant go wrong.

A very comfortable House, with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The garden is excellent for dogs and small children. The tennis court is in very good condition, and the owners of the Coach House were delightful, most kind and helpful. A lovely area for a holiday.

The Coach House is just lovely, the scenery is breathtaking. The owners are very friendly, always willing to help. The big cooker made preparing our meals an adventure. Hope to go back someday.
Mr Tsang
November 2013
This was a perfect getaway. We had an excellent stay. Everything we could have wanted was catered for. The oven allowed us to cook wonderful meals in a cosy home away from home (I really love an aga!), and the wood burning stove kept us warm and comfortable curled up by the TV.

The cottage was wonderful. Large, very comfortable, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. It was situated in a very convenient spot near to the very best walks, and lovely countryside. The owners were helpful, but not intrusive.

Great enclosed garden for the dog to run around. Warm reception by the owners. Lovely log burning stove and AGA style cooker.
Mrs Strydom
March 2013
A home away from home, relaxing yet clean, tidy and smart. The owners were available if we had any questions. We had a lovely break, thoroughly enjoyed the walks and drives and it was such a pleasure having the dogs with us for a change. We really enjoyed every minute.
Mrs Merrison
August 2012
We had a fantastic week in lovely accommodation. Great to have use of the tennis court. Good local cycling as well as exciting activities with the Calvert Trust at Kielder Water.
October 2012
The house was amazing, very spacious with beautiful antique furniture and wonderful views of the hills from all the bedroom windows. Probably the best equipped kitchen ever, books, games and two large information folders. So much thought has gone into this house and the surroundings are perfect for walkers. We loved it.
Ms Williams
November 2012
It was a pleasure to return to The Coach House as it is a comfortable house to be in.
Ms Geary
January 2013
The house itself, in terms of size, layout and equipment, as well as its situation, were perfect for us. The furnishings are beautiful and completely in keeping with the age of the property - but everything was still very comfortable, so we were able to relax and feel at home. The enclosed garden and utility room were a great advantage for keen walkers with a dog.
Mrs Arrowsmith
April 2012
Warm, welcoming and homely property, close to lots of activities.
Mr Mrs Sloman
May 2012

Excellent location nice garden. Good walking areas for the dogs. Very comfortable beds. Friendly owners who had left tea, coffee and milk for our arrival plus a bottle of wine.
Mrs Sadourian
March 2012
The cottage was absolutely beautiful, very welcoming and cosy. It really felt like home rather than the usual holiday let. The beds were particularly sumptuous. The owners were also very helpful and friendly. I would recommend The Coach House as a place to stay in Northumberland, and would definitely stay again. Many thanks.
Mr Milano
January 2012
Very friendly owners who live next to the property. Views from the property are stunning. The furniture is not new, but classy - most of it is antique and in keeping with the house. The house was warm with the central heating on and has a lovely log burner in the lounge. The beds are spacious and comfortable. If we return to Northumberland in the future and there is no reason why not as it is a beautiful place, we will return here.
Mrs Smith
January 2012
A comfy, cosy house. Friendly, welcoming hosts. This was our second time here and we've already recommended it to several friends.
Mr Foster
January 2012
The whole experience was stress free, from booking to actually taking the holiday. The Coach House was all that it said, and more. We really can't stress how beautiful the house and location, and how helpful and pleasant the owners were. The house was full of charming features, was olde world yet with modern facilities. No expense had been spared, from ultra modern shower room and Aga, to antique furniture and numerous paintings. The garden was a delight to behold, perfect for us to enjoy, yet totally enclosed to allow dogs and children to roam unattended. I could go on, but suffice to say that this cottage is perfect, warm, dry and welcoming.
Mrs Wootton
January 2012
The warm welcome by the owners. The immaculate attention to detail throughout the house and general thoughtfulness for what a holiday maker needs in a home-from-home. It was the most enjoyable stay we've ever had in a holiday cottage.
Ms Humpage
October 2011
The house and garden were wonderful and the owners were such lovely people and very helpful. A beautiful area and the Lake Kielder marathon is a fantastic event really good for the area.
Mr Begley
September 2011
We felt right at home from the moment we stepped in. The owners were on hand if needed, to advise and help, but totally non intrusive. The weather was not at its' best but the heating was more than adequate. The garden was great for the dogs and there are plenty of walks at Keilder Water. The local butchers and bakers at Bellingham were superb, well worth a try. We would love to return and would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of booking.
Mrs Duffy
October 2011
Lovely property in a beautiful setting. The owners were very pleasent and the area was stunning. The decor was very homely, and the gardern and tennis court was great for the kids.
Ms Gibson
November 2011
The cottage was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the Northumberland countryside. The owners were on hand but not intrusive and welcomed us with milk and a lovely bottle of wine.

The Coach House was lovely and well furnished. It had great character and tonnes of space. We played tennis every day, which was one of the main reasons for staying here and the court was in perfect condition.
Mr Mrs Lister
August 2011
The Coach house is a lovely property and very comfortable for our stay. The whole family enjoyed the tennis courts and the walks around the area were great. We took advantage of Calvert Trust, which is only a short trip away, and the boys took part in many activities they would not normally try such as climbing wall,canoeing, zip wire and king swing. This really made our holiday.
Mr Friend

Mr Holton
November 2010
The house was fabulous, as was the welcome by the owners. The house was furnished to a standard far beyond my expectations of a holiday home and was far from the usual cheap/old items. The kitchen was really well equipped and had ample crockery. The lounge was really cosy with the wood burner and furnishings. I really can't recommend the house and owners enough - it's a great place to stay and we had a fantastic holiday there!
Ms Williams

With six adults in the property, there still feels plenty of space.

The owners made us feel welcome. The cottage was superb, plenty of room, a log fire to die for. Can't say enough about the cottage and the fantastic garden. First time we spent Christmas away from home and the cottage made this the best ever. Can't wait to return to our magic cottage. 10/10, 5 star, without a doubt. Don't delay, book today.

Mr Marland
July 2009
The property exceeded expectations and was better than described in the brochure.The exposed oak beams and general olde worldiness of the property gave a unique charm that we haven't experienced before.

Mrs Rutherford
June 2008
First time to Northumberland and the scenery is beautiful House was very good plenty of room for 6 people and dogs! Keilder Water is stunning. The Monroes were very friendly and helpful
Mrs Walker
July 2008
The owners were almost on site but never interfered and were very helpful when we did contact them. The garden and tennis court were divine. As a family getting together for a silver wedding, it 'extended' the house and gave us lots of space to chat and unwind.The Aga in the kitchen gave us hours of cooking fun. A real treat for the cooks amongst us. We just felt so relaxed and with so much to do within a close radius, I couldn't have chosen more wisely, if I do say so myself.
Mr Delaney
March 2009
A lovely garden, ideal for dogs and children. A beautiful first class location.
Mr Ricketts
March 2009
I can think of nothing to say about the Coach House...that has not already been said many, many times. The location is quite and peaceful and the welcome from the owner was individual. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Friendliness of the owners - very helpful but we were given our own space. Simple but important differences we haven't experienced before - eg, bottle of wine on arrival, very comprehensive tourist info guide (first time we haven't needed to go to the local tourist info office).
Miss Manning
May 2008
Property well equipped and comfortable. Area excellent for walking, cycling and sight seeing. The tennis courts were a real bonus.
Mr Bowman
February 2008
The Photos of this property on your website do not do the property justice. It far exceeded our expectations. Really lovely.
Ms Ridgewell

Mr Pannett

You could not have wished for a nicer place. The warm welcome (incl.the wine)the cosy atmosphere,everything was perfect. The surrounding country side, the local people and pubs. Information leaflets were available to read and a full glossary of all we needed to know was at hand. We were allowed to take our two well behaved dogs, even the rabbits that were merrily munching away at the owners vegatable patch were friendly. Despite the weather we had a brilliant time, the owner was away but came back as we were leaving, a very nice gentleman, we hope to go back in the not too distant future, back to Hadrian's Wall and Greysteads Coach House,lovely.

Mrs Yates
June 2006
The scenery is spectacular and the house is fairly central for touring the area. A beautiful spot! This is a lovely house to stay in and we were made to feel most welcome by the owners. The village of Bellingham is attractive and has enough shops to cater for most peoples needs.

It was an absolute delight to stay at the property from the minute we arrived until our departure. It is an absolute gem and I will definitely be going back!
Mr Mrs Earle
October 2006
There was a variety of things to do on your doorstep. You were very close to Keilder but also close to Hadrians Wall and you had shared use of a new all-weather tennis court in the garden. There was fishing too on site if you wanted it. The owners were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. There was a lovely welcome note and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. The accommodation was very spacious and very comfortable. There was a comprehensive and up-to-date folder listing all there was to do in the area, places to visit, where to eat, where all the facilities were etc.
Mrs Parkes
June 2005
This was a great property with charm and character.
Mr Garrett

The large garden was fantastic - perfect for children to explore.
Mr Wilson
December 2004
The standard of the property was excellent we couldn't beleive it wasn't the main house when we arrived. The furniture, fixtures and fittings were to a very high standard. It was great not to be limited by wanting to take two dogs they were made very welcome and had use of a secure garden.
Mr Wills
January 2005
The location is the main reason why we wanted a break in Northumbria; however we did not expect the cottage to be so beautiful. The location is perfect, with a stunning view of the countryside that made eating breakfast such a pleasurable moment - each and every day. The cottage more than catered for our every need. The description on the website fails to do it justice! The welcome message left by Ann made us feel totally at home from the moment we stepped foot through the door. The hosts are a very nice couple who valued our privacy, but were on call if we needed assistance. If we were to describe the Coach House in a word, then that word just has to be WOW! This is one cottage we will definitely be returning too. Thank you Sykes Cottages; and especially a very big thank you to Ann Bill for ensuring that our winter break was memorable.

We really enjoyed the holiday, the house was very inviting and we felt relaxed. This was our first time to Northumbria and we will certainly be back in the future!

A beautiful cottage situated in a remote idyllic location. Plenty of space for our party of six adults, and we were very impressed by the period features and lovely bedrooms. The house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Owners were unobtrusive but very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing break which was over too soon!

It was so beautiful to find ourselves staying sat this beautiful hour. Great beds, wonderful deep bath with lots of hot water. Just what we needed after the long walks. The river close by, convenient location; secluded but amenities a fews miles away. Greystead oozed good taste and comfortable living. A wonderful place to relax and watch the dark skies. Use of the large open garden was important for us amateur star gazers. All the amenities we could ask for and such friendly people. And having a jug of milk with tea and coffee on arrival was so thoughtful and a bottle of wine !! Thank you .We will be back !!!

We had a fantastic week in this excellent property. Fabulous period features and furniture give the property a luxurious country feel. The house is well equipped and there was nothing that hadn't been thought of. Very clean and high quality fittings made the stay very comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome and at home. A brilliant base to get away from the world and enjoy the Northumbrian countryside. A holiday we shall certainly remember.

A beautiful property that is really well appointed with quality fixtures and fittings. The house is warm and very comfortable and the location is great for getting around the area especially Corbridge, Hadrians Wall and Kielder Forest. The walks through the forest are fantastic. The garden at the Coach house is wonderful for star gazing and we actually saw some shooting stars. The owners are delightful and are on hand if needed but do not impose themselves on you. If we visit this area of Northumberland again we would definitely go back to this property.

Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing and peaceful week at The Coach House. Left to our own devices, within easy drive of Holy Island on the coast, Bamburgh Castle, Kielder Forest and Bellingham. Property was great for large family, or like us, a couple with dogs and room for visiting overnight family members. Made to feel very welcome, and the owners were very helpful with a blown tyre due to a serious pothole in the area - the only downside to the entire week. The state of the roads in Northumberland leaves alot to be desired! However, managed to source local help via the owners and enjoyed an enforced day off with local walks and exploration. The property is very spacious and flexible enough to cater for all visitors and our four legged friends, all 3 of them! Heartfelt recommendation to stay here even in February!

The service from Sykes was excellent staffare very pleasant. Mr and Mrs Monroe who own the cottage live in the house next to the coach house and were on hand if we had any queries. Very nice couple who left a welcome gift of Milk in the fridge and a lovely bottle of red wine. The cottage was very comfortable and the furnishings enhanced the cottage feel. Well equipped with everything you could need. The Queen sized bed was heaven. The cottage is set in large grounds with a lovely river walk just outside the gates to the cottage. It is also a short drive to Keilder Forrest with great walks. Not far to the Coquet Valley We found a lovely Butchers in Bellingham and are coming back to him for our Christmas meat as it was so nice. Enjoyed the tennis court which was well used throughout our stay. Loved the log burning stove. Just a perfect cottage to enjoy a realaxing break. Would deffinately return.
October 2012
We stayed at the Coach House to provide a base from which our children could run the Keilder Marathon, and then stayed on for the rest of the week. What a treat a real home from home, everything was comfortable ,clean and tasteful. Wonderfully equipped spacious and just wonderful. To be really picky the only thing that was not up to our home standards was the shower which was a bit small, but we will be back despite this as there is always the bath.!!

This cottage just oozed character. From the comfy lounge with log fire and bureau, the spacious formal dining room complete with suitably chunky furnishings, the scatter rugs and massive king size bed in the main room and the warm and inviting kitchen - this cottage wraps its arms around you from the start! The owners live next door - close enough to call on if you need anything (like local information) but not so close that you feel invaded. I will be back to this lovely part of the country and if this cottage is available I will certainly book it again.

A fantastic, impressive house beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The secure walled garden was lovely for us and our dog to enjoy. Owners were very welcoming, offering help should it be required and respected our privacy too! A wonderful house in a wonderful part of the world.

We had a lovely holiday here. The Coach House is spacious, tasteful, warm and well equipped. The owners are charming and helpful. Great base from which to explore Northumberland's wildest landscapes. Bellingham a great little village with sufficient amenities and only a short drive away. Would definitely stay again here without hesitation.

A very comfortable well equipped holiday home. The only problem we had was the size of the radiators in the house - as the weather was cold outside the radiators didn't give out enough heat in this high celing, large rooms, coach house. The owners were very pleasant and made us feel very welcome.

We brought our australian friends here who thoroughly enjoyed their first ever stay in an english country cottage. Lovely cottage and gardens. And an aga to play with!! Owners close by and so helpful.

Fabulous garden; we made excellent use of the tennis court, the wildlife was a bonus (apart from the midges). Wonderful house -very comfortable, spacious and well provided. In a lovely, quiet part of England with lots to do in the area.
April 2010
We could not fault this cottage. Everything about it from the location to the facilities to the owners exceeded all our expectations. Without doubt we will book this cottage again.

The accommodation is first rate, elegant and spacious with excellent facilities. The garden and tennis court are a great extra, dogs are made extremely welcome and the owners are so welcoming and helpful. The surrounding area is beautiful, Kielder Water is 10 minutes away, this offers great outdoor activites at the wonderul lake and forest park. This is a truly special place, set in one of the most beautiful part os the country - can not be recommended enough!!

From the moment we opened the door to this beautiful home to the time we closed it, we felt as though we were at home. The owner of the cottage had ensured it was warm and welcoming and was friendly and non intrusive throughout our stay. My sons who live in Newcastle and Scotland are unable to visit us at our home in Sussex very often and do not spend time together due to work commitments, this lovely house opened its doors to us all and we spent many evenings round the log fire together. Unlike many holiday homes, where it is obvious the owner has filled the rooms with utilitarian furniture and fittings, this lovely coach house had things that 'fitted'it was charming and we fell in love with it. Especially the Queen bed.We took some lovely photos from the kitchen window and now |I want to go back.

The cottage was reasonably priced, was tastefully furnished very comfortable and a superb location for walking and kielder forest . As we played tennis it was an added bonus. The only thing i have to grumble about but im sure it will be tackled in the near future is the path down to the river and along needs clearing as it was quite overgrown. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
