A great week in a lovely cottage!
Booking was straightforward and the owners answered our emails promptly regarding bike storage and the hot tub. They were flexible with the arrival time and arranged to meet us at their shop to avoid us getting lost following our sat nav! We had a tour of the cottage which included some lovely touches such as snacks and wine. They have clearly put a lot of thought into the furnishings which were homely and comfortable and equipped for our every need.
Despite the atrocious windy weather we had a great week cycling and running with the help of Gordon and Joanne's expert local knowledge! We also appreciated the use their porch to store our road bikes. On our last night we enjoyed a romantic evening stargazing in the hot tub which was a great end to the holiday!
We already look forward to going back when the weather is better!

We were looking for somewhere to escape and recharge our batteries. Petty Knowes was perfect and did just that. We were greeted by the owners who were lovely. They gave us lots of information about the area, we took their advice and enjoyed a good few days exploring.
The cottage is very close to the Kielder Forest Drive, as well as the Pennine Way.
We arrived at the cottage to be welcomed by Joanne and Gordon, and a wonderful afternoon tea in the fridge. Just Perfect!
The cottage is ideal, very cosy, with the real fire and a lovely clean and tidy Kitchen with everything you need. The bed is so comfortable, you may struggle to get out of it :-)
We very much enjoyed shutting the door on an evening and hiding away with the fire on and some nice food cooking.
We spent our last night star gazing whilst watching the flares going off in the distance over the military base. The perfect end to the perfect break.
Can't wait to get back there!
This is our second visit . Love the cottage . Joanne and Gordon are very friendly and helpful . It was our wedding anniversary . And Joanne had set the high tea table , with chocs , flowers and wine ect . Perfect ... The coal fire is a real treat , brings back childhood memories . The scenery is fetching . Even though we had rain and winds we still managed a dip in the hot tub and a relaxing time in the sauna
Myself and my other other decide to have a cheeky night away and opted for petty knowes cottage as it was to far from where we lived.
We absolutly over the moon with the cottage very homely,snug ,clean only 1 word could describe this holiday cottage and that is PERFECT ! We had a wonderful time and made to feel very welcome by the owners gordon and Joanne who were very welcoming and a absouloute delight! The only problem we had was we wish we could have stayed longer but due to work commitments it's back to the grind unfortunately
We hope to return very soon!
Fabulous accomodation and amazing host gordon and Joanne ! 5* all the way !
Wow! What can I say other than this cottage is a piece of pure heaven!! From the moment we arrived we felt like we were in the lap of luxury! We were greeted with a lovely welcome from Gordon and Joanne the owners of the cottage. They gave us a detailed tour of the cottage and even presented us with some little extras for my 30th birthday, which was a lovely surprise. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could need for a stay in a self catering cottage in the beautiful Northumberland countryside. It has a beautiful dreamy bed which I could have spent the entire holiday sleeping in. There's a warm cozy log fire for those chilly nights and big comfy sofas to sink into. There's a large range of books and magazines to help you choose places to visit during your stay. If your lucky and enjoy archaeology and Roman history Gordon may even give you a history lesson! :) As well as suggesting the best places to visit for Hadrians Wall. The cottage is set up on a area giving beautiful views over Northumberland. As well as the luxury of the cottage itself we were able to use the hot tub situated behind the main house. This was a real treat and we saw the most beautiful sunset whilst drinking Champagne! With chickens roaming free and lazy cats patrolling the garden, what more could you want from a rural retreat? Answer..... Nothing!!! Petty Knowes Cottage has everything! I will recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a quiet getaway from everyday life. A bonus is they allow dogs too so don't forget your four legged friend. I'm sure they will thank you for it!!! We had the most amazing week walking all around the countryside and feel we have made friends for life as well as some amazing memories!! Not forgetting meeting the resident chicken - Cornelius!!! :)
