“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 1 September 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Everything was perfect including the weather. We were made very welcome from the moment we got there and didn’t want to leave. The cottage was well equipped and the location was ideal. Plenty to see from caves, waterfalls, castles and Hadrian’s wall not too far. We saw a tawny owl in the nearby woods which made my grandsons day and the night sky was amazing with no light pollution.

Would highly recommend this area and especially Howlugill Barn. Thank you.

“Truly wonderful”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We really didn't want to leave this wonderful place this morning. Spent the perfect week there. Beautifully furnished. Best weeks sleep on the most comfortable beds. Will miss the call of the curlew, the house martins flitting in and out of their nests feeding their young and the lapwings in the field . It is incredibly quiet with wonderful views.
