"Fantastic cottage lovely place made my Christmas staying here, the cottage was decorated when we arrived for Christmas and had a welcome gift of homemade mince pies and some mulled wine, as a lovely little surprise. All you could ask for is there, utensils, cooking pans etc, lots of information on the surrounding areas and lots of into on the cottage and were things are etc. the bath was amazing and a lovely touch is the table to hold your wine and glasses while in the bath, lovely place 10 out of 10."
"Heavenfield Cottage is an absolutely gorgeous self-catering destination for couples travelling to the North East. It’s ideally located for all local amenities but also away from the hustle and bustle in the gorgeous Northumbrian countryside. The cottage interior finish is extremely high and so very comfortable, everything you need has been thought of, we enjoyed it so much and would return in a heartbeat. I can’t recommend this cottage enough…it’s superb!"
"We had a lovely time at Heavenfield Cottage. I don’t think there is any more our hosts could have done to make us feel welcome. The cottage is beautifully equipped and extremely comfortable. As a base for exploring Kielder Forest, Northumberland National Park and the Northumberland Coast it was excellent. Even though our stay was in the midst of freezing temperatures, sleet and snow the cottage was a haven."
"Well I’m not even going to wait until the end of our visit. This place is pure luxury with everything catered for and a great attention to detail. A fantastic place to come back to today after our walk to Sycamore Gap in every different type of weather possible. Had such a warm welcome yesterday with the fire lit and a beautifully decorated, festive house. 5 Star beautiful property, great location, you must visit."
"Heavenfield Cottage is wonderful! Easter week was wet and snowy, but the cottage was so warm & cosy to come home to, with underfloor heating & wood burner. Everything has been so carefully thought out, superb bathroom, very well equipped kitchen, excellent TV & wifi, very comfortable bedroom, good range of DCI Ryan novels! And plenty of extra things too - such as a hamper of local produce including delicious Northumbrian cheese, local eggs. And Easter eggs! Thank you John & Lorraine! We will be back."

"Premier cottage. Everything about it, including fixtures, fittings, equipment was a ‘cut above’. A beautifully restored building! The owners had obviously thought of everything. Ideally located for those with an interest in history, both Roman and Medieval. Also close to the amenities of Hexham. We had a wonderful time."
"This cottage is really something special and it is a pity the highest rating is 10 as we would happily rate it higher. It is far and above the best place we have stayed in. Furniture and fittings are of high quality. Lighting is excellent. Huge fluffy towels are provided. The owners, Lorraine and John, are warm, friendly and very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. An absolute gem. We loved it."

"An excellent long weekend away at Heavenfield Cottage. The property was fantastic and has everything you need. The owners could not have been more helpful and the location is perfect for exploring Hadrian’s Wall, especially as it is built right on top of it! Would love to visit again in the future."
"We had such a special weekend here, thank you Lorraine and John for an utterly luxurious and outrageously comfortable stay in your stunning cottage - so many thoughtful extra touches, a warm welcome and wonderful peace and quiet. Can’t wait to return!."
"We had an excellent stay in Heavenfield Cottage. It was so wonderfully positioned for all the things we wanted to do like visit WWT Washington, Bowes Museum, Bewick Museum, Pitmen’s Paintings at Ashington, visit friends, Corbridge and Hexham. And the cottage was super good. Recently renovated to the highest standard, Lorraine has woven her magic in terms of interior design. Fabulously comfortable with huge bed and lovely sitting room - ‘forest’ shower and super deep bath. When you get those candles lit you’d think you were in bathroom heaven. Kitchen is very well equipped with dishwasher and washing machine/dryer - and every other thing you could possibly need. Lorraine and John were perfect hosts - friendly and welcoming but not in any way intrusive - good balance struck there guys! We had a lovely time at Heavenfield. Thank you."
"This has to be one of the best holiday cottages we've ever stayed in, and we've stayed in a few over the years. Beautifully appointed with huge, comfortable sofa and chair, an enormous bed with thick feather duvet and pillows, a super-luxurious bathroom with a walk-in shower and bath, and furnished in the kind of style you'd normally expect in a 5-star hotel. Plus, the little touches that show how much the owners Lorraine and John care about making this a wonderful experience for their guests, from flowers and candles, to bathrobes and thick fluffy towels, not to mention a bottle of bubble bath and a cake to celebrate my completing the Kielder Marathon! Thank you so much - we can't recommend you enough!"
"We’ve just had a glorious week at St Oswald’s Farm which is in a perfect location to explore Northumberland. Absolutely loved our stay at the cottage which catered for all our needs. John and Lorraine are the perfect hosts. The cottage is certainly 5* and we - like so many others before - look forward to returning."
"Superb accommodation in a wonderful location. Lorraine and John have thought of absolutely everything in the cottage, and all to a very high standard. There is so much to do both locally and further afield which all adds to this being a first rate place for a holiday in Northumberland. We will be back ... definitely in fact, as we have already booked for next year ..."
"Five star welcome to five star luxurious cottage. Having stayed in various cottages we can say that this is the best we've booked. Everything was spotlessly clean and there were little welcoming touches which made us feel at home. Lorraine herself was there to give us a warm welcome. A lovely place to either explore the surrounding area or just relax."
"This converted farm building has been afforded every attention to detail to make you feel comfortable. With underfloor heating and individual room thermostats, excellent walk-in shower, full range of kitchen appliances, quality bed, tasteful décor it has everything you could need. A delightful welcome food basket and flowers showed a thoughtful touch. The location is perfect for visiting all the key Roman ruins and the cottage is actually located on part of Hadrian's wall. John and Lorraine were lovely hosts and we were reluctant to leave."
"We enjoyed a three night stay in this lovely cottage. The cottage is beautifully presented, highest spec, fully functioning kitchen with all appliances and equipment, huge bathroom and fantastically comfortable bed. Great location. Everything one could need. Very much hope to find an opportunity to return!"
"A very stylish but also very comfortable cottage, with quality shown in every detail. A great place for grown ups! Very well equipped and well placed for exploring this beautiful area. Lorraine provided us with a lovely welcome pack including ice cold home made lemonade, which was very refreshing after a hot journey. It also came in useful later when I found I had forgotten the tonic to go with the gin! Having breakfast outside watching the swallows swoop was very peaceful. Lorraine and John are helpful and friendly making you feel at home. Would certainly recommend a visit."
"This is without doubt the best cottage we have stayed in. The location is stunning, surrounded by open countryside and picturesque villages. Lorraine and John were lovely and made us feel very welcome, they have finished the cottage to an extremely highly standard, the attention to detail is second to none. We will definitely be back!! "

"Heavenfield Cottage at St Oswald's Farm is absolutely fantastic. It's in a beautiful location and adjacent to the working farm. On arrival we were met by the lovely host, Lorraine and her husband, John. We were given a brief history of the cottage, the farm and the surrounding ancient Roman locations. The cottage is ideally placed to explore the local ancient Roman history or for visiting the nearby towns and villages. There’s even a 7th century church in the field next to the farm. The cottage itself actually sits on Hadrian's Wall (now that’s history). The cottage has recently been restored and fully renovated. The thought and attention to detail is to a very high standard. The open plan entrance area, kitchen/lounge, bathroom and bedroom are immaculate and have to be seen to be fully appreciated. This is the best cottage I have ever stayed in."
"Without doubt, the loveliest self catering cottage we have ever stayed in. Our hosts Lorraine and John went above and beyond to make us feel welcome - our welcome package of local produce included a homemade cake for two to celebrate my birthday (nice touch!), the log burner was already lit for our arrival and our weekend was truly made when I was able to cuddle a new born lamb. The cottage was so warm and inviting, perfect for a very cold and snowy weekend in March - the underfloor heating was bliss and my husband became obsessed with tending our very own log burner. We hid away from the nasty weather and had a really relaxing break. Our little home for two had everything! A huge freestanding bath tub (complete with a little side table for wine glasses!), huge bed, fluffy towels, dressing gowns and toiletries! Every time we opened a cupboard or drawer we discovered something else - we were particularly impressed with the picnic and BBQ equipment for guests to enjoy (if only the weather had been better for our stay!) and the Northumberland Parking Disc was really appreciated when we visited Hexham for the day. Ideally located close to the towns of Hexham and Corbridge we loved being close to pubs and supermarkets yet still having that wonderful feeling of being lost in the countryside. We definitely want to return and walk some of nearby Hadrians Wall! Thank you so much for such a lovely stay! We were very reluctant to leave your lovely cottage!"
