A Great Summer at Willow Cottage

Looks like everyone has had a nice time at Willow Cottage this year, we have had some great feedback from the booking company and our guests – that means more work over the winter to make it even better for next year. I need to improve the heating and dehumidifier controls to provide the very best comfort. The weather on the other hand is down to luck.

“Jackie” said “I would definitely recommend it to anyone and as a family wedding can’t wait to return”

“Veronica” said “A very pretty cottage in a sleepy village… we thoroughly enjoyed our stay”

“David” said “A wonderful week in a fantastic home away from home…. Beautiful area and one which we will come back to!”

Thanks for the really great comments folks, look forward to having you stay with us again.

What They Say

These are the very first comments we at Willow Cottage in Wark on Tyne have received, un-edited and genuine. We are particularly excited given the less than ideal weather for much of April and early May:

AH of Worcestershire: What a beautiful cottage. Hats off to the internal decor… A lovely spot to explore the beautiful area– all lovely, we will be back.

RD from Exeter: Lovely Willow Cottage. What can we say? Everything you could want and more. Thank you so much. Had a fab time.

Green Award for Sustainability

Willow Cottage has just received the Northumbrian Cottages Green Award for Sustainability. Rather than bore you with the details, we’re proud of this so here are a couple of pics to prove we’re not making this up as we go along…


and here’s another:


There are various measure of how householders can help the environment and the use of LED lighting often comes high on the list. At Willow Cottage we use LED lighting almost exclusively. We’ve also fitted air source heat pump heating and hot water supply. We have a multi-fuel heater but generally this is used only to supplement the central heating on the odd occasion that it is really cold outside.

Churches and More

A couple of photos we took of the old church, walking distance just outside of Wark. A great area for some quiet time.

Willow Cottage became available for holiday cottage rental bookings in April 2019 – check here for updates including booking – or contact Maureen on the contact page.

You may well know us from Hollyberry Cottage, our previous holiday rental property in nearby Bellingham. Of course, we would be more than happy to hear from our past guests as well as new visitors.

We hope our new endeavour meets or exceeds the standards you came to expect at Hollyberry Cottage.
