    Fabulous little cottage with a brilliant hot tub. Just the thing to return back to after a long day out. I would definitely recommend this little gem of a place. My only negatives are that the towels were a little small but this is no issue really, and it would be nice to have a pub nearby to walk to on an evening but this is just a personal choice. Great place to chill and relax with the sheep nearby bleating happily. We spoke to the owner who was very friendly and made sure all was in order for us. We will certainly be returning to The Fauld really enjoyable stay.

    Fantastic location, amazing views. Hot tub awesome. Would definitely return but only if the bed was bigger, there is definitely room for a larger bed should the owners wish to change at some point.

    My wife, my dog & I recently stayed at The Fauld. We booked it as it was in a great location for Kielder Forest, the Lake District & Hadrians Wall. We were not disappointed with the location & visited all 3 quite easily. It was about an hour to the Lake District & a little more for the Kielder Forest & Hadrians Wall is about 15 minutes away. Initially our first impression of The Fauld was excellent. It was cosy & comfortable looking. The kitchen was small but fairly well equipped, the lounge was again cosy with plenty of soft seating and the bedroom was spacious. However there were only 5 coat hangars provided so we had no choice but to put everything in drawers. Luckily creased clothes are not an issue when out walking. The bathroom was another story! The shower is the worst I have ever witnessed. On occasion, we could not even get it to switch on as the water pressure was so minimal & the shower would not activate. If the shower did switch on then the water temperature was intermittent depending on the flow of water through the unit. The first time I "texted" the owners to let them know that it was not working, they replied quickly & tried to assist but my other time I texted them we were ignored. The towels that are provided are inadequate. They were so small they did not even wrap around the body . In addition if the website states "towels provided" then we assumed there would also be some for the hot tub. Luckily we took a dog towel that we were able to use! The hot tub was a great way to relax in the evenings after a hard days walking and the temperature was wonderful. The cottage was not the cleanest but being on a working farm this was understandable but if someone wants a spotless place to stay this would not be the best place for them. Overall we had a good week & we hate to sound negative but just a few improvements could have made a big difference.
