The Bothy is a delightful 19th century listed barn on an old farm. The room is light and airy with stunning views over the Northumberland countryside, between the Cheviots and the Northumberland coast. There is a large garden for visitors use, and dark skies above us. We are an eco friendly family, and the Bothy comes with a composting toilet in a separate wooden shed, and a spring fed water supply just outside the door. Think of it as luxury camping in a stone tent.

We weren't able to make it, so this is a review regarding Fliss as a communicator. She was a perfect host in this respect, very fast to respond to all my queries and emails, and I have no doubt our stay would've been great if our whole family hadn't fallen ill with a flu less…
