ARRIVAL AND CAR PARKING
On-street parking directly outside the front door but not exclusively for the use of guests: Mundles is diagonally opposite the church and a few yards down the road from an active village hall.

MAIN ENTRANCE
There is a step up through the front door and into the tiny entrance area, once inside the doormat is sunk into the floor (change of texture and consequently uneven), the stairs up to the top floor are immediately opposite and a latched door to the living room is sharp right.

LIVING ROOM
Space is tight. The floors are varnished pine. Further latched door to:

SMALL LOBBY AND KITCHEN
The floors to the former are varnished pine and there is a slight hump where the tiled floor of the kitchen meets. Fridge, freezer and dishwasher are all low level but sink, kettle, toaster, microwave and cupboards are all at waist height or above.

BACK DOOR TO COURTYARD
Stable door with a high handle, step up and over the threshold and two steps down to gravelled courtyard garden. Outbuilding and range of 3 doors:

  • coalshed (out of bounds),
  • latched door and step up into small “conservatory”, furnished with a table and chairs. The barbecue should be taken outside for use,
  • Utility room containing washing machine, dryer, second toilet and small sink.

UPSTAIRS
Narrow uneven carpeted stairs to a small landing, further step up to (for want of better word) corridor, which is also very narrow.

Bathroom is tiled and compact, no grab handles on the bath and the shower has to be stepped up and into, the sliding doors would not not react favourably to being leant on. Bedrooms carpeted. There are restricted head access on both outside walls of the rooms.

GENERAL
No landline; not the best mobile reception; Wi-fi. 
Electrical sockets accessible and generally set low.

Reviews

I really enjoyed my stay in this cosy cottage. The owner contacted me the day before my holiday, with information on the area and advice about the wood-burning stove! The lady who takes care of the cottage locally dropped in on my first day to check all was ok, which I very much appreciated. Northumbria is a beautiful county!

Ms Robin B,

First class throughout and to be recommended, although I would prefer to keep it all to myself!

mr J S,

Beautifully furnished and very well equipped. Extremely cosy and homely, we loved it. Excellent communication from property owner and local custodian, very much appreciated

Miss Laura P,

'Mundles' is a lovely holiday cottage, very quiet, peaceful and comfortable. It's only a car ride from amazing things to do, and a great place to come home to at the end of the day. The little yard was perfect for our dog, and for us to sit out in. The cottage had everything we needed, the quality of the equipment and furnishings was very high, and the heated towel rail in the little walk in cupboard was genius, we got drenched a couple of times and were able to get warm and dry easily. Caroline and Noelle provided great holiday advice, by text and face to face, we felt like real VIPs, they made sure we had everything we needed.

Ms Penny P,
