Our visitors’ books are great to read through over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and provide a wealth of recommendations on the best places to eat and visit, as well as some useful tips to benefit other guests. We also send Guest Surveys to all our guests after their holiday and some of their comments are listed here.
The cottage is located inland and in an area of Northumberland that we had not visited before. It was also spacious offering plenty of space for all members of our group. The cottage itself was large and plenty of room for our party. The outside space was great including being able to walk straight into the wood attached to the property. It is evident that the owners care about the experience that they are offering to customers.
Amazingly warm welcome from owner, and very helpful throughout the week with tips and hot tub provisions. Excellent basket provided on arrival, local produce mostly. It was great to have essentials- bread, butter and milk and very nice to have local baking, with fruit included.
We loved the size, the space, the large kitchen table to seat everyone, the outside space, availability of the cottage next door to accommodate family and the hot tub! The décor was gorgeous and super clean. It was so well equipped and we had the most amazing comfortable stay. We have stayed in Coquet cottages before and they are always beautiful. We will definitely use your company again. Paul was a fantastic attentive host and really went above and beyond to make our stay special. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Roses Bower to friends and would go back in a heartbeat.
Lovely stay, well organised and a lovely house. The wood burner was amazing, so efficient and cosy. We also loved the design of the building and it has been really thoughtfully laid out with everything we could possibly have needed, 5 stars all round! Thank you to our excellent host for his very warm welcome and communication during our stay.
Great place to stay with the family. It was a lovely location, children were welcome and catered for. All bedrooms had en-suites, the hot tub was a hit with the grown up children. And our grandson who is 18 months old loved the drums. We were very comfortable and had lots of space to find a quiet spot.

Wonderful! Spacious, two large (dining) tables, outside area great for games and of course the hot tub, but my favourite was the extremely comfortable armchairs upstairs with stunning views! Very generous and luxurious welcome basket! We were very satisfied! Thank you.
Had an absolutely fantastic stay at the Drum Barn. The property is finished to an extremely high standard, is warm, immaculately clean, has all mod cons and an amazing outdoor hot tub. The owner lives nearby and couldn’t have been more helpful – ensuring we all arrived safely through heavy snow and even offering to pick us up! I booked through Coquet Cottages and was very impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff, they were a pleasure to speak to. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Drum Barn to anyone and my friends and I certainly hope to return.
Wow! What a super cottage! Stayed in the whole of Roses Bower, a family of 15 for a wedding in Northumberland. Thank you Paul very much for a fantastic stay and the welcome pack was sensational. Hot tubs also perfect! Monty also loved the woods! Definitely will recommend.
A wonderful stay. Rolo the dog loved the paddock and woods. A great barn. Paul the owner was superb and very helpful.
Amazing barn that was beautifully decorated, a gorgeous hot tub topped with beautiful views.
Wonderful barn and setting. The children have had the time of their lives. We had everything we needed so truly a home away from home. Paul has been so friendly and helpful. Loved our time here.
Gorgeous place, excellent facilities, loved the hot tub! And reliving my youth on the trampoline!
Stunning place! Would love to visit again. Thanks!
What a wonderful place and an idyllic setting. We had a wonderful easter weekend at the Drum Barn and honoured to be the second guests staying. We will be back.
A beautiful property in beautiful surroundings. The woodland and field are a great and safe place for the children to play. The property had everything you could need and more. The surrounding area is full of things to do. Paul the owner is very helpful and ensured our stay was perfect. Many thanks.
We had the best time in your wonderful property.
Beautiful property, perfect for family gatherings with lots of space and perfect facilities. Paul the host is very welcoming and helpful.
Had such a fabulous weekend stay here. All mod cons and incredible bedrooms and ensuite facilities. Really sociable space. How could you not have fun here!
Great place, spacious and well equipped. Hot tub and trampoline were both well used by us. We’ve definitely had some fun and I suspect we will be back!
Wonderful place! Peaceful, beautiful views, superb quality and attention to detail. The owner could not have been more helpful. Highly recommended.
We’ve had a fantastic weekend stay here to celebrate a 40th birthday. The children loved the trampoline and football net. The barn is beautiful with amazing views. Paul, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. Thank you.
Beautiful cottage with amazing views. The hot tub is brilliant and owner is very helpful. Hard not to have fun, lovely weekend.
We very much enjoyed our stay. The children had a ball on the trampoline and all enjoyed the hot tub.
We had an excellent stay here, fabulous venue and amazing host. We had just the perfect weekend celebrating in a group of 16 girls. The gin cocktails were an extra special treat!
Lovely stay in a great building. Kids loved the trampoline and hot tub (it was a hit with the grown-ups as well!).
A fantastic cottage with every imaginable quality item needed and more Beautiful surroundings, a wonderful place to stay. Paul the owner is very friendly and helpful. I will recommend RB cottages to all and will visit again in the future.
