Our reviews…

“If you are thinking about booking - don't think; just book! it will be the best decision you have ever made. It is in a beautiful area with stunning views and the accommodation is truly spectacular and very luxurious (it is one of a kind that everyone should experience, the view from the bedroom window over looking the valley will be a fond memory of ours for many years to come). Dave and Sandra are very kind and are also fantastic hosts, they were always there when we needed them and lovely to chat too. We have stayed in many cottages over the 7 years of being a couple and this was by far the greatest weekend we have ever had. We will struggle to find anything better. We are already planning our next trip to our favourite airbnb!”

“Oh. My. God. If this isn't the most beautiful house on the most beautiful hill top in that area, then I don't know what is. David and Sandra have created a slice of paradise. Yes the surroundings and the view from the house is amazing, but so is the house. The pictures speak for themselves. Go, just go there.”

“I don't know where to begin? This is probably one of the top ten places I have ever stayed in my life. It was a last minute booking (I had some work to do and wanted to be undistracted for a few days), but David and Sandra were super accommodating, and when I arrived at this stunning location (in the dark - my fault) I was stunned. Everything about this place has been so beautifully put together. I'm a bit of an interior decor fiend and I found myself taking notes - 'must try this at home'. There is a sumptuousness about this beautiful place which bespeaks generosity - a lovely quality. I sat in the fabulous lounge, watching the sun traverse the South Tyne valley, and work didn't feel like work at all... Book while you can - I intend to make them an offer they can't refuse and move in!”

“We cannot recommend Windy hall enough. The location is ideal for an 'away from it all', luxurious break. Fantastic views and surrounded by wildlife. We were met by David who was very friendly and helpful. The house has everything you need and more-immaculate, very well equipped and luxurious. The perfect place if you enjoy walking or, like us, need a de-stress or just a bit of a treat. We were even provided with fresh eggs from our hosts chickens. Nearby Alston has a co-op, a whole-food store and several other shops including a great chippy. Without a doubt, our favourite Airbnb to date.”

“David & Sandra have made Windy Hall an exceptional place to stay in a truly stunning location, making for an amazing away from it all holiday yet with the convenience of Alston's amenities a short drive (or lovely walk) away. They really have thought of everything. ”

“When looking for the perfect "get away from it all" honeymoon we found Windy Hall. It was our first Airbnb booking and it did not disappoint. It is an incredible building in the most amazing surroundings completely away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. David and Sandra were brilliant hosts, both friendly and helpful; they couldn't do enough for us. Thank you for your hospitality (and the warm welcome from the family pets). Windy Hall was exactly what we wanted... we can't wait to come back!”

“We absolutely couldn't have picked a better place for a quiet few days away before our first child arrives in the new year. Communication before our trip, including help above and beyond about how to get to Windy Hall from Newcastle was outstanding. If you are considering public transport, the bus direct from Newcastle is a lovely little journey and Alston has a great range of shops to get all the food you'd need for your stay. The entire Hall has been beautifully thought out by David and Sandra with everything you could possibly need right down to milk and hot chocolate!! We were cosy throughout our stay despite the weather and couldn't have wished for a better view. As said in earlier reviews, if you're even considering this property for a stay, just book it. You'll have a wonderful time.”

“We had an amazing week at Windy Hall. The house is absolutely gorgeous. Comfortable beds, great shower and bath, well-equipped kitchen, and every single room feels cosy and homely. And the view! We never got tired of staring out of the living room window at the valley. We did some great walks in the area, and we also had a couple of trips out to Hadrian's Wall and to the Lake District. Dave and Sandy are the perfect hosts, and we hope to see them again on another visit one day. Thanks so much!”

"The place is incredible; you have thought of every little detail to make everyone feel at home. We have thoroughly loved and enjoyed our stay here; not only is your home and the views most welcoming, peaceful and beautiful, but you have been amazing hosts. Thank you again for an unforgettable visit.”

"This is the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in and we have been to lots! The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The house is beyond expectations and so comfortable. Laying in bed or sitting on the sofa looking out at the wonderful views through the picture windows is relaxing. We welcomed in 2018 relaxed and cosy, sipping champers, what more could you want?"

"My daughter and I wanted to spend some quality time together on a relaxing break in the countryside over Christmas. Our wish was granted when we found the hidden gem that is Windy Hall, which definitely has the 'Wow Factor' David and Sandra have created this beautiful accommodation which is finished to a very high standard. Every detail has been carefully thought out to create every home comfort you would need for a relaxing, cosy and self-catering get away, or should I say "hide away" due to its remote but stunning location and breath taking views. As it was Christmas, we were unsure as to whether to take a few decorations but needn't have worried as the house had been tastefully trimmed up and a Christmas tree stood resplendent in the (URL HIDDEN) thoughtful and this kind gesture truly reflects the hosts David and Sandra. We were also kindly invited into their home on Christmas Day to share a drink with their family. Our stay at Windy Hall was perfect! We felt so relaxed and at home that we were reluctant to leave, and fortunately, there was no rush to check out. We would have stayed longer, but sadly, more guests were arriving for the New Year.....lucky them! Don't just look, book and enjoy a wonderful stay at Windy Hall as we did"

"Fantastic in every way. Windy Hall exceeded expeditions, such a unique place for a very relaxing break away. Beautiful countryside. The views from the drawing room and front bedroom will be very hard to beat. Windy Hall is amazing with very good quality furnishings. As for the bathroom, if you love a bath you really are in for a treat. It’s such a comfortable cosy house, the hens, cat and dog also make it feel like home from home. Discovering each room really was exciting. I can not recommend highly enough."
