We had a great week at Hyem. The cottage was warm comfortable (especially the beds), and great for walks from the door, which is what we did. Also plenty of nice shops in Rothbury, including great bakery and butchers. A lovely cottage to stay for a holiday.
Cottage was warm & cosy. Everything provided for a weeks stay. For us the location although in the heart of Rothbury was not ideal. Parking at times was a nightmare and unloading on arrival was difficult to say the least. If you are thinking of staying in this cottage take a trolley.
This is an excellent property to stay in as a family, couple or on your own. Clean and well maintained, with almost everything you would need for a week's stay without having to bring your own things for the kitchen! The seating area outside is lovely, and people passing by were all friendly. We've stayed in one of the cottages a couple of doors down before, but Hy'em is better for our purposes. It was lovely having a combi boiler for the hot water so we didn't run out or have to have quick showers or baths to make sure there was enough water for everyone. Other positives for us were: powerful hairdryer, large towels (not those silly sized ones you quite often get); log burner (we had to make use of it even though it was July); gas hob (the oven is electric); nearby shops for all food, drink etc; enough space so were weren't under each others feet in the evenings; fast response times for the few queries we had. The only downside for me was not having a tumble dryer, but that is probably just me being picky - there is a washing line to use. We thoroughly recommend this place!
The cottage, is in a quite lane with no car access so is very quite but plenty of parking near by. Very clean and comfortable with all mod cons and if you don't feel like cooking a good choice of pubs and restaurants on your doorstep.
Its difficult to fully explain at how pleased we where with everything provided when staying for a week at Hyem, Rothbury/ Northumberland region and the booking agent - all totally superb. Our over-riding conclusion from the holiday was we definitely need to go back to both Hyem and Rothbury - and also tell as many others of the great accommodation and Northumberland in general.
Hyem proved the perfect accommodation for myself, partner (along with our bikes) and my elderly parents - lovely decor and bedding etc; we enjoyed the stove fire for a cosy feel in the evenings; and sitting out back with views of the church. Its an excellent location in the wonderful village of Rothbury - such a nice place - a perfect tonic for our busy city life - has everything we needed - particularly enjoyed the new Narrow Nick micro brewery pub - having breakfast at Tomlinsons cafe. Also Hyem was very close for walks along the banks of the beautiful River Coquet.
During our visit we managed many day trips: to the impressive Bamborough Castle and across the causeway to historic Lindisfarne (excellent coffee at Pilgrims cafe); Alnwick Castle and gardens; my parents also went to the incredible Cragside (National Trust) and said it was a highlight.
We cooked in Hyem on some nights and also went locally to the Queens Head for classic pub grub. We also ventured a little further out and where impressed with the dining at the Anglers Arms and the great fish restaurant at Amble, the Old Boathouse. A top tip for a lovely cafe is The Running Fox at Felton.
I managed to a couple of excellent road bike rides - so it proved a perfect area for that. And we also walked up The Cheviot - the highest mountain in the Cheviot massif - which proved wonderfully remote and wild wander.
So all in all - top marks for Hyem, the village Rothbury and the Northumberland region which has loads to do for all ages and abilities. We will be back.
