A lovely comfortable apartment.  Anne and Norman really have thought of everything.  Hope to stay again.  Margaret and Dennis.

Our second stay in the apartment.  Everything as before very comfortable and convenient for days out exploring.  Thank you Anne and Norman for making us feel so welcome.  Hope to return before too long.  Maggie and Derek.

Our third visit and just as special as the previous holidays!  Thank you both so much for your warmth, kindness and hospitality.  We have been blessed with excellent weather.  Yesterday the Dales were breathtakingly beautiful.  Our cameras are exhausted!!  John and Marion.

Thank you Anne and Norman for the warm welcome you showed to us on our arrival – the lovely cup of tea just what we needed after our long journey.  We didn’t spend much time in the apartment as we were catching up with family, friends and the wedding at The Ramside.  Each night we had a comfortable bed to come back to.  Thank you for being so kind – not forgetting to say thank you to your window cleaner for his advice.  Ann and Fred.

Dear Mr. Norman and Mrs. Anne, We enjoyed staying in your flat so much that we didn’t even see the time pass.  That’s what happens when you stay in a very nice and cosy place and have very kind and considerate hosts like you.  We can never be sufficiently grateful for what you did for us.  Thank you.  We wish you the best.  Sidi Ahmed and Radhia (Algeria)

Dear Norman and Anne, thank you for everything! I really enjoyed my stay here!! (There was still more shopping than studying)  Kate (Hong Kong)

Enjoyed our stay, really comfortable and quiet, nice to meet you.  Liked the bus service, not having to use the car, beautiful walks in the area.  Sybil and Dennis.

Norman and Anne are most hospitable.  Nothing too much trouble.  Thank you... Like the area.  People are friendly.  The parks and gardens well tended.  Enjoyed the holiday all round.  David and Carol.

Our third stay says it all.  Another wonderful stay with lovely hosts.  Thank you Anne and Norman. Best wishes for the future.  Robin and John (New Zealand)

A lovely location, loved the walks and cycle routes newly discovered!  Happy memories will last forever.  Many thanks.  Alan.

Many thanks for your warm welcome.  The flat is so well cared for and you seem to have thought of everything.  Location is also great.  Many thanks.  Marion.

Thank you so much for your kind hospitality and patience!  Your willingness to answer our questions and to be available were greatly appreciated.  The apartment/flat was perfect.  It was warm and allowed us to find comfort and respite.  Kindest Regards.  Vernon and Aubrey. (USA)

Wonderful, comfortable stay.  We appreciate your generous spirit. Derek & Lenora (Zimbabwe)​

It has been great as always. I love what you have done to the flat as well. Sorry I missed you but maybe another time. Kristina 

The flat was lovely. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Everything I needed was there. Hope to see you again when I move north. Edmund

We had a good week here - restful. We liked the food at Travellers' Rest .... and enjoyed an evening meal at La Spagettata in the City - good value and buzzing atmosphere………….. Chris and Jackie

The accommodation has been comfortable and in a perfect location for visiting friends and family both north and south of the Tyne. Thank you both for your very friendly welcome. John and Dee

Have had a wonderful stay. Couldn't be better. All I was hoping for and more - in accommodation terms. Thank you. Alan
