What our guests say


“We had a lovely long weekend at Byrness House with 3 generations getting together. There was plenty of room for everyone, the house was well equipped and comfortable, would definitely book again.”


“Beautifully positioned and ideal for our family reunion. Space to spread out. Lots of lovely touches and owner very helpful.”


“This is a wonderful house in a great location. The house is huge, and great for 2 families, or a group… a great base for exploring Northumberland and the south of Scotland.”


“The house was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm… We enjoyed being able to walk straight out onto the Pennine Way for miles in either direction, and were close enough to be able to day trip to the coast and Hadrian’s wall.”
