Guest feedback from Brunton House

Jan ’24  We have spent the last 20 years renting large houses all over the UK.  This is the best house we have stayed in by miles and the best location.  It is the only house everyone wants to return to!

Dec ’23  A wonderful family Christmas with 4 generations, from 2 – 89

Nov ’23  Our 4th family get together in this wonderful house, which we all (from age 1 – 75) love.   We can’t wait to return.

Sept ’23  Thank you very much for your thoughtful furnishing of the house and for enabling a fantastic reunion.

July ’23  We’ve had a wonderful time celebrating my 70th birthday.  This place is beautiful – far exceeding expectations.  We would LOVE to return.

June ’23  I last wrote in the visitors’ book in September 2019.  Four years later and we are back!  We loved it for our 47th annual school reunion.  Could we return for our 50th?

May ’23  Had the most fantastic time – some back for the 3rd time.  Can’t praise the accommodation enough.  Every need is catered for.  Thank you so much.

Jan ’23  We have all enjoyed this wonderful house and the surrounding area.  We are so sad to leave because it’s been wonderful bringing in 2023 altogether as a family.

May ’21   A wonderful way to celebrate a 90th birthday.  The perfect house for our family get together.

April ’21  We had a lovely time – the perfect antidote to the pandemic.

Mar ’21   Having just returned from a four-day vacation at Brunton House I would like to share that this is an idyllic holiday place. Not only does the house have a ‘wow’ factor but there is nothing that has not been carefully considered in providing guests the best holiday experience . The small touches: local honey, Northumberland tea, bacon and bread were just a small example. The team looking after the house, including cleaners were super kind and helpful. We will have family memories to treasure from our stay. You made this possible. Thank you to everyone. It was truly wonderful. I wish we could return every year.

Oct ’20  This was one of the best things to come out of 2020!

Feb ’20  Amazing attention to detail.  Kitchen very well provided for and very comfy beds.  A brilliant house for a gathering/celebration.  Thank you all, and Ann, for a lovely welcome.

Jan’20   A superb venue for a shooting party for a few days.  Excellent facilities, warm and welcoming after a day braving the elements.  Thank you Chris and the team for all the care and attention to detail.  Could not have been better.  Will definitely return!

Dec ’19  You have thought of everything.  We all loved our stay here in this brilliant location.  Northumberland never fails.

Nov ’19   If we had to hand draw a house that would be perfect for our family celebration, this would be it!  Beautifully appointed, warm, cosy and inviting.  Perfect in every way.  We all can’t wait to find another excuse to come back.  It’s been a joy.

Our much anticipated second visit to the amazing Brunton House. Fantastic facilities in a wonderful location. A luxurious base to explore the lovely Northumberland countryside.

Sept ’19
Brunton House is an absolutely wonderful place, and was perfect for our 43rd annual school reunion. Started in 1976 we have done this every year and this house and location has proved to be practical, comfortable and uplifting.

Sept ’19
This is the best holiday house we have ever had.

Aug ’19
Leaving here with larder envy, not to mention the luxury of an indoor woodchopping room and wheelbarrow!

Aug ’19
This is one of our favourite places to holiday as a family. Thank you making it so comfortable and welcoming.

July ’19
We have spent a wonderful family holiday week in this beautiful house and garden, with trips to the amazing local sandy beaches. Fourteen of us aged 70 years to 7 months. Beautiful surroundings – short walks for short legs amongst the wild fields with so many butterflies, bees, mice burrows, spiders’ nests and hares.

June ’19
We have met together in many different places over recent years. Brunton House is the bees’ knees and is likely to take the award for ‘the best yet’. The house is equipped with everything you can think of, and much more. This is the first place we have stayed in which has a wine room and a log room. We must return!

May ’19
A great house, including the Stables and Mill Race. A family celebration for 20 of us – ranging from 95 to 3 years old. Thanks to the team at Brunton.

Apr ’19
A great venue for a 40th wedding anniversary surprise party. Lovely house, location and amenities. Another Northumberland hidden gem enjoyed by all of us.

Oct ’17

What a wonderful few days we spent in Brunton House at the end of October. You have thought of everything, the house is just lovely and perfect for a group of three generations plus assorted dogs. Very happy memories of our golden wedding celebration, from arriving to a card and bottle of prosecco, to duets on the piano with Granny, exploring the wonderful area of beaches, castles, boat trips. Whenever I drive north of Newcastle I relax, no crowds, just space. Marvellous. Thank you, we hope to come back.

Sept ‘ 17

We have been so comfortable here – at the very least a ‘home from home’, if not better: extra kitchen, piano, drying room, woodshed, etc etc!

We had been looking for a house with at least 5 double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.
