Guest book 2015

You are the perfect hosts in a perfect location! The sauna and hot tub were incredible and we feel well and truly relaxed. We visited Kielder observatory and although the weather tried ti spoil it we did manage to see a starry sky.

Waking up after the best nights sleep we've had in a long time, to snow capped trees and a light dusting on the ground just added to the magic!

Thank you so much for sharing this magical place with us

K and J, December 2015

Thank you for helping make this return visit to your exquisite wonderland extra special for us! Singdean truly is our favourite space; the tranquil location is just what we needed to relax and unwind (even when there was a proposal being kept secret!)

We highly recommend the Kielder Observatory - if you're fortunate enough to get clear skies what you can observe is truly breathtaking and the staff are so friendly and accommodating and very knowledgable. 

We rounded off our stay with a quiet midnight dip in the hot tub under a sky glittered in stars and a glass of fizz to celebrate tying the knot : ) Thank you for a magical few days.

K and D, November 2015

What an amazing place! We've had a marvellous time at Singdean - from the delicious breakfasts and suppers to the steaming hot tub and the cosy bed - everything has been wonderful. The attention to detail is stunning and we just love the interior design - a perfect blend of Scandi ski chalet and Scottish comfort. Perfect for instagram! Thank you so much for your hospitality - nothing has been too much trouble. We will be back for those stars!

R and J, November 2015

What an amazing place and hosts. never felt so relaxed and de-stressed. Also gave myself (Chris) the ideal setting to propose to my partner Colin under the stars and in the hot tub. And of course he said 'yes'! Once again thank you for an amazing weekend and hospitality. See you soon

C and C, November 2015

As we write, wondering how to sum up such a place, the sun has emerged at the top of the forest canopy as though it has spent all night climbing the trees branch by branch. The whirl of Finch and Tit by our door, so close you can see every colourful feather on their breast. My nose is greeted by the beautiful scent of the Alpine, while the furs and wools embrace us, wrapped in a cacoon of cosy warmth. The beautiful crafted stone walls give us a feel of protection from the cold morning mist that tumbled down the valley while whispering its long history past.

This fairy tale place, coupled with Christa and Del's attentive yet relaxed hosting has made Singdean a perfect choice for the first night of our honeymoon. We thank them so much and look forward to coming back to see how the story continues. Kindest regards and best wishes, 

PS The breakfast was incredible!

D and E, October  2015

Staying at Singdean was every bit as magical and beautiful as we imagined! It is truly wonderful here - thank you so much for your hospitality and amazing breakfasts. We had a brilliant time, especially Radcliffe, and it was the perfect location for us to celebrate our anniversary and get engaged!!

You have also engendered in us a new interest in the Alpine ways : )   Can't wait to come back, thanks for everything.

L and C,  and R, October  2015

Thank you for a wonderful, cosy and relaxing stay in your beautiful place - a perfect way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We felt comfortable and relaxed from the moment we walked in - Singdean is just beautiful; tastefully decorated, smells delicious and every desire and detail catered for. We slept so well, devoured your delicious breakfasts and suppers and looked forward to the warmth of the sauna and hot tub after a day of exploring (even enjoyed the hot tub in a good old Scottish downpour!). As has been said before - you have created something really special here - I only wish every B and B had the knack for hospitality and the attention to detail that you two obviously have!! Kind of want to keep the secret to ourselves - but we will (reluctantly) recommend Singdean to many others and hopefully return ourselves soon!

Thanks and all the best

A and A,  October  2015

Heartbroken to be leaving already, wish we'd booked for a fortnight.  Singdean is an amazing place - stunning but homely, crisp yet cosy, amazing attention to detail but not fussy - Christa and Del, you've done an amazing job.

Alpine Supper was excellent, as were our breakfasts. Lexy our dog loved here walk at 'Hells Hole'. We loved the observatory, even though we didn't see a single star.

Thanks to our hosts for making this the most special stay - so romantic that we both proposed to each at the same time! We'll definitely be back, Singdean holds special memories for us already (as Amy says; we got Sing-gaged!)

The only thing that makes checking out better is my long awaited visit to raid your lovely shop! Thank you.

A and A, and L, October  2015

This is our 2nd time in a year we have stayed here. We  both love it, everything is fab. Thanks so much Christa and Del, you're both great people. We will see you both next year.

D and D, October  2015

Another fantastic visit to Singdean! Exactly as we remembered it - just as warm, cosy and relaxing. Thank you Christa and Del : ) Singdean is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. No wifi and phone reception means peace and quiet is guaranteed! We're already planning our next visit. Thank you again

C and C, October 2015

Well what can we say other than we have had a truly lovely relaxing stay in your lovely B and B. Christa and Del, great hosts. Thank you for your hospitality and warm welcome to us and our dog Finley. Just what the doctor ordered after a few stressful months, no phone, no wifi = no work!! Great!!

Loved the hot tub, just finished off our days perfectly, looking at the night sky followed by a peaceful, comfy nights sleep and very tasty breakfast. Wishing you well for your future plans with B and B.

Would love to tell family and friends about 'Alpine B and B' but like all good things, we want to keep it to ourselves! (we won't do) Well, we're off now to do our final sweep of fab shop!! Thanks again, loved it

S and G, and F, Lancashire, October  2015

Wow! What an amazing place, amazing people, amazing everything! There us nothing we didn't enjoy but the hot tub was our favourite place to relax. Thank you so much Christa and Del, you have created something utterly unique, good luck with future plans for Singdean, we will be back without a doubt.

L and C, and T, September,  2015

Steve (easliy pleased but not easily impressed) says you have created something very special here. And I would completely agree. Thank you also for noticing,  and pandering to,  my tea drinking habits. We've had a wonderful time.

S and D, September,  2015

From the moment we came into the room with its glorious smell and cosy Alpine chalet feel, we knew we were in for a relaxing treat. This was part of our 50th Wedding anniversary celebrations and we couldn't have wished for anything better.

The breakfast were superb and it was really luxurious to wake up to find the meals waiting for us on the table behind the private curtain. The Alpine suppers were just as exceptional - again ready for us when we returned from exploring the spectacular countryside. Christa and Del were perfect hosts and we'll certainly be back!

P and P, Wiltshire,  September,  2015

Another magical return visit to SIngdean. Thanks so much Del and Christa. Everything we love about SIngdean is exactly as we remember and some lovely new things to discover - beautiful throws, hand knitted cushions and some more of your beautiful hand painted furniture! Looking forward to checking up on all our old favourites and seeing whats new next time!

S and K, September,  2015

What can I say that hasn't already been said. What an amazing place. We booked 2 days away, first time away from our 6 month old daughter. It's been a lovely break, love this lovely hideaway. Hot tub and sauna are just perfect, love sitting looking up at the stars and our first night we had two male owls - it was just amazing to hear them. Bed is just out of this world, so comfy, you have such a wonderful place. You are fantastic people, thank you so much. We will be back without a doubt. Thank you : )

N and M, Newcastle,  September,  2015

A lovely birthday surprise for my husband. Had a lovely walk and a relaxing sauna and hot tub followed by a delicious Alpine Sipper. The bed is so comfy we both had 10 hours uninterrupted sleep which has really recharged our batteries. 

It is really the most stunning setting and the suite is so tastefully decorated with every last detail thought of. It even smells divine. We loved waking up to a delicious breakfast laid out for us so well - we really didn't want to leave!! This really is the most romantic, relaxing getaway you could ever imagine, we loved every second of our stay 0 thank you so much.

S and S, London,  September,  2015

Fantastic place, lovely hosts, we are both fully recharged. Thank you so much.

C and D, and B,   September,  2015

Wonderful 5 days at Singdean. We cannot fault anything about our stay here. After 5 days we are still overwhelmed by the attention to detail, wonderful! The Alpine supper is a must!!

Thank you Christa and Del for a perfect holiday and we will hopefully return soon.

S and N, Sheffield,  September,  2015

Bliss! 12 hours at Singdean worth 3 days elsewhere. SO restorative! Many thanks for a brilliant evening.

J and S, Great Malvern, Worcs,  September,  2015

We came across Singdean as an alternative to a destination honeymoon after our wedding on Saturday - and so glad we did! This place is absolute bliss, the hot tub and sauna is a total treat and the morning breakfast was delicious. Every last detail has been thought out and we struggled not to buy up the shop!

Christa and Del are the perfect hosts - nothing is a problem and we had the perfect mini-moon. We will definitely be back for our anniversary. Thanks for a beautiful few days

H and L, Glasgow,  September,  2015

The perfect antidote to a few very stressful weeks! We now feel completely chilled and ready to face whatever the builders throw at us!! Christa and Del have got it just right and we will definitely be back to experience their warm hospitality and unique property. Many thanks for a lovely weekend.

M and J,  Northumberland, August 2015

What an amazing peaceful place. the scenery, the wildlife are spectacular. The accommodation first class comfy and cosy. The sauna and hot tub Dab. Last, but by no means least, Christa and Del friendly happy people who cannot do enough for you. This has made out honeymoon so special and memorable. We will see you in February (and hopefully lots of snow). Thank you for making these few days away one of the most amazing experiences ever. Lots of love,

A and C,  South Shields, August 2015

Beautiful and magical all round experience. This place did not disappoint! Fantastic hosts, so welcoming and just such lovely people! We loved our beautiful, cosy room, absolutely love the attention to detail, everything has been so well thought out, love every quirk and felt like being at home. Surroundings are what really made it for us having planned this for 6 months, choosing the beautiful night sky of stars and Milkyway we finally got to see what we wanted! Took the photographs we wanted - we shall be sending these over to you : ) Looking to shop now!

Thank you for everything you've done for us, amazing breakfast too and lovely to see the birds so close to the bedroom. Lots of love and all the best for your future, see you again soon!

L and P,  Seaford, South Coast, August 2015

Simply the most amazing place we have ever stayed. Thank you for making my husbands 30th birthday so special and relaxing. The room is just perfect, the little touches everywhere that make the experience out of this world. The hot tub and sauna are lovely, thank you for checking the temperature to make sure the bump didn't overheat!

Being able to look out of the window and see all the birds was so wonderful. We will definitely be back and will tell anyone who will listen about this spectacular place.

S and A + Baby Bump,  Sunderland, August 2015

Complete peace and quiet. Baby siskins and a fat mouse on the feeders to amuse us. A sauna and hot tub to relax in. Wonderful platters of food to enjoy. Del and Christa to look after us. What more could anyone ask for! (oh - nearly forgot - shopping too!) Thank you

E and C, August 2015

Perfection! Thank you for providing us with the most wonderful end to our otherwise less than luxurious bike tour to Aviemore! You are perfectionists and the result is nothing short of first class in every way. Needless to say, the sauna and hot tub were wonderful, but the food was even better and so, so, welcome!

Wishing you the best for the future - you deserve it.

B and E, Lincolnshire, August 2015

Last here in February and loved it so much we immediately booked again for birthday and anniversary. Singdean is the perfect retreat to escape from reality - absolute heaven. We both love all the quirky accessories in the room and the shop. breakfast is amazing with a fresh wide range of various foods. the bed is like sleeping on  clouds - best sleeps we have ever had. The wildlife,  grounds and views are breathtaking. Hot tub and sauna are a must!

Nothing is too much trouble for Christa and Del, a lovely couple who are devoted on giving every guest a memorable experience. Raved so much about it my sister, husband and dog have also booked later in the month.

Thank you to you both - will be back

Gand M, Houston, August 2015

Singdean! WOW!! What a beautiful place. A wonderful warm welcome by Christa and Del. Fantastic hosts throughout our stay.

The room, the grounds, the sauna and hot tub, just perfect. Oh! The breakfast, to die for. we've never had such a various assortment of foods FANTASTIC! What an effort.

Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful. we can't wait to get home to boast about Singdean to our friends and facebookers.

We shall return!

B and L, Oldhamstocks, July 2015

Thank you Christa and Del for a wonderful stay. We loved the cosy room with the sheepskin and the softest ever duvets...and we certainly needed it given the weather.

It is such a unique place - we really had fun heading out to the sauna and hot tub each evening! Your breakfasts were also amazing and we liked the early morning coffee delivery too!

We would live to return when there are clear skies and will definitely be recommending Singdean to others. Thank you again for your hospitality and advice on the local area.

C and M, London, July 2015

What can we say that hasn't already been said? Thoroughly enjoyable stay, can't fault a thing. Your attention to detail is second to none and you are fabulous and friendly hosts. the room and grounds are amazing and the food is out of this world (we highly recommend the Alpine Supper!!) We cannot wait to return!

K and S, Cramlington, July 2015

Christa and Del - we've been 'Singdeaned' on so many levels! What can we say that hasn't already been said? Except it is a rare thing to discover a place to stay so filled with quality, love and humility for total strangers; strangers who will inevitable leave a wee part of their heart and soul here or take a bit of 'Singdeaned' treatment back in our minds as we sit in our busy worlds and lives in front of our computer screens or collegues. We know there will be many such occasions in our moments dreaming of Singdean.

Thank you for extra special everything (including the ball throwing for Brillo!)

R and R, and B,  Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, July 2015

Many congratulations on creating such an enchanting space and providing such warm hospitality. Good luck with all your further endeavours : )

(Justice for the 96)

M and S, Liverpool, July 2015

Dear Christa and Del. What can we say that hasn't already been said? This place you have here is gorgeous. We have enjoyed the peace and tranquility, wonderful walks in the Forest where we didn't see another soul, watching the wildlife - particularly the aerial displays of the housemartins, wallowing in the hot tub during a cool eveing rain shower and a fabuous thunderstorm on the way back from Kielder Observatory on wednesday evening! Also you wonderful hospitality and substantial breakfasts!

We'd love to return - maybe next time in the Autumn / Winter for the dark skies. Many thanks.

P and S, Sleaford, Lincolnshire, July 2015

Our 2nd visit to Singdean, this time Midsummer. Previously, our November stay was the perfect antidote for insomnia. This time, the perfect antidote for the Hadrions Wall half marathon and the half marathon support crew. Hot tub and sauna, Alpine supper (absolutely delicious) and ill ill effects whatsoever from all that running and cheering! Fatlips castle - wow - when can you open the door to a castle and have it all to yourselves? More lovely local produce from Born in the Borders. Christa and Del, thank you again for your suggestions and directions! 

And yes, the Singdean garden in the sun is glorious - here in the heatwave! We didn't finish exploring the garden, spot a deer or see dark skies in Kielders telescopes  (all reasons to return stated in November 2014) but we did experience full moon in skies which never really darkened, spotted a bird of prey on our 1st hot tub night (maybe the Red Kite?) and took out time at SIngdean this time just relaxing and laying in and enjoying the wonderful surroundings.

As before, as soon as we walked in to the thick stone walls of the 700 year old home we were instantly relaxed. Oh yes, and the crazy housemartins very busy flying in and out of the eaves feeding the baby housemartins.

Christa and Del, our stay was exemplary, wonderful, thank you so much, we are enchanted and hope the fairytale continues... We hope to come back again.

N and D, Hove, East Sussex, July, 2015

The accommodation has been very comfortable and after a very long drive and day it was great to come to such an amazing place with such stunning interiors. The attention to detail is worth mentioning!!  Although we were here only for a day - it was a beautiful evening and stay. Christa and Del - thank you for the great breakfast and the warm welcome. Also thank you for accommodating the dogs. We will let our friends and family know!

S and C, June 2015

Where can I start?....As soon as we arrived we were welcomed be warm friendly smiley faces...The door opened to the 'lodge' WOW! I feel the need to go home and re-decorate everywhere! The lovely clean outdoors smell, all the fabulous details 5 star plus!! 

The outdoor hot tub and sauna are amazing, such a relaxing experience. The fairy lights make a magical touch and the outdoor setting in the hot tub is breath taking. 
Perfect nights sleep and what an amazing breakfast, every last detail in Singdean - so much thought, so perfect.

Thank you so much for such a perfect relaxing romantic stay, so many nice words to say. We will be back!

K and L, Northumberland, June 2015

Thank you Christa and Del! We had a truly gorgeous stay at your peaceful lodge in the Borders. The attention to detail is simply wonderful, the smells of the oils and beautiful lotions down to the perfectly laundered towels and bedding - everything was just perfect.

We adored the hot tub - could have stayed in there all night next to the twinkling fairy lights, birds and gorgeous views. The bed is so comfortable, the furnishings and fabulous smells are just wonderful.

Apologies for being awkward in not telling you until today about being veggies! breakfast was still fabulous! Thank you for welcoming us into your home - we will be telling our friends and will certainly be back!

P and D, Gateshead, June 2015

Thank you Del and Christa for a truly unforgettable and relaxing getaway! A truly unique location on the edge of a pine forest. We enjoyed listening to the owls talking to each other. don't think we've ever seen such a clear and bright moon...Although being June we had to stay up very late to wait for the dark skies!

Would definitely recommend the bird of prey centre at Kielder, where being a weekday it was very quiet, so we got to fly a lot of wonderful birds! Everything has made us feel incredibly welcome and relaxed and the attention to detail and service here is excellent. if we can ever get childcare again, we'll be back!

K and L, Sheffield, June 2015

Such a great place to relax!! We stayed for our 3rd wedding anniversary and we will definitely be back. the room is fantastically decorated, the only problem being the wife is leaving with lots of ideas for me to do when we get home. the sauna and hot tub were amazing and just what the doctor ordered.

J and M, and O, May 2015

I'm just going to repeat everything that's already been said! Beautiful place, inside and out. Fantastic hot tub and sauna with the most beautiful views. Fabulous supper and breakfast. And to top it all, lovely hospitality. Thank you so much Christa and Del....we are planning to come back for a birthday treat in November. Can't wait!

A and T,   May 2015

What a perfect haven SIngdean is! The warm welcome from Christa and Del makes you feel special. So welcoming of our scaredy dog Bertie, he was able to relax walking round the grounds. Love the hot tub and sauna. The attention to detail is superb and the room is so cosy and lovely. Really enjoyed our stay although too brief. Hope to be back. PS Lovely breakfast too! And loved watching the house martins swooping around!

P and T,   May 2015

Christa and Del, what lovely people you are, nothing is a bother to you. Thank you for your warm welcome into your house (B and B). Your shop as fab, love the smells of oils. Thanks for the cups of tea and coffee and biscuits / cakes, you're very kind. It was so nice to get away from the daily rat race and just relax. The hot tub and sauna us a great way to de-stress, we thought it was fab. The alpine lodge is simply gorgeous! Breakfast was so nice. We will be back to stay in the near future, thanks again.

D and D,  Jedburgh,  May 2015

What's not to like? Fantastic place, fantastic people, fantastic place,fantastic food. It's amazing how accepting of dogs this place is. It made a huge difference to the enjoyment of our time here. Many thanks to Christa and Del.

S and K,  B and M,  May 2015

What can we say that hasn't already been said! Absolutely amazing from arrival, room was so comfy and homey. Christa and Del, 2 of the nicest and welcoming people you could meet, sauna and hot tub were lovely even though it was pouring down. Alpine supper and breakfast were awesome. And even better we got to come to such an amazing place and bring Button our dog / child! Who loved the walks and watching the birds out of the window. The only downside wis having to leave. We will no doubt be back, thanks so much. PS It's amazing having no phone reception, we actually had to talk to each other! x

E and M, and B,   May 2015

What a wonderful gift and surprise my cousin Janice gave to me and husband Andy. Torrential rain but that didn't spoil our enjoyment at this wonderful place called Singdean. Christa and Del, what can I say - a wonderful couple who made our stay magical, nothing too much trouble. Love what they have done and are in the process of doing to Singdean. The boutique - I would say to any visitors have a look around, I bet you find something you will love and want to buy either for yourself or a loved one - we did. Wildlife and scenery never seen any better, very relaxing, going home relaxed and rejuvenated. Thanks Christa and Del. I will definitely be recommending Singdean.

J and A,   May 2015

Thank you for a perfect lovely stay in a beautiful place. We have enjoyed our stay and you both made us feel so welcome. Relaxing in the sauna and ht tub in the evening was a perfect end to a lovely day. the breakfast is fab and the Alpine supper was delicious - would love to come back and visit soon x. Thank again

K and A,  Ayrshire,  May 2015

Thank you so much for such a wonderful few days at Singdean! We were bought this trip as a Christmas present, having been told just how beautiful a place it is.... and it did not disappoint!

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel right at home. Del and Christa, you are the perfect hosts and we wish you many more successful years here. We will be back!

The hot tub and sauna was the most incredible experience, followed by the Alpine Supper...WOW!! I would recommend Singdean to anyone wishing to completely destress! Thank you both

K and A,  Newcastle upon Tyne,  May 2015

Thank you so much for your warm and generous hospitality, looking after human and furies alike! Singdean is a wonderful, special place and I hope that we'll return. Sad to leave, but feeling reinvigorated and ready to face the world once more!

S and J,  C and M,  May 2015

We have had a fantastic two night stay. From the moment we arrived, Christa and Del made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them.  The lodge is so cosy, beautifully furnished and every little detail considered. Relaxing in the sauna and hot tub surrounded by nature was the perfect end to our day. breakfast was delicious! We had to have two sittings to make the most of all the yummy food! We are already planning our next trip. Thank you so much Christa and Del.

C and C,  London and North Shields,  April 2015

Such an amazing and relaxing place to stay. it was our wedding anniversary and was also a Christmas present from bother-in-law, all I can say is 'WOW'!! The best Christmas gift in the history of Christmas gifts.

We were made to feel so relaxed and welcome in your home. Where to start....well the accommodation  is outstanding, the feeling of being in an Alpine lodge is captured perfectly. Now the sauna and hot tub is truly an experience to die for, the fairy lights and the scenery...AMAZING. As for the outstanding breakfast, such a delight to have it all prepared and brought to the room...WOW again.

We are so de-stressed and relaxed that another visit is definitely on the cards, thank you, thank you x

D and T,  Glasgow,  April 2015

A truly amazing place. At every corner we turned we both said 'wow'. Thank you for being great hosts and sharing your home. We will definitely be sharing this experience with our friends and family. Hope to return again soon.

D and K,  April 2015

You are so lucky to live in such a magical place. Thank you for sharing it with us!! What can I say - perfect hosts, perfect everything. Bloody Marvellous!! PS We will be back if you have us again xx

S and S, Gateshead, April 2015

Wow - what can we say about Singdean?! First of all it's the most ideal place to stay for a mini-moon. We needed to relax after our wedding on Saturday and that's just what we were able to do! The breakfast was fab with lots of choice, what was also fab was that you didn't have to get ready before having breakfast like most other B and B's. You could just enjoy it in your PJ's and relax.

The interior of the room is fantastic with amazing attention to detail, whilst feeling cosy and comfortable. It was great to be staying in the middle of nowhere and to hear the wildlife outside, as it was so peaceful! The hot tub and sauna were wonderful after having wedding shoes on for 14 hours, the hot tub was the perfect way to take away any pain. The first night we used the hot tub, we saw an incredible night sky full of such clear visable stars - amazing!!

We recommend the 'Clock Tower Bistro' in Jedburgh 30 mins drive away for delicious food.

We would also like to thank Christa and Del for their welcome and hospitality : ) We will be recommending Singdean to all of our friends and will hopefully be back again in the future.

H and I, Leeds, April 2015

We have had an amazing time celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary! Thank you for making our stay so special : )

F and D,  April 2015

Thank you for such an amazing place and everything that is magical about it. You made our stay SO sprecial in every way and we can't wait to see you again.

C and S,   April 2015

Thank you for making our magical mini honeymoon stay just that! Fantastic hospitality, amazing surrounds and the room  itself is just a little slice of perfection!! All of which was just made more perfect by the sauna, hot tub and food. We will most definitely be back!

K and A,  April 2015

Thank you so much for making our 'mini moon' so magical. We had such a relaxing time after the crazy week we have had and I could not be happier that I had this little surprise booked. The decoration, setting, sights, smells - the food! Everything had been beautiful. we will not hesitate to recommend this hidden gem to everyone we know! Boulmer has loved his stay too, he doesn't want to leave. Thank you again - we will be back!

S and L, and B,   April 2015

Arrived with the snow falling late afternoon on a Monday - almost as though the weather had been arranged by special request! We spend a magical 3 nights and left mid morning on a Thursday....

Turning the clock back in time to a place when we lived off the land and let nature decide. There are those pioneering spirits that lead the way and take another path, they choose a path that others fear to tread because in part they have lost their way. A way to return to ways of old is to immerse oneself into the Alpine lifestyle of Singdean, be sparing of water and not waste it, be sparing with electricity and don't abuse it with over-use, live by and in nature by having wood a renewable source to provide heat for warm, bathing, hot-tub and sauaering. The wood holds the oil that provides the alpine fragrance that fills the air in the room and the pine cones that keep the bathroom smelling of pine fresh too. Letting the natural solar light help to charge the batteries that power Singdean is another way we let nature provide for us as well as the morning and evening song the birds bring during our stay. Thank you Christa and Del, Milka and Alpi for your generous warm welcome and happy way during our stay. The way of living you choose is an inspired way to live, living in the nature every day. Thank you for your pioneering spirit and grit to show us all that there really is another way. Love and stuff,

S and I, and L  March / April 2015

We were hoping that our expectations of Singdean weren't too high as we have both been looking forward to our stay for months.....but our expectations were exceeded! What you can't capture on the internet site is the amazing peacefulness, the bird song, the clearest of night skies and the gorgeous sauna smell! The room is so cosy and beautifully done - love the JR Tolkien map on bathroom wall! Breakfast was so lovely and hosts (plus their pooches!) were lovely too!! We are already planning our second visit and when the hustle and bustle of life gets too much we can picture sitting in the hot tub and chilling out! See you soon little chaffinch!

S and P, March 2015

PERFECTION! Everything from the welcome coffee and flapjack, the wine cooler for our champagne, the walk we took on your land, the hot tub under the clearest of skies (saw 3 shooting stars!), the cosiness of the room and the amazing breakfast : ) We will definitely be back!!

D and J, March 2015

Thank you for a perfect lovely stay. Loved every minute, the place makes you very relaxed (and lazy). You are very clever with your design ideas. can't wait to come back. Breakfast fab, Mark thought he had to eat it all (and he did!). Hot tub, sauna and beer great

M and T, and L, March 2015

Lucky us! Here we are back again at Singdean. Wonderful to be here. Don't want to leave. So looking forward to our next visit - already booked! Thank you so much Christa and Del

S and K, March 2015

2pm onwards......a tidal wave of loveliness. Thank you very much Christa and Del. We will be back

A and M, March 2015

This weekend away was a special one for us, combining 30th birthday and 5th wedding anniversary celebrations. I have to say we couldn't have picked a more perfect place for it. So romantic and peaceful, it's like another world! You have been so welcoming and kind, that the whole weekend has been superbly relaxed. The room is beautiful, with all the little touches, I love all the fabrics and all the lovely smelly things!

The highlight of my weekend has to be sitting in the hot tub, looking at that view, the stars twinkling, and no sound other than a hooting owl - pure bliss! If I could, I'd spend the whole Winter hibernating here! We will be back.

K and M, February 2015

So beautiful, couldn't fault this place in any way. Would highly recommend, so peaceful and relaxing. Breakfast was AMAZING! Lovely welcoming couple. Will be looking forward to returning and exploring the outdoors. Thank you so much.

S and F, February 2015

What a beautiful place! We're absolutely gutted we have to go but we will be back! All the little touches made our stay even more special - thank you so much. Breakfast was out of this world. Many thanks again and again.

P and  A, February 2015

What an amazing retreat this is! Absolutely beautiful settings and lodge and facilities you have. From the minute we arrived you have went out of your way to make this night away the most relaxing time. Breakfast was beautiful and we're gutted not to be staying another night!! Thank you, we will be back! xx

K and H, February 2015

Thank you so much for such a lovely stay. You gave us the warmest of welcomes and went out of your way to make our stay special. The Alpine lodge is simply gorgeous! Your attention to detail is second to none and I particularly love all the different textures, stag horns and cosy blankets. The sauna and hot tub were amazing. it was so relaxing and on the romantic stakes, I don;t think you get better than that! You are very lucky to call this home but you can tell straight away how much time and effort you have put into making it perfect. We will be sharing our Singdean experience with our family and friends.

Wow! What an amazing place, like nothing we've every stayed in before. From the friendly warm welcome from the lovely Christa and Del to our final night here, everything has been more than perfect. We were recommended Singdean by friends and it has not disappointed.

Fabulous first night watching the stars from the hot tub surrounded by snowy fields and trees. Then the nice! Filled us up nicely. We would recommend couples do the big loop walk up into the hills and back down. Greta views and so peaceful. Staying here has certainly helped the blow of turning 30! We are definitely coming back. Would love to see it in the Summer. Thank you very much

Lovely quirky Alpine chalet - different, cosy, comfy and a warm friendly welcome from the hosts, Christa and Del. Fantastic that they have followed their dream and were brave enough to realise it. Loved the scented candles, sweeties, beers and flapjacks. Breakfast was different too, good selection of breads and nice soft boiled eggs.

Fatlips Folly was worth a visit. Wonderful views from the top and a mossy quiet climb up. We enjoyed an evening of star gazing at Kielder Observatory. Wonderful! You need to book. For old fashioned Scottish tearoom 'The Picked orange' in Hawick was very reasonable, good sones and sandwiches. Thank you for a great stay!

From the very beginning that was an amazing experience - the voucher you sent me was a really nice touch and we loved the idea of a weekend away in Scotland. The attention to detail and interior of the suite are amazing. Welcome drinks were a great idea and good start for the holiday. We loved the sauna and hot tub, to sit out in a frost and relax.

Breakfast- even when fast asleep, amazing smell of toast were making me to get up and enjoy variety of choice. Thank you.

The Alpine shop is amazing -  we are happy to find vintage German wine glasses - good find and we will remember Singdean with every sip of wine.

We really liked coming back to the room, scent, candles, all little details were as before. And especially for you Christa and Del, thank you for being such a lovely hosts. We will definitely recommend the place and maybe even we will be back : )

After hearing through friends at work about this B and B and how fantastic it was, I found an excuse to come for a birthday treat. It was better than the pictures! Comfortable, very homey, quirky, everywhere you look you notice some other decorations.

Christa and Del are very welcoming friendly and fantastic hosts. The sauna and hot tub by moonlight in the snow just finished off our little break perfectly.

Thank you again Christa and Del for making our tea because of the snowfall, it was delicious! And finally the breakfast was yummy and very filling, lots of choice.

We love how unique this place is and you've made your dream come true. All the best for future work, we will defo be back

What a fantastic stay we have both had. Such a lovely location, very welcoming and great hosts. We look forward to returning in the Summer months. Many thanks for a great stay, keep up the good work

A and C, Cheshire, January 2015

Wow! What an amazing place. We love it! Our stay as a birthday gift from our son and daughter-in-law, who also stayed here. We can certainly see why they choose Singdean. we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Christa and Del, you have made us very welcome, thank you.

We loved the quirkiness, what an awful lot of thought has gone into this fabulous B and B. It's beautiful, a one off. A wonderful place to stay in any season. I'd love to visit again in the Summer, sitting in the garden on a warm evening, just bliss. Hot tub and sauna was a lovely experience. Thak you too for a wonderful breakfast, also your hospitality. See you again, thank you Christa and Del

A and T, Northumberland, January 2015

So glad you followed your dreams and created something so special that we can share, because we can all talk the talk but to do it is brave. This experience has been fantastic from start to finish and it is all down to you Del and Christa. Will be back, fabulous stay.

P and V, North Yorkshire, January 2015

We came to Kielder to visit the observatory (which we are doing tonight!) but our stay at Singdean alone has made our 12 hour round trip well worth while! The sauna and hot tub are amazing and really relaxed us after our journey up. Christa and Del are a super friendly couple who made our stay very special. I even forgot to mention that we are vegetarians and they still provided us with a delicious breakfast. Can't sing their praises enough. Will be back!
