    • “Charming and friendly”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed in South tyne Cottage in the Spring. The Cottage was clean and just right. The upstairs bedroom was roomy but the sloping roof over the bath made it impossible to stand up and shower - soon got used to it kneeling down. There is a railway bridge right next door and a train rumbles across ocassionally but that only added charm to the place. The pub next door (I think was called the Boatman or something similar) has an excellent restaurant and atmosphere and the landlady / landlord are very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely walk into Hexham along the Tyne or Hadrians Wall is a short drive away, with Newcastle a bit further but within easy striking distance. We will gladly return one day.”

    • “The cottage was ideal for our purposes, visiting relatives and friends. Being opposite the pub was very convenient for meals. The bathroom is definitely not suitable for tall people but as neither of us is in that category it was OK. Generally, the cottage was beautifully positioned, well equipped and very comfortable.”

    • “We were welcomed by mine host of the Boatside Inn and shown all facilities. We did wonder about noise from the inn, but it was very quiet in the evenings. all locals we met were friendly and forthcoming. Hexham was a joy and we ran out of time before competing our list of things to do! Thoroughly recommended! Gillian and Graeme Douglas”

    Mr D'arcy, Louth, October 2015

    • “The cottage is situated in a beautiful spot, with easy access to many places of interest. It's very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It's one of the best places we have stayed in.”

    Mr Knight, Leominster, July 2015

    • “An excellent place to stay and in a lovely location close to Hadrian's wall and other attractions - a real gem of a property, exactly as described on the website. Food offered in the Boatside Inn was excellent and could have a drink in the evening and walk home!”

    Mrs Plumb, Diss, June 2014

    • “The cottage is in an excellent location for exploring Hadrian's Wall and the great surrounding countryside, with Hexham just two miles away for shopping and coffee shops etc. Whilst the cottage is situated directly behind the Boatman Inn, there was no disturbance at night. The interior of the cottage is excellent, good quality TVs and furnishings. The staff were exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful. The quality of food at the Boatman is also very good, a big advantage with the inn being just a few yards away.”

    Mr Ingram, Brighouse, May 2014

    • “The cottage was lovely and very welcoming after a days walking along Hadrians wall. Very clean and warm and would definitely go back again.”

About the location


Hexham 3 miles.

The rural village of Warden is situated in the heart of the Tyne Valley countryside. It’s a tranquil and traditional place, whose name was taken from the Old English ‘weard dun’ meaning ‘watch hill’ and was originally the site of an Iron Age Hill Fort. Today it is home to an excellent pub/restaurant, The Boatside Inn. It is 3 miles from Hexham, the region’s main market town - a bustling place, full of antique shops and popular with tourists visiting nearby Hadrian’s Wall. Beautiful old Hexham Abbey dates back to the 7th Century and has a superb Saxon crypt, while shoppers flock to colourful stalls in The Shambles in the Market Place on Tuesdays. In the other direction lies Hadrian’s Wall, while further afield are Kielder Water, Alnwick Castle and Garden, and the many unspoilt golden sandy beaches, dunes, quaint fishing villages and historic castles of Northumberland’s Heritage coastline.
