A cosy 19th century end-terrace cottage, set in a rural position on the outskirts of the popular market town of Haltwhistle. Refurbished and decorated to a high standard, the property offers comfortable and well-equipped accommodation, including a fully-fitted kitchen, sitting room with dining area, and a pretty, walled patio garden - perfect for eating alfresco. The surroundings are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the heart of Hadrian's Wall Country, and provide excellent walking and fishing (there is fishing on the North Tyne 2 minutes from the property).

With the amenities of Haltwhistle close by, as well as access to attractions such as Alnwick Castle and the Heritage Coast, this makes a truly great base for a family holiday.

- “Clean, cosy good location accommodation”
- “This is a great little cottage but the second bedroom is very small. It is a bunk bed which is comfortable and big enough for adults but it swamps the room and there is very very little storage space. It would be fine for a family with 2 children but not suitable for 2 couples. It was fine for us, We tossed a coin for who was going to have the bunk room. We were two friends on a walking holiday. Unrelated to the cottage but relevant if you are going for a walking holiday along the wall the AD122 bus now only runs in Northumbria. We ended up with getting Sprouls taxis for the Cumbria bit! Recommend for a couple, but not 2 couples. The bathroom was a bit cold but did pick the coldest week in May to stay.”
- “Compact but comfortable holiday home.”
- “Very compact, not for large families, but very well located. Ideal for exploring the Roman Wall and the spectacular Northumberland scenery.”
- “The area was wonderful and Haltwhistle made an excellent base.”
About the location
Hexham 17 miles.
Known as the 'Centre of Britain', this small market town is a great place from which to explore both Northumberland and Cumbria. Haltwhistle boasts a good range of shops and pubs - one of which, The Black Bull, is a real ale pub serving good food! There is an excellent leisure centre with heated open air swimming pool and cycle hire in the town, with pony trekking nearby. One of the best preserved stretches of Hadrian's Wall is only a mile to the north with various museums, forts and milecastles to be seen. There is even an ongoing 'dig' at the nearby site of Vindolanda. This truly is magnificent walking, riding and cycling country, with the Pennine Way and various bridleways and cycle routes passing rivers, forests, castles and of course, Hadrian's Wall. Visitors will enjoy this location in all weather and all seasons – a regular train and bus service from the town to Newcastle, The Metro Centre and Carlisle, means that you can leave the car behind and enjoy!
