- “Friendly Welcome”
- “We both enjoy holiday cottages and one of the most important aspects we look for when we stay at a cottage is...the feeling of being 'welcomed' to a cottage. Chare Close Cottage owners made us feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble. What impressed us were the small touches ie tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, scones, butter and jam. Some might say so what, but these additions made us feel welcome, and it made all the difference to us. A lot of cottage owners leave nothing, this act makes us feel unwelcome regardless of the accomadation! So our stay is coloured by the lack of welcome. Chare Close was a wonderful stay helped by good weather, and we will go back.”
- “We had a lovely time at Chare Close Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and the owners were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this cottage to future guests.”
- “We liked everything about the cottage.”
- “The cottage is in a perfect location for the area and is very well appointed with all the facilities you need.”
- “This is a wee gem of a cottage - very comfortable, in easy reach of the surrounding area and with good shops nearby. The owners were very helpful and friendly, providing lots of little touches to make the holiday a bit special. Highly recommended.”
- “Lovely friendly host, very comfortable cottage and lovely weather.”
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!
