A charming character cottage circa 1750s, offering superb upside down accommodation, in the small market town of Haltwhistle, which offers excellent local shops and a real ale pub.
The scenic Haltwhistle Burn gorge, which leads up to the Roman wall (2 miles away), is just a 3 minute walk from the cottage.
The property has been sympathetically modernised to an extremely high standard, and includes a spacious first floor sitting room with dining area, two comfortable ground floor bedrooms and a sun-trap patio overlooking the owner's walled garden.
An ideal base from which to explore Hadrian's Wall, the North Pennines and Hexham, whilst Kielder Water, Alnwick Castle and the Northumberland coast are further away.
Haltwhistle is also within easy reach of Carlisle, the Lake District and Dumfries and Galloway.
A fabulous property for a relaxing and varied break at any time of year!
Two ground floor bedrooms: 1 x king-size double, 1 x twin. Mezzanine level bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Mezzanine level fitted kitchen leading to sheltered patio. Delightful, spacious first floor sitting room with sofa bed, dining area and coal-effect electric stove.
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!
