    • “Two pointers and i stayed at Curlew Cottage for a week. The weather was mixed but the walking is terrific. Hadrians wall is now a favourite. The cottage is really comfortable. Great shower for after the walks comfy bed. The cottage reminded me of times past at home with horses and dogs around. A warm welcome with fresh flowers. Watch where you park as it is the birds fly through and bomb the car. If you want a quiet time then you will enjoy this.”

    • “We all loved this cottage! In general it was a lovely relaxing holiday and the owners were lovely and very helpful. It was remote and had a huge field attached to the cottage where the dogs could run. I would definitely recommend this property to people looking for a peaceful break. We would definitely book Curlew Cottage again.”

    • “A warm welcome and great location, it was peaceful and very comfortable.”

    Mrs Bulcock, Colne, July 2014

    • “The situation of Curlew Cottage is one of the finest we have ever enjoyed during a short break. Utter peace and quiet, the sound broken only by the cry of curlews (yes, they really are there) and the occasional sheep. The view from the main bedroom window is superb. Northumberland is a county of great beauty and variety, still comparatively unknown (thank goodness!) and it is some years since we have been there. I was able to combine a speaking engagement at nearby Langley Castle with a wonderful short holiday.”

About the location


Hexham 8 miles; Haltwhistle 8 miles.

The attractive village of Haydon Bridge is situated between the market town of Hexham and Haltwhistle, close to the A69, on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, and only a short drive away from the magnificent remains of the Roman Forts on Hadrians Wall, a World Heritage Site. There are some delightful walks in the area, but perhaps the loveliest are at Allen Banks - 194 acres of woodland and riverside paths just 3 miles from Haydon Bridge. The picturesque village of Haydon Bridge dates back to the 14th Century and is situated on both banks of the South Tyne river with an ancient pedestrian bridge over. Amenities in the village include a railway station, a variety of shops, pubs, a local tourist information centre, churches and riverside walks. Haydon Bridge is a great base for exploring Northumbria!
