    • “We found Corbridge an excellent place to stay as it has a number of pubs and good restaurants. The Old Exchange is well situated in the centre of the town and we found it in very good condition. Every bedroom has its own bathroom and I would definitely use the property again if staying in the area.”

The Old Exchange is right in the middle of it. Extremely comfortable, very well furnished, 3 ensuite bedrooms, separate utility room and with parking for 3 cars.”

    • “Meticulously Clean & Characterful Apartment, centrally located in this delightful village. We stayed 3 nights as a family (3 adult couples), during our trip to Northumberland. The Apartment is tastefully furnished, with a high spec including lovely quality bedlinen & towels, welcome after a long trek along Hadrians Wall (approx 20 mins drive to Once Brewed Visitors centre where we parked & did circular walk along this superb section of wall). We particulary liked the 3 large ensuite bedrooms & wonderfully spacious Lounge, accommodating us all comfortably. John the owner whom we met on our arrival, made us feel welcome & briefed us on the accommodation & nearby places of interest & eateries. Corbridge is a lovely historic village with lots of quaint shops, good restaurants & 4 pubs, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definately return in future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”

    • “its unique selling point is the fact that each of the 3 bedrooms is en suite . furthermore it has its own off road parking right in the centre of corbridge where most street parking is metered. ideally positioned, most restaurants and the coop supermarket are close by. An owner who was welcoming without being intrusive and immediately replaced without charge the glass i broke. the property is well maintained and well supplied. Sheets, towels etc are by Christy A degree in technology is however required to operate the washer! dryer!!”

    • “The caring and friendly,informative attention from the owner was excellent. We immediately felt at home in this property,the three en-suites particularly useful! Superb location for local transport [Buses from the door and regular train services to Newcastle and Carlisle.]Only a short journey from the village is the Corbridge Roman Town...well worth a visit. Also within easy reach are many National Trust,English Heritage properties and of course ,the beautiful Northumbrian coast. Hidden gems in the village from bijou boutiques,gift shops,an antiques centre and endless choices of places to eat...from the local pub to award winning international restaurants. This property is great value for money and when time permits we hope to return!”

    • “We were a party of three couples, The property offered excellent standard of furnishing and fittings. The sitting room and bedrooms were spacious , The owner of the property came around one evening to ensure we were happy with the property, He was friendly and informative about the village and surrounding area. Plenty of hot water which is appreciated when six people want to use the showers at the same time. Parking for three cars at the rear of the property The only problem was that one week it not long enough in this beautiful area.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Our recent stay in The Old Exchange in Corbridge was a first class experience from the very first moment. Situated above an art gallery in the heart of the small and very picturesque town of Corbridge, this apartment was furnished to a very high degree throughout. We had a choice of any one of three beautifully furnished en-suite bedrooms and both of us being keen cooks we found the kitchen contained everything we would need during our stay. The welcoming owner not only gave us exceptionally concise directions as to ease our finding both apartment and parking space but in addition, having known that we were staying especially for our 25th wedding anniversary, had left a selection of goodies for us along with a most unexpected bottle of rather good bubbly! In addition he called us to arrange a quick courtesy visit during our holiday both to meet us and to check that we were content with the apartment. Indeed we were. We would heartily recommend both this apartment and the town of Corbridge to anyone looking for quality accommodation with excellent facilites close at hand.”

It certainly hit the mark and is as good as, if not better than a lot of other properties I've stayed at.

About the location


Hexham 3 miles; Newcastle 16 miles.

A delightful historic village surrounded by beautiful unspoilt Northumbrian countryside, Corbridge offers much of interest, including specialist shops, old inns and a 12th century bridge spanning the river. Hadrian’s Wall and Housesteads Fort are nearby, whilst the market town of Hexham is a few miles away and is well worth a visit, with its narrow bustling streets, good selection of shops and a fascinating abbey boasting 15th century paintings and a fine Saxon crypt. The Border Country, Northumbrian coast, Kielder Forest with cycling and watersports, Beamish Open Air Museum and Durham Cathedral are all within easy motoring distance, while the Gateshead Metro Centre (one of the largest shopping centres in Europe) can be found 20 miles to the east. Excellent golf and fly and coarse fishing are also available locally.
