    • “We stayed at Houghton North Farm Cottage while we were visiting my parents and family. We wanted somewhere we could hold a first birthday party for our son, so we needed somewhere with enough space. The cottage was very well apointed, and looked like it had been decorated/renovated quite recently. The huge sliding door in the kitchen (more of a moveable glass wall really!) was impressive, and both bathrooms were beautifully finished. We were impressed by the lovely solid wood furniture in the cottage, which seemed to be of a high standard. We had enough space to accomodate about 15 family members for the birthday party. The cottage is on a working farm, and the owners were friendly and pleasant when we arrived. Once we were booked in, they pretty much left us alone to get on with it, which suited us perfectly. The location suited us perfectly - close enough to Newcastle to be convenient for visiting family, but far enough out to feel more peaceful. It would be a nice base from which to visit places in the Tyne valley and along Hadrian's Wall. The only slight negative I can think of is a lack of outdoor space. There's a small concrete "yard" just outside the kitchen, but no grass area or garden. It wasn't a problem for us at all, but some people may miss having somewhere nicer to sit outdoors.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Excellent facilities, and very comfortable. Convenient both for Newcastle, and for Hadrian's Wall. The only one (slight) problem was access - a difficult turn in and out onto a fast road. Mirrors needed? We would certainly stay there again.”

    • “A very relaxed place to stay.”

    • “A wonderfull location to stay for a vacation in one of the best counties in England.My family and myself felt so relaxed during our stay in this well provided cottage.We stayed for one week in September 2012 and again in January 2013.The owners are so helpful and Paula makes sure that you enjoy your stay.Being a working farm,you must be perpared to see the odd animal giving you the "nosey" look.Kitchen was very well stocked if you wish to do your own cooking,but with the fine local public houses this was not an option.Strongly recommend.”

    Mrs Timson, Wigston, July 2014

    • “The cottage was so stylish yet comfortable. Every need was catered for. The owner was so very helpful. The situation was ideal for touring by car, but well placed also, being on the bus route and within walking distance of shops. We found the cottage such a great place to relax in and can highly recommend it. This is the 19th year we four friends have holidayed together and the joint opinion was Houghton North Farm Cottage was the best yet.”

    Mrs Dell, Preston, June 2014

    • “We enjoyed everything from start to finish. The cottage was very comfortable and clean and the owners were friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. They were very informative about the area, where to go and what to do. The cottage is in a good position to explore the surrounding attractions and is the best one we have stayed in in the last six years. Thank you.”

About the location


Wylam 2 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 8 miles; Corbridge 10 miles.

Heddon-on-the-Wall, situated north of the River Tyne, sits, as the name suggests, on the line of the old Hadrian’s Wall, and there is a section still visible at the edge of the village. Once the centre for quarrying and coal mining, this lovely village is now surrounded by farms and open countryside and is located on the side of the old “Military Road” which once formed part of the main road from Newcastle to Carlisle. Just along the road is the village of Wylam, the birthplace of George Stephenson, one of the early pioneers of the railway industry, and also the lovely town of Corbridge, which was a traditional crossing point over the Tyne and has history dating back to Roman times. Today, the town is noted for its array of small shops. Just a little further on is the Tyne Valley town of Hexham with its Abbey, Old Gaol and old town centre. The vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its many pubs, shops, eateries, museums and other attractions is within driving distance and has something for everyone. Heddon-on-the-Wall is an ideal base for exploring this part of Northumberland.
