About the location

Heddon-on-the-wall

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.

Houghton North Farm Cottage is very accessible, clean, tidy and a home from home. A very nice holiday.

Mr Charlton, Gillingham, September 2013

The location was ideal, easy access to the main road and about 10 minutes from A1, which meant there were many places to visit within a relatively short drive (Beamish, Durham, Alnwick, Morpeth etc). Nice views from the cottage. Comfortable beds. The log burning stove was a lovely feature, and made the lounge very cosy in the evenings. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Mr Courts, Rayleigh, August 2013

Enjoyed everything! From the location to the suitability of the accommodation and the owners being so helpful and friendly. Loved the peace and quiet, coupled with the weather. Couldn't have asked for more.

Miss Doran, Spalding, July 2013

The quality of the property far exceeded our expectations. The decor was generally finished to a high standard and the furnishings were of a high quality.

Mr Heslop, Reading, May 2013
