Accuracy of the listing

  • "A pleasant property in a pretty garden setting."

    The listing described it well. The 3 steps down to the bathroom and dining room were quite steep, could be an issue for someone with mobility problems.

  • "Lovely cottage ideally situated to explore the area."

    Very friendly welcoming neighbours too. Highlight of our trip was the variety of birds visiting the bird feeder in front of the living room window, never seen so many siskins

  • "Excellent base for exploring Hadrian's Wall and local area."

    Very clean and well equipped cottage, which is surprisingly quiet given its proximity to the A69. Access was straightforward and we enjoyed seeing birds on the bird feeders including a siskin. Only minor issue, the 3 steep steps down into the bathroom and also into the dining room were a bit awkward for one of us.

  • "This was our second visit to this lovely cottage."

    As with our previous visit, it was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The owners certainly go the extra mile to make the welcome a warm one, and I'd definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a break in Northumberland.

    Thank you so much. It would be lovely to have you back again. So glad you like it. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage in a beautiful setting, it was walking distance to 2 local pubs that served great food."

    It was a nice touch to find milk in the fridge and tea and coffee available. My dog especially liked the bed that was provided for her, much more than her own we took. We would definitely stay again.

  • "What a great little hideaway in a great location."

    Arrived to find bread, milk and butter waiting for us, we had taken tea and coffee but that was also supplied. The cottage itself was extremely clean, tidy and warm and with toiletries supplied. We took a dog bed and dog towel and these were already there aswell, everything has been thought of in advance. A nice little touch, for me, was a guitar! I had thought about taking mine but hadn't. Through the window you can see a bird feeder which was always surrounded by birds, although there's bird feed in the cupboard to refill that ran out over the three days we were there. The bed is comfortable and there's a toilet and sink in a room attached. We only stayed 3 nights but wish it had been longer as there's so much to see and do near by. Highly recommended by us and our dog

    Thank you so much, glad you enjoyed it! My hubby doesn’t play any more, was a shame to waste the guitar at home not getting used. So pleased! Property Owner

The property

Haltwhistle 2.5 miles.

2 Old Row is a well-presented, terraced cottage situated near the village of Greenhead and the town of Haltwhistle, on the border of Cumbria and close to the Northumberland National Park.

You will find this lovely holiday home just off the A69 running between Carlisle and Newcastle, offering excellent accommodation for couples looking to break away from their routines and relax in a contemporary home.

Let the chef show off their cooking skills in the newly fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, before heading over to the dining room, catching up over a much-needed bottle of wine, you can even use this as a spot to host a games night, with the large selection of games available.

After a day of fell walking, relax in the sitting room complete with homely furnishings throughout, while the sleek shower room offers a stylish spot to prepare for the next day.

Head upstairs to catch your rest in the open plan bedroom, wrapping yourself under the covers before dreaming about the next adventure to come, while the convenience of an en-suite basin and WC is an added bonus, an infant’s cot and baby changing facilities are also available.

Choose to spend a warm summer’s day within the communal gardens, taking your meals outside and dining alfresco style while catching the last of the evening sun and listening to the babbling brook a few feet from your door, over a celebratory glass of bubbles.

Stroll up to the highly recommended Blenkinsopp Castle Inn, a 19th century bistro serving tasty meals and real ales; perfect if you fancy a night off cooking.

Why not visit the Gilsland Spa set in 140 acres of grounds and where legend has it Sir Walter Scott asked his beau to marry him at the Popping Stone?

The small market towns of Brampton and Haltwhilstle are easily reached and offer a good selection of independant shops to browse, as well as 2 small supermarkets, a butchers, bakers and fishmonger and several quaint cafés and tea rooms for delicious bites and nibbles.

Take yourself further afield and explore the North Pennines, Eden Valley and Scottish borders, all of which offer fantastic outdoor opportunity.

2 Old Row is a great location for enjoying breathtaking scenery and fascinating history that this area has to offer!

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!
