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!
