    Coupled with the beautifully situated, quiet, remote location, this made for an excellent stay. No traffic noise, just delightful birdsong. The friendly and knowledgeable owner was on hand nearby (if needed) and gave us exceedingly useful information about the surrounding area and local wildlife. Instructions in the cottage were comprehensive and clear. Local amenities for groceries and petrol were just a short drive away as were many good pubs selling quality real ales with decent food. Plenty of delightful tourist destinations just a short drive away for great days out (e.g. Kielder, Wallington Hall, Chesters Fort, Housesteads, Sycamore Gap, Belsay Hall). Fabulous! I would imagine Gallow Law Cottage receives many repeat bookings!

About the location


Kielder Water 7 miles; Hadrian's Wall 12 miles; Corbridge 18 miles; Hexham 19 miles.

Known as the ‘capital’ of the North Tyne Valley, this delightful town of natural stone houses nestles close to the banks of the River North Tyne. Said to be sited on a Roman station, the charming market town has much of interest, including a 12th century church, heritage centre and 30ft waterfall, just to the north. It’s also on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and is just a short drive from Hadrian’s Wall and Kielder Water and Forest. Suitable for year-round holidays, this unspoilt area with its fishing, horse riding, abundant wildlife and superb walking country is a nature lover’s dream. There is a superb golf course close by and the area has abundant historical sites, stately homes and famous gardens.
