  • "Superb quality cottage."

    Spacious living room & kitchen. Window blinds were so welcomed & needed (very hot weather). Decor really relaxing and to a high standard. The bedroom upstairs has a low ceiling, tall people would struggle. Impossible to sit up in bed to read or have a drink without your head being against the wall. Location is excellent for touring the area. Should we return we will bring sun loungers - the garden is so peaceful to relax in. Hot tub we used once & thoroughly enjoyed it. The one thing we would have liked is a fan in the bedroom - it gets very hot upstairs and even with all skylights open it made our sleep uncomfortable. Same goes for the Living room, a fan would have been a welcome addition. The shared gated driveway was easy for us as there were no guests in the cottage next door.

  • "We have just had a wonderful week at Stoney Wall and the surrounding area."

    It is a fabulous, brand new modern open-plan apartment with a wonderful hot tub to relax in. There is a very spacious double bedroom upstairs and sofa bed downstairs. It is in the heart of Roman Wall country, amidst magnificent scenery and not far from the Scottish border. Thirlwall Castle ruins are a very short walk away. The excellent Roman Army Museum is on the outskirts of Greenhead by Walltown Country Park. The Sill, the new National Park Discovery Centre is about 10 minutes away and is well worth a visit too and is on the way to Vindolanda. You can see views of Sycamore Gap along here as well as along the B6318 if you don't wish to walk to it. We would love to return and highly recommend it. Many thanks to Lorraine and Sarah, her housekeeper.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stoney Wall."

    The location is excellent for both Hadrian's Wall and the Lake District. The hot tub was great after a full day's hiking. The bedroom was too hot, even with the windows open so we had to go and buy a fan. My only recommendations for improvement would be supply a fan and a clothes horse so we could dry the clothes/ towels outside.

  • "A perfectly located comfortable property which has been furnished to a very high standard."

    Perfect for a couple. Definitely not your average holiday rental. A short flat walk takes you to a lovely pub, the Greenhead Hotel which does an excellent early evening set price menu. The property is excellently located for many of the Hadrian's Wall sites, so if your a history buff, perfect. In your not it's still perfect for walks and visiting several towns,villages and pubs close by . Or if you just want to relax and unwind, there is a hot tub for you to soak away in and chill. I would definitely recommend this property. Thanks to Lorraine,the owner, for a perfect stay.

  • "We arrived at the property and we got the wow factor straight away."

    The photographs do not give it justice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and couldn’t have asked for more. We would 100% return and recommend.

Nestled in Greenhead near Haltwhistle, Northumberland is this wonderful, contemporary, detached cottage, Stoney Wall.

With a fabulous open-plan living space, en-suite bathroom and a sheltered outdoor hot tub, the cottage welcomes two guests for the perfect romantic getaway.

Step inside, kick off your shoes and be immediately welcomed by the warmth of underfloor heating in the living area; sink into the sumptuous corner sofa after a long journey and relax with your favourite show on the TV.

Move through to the sleek kitchen area to set the dining table ready for a home-cooked meal, rustled up by the party's chef, who can utilise the electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and ample storage space for their go-to ingredients.

Ideal for those with limited mobility, elderly guests or to sleep two extra people, the open-plan living space also has a handy sofa bed for two, with easy access to the stylish ground-floor shower room; be sure to hang your towel on the heated towel rail whilst you rinse off in the walk-in shower for added comfort.

About the location

HALTWHISTLE

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!
