  • "Excellent location for exploring the surrounding area and historical sites."

    The owners were very warm and welcoming and had provided plenty of extras that we haven't always had in other rental properties.The house was cosy despite the unseasonal cold winds and was well equipped. We would hope to return.

  • "Comfortable sizeable cottage with a parking space, a few minutes walk from the town centre."

    Its close to a bus stop for AD122 bus which goes between Roman sites, en route to Hexham. Perfect for day trips to Vindolanda, the best place to visit, and walks along the Wall itself without needing a car.

  • "Chare cottage is a gem of a cottage, spacious, clean, comfortable and charming."

    The hosts Netty and Nick are lovely, very welcoming and friendly. We had an amazing time this year and last year too. We are sad it is not possible to return next year, but we would like to thank Netty and Nick for everything and wish them all the best. Many thanks for the goodies you left us of cake and cookies and your homemade scones were delicious. We will always have delightful memories of our visits. Much love from Jan and Steve.

    It was an ideal base to explore all the Roman sites in the area and Hadrian's wall.

  • "A beautiful cosy cottage with all the comforts of home."

    Excellent beds, bedding and towels, everything worked and really close to the town centre. The hosts were wonderfully welcoming and available, but not intrusive, when needed. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "Quite spacious and comfortable house, with ambience and furnishing that appealed to us."

    Beds comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Nice collection of maps and guides. One or two minor things absent, e.g. eggcups. No broom to sweep the kitchen. TV is freesat, so takes a bit of research to find channels. We were there in a cold week in April: the heating was ok, except that we start at 6 a.m. and the heating did not come on until 7 or so. Bus services through Haltwhistle are pretty good, we used them often to get to walks, Hexham etc. Overall, a pleasant stay.

    Very spacious property with a useful off-street parking spot and a comfy dining room and lounge for warming up and recovering after a hike! Would definitely recommend.

  • "Well we’ve just returned from Chare Close Cottage and what a fantastic time we’ve had."

    The cottage is lovely and exactly as described (except WI-FI isn’t listed and the cottage definitely has this which is a bonus) Nick the owner was in touch via email and gave us his contact details should we need anything, which we didn’t. The cottage was spotlessly clean, spacious and had everything we needed and more for our stay. The nearest pub in the centre of the village is around a 5 minute walk away. Haltwistle is a lovely village with very friendly locals and we will definitely return. There are many things to visit locally and loads of great walks. We would definitely recommend this cottage and will hopefully return in the future. Thanks Nick

  • "Beautiful cottage and had everything in it to make us feel at home."

    However, we took our elderly labrador with us for what will be her last holiday. We booked this cottage knowing it was described as a '5 min walk into town (all up hill) and had a lovely garden.' No where in the description did it mention that the garden could only be accessed by 10 steep stone steps, making it unaccessable for our dog unless we physically carried her up! Had we had an elderly parent with mobility issues with us, they simply wouldn't have been able to go in this lovely garden. Whilst it didn't spoil our stay, it certainly made a difference to what I had wanted to enjoy.

    Also our dog found it very homely. Ideally situated to get out and about very close to some Roman Wall sights including a nice walk along Haltwhistle burn to Cawfield Fort and then pop into the Mile Castle Inn dogs not allowed inside plenty of outdoor seating. Loved it so much already booked for next year cant wait to go back.

  • "Enjoyed are stay very much."

    Accommodation very good & located in the town. Haltwhistle close to the famous Hadrians Wall by car & by foot. Plenty good pubs, food takeaways, shops & the accommodation car park is located at back of building. Owners were very helpful & nearby if required. The accommodation has everything to meet your requirements. We will most likely re-book this accommodation in the future when the weather is a bit drier & warmer to take advantage of the historical area with Hexham, Corbridge, Carlisle, Hadrian Wall & Forts as well as picturesque villages all in short driving time. Many thanks from Anne, Robert & Phoebe (the dog) Lindsay.

  • "The decor of the cottage and furnishings did not match photos on site I would never have booked had I known."

    Same horrid colour in every room bathrooms included plus noises from adjoining rooms in b & b the noises and closeness of main road also not mentioned made having a pet with us upsetting.

    We are so sorry our Cottage didn't meet your expectations. With regard to the décor, being a family home we do occasionally redecorate and change wall hangings so we can only apologise if this is not to your taste. We no longer operate as a B&B and can only assume any sounds from our next door property resulted from our reunion after many months of Covid isolation with our NHS front line worker family with exuberant grandchildren. Again many apologise for the road noise. It would appear apparent from online photos and limited research that we are on a minor village road which is very handy to access local facilities and for the Hadrians Wall bus. Property Owner

    It really was the perfect cottage, just out of town and nice and quiet whilst being within walking distance of all the facilities. Add on a good parking space, washer/dryer, towels and a comfy bed, it made a fantastic base for our holiday.

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!
