  • "We had a great week and the cottage was ideal for our walking the wall as very centrally located."

  • "Haltwhistle is a great place to explore Hadrian's Wall."

    However the Cottage is tired and many of the fixtures and fittings were worn, but everything we used worked. The car parking space is a plus point. The towels were old and stained/ holed. Minimal information about the appliances and heating - which we needed to adjust during our stay. No information about recycling and out of date tourist information. Minimal information about pubs/restaurants in the town. No information about walks from the door, eg the lovely walk along the Burn up onto Hadrian's Wall. There is no WiFi - this should be made clear in the description of the property. As said in another comment, the property is up for sale and so unlikely to see any further investment. As a consequence, we would not recommend others to stay.

    Thank you for your feedback We did put new towels in the property recently but I understand from my cleaner that an old teatowel with a hole was left out in error. We also leave old towels with a dog bowel placed on top for guests with pets. There is a detailed information pack in the property with guides on how to use the appliances and we mention that you do not need to do any recycling as we do this for you after you leave. There is no 'wifi' advertised at the property and the tourist information office is closed, but there is a lot of up to date information on places to eat and visit in the property. Property Owner

  • "Property was nice, but is up for sale with a big sign outside."

    On the estate agents website it says that the owners aren’t hands on which is a shame as the property does need a bit more attention to detail. The oven needs upgrading as there wasn’t a proper grill tray and it looks like it has seen better days, in the main bedroom the bedside drawers kept sliding open and although the cottage had been cleaned there were discarded toenail clippings in the lounge and the dining table looked like it had been cleaned with a wet cloth. These were minor issues which didn’t spoil our stay and wasn’t worth raising with the owner especially for what we paid for our 4 night stay, but it seems obvious that it won’t be invested in until it is sold on.

    I'm guessing the facilities were either the downstairs bathroom or the lack of WIFI - not to worry a lovely score - Bests viv xxx Property Owner

  • "Property was well located for visiting hadrians wall."

    But their were a few issues we found aswell. Firstly we thought the property was tired and wasn't reflected in the photos which seemed very out of date. Secondly the king size bed had old faded torn stained bedding and un-ironed. Along with this there was a second uncovered mattress put on one of the beds. Which we found out was simply from another property and because they had no were else to put it decided to chuck it onto the king-size bed which lead to a 3 bad night's sleep untell we were told the story and could take it off if we wish. Thirdly when we arrived the property had been cleaned but not to a great standard and we had to hover around ourselves so we felt comfortable (I would like to say we didn't ring the owner that night about the cleaning as we got in late and were tired from a long drive and didn't want to be disturbed).

    The cottageis much updated from the original images, where we had a very basic sofa & a really compact 'fold-away' dining system, we donow have a vert large leather eclining chair & a far more comfy leather sofa as well as an extreley comfortable tub chair. Finding it hard to imagine which bedding was on the bed, as we do have a charcoal grey set & a pale grey set?? Not sure how thespare mattress/ex deep bed topper scenario happened, but there are two beds in the property - the rear bedroom has a double bed & the front bedroom a kingsize .... any feedback is always welcome especially laon rrrival then wecan sort it.

    This was a lovely cottage beautifully situated the only downside for us was the bathroom fascilities,we found the bath very high to climb in and out of for a shower my sister and I struggled also the sink was very tiny to wash, in this was the only downside to the property otherwise well appointed ,would go back to Haltwhistle again but unfortunately not to this property needs much taller people ,the person Lynne looking after the place was most helpful gold star

    lyn is amazing - so sorry about the bath being so high, it is the normal bath height, but it is so difficult to do the decision - bath or walkin shower??? Many walkers are looking forward to a bath & yet many just love the luxury of a quick shower. This seemed a good compromise, however we are alwyas looking to change for the better & perhaps a walkin shower would be a good alternative. The sink scenario was to leave as much space as possible - so tiny sink - larger bathroom area xxxx Property Owner

    I am pretty sure it mentions the downstairs bathroom in the description, however i do feel for you as i live in a one level acomodation & love it..... xx Property Owner

  • "Comfortable cottage, ideal location and public transport, enabling us to leave the car at the cottage, very good."

    Only comments relate to the state of the garden area, a need to clear/tidy up and the lack of recycling facilities at the property, resulting in our having to find an alternative, namely the local collection point, rather than dispose of glass/plastic/paper etc. in the landfill waste.

  • "The cottage was of a good standard and in a great location."

    Was a perfect base for getting to and from Newcastle for the Great North Run. The cottage was well fitted out with everything that you would need.

    thank you so much for such a positive response, especailly under such circumstances IE the stress of the GNR... xxx Property Owner

  • "My wife and I are in our eighties and didn't realise that the bathroom/toilet was downstairs."

    This made it very difficult during the night for trips to the toilet, with the bedrooms being upstairs.

    so sorry for your disappointment, but it does clearly state that our bathroom is downstairs - it is a really old property & planning for anything is a nightmare - Bests viv xxx Property Owner

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!
