    2 excellent nearby pubs. Hourly bus service to Hadrian's Wall sites stops right outside, hourly bus service to Carlisle and Newcastle, and railway station 8 minute walk, also half-hourly services. Central heating issue quickly resolved by host.

    I was lucky to be there when the weather was warm and,unfortunately, this meant that the mezzanine floor, where the bed is situated, got too hot to offer a decent nights sleep, despite the efficient ceiling fans and having opened the windows below. The winter-weight duvet didn’t help. The fridge would be a bit small for anyone wanting to do much cooking and there isn’t really any on site parking. I left my car, as advised, in the nearby Sainsbury’s car park and it was fine. There is a good train service from Haltwhistle and plenty of food shops, pubs and takeaways. Look out for the pop up Greek takeaway, across the road on Wednesday night.

    It is less than 15 minute walk from the railway station and there is a bus stop right outside. The communication regarding key collection was timely and clear. There are plenty of takeaways, bars and supermarkets within 100m of the property. The property is clean and comfortable although due to the position within the building, the bedroom is obviously at the very top and therefore gets very warm if the weather is kind. There is a ceiling fan which does it's best to distribute the air but if you are lucky enough to have great weather, as we did, you will probably need to leave the windows open too and because of the location to bars it can be a little noisy until closing time. The obvious answer here is to stay in the bar until closing ;-)

    Being on the top floor means you can see out over the town to the surrounding countryside both front and back, even though the location couldn't be more central, overlooking as it does the market square.

    Being on the top floor means you can see out over the town to the surrounding countryside both front and back, even though the location couldn't be more central, overlooking as it does the market square. You are well above all neighbours at the back, and although there is a building of equal height in front its top floors don't seem to be in use. This is unusual in my experience of self catering places. The directions for arrival provided by Stella were very clear and with a reassuring level of detail.

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!
