    “Very Central Location”

    We were very impressed with the apartment. We contacted the owner prior to arrival to organise key collection. On arrival we werent sure where we had to park so we drove through the little archway to one side and parked round the right hand side (taking care not to block the garages). The place is lovely. Wonderfully comfortable sofa and chair - who doesn't love a recliner after a hard day's walk! The bed was really comfy. I had the best sleep I have had in a long time. The only reason I didn't give it 5 was because the bedroom curtains are thin and let in so much light from both street lighting and early rising sun (4am in the height of summer!). Much as I like to get out and about, a lie in would have been lovely. Kitchen was fine for a bit of holiday catering but there were so many places in and around the town we didn't really need to cook too much, just breakfast. The bathroom opens directly into the kitchen. To be honest I loved the place so much I wish I lived there. Sainsburys is just round the back. The Black Horse pub is just over the road. Takeaway is next door. Chippie just along the way. If you are a member of a union, take your union membership card with you and you can be signed in at the Working Mans Club as a guest. They show various footie matches and on certain nights they have cheap beer! So much to see and do in the area, we will have to try and book for next year when hubby has had his holiday allocated. We managed to get to Edinburgh in a couple of hours, travelling along the A68 through Jedburgh. What a spectacular road. You have to visit Vindolanda. It is an amazing place. All in all this was a wonderful find and somewhere I would readily visit again.

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!
