  • "We were disappointed that there was no freezer at the property as I had fresh dog food and food cooked for my daughter and myself."

    I think 2 single beds would be an improvement as not all couple want to sleep in the same bed. The couple who own the cottage were lovely. A welcome basket was left for us and 2 Easter eggs. The cottage is set in a lovely part of the world and we loved the walks in the forest with the dogs

    Hi Christine and Nicola, I'm glad you and your daughter enjoyed your welcome basket and Easter Eggs, and your walks down in the forest with your dogs. I am sorry about the freezer situation, but in the description of our cottage it does only say 'fridge' (with ice compartment). We have found having a double bed has been ok with previous guests, and have just recently replaced it with the new feature double bed - photographs and description in the property details describe this also.

    It was warm, the bed with its beautiful bedding was SO comfy We slept like babies! We particularly liked the recently installed bath that has handles and a grab for the shower... Too many accommodation providers are installing trendy high sided baths that are not safe for so many visitors. Everything was gleaming clean. We liked the parking inside the gate and the pretty garden that was secure for our dog who enjoyed his daily walks nearby. The whole area has so much to offer with nearby coffee house and eateries... The owners are so welcoming and provided treats for both us and our dog so we have no hesitation in recommending!

    It was cosy and and warm, the owners were close by for anything we needed and the surrounding space is perfect for dog walks right from your front door. I had read that there are some WiFi issues which didn’t concern us too much, but it did mean that watching any TV was challenging as it just wouldn’t stream properly. There were also a few bits that we didn’t bring as we’d assumed they might be at the cottage like shower gel, and milk but we were able to go out and get those and to be fair they had left a couple of small bottles of Prosecco and some dog treats for buddy. We’ll definitely be back.

The property

Hexham 2 miles.

A superb stone-built, Grade II listed wing of a former Bastle house, attached to the owners’ home in the sleepy little hamlet of Beaufront Woodhead, two miles from Hexham, Corbridge and Hadrian's Wall.

Your charming cottage provides an ideal romantic getaway, from where the delights of the Tyne Valley can be explored.

West Wing Cottage boasts many original features, such as flagstone flooring, cast iron range and an inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove.

Tastefully refurbished to provide a cosy retreat, this lovely cottage is accessed via an impressive front door which leads to the open plan living area; the small but well-equipped kitchen has all you need to rustle up a tasty meal and what could be nicer than curling up with a nightcap in front of the woodburning stove.

A staircase leads you up to the first floor with a welcoming bedroom, which boasts panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, and the bathroom provides a well-earned soak at the end of your day.

To the front of your wonderful cottage there is a large, enclosed garden with patio, ideal for enjoying an alfresco meal.

Just a seven minute drive from your cottage takes you to The Rat at Anick, a pub/restaurant, which serves first class food and top-quality ales, and the nearby ancient village of Corbridge has lovely shops and tempting tea rooms.

A short drive will take you to Hexham, a bustling market town with a 7th century abbey, shops, restaurants and supermarkets, and if you venture slightly further, you will find the A69 or the Military Road, perfect for exploring Hadrian’s Wall country.

The delights of the Heritage Coastline and Newcastle are all within easy reach, making this a great location for exploring this magnificent county at any time of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Newcastle 22 miles.

A bustling little market town, Hexham has several antique shops and is popular with tourists visiting nearby Hadrian’s Wall. Beautiful old Hexham Abbey dates back to the 7th century and has a superb Saxon crypt. Shoppers flock to colourful stalls in The Shambles in the Market Place on Tuesday and close by is the 14th century Moot Hall, now an art gallery. The town boasts plenty of open spaces, particularly the Sele next to the abbey, which is now a lovely public park. Nearby is Tyne Green - a riverside country park - and Hexham Race Course is just to the south of the town.
