  • "A gorgeous property with loads of space inside and outside."

    With the lounge being upstairs elderly or less mobile people may struggle to keep going up and down stairs. Everywhere was very clean and it had everything you needed. Fitted out to a very high standard. Would highly recommend, but it is a bit remote if you prefer to have loads of facilities on your doorstep. A great getaway property to escape to.

  • "We loved Gardeners Cottage."

    All the rooms were lovely and well planned. There was a luxurious feel to the whole cottage. The beds were so big and comfy. The surrounding area was stunning. We loved watching the Guinea fowl and other birds in the garden. Bellingham was a great place where we could get everything we wanted (except non alcoholic beer!). We really enjoyed the stay and we were sad to leave.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Gardners Cottage."

    The only thing we would recomend for others is to have a torch available. Saying that we so enjoyed seeing the brightness of the stars, such a lovely relaxing place for a break x

  • "Beautiful, comfortable and spacious accommodation."

    Kitchen was very well equipped. A DVD would have been a good addition in the lounge. If this is the area for your holiday then this is the property you want to be staying in.

  • "Lovely location & Sue the housekeeper was very helpful."

    Our Sainsburys delivery arrived early & Sue was kind enough to unload it for us. There are lovely walks on the estate & the only downside is it is quite a way from the coast. The cottage was very clean & we had a most enjoyable holiday. Even the weather was good.

    Fantastic location. Very peaceful. We loved watching the guinea fowls and feeding the lambs. Excellent local restaurants and pubs. Lots to do; cycling, walking, river kayaking, star gazing at Battlesteads observatory. Thank you we had a fantastic holiday.

  • "Beautiful setting within Hesleyside Hall."

    Spacious and comfortable cottage with flowers and cake to welcome - a personal feel. Games and magazines were appreciated and I found a set of The New Book of Knowledge which my parents had on our bookshelves back in South Africa when I was growing up - nostalgic delight! Poppy the beagle loved the walks and terrain. A pleasure to stay in this well-appointed and attractive holiday home - we all loved it.

  • "Lovely cottage and location with very spacious property."

    Well equipped kitchen and large bedrooms and sitting room with helpful folder on local attractions and facilities on site. As part of an old manor estate, there were some signs of aged plaster and decor that ought to be addressed over time. On the minus side the biggest issue was that in a cold March - it was not a warm propert. Whilst it did have central heating in all the rooms the radiator valves were preset and could not be changed so no independent control of the hearing. Unfortunately a few of the radiators including the main bedroom and lounge were in need of bleeding or degunging as the heat did not pass through them leaving the rooms cold. Whilst there was a lovely wood burning stove in the dining kitchen there was only one armchair in this room so this was the only independent source of heat. Also the free sat to or box in the lounge was not working so could not be used. Both unfortunately took away on the comfort and expectations score from what otherwise was a great cottage.

    It's location provided silence with the exception of a few owls. EVERYTHING in the cottage had a luxurious feel and there were thoughtful touches everywhere. I've never known a bed so comfy and the bedding was beautiful quality. I can't think of any constructive criticism as it was just perfect. Thank you. We will definitely return.

The property

Bellingham 2 miles.

A luxury, well-presented mid-terrace cottage set within the grounds of historic Hesleyside Hall.

Set in plenty of grounds and within easy access of many local attractions, this cottage would make a great place for a family or a group of friends.

The whole of the cottage is furnished to a very high standard with luxury in mind throughout.

On entry, you come into the fantastic well-equipped kitchen with great views across the grounds.

There is also a lovely dining table; a great place to catch up after a day out and about exploring the area.

Within the kitchen is a boot room area where you can hang those coats and leave those muddy boots to dry.

Upstairs is a good-sized sitting room with views of the grounds and even to the River Tyne.

There are three sumptuous bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room as well as a family bathroom.

The cottage has a front lawned garden with furniture and access to the surrounding grounds, with plenty of areas to walk or cycle, as well as access to the river, where you can try your best to catch either a salmon, trout or sea trout.

Located within the Northumberland National Park, you are within easy reach of local attractions, including Kielder Water, Corbridge, Hexham and the Northumberland Heritage Coast.

Gardener’s Cottage is a fantastic property to enjoy a great holiday in a superb location at any time of the year.

About the location


Kielder Water 7 miles; Hadrian's Wall 12 miles; Corbridge 18 miles; Hexham 19 miles.

Known as the ‘capital’ of the North Tyne Valley, this delightful town of natural stone houses nestles close to the banks of the River North Tyne. Said to be sited on a Roman station, the charming market town has much of interest, including a 12th century church, heritage centre and 30ft waterfall, just to the north. It’s also on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and is just a short drive from Hadrian’s Wall and Kielder Water and Forest. Suitable for year-round holidays, this unspoilt area with its fishing, horse riding, abundant wildlife and superb walking country is a nature lover’s dream. There is a superb golf course close by and the area has abundant historical sites, stately homes and famous gardens.
