  • "Great accommodation."

    Three double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, one with very short corridor to bathroom. Plus a toilet/utility room. Spacious and comfortable living room. Perfect for a large family or 3 couples. Perfect location in the town of Corbridge. Everything is within walking distance - restaurants, tea rooms, bakery, shops, a deli next door, a small supermarket a few doors down, and The Pele bar about 100 metres away. Would recommend.

    Thank you. You are most kind. Great guests. We hope to see you again in the future. John and The Old Exchange Team Property Owner

  • "This cottage is in a superb central village position above two shops, outside is a bus stop to Hexam or Newcastle."

    (No 10 ), the property is very well kept, clean , with three comfortable double rooms all en suite. You do have 2 or 3 flights of stairs to the main rooms and bedrooms. Someone said the church bells can be heard, hardly noticed them, they are not loud or intrusive. There is off street parking for 2 or 3 cars. The owner is very helpful for information and instructions with pictures on getting there, keys etc, and rang to see if everything was OK. It was. Th village of Corbridge and surrounding area has excellent walks, good access to Hadrians wall and the abbey at Hexam. We would highly recommend this as a base to explore.

  • "We loved staying at The Old Exchange."

    The owner was very helpful with information about where to eat and places to explore. The house was light and roomy as well as a bit unusual. Corbridge is very attractive, with many places of historical interest nearby. On our doorstep were lots of pubs, restaurants and cafes. There were many interesting shops and it has a train station which houses a famous Indian Restaurant. There is also a good bus service. I highly recommend both Corbridge and The Old Exchange.

  • "The Old Exchange is a lovely property right in the heart of Corbridge, itself a pretty town with all the amenities you could want with a super bakery, butcher, green grocer, deli and pubs all within 2 mins walk."

    Off street parking was super in a town that is otherwise challenging for parking (if a little tricky to get in and out of at times), and the property was very spacious and comfortable. It was very well equipped, especially in the kitchen and the bedrooms were great with views over the rooftops to the hills from the window seats. The owners were proactive and friendly and made themselves available for questions and queries.

  • "An excellent, well maintained, comfortable and well equipped property in an ideal central location with designated parking."

    There are plenty of amenities within walking distance. Anyone booking the property needs to be aware that they are staying in the middle of a large village so there will be noise from traffic and the church bells but it was of no consequence to us. Ideal property for those travelling around the locality needing a break from the car. Have given five stars for every category because where there was a very tiny issue the owner responded immediately. We also appreciated his knowledge about the area We needed to stay in Corbridge for a few days to attend a wedding so it was perfect accommodation and location for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Exchange and will not hesitate to book the property again.

  • "‘The Old Exchange’ is very comfortable and perfectly positioned for exploring this particular area of Northumbria."

    The apartment is spacious and well kitted out. The kitchen had everything one would need apart from egg cups. We all slept well in the comfortable beds. The apartment is positioned in the heart of the village with independent shops, good pubs and beautiful countryside all within a few minutes walk. John, the owner, was very helpful re directions and recommendations. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend staying in the apartment.

  • "The main reason I have not scored this property higher is due to the noise from the chiming church clock (every 15 minutes) and the noise from the bus stop (first bus at 5."

    30am) directly outside the property. This meant that we didn’t sleep well, which is not ideal when on holiday. However, the property was spacious and generally well-equipped. The owner was extremely helpful and came round to lend us a desk fan to help with the heatwave, as the top floor bedrooms were very warm when we arrived. He also gave us lots of useful information about the local area, which was appreciated. He also came to clean the table and chairs in the garden so that we could sit outside. Some areas of the property could have done with a little more TLC eg there were cobwebs and spiders in the main bathroom, and lots of dust and fluff under the upstairs beds, and the window in the main bedroom would not stay open. Also for the price I would have expected a smart TV in the property. Corbridge is a lovely town and we enjoyed exploring the area.

The beds were comfortable, if a litte softer than some of the party are used to, however that is personal preference and no reflection on the comfort, plenty of pillows and towels. All in all a very comfortable place to stay and we would happily stay here again. Thank you for providing such great information!

    The owner is super-attentive providing ideas of where to go/to eat etc. Lounge is very comfy and kitchen well equipped. Corbridge itself is a very good hub for a holiday from a viewpoint of the restaurants/pubs etc. The property is very close to both the local deli and the co-op supermarket - the combination of this and the local restaurants might lead you to putting on a few pounds in weight!

Hadrian’s Wall and Housesteads Fort are nearby, whilst the market town of Hexham is a few miles away and is well worth a visit, with its narrow bustling streets, good selection of shops and a fascinating abbey boasting 15th century paintings and a fine Saxon crypt. The Border Country, Northumbrian coast, Kielder Forest with cycling and watersports, Beamish Open Air Museum and Durham Cathedral are all within easy motoring distance, while the Gateshead Metro Centre (one of the largest shopping centres in Europe) can be found 20 miles to the east.
