Bastle Houses are interesting historic buildings. Originally built as two storeys; the livestock to be housed on the ground level and the family would live above. It is believed this property is one of the few remaining complete Bastle Houses in Northumberland. The Bastle is situated in a friendly hamlet near to Whitley Chapel within Hexhamshire and enjoys a picturesque setting.
Yet the historic market town of Hexham dominated by its magnificent abbey is only 5 miles away and offers a wide array of specialist shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants to sample. Or why not try your luck at Hexham racecourse! Corbridge is also a very attractive village close by. An easy drive to the picturesque rural town of Allendale is well worth a visit; it’s where many travel from far and wide to celebrate New Year by its unique Pagan ceremony known as the Tar Barrel Festival. Pony trekking can be arranged at Sinderhope and Allenheads, perched at the head of the Allen Valley has its own heritage centre. Alston is positioned high up in the Pennines, which at 1300 feet above sea level claims to be the highest settlement in England and is the starting point for the South Tyne Railway – enjoy a leisurely ride and absorb the panoramic vistas of this wild and lonely beautiful landscape, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For those looking for an active cycling holiday, this is the perfect location to access Kielder, Chopwell and an excellent base for the ‘Coast to Coast’ trip. Golfers will delight in the many prestigious courses close by including the championship course at Slaley Hall.
The Bastle is well placed to explore the very best of Hadrian’s Wall Country and gives easy access to the Heritage coastline to the east or the opportunity to explore the north Pennines and the Lake District National Park too.

5 stars. Mr Carter was wonderful. I couldn't thank him enough as I could not get to grips with the log fire and he helped us. The scenery around is amazing. I have never seen the stars at night look so big!
Great cottage, owner very friendly, would stay there again.
