Description

Giles Place is a real gem of a cottage situated just a couple of minutes away from Hexham Abbey, the market place and the old gaol. Traditional and cosy, yet modern and fresh, Giles Place boasts an open plan living, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor which is very well presented throughout. On the first floor guests will find a double bedroom to the front of the property with a kingsize bed and en-suite shower room. The second bedroom to the rear of the cottage has a double bed and there is also a small family bathroom nestled away on the first floor too making this a great spot for two couples wanting to share a holiday. There is one parking spot to the rear and plenty of car parks and on street parking within a 300 yard radius. There are plenty of historic attractions to visit and a variety of popular places to eat, drink and enjoy within the town. Hexham is a great location for couples, families and friends to enjoy a holiday together, and there are plenty of leisure activities to entertain an active family. Giles Place is the perfect spot at any time of year. It is only a short drive away from Hexham Racecourse and Golf Club and there are plenty of opportunities for fishing.
Walkers and cyclists will find themselves just a short drive away from the established public footpaths, walking routes and cycle paths along Hadrian’s Wall as well as just a few miles away from the splendour of the Northumberland National Park and Kielder which have been designated as an official Dark Sky Parks. Many of the traditional Northumbrian villages can be reached within an easy drive and these include Corbridge with its beautiful river walks and boutique shops, Haydon Bridge, Bardon Mill, Bellingham and Haltwhistle. A little further afield but still within a 30-minute drive, guests will be able to visit the bustling city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Gateshead for the Metrocentre or the Angel of the North statue. The city of Durham is only a 45-minute drive away as are many beautiful beaches of the north east including Tynemouth and Whitley Bay.
Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

About the local area

The town of Hexham is dominated by Hexham Abbey set in the heart of the town dating back to the 7th century with its Saxon crypt still visible making it a 'must see' when visiting the area.


There is a wide range of shops, including a large number of antique shops selling everything from furniture and jewellery to books and prints. But Hexham is not just a place for those who love the past. It is a modern-day bustling market town that offers shops and leisure facilities including a newly-built swimming pool, two supermarkets and all the services you would expect to find in a town of its size.

Hexham also has a busy arts scene, centered on the award-winning Queen's Hall Arts Centre. The centre presents a varied program throughout the year, including dance, drama and European cinema. Hexham is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside you could wish to see. Historic Hexhamshire gives way to the Tyne Valley, and then the lonely Northumberland hills. Charming villages such as Corbridge and Bellingham are well worth a visit, and the area has some of the best walking around, not to mention the country pubs.

The 84 mile footpath that makes up the Hadrians Wall Path Nature Trail follows the historic line of Hadrian's Wall. The trail takes walkers along the riverside route in Tyneside, through farmland in Tynedale and the grazing upland section dominated by the Whin Sill escarpment. It then gradually descends to the rich pastures of Cumbria and finally the salt marsh of the Solway Estuary.

The highest concentration of Roman forts and museums can be found in the area between Chollerford and Gilsland, which lies within the natural beauty of the Northumberland National Park. Here you can see a multi award-winning fort, Vindolanda, and the best preserved Roman Cavalry Fort in Britain, Chesters, as well as some of the best preserved sections of the wall. Segedunum Roman Fort and Bath House are also worth a visit with its interactive visitor centre.

'Hadrian's Wall Country' offer visitors' dramatic highlands, rolling countryside and sleepy villages; stunning and varied scenery for walkers and cyclists alike. The Hadrian's Wall National Trial for walkers provides access to some of the best preserved sections of the wall and many of the shorter walks take in a pub or tearoom so you can have that well deserved break for a good pub lunch!
