Grindon Cartshed sits within 600 acres of open farmland (the small flock of coloured Ryeland sheep are absolutely adorable!) and is an idyllic relaxing retreat. The farm is 4 miles from Haydon Bridge where there are shops and inns available. The historic market town of Hexham, dominated by its majestic abbey is often recognised as the jewel in Northumberland’s crown, and offers many facilities including a cinema/ theatre, indoor swimming, numerous charming shops and quaint tea rooms and several prestigious golf courses around 11 miles away. This is Hadrian’s Wall Country, an area with a rich heritage to explore (Vindolanda and Housesteads Roman Fort Museum are both interesting visitor attractions)- it’s a walkers and cyclists paradise with miles of wild and beautiful countryside to discover. The vibrant city of Newcastle renowned for its global, cultural pursuits and the extensive shopping facilities at the world renowned Metro Centre also offer an abundance of attractions including an 11 screen cinema, 20 computerised lanes of indoor bowling, Quasar, along with Metroland- Europe’s largest indoor theme park - being around 25 miles east.
Grindon Cartshed is an idyllic choice for those seeking a relaxing retreat and the perfect central base for exploring the wild expanse of Hadrian’s Wall Country coupled with easy access to the Northumberland National Park, the Scottish Borders and the Lake District.
