Description

A cosy and peaceful property for a couple wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle, whilst retaining the convenience of the nearby A69 for exploring the area. This detached holiday home stands in a stunning location, with wonderful views of the Tyne Valley and North Cumbrian fells. Set in the Northumbrian National Park, the location is excellent for exploring the spectacular scenery of the north of England, the Scottish borderland, and the Lake District, which is just an hour away. The cottage is ideally placed for visiting the Roman forts along the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, including Housesteads and Vindolanda, or Chesters where you can explore how the Romans lived. After you have finished donning your toga and training to be a centurion, you can retire to modern day comfort of Hadrian’s Garden Villa, relax in front of the wood burner and look out over the beautiful views. As night draws in, it is worth stepping outside onto the south-facing patio, surrounded by planting including and views over the valley, to enjoy the non-light polluted dark skies and be stunned by all the stars. Complete with plenty of seating and a summerhouse.

There is a number of good golf courses within easy reach, including Hexham, which is described as one of the finest in the north of England, and Brampton which is the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Cumbria. There is storage for your bike at the property, so you can make the most of the local rugged landscapes. The landscape is equally good on foot, or to walk your dog, why not take a wander to Sycamore Gap and see the most photographed, iconic tree from the movie ‘Robin Hood’? On the way back, grab a pint or something to eat at the local inn.

Nearby towns include Hexham, a popular, historic market town which boasts a stunning abbey, the oldest gaol in the country, and an abundance of shops, restaurants and pubs. In addition, why not visit the beautiful Roman town of Corbridge or its fort, browse its boutique shops, art galleries and antique shops, or take a stroll along the river. Also within easy reach is Haltwhistle, the ‘Geographic Centre of Britain’, which has a sports centre and outdoor heated swimming pools, and Burn Gorge. Henshaw, ½ mile, and Hexham, 10 miles. Garage/shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

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!
