Heavenfield Cottage is a beautifully renovated, farm building conversion offering excellent quality accommodation. This attractive property gives guests the unique opportunity to stay quite literally on top of Hadrian’s Wall, and boasts some of the original Roman wall stones within its construction. Set on the owner’s 220-acre working farm, which has some of the best views of the area and fantastic walking opportunities, Heavenfield Cottage is located at St Oswald’s Farm, 2 miles from the village of Wall. The farm is built upon Hadrian’s Wall itself, and lies a stones’ throw from St. Oswald’s Church which is believed to be the location where King Oswald (604-642) raised a large wooden cross before the Battle of Heavenfield (AD635), and marks the end point of the popular walking route, St Oswald’s Way.
Renovated throughout, Heavenfield Cottage is a real gem of a place to stay. Warm, comfortable and absolutely packed with interesting original features, it has plenty to offer. Providing luxury accommodation, it has a large open plan living room and kitchen area, along with a wood burner, exposed stone walls, original beams and underfloor heating. The kitchen is contemporary, practical and of excellent quality offering good quality appliances. The spacious master bedroom boasts a super kingsize bed. The bathroom is definitely ideal for those long romantic nights in, with a double ended bath and a walk-in rain forest shower, you may find yourself never wanting to leave! Outside, there is parking for 1 car and a garden with sitting-out area, furniture and BBQ.
