Warm and welcoming with lots of quirky accessories, there are nods to all the local activities. Howburn Log Cabin is full of character, ensuring your every comfort is catered for. The cabin is solar powered with a fabulous wood burner in the living area, leather Chesterfield sofas to curl up on and a large Smart TV with Netflix to binge watch. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished with great beds and crisp bedding, where a good night’s sleep is guaranteed.

With so much to enjoy in the outdoors, wrap up and take a stroll around beautiful woodland, open fields and riverside walks. A short stroll will bring you to the River Tyne and a pathway takes you amidst stunning countryside as you walk along its banks. A steep pathway rises behind the cabin, and care must be taken, but the view from above across to the river is well worth the climb. Salmon fishing is particularly good in this part of the region, the owner himself being a keen fisherman. The lodge is a perfect place to stay for such an occasion and passes for the river fishing can be bought both online and locally. Out and about, this is a fabulous place to explore with so much to see and do. Set on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, the location is excellent for exploring the spectacular scenery of the north of England, the Scottish borderland and the Lake District National Park, which is just an hour away.

Just a short walk up and behind the cabin takes you across the A69 and onwards towards the historic Northumberland National Park. Here you can discover the Vindolanda Roman Fort, The Sill Landscape Discovery Centre and the world famous Sycamore Gap on Hadrian’s Wall. Also within a short walk is the pretty town of Haltwhistle, which is the geographic centre of Britain, here there is a sports centre and outdoor heated swimming pool, as well as Burn Gorge, also a selection of shops, bars and eateries. A must on the list to visit is the historic market town of Hexham, which boasts a stunning abbey, the oldest gaol in the country, and an abundance of eclectic shops, restaurants and pubs. Continue on to the beautiful Roman town of Corbridge, and meander round its boutique shops, art galleries and antique shops, or stop for a coffee after taking a stroll along the river. The Newcastle/Carlisle railway line, runs in front of the cabin. You can catch a train from nearby Bardon Mill station with a stopping service in each direction every 2 hours. The A69 is within easy reach giving easy opportunities to explore this historic region and onwards to Scotland by car. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

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!
