Description

Millers Coach House, built in the 1800s, is a quirky and stylish single-storey dwelling conveniently close to the centre of Hexham. Originally a coach house as the names suggests, it now forms an annexe to the owner’s home. From the side entrance, enter into the open-plan living/dining area, which has a staircase up to the galleried bedroom with twin beds. This is a light filled space with large windows and overhead Velux roof lights. The living area is the perfect place to relax with a comfortable sofa bed, chairs and Smart TV, the perfect place to watch a great movie or to catch up with your favourite TV programme after a day out exploring the fabulous town and surrounding countryside. There is a compact kitchen area with countertop electric hotplate, combination microwave for cooking, and also has a washing machine and a fridge. Completing the accommodation is a shower room. Outside is a small enclosed patio area with bistro table and chairs, a little sun trap in the morning and the perfect spot to sit and enjoy breakfast or your first coffee of the day. We plan to be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible, for example glass refill bottles for toiletries and bamboo cutlery.
Hexham itself is a lovely town with lots of historic attractions to visit, including Hexham Abbey, which boasts an interactive exhibition and a visitor centre, as well as fabulous grounds. Hexham is a popular place to visit at any time of year; within a short walk is a variety of restaurants and eateries, a theatre, a cinema, a golf course and a leisure centre with a pool and ten-pin bowling alley. For guests who enjoy a day at the races, Hexham Racecourse is within a short drive away and has a packed calendar all year round, a great day out for all the family. Walkers and cyclists will find themselves only a short distance away from established public footpaths, walking routes and cycle paths. Within a short drive visit the famous Hadrian’s Wall, the county’s greatest Roman monument and World Heritage Site. This crosses through stunning countryside, natural woodland and meadows, with established public footpaths, cycle paths and bridleways to explore, as well as Roman forts and settlements. There are many traditional Northumbrian villages to visit all within a short drive, including Corbridge, with its beautiful river walks and boutique shopping, as well as the nearby stunning Northumberland coastline. A little further afield, a day trip to the cosmopolitan city of Newcastle upon Tyne or the beautiful city of Durham are well worth a visit.

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!
