Description

Nestled away in the quiet village of Fourstones just outside Hexham, No 2 Cottage is the ideal location for guests wanting to enjoy some peace and quiet in this rural village, yet still be close to major transport links. Only a few miles from the A69 and the A1, guests will enjoy easy access to the North East and Northumberland. Perfect for walkers, ramblers and cyclists, Fourstones is surrounded by farmland, woodland and unspoilt countryside. There are many established public footpaths that lead directly through the village and out into the Northumberland countryside. The property is also ideal for guests wanting to bring their horse, as there is ample stabling on the owner’s farm on site and a riding school which may be used at cost and with prior agreement with the owner. There is also a local shop that sells local produce just over half a mile away and two well-known pubs within a one mile radius.


The Northumberland National Park is only a few miles away, as is the Hadrian’s Wall National Heritage Site where guests will be able to discover some of the Roman Forts including Vindolanda, Chesters and Housesteads. Just over four miles away, guests will be able to take a trip to the popular market town of Hexham, which is famous for its abbey and the old Gaol which is the oldest in the country. To the south of Fourstones lie the North Pennines with the picturesque towns of Allendale, Alston and Blanchland all within easy reach and perfect for a day trip. To the north lies the beautiful North Tyne Valley and Kielder Water which offer guests the opportunity to take part in many outdoor sports or even a spot of stargazing in this non light polluted area. Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead for the Metro Centre, Durham and the wonderful sandy beaches of the Northumberland Coast can all be reached in just over an hour’s drive too, making No 2 Cottage the perfect base for touring.

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!
