The property is situated only 4 miles from the very pretty and upmarket historic small town of Corbridge with a good choice of pubs, bespoke shops, cafés and lovely church. Hadrian’s Wall has museums and Roman forts only 7 miles away, and a day can be spent visiting sites along the wall. Take your walking shoes and go over to ‘Sycamore Gap’, the famous tree which featured in the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. The dark sky in this area is beautiful on a clear night for stargazing and perhaps catching the Northern Lights. There is a friendly pub 1¼ miles away in Great Whittington which also serves Chinese food and is popular with the locals.
Capheaton Hall and Matfen Hall, both popular wedding venues, are a short drive so Rose’s Bower would be a great base if you are visiting one of the venues. The vibrant city of Newcastle is only 20 miles away, and the historic town of Hexham is only 7 miles with plenty of shops and pubs. A day trip to the seaside is only 33 miles away with the stunning Northumberland Heritage Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty worth a visit, or Tynemouth with beaches and plenty of upmarket bistros, fish restaurants and wine bars for a coastal day out. Rose’s Bower is an ideal base from which to explore the many delights of Northumberland and the border counties. Return to relax and unwind in this pretty and unspoilt part of the county. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ 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!
