Description

The picture postcard Stoneybeck is a spacious, detached cottage which oozes character and charm, superbly situated in a quiet location, ideal for exploring the area. Nestled in the heart of Greenhead, Stoneybeck is the ideal base for walkers and cyclists, and is within walking distance of Hadrian’s Wall. Stoneybeck is in a great location to discover Northumberland, the Lake District and the Scottish Borders. The area has been awarded UK National Park Dark Sky status and there are two purpose built observatories at Kielder, as well as one about a mile from the cottage. Northumberland, with its National Park, is just a few miles away from the cottage. Hadrian’s Wall is on your doorstep, and a visit to Vindolanda is a must, where you can watch the archaeologists excavating, or visit the museum to see the famous writing tablets. After a long day exploring, relax in the garden or take a walk to Greenhead village to enjoy a good meal and a well earned drink. 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!
