The Old Farmhouse is situated on Grindon Farm where guests will enjoy watching the small flock of adorable coloured, Ryeland sheep at play. The charming village of Haydon Bridge is only 4 miles away and where there are ample local facilities. The historic market town of Hexham, dominated by its majestic abbey offers many amenities, 8 miles east. This is the heart of Hadrian’s Wall Country; England’s largest Heritage Site within the most northerly of National Parks. Vindolanda, Thirlwell Castle, The Roman Army Museum and Walltown Craggs – the highest remaining section of Hadrian’s Wall - are all interesting visitor attractions close by.
Ramblers and cyclists will enjoy the miles of bridleways and footpaths whilst absorbing the panoramic vistas of the wild and un-spoilt Northumbrian countryside and there is a superb choice of prestigious golf courses and salmon fishing opportunities in the area.
A train station from Haydon Bridge gives easy access to the vibrant city of Newcastle 25 miles east and Carlisle 25 miles west.
The Old Farmhouse is an excellent choice for those seeking contemporary accommodation with the added benefit of being all on ground floor level, awarded a bronze award for access at the North East Tourism Awards, in a beautiful countryside setting; it offers a stunning base to explore Hadrian’s Wall Country with easy access to the Lake District too.
