About this property
A cosy and peaceful property for a couple wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle, whilst retaining the convenience of the nearby A69 for exploring the area. This detached holiday home stands in a stunning location, with wonderful views of the Tyne Valley and North Cumbrian fells. Set in the Northumbrian National Park, the location is excellent for exploring the spectacular scenery of the north of England, the Scottish borderland, and the Lake District, which is just an hour away. The cottage is ideally placed for visiting the Roman forts along the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, including Housesteads and Vindolanda, or Chesters where you can explore how the Romans lived. After you have finished donning your toga and training to be a centurian, you can retire to modern day comfort of Hadrian’s Garden Villa, relax in front of the wood burner and look out over the beautiful views. As night draws in, it is worth stepping outside to enjoy the non-light polluted dark skies and be stunned by all the stars.
There is a number of good golf courses within easy reach, including Hexham, which is described as one of the finest in the north of England, and Brampton which is the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Cumbria. There is storage for your bike at the property, so you can make the most of the local rugged landscapes. The landscape is equally good on foot, or to walk your dog, why not take a wander to Sycamore Gap and see the most photographed, iconic tree from the movie ‘Robin Hood’? On the way back, grab a pint or something to eat at the local inn.
Nearby towns include Hexham, a popular, historic market town which boasts a stunning abbey, the oldest gaol in the country, and an abundance of shops, restaurants and pubs. In addition, why not visit the beautiful Roman town of Corbridge or its fort, browse its boutique shops, art galleries and antique shops, or take a stroll along the river. Also within easy reach is Haltwhistle, the ‘Geographic Centre of Britain’, which has a sports centre and outdoor heated swimming pools, and Burn Gorge. Henshaw, ½ mile, and Hexham, 10 miles. Garage/shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
