ery homely and well-equipped house with Microwave, Cooker, fridge, washing machine, TV, DVD player and HiFi. Comfortable lounge ideal for unwinding in the evening.
Separate dining room and everything was very well presented. We were only the second people to rent it out, in August 2017 school holidays at approx. £500 a week it represented good value compared to B&B.
Good size bedrooms with ample storage, comfortable beds and a VERY QUIET neighborhood leading to a peaceful night's rest.
Downstairs there is a bathroom with Good electric shower and on-demand hot water for lots of baths!
Nice sheltered garden although we did not use that nor the garage which is also included.
Friendly approachable owners should you need to contact them.
Lots of useful information provided in the house on local attractions, amenities ets.
Note: Horse Riding: I thoroughly recommend Sinderhope Pony Treking Centre. 2.5 hour canter across the moors for experienced riders is awesome , and it is beautiful drive to the stables from Haltwhistle (approx. 30 mins).
Despite the quiet location It really is only 5 minutes walk to the supermarket, or the bustling high-street with lots of interesting shops, and literally only a couple of minutes round the corner from a nice park with swings etc for the kids.
It is also ideally suited to accessing Hadrian’s wall, and should you want to visit Hexham (nice town with an interesting Cathedral incl Saxon Crypt) or Carlisle.
There is a train station in haltwhistle and a good bus service if you prefer not to drive.
Cons: The ONLY slight downside with the property is the very Steep driveway which is not suitable for wheel chair users and may pose issues for others with mobility issues.
Would we use again?
Definitively if visiting this area in the future I would have NO hesitation in doing so, especially outside of school holidays :-) .
It was a lovely relaxing week and a smashing place to come back to at the end of the day
