Interaction with guests
Keepers Cottage is just across the courtyard from our own house - Bonnyrigg Hall. This is a working upland farm with about 100 acres of grassland and woodland. Because of our close proximity, we are on hand to meet you on arrival to give keys and show you around the cottage. If you need anything during your stay we are usually available to help.

Obviously the main draw to the area is Hadrian's wall, but scenery in general is stunning. The cottage, its location, its condition and its privacy are a delight and we couldn't recommend it more. The walk through the woods and along the boardwalk is sensational....More

About the neighbourhood
Locally there are many spectacular Roman sites to visit. Housesteads Fort is only 5 miles, and Vindolanda just 3 miles. There are several good walks imediately from ther cottage itself. In particular, there is a boardwalk which crosses the stream and leads you around the nearby Greenlee Lough which is great for birdwatching. The national trust property of Allen Banks is also a great woodland walk particularly for dog owners.
Getting around
Keepers Cottage is in a unspoilt location of Northumberland National Park. We are in a secluded area which is off the beaten track. There are no street lights and our area is known for it's dark skies. Perfect for star gazers, and we even sometimes get treated to the Northern Lights. Because of our location is it essential to get to Keepers Cottage by car. In order to get around the area, it is possible to travel by train. Our nearest station is Bardon Mill, which is on the Newcastle to Carlisle line. Also, in the summer, there is the Hadrian's Wall bus service (AD122). This runs from Hexham to Haltwhistle along Hadrian's Wall.
