Region: Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife. Town: Known as the 'Centre of Britain' this small market town is well served by a range of local shop and excellent pubs. There are 3 castles within a few miles of Haltwhistle; Blenkinsop and Bellister are ruins, but the 14th Century Thirlwall Castle is well-preserved and worth a visit. Five miles away is Housteads Roman Fort, the best preserved Roman camp on Hadrian's Wall. Nearby, the parish church of Holy Cross is ancient building, which may date to the 9th century, and within it is a preserved 7th century water stoup thought to have been used by St Paulinus. Haltwhistle was granted a royal charter to hold a market in 1306 and the market is still held today. The town prides itself on being 'The Centre of Britain' and it makes a fantastic location from which to explore Hadrian's Wall country.

Crescent Cottage
We've just spent a wonderful week at Crescent Cottage, Haltwhistle. The cottage was beautiful and we didn't want for anything. Sue, the owner, was very welcoming and gave us lots of useful information about the area and visitor attractions. Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum is well worth a visit and is only a short drive away. The train stn is a 5 min walk away with easy access to both Carlisle and Newcastle. Would definitely recommend Crescent Cottage and would love to come back again in the future.

Cottage gets better with every visit
We made our 6th visit to Crescent Cottage in August and had a lovely peaceful holiday, even the weather was with us this time. Perfect location for walks to Hadrian's Wall. Lots of good places in Haltwhistle and nearby to eat and drink. Always receive such a good welcome back from Sue & Nick.

Great cottage in a great location
Loved this quirky upside-down house, with its friendly hosts. It's a two minute walk into town, which has plenty of pubs (recommend the Black Bull) and eateries, and a two minute walk to Sainsbury. The two and a half mile walk along the Haltwhistle Burn is beautiful (and flat) and from there is a short walk across a field and down the road to 'Cawfields' where you can join the walk along Hadrian's wall (definitely not flat). The house is well equipped and very comfy, so we enjoyed relaxing evenings after our days out exploring.

Great Upside Down Cottage
Really enjoyed our week at Crescent Cottage. We had a warm week and the upside down cottage meant that the bedrooms were cooler and a good nights sleep assured in a bed with a great mattress. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. Lovely outdoor sitting area overlooking the owners pretty garden. The owners were very welcoming and there was a cake and some milk waiting for us. We will be back - we loved it!!!! Great walking at Hadrian's Wall with an excellent local bus service to several locations along the wall. Haltwhistle has a number of pubs and restaurants as well as local shops and a couple of Supermarkets.

Wonderfully comfortable cottage
Firstly Haltwhistle is a pleasant surprise with good shopping, eating and drinking facilities...in fact just about everything you could need with two supermarkets, pubs, food and takeaways. There is also a railway with a regular train service!! The area has gorgeous scenery with historical sites and towns and superb walking country. Hexham, a short drive to the east is well worth a visit with its abbey, theatre and larger shops. In all the cottage, Haltwhistle and the area make an excellent package and having sampled it we will be back for more.

A Lovely Cottage
We have just returned from our 5th visit to stay at this lovely peaceful cottage. It is perfectly located for visits and walks along Hadrians Wall. We have always received a very warm welcome from Sue & Nick, who have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and places to visit, and recommendations on where to eat. This will certainly not be our last visit!!

Perfect
Simply can not fault the cottage and service of the owners. Spotless and exceedingly comfortable. We used the cottage as a base for walking Hadrian's wall and cycling. It's location was perfect. Lots of places to eat locally and plenty of shops to cater for yourself within walking distance. Yet it was an oasis of calm. Can't recommend highly enough. The Dewars of the Rogers and Dewar clans.

We had a wonderful time in Crescent Cottage
Sue and Nick gave us a very warm welcome and were very helpful. Nick told us a lot about Haltwhistle and surroundings. Sue baked us a delicious chocolat cake and there were fresh flowers in the living room of the cottage to welcome us! The cottage is very clean (we love that!) and had all the creatures comfort. Books to read and lots of leaflets with information about interesting places to visit are availlable in the cottage. All so well taken care of. A joy to stay in! Just around the corner there is a supermarket. In the cottage all you need to prepare a wonderful meal. And if you do not feel like cooking there are other possibilities nearby also for Take In Meals. Haltwhistle an ideal place to start exploring Hadrian's wall. A lot of very interesting places nearby. We had a wonderful time in Crescent Cottage!

Warm and Cosy
I was unfortunate enough to be ill whilst on holiday this year. However, if one had to be ill on holiday Crescent Cottage was the place!! All the home comforts, always warm, in spite of windy, rainy weather. The owner, who lived next door could not have been more helpful. The location was great for seeing the Hadrian Wall sites and local buses and trains travelled from Carlisle to Newcastle via the town. Plenty of shops for everyday needs as well as many eating/takeaway places.

Great Living Space
My family thought this was a lovely cottage to spend a week in. The upstairs living space was great - very comfortable and spacious. The village was nice with a decent pub, chippy and a supermarket close to the cottage. There was also indoor play area for the children on a rainy day. Hadrians wall was just a few minutes away by car - and we also enjoyed a day in Carlisle. We enjoyed meals at Twice Brewed and the Milecastle.
