Clean, spacious and well equipped
Very spacious and clean accommodation. We had a a group of 18 and was great that the communal areas were so large. We never felt overcrowded despite the numbers. Games room a nice extra next to the bar and the outside seating is bound to be huge benefit in the summer months. The bar has a traditional pub fridge so plenty of room for your drinks to chill. In the kitchen / breakfast rooms there are two large fridge / freezers and two cookers - again great for the large group. The dining room allowed the whole group to eat together. The cinema room has 3 sofas so good for kids to chill watching a film. (Maybe just us but it wasn’t until later in the stay that we realised you had to go through the DVD player to get Netflix etc. as TV only has freeview - hopefully helps others get their films sooner) Bedrooms were all clean and varied in terms of space but none that we considered small and cramped. The bedroom on the ground floor is not en-suite,which is clear on website so no complaint, however we found that as there is no communal toilet this was used by all when downstairs. Some showers sounded loud in rooms however we all agreed that we heard no noise from other rooms so good sound proofing throughout. Owners communicated well before, during and after our visit with the security deposit returned very quickly ( As it should be but unfortunately not normal practice) Local pubs all very welcoming and accommodating. Easy access to various parts of Hadrians Wall nearby and less than 30 minutes to either Carlisle or Hexham. Haltwhistle is also on the Carlisle to Newcastle trainline and less than an hour to metrocentre if you fancy some shopping without the drive.

Self catering cottage
First thing to say is this is a converted pub / b&b right in the middle of Haltwhistle, that has been renovated to a really high standard. A group of 13 of us stayed Friday to Monday and everyone throughly enjoyed the stay All the rooms were immaculate, each with their own en-suite bathroom. Everyone enjoyed the games room, bar area and the spacious living room There is also a lovely cinema room The kitchen facilities had everything you needed The outside area is well laid out and is a really good area when the weather is nice There is ample parking There are pubs , shops and the train station all within walking distance The hosts were easy to contact and dealt with any requests really quickly and made the whole process very easy We would definitely stay again and have stayed in another property owned by the hosts and found both places great to stay in

Amazing stay in a lovely location
A group of 16 of us stayed at the grey bull this weekend, it was lovely and clean, and is very modern inside with all the amenities you could ask for. The pubs/restaurants nearby are all really nice. The grey bull have a games room with a jukebox, their our own bar, and a cinema room that kept us entertained all weekend. I couldn’t recommend staying here more as the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating also.

Lovely, well equipped, spacious holiday rental
Excellent transport links - perfect for picking up walking trails and visiting attractions around Hadrian's Wall. Lovely location. Hosts incredibly friendly and very responsive to any requests for assistance. House was very well equipped. Cinema room and games room a bonus. Would definitely recommend!
