Local Information

Just 5.5 miles from Haltwhistle, where you can find an array of amenities, local services and transport routes, the cottage is the perfect spot to explore the dramatic local countryside, yet remains in close proximity to cities such as Carlisle to the West, and Newcastle to the East. For those who enjoy walking and hiking, the old South Tynedale Railway which opened in 1842 and closed to trains in 1976 is right on the doorstep. The trail runs from Haltwhistle to Alston with some amazing scenery and wildlife, including Lambley Viaduct which is only a short walk away. The section for Alston to Slaggyford has been restored and you can now take a ride on the train or have a bite to eat in one of Alston’s many cafes. If you like your history Hadrian’s Wall, Vindolanda, House Steads and the Sill are approximately a 30 minute drive away.

Cottage was very clean and warm, and in a brilliant location to do some lovely walks. The owners of the cottage are very friendly and always on hand to help, if needed. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Highly Recommended

A cosy, well-appointed cottage, set in stunning countryside. There are some great walks in the area and Lambley Viaduct is a must. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I’ve been coming here for years, a real “home-from-home”.
