On the A69 take the tuning that is signed posted Alston (A689), Halton Lea Gate & Coanwoood.

Following this road for approximately 3.5 miles until you come to the hamlet of Coanwood.  Past a school and row of houses situated on your left, take the second turning left with sign to Coanwood. Where the road forks take the left option. (sign that says Old Railway Cottage). Please take care on the track as it is not suitable for very low vehicles.

Pass through a farm gate – Please Close – 10mph max speed due to livestock (working Farm)  

Continue along the track, until the end where you will find the cottage on your right. Gates open out onto the track to access, park and close gates. 

Please park inside the gates of the property (there is space for 2 cars). The gates must remain closed as the cottage is set on a working farm.

For additional parking, where the road forks, continue straight on and you will come to a small car park. The cottage is a short walk to the left up the old railway line and can be accessed via a gate.

We have just spent a lovely three nights at this gorgeous property over new year. We are two families of five and there was plenty of space for us all. The cottage has been tastefully refurbished and decorated throughout with quality fittings and furnishings. In fact the photos don’t do it justice, it’s far nicer than it looks! The property was also extremely well equipped, everything had been thought of, down to a little party pack and dog treats! The cottage is quite remote but this was ideal for us. There are mainly beautiful walks right on the doorstep taking in Hadrians Wall and some stunning scenery. All in all this was just what we needed after Christmas and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage.

Loved it and would definitely recommend.

This is a little gem in the heart of Northumberland, the cottage was absolutely beautiful as were the surroundings. The host was really helpful and left plenty of information for us to use so we could explore. Loved it and would definitely recommend.
