This elegant farmhouse benefits from a peaceful location, near many of Northumberland’s popular attractions. With four bedrooms, sleeping up to eight people, it’s perfect for larger families or groups of friends. Plus, thanks to a big garden and spacious communal areas, the farmhouse has everything guests should need on-site for a relaxing, sociable stay.

For instance, one of the first rooms you come to is the large kitchen and dining room just off the stone-flagged hallway. It’s home to an Aga in addition to exposed beams, creating plenty of ambience. It has everything to cater for large groups on holiday, while the long table means everyone can get together easily at meal times. The property also benefits from a separate downstairs WC and handy utility room. The lounge has comfortable seating, a wood burner and views of the garden. It’s a great space to catch up with the rest of your group or you could head through to the reading room when you want peace and quiet. Up on the first floor, are the four bedrooms. There are two doubles, one with an en-suite, a twin bedroom with an extra trundle bed if required and finally, a lovely super-king-size room. A charming family bathroom completes the accommodation. Outside, the property has an enclosed garden to its rear. It has garden furniture and a BBQ on its patio for al fresco dining.

It’s hard to beat the location of this property with Hadrian’s Wall and the Vindolanda Fort and Roman Army museum within 7 miles. Plenty of wonderful walks are therefore easily accessible along the wall’s route while history buffs will enjoy exploring the Roman ruins.

Stunning location, fabulous house..fantastic to have a dog cage in the property, saved bringing one. Lots of little added extras, the dog loved the garden (though be warned its not secure) and the extra two outside spaces. Lovely comfy beds. We will def be looking to return!

This is a wonderful comfortable, family friendly farmhouse with loads of room, excellent facilities, and in a brilliant location (especially for Roman history buffs with the free access to Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum, not mentioning Hadrian's Wall is a relatively short walk away across country).

Absolutely brilliant holiday home and wow what a location! Perfect to immerse yourself in the history of the landscape. You are so close to Vindolanda and having a pass for the museum (and also the Roman Army museum up the road) was a wonderful bonus.

Our stay at Vindolanda's Codley Gate Farmouse was WONDERFUL! The scenery was beautiful, and the sound of the river flowing by was just magical. We left with a heavy heart as we did not want to leave, but with strong hopes to return again next winter or spring. One of the best feature was the wonderful woodburing stove set in the inglenook fireplaceRead more, with ample supply of wood and coal for our entire stay (7nights). All other needs and wants were top notch, and wish I had more room to write. Hide
