Excellent location and property finished to good quality and very comfortable More attention to detail would improve the holiday experience.Just a few minutes from the town centre and literally in the park.There is no dedicated parking space so you have to compete with clients at the adjacent chiropractor and users of the park but we had no problemRead mores. The skylight in the bedroom means its flooded with light very early and a blind would be of benefit. Heating was excellent as was the shower. Hide

Cosy & very comfortable cottage, close to the Abbey & a lovely park on your doorstep. 2 minute walk into town with plenty of places to eat & drink. Corbridge is a 15 drive. This little place is great for a couple wanting to get away for a weekend. Highly recommend.

This is a gem of a cottage right in the heart of Hexham but tucked away no noise from traffic. Our dog loved it we were right on the edge of the park we met the local dog walkers each day very nice people gave us plenty of info regarding the area. We would have no problem recommending this cottage.

This cottage is a lovely and pleasant to stay in. The bed linen is spotless and the bed is comfy. The bedroom is very bright because of a "skylight" above the bed.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
