    “A nice property, but some issues that could be easily addressed.”

    The unusual room layout means that light from the kitchen floods in to the Vault bedroom due to a high window on the shared wall. Not good if you go to bed before others. Blackout blinds would help. The vault door itself lets through a surprising amount of sound, some carefully placed insulation would help here. The initial impression is of a decent level of cleanliness, but if you pull out a bedside unit to retrieve a dropped ring as I did this level does not extend far. This issue was apparent ...

    The unusual room layout means that light from the kitchen floods in to the Vault bedroom due to a high window on the shared wall. Not good if you go to bed before others. Blackout blinds would help. The vault door itself lets through a surprising amount of sound, some carefully placed insulation would help here. The initial impression is of a decent level of cleanliness, but if you pull out a bedside unit to retrieve a dropped ring as I did this level does not extend far. This issue was apparent elsewhere in the house, a deep clean is needed. The dining chairs are in a poor condition, basically starting to fall apart. This needs attention, for safety reasons if nothing else. Although it didn't impact us, the radiators in the living room urgently need securing. The wall brackets for them have been incorrectly fitted and they would come away from the wall easily.

The property

Settled in the heart of the charming village of Bellingham, amongst the rolling countryside of Northumberland, rests this spectacular three-bedroom holiday home, The Vault House. Uniquely positioned within a former banking building, renovated to a high-standard whilst maintaining the property's original character, a quirky retreat for six awaits at The Vault House. Park up on the roadside and marvel at the grand double-fronted exterior of this wonderful holiday home before stepping through the doorway, to begin your fabulous staycation. Elegant chandeliers adorn the ceiling of the spectacular open-plan living/dining room, where plush velvet sofas and a rustic AGA feature provide a truly lovely spot to enjoy a moment of peace in front of the television following a day of adventure. Follow the corridor through to the well-designed kitchen, beautifully-adorned with an eye-catching blue Farrow and Ball décor and equipped with a range of helpful amenities, sure to entice any budding chef. Uncork a bottle of wine and gather together with your loved ones at the dining table to tuck-into the fruits of your labour as you recount the day's adventures or plan your thrilling holiday itinerary. The first of three bedrooms, a sumptuous double room, benefits from the unique feature of an original vault door, survived from the former bank, whilst a second double and a king-size each benefit from access to their own en-suite, so there's no queues in the morning! Take advantage of your superb location in the heart of Bellingham, where you will find a plethora of eateries right on your doorstep; fuel a day of excursions with a hearty breakfast at the local cafes, tuck-in to a spot of pub fare at the local pubs, or pick up some fresh, locally sourced produce to prepare from the comfort of your holiday home from Bellingham shops. Be sure to pack your walking boots and embark on a two-foot adventure along the Hareshaw Iron Works Trail that leads from the village through a wooded valley and into the spectacular countryside of Northumberland National Park, or walk alongside the glistening waters of the River North Tyne to reach Kielder Water. One of the best locations in the UK for stargazing, be sure to visit the International Dark Sky Park to spot constellations; it's a great reason to visit Northumberland during colder months for the perfect skies! Kielder Water and Forest Park is a must-visit for wildlife and walking lovers, being home to England's largest forest and the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe, plus inspiring sculptures and stunning vistas. Keep the little ones entertained with a trip to Go Ape Matfen, home to an exhilarating tree top adventure course, whilst those wanting to escape the excitement may prefer a visit to Bellingham Golf Club. For budding historians, Hadrian's Wall lies just south of Northumberland National Park to walk along the remains of Ancient Rome. Whether you're looking for adventure or relaxation, The Vault House makes an idyllic base for a staycation in Northumberland.

Known as the ‘capital’ of the North Tyne Valley, this delightful town of natural stone houses nestles close to the banks of the River North Tyne. Said to be sited on a Roman station, the charming market town has much of interest, including a 12th century church, heritage centre and 30ft waterfall, just to the north. It’s also on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and is just a short drive from Hadrian’s Wall and Kielder Water and Forest. Suitable for year-round holidays, this unspoilt area with its fishing, horse riding, abundant wildlife and superb walking country is a nature lover’s dream. There is a superb golf course close by and the area has abundant historical sites, stately homes and famous gardens.
