    “A lovely property in a lovely location.”

    The property is very well maintained and extremely clean. The facilities and comfort are second to none. We have stayed in many self catering cottages over the years but I think this is the nicest we have stayed in, and at an extremely competitive price. The owner even took the time to come and say hi, and reasure us he was there if we needed anything. The location gave us walking access to Hexham, Chesters Fort and the Roman wall. We had a fantastic holiday. Thank you.

About the location

HUMSHAUGH

Hexham 6 miles.

Humshaugh is an historic Northumberland village, 6 miles from the region’s main market town of Hexham - a bustling town with a fine Saxon crypt, shops and restaurants. A short drive will take you to pretty Corbridge, which dates back to Roman times and has pubs, specialist shops, and a 12th century bridge spanning the River Tyne. A day exploring the many delights of Hadrian’s Wall shouldn’t be missed and a little further afield will take you to the Heritage Coastline, as well as the castles of Alnwick, Warkworth, Dunstunburgh and Bamburgh. For those who prefer staying closer to home, Humshaugh has a great pub serving quality food and real ales, an award-winning shop and weekly visits from a fish and chip van! Walks and cycle routes from the doorstep will take you through the Tyne Valley, and this is a perfect location for all that Northumberland has to offer.
