    “The property was well equipped and the welcome pack very generous.”

    My only complaint would be that the off road parking was only suitable for one car as the space was shared with the nextdoor cottage. There was not enough space for 3 average sized family cars without someone being blocked in.

The property

Stoneybeck is a charming, spacious cottage nestled in the little Hamlet of Longbyre a mile from the village of Greenhead near Haltwhistle, Northumberland. Sleeping up to eight guests and one well-behaved pet, with open-plan living areas retaining original cottage features, this is an ideal group or family retreat in a historic region of England. Enjoy a fuss-free arrival with convenient off-road parking for two cars to unload your bags and step inside your fabulous home-from-home. The social heart of the house is a spacious kitchen/diner with rustic tiled floor, pretty green tiling and a fabulous range cooker resting in an alcove; this is a wonderful space to cook up a storm for your loved ones, with a handy dining area for a few guests to plan the day's adventures over breakfast. Guests can throw muddy walking gear straight into the utility's washing machine, before jumping into a hot bath or a refreshing shower in the neighbouring bathroom! Gather in the open-plan living/dining room for a truly rustic retreat; wooden beams, a stone fireplace with a woodburning stove, and a gorgeous rug over tiled floors, with underfloor heating, makes for a lovely space to catch up with your loved ones, curl up with a good book on the leather sofas, or host a film night on the TV.

About the location

HALTWHISTLE

Hexham 17 miles.

Known as the 'Centre of Britain', this small market town is a great place from which to explore both Northumberland and Cumbria. Haltwhistle boasts a good range of shops and pubs - one of which, The Black Bull, is a real ale pub serving good food! There is an excellent leisure centre with heated open air swimming pool and cycle hire in the town, with pony trekking nearby. One of the best preserved stretches of Hadrian's Wall is only a mile to the north with various museums, forts and milecastles to be seen. There is even an ongoing 'dig' at the nearby site of Vindolanda. This truly is magnificent walking, riding and cycling country, with the Pennine Way and various bridleways and cycle routes passing rivers, forests, castles and of course, Hadrian's Wall. Visitors will enjoy this location in all weather and all seasons – a regular train and bus service from the town to Newcastle, The Metro Centre and Carlisle, means that you can leave the car behind and enjoy!
