    “The accommodation is spacious and very clean .”

    There is parking space for one small car through a very solid stone tunnel between cottages, which you turn into at a right angle from a road with cars parked on either side. You would not get a larger car through the tunnel. Once inside pray there is only one car parked in the turning area else you'll have to back out through the tunnel....There are not enough electric sockets and there are extension leads off of extension leads which we considered unsafe.

    There is parking space for one small car through a very solid stone tunnel between cottages, which you turn into at a right angle from a road with cars parked on either side. You would not get a larger car through the tunnel. Once inside pray there is only one car parked in the turning area else you'll have to back out through the tunnel....There are not enough electric sockets and there are extension leads off of extension leads which we considered unsafe. You only get central heating if the solid fuel ( wood and coal burner) is alight, so in the mornings it is freezing. To get the radiators hot you need to use alot more coal than wood. Two bedrooms only have Velux windows very high in the ceiling so you can't open them or pull back the blinds . There is a low beam in the ceiling on the stairs to the attic room where I smacked my head- it needs some padding and a warning. There is only one exit from the property. Apart form these structural issues the property is full of art and collectables and there are few free surfaces. its well positioned in the town for easy access to shops and the road system.

The property

Nestled in the pretty village of Haydon Bridge, between Northumberland National Park and North Pennines AONB, is 3 Shaftoe Street. With access to Muckle Moss National Nature Reserve and Hadrian's Wall right on the doorstep, enjoy a restful break with your family and friends. This stone cottage oozes character from the open-plan living room, right up to the second floor bedroom resting under the eaves. It offers exposed beams, painted stone walls and period-style furnishings. The kitchen is fully fitted with integrated appliances in an unusual style. There is a Welsh dresser housing the crockery and a multi-fuel stove filling the home with warmth on a chilly winter's night. Relax and unwind on the plush sofas in the sitting area and take in the pretty surroundings. The first floor plays host to three double bedrooms, one boasting its very own en-suite shower room, whilst the high-class bathroom comes with a bath and shower over. Up on the top floor you have another double with Velux windows drawing in the natural light and traditional furniture and beams, adding character to the space. Outside you have a seating area and off-road parking for one vehicle. Haydon Bridge has a railway station, riverside walks, pubs, shops and a tourist information centre. You have access to the cities of Carlisle and Newcastle via the A69 from the village, where you can explore a variety of attractions, as well as shops, pubs, restaurants and a thriving nightlife. Visit Carlisle Castle, its racecourse and cathedral, along with the Life Science Centre and Discovery Museum at Newcastle. Cross the Tyne Bridge to Gateshead for more shops, pubs and the Shipley Art Gallery. Keilder Forest can also be easily reached by car, home to northern Europe's largest man-made lake. With so much to see and do in the surrounding area, how can you miss an opportunity at this delightful getaway.

About the location

HAYDON BRIDGE

Hexham 8 miles; Haltwhistle 8 miles.

The attractive village of Haydon Bridge is situated between the market town of Hexham and Haltwhistle, close to the A69, on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, and only a short drive away from the magnificent remains of the Roman Forts on Hadrians Wall, a World Heritage Site. There are some delightful walks in the area, but perhaps the loveliest are at Allen Banks - 194 acres of woodland and riverside paths just 3 miles from Haydon Bridge. The picturesque village of Haydon Bridge dates back to the 14th Century and is situated on both banks of the South Tyne river with an ancient pedestrian bridge over. Amenities in the village include a railway station, a variety of shops, pubs, a local tourist information centre, churches and riverside walks. Haydon Bridge is a great base for exploring Northumbria!
