Our home

Our cottage was once part of a traditional Northumberland farm and was converted to a separate dwelling around ten years ago. The accommodation retains the traditional features of a stone cottage whilst having up to date modern facilities. The rooms are spacious and we have completely refurbished the kitchen and bathroom since moving here in 2009. There are two double bedrooms and one bathroom with shower and WC and another WC with washbasin.
There are three other houses close by, so we are not completely isolated; all our neighbours are friendly and helpful.

Who we are

  1. We are both retired primary school teachers. Our daughter and her family live in Sydney, hence our desire to visit there.
    We have had several successful exchanges to Sydney over the past 4 years and hope to have more in the future.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our cottage is set in the North Pennines, known as the backbone of England, and is only a few miles from the dramatic Hadrian's Wall, some of the best Roman remains in Britain and providing an 84 km walk through stunning scenery, heritage and history.
There is a good range of shops and cafes and a rail station (with links to London and other major cities) in the town of Haltwhistle which is 10 minutes away. The historic market town of Hexham is only 20 minutes away and journey time to the cities of Carlisle and Newcastle upon Tyne is less than an hour. The Scottish border is only 60 minutes away.
Surrounded by open countryside, we can offer peace and tranquility in a completely unspoiled setting, whilst being close to good road and rail links.
