We came from Brussels by aeroplane and didn't rent a car because it wasn't neccessary. Caroline, the daughter of the owner picked us up at the railwaystation of Haltwhistle and drove us to the supermarket so we could buy food for the week. At the end of our stay she drove us back, what a luxury! In front of the house there is a bus to Haltwhistle every hour, where you can take the Hadrians Wall Bus. You can find everything you have at home in the cottage so don't take too much luggage with you!
Our children (12 and 13 years) loved the house and the garden (and the selfmade scones en jam!) and enjoyed our week in the beautiful neighbourhood.
We highly reccomend this place to people looking for a quiet, neat and cosy home during there holiday.
Amazing cottage - so comfortable, contains everything you need and more! All the extra touches, scones, jam, eggs, fruit, chocs, wine etc. make it like home from home. I didn't want to leave the extremely comfortable bed behind! If added satellite TV and Wi-Fi would be 5 star. Very central for touring the area or walking Hadrian's Wall as we did, local bus/train service is excellent. Would definately recommend it to everyone.
