This detached property as been lovingly restored to offer substantial accommodation, yet retains much of its original charm through exposed beams and an open fire. With 3 bedrooms, it offers accommodation for up to 6 people.

Unofficially recognised as the capital of the Tyne Valley, it is a picturesque collection of stone houses nestling on the banks of the North Tyne river. This part of Northumbria is steeped in history and a wide range of historical monuments and buildings pay testament to the region's past. Hadrian's Wall is a short drive and the origins of Bellingham itself can be traced back to Roman times. In addition, the local countryside remains unspoilt and much of it is cared for by the National Trust, offering ample opportunities for walking, riding and other outdoor pursuits. The countryside also acts as home to a variety of wildlife and there are a number of nature reserves from which you can observe animals in their natural habitat.
Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
