Read guest comments

A magical setting, three miles from Hadrian’s wall, in a house full of friendship and comfort. Through ancient woodland, up the drive, over the burn and there it is: big, beautiful and Georgian. Interiors are comfortable country-house, full of warmth and charm; bedrooms, carpeted, spacious and delightful, are furnished with antiques, paintings and superb beds; bathrooms have roll top baths. Outside are lovely lawns, a walled garden, wildlife, and breakfasts on the terrace in summer. Katie – who was born in this house – looks after you brilliantly.

Local points of interest from
Simon & Katie Stewart:

  • We are five miles from the most interesting sections of the Roman Wall with its forts, museums and wonderful walking with stunning views.
  • The Roman Town of Corbridge with its famous bridge over the Tyne, Hexham and its Abbey, both steeped in history.
  • Alnwick Castle and Garden, Cragside, Wallington Hall, Gibside, Belsay Hall and Castle are all within very easy reach, as are Durham Cathedral, Beamish Museum, and Kielder Water.
  • There is an 18 hole golf course at Matfen Hall.
  • Newcastle-upon-Tyne has much to offer, shopping, museums, architecture, The Millennium Bridge, Baltic Art Centre, and of course the fantastic Sage Music Centre, designed by Norman Forster.

"Delightfully located well off public roads in mature parkland. Only birdsong breaks the quiet. Spacious bedroom and bathroom, delicious breakfasts and tea to greet you. Wonderful hospitality and great attention to detail. Thank you for it all!"

"A stunning place, set on a private estate near Hexham, beautifully kept and extremely comfortable. katie and Simon are warm and welcoming, and touches such as turning down the beds, putting on an electric blanket seem second nature to Katie. Delicious breakfast,tea and coffee in the room, large and warm bedrooms and bathrooms and a genuinely cosy atmosphere. Daffodils and wood anenomes cover the banks up the drive.Definitely one of the nicer places we have stayed, and that includes hotels."

"What a charming and pleasant place to stay, far from the plastic anonymity of most lodgings that confront today's travellers. "

"The Hermitage is a perfect bed and breakfast: beautiful house; charming setting; (perfectly) quiet and very comfortable room; excellent breakfast. Not to mention details like water by the bed, Emma Bridgewater tea tray, properly made (inter-lined) curtains, original Victorian bath. But of course what makes it really special is the welcome and attention to detail provided by the owner Katie Stewart. Beyond the call of duty were a detailed (and brilliant) direction for a circular walk on nearby Hadrian’s Wall; tea in front of a roaring log fire; a booking made at a nearby restaurant. "

"This was a delightful spot for the first two days of our holiday. The extensive house is nestled in perfectly quiet woodlands and surrounded by beautiful gardens. Katie and her waggy-tailed dogs were very welcoming. Our ensuite room was quiet and furnished with lovely antiques; the bed was very comfortable. Katie made excellent recommendations for dinner both evenings, and even booked our table."
