3 Ada Crescent

Hexham, Northumberland
Bed & Breakfast

Close to Hexham's centre, a quietly charismatic Victorian home with fresh flowers, homemade bread, a sunny courtyard and a friendly terrier


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


Rosemary, warm and cultured, and Garlic the terrier, greet you with homemade cake and encourage you to feel at home. Her bright home and its bookshelves reflect her interests in art and history. She’ll happily arrange collection from the railway station or bus stop; a packed lunch for a day out – perhaps to Hadrian’s Wall, or the races – will be no problem either.Breakfasts in the kitchen/dining room can be as leisurely as you like, with homemade jams and muesli and traditionally cured bacon. And you’re welcome to take your coffee and a newspaper and relax in the little courtyard or sitting room before strolling across the park to the Abbey, museum or market.Join one of several heritage walks around the town or hike through the wonderful National Park which incorporates the International Dark Skies Park. Return for a hot bath, much warmth and comfort and a short stroll into town for supper.

Highly recommended! Rosemary made us feel very much at home during our weekend break. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom very modern and the breakfast was excellent. Altogether the house is tastefully furnished, well-kept and spotless. Garlic the dog is very friendly and well-behaved. Would definitely stay here again!

3 Ada Crescent is a gem, I have just finished a 4 night stay at Rosemary’s place in Hexham. Rosemary is lovely, Garlic the dog is cute, the house is beautiful and I had a really lovely stay there, while I visited Hadrian’s Wall etc. Highly recommended.

We booked 2 rooms. Lovely relaxing homely place to stay. Stayed 3 nights while exploring the region. Rosemary was most helpful with where to visit in the area. Breakfast was always delicious and she did all she could to cook food which we would like. Impeccable cleanliness and attention to every detail in the room. Never stayed in b & b before, but could not fault this stay.

It was a very peaceful place to stay in for people like us from London. Rosemary is a brilliant hostess and is interested in many things so conversation is lively. Her cooking is very good and one point about staying in a cul de sac is that there is no traffic noise. Hexham is a good place to stay to see a lot of Northumberland and as we came up with no car we found the local transport, particularly the AD122, very good.

Rosemary was a wonderful host - interesting and easy company. Her house is comfortable and homely; the bed was very comfortable. Yummy cake in the afternoon and in the morning homemade granola, fresh fruit and a lovely cooked breakfast. We came by train and Rosemary's house is well placed for the buses out to walking country round Allendale and Bardon Mill. Lovely to meet Garlic too!


Beautiful house which felt like a home away from home. Elegantly appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. The house is also very conveniently located to walk into Hexham . Would definitely recommend.


We’re returning visitors who greatly appreciate Rosemary’s gracious hospitality. Her elegantly-furnished home and meticulous attention to detail creates a comfortable and homely atmosphere, making this B&B a winner. The breakfasts are delicious, with locally produced products and homemade breads and cereals. Rosemary and terrier Garlic are most welcoming and entertaining hosts. We highly recommend this B&B and look forward to returning.


This was our second visit to Ada Crescent and just as enjoyable and relaxing as the first. Rosemary, aided and abetted by Garlic, is a delightful and welcoming host. The room is beautifully appointed and the bed luxuriously comfortable. The bathroom is new and perfect in every way. Cakes, homemade muesli, homemade bread and cooked breakfast were all delicious. The house is a short walk from the centre and Rosemary is ready to advise on restaurants and activities, from an extensive knowledge of Northumberland. I would highly recommend this property - we shall certainly be back.


A delightful overnight stop in this lovely B and B. Nothing too much trouble, a tea and cake welcome, very comfortable, homely, delicious breakfast. We would have liked to have spent more time there as there is a lot in the area to see. Great Indian restaurant too, Saathi.


We were so well looked after during our 2 night stay...a warm welcome,tea and cake on arrival AND the next day! A very comfortable bed with beautiful bed linen, great power shower, lovely soap, all just the best. Breakfast is wonderful with freshly squeezed orange juice, home made bread and cooked whatever we liked. And Hexham town centre is just a walk in the park away. Great place to stay!

The neighbourhood

Hexham’s central, ancient Abbey, is ten minutes’ walk from residential Ada Crescent. And there’s good food in this thriving market town; Rosemary keeps an up-to-date list of eateries and will gladly book for you. The fortnightly farmers’ market draws crowds. As does the May Book Festival and the September Music Festival. Hadrian’s Wall, and the National Hunt racecourse, are ten-minutes’ drive. Catch a bus to Corbridge, a train to Newcastle.

Local points of interest from Rosemary Stobart

  • Historic Hexham - named in Country Life magazine as England's favourite market town; situated in the heart of the Tyne valley with its ancient Abbey as a centrepiece. Two fourteenth century medieval towers and a Moot Hall still exist.
  • A twice monthly excellent Farmers' Market, Book Festival (May) Music Festival (September) great cinema, large leisure centre & swimming pool are just a few ideas! Shopping if you must ..... Corbridge has independent shops & Newcastle is only 30 mins away
  • If National Hunt racing is your thing then Hexham Racecourse - ten minutes' drive - is a natural amphitheatre 600 ft above the town and holds fifteen meetings from Spring until Christmas.
  • Hadrian's Wall plus its fourteen major Roman sites is within easy reach. Marvel at the stunning landscape of the World Heritage Site and visit museums such as Vindolanda.
  • Places to see a feasible drive away include Wallington, Belsay Castle and Gardens, Herterton, Aydon Castle, Cragside. However, Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Warkworth and Bamburgh are only approx an hour further.
  • What about a break without the car? We are ten minutes walk from Hexham Station or if you have a heavy suitcase I can come and collect you.


Rosemary Stobart

Rosemary grew up in the Scottish Borders and has renovated and run other special places before settling here in 2015. Sharing her Hexham home, her design flair, art and books, is a treat. Her knowledge of all things Northumbrian (and beyond) is impressive and she is as happy to advise and chat as she is to leave guests ensconced in an armchair by the fire with a slice of homemade cake.
