The Experience

If you haven’t been to Northumberland before then you’ll be thrilled to enter a world of rolling hills chopped up by dry stone walls, lonely Roman roads (not much has changed here since they shouldered through), acres of pine forests, and a pleasing dearth of other human beings. Come to walk along bridle paths, footpaths and well-worn sheep paths across to Vindolanda, the Roman fort and the Wall.

Inside is generous, light and roomy with a humongous kitchen, French doors to the garden, smart TV, a mix of old prints of the county and plenty of castles, plus a big OS map on the wall. Views from all windows are far-reaching and will tempt you outside again and again. Wander down to fish in the river South Tyne (permits available) or hire bikes and head for the hills.

You can walk off-road to the nearest town, Hexham, three miles, which has good independent shops, a train station and a rather fine Abbey.

Reviews

It's beautiful up here - rolling hills, dry stone walls, very few people and grand walking and cycling. Northumberland at its glorious best and a very swish cottage to enjoy it all from.

Location

The neighbourhood

The Northumberland National Park is above you and the Pennines below so walkers and cyclists could stay for months without following the same route twice. Emma and James leave a map of restaurants and pubs you can walk to from the cottage and you can ask them about fishing on the estate. Corbridge, five miles, has rather posher shops and a deli, Newcastle is 30 minutes, the coast is 45.

Local points of interest from Emma & James Middleton

  • Just up the road from Stay On The Hill is the highly acclaimed HJEM restaurant, Northumberland's only Michelin star restaurant. A fine dining Scandinavian cuisine in a tasting menu format. An absolute must, but table reservations necessary.
  • Explore the picturesque village of Corbridge, perusing the many independent shops (RE - is a favourite homeware store). Once you have filled your car and had a walk along the river, relax with a cuppa at Tea & Tipple or grab a bite of lunch at The Angel.
  • Book a ticket for Tynedale beer festival and witness first-hand the warm and friendly Geordie hospitality whilst sampling one of the 100's of beers, ales, ciders and more. If running is your thing, The Great North Run is a must, the atmosphere is electric.
  • History & culture, walking or cycling Hadrian’s Wall has everything to offer. Take a picnic, enjoy the panoramic views or pop to the Twice Brewed Inn for lunch, you can even visit their on-site Brew House. The Sill visitor centre is right next door.
  • Cyclists will love Kielder water and forest, a haven for wildlife (red squirrels, deer and otters) The Lakeside way is a 27-mile trail, everyone from littleies on balance bikes, mountain bikers and wheelchair users will enjoy this spectacular scenery.
  • A trip to Northumberland is not complete without heading to the coast. There are so many options from unspoilt beaches, castles, coastal paths and delicious local cuisine. 1 of our favourites is a walk at Newton-by-the-Sea & a crab sandwich at the Ship Inn

Introducing

Emma & James Middleton

The cottage is part of Warden Estates, a traditional working farm owned by Emma’s family. She and her husband James moved back here with their young children - they love walking and cycling, so have created the cottages with great thoughtfulness for like-minded people. They’ll happily leave you delicious homemade meals in the freezer or gather together a hamper of local produce for your arrival.
