The Experience

The stone built Georgian property was converted in 2004 and retains the original beams and fireplaces. Views from large windows are to pretty and unspoiled Northumbrian countryside, criss-crossed by miles of dry-stone walls and dotted with many sheep. From the dining room you have your own door to the walled garden for al fresco meals, a barbecue or to play games. Through the owner’s woodland is the North Tyne for peaceful picnics and salmon fishing.

The kitchen has granite-topped surfaces, a scrubbed wood table and plenty of space for everyone to join in – you’re left a welcome hamper of homemade lemon drizzle cake and a bottle of wine. Upstairs bedrooms are simple and uncluttered with antique furniture and nice views.

As well as your own private garden, the Sunken Lawn and Star-Gazing Platform in the Old Rectory garden are also available to guests (with shared access). You’re in the International Dark Sky Park so clear nights will reveal a spectacular display.

  • Northumberland National Park covers parts of the Hadrian's Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site and the International Dark Skies Park, stretching north to Wooler and skirting the border with Scotland.
  • Hadrian's Wall is Britain’s greatest Roman monument and World Heritage Site. Stretching 73 miles from North Sea to Solway Firth, the Wall is the backbone to Hadrian’s Wall country, with stunning countryside & picturesque villages.
  • Historic Corbridge is another charming market town along the banks of the Tyne. Several castle and country houses are within easy reach of the property.
  • The International Dark Skies Park covers an area of 572 square miles (nearly 1,500 square kilometres), making it Europe’s largest area of protected night sky. Awarded gold tier designation by the International Dark Sky Association in 2013.
  • Completed in AD678, Hexham Abbey is one of the earliest seats of Christianity in England​ and remains at the heart of the town to this day. Discover treasures and artefacts that span the ages, climb the centuries-old Night Stair or explore the Anglo-Saxon Crypt.
