Bridge Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Positioned on the outskirts of Haltwhistle, this 19th century cottage is a cosy home-from-home. Offering a very high standard of accommodation, this recently refurbished property is comprised of a fully fitted kitchen, living room with dining area, two bedrooms and a lovely patio in the property's walled garden. This is a fantastic retreat for the summer holidays with the facilities for al-fresco eating, barbecues and a wide variety of outdoor activities nearby, though for those 'English Summer' days, the property is equipped with Sky TV, a DVD player and a stereo system so that even when it rains, you won't be bored. Known as the 'Centre of Britain', this small village is easily accessible by car, bus and train.

The small market town of Haltwhistle is a vibrant place, offering a wide range of shops and other amenities. Home to The Black Bull – a proper, old fashioned pub, serving quality food and real ale – the village is a welcoming place to return to following a day of walking, pony trekking or cycling. With the Pennine Way and other great cycle routes and Bridleways running nearby, it's easy to enjoy this stunning scenery, which boasts dramatic castles, surging rivers and beautiful forests. Those interested in the country's history are sure to enjoy a visit to one of the best preserved stretches of Hadrian's Wall, only a mile north of the village, and with an ongoing dig on the site of Vindolanda, it's easy to get in touch with the nation's past. If history isn't your cup of tea, then there is a regular train and bus service in to Newcastle and Carlisle, meaning that you can leave your car behind and enjoy the nightlife the big cities have to offer.

Northumberland isa heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

This is a great little cottage but the second bedroom is very small. It is a bunk bed which is comfortable and big enough for adults but it swamps the room and there is very very little storage space. It would be fine for a family with 2 children but not suitable for 2 couples. It was fine for us, We tossed a coin for who was going to have the bunk room. We were two friends on a walking holiday. Unrelated to the cottage but relevant if you are going for a walking holiday along the wall the AD122 bus now only runs in Northumbria. We ended up with getting Sprouls taxis for the Cumbria bit! Recommend for a couple, but not 2 couples. The bathroom was a bit cold but did pick the coldest week in May to stay.
July 2010
Very compact, not for large families, but very well located. Ideal for exploring the Roman Wall and the spectacular Northumberland scenery.
