I wanted a break away from the Newcastle to relax and unwind and this property did exactly that. It certainly hit the mark and is as good as, if not better than a lot of other properties I've stayed at. To folk not familiar with the area it is in the perfect location to see Northumberland and Durham in all its glory. A first rate property.

The Old Exchange was a beautiful stay. Every bedroom had its own en suite, and all rooms were beautifully furnished and quite spacious. The property was so well situated - right in the centre of Corbridge and close to shops and fantastic pubs. The owner was so friendly and helpful, and gave us many ideas for things to see and do in the area.

We had a very, very good week at this property. It was very comfortably furnished and more than met our expectations. It felt like a very real home from home.

The apartment was very comfortable with a high quality finish. Comfy furnishings and beds, powerful showers. The owner was exceptionally helpful throughout the process, from telling me lots about the local area to swiftly dealing with a couple of queries I had. Nothing was too much trouble and he was courteous and practical.

The Old Exchange was everything we hoped for in holiday accommodation and Corbridge is a great place to spend some time. It was wonderful for each bedroom to have en suite bathrooms and the icing on the cake was the beautiful weather!

Ideally situated property in a lovely interesting village. Welcoming and informative owner. Brilliant bus and train service. A lovely place to relax in after visits to Newcastle, Carlisle, Housesteads, and of course Corbridge Roman Town.
Mrs Clatworthy
September 2013
This is the second time that we have had a family holiday in this property. I can thoroughly recommend it. The flat itself is of a high standard and the owner was attentive without being obtrusive. The flat is close to all village amenities, and there is a good bus service running to Hexham and Newcastle if driving is a problem. The local taxi service is good and local pubs and takeaways cater for all tastes.

Spacious and clean property, ideally placed for access to the immediate town and the wider area.
Mrs Bailey

We love Northumberland and this is our second visit to The Old Exchange. It is perfectly placed to tour the county and enjoy the coastline, castles and the countryside. The Old Exchange is a warm and cosy place to come home to after a day of exploration.

Proximity to the local shops and church. Comfort of the apartment. Fact that the owner got in touch personally to check we were happy. Bus to Hexham or Newcastle outside the door but very little noise from outside. Private parking for 3 cars. Very comfortable beds with high class white bedlinen and towels provided. A first class holiday flat.

A really warm and spacious house. Felt luxurious but cosy.

We chose it specifically for its location (Wall Country, town centre) and it was exactly right. Neighbouring mini-superstore was a real bonus.

Mrs Stanbury

Very convenient in the centre of the village - we were using public transport and the bus stopped right outside but it was not noisy. The property was exactly as shown and described on website. Having WiFi available was a very pleasant surprise.
Mrs Sullivan

Corbridge is a lovely small town with everything you could possibly want - restaurants, pubs, local shops - plus lots of history close by - eg Hadrians wall and Roman forts. The Old Exchange is right in the middle of it. Extremely comfortable, very well furnished, 3 ensuite bedrooms, separate utility room and with parking for 3 cars.

We found Corbridge an excellent place to stay as it has a number of pubs and good restaurants. The Old Exchange is well situated in the centre of the town and we found it in very good condition. Every bedroom has its own bathroom and I would definitely use the property again if staying in the area.

Superb. Very comfortable and conveniently situated in a lovely village location, within easy commute/ drive of Newcastle. The accommodation is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The owner is friendly, helpful and responsive. Overall this accommodation is really excellent and we would certainly book it again if we needed to stay in the area.

The central location in a town with very good shopping was great - the parking was essential. Good access to walking from the door and to public transport if we did not want to drive. Really felt like home.

Meticulously Clean & Characterful Apartment, centrally located in this delightful village. We stayed 3 nights as a family (3 adult couples), during our trip to Northumberland. The Apartment is tastefully furnished, with a high spec including lovely quality bedlinen & towels, welcome after a long trek along Hadrians Wall (approx 20 mins drive to Once Brewed Visitors centre where we parked & did circular walk along this superb section of wall). We particulary liked the 3 large ensuite bedrooms & wonderfully spacious Lounge, accommodating us all comfortably. John the owner whom we met on our arrival, made us feel welcome & briefed us on the accommodation & nearby places of interest & eateries. Corbridge is a lovely historic village with lots of quaint shops, good restaurants & 4 pubs, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definately return in future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Corbridge is a delightful, large village with a range of restaurants, 2 interesting galleries and lots of small shops including a good deli. It is also a good base for exploring the surrounding area.

We (family of four) spent a lovely 11 days here. It was warm, comfortable and relaxing. It is very well furnished and has a lovely, light spacious feel. It's position in the centre of a picturesque village is excellent and yet it is only minutes away from the countryside and tourist facilities such as an English Heritage Roman site. We would definitely recommend it.

The caring and friendly,informative attention from the owner was excellent. We immediately felt at home in this property,the three en-suites particularly useful! Superb location for local transport [Buses from the door and regular train services to Newcastle and Carlisle.]Only a short journey from the village is the Corbridge Roman Town...well worth a visit. Also within easy reach are many National Trust,English Heritage properties and of course ,the beautiful Northumbrian coast. Hidden gems in the village from bijou boutiques,gift shops,an antiques centre and endless choices of places to eat...from the local pub to award winning international restaurants. This property is great value for money and when time permits we hope to return!

its unique selling point is the fact that each of the 3 bedrooms is en suite . furthermore it has its own off road parking right in the centre of corbridge where most street parking is metered. ideally positioned, most restaurants and the coop supermarket are close by. An owner who was welcoming without being intrusive and immediately replaced without charge the glass i broke. the property is well maintained and well supplied. Sheets, towels etc are by Christy A degree in technology is however required to operate the washer! dryer!!

The Old Exchange offers complete comfort in the heart of Corbridge - with everything on the doorstep for a chilled out break. Butcher, baker, greengrocer ... and candlestick maker plus great clothes and art galleries, walks from the door, restaurants. And you own parking which is essential.

The helpfulness and understanding from the owners of this property was exemplary, The property itself is a delight being spacious, relaxing and very tastefully appointed, obviously a lot of thought and skill went into the interior design. Excellent en suite facilities Corbridge is a beautiful place to stay and is steeped in history and is close to numerous attractions.

We were a party of three couples, The property offered excellent standard of furnishing and fittings. The sitting room and bedrooms were spacious , The owner of the property came around one evening to ensure we were happy with the property, He was friendly and informative about the village and surrounding area. Plenty of hot water which is appreciated when six people want to use the showers at the same time. Parking for three cars at the rear of the property The only problem was that one week it not long enough in this beautiful area.

Our recent stay in The Old Exchange in Corbridge was a first class experience from the very first moment. Situated above an art gallery in the heart of the small and very picturesque town of Corbridge, this apartment was furnished to a very high degree throughout. We had a choice of any one of three beautifully furnished en-suite bedrooms and both of us being keen cooks we found the kitchen contained everything we would need during our stay. The welcoming owner not only gave us exceptionally concise directions as to ease our finding both apartment and parking space but in addition, having known that we were staying especially for our 25th wedding anniversary, had left a selection of goodies for us along with a most unexpected bottle of rather good bubbly! In addition he called us to arrange a quick courtesy visit during our holiday both to meet us and to check that we were content with the apartment. Indeed we were. We would heartily recommend both this apartment and the town of Corbridge to anyone looking for quality accommodation with excellent facilites close at hand.
