Overview
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Hexham, Northumberland, England
Situated in the Tyne Valley, Peartree Cotttage is an attractive cottage with a spiral staircase and galleried walkway on the first floor. Well equipped and fully heated, the cottage has a log stove and a high standard of furnishings. It is in a quiet situation but within just a couple of miles from the village of Corbrdige which though small, has great shops and good eating. This area of Northumberland probably has the most to offer visitors.

Just 2.5miles away is the market town of Hexham with its historic Abbey, theatre, cinema, leisure centre and Waitrose. The area is superb for walking (the cottage has walking guides) and steeped in Roman history with not only the Roman Wall, but the sites of Corstopitum and Chesters within striking distance. Bowes Museum is one of the only non-metropolitan museums in the country and Alnwick Castle...

A really comfortable and family-friendly place to stay, well placed to explore the Tyne Valley, Hadrian's Wall and Northumberland National Park. Quiet and secluded, but with good access to Corbridge and Hexham for shopping and places to eat. We really enjoyed our time here and...More

About the neighbourhood
See Hexham Abbey is worth a visit. Parts of the church are more than 1000 years old. Historic places in Hexham include the Moot Hall and the Old Gaol, which has been converted into a museum devoted to the history of the Border regions of England and Scotland. Parts of Hadrian's Wall are within easy reach of Hexham. Sites worth visiting include Corstopitum (near Corbridge), Housesteads and Chesters. There is now a long-distance footpath along the entire length of the Wall, starting in Whitehaven and finishing in Wallsend. The Battle of Hexham levels in 1464 took place just south of the town and the site can be explored on foot Do Drop in to the Queen's Hall Arts Centre - a cool theatre, art gallery and cafe. Buy There is a highly-regarded farmer's market every second and fourth Saturday of the month from 9:00am-1:30pm in the Hexham Market Place in the town centre. Everything is produced within 50 miles of Hexham, and the market has been named the best in the country by the National Farmers Union. Eat Drink Hexham has a large number of drinking establishments. The Tap and Spile, in the main street of Battle Hill, has regular live music. This includes folk sessions on the third Thursday of every month, to which anyone can bring an instrument or their voice, or simply buy a drink and listen. The session begins between seven and eight o'clock, and usually continues until the pub closes at eleven. A similar session takes place just down the road at the Royal Hotel on the first Wednesday of each month. For real ale fans the historic Dipton Mill Inn in Hexamshire dating back to the 17th century is a must. It has its own micro brewery with five of its ales sold in the pub, pulled by Geoff, who brews them. It has a sunken garden, real fires and serves home made food. The pub is frequented by the local farming community and travellers. It is at the junction Dipton Mill Road and Guards Lane at NE46 1 There is a music festival in Hexham every autumn. Other award winning pubs, restaurants and chefs include the Bouchon in Hexham voted best French Bistro in the UK and The Duke of Wellinton at Newton.
