Area Attractions

 

Heavenfield Cottage is located at St Oswald’s Farm only two miles from the village of Wall. This working farm built upon Hadrian’s Wall itself lies only a stone's throw from St. Oswald’s Church which stands within Heavenfield. This is believed to be the location where King Oswald (604-642) raised a large wooden cross before the Battle of Heavenfield (AD635) and marks the end point of the popular walking route, St Oswald’s Way.

This attractive property gives guests the unique opportunity to stay quite literally on top of Hadrian’s Wall and boasts some of the original roman wall stones within its construction.

The historic town of Hexham is only 4 miles away with its majestic abbey dating back to AD674 and boasting a new visitor centre, there is a vibrant art scene, Old Gaol, cinema, theatre, local market, a choice of parks together with a lovely blend of quirky independent shops and high street favourites. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out or enjoying a relaxed drink with a huge range of cafes and restaurants.

Heavenfield Cottage is located on the ‘Military Road’ and couldn’t be more perfect and accessible for exploring the major sites along Hadrian’s Wall, small pieces lie within walking distance, and a half hour drive is all that’s needed to discover Chesters, Vindolanda, Brocolitia, The Roman Army Museum at Housesteads, Corbridge Roman Fort with the beautiful Lanercost Priory & Birdoswald only a little further on.

The villages of Allendale, Blanchland and Corbridge are all within a half hour’s drive and each with its own unique charming character, offering independent shops, galleries, cafes, restaurant and with their own walking routes to discover.

Kielder Water Forest & Observatory are only 25 miles away, offering watersports, visitor centre, sailing and some of the most challenging mountain bike trails in the UK. Kielder Observatory is one of the most remarkable places to visit in the whole of the UK. A public astronomical observatory which is second to none, under some of the darkest skies in the world where you'll find "infinite inspiration" and wonders you could never have imagined!

Further afield there’s plenty to see and do, why not explore the North East’s industrial heritage with a visit to Beamish Museum or Killhope Mining Museum. A journey up the North East coast offers Alnwick Castle & Gardens, Bamburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

Northumberland has many houses of grandeur, such as Wallington Hall, Belsay Hall & Quarry Gardens, Gibside Hall and Cragside.

If it’s culture, shopping and nightlife you want, Newcastle and Gateshead are twenty miles east. Their many attractions include the Baltic Art Gallery and the Sage, restaurants, cafes and night clubs, plus fantastic shopping both in Newcastle and Gateshead Metro Centre.

For sports fans, Hexham Race Course is six miles away; Newcastle United and Newcastle Falcons are twenty miles away; golf can be played at Slaley Hall, Matfen Hall and Hexham; and sailing is available at Derwent Reservoir & Kielder.

Reviews

What our guests have had to say:

"Heavenfield Cottage is an absolutely gorgeous self-catering destination for couples travelling to the North East.  It’s ideally located for all local amenities but also away from the hustle and bustle in the gorgeous Northumbrian countryside.  The cottage interior finish is extremely high and so very comfortable, everything you need has been thought of, we enjoyed it so much and would return in a heartbeat.  I can’t recommend this cottage enough…it’s superb!"

Gary

"We had a lovely time at Heavenfield Cottage.  I don’t think there is any more our hosts could have done to make us feel welcome.  The cottage is beautifully equipped and extremely comfortable.  As a base for exploring Kielder Forest, Northumberland National Park and the Northumberland Coast it was excellent.  Even though our stay was in the midst of freezing temperatures, sleet and snow the cottage was a haven."

Julian

"Well I’m not even going to wait until the end of our visit. This place is pure luxury with everything catered for and a great attention to detail. A fantastic place to come back to today after our walk to Sycamore Gap in every different type of weather possible. Had such a warm welcome yesterday with the fire lit and a beautifully decorated, festive house. 5 Star beautiful property, great location, you must visit."

Julie

"Premier cottage.  Everything about it, including fixtures, fittings, equipment was a ‘cut above’.  A beautifully restored building!  The owners had obviously thought of everything.  Ideally located for those with an interest in history, both Roman and Medieval.  Also close to the amenities of Hexham.  We had a wonderful time."

Nikki

"This cottage is really something special and it is a pity the highest rating is 10 as we would happily rate it higher. It is far and above the best place we have stayed in. Furniture and fittings are of high quality. Lighting is excellent. Huge fluffy towels are provided. The owners, Lorraine and John, are warm, friendly and very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. An absolute gem. We loved it."

Naomi & Peter

"An excellent long weekend away at Heavenfield Cottage. The property was fantastic and has everything you need. The owners could not have been more helpful and the location is perfect for exploring Hadrian’s Wall, especially as it is built right on top of it! Would love to visit again in the future."

Neil

"We had such a special weekend here, thank you Lorraine and John for an utterly luxurious and outrageously comfortable stay in your stunning cottage - so many thoughtful extra touches, a warm welcome and wonderful peace and quiet. Can’t wait to return!."
