Town: Known as the 'Centre of Britain' this small market town is well served by a range of local shop and excellent pubs. There are 3 castles within a few miles of Haltwhistle; Blenkinsop and Bellister are ruins, but the 14th Century Thirlwall Castle is well-preserved and worth a visit. Five miles away is Housteads Roman Fort, the best preserved Roman camp on Hadrian's Wall. Nearby, the parish church of Holy Cross is ancient building, which may date to the 9th century, and within it is a preserved 7th century water stoup thought to have been used by St Paulinus. Haltwhistle was granted a royal charter to hold a market in 1306 and the market is still held today. The town prides itself on being 'The Centre of Britain' and it makes a fantastic location from which to explore Hadrian's Wall country.

This was a traditional cottage which has been refurbished and modernised to a high standard. The garden is beautiful and well maintained with some unique features. The owners who live next door were very welcoming and helpfull but resepcted our privacy. Cant fault this cottage, nice local pubs for food, close to Hadrians Wall and some challenging local walks.

The owner made us very welcome. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. There were many leaflets about the area including several copies of various walks so that we could take these out with us. We had the use of a garage to store bikes.

The cottage was first class. Everything you could want was provided. There was plenty to do in the area and we found a week was not long enough.
Perfect base for our Hadrian's Wall walk

The owners were on hand to welcome us and for any queries but never intrusive. The cottage was warm, spacious and well equipped with an attractive outdoor seating area for warmer periods of the year. The location was great - quiet but close to the facilities of the town which include a Tesco store, good range of other shops, pubs, take-aways and places to eat out. We were walking Hadrian's Wall in day stages over our week and chose Haltwhistle for the transport links because it is on the railway line and also served by the AD122 seasonal bus that calls at points along the wall.
A good location for Hadrian's Wall

The cottage is situated next door to the house of the owners who were friendly and made us welcome. Upstairs is a large, light and pleasant living room, a nice bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. There is also a terrace overlooking the owners' beautiful garden. The only drawback is that, because the cottage is built on a sloping site, the bedrooms are downstairs and built into the hill, with the result that they are a little darker than we would have liked.
The location is good, quite close to the centre of Haltwhistle but on a quiet street. Haltwhistle itself is pleasant, although a little underwhelming, but the nearby countryside and Hadrian's Wall are wonderful.
