This delightful, characterful, restored flat is conveniently situated in the very heart of historic Corbridge’s conservation area, overlooking the Corbridge church with views across the Tyne Valley. In just a few steps you’ll find a wonderful variety of independent shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. In less than 5 minutes walk across the village square flows the River Tyne and its picturesque bank side walks.
With its own private parking, this is a great base for holidays and short breaks for couples and families for 4 people (or up to 6 if you use the large living room for additional sleeping). Well behaved pets are also welcome. Take a trip out to explore Hadrian’s Wall and the surrounding countryside or along the stunning Northumbrian coast to castles, Holy Island, ancient priories, kippers at Craster and beautiful sandy beaches. Return to enjoy a good meal in any of Corbridge’s pubs and friendly restaurants and then home to your cosy flat and comfy beds.
Renowned for its Roman links, Corbridge (Corstopitam) has substantial, well maintained remains of the northernmost fort of the Roman Empire. Follow Hadrian’s Wall westward for Birdoswald, Chesters and Housesteads forts – all fascinating and impressive heritage sites.
The abbey town of Hexham is only 4 miles west of Corbridge and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, with its fabulous Quayside and Gateshead’s Sage Music Centre just 16 miles east. Direct routes by road (car or bus service), rail (yes Corbridge has its own railway station) makes everywhere quickly and easily accessible.
Nearby there are a wide variety of activities to choose from, including golf, tennis, horse riding and trekking, Hexham racecourse, rowing, swimming, yachting and windsurfing at Derwent Reservoir, just south of Newcastle.
This period flat, recently renovated and available for rental for the first time in July 2014, retains some of the features of the original big house and provides a light and spacious contemporary living/dining room with views across the village and hills across the Tyne Valley, with comfortable beds, a fully fitted kitchen, bathroom and two charming double bedrooms (one with double bed and the other with two singles) both with washbasins.
Please note that the property is not suitable for wheelchair users because access is by stairs.
