This was our second visit. Will go back again and again. Beautiful character cottage with everything you need. Host Jacqueline on hand with homemade pies, quiches and cakes made to order. Delicious. Variety of home made jams, marmalade and chutneys available as well as fresh eggs from chickens in the garden. Just a wonderful place for lots of r and r or loads of history just a stones throw away. Highly recommended just don't book when we want to go!!!
We stayed in The Old Brewery Cottage for two weeks while volunteering at Vindolanda. The cottage is clean, roomy and unbelievably comfortable with extra throws and blankets for chilly September evenings. The beautiful garden, the source of eggs, jams and recipe ideas must provide an ideal venue for barbecues on summer evenings. We did almost all of our own cooking, making full use of the well equipped kitchen, only discovering Jacqueline's delicious home cooking towards the end of our trip. Not only were we only ten minutes from Vindolanda but Hadrian's Wall, Hexham and Haltwhistle are all close and well worth a visit.
Centrally placed with easy access to Hadrian's Wall/Way this delightful spacious character cottage has everything as a perfect base for exploring Hadrian country.
The owners couldn't be more helpful and welcoming and will even provide meals if requested. Homemade jams and marmalades available in the cottage, just select and leave the money on the shelf!
Quiet village setting with very close access to the main Carlisle to Newcastle road gives you the peace for a relaxing break and the mobility for visiting attractions with the minimum of hassle.
Just returned from a couple of nights in the Old Brewery Cottage - what a gem. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well equipped - everything you could need for a relaxing break. Perfect for us, with three teenagers and a dog. Lovely welcoming touches including a bottle of wine, eggs and freshly made scones. Great location for walking on Hadrian's Wall. Jacqueline, our host, was fantastic too. Thank you for a lovely stay!
We have just had a wonderful weekend at the old brewery cottages where you have everything that you need and more .We were greeted on arrival by a very friendly gentleman called Ron who showed us around the cottage which is huge ( photos don't do it justice ) we had a lovely welcome gift of scones on arrival which were to die for . they were so nice we ordered some more to take home but we ate them all before we left . Thanks Jacqueline our diet went out of the window .This cottage is a gem of a place .And we will definitely be coming back
We spent a very relaxing pre-Christmas break at this warm and very comfortable cottage. We have stayed in many cottages in the UK and can honestly say this is one of the very best.
The welcome gifts were very much appreciated - the scones and mince pies were absolutely delicious. We are still enjoying the preserves and chutney, and wish we had bought more!
The creature comfort I loved the most was the soft, luxurious and absolutely huge bath sheets (and yes I have bought some for myself since I got back).
Many, many thanks to you Jacqueline.
We stayed with our daughter, grandson and our two dogs for the first weekend in November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very comfortable and definitely a home from home with every possible convenience. Jacqueline was very friendly and welcoming and we would not hesitate to recommend this lovely cottage to our friends. Thanks again Jacqueline!
