Relax and Enjoy the Northumberland Countryside

Beaufront Hill Head

The Holiday Cottage was the original farmhouse at Beaufront and we were the dairy farm for the 2500 acre estate. Built when the  parishes of Corbridge and St John Lee were enclosed in the 1770s, the cottage has been completely refurbished in recent years  and given back its own private garden, with views for 350 square miles (on a clear day!) from  every south facing  window.

There are many clear days – Hexham, like Norfolk and parts of Morayshire, having its own  micro climate as a result of most really wet weather being caught by the various rows of hills to the west of it .

Book Your Stay

Grade II – Georgian Cottage

The cottage is essentially designed to sleep up to 4 people. There is one bedroom with two single beds and another with a large double bed. Each has its own bathroom and loo.

On prior request , and for an extra payment,  a third ( downstairs ) bedroom ,with a double sofa bed , can be made available, taking the capacity to 6. That downstairs room might also suit someone with limited mobility,and there is a loo nearby too. By day, with the sofa bed away,  it is a peaceful drawing  room.

There is a fully equipped kitchen , a dining room that seats 6 ,but could stretch to 8 , and a sitting room with TV . Wi-Fi is available  throughout the  property.

There is your own car-parking space and room for  visitors’ cars.

The garden has a  gravelled sitting area , a barbecue  and  fabulous south facing views . You are 700 feet above sea level and gazing down into the Tyne Valley and way beyond to the highest Pennines.

Guest Testimonials

What a find! The home-made beef sausages in the welcome pack were on the barbecue within an hour of my arrival ,and eaten while admiring the stupendous view which seemed to stretch for ever.  We  had a great three nights and the beds were really comfortable. So much still to see – so we will be back  .

We took your advice and went to Wallington and sleepy Brinkburn. I sincerely doubt we’d have known about them otherwise. A brilliant stay and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. Having a separate dining room was great, and the evening sun poured in while we had dinner .
