Rural Elegance


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 .

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.


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.

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.
