Hideaway Huts

The Bothy and The Shieling

Our two Hideaway Huts, The Bothy and The Shieling,  are located in the quiet, secluded paddock adjacent to Stable Cottage, and each provides exclusive accommodation for two guests.  With stunning views across the South Tyne Valley,  this rural idyll is just 3 miles from the most spectacular stretches of Hadrian’s Wall and less than a mile from the world famous archaeological site at Vindolanda. With the whole of the Northumberland National Park to the North, the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty to the South, easy access to the vibrant city of Newcastle 30 miles to the east and the Lake District to the West, there is always somewhere to go ….if you can tear yourself away …..


In each, the open-plan living area comprises a comfortable seating area and Culshaw Bell kitchenette, opening on to veranda. The kitchenette has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and small dining table. There is an electric wood-burning effect stove, Smart TV with catch-up TV, digital radio and streamed films from Netflix and Wi-fi internet access.
Bedroom has a zip’n’link kingsize double bed, which can be separated into twin singles if required, and is screened from the living-area for privacy.
Bathroom: With shower over bath, WC and wash basin and also a automatic washing-machine.


All utilities, bed linen and towels included.
