Couples looking for an idyllic rural retreat or perhaps an individual seeking a stylish and comfortable base from which to explore the outstanding beauty of West Northumberland should look no further than Station Cottage situated on the edge of the pretty and friendly village of Falstone. This Visit Britain Four star graded property once formed part of a disused railway station but has since been refurbished to a very high standard. The practical and airy open-plan layout is all conveniently located at ground floor level and the level of presentation and attention to detail throughout the property are both excellent. Oil central heating ensures guests remain warm and cosy no matter what the weather. A lovely feature of the property is the patio area, once used as the railway platform, and now a focal point for attracting the local birdlife.

Northern England region

The northerly county of Northumberland is a hidden gem of totally unspoilt countryside and wonderful long stretches of pristine sandy beaches. If you want to stretch your legs and breathe in clean country air this is the place for you, with miles of wide open spaces and magnificent views. The county has three distinct sub regions; a coastline stretching some forty miles with quiet sandy beaches and pretty coastal harbour villages. Inland visitors will find dramatic rolling moorland and forests, much of which is National Park and to the south of the region is the famous Hadrian's Wall which runs coast to coast and is now a World Heritage Site. Apart from Northumberland's natural assets the county is steeped in history and has had a turbulent past which is characterised by more than its fair share of castles and ancient hill forts, some of which were built to repel Viking invaders. It was also the scene of the border wars and conflicts between the English and Scots in the 14th-16th century.

Bellingham

The village of Falstone is only ten miles from the bustling village of Bellingham which offers a selection of shops and food & drink outlets. It is also approximately ten miles from the mighty Kielder Reservoir. This is a fantastic centre for windsurfing, fishing, sailing and boat trips and offers some incredible walking and mountain biking trails. The facilities for visitors are superb and a day trip is highly recommended. Bird watchers should not miss out on the chance to view a pair of visiting Ospreys, one of our rarest birds of prey, which are nesting at the site. Further information can be obtained from the Leaplish Waterside Park. Stargazers should seek out the award-winning Kielder Observatory, access to be prearranged, which provides the public with expert advice and advanced equipment for viewing the night-sky. Within an easy drive is the popular market town of Hexham. The range of amenities on offer here is superb and includes several supermarkets, a leisure centre, theatre & cinema complex and a number of specialist shops and food and drink establishments. Hexham is a town steeped in history and visitors are recommended to explore its stunning medieval abbey. Lovers of the ‘turf' should enjoy a visit to Hexham Racecourse. This area of Northumberland was occupied by the Romans and superb remains can be viewed at a number of nearby historic sites such as the roman museum at Housesteads and of course there are sections of the stunning Roman Wall to view- now a designated World Heritage Site. For a change of scene and a city & cultural fix, visitors should try the Gateshead Metro Centre, one of the largest shopping centres in Europe, or the Baltic Centre and The Sage, both located in Gateshead. The former is developing a national reputation for the quality of its collections and was the latest venue for the Turner Prize whilst the award winning Sage hosts a full programme of events throughout the year.
