Coanwood Old Chapel, Coanwood
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Enjoying panoramic, open views over the gorgeous countryside of west Northumberland is Coanwood Old Chapel. First constructed in the latter part of the 19th century for use as a Wesleyan Chapel, the building has been sensitively and carefully refurbished to provide stunning self-catering holiday accommodation that exudes light, style and comfort. The property constitutes a vibrant mix between the old and the new and guests will adore the retention and incorporation of some of the building's original features such as the Sunday School lectern into the current design. The bulk of the main living areas have been concentrated within the ground floor layout making this three-bedroomed property a convenient and practical holiday base for the majority of guests. Families with young children should find the old chapel particularly appealing as in addition to the enclosed garden complete with patio area and outdoor furniture, the first floor has a second lounge/games room which includes a football table. The old chapel is set within a lovely rural setting yet is only five miles from the friendly village of Haltwhistle and its good range of amenities which includes a sports centre and outdoor swimming pool.

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.
This area of Northumberland is particularly well served for walking and cycling opportunities. There are numerous trails to explore such as the South Tyne challenge which is approximately 15km in length. Further west is the stunning North Pennines, which is also an established hill-walking region and officially designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. To the east lies the popular market town of Hexham. The range of amenities on offer here is superb and includes several large, 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 spend a few hours at its stunning medieval abbey. Lovers of the ‘turf' should enjoy a visit to Hexham Racecourse. West Northumberland was occupied by the Romans and superb remains can be viewed at a number of nearby historic sites such as the roman museums at nearby Vindoland and Housesteads, and sections of the stunning Roman Wall, now a designated World Heritage Site, can be inspected at numerous points along the way. Bird Lovers may wish to visit the mighty Kielder Reservoir to the north. The facilities here for day-trippers are superb and over the summer months full information on how to view a pair of visiting Ospreys, one of our rarest birds of prey, 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. Those needing a city or cultural fix should visit 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.

"Fantastic new year break!"
As a group of 4 adults and 4 children we spent 3 fantastic nights over the new year at the old chapel. When we arrived we found it even better than expected, the place has lots of character and the rooms are all a good size,the bedrooms are great and the beds really comfy. The living room has lots of seating and has a wood burner which gives out plenty of heat. The whole place is fully equiped including the kitchen which has everything you could possibly need, cutlery, pans, utensils etc. Upstairs there is a mezzanine with a tv, table football and a selection of games and books and has great veiws over the countryside from all windows.You can use the facilities of the campsite over the road where there is a childrens playground and a bar and shop. The owners are really helpful when booking with advice on the place and the area and i cannot reccomend the place highly enough and will be returning again.
