Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Situated in the Tyne Valley, Peartree Cotttage is an attractive cottage with a spiral staircase and galleried walkway on the first floor. Well equipped and fully heated, the cottage has a log stove and a high standard of furnishings. It is in a quiet situation but within just a couple of miles from the village of Corbrdige which though small, has great shops and good eating. This area of Northumberland probably has the most to offer visitors.
Just 2.5miles away is the market town of Hexham with its historic Abbey, theatre, cinema, leisure centre and Waitrose. The area is superb for walking (the cottage has walking guides) and steeped in Roman history with not only the Roman Wall, but the sites of Corstopitum and Chesters within striking distance. Bowes Museum is one of the only non-metropolitan museums in the country and Alnwick Castle is home to the Harry Potter movies and the newly created Alnwick Gardens.
For families there is the massive openair museum of Beamish with its tramways, coal mine and old fashioned fully functioning shops. The coast has long empyty beaches and the opportunity to take a boat to the Farne Island to see the seals and bird colonies or visit the hsitoric Holy Island and Grace Darling's lighthouse island.
Just twenty miles away lies the Ciry of Newcastle with its vibrant quayside which is home to the Sage Music Centre and Baltic Art Gallery. It is also excellent for shopping and dining. To the west lies Carlisle and Lake District and the Borders are close with its historic links to Mary Queen of Scots. If you are a bird watcher or a shopper, the north east has it all and Peartree Cottage makes a perfect comfortable and relaxing starting point.

Northern England region
Northumberland is home to England’s most tranquil and inspiring National Park. There are also two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty waiting to be discovered, the Northumberland Coast and the North Pennines. We are also home to Kielder Water & Forest Park.
The vast majority of the remaining sections of Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site can be found in Northumberland, with five of the eight excavated forts and endless stretches of unbroken wall rising and falling over dramatic landscapes.
Hexham Abbey is worth a visit. Parts of the church are more than 1000 years old.
Historic places in Hexham include the Moot Hall and the Old Gaol, which has been converted into a museum devoted to the history of the Border regions of England and Scotland.
Parts of Hadrian's Wall are within easy reach of Hexham. Sites worth visiting include Corstopitum (near Corbridge), Housesteads and Chesters. There is now a long-distance footpath along the entire length of the Wall, starting in Whitehaven and finishing in Wallsend.
The Battle of Hexham levels in 1464 took place just south of the town and the site can be explored on foot
Drop in to the Queen's Hall Arts Centre - a cool theatre, art gallery and cafe.
There is a highly-regarded farmer's market every second and fourth Saturday of the month from 9:00am-1:30pm in the Hexham Market Place in the town centre. Everything is produced within 50 miles of Hexham, and the market has been named the best in the country by the National Farmers Union.
Hexham has a large number of drinking establishments. The Tap and Spile, in the main street of Battle Hill, has regular live music. This includes folk sessions on the third Thursday of every month, to which anyone can bring an instrument or their voice, or simply buy a drink and listen. The session begins between seven and eight o'clock, and usually continues until the pub closes at eleven. A similar session takes place just down the road at the Royal Hotel on the first Wednesday of each month.
For real ale fans the historic Dipton Mill Inn in Hexamshire dating back to the 17th century is a must. It has its own micro brewery with five of its ales sold in the pub, pulled by Geoff, who brews them. It has a sunken garden, real fires and serves home made food. The pub is frequented by the local farming community and travellers. It is at the junction Dipton Mill Road and Guards Lane at NE46 1
There is a music festival in Hexham every autumn.
Other award winning pubs, restaurants and chefs include the Bouchon in Hexham voted best French Bistro in the UK and The Duke of Wellinton at Newton.

Fantastic location, perfect for our short but sweet visit to the Hexham area. We (a family of 4 from Canada, one from London, and one from Sydney, Australia) needed a place to stay for a wedding in Hexham - Peartree Cottage fitted the bill perfectly. The surrounding countryside is unequaled, and our visit to The Rat Inn was lovely, highly recommended. The cottage was clean, well kept and perfect for our needs. We really enjoyed our time there, and would definitely return. The gardens and fish pond were lovely. We left the directions behind in Canada, but in spite of that we still found the cottage - the neighbours were very helpful.

"A lovely well-designed cottage in quiet surroundings"
The cottage is very well furnished and fitted out, with good facilities for cooking and entertaining. It was also a really good location to take a walk straight out of the door, to pick up visitors from Newcastle, and to visit Corbridge, Hadrian's Wall, and lots of other attractions in Northumberland.

"Perfect home from home to prepare for my wedding"
I stayed at Peartree Cottage with my parents and sister in the week leading up to my wedding in nearby Corbridge. The whole experience was fantastic and our wonderful stay made the lead up to the wedding day extra special. From the moment I contacted the owner to make the booking she could not have been more welcoming and helpful, even advising on which bedroom to choose for ease of getting ready on the big day and allowing us to have some photographs taken in her garden.
The cottage is in an idyllic spot tucked away in a peaceful part of Sandhoe and ideally situated for exploring the local area including easy access to Corbridge, Hexham and the Roman Wall. The cottage is beautifully decorated, well appointed for self catering and has two bathrooms which is handy.
I have very happy memories of the cottage - making favours with my mum at the kitchen table, whilst my sister iced our cake and my Dad wrote his speech. It was a very comfortable, happy and peaceful stay and we'd definitely recommend it as a great base for exploring beautiful Northumberland.
