Flexible changeover dates and short breaks starting on the day you choose are available from October to April. (Friday Changeover Day during summer season, May to Sept)

The chapel offers first class accommodation, with two ground floor en-suite bedrooms, tastefully furnished with antiques, and overlooking the river.

Outside, the chapel is in a beautiful riverside location, with a secluded rear garden which catches the daytime & evening sun, and is perfect for barbecues & al fresco dining. The rear garden overlooks open fields, often with the cows, sheep & deer watching you, & has a patio area with table, chairs, & Webber barbecue. Play boules on the lawn & then watch the sun set over the woods with a glass of something cool! You might even be lucky enough to see the badgers at dusk. Do some star gazing with the telescope you'll find in the "mini summerhouse". On a clear night the night sky looks like a glass dome, with no light pollution. Magical! There is also a small sitting area to the side of the chapel which is an afternoon suntrap, & a seating area beside the burn for a relaxing read, with the calming sound of trickling water.

Whatever you fancy doing, star gazing, sunset drinks, waterside reading, family barbecue, private sunbathing, the Riverside Chapel is a special place which offers a home from home, in a peaceful central location, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

The Northumberland region

Northumberland is steeped in history, with a "castle every mile", Hadrian's Wall, historic Hexham & Corbridge, Alnwick gardens & castle, Beamish museum, & Durham on your doorstep, you will never be short of things to do during your stay. Northumberland is known as "Land of the big skies" due to the dramatic, ever changing scenery & wide open, sparsely populated countryside. A great place to get away from it all.

Hexham

Juniper is a tranquil village, close to historic Hexham & Corbridge, with their shops, cafes & restaurants, theatre & cinema. With 2 great local pubs within a couple of miles its a great central spot from which to explore Northumberland.

Hexham is a bustling market town with an award winning Farmers' Market, Old Gaol, ancient Abbey dating back to the 11th century, yet with modern facilities - a leisure centre, cinema, theatre, shops, restaurants, cafes, park with children's playground, & Hexham is also on the main train line into Newcastle with a 1/2 hourly service.

Corbridge, with it's winding lanes of shops & Cafes & riverside walks along the Tyne offers a lovely day out. The Roman Wall museum is well worth a visit. Hadrian's Wall is only a few miles away, with Housestead Fort showing how the Romans used to live, Vindolanda, with rare Roman finds, & of course the beautiful wall itself to walk along in spectacular scenery.
