Downstairs is an entrance area with cuboards and a new washing machine, separate dryer and large area suitable for storage of bikes or other large items. This upstairs apartment can cater for all ages. Parking is in the courtyard between the old stables and the owners main house. The location lends itself to both weekend breaks and longer stays with many attractions located nearby. We are equally flexible for longer stays such as between house moves.

Located conveniently just off the A69 in the small village of Wylam (famous for its railway heritage, fishing and cycling) you are 2 minutes walk from local shops, chemist, post office, excellent pubs and a café. A bus stop is just outside the drive and the train station is a 10 minute walk providing links to Newcastle (20mins) and the Metrocentre (10mins) or historic Hexham and Corbridge. The bike track along Tyne is immediately accessible. A children's park is 5 minutes walk a way. The river, with many beautiful walks and fishing, is a few minutes walk.

Nearby attractions include: George Stephenson's cottage (short walk), Cherryburn, Prudhoe Castle, Close House Golf course. Easily accessible are Northumberland's many attractions such as Hadrian's Wall, Alnwick Castle, and many others see for links.

"Very comfortable, clean and well appointed flat"

Had very enjoyable stay here. Loved the walks by the river and the local history of Hexham and Prudhoe Castle. An excellent base for watching cricket at Chester le Street. Access very good via road. Places to eat out were more limited than we had expected but did find bar food at The Ship Inn (Mon - Thurs). Also Chinese take away. Used cooker in flat for pizza and chips from local Spar shop.
