Comments from previous visitors:

Absolutely lovely cottage and great owners. Made us feel very welcome. Thank you.
Mrs Freeman, Hereford, December 2011

A great location with easy access to Newcastle, where we did the Great North Run. A comfortable cottage which had everything we needed. A warm welcome from the owners who showed us around and a lovely personal touch with the card and flowers.
Mr Pothecary, Nottingham, September 2011

It was stress free. After a warm welcome by the owners, it felt very comfortable and relaxed. Great information file. A great place with easy access to main roads to be able to visit lots of places. Didn't have to worry about anything.
Miss Read, Newent, August 2011

Very nice property and we were impressed with the reception from the owners and the refreshments and flowers on arrival. The cottage is central to the beach, countryside and the city so a great place to stay!
Mrs Firth, Boston, August 2011

Rural tranquility with good public transport access to Newcastle (30mins) and Hexham. Quiet but with village pubs/restaurants near-by. On Hadrian's Wall, it's an unbeatable hub for Alnwick, Beamish, Cragside - city and seaside all within an hour by car.
Mr Burrill, Fareham, June 2011

The house was the best we have stayed in and is in an excellent location for walking and the bus service into Newcastle.
Mr Scott, Lincoln, May 2011

Just a lovely, central location and the perfect, relaxing holiday home. It also seemed to have a more 'personal' feel than some places.
Mrs Hardy, York, April 2011

A beautiful house, warm, cosy and a home from home! Easy access to road links for Newcastle city centre, the countryside and coast.
Mrs Burrows, Portsmouth, January 2011

We had a great time at Hadrian Cottage. It is very well presented and in an excellent, easy to find location, close to a lovely pub, The Swan. We would highly recommend it to anyone wanted to explore Hadrians Wall and the North East. It is only a 20min drive from Newcastle. The owners were very friendly and provided us with everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

More about the area:

Heddon on the Wall lies on the line of Hadrian's Wall, a section of which is still visible at the edge of the village. Once the centre for quarrying and coal mining, this lovely village is now surrounded by farms and open countryside. The village is located on the side of the old "Military Road" which once formed part of the main road from Newcastle to Carlisle. Just along the road is the village of Wylam, the birthplace of George Stephenson, one of the early pioneers of the railway industry, and also the lovely town of Corbridge, which was a traditional crossing point over the Tyne and has history dating back to Roman times. Today, the town is noted for its array of small shops. Just a little further on is the Tyne Valley town of Hexham with its Abbey, Old Gaol and old town centre. The vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its many pubs, shops, eateries, museums and other attractions is within easy driving distance and has something for everyone. Heddon-on-the-Wall is an ideal base for exploring this part of Northumberland.

Hadrian's Wall Country's spellbinding scenery is largely unchanged since Roman times, with 2000 years of history. The wall itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site crossing northern England for around eighty miles. Built as a Roman frontier in just over six years, many stretches remain intact especially within the Northumberland National Park. In fact, some of the most dramatic parts are found here such as the section from Cawfields to Walltown Quarry, a modest drive from hadrian Cottage.

You can plan your day at the Once Brewed Tourist Information Centre near Hexham, choosing from a number of excellent walking routes, whether you intend to cover as many miles as possible along the Hadrian's Wall National Trail Path, or are looking for shorter, circular options. Enjoy a family ramble to Sycamore Gap, home to the tallest remains of the Wall and also the famous tree from blockbuster, 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves'.

Cycling is another great way to take in both the natural and archaeological views, with a variety of long distance routes - the Hadrian's Cycleway, Sea to Sea, Reivers, Pennine Cycleway and the National Byway.

This mighty 'necklace' is studded with Roman 'jewels' like Housesteads, Chesters and Vindolanda. These fascinating forts can be explored, many offering interactive displays, Roman artefacts, special family events and authentic battle re-enactments.
