We booked a week at the Drover's Rest while walking Hadrian's Wall. It was an ideal location and we manged to navigate every place from Heddon-on-Wall to Carlisle from here. The bus stop is right downstairs, and several buses stop there, most importantly the AD122. The train station is a short walk from the rental. There is a great pub (The Black Bull) right across the square and several grocery stores within short distance, from the Sainsbury's just out back to the local butcher practically next door. When the Black Bull was closed for dinner, we went up to the Mile Castle Pub on the bus and then had a pleasant walk back down, via the road or the burn. The rental itself is very clean and comfortable. Everything is quite new and kept in good working order ? from the clothes washer to the wifi. One of the greatest features is the bedroom window. You can lie in bed and watch the night sky in apparently one of the darkest places around. In May the sky only grew dark around 11 pm and the sky was lightening by 4 am, so after a big day's walk it was pleasant to fall asleep looking at the stars. The folks who own this place are extremely pleasant and accommodating. Yes, we recommend the Drover's Rest!!!

The apartment was lovely, very well equipped, cosy, comfortable, clean and warm. We found Haltwhistle to be a lovely little market town with very friendly and welcoming people. This property is a good base for some nice walks.

The flat was comfortable, well equipped and situated close to shops. We were easily able to get to the Lake District and many interesting places and walks. The owners were very helpful and pleasant.
