Crescent Cottage
We've just spent a wonderful week at Crescent Cottage, Haltwhistle. The cottage was beautiful and we didn't want for anything. Sue, the owner, was very welcoming and gave us lots of useful information about the area and visitor attractions. Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum is well worth a visit and is only a short drive away. The train stn is a 5 min walk away with easy access to both Carlisle and Newcastle. Would definitely recommend Crescent Cottage and would love to come back again in the future.

Cottage gets better with every visit
We made our 6th visit to Crescent Cottage in August and had a lovely peaceful holiday, even the weather was with us this time. Perfect location for walks to Hadrian's Wall. Lots of good places in Haltwhistle and nearby to eat and drink. Always receive such a good welcome back from Sue & Nick.

Great cottage in a great location
Loved this quirky upside-down house, with its friendly hosts. It's a two minute walk into town, which has plenty of pubs (recommend the Black Bull) and eateries, and a two minute walk to Sainsbury. The two and a half mile walk along the Haltwhistle Burn is beautiful (and flat) and from there is a short walk across a field and down the road to 'Cawfields' where you can join the walk along Hadrian's wall (definitely not flat). The house is well equipped and very comfy, so we enjoyed relaxing evenings after our days out exploring.

Great Upside Down Cottage
Really enjoyed our week at Crescent Cottage. We had a warm week and the upside down cottage meant that the bedrooms were cooler and a good nights sleep assured in a bed with a great mattress. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. Lovely outdoor sitting area overlooking the owners pretty garden. The owners were very welcoming and there was a cake and some milk waiting for us. We will be back - we loved it!!!! Great walking at Hadrian's Wall with an excellent local bus service to several locations along the wall. Haltwhistle has a number of pubs and restaurants as well as local shops and a couple of Supermarkets.

Wonderfully comfortable cottage
Firstly Haltwhistle is a pleasant surprise with good shopping, eating and drinking facilities...in fact just about everything you could need with two supermarkets, pubs, food and takeaways. There is also a railway with a regular train service!! The area has gorgeous scenery with historical sites and towns and superb walking country. Hexham, a short drive to the east is well worth a visit with its abbey, theatre and larger shops. In all the cottage, Haltwhistle and the area make an excellent package and having sampled it we will be back for more.
