Spotless, spacious, snuggly.
A wonderful warm welcome and the chocolates went down a treat. The apartment is fully equipped all you need is yourself and a change of clothes, perfect location in the centre of Haltwhistle, will definitely use again. Thank you lan! (Sorry about my phone!)

Very Central Location
We were very impressed with the apartment. We contacted the owner prior to arrival to organise key collection. On arrival we werent sure where we had to park so we drove through the little archway to one side and parked round the right hand side (taking care not to block the garages). The place is lovely. Wonderfully comfortable sofa and chair - who doesn't love a recliner after a hard day's walk! The bed was really comfy. I had the best sleep I have had in a long time. The only reason I didn't give it 5 was because the bedroom curtains are thin and let in so much light from both street lighting and early rising sun (4am in the height of summer!). Much as I like to get out and about, a lie in would have been lovely. Kitchen was fine for a bit of holiday catering but there were so many places in and around the town we didn't really need to cook too much, just breakfast. The bathroom opens directly into the kitchen. To be honest I loved the place so much I wish I lived there. Sainsburys is just round the back. The Black Horse pub is just over the road. Takeaway is next door. Chippie just along the way. If you are a member of a union, take your union membership card with you and you can be signed in at the Working Mans Club as a guest. They show various footie matches and on certain nights they have cheap beer! So much to see and do in the area, we will have to try and book for next year when hubby has had his holiday allocated. We managed to get to Edinburgh in a couple of hours, travelling along the A68 through Jedburgh. What a spectacular road. You have to visit Vindolanda. It is an amazing place. All in all this was a wonderful find and somewhere I would readily visit again.

Comfortable retreat
This is an interesting shop conversion. As the main shop window has been retained the blinds have to remain closed otherwise you will be ?on show?This was a real downside for me. Apart from this the accommodation was splendid. Lovely electric recliner leather sofas and a comfy bed. Parking outside is only available after 6pm however Sainsbury's car park is at the back of the accommodation and it is acceptable to park there. There is an excellent chip shop next door and the fabulous Black Bull across the rooms has a log fire and real ale and serves food. We didn?t see the owners at any point. There was a mix up with getting access to the accommodation which left us standing around for about forty five minutes until the owner contacted us and gave us the code for the key safe. I enjoyed my time here and it provides a good base to explore the area.

Spacious accommodation in good location
This is a great place to stay for visiting Hadrian's Wall country and further afield in Northumberland. There is a large living/dining room and all the amenities and furnishings are of a high standard. All the shops you need are close by, including a supermarket only a short walk away. We loved the location and the accommodation.
Marilyn R

The accommodation was really comfortable, a huge squashy leather settee and a leather rocker that we seriously wanted to bring home with us. The bed was comfortable too and the shower efficient. We cooked in every evening bar one and the kitchen had everything we needed. Haltwhistle itself is a charming little market town and we quickly found great walks for to go on with our dog.
