Chester’s fort at Chollerford is the nearest point of Hadrian’s Wall; it has the remains of the finest military bath house in Britain and is just a 10 minute drive. To the west are the major forts of Vindolanda, Housesteads and Sycamore Gap near Steel Rigg, a lonely tree standing in a dip along the Wall. This location can be seen in the movie Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Belsay with its neo-classical hall, 14th century castle and delightful gardens is 8 miles. The National Trust property of Wallington Hall and the historic towns of Corbridge and Hexham are within 10 miles.

(ABOVE) De-Vaux (ABOVE) Howard House

(TOP & ABOVE) De Brotherton

Located next to the 12th Century Lanercost Priory and just 400 yards from the World Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall, these magnificent self catering cottages were developed in 2009 by the Howard family of Naworth Castle. All the cottages have the “wow factor” with many period features remaining coupled together with contemporary styling, en-suite facilities, finished and furnished to an exceptionally high standard. There is a highly acclaimed tearoom serving excellent food, a farm and gift shop and an art gallery featuring work created by local artists on site. Lanercost is situated in the tranquil Irthing Valley and is an exceptionally important historic site, its focal point being the 1169 Augustine Priory. The Romans lived there. William Wallace burnt it down. A dying Edward 1st, the hammer of the Scots, stayed for 6 months in 1306/7 in what turned out to be his last campaign, bringing with him the seals of England which technically made it the capital of England. The priory grew under the patronage of the Dacre family of Naworth until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539. The monastic ruins still exist and the site, run by English Heritage, can be visited. In 1859, George Howard, 7th Earl of Carlisle instructed the architect Antony Salvin to construct a brand new Abbey Farm steading around two large courtyards. It is these buildings that have been transformed, by a descendant, the present owner of Naworth, into this wonderful destination. Lanercost is located 13 miles northeast of the Border town of Carlisle and 5 minutes drive from the pretty cobbled market town of Brampton. The town has a good selection of shops selling locally produced food, bakeries, antiques, distinctive crafts, old fashioned pubs, cafes and a wine bar. These state of the art cottages are perfectly situated to explore the north of England and the south of Scotland. The cottages take their names from powerful families connected with Lanercost. Although they are all furnished and equipped to the same excellent standard, they are all individual.

North Lodge is a quaint stone built lodge standing in a 1/3 of an acre cottage garden with picturesque walks from the front door. The original part of the lodge was built in the late 1800s and was a former lodge house to Close House Estate. It is directly on the path of Hadrian’s Wall and the site of the Hadrian’s Wall Vallum, the ditch where most artefacts are discovered. With this in mind it is highly likely that the lodge was built using stone from Hadrian’s Wall itself. Heddon on the Wall is a 5 minute walk, where there are two village pubs, ideal for an evening stroll along for a meal. Simple access to the A69, which runs west to Carlisle and east to Newcastle upon Tyne means exploring the region could not be easier. Just a 20 minute drive will take you to the quayside at Newcastle upon Tyne noted for a vibrant cosmopolitan lifestyle or the Gateshead Metro Centre with over 330 shops. This is a perfect retreat to unwind after exploring the many nearby Roman Forts including Vindolanda, Housesteads and Chesters. Walking, fishing and golf all available locally. Accommodation all on one level Spacious lounge with open fire set in stone fireplace and door out to the pretty cottage garden. One step down to well equipped breakfasting kitchen. Double bedroom.

Just 3 miles from Beadnell and one of the finest stretches of coastline in England, this cottage has been expertly created from part of an old farmsteading. It takes its name from an ancient field.

The area also has several excellent golf courses within a few miles drive and the pursuits of horse riding and sea angling are also catered for locally.

* By Arrangement with Owner

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. WHEN YOU MAKE A RESERVATION REQUEST WITH US (WHETHER BY POST, TELEPHONE OR EMAIL), THESE CONDITIONS ARE DEEMED TO HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED BY YOU.

Once a booking has been confirmed by the Agent it can only be changed to another date, providing the property is available and the Owner is agreeable to the change. An administration fee of £20.00 + VAT will be payable. The holiday can only be changed to another property by treating the original booking as a cancellation.

Definitions Agent means Northumbria Byways Limited (Company Number 5235173) whose registered office is at Maryholme, Hallbankgate, Brampton, Cumbria CA8 2NE. Booking means the reservation of the Property by the Holidaymaker. Booking Conditions means these terms and conditions. Deposit means: (a) One third of the Rental Charge (b) Full payment if the holiday is due to commence within six weeks. Holidaymaker means the person or persons making the Booking. Initial Payment means the payment of the Deposit. Additional Fees means any fees payable by the Holidaymaker other than the Rental Charge, including credit card handling fees, heating supplements, pet charges and linen charges. Property means the accommodation for which a Booking is made. Property Owner means the owner of the Property. Rental Charge means the total rental charge payable in respect of the Booking. Reservation Request means a request to make a Booking in the form of a completed holiday booking form (whether submitted via post, email or website) or a telephone booking. Short Break means a holiday for a duration of less than seven nights. (minimum three nights).

Other Cancellations In the event of the Agent being unable to arrange the holiday accommodation requested by the Holidaymaker, or if the Property becomes unavailable for whatever reason, the Agent will endeavour to arrange alternative accommodation for the Holidaymaker of an equivalent type and standard in a similar location. If the Holidaymaker has paid any money in respect of a Property and that Property subsequently becomes unavailable, the Agent shall refund all monies paid by the Holidaymaker. The Agent is not liable for any costs associated with alternative accommodation, which must be paid by the Holidaymaker. Save as set out above, the Agent shall have no liability for the cancellation or alteration of a Booking.

Role of Northumbria Byways Limited The Agent acts as agent for the Property Owner to take and arrange Bookings. The Agent does not own or manage the Property but reserves the right to refuse any Booking. Once the Initial Payment has been made and a Holiday Confirmation has been issued by the Agent, a legally binding contract shall exist between the Holidaymaker and the Property Owner pursuant to which the Property Owner will make the Property available for the period set out in the Booking. For the avoidance of doubt, the Agent shall not be a party to such contract. The Contract shall be subject to these Booking Conditions and any other special conditions made known to the Holidaymaker at the time of the Booking. The Agent accepts no liability for any defects or unavailability of the Property or any other problems with the holiday. The Holidaymaker’s right of action (if any) shall be against the Property Owner and not the Agent. Bookings and Payment Following receipt of a Reservation Request the Agent shall check the availability of the Property. If the Property is available for the Holiday, the Agent shall reserve the Property for an initial period of seven days. The Holidaymaker must make the Initial Payment to the Agent within these seven days. Unless payment is received within these seven days, the reservation will be cancelled. Upon receipt of the Initial Payment, the Agent will issue a Holiday Confirmation to complete the Booking. The Balance of the Rental Charge must be paid by the Holidaymaker to the Agent no later than six weeks prior to the commencement of the holiday (the Agent shall endeavour to inform the Holidaymaker of the due date at the time of the Booking). The prices stated on the Agent’s website and in the Agent’s brochure are cash prices in pounds sterling. The Agent incurs charges from credit card companies when the Holidaymaker pays by credit card, and therefore a 2% charge will be made for each credit card transaction. Any charges raised against the Agent by its bank for handling dishonoured cheques, bank transfers or any other payments, must be reimbursed by the Holidaymaker to the Agent within seven days of the Agent’s request to do so. All payments must be made in pounds sterling. The Agent reserves the right to correct any error in advertised and/or confirmed prices. Booking Details Immediately upon receipt of the Holiday Confirmation from the Agent, the Holidaymaker should check the details and notify the Agent of any mistakes/errors made by the Agent as soon as possible and in any event within seven days; no changes can be made to the Booking after this time. The Agent reserves the right to charge a holiday booking amendment fee of £20.00 + VAT to administer/ correct any error by the Holidaymaker. Cancellation by the Holidaymaker The Holidaymaker should notify the Agent immediately in writing if he/she wishes to cancel the Booking. The cancellation only takes effect when the Agent has received written confirmation from the Holidaymaker. If the Booking is cancelled after the balance of the Rental Charge becomes payable, such balance shall remain payable notwithstanding cancellation. Your cancellation will be acknowledged by the Agent in writing. You are still liable for any outstanding balance on the due date. The Agent will endeavour to re-let your holiday. If the Agent is successful in re-letting the holiday for the entire period originally booked it shall refund all monies paid (whether deposit or otherwise) less an administration fee of £20.00 + VAT. If the Agent is only successful in re-letting a proportion of the period originally booked it shall refund that proportion of monies paid (whether deposit or otherwise) less an administration fee of £20.00 + VAT. If the Agent is unsuccessful in re-letting the holiday then all monies paid shall be forfeited and any outstanding balances will still be payable on the due date. The Agent strongly recommends the Holidaymaker has some form of insurance.

Brochure Accuracy To the best of the Agent’s knowledge the details provided by the Owners relating to their Property/ies described in the Agent’s brochure and website were correct at the time of printing. Property descriptions and prices may be subject to change. Upon becoming aware of any material inaccuracies or price changes in any published description of the Property or material changes to the Property, the Agent shall endeavour to correct them in future publications and inform the Holidaymaker. The Agent reserves the right to amend any inaccuracies including description, services and pricing. If the alterations prove unacceptable to the Holidaymaker then alternative accommodation will be arranged or a full refund of monies paid will be given.
