Positioned in the scenic countryside near to Hadrians Wall, and the village of Bardon Mill, adjoining the owners’ property, although privacy is assured, and was previously lived in by Catherine Cookson, while she wrote the Mallen series.

Other attractions in the area include Housesteads Fort which is within a short distance from the property and offers plenty of scenic walks or Hareshaw Linn waterfall in Northumberland National Park. On a clear night, with the dark skies you can see thousands of stars, recognise constellations such as Orion and maybe even see the International Space Station as it orbits the earth.

Access this property through the door which is designed to look like a garage door, and step into the hallway. Once through the porch, you will find yourself in the welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area has comfy sofa, wood burner and TV/DVD. The dining area has seating for two, whilst the bright kitchen area offers everything that guests will need to prepare their favourite meals, including an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment and microwave.

The staircase leads up to the first floor, to the spacious super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made up as a twin on request) and en-suite WC.

Outside the property is a south facing sheltered private decking area and small garden, where you can sit at your leisure and enjoy a sunrise with your morning coffee. There is parking available to the front of the property for one car.

Absolutely fantastic stay in a cracking location. So peaceful, the views are great it was just what we needed to relax after lockdown. Very easy to find and in close proximity to Hadrians wall, twice brewed pub and Bardon mill. The owners were very welcoming and the home made bread was excellent.

The Hill Top Hideaway is a delightfully quite and well-situated cottage to explore Hadrian's wall and the Hexham area of Northumberland. Maurice and Anne have thought about their visitors and provide a lovely welcome basket of breakfast essentials for your arrival.

Low ceilings could be a problem for taller people and water temperature was dangerously hot - the owner did warn us about this. Lovely peaceful location,relaxing and close to lots of Roman sites and walks,owners were helpful but not intrusive.

The only issues is that there is no dining table so you have to eat at the breakfast bar, and the ceiling upstairs is low so anyone over 5'10" tall is likely to bump their head
