This is a roomy, warm, comfortable cottage, thoughtfully equipped with virtually everything you could possibly need. Plenty of space to dry 7 sets of wet boots and waterproofs! (We tested this every day!) Comfy beds, comfy sofas, and a great location, just outside Vindolanda Roman Fort and walking distance from Hadrians Wall.

Stunning location, fabulous house..fantastic to have a dog cage in the property, saved bringing one. Lots of little added extras, the dog loved the garden (though be warned its not secure) and the extra two outside spaces. Lovely comfy beds. We will def be looking to return!

This is a wonderful comfortable, family friendly farmhouse with loads of room, excellent facilities, and in a brilliant location (especially for Roman history buffs with the free access to Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum, not mentioning Hadrian's Wall is a relatively short walk away across country).

Absolutely brilliant holiday home and wow what a location! Perfect to immerse yourself in the history of the landscape.

Our stay at Vindolanda's Codley Gate Farmouse was WONDERFUL! The scenery was beautiful, and the sound of the river flowing by was just magical. We left with a heavy heart as we did not want to leave, but with strong hopes to return again next winter or spring. One of the best feature was the wonderful woodburing stove set in the inglenook fireplaceRead more, with ample supply of wood and coal for our entire stay (7nights). All other needs and wants were top notch, and wish I had more room to write. Hide
