School Cottage in Northumberland, a cottage in Northumberland, Durham and the North East: Dining room

Recently renovated stable block with many original features.

Situated in a secluded location, within easy level walking distance of Hexham market town centre, School Cottage is a unique building; a great base from which to explore all that Northumberland has to offer.
The owners recently acquired Orchard Gap and have spent five years restoring both the main school house and the out buildings, one of which is School Cottage. Refurbishment was completed in February 2020. The detached stone & brick cottage was originally built as stables around 1853 and used as school rooms during WWII. With original period features, this recently modernised property has WI-FI, two ensuite bedrooms and beamed ceilings upstairs which adds to the character of the cottage.
The kitchen has an electric fan oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine (with access to a dryer) with ample crockery, glasses and cutlery.
The through lounge contains a sofa and two armchairs and a dining table which sits up to 6 people. There is an original fireplace with electric log burner effect fire. A bookshelf contains a variety of books and games and a collection of DVDs and information on attractions in the area.
Bedroom 1 has a pleasant view over gardens and has a king size bed.
Bedroom 2 overlooks the garden of Orchard Gap, including the original Victorian greenhouse complete with vine and has twin beds that can also be converted to a Super king size when required.
Both bedrooms have ensuite bathroom with walk in shower, heated towel rail, hand basin and toilet.
There are many walks from the cottage itself into the Northumberland countryside as well as into Hexham which is market town with Abbey and other historic buildings to visit. Hexham is also fortunate to have an independent cinema, a swimming pool, Theatre and a music venue, The Vault.
Hexham is famous for its market, wide range of pubs and restaurants (including the well-known Bouchon French restaurant). Nearby are Wallington Hall (National Trust), Belsay Hall (English Heritage), the beautiful village of Corbridge which also has a Roman Camp visitors centre, the Roman Wall (House steads, Chester’s and Vindolanda) and the recently opened visitors centre at The Sill; during summer months a bus service to sites along the Roman wall operates from the railway station in Hexham. Also nearby is the wonderful Northumberland Coast, the Lake District and the vibrant city of Newcastle (30 – 40 mins by train). Many cyclists base themselves in Hexham along with people walking the Roman wall.
The owners can help with arrangements and transport for example from the railway station as they are keen to stress that this cottage is a base from which a car is not essential.
We can provide a cot and high chair if required. There is a handrail to help with steps at the main door. Please contact us for further details.
