Description

A charming character cottage circa 1750s, offering superb upside down accommodation, in the small market town of Haltwhistle, which offers excellent local shops and a real ale pub. The scenic Haltwhistle Burn gorge, which leads up to the Roman wall (2 miles away), is just a 3 minute walk from the cottage. The property has been sympathetically modernised to an extremely high standard, and includes a spacious first floor sitting room with dining area, two comfortable ground floor bedrooms and a sun-trap patio overlooking the owner's walled garden. An ideal base from which to explore Hadrian's Wall, the North Pennines and Hexham, whilst Kielder Water, Alnwick Castle and the Northumberland coast are further away. Haltwhistle is also within easy reach of Carlisle, the Lake District and Dumfries and Galloway. A fabulous property for a relaxing and varied break at any time of year!
Known as the 'Centre of Britain' this small market town is well served by a range of local shop and excellent pubs. There are 3 castles within a few miles of Haltwhistle; Blenkinsop and Bellister are ruins, but the 14th Century Thirlwall Castle is well-preserved and worth a visit. Five miles away is Housteads Roman Fort, the best preserved Roman camp on Hadrian's Wall. Nearby, the parish church of Holy Cross is ancient building, which may date to the 9th century, and within it is a preserved 7th century water stoup thought to have been used by St Paulinus. Haltwhistle was granted a royal charter to hold a market in 1306 and the market is still held today. The town prides itself on being 'The Centre of Britain' and it makes a fantastic location from which to explore Hadrian's Wall country.

‘We made our 6th visit to Crescent Cottage in August and had a lovely peaceful holiday, even the weather was with us this time. Perfect location for walks to Hadrian's Wall. Lots of good places in Haltwhistle and nearby to eat and drink. Always receive such a good welcome back from Sue & Nick.’

‘Loved this quirky upside-down house, with its friendly hosts. It's a two minute walk into town, which has plenty of pubs (recommend the Black Bull) and eateries, and a two minute walk to Sainsbury. The two and a half mile walk along the Haltwhistle Burn is beautiful (and flat) and from there is a short walk across a field and down the road to 'Cawfields' where you can join the walk along Hadrian's wall (definitely not flat). The house is well equipped and very comfy, so we enjoyed relaxing evenings after our days out exploring.’

‘Really enjoyed our week at Crescent Cottage. We had a warm week and the upside down cottage meant that the bedrooms were cooler and a good nights sleep assured in a bed with a great mattress. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. Lovely outdoor sitting area overlooking the owners pretty garden. The owners were very welcoming and there was a cake and some milk waiting for us. We will be back - we loved it! Great walking at Hadrian's Wall with an excellent local bus service to several locations along the wall. Haltwhistle has a number of pubs and restaurants as well as local shops and a couple of Supermarkets.’

‘Firstly Haltwhistle is a pleasant surprise with good shopping, eating and drinking facilities...in fact just about everything you could need with two supermarkets, pubs, food and takeaways. There is also a railway with a regular train service! The area has gorgeous scenery with historical sites and towns and superb walking country. Hexham, a short drive to the east is well worth a visit with its abbey, theatre and larger shops. In all the cottage, Haltwhistle and the area make an excellent package and having sampled it we will be back for more.’

‘Crescent Cottage was perfect for us - in town, but quiet, near to all the shops and the Black Bull Pub. The owner met us at the train station, brought us to the cottage, and settled us most comfortably. She provided a warm welcome and food essentials. Haltwhistle is an excellent site for walking. We also joined the Haltwhistle Wednesday walkers for one of their local walks. I hope to return to Haltwhistle for the Walking Festival. if I do, Crescent Cottage would be my first choice.’

‘I would like to say a big thank you to the owners. On our arrival there was milk in the fridge, a cake and tea and coffee available, which after a long drive was very much appreciated. The cottage could not have been better and the information pack provided was simple to understand and very informative. It made planning the next days activities very easy. We met the owners a few times and they very much helped us get the most out of the area with their suggestions. So all in all we could not be more happy with the service that Sykes provided and the lovely cottage, welcome and advice from the owners. Thanks all for helping to make it a very enjoyable holiday!’

‘The cottage was as Excellent as mentioned. The hosts were most helpful and took the time to advise on not only the cottage but the surrounding area and attractions. They took great pride in the presentation of their very clean and comfortable cottage but also the outstanding countryside which can be explored at length.’
