Heavenfield cottage is a beautifully renovated farm building conversion offering luxury 5* self catering accommodation for two on top of Hadrian’s Wall itself!

We stayed here a couple of years ago and we absolutely loved it! We literally slept on Hadrian’s Wall!

This stunning cottage offers stylish and contemporary accommodation for couples wanting to explore Northumberland National Park in style.

Wonderfully spacious, this cottage offers a lovely open-plan living space with a cosy well equipped kitchen and dining area.

The stylish bedroom is large and comfortable and the WiFi is excellent!

Last but not least: great shower room!

The owners, Lorraine and John, are warm, friendly and very hospitable.

They maintain the cottage to a high standard, and you’ll find tea and cake ready to tuck into on arrival.


But what we love best is its location!

The cottage sits on St. Oswald’s Farm, a working 217-acre hill farm. It boasts some of the best views of the Hadrian’s Wall area and has fantastic walking opportunities.

From the cottage you can venture out west on the Hadrian Wall Path towards Housesteads Roman Fort.

This coast-to-coast path across northern England explores a dramatic and diverse region – with the famous World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall at its heart.

Passing Roman settlements and forts, there’s ancient history and great views every step of the way.

The cottage is situated near the village of Wall and is only 5 miles from the historic market town of Hexham.

Hexham one of the hidden treasures of the beautiful Tyne Valley.

Try one of the Tyne Valley Train Trails linking Corbridge with Hexham, Haydon Bridge, Bardon Mill and Haltwhistle railway stations.

While staying in Northumberland we explored the St Oswald’s Way.

St Oswald’s Way

St Oswald’s Way is a long-distance walking route, exploring some of the finest landscapes and fascinating history of Northumberland.

The route links some of the places associated with St. Oswald, the King of Northumbria in the early 7th Century.

From Holy Island (Lindisfarne) in the north, St. Oswald’s Way follows the stunning Northumberland Coast AONB, before heading inland across beautiful countryside to Heavenfield and Hadrian’s Wall in the south.

A distance of 97 miles (156 km).

You will find castles, coastline, islands, scenic river valleys, hills, attractive villages, forest and farmland on your walk.

The final section of St. Oswald’s Way starts at the attractive village of Kirkwhelpington and runs southwards through picturesque rolling farmland.

It ends at St Oswald’s Church, almost next to Heavenfield Cottage.

At Heavenfield, Oswald erected a wooden cross under which he prayed before defeating the Welsh and Mercian forces in a decisive battle that allowed him to take control of Northumbria.
