Reasons to be Here - There are many reasons why folk come to Hadrian's Wall and there are also many ways to explore it. Some just want to see where it is and what it looks like, whereas others come to discover as much as they possibly can about it - and of course, most folk are restricted by the amount of time they have available, whatever their motivation is.
Single Base - If you only have a day or two to visit the Roman Wall, or you have a bit longer, but don't necessarily want to be tied to walking a specified distance each day, then having a single base to operate from, with a flexible pick-up and drop-off service, is a practical solution - which is what we're able to offer at Roman Stones.
Roman Stones - As the name suggests, is a stone cottage dating back to the C18th, built using stones from the Roman Wall, in the small village that was given the name 'Wall' because of its location and the material that was used to construct it.
Walks - The Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail is on the edge of the village. There are also some fabulous circular country fell and river walks nearby - including Brunton Turret, Planetrees, Heavenfield, Chesters Fort and the Bridge Abutment, all within a one mile radius of the village.
Village Pub - As small as the village may be, it still has a popular Country Inn serving good beer and good food - so dining out can be a tempting option.
3 Miles - The Abbey market town of Hexham is a countryside walk or a five-minute car or taxi ride away, with great pubs and a selection of fine eating places offering a choice of Chinese, French, Thai, Italian, Greek, Polish and Indian cuisine.
Vintage - Roman Stones with its quirky style, may be furnished with an appreciation for times past, but there is consideration for more modern convenience and a practical purpose at the same time. Prime consideration is given for those that make most use of it - ie active, but very likely weary folk, who will probably appreciate a non-fussy simple (shagpile carpet-free zone) place to relax.
Cottage Amenities - apart from what you would normally expect to find in a fully furnished cottage, there is music, radio, board games, TV, wi-fi on superfast broadband, as well as a small library of books and DVDs.
Three Bedrooms - It may not occupy much in the way of ground area, however it certainly makes the most of what it has. So it's not only ideal for a cosy getaway for two, but also able to accommodate a small group of three or four friends, or even a family of five.
Ground Floor - A sitting room with a log-burning stove to lounge in front of, which then leads on to an open plan kitchen & dining area.
First Floor - A single and a twin (that can be made into a double) bedroom, with adjacent bathroom (including washbasin, wc, bath with shower).
Top Floor - A snug double bedroom accessed via a laddered staircase off the twin bedroom.
