    Old Hexham still stands

    Walking in Hexham can feel like walking in the Northumberland of old. Here, 1,300-year-old abbeys tower overhead and stone-faced Gothic gaols lurk ominously on the corners. It's been a market town as long as anyone can remember, and it still bustles with a certain workaday charm. Hearty farmers' markets still take place beneath the 14th-century outline of Moot Hall, pubs still ooze classic English character. That said, there's really one main draw that keeps folks flocking to Hexham holiday rentals – the proximity to UNESCO-tagged Hadrian's Wall.

    Unravelling Hexham's history

    Before pulling on the walking boots or hopping in the car to see the meandering stones of Hadrian's Wall, it can be hugely rewarding to spend some time getting to grips with the long history of Hexham itself. Simply wandering the streets should help. They are lined with everything from Augustinian churches to the rough-stone Hexham Old Gaol. You can delve into those buildings to discover haunting cloisters and exhibits that chronicle the warring tale of the Northumberland region. There's also a fantastic Saturday market on the main square, twice each month.

    Walking the wall in Hexham

    One attraction looms large over all others in Hexham. It can be found wiggling over the Northumberland hills just to the north of town, a UNESCO site, and one of the UK's most iconic relics of the Roman age – Hadrian's Wall. Chesters Roman Fort and Museum is a fine place to begin exploring the unearthed barracks buildings that dot the whole length of the bulwarks. A little to the west is the Housesteads Roman Fort, with ancient toilets and centurion weaponry. Then there's Vindolanda, with its ruined bathhouse excavations.

    Eerie rains or warming sun in Hexham

    Hexham can get wet and cold – like, sub-zero cold – in the winter, but then there are plenty of cosy little English cottage-style Hexham holiday rentals to pick from to keep you snug as the snows fall outside. In fact, some people love to walk the hills of the Northumberland National Park during months like December and January, finding them empty and wild. Most people choose to hike along Hadrian's Wall in the summer, though. The sun shines a lot between June and August and the days are more likely to be dry.

    Hexham – on the edge of the park

    Lovers of the great English outdoors will be pleased to find loads of Hexham holiday rentals dotting the countryside to the north of town. That's not only where Hadrian's Wall goes up and down over the hills, but also where the vast Northumberland National Park starts. You can wax down the walking boots and trek into the tranquillity of the countryside to discover landscapes of wooded valleys and rocky bluffs, spear-like trees – check the Kielder Forest – and blustery crags, all criss-crossed by famous hiking trails, like the Pennine Way.
