Nestled in the shadows of Vindolanda Fort in the centre of Hadrians Wall Country
Wonderful warm welcome, beautiful cottage with absolutely everything you need.
Family trip to Northumberland
A lovely cottage in a fabulous location.
We had a great week.
Property is spacious and well appointed,we were only two but it could easily accommodate six without feeling cramped. But still cosy without being too chintzy. Location is great with a lot the major local attractions on the doorstep or a short walk away.
A perfect Winter break
We stayed over the Christmas period and the cottage was absolutely perfect. Beautiful Christmas decorations and a lovely welcome in the kitchen with beautiful flowers, wine, freshly made mince pies and selection of cheeses, such a lovely touch to kickstart our break.
The cottage is perfect situated in a beautiful stunning valley but not too far from local amenities. The Vindolanda museum and site opposite were wonderful to visit and free entry as guests of the cottage. Colin was most helpful with the booking and with all communications. We stayed with 2 children and elderly mother and we all had a fantastic time. We will be visiting again.
The property is a great size and is full of character. It's in a fantastic spot.
The only downside was the mould and mildew in all of the bathrooms. This appears to be caused by poor ventilation/ poor fans and lack of thorough cleaning.
Lovely spot to stay
Lovely cottage, beautiful setting close to lots of wonderful places to visit. Our third time at Codley Gate - thank you to the Galloways!
Codley Gate Cottage is situated in a former farm yard amongst a cluster of old traditional farm buildings and the Farmhouse. It is approached via a quiet access lane (the old Stanegate Roman road) and is immediately adjacent to the World Heritage Site of Vindolanda and the Chesterholme Museum. Codley Gate is set partially in the Northumberland National Park and is just under one mile below, what is considered to be, the most dramatic section of Hadrian's Wall. The village of Bardon Mill just over a mile down the valley. The nearest town is Haltwhistle, 4 miles to the west and the award winning market town of Hexham is 14 miles east. The city of Newcastle Upon Tyne with it's lively Quayside and Baltic Art Centre is 35 miles to the east, whilst historic Carlisle 'Gateway to the Lakes' is 24 miles to the west.
Other Activities: excellent walking and bird watching country directly from the cottage
