From the M6 the farmhouse is 30 minutes away along the Hartside Pass (A686), voted one of the AA's top 10 drives in the world. From the A1 the farmhouse is 1 hours drive passing through Hexham Market Town and in our opinion the views are equally breathtaking.
Our nearest train station from the West is Langwathby or Penrith, from the East you could head to Hexham or Newcastle. We are approximately 30-40 minutes taxi ride from Hexham or Penrith.
