A wonderful week at Scotchcoultard Farm
We had a wonderful stay in Hawthoen Cottage, and were made to feel very welcome. We also very much enjoyed the company of the variety of farm dogs; such sweeties. The swimming pool and games room were a massive bonus; we all swam everyday. The pool kept the children entertained for hours especially when the weather was inclement. A wonderful place to stay, we would recommend to anyone looking for a little bit of everything.
The nearest airport and ferry is Newcastle. Scotchcoulthard is 7 miles from Haltwhistle where there is a train station and bus service. It is recommended to come by car but if you choose to use transport we can help out with lifts and shopping. Waitrose, Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury will deliver. If you wish to book we can put the groceries into the cottage for you.
Hadrian's Wall is 4 miles away and the nearest town of Haltwhistle is 7 miles.
Haltwhistle is a small market town and boasts to be the centre of Britain. it has a 13th Century church with William Morris designed windows.

We are near the Roman Army Museum (8 miles), Vindolanda (6 miles) and Housesteads (5 miles).
Scotchcoulthard is on the edge of Wark Forest which is part of Kielder Forest. For off road driving in a 4x4 you can get through the forest to Wark, Bellingham and on to Otterburn and Kielder,
