Cottage Holiday - with fishing

There are also fishing opportunities in the area, we have our own stretch of private fishing on the river Wear which is available to our visitors. The river fishing season runs from 21st March each year until 30th October. A licence is required and can be arranged. There are several good, well stocked reservoirs within a 20 minute drive, details can be provided.

Ideas for the rest of the family

If you love fishing and the wife doesn't why not suggest a pamper day at a local spa, ask for prices when booking.

Horse riding and trekking centres - we have many contacts for you to pre book.

There are several good garden centres with excellent lunch facilities, contact details available when booking.

The Metro Centre or Newcastle's Eldon Square is a great shopping day out. And the market towns of Barnard Castle and Hexham (and nearby Corbridge)provide a good range of independant shops.
