The Northumberland market town of Hexham is full of historic haunts and contemporary claims to fame. Our holiday cottages near Hexham showcase an equal quota of period character and modern touches.
Hexham Abbey sits at the heart of town with foundations dating to the 7th century. The winding streets that meander to and from the abbey steer visitors to England’s inaugural purpose-built prison Hexham’s Old Gaol. Not for the faint hearted, its four floors of gruesomely detailed history present the most notorious of Hexham attractions. On a lighter note, a lively arts scene ensures there’ll likely be a performance to take in at Queen’s Hall Art Centre opposite the abbey. For fans of visual arts, there are many galleries nestled in between independent shops and boutiques surrounding a daily market in the age old Shambles.
Beyond this fascinating town, Hadrian’s Wall and Kielder Park are obvious days out brimful with activity. Secure yourself a holiday cottage in Hexham to take it all in.
