Situated in a peaceful valley at the confluence of two streams, this site would have been sacred to the Romans and is still a very special place today. With the ramparts of the fort guarding the farm yard to the west and the only Roman milestone left standing intact in it’s original position just behind the cottage, few properties in Britain can have so many traces of Rome around them.
The cottage at Codley Gate Farm has recently been converted to provide superbly appointed 5 star holiday accommodation. There is a fabulous well-equipped spacious dining kitchen, a cosy sitting room with an inglenook style fireplace and three double bedrooms, each with their own luxury en-suite bathroom. Lovely country walks can be enjoyed directly from the cottage. There is a sheltered graveled yard to sit out in on your return and use of the meadow in front of the cottage.
Ideally situated to explore Hadrians Wall Country together with the breath-taking Northumberland countryside and coastline
Setting: Codley Gate Cottage was once the main dwelling house on the site but was converted to a milking parlour when our ‘modern’ farmhouse replaced it in the 1800’s.
In 2008 the barn was sympathetically restored using the best of modern building methods combined with traditional materials to provide a spacious and comfortable holiday home. The valley is rich in British natural wildlife with red squirrels, deer, badgers and bats regularly seen from the cottage. Swallows, owls and curlews are part of the abundant bird life that surrounds Codley Gate.
Area attractions: The list is endless but a few highlights are Vindolanda and the Chesterholme Museum, The Forts along The Wall including Housesteads & Chesters. Kielder Water and Forest park. Country Houses within a short distance include Wallington Hall and Cragside. Coastal Castles at Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Lindisfarne Holy Island. The Alnwick Water Gardens and Castle.
Whether you wish to visit Roman or other historical sights, enjoy the unspoilt countryside with moorland or woodland walks, visit the Northumbrian Coastline or the Lake District or simply curl up with one of our good books or magazines by the fire, there will always be plenty to do here.
The kitchen is well equipped for those who enjoy cooking that special meal, (there are good farm shops, Waitrose and other quality supermarkets to choose from). Alternatively there is a wide choice of places to dine locally.
Our family have enjoyed the peaceful tranquillity of Codley Gate for many years and we now look forward to welcoming guests to this special place. We will do everything we can to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable. Please let us know if there is anything further you need.
