a beautifully appointed and comfortable cottage in perfect location.
Owner Rachel was most accommodating and friendly and we were warmly welcomed by Jill on arrival. Hawkwell is an oasis of calm if you just want to chill. Ideal situation for exploring Roman Wall, walking, cycling and attractions of rural Northumberland but with easy access to decent eating places, pubs and even Newcastle City centre. Something for everyone.
Thank you - so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hawkwell.

Our return to Northumberland.
We came to Hawkwell House in early Spring. The hedgerows and gardens were full of blossom and even the weather was good.
The cottage is a wonderful place to stay, warm and comfortable. It is beatifully equipped and furnished and we quickly felt felt very much at home. We were met with wine and biscuits and a warm welcome by Jill and John...and Alfie.
Hawkwell Is an excellent situation for seeing much of the north East easily. We visited Bamburgh and the coast,Durham and Beamish,Rothbury and Keilder Water ,Woodhorn and the Pitman Painters
We are very much looking forward to coming back.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back.
Gorgeous cottage in lovely part of the country!
This is an immaculately presented cottage with luxury finishes like plush towels and nice bedding. The cottage has everything you need and the owner kindly left basics such as tea bags, sugar, washing up liquid etc and even a bottle of wine and cookies. We love Northumberland and this was a great base to explore it from.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank You.
A little corner of paradise
Hawkwell cottage is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay and a real 'find'
If you are looking to stay in 5 star accommodation then look no further. It is maintained to the highest standard, superbly equipped, spotless and very comfortable. It is so cosy especially when it's cold outside boasting not just one but 2 multi fuel stoves.
The setting of the cottage is idyllic in the hamlet of Hawkwell which joins onto the picturesque village of Stamfordham. If you enjoy a game of tennis guests can play on the court of the main Hawkwell house. The cottage has an entirely separate garden and entrance making it private to the main house.
There is a pedestrian access into Stamfordham over 2 tiny foot bridges making a lovely walk past the church which leads to the Swinburne Arms, a friendly traditional pub with a recently opened village shop. A great place to stop! There are endless activities and excursions close by and the cottage has an excellent array of suggestions for days out/activities and dining.
I really can't recommend this beautiful property highly enough.
