Holiday at a World Heritage Site 

Within this small (but impressive) portfolio, there's three holiday cottages available to rent. They're situated alongside the iconic World Heritage Site, Hadrian’s Wall. It's the perfect place for a getaway and to admire the stars - especially as it's within Europe's largest Dark Sky Park.
