About Housesteads

A restored Victorian farmhouse just a short walk from the ruins of Housesteads Roman Fort.

Housesteads is a beautifully-restored Victorian farmhouse packed with original features. The 19th-century building was once the home of the Thompsons, the then custodians of Hadrian’s Wall.

A short stroll from the holiday home is the ruins of Housesteads Fort. Explore this ancient Roman ruin as well as a particularly impressive section of the wall.

Drive 10 miles from Housesteads and you’ll reach  Allen Banks and Staward Gorge. This stunning corner of Northumberland is ideal for long woodland walks.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
