Finechambers is an absolute must for anyone wanting to enjoy the peace and beauty of the rugged Northumberland countryside. Nestled on the edge of a small hamlet, the property is a short drive from one of the most iconic pieces of history: Hadrian's Wall.
There a plenty of routes for keen ramblers to explore and Catherine, the owner, was on hand to give advice before we set out to journey around the area.
A short drive from Finechambers is Hexham - a medium-size town with supermarkets, fuel stations, cafes, restaurants, etc. Newcastle is about 20 miles away; another easy drive if you want to experience the toon.
The service and facilities at Finechambers put my own humble house to shame! My partner and I were astounded to find that Catherine had, in our opinion, catered for just about every eventuality. I'm a ground coffee fan and was delighted to see a huge selection of French presses and cafetières on the kitchen window ledge.
A log burner dominates the living room and it became to the focal point of our evenings. I honestly can't think of anything more a holiday destination could offer.
We highly recommend this holiday destination.
We booked months ago due to family event nearby, what a fabulous, well thought out place to stay. We were greeted with fresh flowers, flapjack, chocolate cake and six of the best eggs ever tasted. The owner David popped in to check on us Friday evening to make sure we had everything we needed.
Loved the layout, twin beaded room upstairs bathroom and double bed on the gallery, twin bedded room and bathroom on the ground floor. The main room a great space for families, we even lit the wood burning stove as the weather was not great for June.
Would not hesitate to recommend this little gem to anyone, in the most peaceful location with lovey cottage garden.
Thank you David and Catherine.
Ideal place tucked away in a tiny village called Juniper. Plenty of room for 6. Lovely well equipped property with everything you need. Welcomed with homemade goodies and fresh eggs. A lovely touch.
We absolutely loved Finechambers Chapel. So much thought has gone into making sure this cottage has everything a guest can need and want. It's beautifully furnished and immaculately clean and the roaring fire helped to make it the perfect place for a cosy getaway with friends. The surrounding countryside is stunning and there are many different walks to go on with lots of pubs to visit. I'll definitely be returning!
Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Catherine is so hospitable and goes out of her way to make you feel at home. From the fresh flowers and eggs to the homemade flapjack, chocolate cake & jam. The chapel is such a peaceful haven yet only a 10 minute drive to the thriving market town of Hexham. Certainly a place that we hope to visit again.
We absolutely LOVED our stay at The Chapel. The house is kitted out with everything that you could possibly need and the bedrooms are lovely. Catherine could not have been a more helpful host and the local area is absolutely stunning- lots of good walks nearby. I went with a group of 6 and there was more than enough room- we will definitely be returning!
Very friendly owner who provided us with homemade cake and flap jack and had the fire roaring for our arrival. The log burning stove gave a very homely feel, logs were supplied free of charge (there were also radiators for those not used to real fires). Comfortably slept 6 adults on our annual girly get together. Ample space in all the rooms, with well appointed kitchen. Lovely garden to the front for when the weather is better with hedges that are full of bird life. There are some nice walks locally along the river. Short 4-5 miles drive into Hexham. Overall a perfect weekend get away, highly recommended.
