Haltwhistle, Northumberland, England
Stonecrop is an attractive, and listed, stone built property, dating back to 1760. It still possesses much of its original charm and character. It has recently been sensitively renovated, and extended, and the accommodation provides a delightful lounge with log stove (in an inglenook fireplace); an attractive kitchen with underfloor heating and views overlooking the orchard and garden towards the river South Tyne. There is also a small cloakroom and utility area on the ground floor with a study at the front, complete with sofa-bed. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a single room with bunk beds. There is a well equipped bathroom. The Cottage also has wifi throughout.

About the neighborhood
Within easy walking distance of the Cottage in both directions are several good pubs and local landmarks such as Featherstone Castle near the South Tyne river, whose pools entice fishermen and swimmers alike. The scenery is the main draw, coupled with a sense of undisturbed tranquility and peacefulness.

Eals itself is a small hamlet of only about a dozen houses, situated close to the river with wonderful walking opportunities down by the South Tyne or alternatively through the woods or out onto the open fells.

The now dis-used railwayline at the back of the property provides for a popular walk between Haltwhistle and Alston, and the famous and impressive Lambley Viaduct is close by, as is the South Tyne narrow gauge railway whose terminus will soon be at Slaggyford.
