Falshaw home swap

A recently renovated property in the quiet, pretty village of Wall, 4 miles North of the market town, Hexham. The house has a bright modern interior (including newly fitted kitchen and bathrooms) and mature secluded gardens. The bedrooms also enjoy long views out over the Tyne valley. The accommodation comprises 3 double bedrooms, one single bedroom, a large kitchen/dining room with separate utility, 2 bathrooms and 2 reception rooms - one of which has a sofa that can open out to a sofa bed if required.
The house is heated by oil central heating, with an open fire in the lounge.

We would be happy to exchange with a couple or family with children, however should say that although we have had friends and family with children of various ages stay with us, we would not say our house is entirety 'child-proofed'. We also do not have a TV, but there are plenty of books and WIFI can be used for those with laptops/iPads etc.

About the location

The village of Wall takes its name from Hadrian's Wall, which is just a few minutes walk from the property. We are situated at the top of the village, off the main street. Wall village is a mostly stone built conservation area, with a village green, large playing field and local pub/hotel 'The Hadrian'. This part of Nortumberland is popular for walking, camping and those who enjoy rural and outdoor activities.

5 minutes drive away is the town of Hexham, a historic market town with more stone architecture and regular farmers markets and plenty of local amenities. It also has an Aldi, Tesco and Waitrose. Trains run regularly into Newcastle from Hexham station.

As well as Hadrian's Wall (world heritage site), another great place to visit is Kielder Water, which offers mountain biking, a large forest, a vast reservoir, water sports, bird watching, arts and architecture and even an observatory!

The village is connected by bus, but having a car would be more useful to make the most of getting around.
