About Vesta View

Vesta View is named for the Roman Goddess of hearth and home, and you'll certainly receive a warm welcome when you arrive. The modern detached holiday home is spacious enough to sleep up to ten people in five lovely bedrooms, each of which benefits from a gorgeous countryside view. Accommodation is over two floors with a flexible layout that suits families, extended families or groups of friends. There are stunning walks and bike rides from the doorstep, including the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail which is just across the road. Being in the heart of Hadrian's Wall Country puts you close to some of the region's most popular sights and attractions. You'll never run out of ways to have fun whether you yearn for solitude and Big Sky views, are fascinated by history and ancient sites, or enjoy shopping and eating out.

The property is near Hexham in the Northumberland National Park, and only a few miles north of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so it's no surprise that walking is a favourite pastime. The quality and diversity of the local footpaths attract visitors from around Britain, who come to explore not only the ancient site of Hadrian's Wall but also to discover the beauty of places like Whin Sill. Start with one of Hexham's Heritage Trails that explore the town's medieval and Victorian history before taking a stroll beside the River Tyne. Alternatively, head to Allen Banks, keeping an eye open for red squirrels as you pass through the verdant woodland. The market town of Hexham is a destination in its own right and has a wealth of independent shops, boutiques and restaurants as well as a regular market every Tuesday in the undercover area of the Shambles.

Cycling and mountain biking are both excellent ways to enjoy this spectacular landscape. The Sandstone Way passes close to the property, covering 120 miles from between Berwick-Upon-Tweed and Hexham. The Hadrian's Cycleway stretches from east to west, covering the entire 160-mile length of the Hadrian's Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site, with shorter trails around Sele Park and Tyne Green Country Park in Hexham. Kielder Forest is only 20 miles from the door - excellent for mountain biking but also excellent for walking, fishing, birdwatching and stargazing. Golfers have a choice of courses within easy reach, while anglers can try their luck fishing for salmon and trout on the River Tyne. You can even enjoy a day on one of Northumberland's glorious golden beaches with the coast approximately 40-minutes away

You don't have to try hard to imagine the scene as it was 1,900 years ago when the Roman rulers ordered the construction of Hadrian's Wall, especially when you visit places like the Roman forts at Housesteads, Vindolanda and Chesters. In addition to exploring Roman and Reivers sites, spend days exploring the Cheviot Hills, Rothbury, Coquetdale, and pretty villages such as Holystone and Harbottle. There is something to delight everyone in every season when you stay at Vesta View.

Accommodation Comprises:

The owners of Vesta View are keen to ensure that all guests - including those who use a wheelchair - feel welcome and comfortable during their stay. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • There is ample seating for everyone in the spacious living room, which has floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides to make the most of the far-reaching rural views. A cosy log burner is a welcome addition for winter, though efficient central heating means it's more of an indulgent extra and not necessary for warmth and comfort.
  • Being on holiday means having time to linger over meals, whether it's a lazy breakfast on a sunny morning or a multi-course extravaganza to celebrate a special occasion. Vesta View has a separate dining room with an extendable dining table that seats up to ten people, ample tableware and glasses, and a wine/beer cooler to keep drinks cold without having to go back and forth to the kitchen.
  • Speaking of the kitchen, the one at Vesta View is extremely well equipped. Catering for big groups of hungry people is made easy thanks to two fan-assisted ovens and a five-ring induction hob, as well as a dishwasher and welcome extras like a coffee maker. Hospitable touches like coffee pods, tea and hot chocolate are there so you can enjoy a hot drink as soon as you arrive. For added convenience, most supermarkets deliver to the property, so you can arrange delivery of your shopping for shortly after your arrival.
  • A washing machine, condenser dryer and laundry facilities are in the utility room.
  • Two of the five ensuite bedrooms are downstairs. Both have zip link beds that can be set up as a super-king or two single beds, depending on your needs. Please let the owner know your preferred layout when booking. High-quality mattresses and hypoallergenic bedding ensure a good night's sleep, while luxurious extras in every bedroom include a flatscreen TV with Freeview channels, a hairdryer, a cooling fan for the summer and extra blankets and hot water bottles for winter.
  • Every bedroom at Vesta View is ensuite, with two shower heads, a heated towel rail, hand basin and WC. One of the two downstairs ensuites is fully wheelchair accessible while the other is suitable for guests with limited mobility. Bathrobes and high-quality cotton towels are all provided.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and a handbasin.


  • Spacious upstairs landing with a bookcase full of games, books and information about the local area to help guests to relax and enjoy every moment of their stay.
  • Each of the three bedrooms upstairs is as luxurious as the bedrooms downstairs. All rooms have a super-king size bed, flatscreen TV with Freeview channels, ample hanging space, and high-quality mattresses and bedding.

Outside: The views from the garden are as impressive as those from the house, stretching across the Northumberland National Park towards the North Pennines. With a a Kadai® barbecue / fire pit, the patio is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner, when the weather is good, where you can enjoy time with your favourite people as the long summer days fade into brilliant night skies. There is off-street parking for up to three cars, and an Electric Vehicle Type 2 Charging Point.

Additional Information: All utilities, WiFi, bed linen, bath towels and a bag of charcoal briquettes are included. The owners also provide kitchen essentials, and a welcome basket of fuel for the log burner. Smoking and pets are not permitted.
