A charming, cosy cottage in the quiet Northumbrian village of Wall, this traditional detached stone cottage sleeps four people in King and Twin beds. Originally built in the mid 1800s as two cottages when Wall village had thriving industries, it has been tastefully renovated to a high standard, maintaining original features with exposed beams, stone feature wall and a woodturner in the lounge. The bright, spacious kitchen is a sociable space with seating for six people - a good place to plan the week’s activities or share meals and laughter.
Two bedrooms and family bathroom are set in the roof space upstairs; sloped, beamed ceilings add to the character, blackout blinds and deep sprung mattresses with memory foam toppers ensure relaxing sleep. A small third room has a small sofa, DVD and Wii player, may also be used for a travel cot.
Church Cottage is situated near to the parish church and overlooking the village green. A small, patio catches the south-facing sun. There are several lovely walks from the cottage, with Hadrian’s Wall only half a mile away and the original parish church of Wall - St Oswald’s at Heavenfield on the edge of the parish. Believed to be the location where King Oswald raised a large, wooden cross and called his troops to pray before The Battle of Heavenfield (AD 633). The significance of the battle of Heavenfield lies in the re-establishment of Celtic Christianity which led to the Golden Age of the Kingdom of Northumbria. This tranquil, hilltop church is now a place of prayer, pilgrimage, inspiration and the starting point for The Way of Light.
