Codley Gate Cottage is immediately adjacent to the fascinating World Heritage Site of Vindolanda and the Chesterholme Museum, with its famous Vindolanda tablets. Also, nearby is Housesteads Fort which has well-preserved Roman barracks and some of the earliest-known flushing toilets.
The award-winning Hadrian's Wall Bus will take you to many sites further along the Wall.
The village of Bardon Mill, with its famous Errington Reay Pottery, just over a mile down the valley. The nearest town is Haltwhistle, 4 miles to the west and the award winning market town of Hexham is 14 miles east.
Northumberland is a peaceful and picturesque region of many historic castles, tranquil countryside (including Northumberland National Park), a golden heritage coast and a strong Christian heritage (including Holy Island).
