What do you want from a holiday location?

If it is good value accommodation, beautiful unspoiled scenery between a National Park and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, peace and quiet, good food, friendly people, archaeology both ancient and industrial including the World Heritage Roman Wall attractions, close access to the best shopping and night life in Europe, galleries, music, opera and theatre, plenty of activities including riding, cycling, gliding, ballooning, a ‘Go Ape’ high level activity, water-sports and rock climbing, with some of the finest walking in the UK then Haydon Bridge is the centre for you.

Haydon Bridge is easily accessed by road, rail (with its own station) and air.

The village is located in the South Tyne Valley the river being noted for its sea trout and salmon fishing. There is brown trout fishing at Langley Dam and Hind Shield. In Victorian times, visitors came to take the mineral waters at Haydon Spa. The access to this has been rebuilt and provides an excellent short riverside walk from the village. (N.B. Currently (2020) more recent flooding has again made this inaccessible so check in the village before attempting a visit)

Golfers are catered for at nearby Hexham (2 courses), Slaley Hall, Matfen Hall, Allendale, Haltwhistle, Bellingham and Alston.

Swimmers can use the pools at Hexham, Haltwhistle (3 heated outdoor pools) or even in the river at the Allen Banks National Trust site.

If you like a drink the village has three all quite different pubs, some featuring excellent local real ales and food, and a club.

Haydon Bridge is 'John Martin Country'. Martin (1789 - 1854) was to become the most popular landscape artist and engraver of his time. His birthplace cottage is at East Land Ends in the village. Inspiration for his paintings came from his childhood in this area. The village community centre has a fine collection of reproductions of his works. The community is very much involved in promoting the renewed interest in his altruistic life and works his larger canvases now realising millions when available for sale.

So, check out the links on the Index to see what else is on offer.

We look forward to you visiting us soon at any time of the year.

You won't regret it!
