Winnowshill is located close to Derwent Reservoir, set within the beautiful Pennine valley near to the Durham and Northumberland border. The reservoir is 3.5 miles in length with a thousand acres of clean and open water, which is devoted to wind surfing and sailing with five generous slipways for easy launch. Golfing enthusiasts will delight in the ample choice of several prestigious courses close by, one being the superior De Vere Slaley Hall. Ramblers and cyclists will enjoy exploring the heather moorlands with rugged uplands which include some of the highest, wildest and most beautiful scenery in the country. Hamsterley Forest provides miles of lovely forest walks leading to High Force; England’s largest waterfall. The historic market town of Hexham, dominated by its majestic abbey offers an abundance of amenities only 15 miles and the pretty village of Corbridge renowned for its specialist shops and quaint tea rooms is 12 miles. Bowes Museum, Raby Castle, Beamish Museum, Vindolanda, the Roman Site at Corstopitum and Housesteads Roman Fort Museum are all interesting historic attractions within easy driving distance. The vibrant city of Newcastle, well-known for its global, cultural pursuits and the extensive shopping facilities at the world renowned Gateshead Metro Centre, along with the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the Baltic Centre and the Sage Gateshead music venue are only 20 miles east, ensuring The Himmell provides a peaceful retreat in an excellent central location for discovering the best of Northumberland, County Durham and Cumbria.

    Fabulous cottage in a lovely location. Be aware no phone signal in the cottage which for us was bliss. Only negative was that the doors have gaps when shut so compromised privacy when in shower etc and with the lights on so let's in light too. But don't let this put you off.

    A great place to escape the world - no internet!

    An excellent if compact holiday property with good decor and outside area for kids. It would be nice if walking directly from the cottage could be made possible either by making permissive access over suitable farm areas or persuading authorities to put in place public paths all the way around the reservoir.
