Farthing is a thoroughly delightful holiday cottage all on one level, described sometimes by visitors as a ’Tardis’, as it is deceptively roomy inside.

Built in the 18th century as a railway cottage and nestled in beautiful surroundings in the small hamlet of Redesmouth (2 miles from Bellingham), there are lovely walks in all directions from the front door – along the disused railway lines that lend themselves to stunning walks passing along the River Rede.

However far you like to go there are walks to suit you, and the bluebells are a must-see in the spring!

Bellingham is a small, bustling, ancient market town steeped in history, through which the Pennine way passes. It boasts an 18-hole golf course and, if fishing is your thing, permits are available at the post office.

There are quaint shops including craft shops, cafés (the old workhouse), an outdoor shop bakery, churches, and three friendly pubs. There is also a Co-op store open every day from 8 am till late.

Hareshaw Linn waterfall is a ‘must see’ just a short walk out of town. The Riverdale hotel, just a short walk in the other direction, has a swimming pool and sauna for visitors to book and use.

Information on all attractions is available in Farthing Cottage so you can get the most out of your holiday.
