Springwell stands in open Northumberland countryside, just a few hundred metres south of Hadrian's Wall at the heart of the Trust's Estate. Converted from a pair of eighteenth-century farm workers' cottages it is spacious and comfortable. The significant Roman centres of Housesteads and Vindolanda are only minutes away by car. There is a dry stone wall enclosing the lawned garden with extensive views over the surrounding countryside.
Heating: Oil central heating included.
Garden: There is an enclosed lawn garden.
Parking: There is parking for 2 cars, in the layby in the lane next to the cottage.
From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, the magnificent coastline (much of which we care for) and Northumberland National Park to the north a holiday with us will give you the chance to explore some or all of this fascinating area. As if that wasnâ€™t enough, there are also historic towns and cities and stories after stories in the historic houses we care for.

The National Trust owns a range of historic buildings in the area including Lindisfarne Castle, Wallington, Cragside and the shore- based Souter lighthouse.
