While you’re out exploring the great Northumberland countryside, why not head into our historic towns and sample some of the amazing independent stores of Hexham, Corbridge and beyond.
Both of the popular towns are right on the doorstep of a number of our Wooden Star Cottages, so you’ll be able to shop with our beautiful small businesses until your heart’s content. To make sure you don’t miss any, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourites that we think are a must-visit while you’re staying with us.
Hexham Independent Shops
A true book lover’s dream, Cogito Books is a picture-perfect bookstore filled with carefully curated books for all to enjoy. The store is based on St Mary’s Chare, just a short walk away from our Hexham House Apartments, and inside you’ll find expert booksellers who will help you make the perfect purchase.
If you’re looking for a memento to remember your trip, you should definitely make a pitstop at Matthias Winter. The beautiful eco-home store and gift shop not only has a huge stock of items from homeware to beauty products, but also favours eco-friendly suppliers and even has its own refill stations. Find the store on Hallstile Bank, one of the main shopping streets in Hexham.
Artful is an art gallery and gift store with wonderful pieces created by the businesses’ owner Kelly Morgan and a number of handpicked local artists.
