The nearby historic village of Blanchland is in Northumberland close to the County Durham border. The village has occasionally been used as a period setting for films, owing to its traditional and unspoilt situation.

Hexham offers a wider range of local services including a number of supermarkets, a good selection of shops and a regular farmers' market, professional services, a leisure/sports centre, an independent cinema, busy theatre and hospital.
