Sheltered by a band of mature trees, Roman Fields is just a few yards from the A69 Corbridge Bypass, bringing Newcastle Airport and central Newcastle within approximately 20 and 25 minutes drive respectively. Trains from Corbridge Station, less than a mile away, reach Newcastle in around 40 minutes, stopping en-route at the MetroCentre, Europe’s largest shopping mall. Some services carry on to Carlisle in the west and Middlesbrough in the east. Buses between Hexham and Newcastle also pass through the village, with many services stopping a few yards from Roman Fields.
Surrounded by open countryside, the village enjoys excellent outdoor amenities including scenic walks along the Tyne, the town park and playground at The Chains, and the celebrated Roman ruins. Corbridge is also close to some of England’s finest natural attractions, with Kielder Forest, Kielderhead Nature Reserve and Northumberland National Park to the north, and the North Pennines AONB to the south.
The shops in the village are interspersed with cafés, restaurants, pubs and other services in the picturesque streets and Market Place. As well as a large Co-op store, there are delicatessens, a bakery, a newsagent and post office, a pharmacy, fashion, gift and book shops, hairdressers, fashion boutiques, antique specialists and other services. The wider choice in Hexham can be reached by car, bus, train or a pleasant three mile walk along the River Tyne.
Local and community activities range from rugby, cricket and tennis clubs to talks and film screenings at the Parish Hall and regular author visits at the Forum Bookshop, as well as a series of annual festivals. Fitness facilities, including swimming pools and a gym, can be found at Wentworth Leisure Centre in Hexham, and Hexham also has a theatre and arts centre, a community-run cinema and two golf clubs.
