Haltwhistle train station is near our Bed and Breakfast accommodation
Haltwhistle has a train station which is the nearest railway station to Tantallon House.The train line runs through Cumbria and Northumberland, on the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway, which is also known as the Tyne Valley Line. Haltwhistle's name is not related to the name of the railway stop, but is Hal-twysel, meaning "a meeting of the streams by the hill".
