A cosy retreat for couples, and includes a four poster bed. Great walking to be enjoyed with the Pennine Way on the doorstep.

These three, 18th century barn conversions, (refs 80043, 28645, 28646) are located just 1 mile from the market town of Alston, one of the highest towns in the country and a charming backdrop to many a period film and TV series. Situated behind the owner’s home, these holiday cottages offer comfortable accommodation with their own sitting-out areas. This is a good base for exploring Tynedale and the North Pennines by foot, bicycle or car, with many places of interest to visit, including Alston’s narrow gauge railway, Pennine Pottery and local crafts. The Pennine Way runs past the door, with walks in all directions. Alston, with its quaint cobbled main street, has a range of individual shops, character inns, restaurants and tea rooms. Within the area is an historical Roman fort and tourists will enjoy the museums, exhibitions and sites along Hadrian’s Wall. The Lake District, Beamish Museum, Newcastle, the Metro Centre, Carlisle and the Scottish Borders are all within driving distance. Ideal for families or friends to get together, these properties (red 80043, 28645 and 28646) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Fantastic location to explore. Sue and family very hospitable and friendly. Always available to give advice and directions to local places of interest. The calf shed was cosy and very warm, clean towels always available for guests. The extra facility of freezer and laundry room was a bonus. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and are already considering when to go again. Excellent value for money and being pet friendly makes this an ideal holiday for families with pets.

    Lovely cottage, perfect for 2 adults and our dog. Friendly welcome with tea, coffee and shortbread awaiting our arrival. Lots to do for a holiday and will be rebooking shortly.

    Was made to feel very welcome with milk and choc biscuits on arrival, super comfy bed, well equipped kitchen, a decent size for 1 adult, we found it a little too small for us, but all in all every thing you needed was there. Good location had a really good weeks stay.

    We had such a lovely break at the Calf Shed, it had everything we needed for a relaxing country escape for 2. The owners were helpful and friendly and the cottage was immaculate and cosy. Such a beautiful location too, Alston is lovely and just 3 mins down the road.... Bigger attractions are more like a 30-40 min drive but we didn't mind this as our main aim was to just kick back and relax before the arrival our first little'un!
