A traditional farmhouse with wonderful views from the enclosed garden. A fantastic base for large groups wishing to visit Northumberland and the Lakes.

This traditional farmhouse lies half a mile beyond the outskirts of Alston on the borders of Northumbria and Cumbria, central in the North Pennines, an AONB. Alston is said to be England’s highest market town. Fishing, riding and golf nearby. Follow some of the local rambles or the Pennine Way. The glorious coast and countryside of Northumbria is within travelling distance, as are the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Scottish Borders. Water sports at Talkin and Keilder Water. Gateshead, only an hour away, has a large shopping centre with restaurants and ten screen cinema. Or just stay home and relax in front of the fire and eat together with family and friends. Set in a garden, bordered by mature trees with panoramic views over green fields and wild fells. Before it lies the site of an ancient Britain fort, and behind, the Roman’s Maiden Way. The town has a quaint cobbled street with public houses, butchers, bakers and its own candlemaker. An ideal holiday base. Assisted wheelchair users can be accommodated on the ground floor.

    The farmhouse accommodated 20 family members aged from 5 to 75yrs for our annual Christmas getaway so comfortably, it was extremely homely, spotlessly clean and well equipped with all the little extras in the kitchen where we cooked our family Christmas dinner with ease. The views and surrounding countryside were beautiful and peaceful, all you could expect from a rural retreat. a short walk to Alston providing all we needed from a brilliant accommodating Fish & Chip Shop to Santa's Train. The open log fire was a great addition to the cossiness of the evenings

    A fantastic house for a large group. Having so many bedrooms and bathrooms as well as 2 kitchens and 2 large living rooms is great. The main kitchen is extremely well equipped for catering for a big number. The house is very clean and the heating works very well. We didn't need to light the wood burners even though staying during cold weather.

    The farmhouse had everything that is needed by a large group for a lovely holiday. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we couldn't have asked for more. We would not hesitate in returning for another stay.
