From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Characterful barn conversion set in 80 acres of private farmland which includes woodland, waterfall and river where salmon can be caught.

These stunningly situated holiday properties (refs MUS and MUT) are located in an elevated position enjoying spectacular views down the South Tyne Valley. Knowehead (ref MUS) is a stylishly presented, renovated farmhouse and has a lovely, welcoming ambiance. It is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a smart, peaceful, rural retreat to unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Snope Cottage (ref MUT) is a smaller detached cottage, perfect for a couple or small family. Set within 80 acres of picturesque, private farmland, visitors are free to roam at their will, and there are 5 miles of top class salmon fishing available on request. Access is up a delightful ½-mile private road which winds through 20 acres of beautiful woodland, home to a stunning waterfall, lovely river bank and woodland walks, and a wealth of wild life. The property stands on the Cumbrian/Northumbrian border in the North Pennines, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a UNESCO European and Global Geopark. This is one of England’s most special places and there is much to discover - a stunning landscape of open heather moors and peatlands, attractive dales and hay meadows, tumbling upland rivers, wonderful woods, welcoming communities, intriguing imprints of a mining and industrial past, and an abundance of distinctive birds, animals and plants. The Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall is nearby. Alston, the highest market town in England with galleries, cafes, pubs and steam railway, is 7 miles. The Lake District and Scottish Borderland are within 30 miles and the cities of Carlisle, Newcastle and Edinburgh will make an interesting day out. Shop 7 miles, good pub serving food, 1 mile.
