Description

Glorious views, traditional features and well-proportioned rooms make this property near Alston ideal for friends and family.

Standing in a stunning, elevated position in the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this refurbished, former 19th century farmhouse has enviable views across Alston Moor and the beautiful, unspoilt South Tyne Valley. Perched on the Cumbria/Northumberland border, the traditional features and generously proportioned rooms make this an ideal choice for families and friends looking for a comfortable and well equipped holiday home. Standing detached alongside one other property on a mixed working farm, its peaceful, rural location makes it feel off the beaten track and yet it is just 500 yards from the Alston to Brampton road which connects the Lake District to the Northumberland National Park. There is a network of public footpaths direct from the doorstep linking up to numerous trails and cycle routes. The archaeological remains of Whitley Castle (Roman Fort), described as the hidden gem of the North Pennines is a stones throw from the property and trout and salmon fishing can be enjoyed on a quiet stretch of the South Tyne River running through the owner’s farm (2 permits available by request in advance). Whitlow is perfectly situated as a touring base for exploring a wealth of natural and historical treasures in the area. Hadrian’s Wall is only 10 miles away, with the Scottish Border and the Lake District approximately 25 miles. Nearby Alston, 21/2 miles, the highest market town in England, offers an interesting array of cafes, shops, pubs, narrow gauge steam engine railway (which runs through the farm) and 18-hole golf. Shops, pubs and restaurants 21/2 miles.

    Lovely cottage. Plenty of room for everyone. There was an issue when we got there but Johnny immediately got to work sorting it out and it was resolved as fast as it could be, which was impressive. Very remote, beautiful views, would definitely stay here again

    It was a lovely house in a beautiful setting, could do with some more patio chairs and table. Our party consisted of 5 adults and 6 children aged 8 to 15 yrs, and they loved the accommodation. Elaine ( the farmers wife) was lovely and very helpful.

    Fantastic cottage. The driveway up to accommodation need attention, however, the owner assured us this was in hand.
