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, 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.

    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.

    Fabulous time yet again. House lovely, warm cozy and beautifully furnished. Very comfortable beds, we all slept like logs Owner left us tea, coffee no cookies this time. Last time we got homemade scones and jam. Owner came to make sure we were ok as it was the bad weekend with the high winds and floods. This place has everything you need including a fabulous Aga to cook on. Even towels were provided. We all love this place so much. Spectacular views, a real get away from it all place. Will definitely be booking for next year.

    The place was fine but it was let down by not having the basics: no toilet paper, hand soap, little washing up liquid, salt, pepper etc. These are little things which doesn't cost much but is a bit of a pain when you're away. Otherwise the cottage was very comfy and had great views.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you found the Farmhouse to be comfortable and that you enjoyed the glorious views of Alston Moor and the beautiful South Tyne Valley. As an Agent letting self-catering properties, Cottages.com does advise customers to pack the essentials. However, we do provide toilet rolls in each of the three bathrooms, washing up liquid at the kitchen sink as well as dishwasher tablets, cleaning fluids, dishcloths and washing powder. We apologise if there was a lack of salt and pepper and toilet rolls, we realised the mills were missing and these have now been replaced. Our property has been graded a 4 star in accordance with Visit Britain guidelines and we strive to provide a "home from home" feel to the property. We really appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again at Whitlow Farmhouse!

    Wi fi as advertised did not work. Sky tv did not work initially and was repaired while we were there. The heating was set for a maximum of 20deg C which at times was rather chilly. The general state of cleanliness could be improved. We all felt that a general refurbishment would be beneficial.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Our immediate and urgent response to the problem with the Sky TV meant that the system was working again the morning after arrival. The installation of high speed fibre optic internet is under way in the local area will enable us to provide a more reliable wifi service. We work hard to make our guests comfortable and the recent glowing reviews we have had in our Guest Book ensure us that visitors are continuing to enjoy their holidays in our home. We are confident that people who value the remoteness and beauty of the stunning countryside will continue to enjoy their holidays at Whitlow. We are extremely responsive to customer feedback, which is only possible when we are aware that there are issues at the time.
