Barbecue available on request (shared). Hot tub (shared with other properties on-site on a rota basis). Bike store. Private parking for 1 car.

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.
Guests have shared use of the hot tub where views can be enjoyed towards Mount Hooley and over the South Tyne Valley. The changing landscape throughout the seasons makes for picturesque views all year round. After a day out exploring this delightful area, what better way to soak those tired limbs and relax.
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.

    We had a lovely visit to the calf shed. It's cosey and the owners are lovely, having milk,tea, coffee and biscuits for our arrival. The only complaint I have is that even though it is meant for two people the downstairs space could be laid out better. As people who like to walk when coming back there is only a very small two seater sofa and a rub chair. Not the the most comfy for costing up after a long walk. The cooker is very slow, we chose to cook two nights of our three. The bed was very comfy and the shower was hot and power was fine. Also extra things where on hand like towels and toilet rolls. Lovely area to explore and we would stay again. We didn't use the hot tub as it was a bit fresh and my partner felt a little overlooked to relax.

    Fabulous location for us. Perfect little cottage for a base for walking as we do! Very well equipped apart from no oven gloves and the range of drinking glasses was very limited. Only minor issues though to a perfect week and I’m sure we’ll be booking again.
