Nestled amongst the hills and valleys, Low Nest Barn is set in the heart of stunning, North Pennine countryside.

Low Nest Barn is adjacent to the owner’s home and has been tastefully converted to a good standard, offering accommodation with panoramic views over what is thought to be, one of the last undiscovered wildernesses of Britain. The barn is accessed by a rough track and lies a mile or so beyond the outskirts of Alston, on the borders of Northumbria and Cumbria, and central in the North Pennines, which is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wildlife is in abundance, and red squirrels and many species of birds can be seen from the barn. Enjoy a scenic ride through the beautiful South Tyne valley from Alston station on the South Tynedale railway, with vintage steam or diesel locomotives. Alston is said to be England’s highest market town. Fishing, riding and golf are available 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. There are water sports at Talkin and Kielder Water. Gateshead is only an hour away, with a large shopping centre, restaurants and a ten screen cinema. Alternatively, just stay home and relax and eat together with family and friends. It is set in a garden, bordered by mature trees, with panoramic views over green fields and wild fells. The town has a quaint cobbled street with public houses, butchers, bakers and even its own candlemaker. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Location and property very good, the only downside is the access road

    We had a lovely time. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, we were greeted personally. The cottage was very clean, very well equipted and pretty. There was also a very thoughful welcome pack. The two generous bathrooms, bedrooms and beds were very comfy. Well worth the steep decent for access which rewarded with quiet, wonderful views of the surrounding area and also a lovely garden.

    We had a 3 night break at Low Nest from 23/11/17. I cannot fault anything - the cottage is a real home from home and spotless. The bed upstairs is so comfy as are the sofas in the lounge. The kitchen is well equipped and the welcome gifts were lovely. We took our 2 Jack Russells and they loved the underfloor heating. We did keep them on leads on the patio as they are escape artists and would have squeezed under the fence - a bigger dog would be safe. The Pennine Way runs along the bottle of the garden - open the gate and you’re on it. There was a selection of leaflets with local walks and OS Map. It was cold, muddy and windy but that didn’t affect our stay - after all it was November and it was great returning to a warm cottage. I hope to go back next year and definitely recommend a visit. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a very rural location this is it. The views from the cottage are lovely. Pauline and John really have made a high quality and comfortable holiday home.
