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.

    Absolutely fabulous location, spectacular views, lovely walks, excellent accommodation and very welcoming greeting. One almost doesn't want to praise it too much in case it gets difficult to book next time! 11 out of 10

    We enjoyed our week at Low Nest Barn, it is a very comfortable cottage. The drive way is a bit scary for the first time but alright once you get used to it. The cottage enjoys fantastic views.

    Stunning cottage. Cosy, comfortable, well-equipped and with amazing views from every window. We also found the cottage quite spacious and full of character. The wine and chocolates on arrival were a very nice touch.

    This cottage was the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in by far. John and Pauline have put a lot of thought and effort into making this a truly comfortable place to stay. It was just like being at home with everything being provided. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and all the home comforts and would definitely visit again. First class!

    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.
