Situated behind the owner’s home, these holiday cottages offer comfortable accommodation with their own sitting-out areas. 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.
