  • Retreat to this charming stone cottage with tranquil rural views over the North Pennines
  • Soak in the hot tub and dry off by the fire pit
  • Surrounded by beautiful countryside, walk from your door to explore
Property code: SZ186

Enjoy the peaceful location in this magnificent, converted barn where you can spend hours relaxing in the sociable, spacious rooms or outside in the warmth of the hot tub.

Lace up your boots, throw a harness on the dog and head out to explore close to home. Just 2 miles away, the village of Alston is supposedly the highest market settlement in England at 1000ft above sea level. Browse the streets which are dotted with independent shops and places to grab a tasty bite to eat or hop on the Pennine Way for an adventurous afternoon in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you fancy a day on the water, make the 26.5-mile trip into the Lake District and visit the beautiful lake at Ullswater. Board a dog-friendly steamer for a lovely day out.

Take the two steps up and into the beautiful living space to settle in. The stylish lounge/diner has a comfortable sofa and pair of chairs in which you can sit and unwind in front of the Smart TV. Throw open the patio doors to let a breeze flow inside. Head through to the spacious kitchen where an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine and washing machine provide you with all you need to cook your meals and wash muddy clothes fresh from adventure. Completing the ground floor is a useful shower room with WC. When it’s time to say good night, climb stairs to the first floor to rest your head. With quirky sloping ceilings, both the king-size and the twin bedrooms are bright and airy, creating relaxing spaces in which to drift off. Rise from a peaceful sleep and head to the family bathroom with WC for a soak in the tub (with shower attachment) for a relaxing start to your day. The bathroom also has a sloping ceiling so take care when getting in and out of the double-sided bath.

Settle into the hot tub for a sumptuous soak to calm aching muscles. Admire far-reaching views from here before heading to the patio for a glass of something cold where you can also enjoy al fresco meals. If you fancy staying outside late, throw a log on the firepit and stay warm. There is parking for two cars.

This cottage was one of the best equipped, clean and beautifully presented properties we have stayed in. The owner was helpful, informative and readily available -but not in the least intrusive. The position of the property is superb- views to die for, great hot tub and a brilliant situation to explore the locality and further afield ( Lake DistricRead moret, Pennines, etc). The stars at night whilst sitting in the hot tub with a glass of Prosecco were amazing.. 5***** all round! Hide

The cottage was absolutely beautiful and exceptionally clean and smelled so nice. We met the owner not long after we arrived she was very warm and welcoming . Couldn't fault the cottage one bit . The reason for the low star on location was simply because it was a bit to out the way for us personally but other than we would actually give it 10 starsRead more for everything if we could . Hide
