The property

A stunning barn conversion with three bedrooms and spacious living accommodation. The ground floor bedroom and shower room are suitable for the less mobile, whilst the two first floor twins with family bathroom offer flexible accommodation. The airy open plan living space has a roaring woodburning stove, which is ideal to curl up in front of, or why not sit beside sunny south-facing bay window with a book and soak up the country atmosphere? Note: This property is connected to Ref. 919127, together they sleep 10.

Hudgill Farm Cottages

Alston 2 miles. These two sympathetically restored barn conversions, set next to the owners’ home, are joined via a lockable interconnecting door and are situated in a rural location, two miles from Alston in Cumbria. Overlooking sloping grassland leading down to the River Nent, the cottages occupy an idyllic setting, providing a quiet getaway for families and friends. Both cottages have been furnished and equipped to offer comfort, warmth and a welcoming return after an invigorating day in the Cumbrian countryside. Attention has been taken to retain and enhance the character of the building, with the exposed A frame beams and a large south-facing window where the old barn door used to be. Each property has its own private garden, whilst to the rear of the cottages is a lawned area where you can enjoy views over the valley. Footpaths lead across the moorland and the local area has very little light pollution, so this is just the spot for sitting back and stargazing beneath the night’s sky, before heading back inside for an evening by the woodburning stove. Nearby Alston retains its traditional country character, with a selection of welcoming pubs with open fires, serving real ale and good food. The Pennine Way also passes through the town, which is also on the C2C Cycle Route. With plenty of places to visit within an hour by car, including Hadrian's Wall, Beamish Open Air Museum, Durham Cathedral and the Lake District, these are perfect holiday cottages for a relaxing break.

About the location

ALSTON

Melmerby 8 miles; Penrith 18 miles; Stanhope 20 miles; Hexham 23 miles; Carlisle 29 miles; Barnard Castle 30 miles.

Alston is set in the North Pennines in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by a unique landscape of moorland, hills, rivers and waterfalls, and is England's highest market town. This intriguing town, with its cobbled streets and fascinating nooks and crannies, was the location for ITV's productions of Jane Eyre and Oliver Twist. Alston and the North Pennines have long inspired artists and writers; the poet and writer W H Auden loved the area and today Alston is an inspiration to the craftspeople who live and work there. There is a host of unusual shops in the town including quality crafts and galleries. Take a ride on one of the lovingly-restored steam and diesel engines through the beautiful scenery of the South Tyne valley on the South Tynedale Railway which runs from Alston through to Slaggyford. The River Tyne is also noted as one of the finest salmon rivers in England and day-ticket fishing is available locally. The North Pennines used to be one of the wealthiest lead mining centres in Europe, and the Killhope Lead Mining Museum offers a great family day out with interactive exhibitions. With the drive along the A686 recognised by the AA as one of the world's best drives, and northern Cumbria, County Durham and Northumberland, all within easy reach, this makes a superb base.
