The cottages sit in a farmland setting and are surrounded by fabulous views down the Allen Valley towards Weardale and north to the Cheviot Hills. A peaceful place for those who just wish to relax and a great place from which tour around. For those who love walking and cycling – you can start from the door.

Both cottages are luxury, self-catering barn conversions, refurbished to a very high standard
NB : It’s expected that from Spring/Summer 2014 our guests will be able to hire electric bikes from the village.
