A lovely cottage over three floors, sleeping four people in two bedrooms.

Chestnut is a lovely cottage spread over three floors. With two en-suite bedrooms, a second floor king-size double and a ground floor twin, it sleeps four people comfortably. The cottage also has an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

Outside, there is a private garden area, shared use of the owners' garden and off road parking. Chestnut can be booked with two other cottages on site, and together they make a great touring base for larger parties.


Fabulous accommodation and wildlife heaven
This is a beautiful place to stay, with really comfortable facilities on the inside and a stunning location on the outside. Both bedrooms are spacious, the twin on the ground floor can be made into a comfortable king, and this room has a huge bathroom with jacuzzi bath and walk in shower. The upstairs bedroom has a king size bed and jacuzzi bath with shower over and under floor heating. That room also has skylights and fantastic views. The middle floor has a well equipped kitchen with large dining table and sofas. Tv reception worked fine on the top floor but sporadic on the lower two but with that setting who needs telly! The wifi was good. Outside is where it comes into its own. Overlooking fields with alpaca, and into moorland beyond, the balcony is a fantastic place to watch the local wildlife. And it's amazing. The best entertainment comes with a fivers worth of bird seed and peanuts, there are two local red squirrels who are almost guaranteed to show up if you put food out. Also pheasants, jackdaws, coal tits, robins etc. The owners are right next door and have lots of hints for good places to eat and visit. The cottage is in a great location for visits to Hadrians Wall, Hexham, the north east and the Lakes. This is a beautiful place to stay, I cannot rate it highly enough, and can't wait to go back.

Lovely well appointed cottage
Good location less than 5 miles east of Alston, in farmland with field of Alpacas outside. Quality interior, large room, good kitchen, all modern and very clean. Pleasant walk to local pub and restaurant, surrounded by good walks.

The cottage is a fantastic resource in a truly amazing area. Some great places to visit and a home from home to return to at the end of the day. The lower bathroom is straight out of a magazine!
