Right on the Pennine Way in the beautiful North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Low Nest has been recently renovated to a high standard by owners John and Pauline de la Mare. The charm and character of this 300 year old former bastle house has been retained and the history of the building is still evident. This 2 bedroom barn conversion offers warm and comfortable accommodation in a peaceful location, perfect for both relaxing and walking. All the rooms have spectacular views over the lovely South Tyne valley. There is an abundance of wildlife all around including red squirrels.
The open plan ground floor is light and airy and comprises a well equipped kitchen diner and a cosy lounge, which is the ideal place to settle down with a book, play a game of cards or just chill out in front of the TV. A selection of books, games and DVDs are available for your use.
There are two good sized double rooms, both with their own en-suite bathrooms. One of the rooms can be set up as either a king size bed or two singles, and a cot can be provided on request.
Outside is a patio area with table and chairs and a barbeque, and a variety of outdoor games are available, e.g. Jenga, chess.
In the adjoining undercroft there are laundry facilities for your use.
The town of Alston is just a couple of minutes drive away and is able to provide for all your food shopping. There are 2 garages, and shops for you to browse at your leisure. There are pubs and cafés for you to enjoy and many other local attractions (see links).
We will accept well-behaved dogs for a small additional charge.
The River South Tyne, reputed to be the finest salmon-fishing river in England, is just a few minutes’ walk away and day licences can be obtained (please ask for further details if you are interested).
Full details about the facilities available at Low Nest will appear here soon.
