From our office in Alston drive to the bottom of the street and turn right onto the A686 Hexham road. You will pass Low Byre Manor and Low Byre Park and you will see a turning to your right just before the national speed limit sign. Take this turning and then the next turning left through the stone gate posts, you can see the property ahead as you drive up the lane. Please be careful as this is a single track road up hill. Parking is located to the right of the property infront of the green door.

Love this place!

Second time staying here, large, comfortable apartment at the top of a beautiful house. Hazel the owner is very helpful and the apartment extremely well resourced and fantastic value for money with amaisingly comfy beds. So quiet and peaceful with beautiful views of surrounding countryside and wildlife. Just a 5 to 10 minute walk into Alston and local amenities. Bit hilly on the final approaches to the house and appartmement but if you don't do hills then the whole local area may be a no go! We love it here and will be back again later this year!

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and Alston as much as we do. Hope to see you again.
