Details

Isaac's Byre is a lovingly restored barn conversion which sleeps 6 in comfort in 3 bedrooms with 3 bath/shower rooms.

Situated in a quiet hamlet overlooking the picturesque South Tyne valley: the cottage is a welcoming home from home with open plan living in a light and airy room. Built as a bastle house in 1600s, it was converted back into residential accommodation from a barn, in 2011, and is an ideal place for walking and cycling. For those who would rather experience the countryside from the comfort of a cottage it has French doors, which allow panoramic views, and open onto a patio giving great views of bird and wildlife plus the owners pet hens. Next door are; pet pig, sheep and ducks. Please see our reviews on revoo and Trip Advisor


Ground floor has a bedroom which has bed which can be a super king size or twin beds and a family bathroom with shower over the bath.. There are three shallow steps or a ramp to an open plan living room/kitchen with range cooker, Sky TV, ipod dock and DVD available. at the entrance to the cottage is a boot room for muddy walking boots and dogs and drying facilities. First floor has twin room with an adjoining shower and WC, a double room with ensuite shower with rain watershower head and WC.

Starter pack of kindling and firewood is provided plus Wi-Fi, telephone and linen are included in the price. Outside the back of the cottage there is a bike storage, barbecue, patio furniture and parking for 2-3 cars.

There are wonderful views over North Pennines to enjoy. Plenty of walks and cycling from the doorstep. Only 10-15 min walk to pub, post office and store, swimming pool and sauna.
