1¼ miles from Allendale in the North Pennines AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
Dove Cottage is a characterful, bastle-like stone cottage, surrounded by farmland, mainly grazed by sheep and wildlife. There’s two small woodlands and we’ve planted a further 1200 broadleaf native trees recently.
In Dove Cottage the living room is upstairs in order to take advantage of the stunning views and starlit dark skies. Broadband, free-sat TV and i-pod dock. Walking/cycling from the door.
Downstairs: Double bedroom with en suite bathroom. Hallway leads to stairs. Low beamed ceilings (6′).
Upstairs: Kitchen-living room with well equipped kitchen, far-reaching views from the dining area and comfortable lounge area with wood burner (wood provided) adding a cosy feel. High beamed ceilings.
Outside: Car parking area and a private sitting out area.
Own water from spring/bore hole. An air source heat pump heats both the cottage and hot water. We have a wind turbine and photovoltaic panels and thus your stay with us can be considered as very earth friendly.
Perfect for a retreat. If you don’t wish to retreat, there’s loads to do and see.
