A rural retreat

Having spectacular rural views across the heather clad fells of the North Pennines in an area of outstanding beauty near Allenheads, this former byre has been skilfully converted to provide holiday accommodation to an excellent standard.  The cottage has original stone walls and wood beams which compliment the modern interior living accommodation beautifully. The lounge/kitchen area is on the first floor to take full advantage of the stunning scenery surrounding this lovely cottage.

Thorn Green is in an idyllic location in the beautiful unspoiltvalley of the River East Allen and perfect for ramblers, nature enthusiasts and cyclists or those who simply yearn for the peace and relaxation of a truly rural retreat. 

The cottage is only 1.5 miles from the picturesque village of Allenheads which has its own Heritage centre, Public house and Café. Further up the Pennines is the market town of Alston and at 1300 feet above sea level claims to be the highest settlement in England and is the starting point for the South Tyne Railway.  Thorn Green has the unique advantage of being nestled between Hadrian's Wall Country and the North Pennines with easy access to  the Eden Valley and the Lake District National Park making this a superb base for exploring one of the most tranquil areas of Northern England.
