  • "Great townhouse located in the centre of The village, which means everything is just a short walk across the square away."

    The pub food was excellent on our couple of trips out and the people were so welcoming. The settees on the first floor are very low which made them very hard to get in and out of if you wanted to use that room to watch Tv and the town house could benefit from a dryer. But with those minor points we enjoyed a fabulous week in Allendale

  • "Great 3 story house."

    The property was very clean, with a well equipped kitchen including a washing machine and dish washer. 2 en-suite bedrooms and a separate bathroom on the 2nd floor next to the bedroom. Great to have a second sitting room too. Small enclosed garden at the rear of the property with a table and chairs and larger enclosed garden behind that which can be used by the townhouse Monday to Thursday or when not in use by the Manor House. Two pubs with less than 50 yards of the house, food in Golden Lion was great. Forge cafe was good for breakfast too, or Jill’s cafe in Catton is very good but a 5-10 min drive from the house. There is a great Indian restaurant about 1.5 mile away that does take away or eat in and a pizza van the visits the square on a Tuesday, so no need to cook if you don’t want too. Both pubs are dog friendly. Great stay overall to be recommended.

    Quieter than expected being in the centre of the town. We would stay again!

  • "We had a wonderful week at this property, it was well equipped, clean and comfortable and in a perfect spot for walking, shopping, eating out and to visit other towns and villages."

    Our two dogs were also made welcome and had a good enclosed garden space. We would highly recommend to friends and family and hopefully will return in the future.

  • "The Dale Townhouse offers superb accommodation, it is clean, comfortable and welcoming."

    It is well equipped with everything needed to enjoy your stay and has homely touches that show the owners have gone the extra mile to ensure your stay is perfect. The property has a central location on the market place, close to all amenities, however there is no disturbance from noise. Allendale Town is a lovely place and the locals are friendly. The Golden Lion serves excellent food, but you need to book. The Indian restaurant is also lovely and the pizza truck on a Tuesday is a must There are many opportunities for walking and taking in the breathtaking scenery and the town is well placed for visiting all the must see places in the area. I would recommend this property to anyone.

  • "A very well equipped holiday cottage perfect for the 4 of us."

    It was good that there was garden space in the nice weather and very nice that we had use of the shared garden space beyond our garden. The views were great from the decking. Good setting in the village with the 3 pubs, shop and post office within 50 yards. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • "Lovely house in a brilliant setting."

    The bedrooms are fantastic. The ground floor might feel a bit gloomy in less than perfect weather (we could not have been more lucky and had a weak of glorious sunshine) and could be better lit, but the first floor living area is much brighter. The back garden is a sun trap and perfect for sitting out with a book or eating outside for four. We had one issue during the week - insufficient hot water to fill the enormous bath - and I texted the owner directly and he was round within an hour to sort it out! I can recommend the walk from Allendale to Allen Mill and the coffee shop there. Plenty of opportunities for kids to paddle and dogs to splash on route. There’s lots of other fantastic walking nearby. The cafe at the Forge gallery is superb and is no more than 20 yards from the house’s front door. One thing to note - totally outside of the owners’ or Sykes’ control and it didn’t spoil our trip at all - but it was pretty rowdy outside the two main pubs in the market place on the Saturday night. That may have been because it was the first hot Saturday night since pubs reopened after lockdown, and it being a bank holiday weekend, but it was noisy into the early hours. Of the pubs in the village, the Golden Lion does the better food, and catered well for the two vegans in our group with a bit of notice. A really enjoyable week!

    Small garden area outside was enough for the dogs nightly needs and large additional garden area with views was a bonus.

  • "Lovely, well equipped house, in a really nice location."

    The house was spotlessly clean and the owners provided a travel cot, high chair and changing table which made traveling with a baby much easier. We enjoyed a week with our 8 month old and appreciated the extra living room that was perfect for her to play in. Weather was mixed but we made the most of the local amenities, as well as going on a couple of beautiful walks from the house. A perfect place to stay to have a break from city life.

  • "The house was amazing in every way, it was absolutely spotless and very well presented as you walked through the door."

    The rear of the property which you can use during the week is totally fantastic ( it’s part of another property owned by same owners which you are welcome to use, but only if it’s not being used by the other holiday makers) it has a lovely decked area, barbecue area, fire pit area and lovely kiddies swings, slides etc. Dale townhouse offers a lovely relaxed ground floor living area with a log burner, lovely dining area and well equipped kitchen, for those who don’t like it so warm, 2nd floor offers a chill out zone, also with a log burner for one log maybe ( my wife liked it up there to do her crocheting ) the bedrooms are lovely with nice soft bedding and comfy beds, showers are great too, also a bath if you fancy a soak. This really is a lovely place for a break, owners are really good and at hand should you need them, town is really friendly with 3 really nice pubs who serve amazing food, the area is lovely too. We had a truly lovely break and would encourage others to do the same.

    Owners are on hand and really helpful, the house is beautiful and very comfortable. There are shops and hotels right outside the door though the place feels really tranquil. Would also recommend the beauty shop in the square. My friend and I had the most amazing treatments there and she opened specially for us. Plenty of lovely walks in the area and would recommend a trip to wander around the pretty Hexham. Would definitely recommend this

The property

A characterful cottage located in the village of Allendale, ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, and the surrounding areas of natural beauty.

This charming hideaway is perfect for travellers, family or friends wanting to escape for a while, perhaps to enjoy some peace and quiet away from it all.

Enter into the open plan kitchen/diner, home to a woodburner which you can gather around on a cooler evening.

French doors open out to the wonderful garden so you can spend some time in the fresh air at your own leisure.

After an adventure filled day wander up to the next floor and relax in the lounge, where you can snuggle up next to the open fire for a lovely night in.

The first bedroom lies close by and a beautiful shower room has been modernized to a high standard.

Two further bedrooms rest on the second floor, elevated by exposed beams and Velux windows that welcome the outside in.

A walk-in shower room is a pleasant addition to the layout and the family bathroom boasts a stand alone bath with pure white fittings.

Allendale is well-situated for accessing Carlisle, Hexham, Newcastle and Durham to the east, not forgetting Hadrian's Wall to the north.

There are lots of walks, cycling opportunities and unspoilt villages in the neighbouring North Pennines; an abundance of coast to coast attractions.

A delightful little cottage for a memorable holiday all-year-round.
