    “The cottage was in a lovely position overlooking the village of Garrigill and the surrounding hills.”

    It was so clean with everything in it that is needed. I would fully recommend this cottage.

The property

A beautiful one bedroom retreat situated on the outskirts of Garrigill, close to Alston; in an AONB, with views sweeping out across the hillside and beyond.

Perfectly suited for couples, Byre Cottage brings you closer to the peaceful scenery, with its very own veranda overlooking the dreamy landscape, and an enclosed front lawn.

A true home-away-from-home, this destination can be appreciated all-year-round, the owner's even provide a lovely welcome pack to ensure you feel settled upon arrival.

Discover the wonderful open-plan living area, a light and airy set-up including a fold-out dining table and a country-cottage kitchen with all of the essentials you are going to need.

The ground floor is finished with a glistening shower room, complete to that of a high standard.

Upstairs, the king-size bedroom is where you will want to be, relaxing under the contemporary skylight windows, amidst front-facing views which invite the glorious outside in.

Summery bedding, a dressing table, and a wardrobe all add to the heart-warming ambience.

Be at one with the location however you choose, the centre of the village is the green, with the George and Dragon pub, a post office and village store, St John’s church and the village hall, all are nearby.

The C2C cycle route passes through the village.

At Ashgillside and Beldy there are waterfalls namely Ashgill Force and Thortergill Force, and the Pennine Way passes through the village on its way from Dufton via Cross Fell, Great Dun Fell and on to Alston.

A unique part of Cumbria not to be missed.

About the location

GARRIGILL, CUMBRIA

Alston 3.6 miles.

Surrounding this small village is Alston Moor, a beautiful and diverse area known for its rare alpine flora and moorland birds. This was once one of the richest mining areas in Britain and reminders of this industry are everywhere. Grassed-over spoil heaps, sunken pits, rusting machinery and a myriad of tracks and byways all speak of the riches once gleaned from underground. Nestling in these upland valleys are the lead-mining villages of Nenthead and Garrigill. Standing on the River South Tyne, not far from its source, and near Cross Fell is this small village with access to the summit of Burnhope Seat.. The centre of the village is the green, with the George and Dragon pub, a post office and village store, St John’s church and the village hall, with childrens play area to the rear, are nearby. At Ashgillside and Beldy there are waterfalls namely Ashgill Force and Thortergill Force. The Pennine Way passes through the village on its way from Dufton via Cross Fell, Great Dun Fell and on to Alston. The Alton area was well known for lead mining and there are a number in the area with an award winning lead mining museum only a few miles away at Killhope.
