  • "We had a fantastic relaxing break at Treetops."

    It truly is like home from home. The cottage is lovely and comfortable, very warm and plenty of space. There are plenty of walks very close by which is great when taking pets. Would highly recommend Treetops.

  • "Treetops is the most delightful place to stay, it is truly a home from home."

    It has generous sized bedrooms, with quality furnishings and the very comfortable beds. The bathroom has the most wonderful shower and bath, and again is fitted to a very good standard. The downstairs of the property is also of generous proportions and is very well thought out. The kitchen / dining space is huge and allows for everyone to be together whilst cooking and eating. Both the living room and dining room benefit from the log fire and it makes the place feel even more homely. There are lovely little touches such as a pint of fresh milk in the fridge along with some tea, coffee, biscuits, chocolates and even a few dog treats on arrival - which are very much appreciated. The outside space is also of a good size and is secure which is very useful when taking a dog. There's ample on street parking for two cars (possibly more) directly outside the property and access to the property is simple and straightforward. We had the best time here, it was lovely and peaceful but also only a short walk to the local shop and amenities. We genuinely can not find fault with anything. We had great communication with the owners, who were friendly and polite. Its safe to say we will be returning next year and we can't wait to do so!!

    We have been staying in cottages all over Britain for many years now and I can say this was one of the best. Beautifully, tastefully furnished, amazing attention to detail, and the most amazing log burner !!! as well as underfloor heating!! Loved the open plan layout downstairs. Fantastic shower in the gorgeous bathroom. Delightful bedrooms with beautiful beds and quality linens. Krissie has thought of everything and much more!.Just fabulous all round

The property

Alston 4.5 miles.

Tucked away in Nenthead, Cumbria, near to the bustling town of Alston, is this contemporary end-terrace cottage, Tree Tops.

Sleeping up to six guests in a spacious property, Tree Tops is ideal for a family or group looking for a getaway in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the North Pennines.

Upon entering the cottage, you are immediately greeted by a bright and airy kitchen/diner, containing everything you need to host a dinner party for friends or family, including a lovely corner couch with a rustic wooden table, double electric oven and Smart TV for entertainment; start the woodburning stove and ease your feet on the underfloor heating after a long day of exploring.

With dinner done and dishes in the dishwasher, retire to the peaceful sitting room just next door for a film night.

Heading upstairs, Tree Tops has three double rooms with storage space for hiking gear or your best going out clothes, as well as a bathroom featuring a large walk-in shower and free-standing bath for a refreshing end to the day.

Back on the ground floor, the French doors in the sitting room lead to a quaint patio with Tree Top’s spectacular stone wall as a backdrop, whilst you enjoy your morning coffee on the picnic bench.

The cottage is just around the corner from a shop, where you can stock up on the essentials, whilst wandering around the quiet Nenthead, which also has the fascinating Nenthead Mines for guided trips underground, the village also hosts The Hive - a converted Weslian Chapel that now is a wonderful licensed cafe, art gallery and craft shop, serving amazing food, cakes and drinks.

For a more bustling village, Alston is a short journey away, with pubs, restaurants and cafes to enjoy, historic cobbled streets to explore and local specialities to try.

A little further south west lies Melmerby, a small village at the foot of the Pennine scar that boasts picturesque views, winding streams and sits at the edge of Eden Valley for spectacular walks.

Just beyond Melmerby, you will find Penrith, a busy town known for its impressive 14th century castle, Roman Museum houses to discover local history and plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing and canoeing, as well as cinemas, leisure and cultural centres.

Resting on the edge of The Lake District, you'll find ample opportunities for walking and watersports.

Perfect for exploring a wonderful area of Cumbria, Tree Tops offers a memorable trip with your loved ones.

About the location


Alston 4.6 miles; Stanhope 15.4 miles; Penrith 24.4 miles.

Nenthead is one of the highest villages in England and has a rich mining history. Many mines still remain which are open to the public and waiting to be discovered. The village was also the first to have electric street lighting due to the excess power created by the mining industry. This is a fantastic base for those looking to explore the area as the village has a pub, restaurant, shop/Post Office, children’s play area and a church set in an elevated position. There are a number of attractions available in the nearby area including taking a ride on one of the lovingly-restored steam and diesel engines through the beautiful scenery of the South Tyne valley on the South Tynedale Railway. The River Tyne is also noted as one of the finest salmon rivers in England and day-ticket fishing is available locally. With the entire North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on your doorstep you will need to return again and again to the area to explore everything there is on offer.
