    “We had an amazing time, a lovely place to stay with plenty of beautiful walks in the local area.”

    The wine, biscuits and sweets (for our children) were a really nice welcome ...and I loved relaxing in the hot tub after our windy (and sometimes) wet walks.

The property

St John's Chapel 1.4 miles.

Boasting a beautiful exterior of cedar-cladding and stone, this enchanting cottage can be found within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making a superb base for a rural retreat.

With countryside views and an equally as stunning interior, it makes a fantastic holiday abode for you and your loved ones at any time of year.

On the ground floor you can find the sitting room, boasting rustic charm with a warming woodburning stove at its centre, here you can sit back and relax as the sunlight from the floor-to-ceiling windows fills the room, the perfect spot to unwind and spend quality time with your partner.

Sit together as a group within the kitchen/diner, a spacious spot where you can keep the chef of the group company at the glass top dining table as they prepare a lovingly-made meal for the group with the help of the good range of appliances on offer.

When the evening draws to a close, retreat to one of the three bedrooms to rest your head; with one boasting its own en-suite, as well as the first-floor bedrooms offering wonderful views to wake up to each morning out of the skylight windows.

Take a breath of fresh air in your own private garden, with a rejuvenating cup of coffee in hand as your canine companions stretch their legs on the lawn.

The local village of Ireshopeburn makes a great base for those seeking a tranquil retreat, however for all of your local amenities, the nearby village of St John's Chapel provides everything you could need on your self-catered stay including a shop, pubs and Post Office.

Positioned within the North Pennines AONB, you're ideally positioned for walking, cycling and birdwatching, as well as nearby Alston being perfect for a day rich in history by exploring its museum and the South Tynedale Railway.

With access to the bustling city of Durham and all of its excitement, Briar Barn is perfect for your luxury retreat to this captivating area of England.

About the location


Stanhope 7 miles; Middleton-in-Tees 12 miles; Alston 12.5 miles

This quaint County Durham village sits in Weardale in the heart of the North Pennines AONB, an area known for its excellent bird watching, cycling and walking. As well as two friendly village pubs, one serving food, St John's Chapel offers a Post Office, a shop and a couple of cafés. The nearby market town of Stanhope sits on the fringes of the AONB and offers a wider choice of amenities and an outdoor pool. The magnificent city of Durham is slightly further afield but well worth a visit, laced with tremendous architecture and much to see and do.
