Isaac's Byre was converted by the owners into a modern cottage from an old barn. It has all the amenities of a new building but has kept some of the historical features. The cottage is situated in the small hamlet of Loaning Head, close to Garrigill village. It is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which features a landscape shaped by nature and by man. From the comfort of the cottage you will see some of the highest fells in the North Pennines, part of the South Tyne valley, farmland and farm animals. You will see miles and miles of hand built dry stone walls, and depending on the time of year you visit you could see a variety of wildlife just a stones throw from the cottage eg red squirrels, deer, hares etc. We have our own hens which can be seen from the cottage windows.
Within five miles of the cottage there are three villages with a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. Garrigill village has a Post office/general store, pub which serves excellent real ales and home cooked food and a private swimming pool with sauna and spa tub which can be booked by the hour.
On the ground floor of the cottage is an open plan kitchen/living/dining room with vaulted ceiling and French doors which open onto the patio and the garden. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom with shower over the bath and a ground floor double or twin bedroom. There is also a boot/drying room just inside the front door. Upstairs is a twin bedroom with adjoining shower room and a double bedroom with en suite shower room. All towels and bed linen are included in cost plus all heating, and firewood for the wood burner. Isaac's Byre is cosy all year round: heated by a ground source heat pump, with the addition of a wood burning stove for those who like to curl up in front of a real fire.
The kitchen is very well equipped ......................
Weekend was brilliant. Lovely house and hosts excellent too. Lots to do in the surrounding area. My daughter especially loved the chickens and sheep
Ein schoenes und sauberes Cottage in ländlicher Umgebung. Wunderschöne Aussicht in die Hügeln. Ein perfekter Platz um zur Ruhe zu kommen. Das Cottage ist gut ausgerüstet mit allem was nötig ist um entspannende Ferien zu haben. Die Vermieter sind freundlich und erreichbar. Es ist möglich um in der Umgebung zu wandern und verschillende Sehenswürdigkeiten zu besuchen. Bei schlechtem Wetten kann man in den Lake District oder an die Ostküste ausweichen. Wir kommen gerne noch einmal zurück !
