  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is best if helpers have a car as nearest bus is three miles away in Allendale, but we can collect from there or Hexham if no car. We are 13 miles from the town of Hexham with abbey, restaurants, cinema, art centre and pubs; and 9 miles from Alston - the highest market town in England.
    We are quiet, friendly and considerate of guests and expect visitors to be the same. No smokers please.
