Cotterill Barn

Welcome to our beautiful cottage Cotterill Barn in the beautiful, but also inaccessible landscape of the North Pennines.
Cotterill Barn was a barn of Cotterill Farm, the ruin next to the barn, and was probably built in the second half of the 19th century. The barn is shown on the map from 1901, which hangs near the stairs. In 2009 the barn, also a ruin, was built as a holiday home.

Description of the Barn
The ground floor consists of a hall with stairs, a large room with open kitchen, which is equipped with a 4-burner electric comfort and a dishwasher. In the room is a sofa bed for a possible 5th person. On the other side of the room there is a 'utility', where the fridge, washer / dryer and microwave are located. This "utility" also has a door to the outside and gives access to a toilet with a "butler" sink.
Upstairs are two bedrooms "en-suite". One bathroom has a toilet, sink and bathtub, the other a toilet, sink and shower. There is a double bed in both bedrooms.
There is parking for two to three cars in the yard of the Barn.
The range for the mobile phone is reasonable. There is internet connection. You will search in vain for a television, but you may not miss it.


Area
The barn is located in the North Pennines, in 1988 declared an Area of ??Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is an open landscape with heathland and grassland, where sheep graze in the late summer to spring and hay is collected in the summer. Characteristic are the dry stone walls and the remaining structures of the lead and silver mines. Nenthead was the center of mining and has an interesting museum about this. The village was built in the middle of the 18th century by the Quakers for the miners. The community shop in the village was the library, where education was also given. Nenthead boasts one of the highest villages in England (1500 feet) and the village with the first street lighting. It is also an important stopping place for the Coast to Coast (C2C) bicycle route.

Weather
Who chooses the North Pennines as a holiday destination, chooses nature, walking, wind and silence. Because the Barn is high (1500 feet), it can be colder than you might expect. It is therefore good to take this into account with clothing.

The groceries
Down in the village is the Community Shop (5 minutes walk). Here you can find the basic necessities of life, including a newspaper. For more extensive shopping, Alston (10 miles) is the first opportunity. Here are also the VVV (diagonally opposite the church), a bank (HSBC) and an Outdoor Shop. Larger purchases are possible in Hexham (40 miles) or Penrith (50 miles). And of course in Newcastle and Carlisle.

Meals outdoors
Closest to home is The Miners Arms, the Nenthead pub. They have a simple card. There seems to be a good restaurant in Overwater (on the other side of the road) but this was always closed (only open in the summer?) If we were there.
From our own experience we can recommend: Nenthall (on the street road halfway Alston), Alston house (in Alston at the market left, T-junction left), and Allendale Inn (market square Allendale, 12 mile).
But we recommend ourselves for other experiences.

Out on it.
In the house is a folder with all sorts of tips and ideas. Close to home are the High Force waterfall, the little train in Alston, the Killhope mines, Hadrian's wall (the wall of Emperor Hadrian) of which there are still parts to see between Newcastle and Carlisle and the Roman army place 'Vindolanda' recommended.
Hexham and Corbridge (about 45 minutes drive to the North East) are nice places. The first has a beautiful Abbey and also a few superstores such as Tesco and Waitrose.
The other way (to the West) is Penrith. Also a nice place (with a castle ruin). The descent (Hartside) is already worthwhile with panoramic views towards the Lake District. From Penrith it is about 15 minutes drive to lake Ullswater.
To the east is Durham with its impressive cathedral. North of Durham is Newcastle, the largest city in the region. North West of the barn is Carlisle, an industrial town with a beautiful cathedral and a large castle. Closer to home is Langley Castle where delicious tea can be drunk in a medieval setting.

We warmly welcome you to our site and perhaps in our paradisiacal "Little Barn". England is our second homeland and the purchase of the Barn meant a lot to us. We fell, summer 2009, immediately as a block for the cottage (which was then almost finished) and the unique location. The combination of rugged nature, no nonsense atmosphere of this region and 'cozy' and warm Barn, is unbeatable. After long walks relax with book, music, candles, wine or whiskey? Goodbye, Mars & Nelleke

Additional information

CUMBRIA

The horizon can not be measured,
the land of eternity made.
The hills have forgotten the time,
the present is never awakened here.

Here hats wind and clouds peace.
Immensely rich and here is the rest,
in Cumbria, this British Eden,
in the middle between coast and coast.

Experience the supreme retreat
in a charming barn
with bath, heating and kitchenette,
and book a week. It's not expensive.

The village is located in Nenthead (on) the Pennines and is not easily accessible by public transport. There is rarely a bus from Carlisle.

The best way to get there is by car.

Sports enthusiasts can choose the bike because Nenthead lies along the C2C (Coast to Coast or also called Sea to Sea) cycle route.

From the Netherlands / Belgium there are ferry connections, namely Ymuiden-Newcastle and Europoort / Zeebrugge - Hull. From Newcastle is just over an hour drive to and from Hull Nenthead about three hours.

Fly and then rent a car is also possible.

We are happy to assist you in making a travel choice.

    Wat een mooi huisje op een geweldige plek!
    Werkelijk van alle gemakken voorzien huisje. De eigenaren hebben de Barn weten om te bouwen in een knusse plek waar het fijn toeven is.
    Bij elke slaapkamer een badkamer, met douche of bad en toilet. Een vaatwasser en wasmachine. Wij waren als echtpaar (65 en 54 jaar) met dochter en een vriendin van haar (20 jaar). Vanuit de Barn hebben we veel tochten gemaakt, binnen de Pennines en naar de omliggende en verder gelegen natuurgebieden (Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, North York). Ook Schotland hebben we bezocht. Vanwege gezondheidsproblemen helaas niet in staat om flinke wandelingen te maken in de mooie natuur, dus voor autoritten met korte wandelingen gekozen. Er is genoeg moois te zien! Heerlijk die rust, ruimte en natuur. Vriendelijke bevolking en weinig toeristen.
    We hadden een heerlijke tijd in de Cotterill Barn en kan het iedereen aanraden!
