Cotterill Barn

Welcome to our beautiful holiday Cotterill Barn in the stunning North Pennines. A landscape of open heather moors and peatlands, attractive dales and hay meadows. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cotterill barn was a barn of Cotterill Farm, the derelict building next to the barn, and was probably built in the second half of the 19th century. The barn is shown on a map dated 1901, close to the front door. In 2009, the derelict barn, was rebuilt into a holiday home. Description of the Barn The ground floor comprises entrance hall with stairs, a large living room with open well-equipped kitchen. In the room is a sofa bed for a 5th person if necessary. A utility room with fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and microwave. Downstairs toilet with butler sink. Upstairs are two bedrooms "en-suite". One bathroom has a toilet, sink and bathtub, the other a toilet, sink and shower cubicle. Both bedrooms have a double bed. Outside there is enough parking space for two or three cars. The signal for mobile phones is reasonable. There is internet connection. The Barn doesn't have a television. Area The North Pennines was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1988 for its moorland scenery, the product of centuries of farming and lead-mining. At almost 2,000 square kilometres (770 sq mi) it is the second largest of the 49 AONBs in the United Kingdom. The landscape of the North Pennines AONB is one of open heather moors between deep dales, upland rivers, hay meadows and stone-built villages, some of which contain the legacies of a mining and industrial past. The area shares a boundary with the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the south and extends as far as the Tyne Valley, just south of Hadrian's Wall in the north. Typical are the "dry stone walls" and the remaining buildings of the lead and silver mines. The small village of Nenthead was built in the mid 18th century by the Quakers for the miners. The community shop in the village was the library meant for education. Nenthead is England’s highest village at 1500 feet. It was a major centre for lead and silver mining, and in its time had the most productive lead mine in the country. It is also an important place for the Coast to Coast (C2C) cycle route. Weather Choosing the North Pennines as a holiday destination, means choosing for nature, for walking, for wind and for peace and quiet. Because the barn looks down on Nenthead valley which is itself 1500 feet of altitude, it can get colder than you might expect. Bring warm, water and windproof clothes. The messages Down in the village is the Community Shop (5 minute walk). Here you can go for the basic necessities of life, including a newspaper. For more serious shopping, Alston (10 miles) is the first opportunity. Here are also the tourist office (opposite the church), a bank (HSBC) and an Outdoor Shop. Even more serious shopping is possible in Hexham (40 miles) or Penrith (50 miles). And of course in Newcastle and Carlisle. Meals outdoors The closest to home is The Miners Arms, the pub of Nenthead. Their menu is rather basic. From our own experience we can recommend: Alston house ( opposite the Spar), the Cumberland Arms and Allendale Inn (market Allendale, 12 mile).

A warm welcome to our (*CONTENT HIDDEN*) and perhaps to our precious "Little Barn". After spending many holidays in the UK, the purchase of the Barn meant a lot to us. Summer 2009, we fell in love with both Barn and the unique location. The combination, or contrast if you like, of rugged nature, no nonsense atmosphere of Alston Moor and the comfort and 'coziness' of the Barn, is unbeatable. After long walks relax with book, music, candles, wine or whisky.

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!

    We hebben een hele goede tijd gehad in Cotterill Barn. Het huis staat op een mooie plek. Je kijkt vanuit alle ramen uit op een prachtig heuvellandschap. Heerlijk om direct vanuit het huis te kunnen wandelen door de velden. Het eten in de pub in het dorp is prima. Het contact met de verhuurder, voordat de vakantie begon, verliep prettig. Erg fijn dat er een goede wasmachine in het huis staat. Ook heel prettig dat bepaalde basisproducten in het huis aanwezig zijn en dat beddengoed en handdoeken zijn inbegrepen.

    Zojuist terug van een heerlijke vakantie, waarbij de week in De Cotterill Barn eruit sprong. De Barn staat in een prachtige omgeving en de sfeer in en om het huis is geweldig. Een aanrader voor mensen die de stilte op willen zoeken. Als je van wandelen houdt zijn er in dit gebied van Noord Engeland mogelijkheden genoeg. Wij hebben diverse wandelingen gemaakt en vanuit de Barn meerdere keren een avondwandeling in het prachtige avondlicht dat het landschap een mystieke sfeer geeft. Er waren koude dagen bij, maar de kachel in de Barn hoef je maar even aan te hebben, het huis is snel opgewarmd. De voorzieningen in het huis waren sowieso erg goed. Daarbij opgeteld het prettige contact met de eigenaren, brengt de beoordeling van het verblijf vanzelf op de tien!
