MARK CLOSE FARMHOUSE
9 bedrooms, sleeps 19

A traditional farmhouse with wonderful views from the enclosed garden. A fantastic base for large groups wishing to visit Northumberland and the Lakes.

This traditional farmhouse lies half a mile beyond the outskirts of Alston on the borders of Northumbria and Cumbria, central in the North Pennines, an AONB. Alston is said to be England’s highest market town. Fishing, riding and golf nearby. Follow some of the local rambles or the Pennine Way. The glorious coast and countryside of Northumbria is within travelling distance, as are the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Scottish Borders. Water sports at Talkin and Keilder Water. Gateshead, only an hour away, has a large shopping centre with restaurants and ten screen cinema. Or just stay home and relax in front of the fire and eat together with family and friends. Set in a garden, bordered by mature trees with panoramic views over green fields and wild fells. Before it lies the site of an ancient Britain fort, and behind, the Roman’s Maiden Way. The town has a quaint cobbled street with public houses, butchers, bakers and its own candlemaker. An ideal holiday base. Assisted wheelchair users can be accommodated on the ground floor.
