Skilfully undertaken and refurbished to a high standard the holiday property retains charm and character offering a mix of traditional structure and contemporary design. They stand proudly across the courtyard from the owner’s home and 1800-acre working sheep farm in the North Pennine Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
