Long Byres Holiday Cottages are located on a working hill farm in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our six specially designed holiday cottages were converted by the Dean family from the traditional farm buildings in 1979 and are an early example of farm diversification. After being in the family for over 50 years, the 3rd generation (Sam & Helena) are excited to be taking over the running of the holiday cottages from spring 2021

With the next generation taking over the reins, refurbishments are underway in the cottages to update them once again. We hope that all guests, both old and new will enjoy what is to come and that we continue to provide fantastic holiday experiences to all who visit Long Byres Holiday Cottages.  

Over the years, the cottages have evolved and updated to accommodate for all the guest but the fantastic location has remained constant and a biggest attraction. Tucked away in a beautiful corner of the North Pennines, the cottages offer a private and peaceful retreat enabling guests to switch off from the busy world and relax back into nature. With plenty to explore and enjoy on our doorstep along with the accessible location for the Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland National Park, Kielder Forest and much more, we are a gateway to explore some of the most spectacular parts of the UK.
