Stayed 2 nights here while on Pennine Way. Very good accommodation. Lovely breakfast, nice big rooms. Taxi in Garrigill picked us up and dropped us off and also used the South Tynedale Railway to Lintley to walk the Pennine Way back to Alston. A very enjoyable stay and the cider was a great finish at the end of the walk... More

Location good and Alston delightful (with good pubs for eating). As we had a dog, we were in the Coach House where the WIFI was virtually non--existant, otherwiose a good stay. Hosts were very welcoming and breakfast was great

One of the best B&Bs we have stayed in! A beautiful old house, elegantly furnished. Very friendly owners and a great breakfast. Marvellous views of red squirrels in the garden. We liked the green credentials and the great thought that has gone into providing everything you may need. Particularly nice to have tea in the lounge on arrival.

This was our second visit to Lowbyer and we were once again not disappointed. We were made very welcome by Richard and Laura on our arrival and given tea and biscuits in the Guest Room. The Twin bedded room was a good size and very clean and tidy. One of the the best breakfasts ever, with a wide ranging choice... More

Very enjoyable stay at Lowbyer. A very warm welcome. We had chosen the Derwentwater room, overlooking the c150 year old 100 foot high sequoia tree. Whilst we did not see red squirrels we did see a woodpecker pecking away before in the morning, before breakfast. The room was 'cozy' rather than large but like the rest of the hotel had... More

Very disappointed, rooms are small and v dated decor. Mould behind window shutter. Shower awful no pressure at all. Lounge and dining room are like a care home. Bed small with springs coming through. Way over priced. Breakfast was basic Friendly owners but come on guys update or reduce your prices

Thank you for your review, sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. We are disappointed with some of your comments as they do not reflect the rest of the feedback that we have had for the property. The bed is a standard sized double with a mattress topper, we will check the mattress thoroughly and change it... More

We stayed for 3 nights during a period of mixed weather. Our room was warm and comfortable and Laura & Richard friendly and helpful. Laura gave us lots of local information and contacts. The facilities were good - we especially liked the lounge and bar. Breakfast was amazing and really set us up for the day. Loved the quilts and... More

We stayed in this lovely B&B in Alston. The proprietors Laura & Richard made us very welcome and the small bar within was just the ticket when we arrived after a full day of travelling. My bed was comfy and the whole place was clean and full of character. We asked if we could have a slightly earlier breaky on... More

Stayed one night while doing the coast to coast bike ride and passing through Alston. We arrived late feeling very wet and cold and Laura was extremely friendly and helpful she even leant me a fleece to walk to the pub in as the temperature outside had dropped significantly. Breakfast was fantastic exactly what we needed when embarking on the... More

My third visit to Alston and the best experience yet, from the warm welcome and offer of tea or coffee on arrival to the hearty breakfast prior to departure. Though the single room was compact it was well fitted out, an attractive home made quilt adding to its charm. A generous hospitality tray was complete with biscuits, mints and bottled... More
