Stayed here as part of our family C2C trip. Very welcoming hosts who helped a great deal with wet stuff and stored bikes securely. Rooms were clean, and showers OK, but needs some serious updating- it's not as grand as it sounds! Breakfast was lovely and again very accommodating to all tastes. Overall lovely, but not as good as some... More

Very friendly, warm and comfortable. Beautiful setting in the north Pennines: ideal for walking as well as for C2C cyclists. Richard and Laura were very welcoming to our group; very flexible; excellent breakfasts; warm and clean rooms and a nice lounge for guests. Wet clothing/boots were whisked away to dry in the boiler room. Excellent local eateries too in Alston... More

From the moment we arrived Laura could not do enough for us, 3 of our group were cycling the coast to coast and this place is ideal - , secure garage for all our gear, beautiful rooms and lashings of hot water for tired cyclists. The rooms are all en-suite, and even have hand made throws on the very comfy... More

We stayed for two nights, breaking a long journey north; we were made very welcome and Laura and Richard were more than helpful providing useful local information. Lowbyer Manor is very comfortable with a lovely garden and the setting on the edge of Alston makes it easy to walk in to the town. It would be a good base to... More

Stopped here for two nights in a single room as a base for some cycling in the area. I was very impressed with pretty much everything, great friendly hosts, lockable bicycle storage, location relative to centre of Alston as well as a nice comfortable room with facilities for tea making etc. The bathroom was finished to a high standard, albeit...

Just returned from a fabulous 3nt stay at Lowbyer Manor. Laura and her husband really go the extra mile in every respect here. Comfy beds, beautiful linen and top quality oils etc, in the bathroom. This is a gracious and homely guest house, and Laura and her husband are always on hand to chat about the town, where to visit,... More

Stayed here due to a mix up at another B&B, very clean, comfy, great breakfast and very very quiet! which is good when you need a good nights sleep!! I am guessing the "football pub" we were meant to stay in would not have been so quiet!

Lowbyer was the perfect start to our final week on the Pennine Way, walked over 3 years. Lovely welcome from Laura after our long taxi, train and bus journey from the South West. Clean and airy rooms and a comfy guest lounge available. Everything you could possible want was thought of, even our filled water bottles chilled in the fridge.... More

We were cycling the C2C and stayed here for one night. We arrived soaking wet and very tired. After putting our bikes in safe storage and checking in, we were offered a coffee in the main lounge - I've never been offered a coffee in a B&B, so was pleasantly surprised. The twin room we stayed in wasn't huge, but... More
