Loads of character in a lovely little village. The owners were very welcoming, there's a proper lock-up garage for the bikes and the breakfast was great too. Some of the rooms allow dogs, so it's a possible spot for the family in the future. I would defo stay again.,

Upon arrival our welcome was warm our rooms were ready and our bags already delivered to our rooms which were very comfortable with good views and facilities. Laura couldn’t have been more helpful upon our arrival and willingly looking after our needs including... More

absolutely would stay here again, very warm welcome into the guest house, 4 of us had just finished the first day of the coast to coast, Laura was expecting us and we got our bikes locked up straight away. All our rooms were fantastic, just what we needed after a hard days cycling. Cosy bar for relaxing drinks, and a... More

Set with a beautiful view out of the window of rolling hills, the rooms were spotless. Bed was comfortable, nothing was too much trouble for the owner. Access to a beautiful lounge. This truely is the perfect place to go and wind down. I will most definitely be going again. I was half tempted to move in. And the breakfasts... More

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...
