Wonderful old manor with loads of rustic character- quite a find! The Proprieters could not have been more friendly and helpful when we arrived late and tired whilst cycling C2C. Rooms are I individually decorated and very comfortable with copious hot water. Residents lounge is large and comfortable. Four floors and no lift, so be prepared for stairs. Good wifi,... More

We arrived after a very long and delayed drive down from Mull and received a warm welcome from Janice and a complimentary drink which was much appreciated. Our room was very spacious and comfortable but the highlight for us was the evening meal. The menu is fairly short but all the better for that as you know everything is fresh.... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday and all three courses were outstanding. The quality and standard of food is excellent and it is personally sourced and generally local. We felt very fortunate tonight that the bar was full of locals, a couple of good musicians and singers made for a great atmosphere. The whole team are really friendly and... More

We were made to feel very welcome. The room was lovely and the owners also allow pets in certain rooms at a very small charge. The location was excellent close to shops and pubs. They also had their own bar in the guest house which was very nice and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent. Lovely stay we would like to... More

We stayed at Lowbyer Manor on Day 2 of a C2C adventure staying as a party of six. Exhausted after the 2,000ft climb we were warmly welcomed and enjoyed a well deserved and excellent evening meal. The accommodation is clean but a little tired in places as the owners work their way through the property. Having set off for day... More

A friend had heard that Lowbyer Manor had started serving drinks,so a group of us cautiously ventured out to the edge of town. The bar is situated in a cosy little nook downstairs. It is decorated beautifully with fascinating local artefacts and perhaps because it is quite small it has a wonderful atmosphere. The landlord is really friendly and welcoming... More

We stayed in Alston because we (2 female friends) wanted to see the crystal artworks - spar boxes - at Killhope Lead Mining Museum about 10 miles away. We were delighted with this B&B. It's a beautiful Georgian stone manor house in the traditional Pennine style, in rural surroundings not far from Alston town centre. The hosts are friendly, welcoming... More

Beautiful accommodation, lovely hosts, relaxing atmosphere what more could you ask for! We were given the choice of standard or more luxurious room in this interesting house full of history, we chose a superior room but peeked at others ..... all terrific value I think. Three of their rooms are dog friendly I understand but you must have a well... More

My wife and I had a perfect stay at Lowbyer Manor for 5 nights last week made all the more enjoyable by our very welcoming and friendly hosts Jim & Janice (nothing was too much trouble for them).
