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). Don't miss an evening meal here as the cooking is excellent and we liked the atmospheric and well stocked wee bar just... More

Fantastic hospitality from the owners. They fixed us a truly scrumptious evening meal; I'm not a salad lover but the meal included the best salad I have ever taster! Bedroom really comfy - the only thing I'd say is the wifi wasn't good. Need some wifi boosters probably.

Lowbyer Manor is a lovely old historic building, located just outside the lower side of Alston, not far from the railway station. It offers accommodation at surprisingly low prices. My room overlooked a courtyard where I'm sure horses and carriages once came and went. It's under new management and I got a hearty welcome and was shown to a pleasant... More

Looking for a one night stopover enroute to our holiday we booked Lowbyer Manor and we definitely made the right choice! From the first step through the door we were made so welcome by Jim and Janice. The rooms are lovely and the evening meal cooked by Janice herself superb. So relaxing after a long drive not to have to... More

Hosts exceptionally wonderful people made us feel at home. Booked evening meal, and fantastic fresh home made food. I explained my diet requirements and had something off the menu, the freshest fish I've ever eaten.... More

Great welcome from Jim and his team. Nothing was a bother. Sorted out our bikes and provided liquid refreshment even before check in. After 80 miles on the bike that was a welcome relief. Rooms excellent, evening meal and breakfast the same. Highly recommended.
