A unique experience in the last wilderness in England, The North Pennines AONB

Stay in a converted Mine Shop now a Scheduled Ancient Monument surrounded by wonderful unspoilt countryside and wildlife.

Our building was originally where the local mines had their blacksmiths and living accommodation on the first floor. In its heyday, the Barney Craig Mine Shop was the largest in the area. The mines closed, and people moved away from the area, with mother nature returning and reclaiming the land. The upper floor now provides accommodation for those looking to explore and enjoy this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The river West Allen flows by, with the moors and fells rising above the valley. These areas are now home to some beautiful wildlife, including endangered birds that migrate here each Spring to raise their family.
Alongside the natural wonders that the area has to offer, there are museums that give an insight into the mining that took place in these valleys. Going back further in time there are Roman remains to be found at places such as Epiacum, Vindolanda, Housesteads and Hadrian’s Wall.
There are a range of walks or runs that will take you along valleys or over the moors; alternatively, take to your bike and enjoy the quiet country lanes with a new view around every corner.
