"Dear Charles and Dee, when we found your cottage on the internet what we saw was a log fire, nice kitchen and a cosy atmosphere. We got all of that plus a very warm welcome, lots of peace and quiet and a comfy bed! Spectacular New Years Eve seeing burning barrels in Alendale, anyone here at this time next year Must go! Thank you very much indeed."

A Living History
Southlands is a small, 37-acre working farm with a story stretching back hundreds of years. We believe the farmhouse is one of a handful of mediaeval Northumbrian longhouses built during the reign of Henry VIII.
These days, the cottages are a little more insulated than they might have been then, and a lot more comfortable for our guests!
