Lowbyer Manor was built in the late eighteenth century and is a Grade II listed Georgian Manor House. The guest house has 9 en-suite bedrooms, each with tea and coffee making facilities and colour televisions. The Manor is open all year round unless otherwise noted on the website.
The guest can select a room from single up to our superior king size (U.S./Canadian Queen) for your comfort. For example, the romantic Stuart room has exposed beam ceilings, a king size bed and a magnificent view across the South Tyne River valley. The Derwentwater room features a king sized four poster bed and the room overlooks the front garden; which is the home to a large Sequoia tree.
Also many of the beds are covered with quilts, handmade by a relative of the current owners.
Lowbyer Manor Country House is situated in Alston, in the North Pennines, on the upper reaches of the South Tyne River. Alston 'a little gem of a town' and the highest market town in England, grew up as the centre of the lead mining industry over four hundred years ago.
Alston features narrow, cobbled streets, quaint shops, a number of great pubs and tea houses, with fine menus, and our beautifully maintained (all volunteer) narrow gauge railway and model train museum, both of which are must sees! All nestled in the picturesque valley of the South Tyne and Nent Rivers.
Alston and our guest house is the perfect centre point for exploring the north of England and the Borders with Scotland... Come, and discover England's best kept secret!
