About The Knowe
The property dates back to 1630 and is situated at the north end of the Bewcastle Valley with views of the fells towards Kieldar Forest. We have a Shetland Pony stud, a small flock of sheep and a extensive vegetable garden, set in 40 acres of land.
The B&B Suite
The B&B suite has been completely renovated to a high standard and comprises of a large bedroom with a super king size bed which can be made up as a twin on request. There is a spacious shower room, kitchenette, a large comfortable sitting room with a flat screen T.V and a dining area. The sofa turns into a comfortable double bed which can be used for an additional charge. Wi-Fi is available but due to our remoteness it is a little unreliable. The accommodation is all on one level with just three steps from the patio up to the private entrance. We provide a generous continental style breakfast which you can enjoy at your leisure. We are unable to cater for specific dietary requirements but the kitchenette allows you to bring and prepare your own food if necessary. If this is the case the price per night would obviously be reduced.
Guests are welcome to occupy the B&B suite during the day if staying more than one night and we are able to offer a discount for stays over two nights. We are unable to take Credit/Debit cards so payment is by cheque, bank transfer or cash. Sorry no children or pets. Arrival can be after 12:00 and departure before 11:00 on your last day but these are flexible with prior arrangement.
Please contact us for rates and availability.
