Bed & Breakfast at 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 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 lounge/ dining room with a T.V.  The accommodation is all on one level with just three steps from the patio up to the private entrance.  We provide a continental style breakfast which you can enjoy at your leisure.

The sky on a clear night is stunning as we are situated on the fringe of the Kielder Dark Sky Park. The route 10 cycle route is nearby and there are several quiet walks within the valley giving the opportunity for bird watching or simply enjoying this lovely little known area. The Bewcastle Cross and Church are also nearby providing interesting local history and only 8 miles from Hadrians Wall.  Newcastleton lies 8 miles away to the north travelling through the lovely scenery of the Scottish Borders with shops, cafes, pubs and the Reivers Museum. The Knowe is 12 miles from the market town of Brampton and only 3.2 miles from Maddy’s Stones Barn.

There are no public transport links to The Knowe, so you will need your own transport.

Our rates are £100 per night including continental style breakfast, based on two people sharing with a discount for stays over two nights.  Guests are welcome to occupy the B&B suite during the day if staying more than one night.

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 1.00pm and departure before 11:00am on your last day but these are flexible with prior arrangement.

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.
