Country House Hotel with 12 rooms £100-£140 pppnb

Nenthead Road,


Nenthead Road,


Lovelady Shield. The name conjures up an image of the peace and tranquillity that you will certainly find in this gracious country house hotel. Set beside a river in a wooded valley high in the Pennines, just 2 1/4 miles from Alston (England's highest market town), this quiet retreat is an ideal situation for exploring the border country, the Lake District, Hadrian's Wall and the Yorkshire Dales. Only 35 minutes from the Penrith exit of the M6, via the dramatic A686 - one of the world's top drives - it is a very pleasant stopover.

The owners, Mr & Mrs Haynes, together with their friendly staff, are maintaining the hotel's tradition of warm hospitality and service.

The rooms in the extension have every comfort and amenity: DVD/CD players, power showers in the bathrooms and squishy duvets.

Chef Barrie Garton produces imaginative and beautifully presented meals and has been awarded AA for his cooking. Service in the pretty dining room is discreet and attentive. The hotel is well furnished and welcoming, with log fires. There are two self-catering cottages in the grounds. A very peaceful spot.

Lovelady Shield is open all year.
