Where you’ll be

Wearhead, England, United Kingdom

A warm and cosy stay awaits at Newfield, a self-catering AirBnB set in the side of Sedling Fell. Newfield is very close to the spot where County Durham, Northumberland, and Cumbria meet, each with their own distinctive traditions and appeal.

Nearby attractions include the Killhope Lead Mining Centre, the charming and historic towns of Barnard Castle, Hexham, Stanhope and Alston (including the South Tynedale Steam Railway), and breathtaking waterfalls including High Force (30 minutes drive) and Ashgill Force (20 minutes drive).

The surrounding landscape inspired many of the writings of W H Auden, who called this UNESCO Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty "England's Last Wilderness". Most evidence of our rich mining heritage has now been reclaimed by nature, but old chimneys and mills can still be seen.

The area is popular with:

- Bird watchers (including the rare black grouse and distinctive curlew)
- Stargazers (we have some of the darkest skies in the UK, and are a designated dark sky discovery site)
- Cyclists (we are on the 'Weardale Option' of the C2C cycle route)
- Motorcyclists (winding roads with beautiful views)
- Walkers (many local routes with varying terrains)
- Writers (the silence around Newfield is incredible)
- Anyone looking for a rural escape with attractions just a short drive away if needed

Drew and Robin live next door to Newfield - we leave our guests in total privacy unless you need our help for any reason, when you'll find us nearby. We share our home with Dulcie and Marra, our two small and friendly dogs. Drew is a professional classical musician, and Robin works in the online learning sector. We were drawn to the area by its big skies, stunning wildlife and friendly people. We've been enchanted by the North Pennines, and trust you will be too!
