Stonecrop Cottage Access Statement

We aim to cater for the needs of all visitors to our holiday cottage, such as our buildings will allow. If there are any specific request please feel free to contact us either by phone or email.

Arrival and Parking

On arrival at Stonecrop you will find that there is a tarmac road outside on which you may park on the verge. It is a very quiet road. You enter then garden through a wicket gate and the path between the road and the front door is sandstone.

The path is lit at the front by a streetlight and there are lights along the side (with remote sensor) and a second light by the back door.


There are no steps as such into the house although there is a stairway and handrail leading to the first floor. Here are two double rooms and a smaller single room with bunk beds. There is a bathroom with WC, handbasin and shower above the bath.

Downstairs is a kitchen with separate small cloakroom off, with WC and handbasin plus oil boiler. There is a sitting room with log stove and separate small study at the front. The internal doorways each have low head height.

Dogs are permitted in Stonecrop although they are required to stay downstairs at all times and kept off the furniture. Note restrictions on being kept under close supervision at all times and particular care should be taken to ensure that they do not gain access into the neighbouring fields.

Located in the tall cupboard off the kitchen is a torch in case there is a power cut or other emergency. Fire extinguishers are located in the outside shed by the road and in the downstairs WC. Smoke alarms are located throughout the property and are tested on a weekly basis.


The nearest shops are in Haltwhistle or Alston. Pubs serving food and drink can be found at Featherstone or Knaresdale.

Outside Stonecrop - for guests convenience

There is a small paved patio by the back door and on the side of the Cottage. Smoking is not allowed inside the property. Please let us know if you have any special requirements and we will do our best to accommodate them.
