About the neighbourhood
Allenheads is a village in Northumberland just as the county meets Cumbria and Durham. We are situated in the Pennines to the north of Weardale. Allenheads is situated 8 miles further along the river East Allen from Allendale. Being a former lead mining community, it is widely believed that it would not have existed if it wasn't for the industry, it being too high for other types of settlement.
Getting around
Car recommended but the house can be accessed by bus from Hexham Rail Station also.
