Allenheads is a great place to stay if you are looking for some rest and relaxation. It is set in the North Pennies, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, perfect for walking, cycling and hiking. Besides the natural wild beauty of the countryside, the landscape is full of clues to the lead-mining history of the village and the surrounding communities of East and West Allendale, Weardale and Teesdale.
The high grouse moors attract visitors from far and wide. The cross country route through the Lake District from the Irish Sea, in the west, to the North Sea, in the east, provides an irresistible cycling challenge for some. Walkers may be drawn by the unspoilt natural environment and the wildlife it supports or by the rich industrial history of the area. Some people just want the peace, quiet and natural simplicity of the place.
