About Us

Tranquility in the North Pennines

We live in the beautiful and historic Hill Top House, and want to share its tranquility and peace with you. 

Hill Top Haven is a rural retreat offering wellbeing and creative activities, both accompanied and self-led. 

Coaching and mindfulness are led by a qualified coach and teacher.
Or, book yourself in as a B&B guest and spend quality alone time.

If you'd prefer more space we also have the newly opened Mandy's Cottage next to Hilltop Haven.

Explore the moors and the dales of the North Pennines, from our location on the border of Durham, Cumbria and Northumberland.

However you explore Hill Top, we're sure you'll leave refreshed and ready to face the world again.
