Description

A cosy retreat for couples, and includes a four poster bed. Great walking to be enjoyed with the Pennine Way on the doorstep.

These three, 18th century barn conversions, (refs 80043, 28645, 28646) are located just 1 mile from the market town of Alston, one of the highest towns in the country and a charming backdrop to many a period film and TV series. Situated behind the owner’s home, these holiday cottages offer comfortable accommodation with their own sitting-out areas. This is a good base for exploring Tynedale and the North Pennines by foot, bicycle or car, with many places of interest to visit, including Alston’s narrow gauge railway, Pennine Pottery and local crafts. The Pennine Way runs past the door, with walks in all directions. Alston, with its quaint cobbled main street, has a range of individual shops, character inns, restaurants and tea rooms. Within the area is an historical Roman fort and tourists will enjoy the museums, exhibitions and sites along Hadrian’s Wall. The Lake District, Beamish Museum, Newcastle, the Metro Centre, Carlisle and the Scottish Borders are all within driving distance. Ideal for families or friends to get together, these properties (red 80043, 28645 and 28646) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. First floor: 1 double (four poster) galleried bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    This was such a lovely place to stay. The owners were very friendly, the cottage was clean, cozy, very warm and seriously sweet. The local town of Alston has two mini markets, Co-op and Spar that were very handy and only 5 mins diwn the road. The location was incredibly peaceful, although being the end cottage next to the hot tub, it might be a bit rowdy in summer? Unless you're the one using it of course. My only problem and the only reason this isn't a 10 across the board is that there really isn't anywhere close by to walk a big dog unless you want to patrol the road and take your life in your own hands with the speedy traffic. There are a lot of walks close by but they involve traversing walls and tight chicanes', which a big dog obviously can't do. So we had to travel quite a bit to find open spaces, which there are plenty of if you're willing to travel 15-20 miles away from the cottage, but a bit of a pain if you wanted to stay local. All this is kind of mute if you have a little/medium sized dog though, and I'm sure you'll love it.

    A nice warm welcome, coffee, tea milk and biscuits to welcome us. Really could do with WiFi access for guest even if extra charge applied for it.

    At around a mile from Alston, it is ideally placed for walking the western and eastern fells in the North Pennines. The cottage is modern, well equipped, comfortable and has plenty of room for two people. In short, it was ideal for my purposes.
