    We had a pleasant stay at Widows cottage. The owners were lovely, very friendly and helpful. The cottage itself was lovely, very snug and set in a lovely location. The bedrooms were set up very well and there was plenty of blankets and extra bedding available. The lounge was gorgeous with big comfy sofas and a beautiful log burning fire. We enjoyed this room the most! The village Alston is just a quick drive away with a Co-op shop, fish and chip shop, Spar and a few individual shops and a couple of pubs. If I was to say how the cottage could be improved, I’d recommend an upgrade to the tv and DVD player, we had to go out and buy a DVD player as the one included was broke. The owner did try to rectify the problem and was as helpful as he could be at short notice. The enclosed garden was perfect for our little dog and I’d recommend this cottage to others with pets.

    Excellent cottage very peaceful pictueresque area , lovely Christmassy feel with snow and ice everywhere and the local town lilt up with Christmas lights , we eat at the angel pub 400 years old with great food, friendly atmosphere and roaring coal fire , cottage clean , owners are amazingly polite friendly people , and even helped us when our car got stuck in ice and snow , we have stayed in dozens of uk cottages and would strongly recomend this one , there are so many scenic panoramic driving routes , and wildlife to spot we enjoyed seeing a red squirrel close to the cottage perched on a stone wall in the snow . As well as birds of prey . The cottage was well equipped warm and cosy with a very warm log/coal fire . Highly recomended by mr and mrs lester and family thank you

    We are quite fussy and even if we enjoy a place we don't usually go back to the same place(we like to try different places). But we would go back to Widows Cottage; very nice with a very nice host. Didn't give it 10 out of 10 across the board but we score very carefully and we score this cottage very highly.
