Stunning conversion

Set in a quiet area just off the cobbled main street in Alston, this terraced holiday cottage was formerly the home of a farm labourer. Originally built in 1611 the property has now been sympathetically restored whilst retaining much of its character and charm. The beam above the fireplace dates back over a thousand years, and was previously part of an ancient ship! The property boasts an upstairs balcony with a sun room, perfect for relaxing and watching the sun set. On the border of Cumbria and Northumbria, Alston is the highest market town in England, and is ideal for touring the northern lakes, Yorkshire Dales and Northumbria. Within easy driving distance are Hadrians Wall, Hexham, Newcastle, the Metro Centre, Beamish Museum, Ullswater or Keswick. Alston lies within an AONB with the Pennine Way running close to the cottage, and spectacular scenery all around. There is a range of traditional pubs and shops, local crafts and the narrow gauge railway in the town. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    The cottage was beautiful - a lovely mix of old style cottage and modern design, very well equipped, lovely and warm ( vital for early March and snow!) and constant hot water too. Clear but friendly instructions about the facilities and how everything worked - and lots of little extras such as a welcome basket with tea, coffee and biscuits. Emma , the caretaker was lovely , thoughtful and very helpful with information about the local amenities. Love to visit again!

    excellent value Alston is a tired and what appears to be a little struggling Market Town. However the people are very friendly and helpful. Surrounding countryside is AONB

    Excellent stay in the cottage, Centre of busy town with interesting and individual shops. There was ample space for us all, it was cosy, clean and tidy with the welcoming hospitality pack. We would all recommend it to others and come again ourselves. Thank you!

    The cottage was nicely presented, I was dissapointed with the 'sun room' it faced onto buildings and it would be a struggle to see a sunset! No comfy chairs and looked like it was used for storage. It would be helpful to indicate that the built in fridge doesn't work and to use the stand alone one, overall the kitchen is well equipped some of it could do with an upgrade. The area it is in is beautiful and enjoyable to visit. Parking was a little difficult at times. I wouldn't return because I don't like to go to the same place twice.

    A brilliant cottage for a family weekend away. With toddlers we couldn't get very far so the location was ideal. Shop and local pubs on the doorstep aswell, and on our last day we found a great Park on the doorstep also. Great weekend!!
