“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 21 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Nice cottage well kept and in good location. Ideal for 2 people.Cottage is 3 min walk from the main street of Alston. Had never been to this town before and it was well worth a visit. It is ideally placed for walking and travelling on to the lake district.Having been however it was not the sort of place that I would say I must go back there.After a days walking or driving there are a few pubs where you could spend a relaxing evening. Our favourite was the Angell Inn which was small cosy and friendly . On the opposite side of the scale we found the Turks Head to be awful. A lot of beer was out of stock and I am afraid the attitude was oh well you will just need to have something else. For a one off week Alston is worth the trip.
