“Little gem of a cottage”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

I stayed here with my husband and two children during the May half term holiday. It was a last minute booking that far exceeded my expectations.
The cottage itself is really lovely. Everything is done to a very high specification, from the quality of the bed linens, the well equipped kitchen to the cosy yet stylish rooms. The welcome basket was a thoughtful touch. Alston itself is much more picturesque than I imagined. There are some really nice walks straight from your door. There are also some lovely artisan food stores in the village itself. On the subject of being straight from your door there is a pub called the Angel very nearby that I would thoroughly recommend for very reasonable home cooked meals if you want an escape from cooking.
In all we had a really enjoyable week and I would definitely make a return booking.
