They have each been awarded four stars from Visit Britain and the Enjoy England Gold Award for outstanding quality. Each cottage has its own individual charm and distinct character, incorporating a wealth of attractive features including solid oak floors, exposed beams and many other interesting little details. The cottages are tastefully furnished with a blend of contemporary and country style furnishings to a very high standard, including paintings and prints by artists from our local region, creating the perfect ambience for a relaxing holiday at any time. At the heart of the North Pennines ‘Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ Alston is an excellent base to explore this largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, with its wide sweeping landscape, tumbling waterfalls, and a wealth of wildlife and wild flowers. Alston is a market town steeped in history with a good range of speciality shops, tearooms, local crafts, and character inns serving traditional ales and good food. You can forget your car and enjoy many good local walks right from the doorstep, from gentle riverside rambles to challenging hikes across the fells. Local attractions include the South Tynedale Railway and the Hub Museum both run by volunteers, and Killhope lead-mining museum reflecting how the area’s geology has shaped its history. At the hub of five routes, Alston is also an ideal centre for exploring Hadrian’s Wall and Northumberland National Park to the North, Durham City (world heritage site) to the east, beautiful Upper Teesdale and the Yorkshire Dales to the south, and the Lake District to the west - all within an hour’s drive.
