The Cumbria region

Watergreens Farm, located one mile from the North Pennine Town of Alston which at 1000 feet above sea level makes it the highest market town in England, and because the town had changed so little since Dickens’s day it was the perfect setting for the BBC film “Oliver Twist” .

With its cobbled streets and historic buildings dating from the 17th Century Alston is a bustling town with a reputation for delicious locally made specialities such as Cumberland Mustard and Alston Cheese.

Train buffs will enjoy the South Tyne Railway the highest narrow gauge in the country with both steam and diesel locomotives which run the 2.5 miles between Alston’s restored station and Kirkhaugh.

Alston, in the heart of the North Pennines, abounds with natural beauty, historic sites, wildlife, uncrowded trails, cycle ways and compelling countryside set in a designated area of outstanding beauty with unforgettable

views in every direction.

Come and escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the North Pennines, England’s last great wilderness.

We are ideally situated for Hadrian's Wall, The Scottish Borders and The Lake District.
