The Lake District

Cumbria is England's second largest county and has most of England's lakes, England's highest mountains and England's highest café. It also has all the Lake District National Park, part of the Yorkshire Dales and part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the middle is the Eden Valley, an unspoilt haven, close to the Lakes but far from the crowds.At the heart of the North Pennines ‘Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, Alston is an excellent base to explore this relatively undiscovered and unspoilt area, with its natural landscapes, tumbling waterfalls, and wealth of wildlife. Alston is a historic town with a good range of individual 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 on 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, it 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 to the south-east, the Yorkshire Dales to the south, and the Lake District to the west - all within an hour’s drive.

"Perfect for a birthday surprise"

I booked this cottage for my boyfriend's birthday and it was perfect for our needs. I had arranged for us plus friends to stay there for 3 nights. The March weather (wet and windy, the week before Easter) did nothing to dampen our spirits and the first floor fire kept us lovely and cosy. Paul, the owner, was very welcoming and made us feel at home. He explained what he had done to counteract a bad review for the cottage. If you read that review, ignore it. I'm really not sure what their issue was! Between our group of 9 we were all accommodated comfortably and used the kitchen for a big brunch every day. It's a cute and quirky cottage that is great for medium-sized groups. There is no mobile phone signal but when you're away from it all why should that bother you. The pub in the village should be open now. It was due to open the week after we stayed there. Alston is about 3 miles away. It's worth a visit. And this is a truly beautiful part of England, it's worth driving around. You're not too far from the Hartside Cafe either. Makes for an excellent stop-off the day you're due to leave! Overall, this is a nice, comfy and cosy cottage.

Glad you enjoyed yourselves, thanks for the review. Paul and Angela
