The England region

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.

Alston

Places within approximately half to one hour's drive: Hadrian's Wall, Lanercost, Hexham Abbey, Blanchland, Durham cathedral, castle and historic centre, Beamish, Hamsterley Forest, Raby Castle, The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, High Force, Richmond and Swaledale, Penrith and Ullswater, Keswick, Carlisle, Kielder Forest, Scottish borders.

Local events:
Alston sheepdog trials and Gala day in June, Alston agricultural show in September, Garrigill bonfire night in November and Christmas craft fair first weekend in December.

“Complete Cumbrian Comfort and Relaxation”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

We have stayed twice at Naworth in Feb and Sept - returning in Sept following an excellent snow covered Feb. Sonia and Peter who's property it is were excellent and very welcoming. Naworth is beautifully decorated (and designed by Peter an architect). The kitchen is comfortable for meals and warm even in winter. The sitting room has a gorgeous view of Alston's main church and graveyard - relaxation in plenty watching various birds hopping from tree to tree. We happily lay on the comfortable sofa watching birds or watching Cumbrian dvds provided by our hosts. We spent many nights soaking in the voluminous bath followed by watching stars through the bedroom roof window! We liked that Sonia and Peter have a "green" approach to life. It is quiet and restful in this part of Alston and with easy access to the Co-op, local health food shop and organic baker what more is needed? Alston also has many enjoyable local walks but is also within close reach to great historical sites. We have been to Alston 8 times (other cottages and also b&bs) and we believe Naworth to be the best we have found. We could not recommend it more highly and the flexibility and kindness of Sonia and Peter are an additional plus.
