Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Alston

One of the highest market towns in England, Alston is found high up in the North Pennines in Cumbria. This incredibly remote destination is an ideal place to stay if you’re looking to get away from it all on your holiday and just enjoy the rugged Cumbrian countryside and some small-town charm. Despite its isolated location, Alston is known for its local culinary specialities such as Alston Cheese and Cumberland Mustard, and is also the starting point for the South Tynedale narrow gauge Railway.
