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.

Why visit somewhere as breathtaking as the Nent Valley only to shut yourself away from the views? At Sunrise Cottage you can wake up to spectacular scenery every day, and immerse yourself in the clean air and vast landscape of one of Englands most unspoilt places. Located on the edge of Cumbria, near the border with Northumberland and Durham, the cottage sits above Nenthead, England's highest village, which is a pleasant 20 minute walk away.  There are plenty of footpaths and bridleways right outside the door, leading to lakes, waterfalls, historic ruins, and endless vistas.  The small market town of Alston is just four miles away and has all the essential shops, pubs, and garages, and the Nenthall hotel and bar is about a mile and a half. Comfortably sleeping four people in two bedrooms with the potential for a cot or small folding bed, this well equipped, dog-friendly holiday cottage is ideal for couples and families looking for a self-catering break.
