Situated in Alston, No6 @ Globe Lane, Alston features accommodation with a patio and free BT broadband and WiFi. The apartment has garden views and is 38 km from Hexham. A really comfortable, cosy apartment. Feels like a little cottage, just has another apartment above. Well kitted out, a great mix of modern and traditional. Well equipped kitchen, we were able to cook without any issues. Great location, easy parking. Alston is a lovely little town with beautiful scenery all around. Fish and chip shop is well worth a visit. We'd love to come back when things are more normal so we can try out the pubs :)
Old Headmasters House is set in Alston. The property is 38 km from Hexham, and complimentary private parking is offered. Everything! Very spacious, bathrooms for everyone. Pool was a very nice touch. The area is great aswell, lovely walks by the river.
Alston is a great base for Walking, Cycling or just chilling. It's got a number of nice pubs, a couple of cafe's, shops and takeaway's.. the people are friendly and the the market square is just lovely. The town is steeped in tradition and it's well worth reading about it before you go, it makes for a more 'interesting' stay. The Fish and Chip shop is excellent and there is a lovely Indian restaurant within the Victoria Inn. Blueberry's Cafe is great for breakfast and lunch and the Turks Head is a lovely old traditional pub. We also like the Cumberland Inn, sitting out on the back terrace is wonderful on nice sunny day. It is quite hilly so be prepared for that but it does add to the character of the place
Alston is a quiet place but has all you need and central to a number of tourist attractions. Railway runs in July, not open when we were there. English Heritage properties, High Force, Low Force fantastic short walks around the area great. Cyclists would enjoy the area. Not too far from the coast had a lovely day out and Sunday lunch in Cockermouth.
It was a very nice and friendly place, once all the restrictions are lifted I'm sure the cafe's and bars will soon be back in full swing. Alston is also a great base to go off and explore the Pennines. The old buildings and cottages are to be admired and appreciated.
Nice little town, varied small shops selling quality goods, gifts for all pockets. Coffee shops, very tasty bakery /tea room, outdoor attire, fish chip shop, take away's Sunday dinners!., pubs and restaurants, pharmacist. All this in the lovely cobbled streets, in the backdrop of Alston moor. People seem to be only too pleased to welcome visitors. Walks and nature reserves, woods , water falls all in easy reach. If you like to walk, cycle , hike and enjoy nature and support conservation, come along to Alston you shall not be disappointed.
Quaint Village. Plenty shops, pubs. Nice walks. Angel pub - lovely food, but felt there were too many people in. Cumberland Arms - quiet, well-spaced tables. Fish/chip shop... Nice fish. Large chips could have fed 4 people, not greasy. Also recommend pizza shop next door... Tasty, not greasy. Good social distancing measures/sanitiser/masks worn in shops. A lot of cobbled streets.
Alston seemed a small town with a community spirit. There was a band playing in the bandstand. There were no restaurants open just 2 pubs that offered food. It was Saturday afternoon and a little quite.
Super friendly and welcoming owners, bright, warm and comfortable room. Lovely, fresh and tasty breakfast Very quiet through the night. Slept very well.
Sunday evening there is no dinner service but we were offered sandwiches anyway. This was the friendliest village we visited.
The friendliness ,location, value for money and scenery
All quite fitting for a country hall hotel
