This family-run, 5-bedroom traditional pub overlooks the River South Tyne. It has traditional cider and cask ales, homemade bar meals and welcoming, friendly staff. Alston is the highest market town in England and is 29 km from the M6 and the Lake District. The Cumberland Hotel is an ideal stopping-off point on the C2C cycle route and Pennine Way. Some bedrooms have beautiful views with a backdrop of the North Pennines. There is secure storage for bicycles and dogs, as well as a beer garden and a patio. There are opportunities to walk, hike, cycle and play golf in the local area. The South Tynedale Railway is not far.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.4 for a two-person trip.
