Town: Surrounded by a unique landscape of moorland, hills, rivers and waterfalls, Alston is set in the North Pennines and is England's highest market town. This intriguing settlement boasts charming cobbled streets and was the filming location for ITV's productions of Jane Eyre and Oliver Twist. Long associated with poets, writers and artists, the wonderful location of Alston still serves as an inspiration to the craftspeople that live and work there. There is a wide range of unusual, independent shops in the town, including quality crafts and galleries.

Lovely place to stay and the cottage is cosy and welcoming. The owner is absolutely lovely and really cares about you having a great stay. It’s a smashing historical cottage with a beautiful bedroom and living area that has been furnished up to a very high standard. Really nice carrot cake left as well which was a warm and caring touch.
