Fab Cottage

We had a wonderful week at this gorgeous cottage. A short drive from the village of Alston you will find the cottage at the bottom of a short track. The owner thoughtfully provided a welcome pack including complimentary tea and biscuits for our arrival and complimentary vanity packs. The cottage itself sits in an idyllic garden which compliments the cottage, complete with outdoor furniture. Once inside, there’s a spacious hallway with plenty of room for muddy boots and more than enough space in the adjoining utility room. We loved sitting in the lounge looking out at ‘that view!’ I had more than one cup of tea sitting on the window seat watching the passing sheep and rabbits! Luckily we had great weather but if you don’t there’s an enormous wood burner to keep you warm for hours. There’s a second room with a couple of comfy chairs which are perfect for simply enjoying the view. The kitchen has everything you need, like the rest of the house, it’s clean and well equipped. With a large circular table by the window. We had a leisurely breakfast every morning. Upstairs doesn’t disappoint. The bedrooms are lovely and have plenty of drawer space and hangers. The beds are really comfortable with a very high standard of soft furnishings and of course you cannot wake up to a better view. We didn’t want to come home from this cottage, if you can’t relax here, you never will! Nikki and Dave

Perfect cosy country cottage

Had the most perfect Easter break at Ashgillside Cottage near Alston. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and chilled out which is exactly what we were looking for. The cottage is set in a beautiful location with stunning views. The amenities inside the cottage were excellent with the highlights being the log burning stove to make the evenings lovely and cosy and the bed was so comfortable along with the lovely luxurious bedding making it difficult to get of bed in the morning!!. A car is advisable if you want to visit the near by villages and towns such as Alston to get your supplies in. We were lucky that the weather was good so we had a few beautiful walks. You have to visit the secret waterfall which was stunning!! Surrounding areas are perfect for walkers, cyclists and runners and we had a lovely walk round Alston as well as visiting a lovely pub 20 min drive away for Sunday lunch. All in all we cannot recommend this cottage highly enough if you want to just get away from it all and chill out in a lovely cosy cottage set in beautiful surroundings. We will definately be back. Regards Stuart & Vicky-Edinburgh
