- From Alston market square, drive down the cobbled street and turn left.

- Go past the petrol station and over the bridge then turn right onto the A689 Brampton Road. 

- Coachman’s Cottage can be found on the right just after the first group of houses with our      Pennine Country Cottage board displayed on the white picket gate. There is parking for one vehicle beside the cottage.

lovely cosy comfortable cottage , every thing you needed, pet friendly and in a very quiet area with nice walks, highly recommended, the only downfall is the parking space its very small out side of front door so anyone with a large car might have difficulties

Thank you for your lovely review we are pleased you have enjoyed our cottage.

Lovely wee cottage, well equipped, quirky and a lovely wee home from home. Cottage within a ten minute walk to Alston which has a nice bakery, butchers and places to eat. Beautiful little garden, safe and enclosed for the dog. Lots to see and do within a 30-45 minute drive. Alston Railway was well worth a visit and the Langford Beck Hotel does a fabulous steak pie. Parking is a bit of a squeeze but would definitely recommend this cottage.

Many Thanks for the lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay at our cottage.
