- SQM 1
This contemporary luxury holiday cottage sleeps four plus one in one large double and one twin bedroom. Nearly ten years ago the site was used during the filming of Oliver Twist, when Oliver was introduced to the undertaker Sowerberry. At that time the site was an area of wasteland, but the apartment has been built here on old foundations, possibly dating back to medieval times. Sowerberry is an upside-down house, with traditionally furnished bedrooms on the ground floor and an open staircase leading up to a totally open-plan, spacious living area above. French windows lead onto a pleasant balcony with views towards the churchyard and nearby fells – just the place to relax or be creative.
Binoculars can be hired from the property with a refundable security deposit
Pets are welcome with prior notification and at an extra charge of £20 per stay
Alston, the highest market town in England, has good amenities including butchers, bakers, general stores and tourist information, a full list of which can be found in the cottage once you arrive. The local pubs serve an excellent variety of home-cooked food. There is a fish and chip shop, chemist, hardware store and an outdoor shop providing discounted clothing.
For days out, the cottage is ideal for local walks or cycling along the river and hillsides with unspoilt panoramic views of moorland and an abundance of wildlife.
