- SQM 1
This contemporary luxury holiday cottage sleeps four in one large and one twin bedroom. The cottage’s historical origins are said to date back to medieval times. The apartment is a conversion of an old stone two-storey lean-to building dating from the 1700s or possibly earlier. It gets its name from an inscription on a stone bearing the name of Lady Dorothy Howard of Naworth Castle, which we found in the wall of what is now the kitchen. This is a light and airy apartment, an upstairs living/dining area that leads through French windows onto a balcony with a peaceful view of the churchyard – a place where you can relax and also 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 un-spoilt panoramic views of moorland and an abundance of wildlife.
Our art apartments are well-insulated and headed by energy-efficiant gas boilers. We use low-energy light bulbs to reduce energy consumption, and operate a recycling policy, so we ask you to sort your rubbish into the containers provided.
