Garden House is a wonderful place to stay, right in the heart of Alston, but in a perfectly peaceful location. Janneke and Richard are lovely hosts, friendly and helpful and also very knowledgable about the local area. The room was a separate annexe from the main house. It was clean, and warm (it was February!) and the beds were very comfortable. There was a TV with Freesat, tea and coffee making facilities, and a private bathroom with powerful shower. A few steps from our door we also had access to a separate area which incorporated a kitchen with fridge, microwave, toaster, washing machine, etc., and a lovely conservatory where we could sit and eat, read, or watch TV. The breakfast was extensive, and Janneke and Richard were more than happy to provide us with whatever we wanted to eat each morning. There is also a lovely courtyard garden, ideal for balmy summer evenings! We will most definitely stay at the Garden House b&b again when in the area. Fabulous!

Thank you for the lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Garden House B & B. We hope to see you again.
