Comfortable and with touches of authentic character, Gilmore House sits just a stone’s throw from the centre of the traditional market town of Alston. Small but full of character with cobbled streets and fabulous views, Alston sits as the highest town in England. This appealing terraced house offers guests the benefit of a living room with an open fire and an additional sitting room. Shuttered windows add to the charm and character of this traditional Victorian property. With the benefit of outdoor seating to enjoy a morning coffee or perhaps a chilled wine after a day’s exploring, guests will find the garden area a relaxing spot. Show more
Keen cyclists will be well aware that Alston sits on the coast to coast route, and for cyclists of all abilities the local area is a great source of opportunities, offering breath taking views and hills of varying challenges. Walkers will have every opportunity to take in the country walks with routes straight from the door. Heading further afield, local villages offer traditional pubs and tea rooms for a warm Cumbrian welcome. The picturesque North Pennines and Eden Valley offer plenty for guests to enjoy, while a short drive will take you into the northern Lake District and Lake Ullswater, perfect for a steamer ride to take full advantage of the picture perfect setting. The popular Cumbrian market towns of Penrith, Appleby and Keswick are within a short drive, and Gilmore House offers an ideal base from which to explore the area.
