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.\nKeen 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.

    Great location. Decent accommodation for price paid. Stairs are very steep. Garden is not enclosed and consequently pretty hopeless for dog. Parking was difficult even in the off season. Overall not bad but too many negatives to consider again.

    Lovely cottage in good location in Alston. Very clean and comfortable and the log fire was very welcome.

    Spent a lovely Christmas at Gilmore House. The cottage is cosy with some beautiiful original features and in an absolutely brilliant central location for both Alston's amenities and country walks. We were delighted to arrive and find that it had been (tastefully!) decorated for the festive season. The listing doesn't make clear enough the "accessibility" challenges that the cottage might pose for anyone who is less than sprightly and sure-footed. My elderly parents joined us for part of the stay, and the very narrow and steep stairs were a constant battle. Also, initial access is via the back door over very uneven cobbles - we banned them from attempting that route into the cottage! But overall, if it were just the two of us (plus dog!), we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    Loved the house and loved the location



    out of 10

    Cottage was central and nice walks easily accessible, people we met were very friendly. Cottage itself was quaint but dated, in need of some tlc, lots of little things needed addressing, taps very stiff, door locks difficult, toilet took ages to refill, shutters in double bedroom didn’t close properly so light came in early, little things that if fixed would make a stay more enjoyable. The path to the back door was very slippy and uneven and the step into the bathroom needs highlighting, I know there is a warning on the door but I tripped up it on my way out as well. The cottage is very well equipped and has everything you could need



    out of 10

    Quirky cottage-ideal base to explore surrounding area . Lovely little garden area



    out of 10

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, although a shared garden this was not an issue as the residents who shared the garden were very nice and friendly.
