Why Colin Robertson chose Alston
We didn't buy this property to be a holiday let this is part of our family home and farm. We hope you will enjoy the farms setting and our sympathetically renovated property that boast all the modern conviences alongside traditional features.
What makes this Cottage unique
You are on site and welcome to enjoy the farm experience if you wish. We believe our property offers a really good venue for family celebrations and get togethers as we are located centrally in the country. The house itself boasts a large kitchen with dining table capable of seating 16 people comfortably. We also have a large lounge which again has sufficient comfy seating for all 16 guests.

From the M6 the farmhouse is 30 minutes away along the Hartside Pass (A686), voted one of the AA's top 10 drives in the world. From the A1 the farmhouse is 1 hours drive passing through Hexham Market Town and in our opinion the views are equally breathtaking.
Our nearest train station from the West is Langwathby or Penrith, from the East you could head to Hexham or Newcastle. We are approximately 30-40 minutes taxi ride from Hexham or Penrith.

There are also bridleways and cycle tracks including the famous C2C cycle way just a mile from the farm gate.
